p.1 #1 · How many 6D owners using WiFi?


I'm very interested in the 6D and from what I have read, the WiFi is a big deal. Just thinking of some interesting uses and just hope it works as seamless as it looks.

I never had the money for expensive wildlife lenses, but with WiFi, I might get creative and have a nice remote setup. Maybe come up with a remote operated pan/tilt setup.

Any other ideas?

If I could buy the 6D sans WiFi and GPS and save 2 or 3 benjamins, I'd buy one in a heartbeat. I've read a version without these features is available in Japan.

I've used Wifi a few times now and it is pretty cool. I'm looking forward to seeing what the developer at Shuttersnitch will be able to come up with regarding image transfer in their next release.

The WiFi is a big deal for me. I use it probably 1/3 of the time I'm using the camera and finding more uses for it all the time. I'll admit I find that surprising, I didn't expect it to be more than a playtoy, but the implementation makes it quite useful.

I didn't expect to get much use out of it, but its growing on me.
I love being able to stop for a cup of coffee while out shooting, pair with the ipad, and browse though shots. The resolution is good enough to judge focus go/no go, and you can star rate exposures, that later show up in Lightroom. You can move keepers onto the ipad, but the software only moves jpgs that are "optimized" for your device, meaning 1200pixels and less, but is cool if you just want to upload to an online service or email. I haven't worked with the remote shooting capability much, other than to confirm it works.

I've tried the EOS Remote app on my Android cell phone a few times. Works really well. I can think of many times when that would come in handy.

Besides the novelty of new (for me) tech, I've used it after my family portrait sessions. I will pair a tablet to the camera, and have the family cycle through their photos, giving me feedback on which ones they like...which then helps in the culling process. It was a big hit!

You can transfer images to a tablet, but the way I used it was to simply use the tablet to review the photos that were on the card in the camera. Much like pressing the review button, you can view the image, rate them, delete them, etc. Review is at a lower resolution that what was captured, which speeds up the communication between the devices, but still transfers plenty of data for you to be able to tell if you 'got the shot.'

So are you shooting Raw and then just selectively viewing some downsized jpeg on the iPad. How long does it take to view the image on the iPad?

Watch this demo closely, you can do an in-camera embedded jpeg review; not transferring any files between devices; nothing is stored to the phone/tablet, they are just used as a viewer kind of like like the liveview screen.

Except this viewer is used after-the-shot and they've added touch/pinch to the viewing features so you can move an image around to view the edges or any area, and zoom in and out; pixel peep; on smartphone or tablet, any device that will support an iOS or Android App.

The app seems to be quite a simple design, one that might be enhanced later in a future release, but quite useful now.

I'm curious about the RAW + JPG settings and transfer times, too. A 6D may be in my near future.

I do not know how much a benjamin is, but given the price of tablets with wifi and GPS plus a ton of other things (like a touch screen, some amount of memory, etc), I would tend to expect it to represent at best $10 in the manufacturing cost of the 6D. I am quite curious why is there a 6D version without those features (my guess was that it would be required in some countries that would not allow, e.g., GPS, but that is obviously not the case of Japan).

A benjamin = $100 US. Benjamin Franklin is on the US $100 bill.

I just enabled WiFi this morning and have so far managed to use Imagebrowser EX to download the images from the cam to my desktop computer wirelessly. It took ten seconds to download six images.

Could it be used, if there was an attached holder, for shooting from the hip?
I mean use your phone display as it 90 degrees flip screen where you look down on.
The holder could be attached to tripod mount or flash connection.

I am going to try the 6D and Wi-fi with my TS-E lenses very soon. I already tested around the house and it works quite well.

I got a mini SmallHD Hot Shoe Ball Mount:

And the Glip Plus for the iPhone: http://www.studioneat.com/products/glif

This set-up allows me to take very low shots without getting dirty.

That looks great! Thank you!
Only I use a Samsung note, which has a nice big screen. May be I can find and use a carkit holder for that.
