Finally a chance to have my first real play with the 6D. I wandered around during twilight yesterday shooting 800ISO handhelds with the 70-200. I think I am really going to love this camera.....

p.3 #4 · 6D- Early Impressions thread (for early adopters?)


Last night in the early morning hours I took some shots in low light in my studio, a single 100 watt incandescent lit the room.

Last year I stumbled onto http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/article_pages/test_images.html and downloaded a Datacolor Test Image he has zipped up on that page.

I wanted something I could print on my 44" HP Z3100 that I could use it as a reference image.

The AWB worked beautifully. I have an ExpoDisc so I tried a custom white balance and found I prefer the camera's rendition - just slightly warmer.

The print is about 16x24, and I was about ten feet away, shooting handheld, at an angle.







Resized only. ISO 6400, 1/100, F/4, 24-105mm at 67mm

Quick video I shot last night with the 40/2.8 of my 8 month old playing with his new piano.

1080/24P, IPB compression, straight off of the card.

OK! Everything got delivered today! I didn't have too much time to dig into all the new features, but I did want to at least get it set up similar to my 5D and give it a quick test.

With a nice big light, and cheesy processing that I did you're not going to get much out of this...similar results could be had with a 10D...BUT...you know what's nice? The speed. Everything just feels snappier, quicker, and easier now. The USB 3.0 card reader helps in that regard too.

I did try out one thing: wifi to smartphone remote app. I tried to pose myself, but the ambient was too dark especially since I had the settings set for the light. If someone hits the AF, the LV will open everything up to try to find something, and I was able to at least position myself a little bit. The biggest thing that came out of this little experiment was that the flash would not fire via the remote app, even though the shutter did. I'm sure there's a LV setting somewhere that I missed...but I found it odd.

Anyway, that's my super quick and non-technical first impression for you!

Great shot Rob! But the picture is still tilted. Was the electronic level not working?

I agree, it is a great and unconventional shot, although it does drain the pond.

Shot a friend's indoor casual wedding the other night using his 24-105 and no flash. I an amazed by this camera's files at high iso's.
These are straight out of camera.

High iso are very impressive so far. That's iso 8000 under artificial light processed with LR4.
