I am new the the 6D, still have my 80D, and keep hearing about crappy dynamic range, listening to youtube videos you would get the impression that this camera is worse than a disposable digital camera.

This morning on the way to the gym my flag out front catching the light and the wind, of course as soon as I raised my camera the wind dropped, but after standing there a few minutes and telling the wind that I had turned off my camera and was leaving it came back..

Anyhow this was shot in manual mode (didn't realize I was still in manual) at ISO-200 f/5.6 1/180 on a 28-135 (left my 24-105 in the house)

I am looking for the noise, maybe my eyes are bad (well they are worse than 400/20 but corrected to 30/20 and starting cataracts, not the best monitor) but I don't see the noise.

Where is it? am I missing it?

Lift those shadows and then you'll see what all the fuss is about.

The 6D2 doesn't have crappy DR, it just behaves nearly identically to the 5D3 sensor. The 6D is actually a bit better in this regard.

To fully realize the DR your camera has, you want to shoot raw and then pull up shadows/curves to take what seems like black and produce image detail from those areas. On older cameras, you would get banding/blotchy noise and it is a result of an aging sensor design. Newer sensors do much better at keeping that electronic noise at bay.

Also this DR is only really available at low ISO like 800 orless.

Your 80D does pretty well too, here is what your 80D can do.

Noise is hidden in the shadows indeed. Why are looking for it?

Still learning.
