Canon 6d review graham how to save lots of money fast clark photography

The 6D has canon’s most powerful image processor, the DIGIC 5+. The canon 6D’s DIGIC 5+ processor is 17x faster than a DIGIC 4 and 30% faster than a DIGIC 5. The image processor of a camera is responsible for reducing how to save lots of money fast noise at higher isos, and the DIGIC 5+ represents the best to date. The introduction of DIGIC 5+ also means that JPEG processing (finally!) includes chromatic aberration correction, based on lens profiles which are stored in-camera and therefore limited to canon’s own lenses. In addition, the extra processing power allows the 6D to apply chromatic how to save lots of money fast aberration correction to JPEG images. This correction is based on canon-created lens profiles, up to 29 of which are be downloaded and saved how to save lots of money fast onto the camera in the form of firmware updates. These profiles allow correction not only of lateral CA but how to save lots of money fast also of the harder-to-fix axial CA. Hardware & design

Holding the canon 6D for the first time the smaller how to save lots of money fast form factor and lightness are both very noticeable when compared how to save lots of money fast to a body in the 5D-series. It has a great balance to it and the ergonomics how to save lots of money fast are excellent. The top-case construction material of the canon 6D is a glass how to save lots of money fast fiber reinforced polycarbonate, which was selected to permit wifi and GPS signals. Without a built-in flash it has a very durable and rugged construction how to save lots of money fast without any play or flex. The internal frame is of course metal, and the 6D’s front and rear body covers are magnesium alloy. Build quality here is high, and I get the sense that the polycarbonate top-case is very impact and pressure resistant. The depth of field preview button is now accessible with how to save lots of money fast your shooting hand and the streamlined redesign of the button how to save lots of money fast layout has nearly all controls justified to the right, also accessible from the shooting hand. All other controls and settings are where you would expect how to save lots of money fast them to be. The shutter is hypersensitive, even more so than the canon EOS 5D mark II. There’s no lag in the shutter and the threshold from how to save lots of money fast autofocus half-depression to full click is just right.

Canon says that the EOS 6D is “completely sealed from external contaminants”. I had a surprise experience with gallons of seawater coming how to save lots of money fast down on top of me when shooting a golden gate how to save lots of money fast bridge sunrise. I thought the camera and lens were probably done for, however after drying it off completely all was perfectly operational. It would appear that the weatherproofing is fairly strong. On closer inspection of the doors and hinges, one may notice small sponge-like sealing which not only keeps the elements out, but prevents any play as a result of plastic-on-plastic doors or otherwise moving parts.

The canon 6D is the first canon SLR to have how to save lots of money fast integrated GPS. For everyday shooters, wedding or sports photographers, the value of GPS may be minimal, however the value for travel and landscape photographers is sure how to save lots of money fast to be huge. In addition to having accurate location-based data for every shot, the integrated GPS in the 6D also automatically sets the how to save lots of money fast timezone. Remember when you had to adjust timezones manually on import? Those days are over! An option in the canon menu system also allows for how to save lots of money fast the logging of location data even when not shooting. This can be useful when wanting to log a trip, a hike or a vehicle route. Non-canon 6D photographers can purchase the GP-E2 GPS receiver ($242.95) to achieve the same result, however with the added bulk on the top of the how to save lots of money fast camera. Another interesting development with GPS data is the inherent SEO how to save lots of money fast value attached to GPS coordinates in the EXIF data. It’s been predicted by some SEO professionals that google will how to save lots of money fast place emphasis on GPS data in the near future as how to save lots of money fast a way to confirm authenticity. Sounds like fun!

Many people reading this article are likely looking for a how to save lots of money fast comparison between the canon EOS 6D and the canon EOS how to save lots of money fast 5D mark III in addition to a review of the how to save lots of money fast canon EOS 6D. I won’t be providing a comprehensive technical review of the two, as that’s been done elsewhere, however let’s start with a real-world feature comparison in order of importance for travel and how to save lots of money fast landscape photographers, with GREEN having an advantage and RED having a disadvantage.

When the canon EOS 6D was released this past year how to save lots of money fast in december 2012, there was an immense amount of chatter as to wether how to save lots of money fast or not it was a worthy contender in the lineup how to save lots of money fast of full-frame bodies. You hear words like budget and economy and other things how to save lots of money fast like this. My impression is that this is all noise that comes how to save lots of money fast from millions of dollars of marketing, and if you’re looking for practical rather than theoretical advantages, the canon EOS 6D is one of the best cameras how to save lots of money fast on the market, regardless of brand.

