Just got back from a ride through the Eastern US, carried my 6D and 1D and used both frequently. The photos of the muddy bikes were in the rain and 800 ISO, I was really impressed.

How have you liked the 6D? I am looking at getting one mainly for filming; but also for an affordable FF body. Been going back and forth between the 5D2 and the 6D... but leaning seriously towards the 6D.

Love this one!

I don't have any experience with the 5D2 but I have been absolutely thrilled with the 6D. AF is an issue at times for sports, but the low light performance alone is worth buying it for. Other than AF for fast moving objects, I have no complaints. I'm a very happy camper.

The 6D is amazing. I love everything about it (including aesthetics, its low mass for FF, the wi-fi, GPS etc). I found the AF more than capable for motorsport, but I have not used it (or tested it) for any other action. The only cameras I would think of getting rid of it for would be maybe an A7R or of course the 5D III. Even then I would prefer something like the 1D IV and the 6D over a 5D III (same price combo's going by what I paid for the 6D, what the 1D IV goes for here on ebay and what the 5D III costs new).

Looks like he has something in his cross hairs ready to dive. Nice capture.

Agreed. Great subject isolation and composition. Really nice.

Just listed my 1D3 in the marketplace... (sadly) If someone is seeking one! Having to sell to move to a 6D, which is needed primarily for shooting video.

Usually night games fully manual, based on lighting. Keep it wide open on aperture.

This pdf (external link) has been about the most helpful I've found for various sports settings. Check it out!

I know there are a lot of recent/relatively recent 1d3 owners like myself and if you search enough in POTN, you will run into FlexNR. You also might run into a lot of "Is PIXMantra still here? Is it still available?" I can confirm, he is still alive and that 2.3 is the most recent version. Got it a few days ago and finally figured out how to use it in LR/PS CC and it works like a charm. Definitely have more to learn, but the camera -> LR -> PS -> final image workflow is pretty straightforward, though setting it up was time consuming for me, a very adobe newb.
