I took these shots from San Francisco Chinatown, just before they had their Chinese New Year celebration.

More Chinatown shots. I loved the colors and folksy art of the MagicBusSF.

Hey, everybody! I just bought one of these cameras and I'm a little bit annoyed with how complex it is (lol) compared to the 5d I've been using. Any idea why my files are all out of order when I pull them up on LR? Also, is there a way to delete all the images off the card easily aside from reformatting things?

I have a month to figure out how to work this thing before I go to Europe for a few days and I'm looking for any tips. Any settings I should have, how many images (raw only) I can fit on cards, etc.?
I bought two cards - a 32gb and 64gb, two of those 'wasabi' batteries and a cheap strap. I probably won't bother with video, I'll never turn on the wifi, GPS or use the HDR function.

The very first thing I noticed is how awful the AWB seems to be, and the colors just look terrible off the camera compared to the old 12mp 5d. I hope it's something to do with some settings in the (oversized) menu.


Anyhow, as I go through buyer remorse, what things should I know right off the bat? I did plenty of research ahead of time and just barely decided on the 6d over 5dII - high ISO capability and sensitive center AF were the deciding factors.

Thanks.


EDIT - I figured out how to sort things the way I want them. Not sure how it ever changed to begin with, but that part I've figured out, lol.

I've had mine for some time and what you are saying above sounds like you're talking about something other than a 6D. At least mine doesn't have these problems.

And you describe it as being complex......really? I've not had a 5D but I can't imagine it being that much more involved. Seems pretty straight forward and I came to mine from a 600D.

You say your files are not ordered...do you mean numerically? If so, not sure why that would be. When I open mine on my computer they are in proper sequence.

With regard to the AWB........heck, I never touch mine and the WB in my pictures is pretty much right where it needs to be most every time.

So, I'm sorry I'm not of much help to you here. I will say that it took me a couple of weeks to get used to mine. It definitely shoots differently than my 600D did so I had to change some of my techniques a bit. But at this point I have no desire whatsoever to get another body.

If it's complicated you need to spend time with it. Buy a book, watch youtube tutorials or whatever works. If you spend the time with it you'll soon see it isn't that hard to figure out.

I can assure you that there almost nothing that the 6D will do that is worse than the 5D or 5D2 or whatever. You just need to spend the time to learn how to use the camera.

Shoot in RAW only. White balance can be corrected in post as long as you shoot in RAW so unless you are on a deadline and need to have the photos looking right SOOC, set it at AWB and forget about it.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I'm starting to figure it out, but it's way different than what I'm familiar with. I bought an XTI kit from Best Buy in '07, replaced it in '16 with a 5d (which is older, lol), and here I am with a 6d. I've never owned a camera that shoots video - there's just a whole lot of stuff I don't need is all. Once I figure it out I'll be fine, but I'm not into tech so I act like I'm 100 years old when I get 'new' things. Watching my nephew today so I haven't been able to mess with it a whole lot.


I think I've figured out a few things already - the mixed up order of the photos was a setting in LR I didn't even know existed, so I assumed it was the camera doing it (never happened before).
The image setting on the camera was set to 'auto,' punching up the colors - I put it to 'neutral.' The very first thing I did when I got the camera was to flip the AF to the button the rear, change it to RAW with no Jpeg, and shut live view off.

What's the consensus on auto ISO? Do you use it, and when? If I have auto ISO turned on, in aperture-priority, is there a way I can set a higher shutter speed? I noticed yesterday that with my 50 1.8II that the shutter speed was around 1/30-1/50 or so. Maybe exposure comp will deal with that? Even with my 135mm on I'm getting 1/125 shutter speeds. I want at least 1/200 - nothing is in focus, lol.


I appreciate the responses, and apologize for the (likely) annoying first post in this thread, lol. I was a bit frustrated.

Out of 57 shots, this is one of the only ones in focus. It's also the only one I set the ISO manually (like I've always done).

IMAGE: https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4767/40554812352_7e790fee2c_b.jpg

If I put Auto ISO on, the shutter speed goes to 1/40. That's a problem for me. Is there a way around this without going into the menu and selecting a minimum shutter speed every time I change lenses??
My 35mm f2 IS is in the shop, but that's what will almost always be on the camera. I can shoot that 1/10, no problem, however, that won't work with my other lenses.

Ok, I think I have this sorted.
I set up C1 for my 85mm 1.8 - AV, Auto ISO, minimum shutter 1/125, focus on the rear.
C2 for my 135L - AV, Auto ISO, min shutter 1/200, focus on the rear.
My 35mm f2 IS doesn't need any min shutter setting, so I'll just shoot that on AV.

This 50mm usually collects dust, but again my 35mm is in the shop getting fixed. Rear focusing works fine on all my lenses but the 50 - the 50 doesn't have manual override.
My nephew took a 3hr nap, so I did some reading.

Looks like I may want to overexpose slightly with this camera. My 5d seems best underexposed.