Thanks for straight forward and clear review. You have clarified the issue of AF points for me how to save lots of money fast well and I agree that many more points is not how to save lots of money fast necessarily better but the low light AF of the central how to save lots of money fast point is very useful. I shoot a lot of classical ballet. Very tricky. The subjects are always moving, the lighting often low and extremely contrasty, (HMI spotlight on dancer in white tutu against black backdrop) and changes constantly both in colour and intensity, and you need higher iso just to get shutter speed how to save lots of money fast into the reasonable range for moving subject even with f2.8 70-200 L IS USM. I have a 50d that has served me well but how to save lots of money fast want the FF and low noise that the 6d offers. On the 50D (and anything else I’ve tried at the ballet) I’ve given up on auto exposures and go manual using how to save lots of money fast the spot meter and just checking the reading in the how to save lots of money fast bottom of frame and flicking the front dial with my how to save lots of money fast finger as I go. Can get a blister after 3 acts and 8-900 shots but it is way more accurate than ANY how to save lots of money fast auto metering system I’ve tried including a mighty 1D lll I borrowed. Similar with AF. I end up using 1shot setting on the centre sensor how to save lots of money fast only. You have to be a bit dexterous but it works how to save lots of money fast better than leaving it to its own devices on any how to save lots of money fast setting, 1shot, AI or servo. Just too many shots where it misses or latches onto how to save lots of money fast something else like the scenery or the backdrop between the how to save lots of money fast dancers.So the 6ds seems like a gift for what I how to save lots of money fast do. Sometimes less is more.

Your review helped me to go for the canon 6D. I shoot for the local paper for the events page, so I shoot everything that happen here in this small how to save lots of money fast city. I started with nikon D7000, then 5D mark ii and now the 6D, my lens are 24-105mm 4L, 80-200 2.8L and a 50mm 1.8. From proms, graduations, weddings, concerts, parties, to jockey, futbol, tenis, golf… to press conferences,.Everything else….Etc, I don’t find anything that I miss from D7000, or 5D mark ii maybe the duo card? No, the 1/8000? No, 1/250 flash sync? No. I am not saying that this camera is for everybody. We have say that i am experimenting the latest technology how to save lots of money fast on this camera, yes, I shoot and my imagen goes directly to my ipad how to save lots of money fast or laptop in my messenger bag getting my pictures online how to save lots of money fast faster than the other guys,and GPS showing almost the original place where the picture how to save lots of money fast was taken,…. The local paper is super happy for that, lightweight, best center point focus that ever use, it can focus in pitch darkness without the flash assistent how to save lots of money fast that bother people with that red light on their faces. Super silent shooter, I enjoy taking pictures during symphony concerts now i am how to save lots of money fast not afraid that i will interrupt the piano passages of how to save lots of money fast a violin concerto. The ISO is fenomenal better that the mark iii. I also love that it remembers the last focus point how to save lots of money fast that I use vertically or horizontally. I can shoot this camera with one hand pretty much how to save lots of money fast all the functions are in your right hand. And this without talking about the video features. Great for interviews and latest news reporters. I can change aperture without getting out of live view, and it has good waterproof but not to take a how to save lots of money fast shower with it…. So far this camera has served me well hope to how to save lots of money fast see more technology in cameras in the future. What is coming up from future cameras? ….We will see. =) thank you for your review!!

An informative and very useful review. I have owned and used my 6D for almost a how to save lots of money fast year, and concur with your observations and conclusions. Although I look after my photography kit,I was rather concerned at the vulnerability of the rear how to save lots of money fast screen , and purchased a GGS fine optical glass protector – which is virtually invisible, and has performed well – but an unexpected bonus was the ease with which grease how to save lots of money fast and finger marks can be wiped off. The kit includes a protector for the top screen, which whilst not as vulnerable as the rear LCD screen how to save lots of money fast benefits from this added invisible protection. I use the 24-105L and 70-300L with the 6D, and have found these to be a good match, but continue to be impressed with the performance of the how to save lots of money fast 40mm 2.8 ‘pancake’ for street photography. My next purchase will be an ultra wide angle, and I am torn between the 17-40L and 16-35L, but have also been considering the sigma 12-24 which gets good reviews. However I have been reliably informed that a new 14-24L 2.8 is in the pipeline, and if canon release it soon (at an affordable price) that will become my preferred choice. I was tempted away from the sigma because the lens how to save lots of money fast data stored on the 6D is restricted to canon lenses how to save lots of money fast – I assume that if the 14-24L is launched this year, it will be possible to download correction data for it how to save lots of money fast soon after launch. For landscape work it should be the best match for how to save lots of money fast the 6D, but I would be pleased to hear your views (and of course other contributors to your blog). One certainty is that you will be able to purchase how to save lots of money fast the 14-24L in the US long before we will see it how to save lots of money fast here in UK shores!
