Check out www.lensrentals.com Roger has taken apart a 6d and done some focus tests also. I hope we see what the camera can do as far as dynamic range, high iso, and IQ soon.

Enjoy.

Last thing I want to see about a new camera is it being stripped-down. First thing I want to see are the images it can produce.

I didn't check out anything really useful, like what kind of pictures it takes
At the office, I don't even have a puppy to take pictures of, so the options are
1) take pictures of test charts or 2) take it apart.

However, one thing I did find out: the WiFi is absolutely awesome, we were taking shots at one end of the building and looking at them on an iPad 80 feet and 4 rooms away. WiFi that actually works, quickly and easily, now that has some uses for me.

I actually like that you take things apart Roger, it shows us things that we won't be doing ourselves and also reveals the quality of the build and hints to the reliability of the product. Good to hear on the wifi. High iso seems to be looking good also.

Thanks Roger!
Looked over your strip down of the 6D and was pleasantly surprised with the clean design, reminds me of Google's new Nexus 10 tablet. Lets hope it's design lends itself to affordable repairs when required.

Yes, it's a clean design, but I wouldn't characterize it as 'repairable'.

I was amused to see that the time-and-date battery isn't user-replaceable. I guess that Canon figures the battery will last beyond the planned service life of the camera.

I'm curious because I've never had one wear out, but then we don't keep cameras more than a couple of years. Those who've had to replace them, can you tell me how long it lasted?

Thank you Roger.
Any image samples like you did with lenses? Maybe in high ISO, JPEG and RAW?

I recently replaced the clock battery in my 5D from 2008. It was really easy, and cheap too. I tend to keep my stuff for a long time, so it's disappointing to hear that one can't change it oneself in the 6D.

The other 5D was manufactured in 2005 or 2006 (not sure, but the serial number starts with a 0) and its battery still works fine!

I changed Avatar's to go along with a blog post I wrote on (among other things) Duchenne 'creating' expressions by means of electric current. He made them to illustrate Charles Darwin's book The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals because people had trouble holding expressions for 2 or 3 second exposures. Not so much with the current applied.

I'll change back to the Canon Telephoto Crown of Knowledge in a few days

My daughter still uses my 20D which was bought as soon as they became available. Still has the same time / date battery & even the original batteries (both Canon brand) are giving good service.

Haven't changed the date time bat for my 40D yet, got it back in mid 07
None of the regular Canon bats are bad either, still holding their charges.
