| p.1 #19 · Canon 5D Mark II versus 6D for Weddings |
Can I ask a serious question: those of you replying say sd cards are fine... How many if you actually do weddings?
I'm honestly shocked if professional wedding photographers would say that sd cards as the main capture medium is ok. Maybe if you're just starting out, but if you're seriously into it ... I just don't get why someone would be happy with that. It's different if they're a backup card but switching sd cards during a wedding would make me nervous.
But to each their own..
Well how about I ask you a serious question... have you ever shot with SD cards? You seem to be talking with hypotheticals here. If you're a butter fingers and throwing SD cards everywhere then yes you probably shouldn't have them.
I don't shoot weddings, but that doesn't mean I'm not constantly handling in high stress shooting environments. I'm an adventure travel photographer, so I'm often hiking (sometimes running), shooting, and trying to change cards at the same time. Because I shoot guided tours, I'm not allowed to tell guests to redo things ether, just like wedding photographers.
I've never run into a problem changing out SD cards. Also with a little planning you won't be changing cards in the middle of an important time in the wedding/shoot. I'll change a card out long before it's full if I'm in a short break in action or if I know something big is coming up. Obviously things happen and you can't plan for everything. But basing a camera solely off of the chip it uses is absurd. The chip has nothing to do with image quality, and frankly the 6D has better image quality and low light performance. Which I can see a lot of great uses for low light performance in weddings.
