p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · New (refurb) 6D + Minecraft Halloween fun


So I got my refurb 6D from Canon just in time to give it a test run before trick-or-treating time started.

My children love the game Minecraft (and to be honest, it's actually pretty cool....give it a whirl), so for this Halloween instead of going scary like everyone else does, I set up a Minecraft-themed decoration (built myself) and built the kids costumes to match.

One thing about the 6D -- shadows lift pretty darn well on it, I'm impressed. Nothing like crazy 10-stop lifts, but I was able to push shadows to 100 in testing on a few shots and saw very little (if any) banding. Not bad!

Just a couple of pop shots below, nothing serious (though I did some shadow work on my kid shot and it turned out fine).

So far I like the camera, outer points seem to work pretty well. I really, really hate the directional wheel, though -- too bad it doesn't have a joystick.

Shadows "lift"? What do you mean?

Very cool!

Yes! The 6D is first (maybe 2nd behind 1DX, I don't look at cameras way beyond my budget) to finally lose shadow banding. Glad things worked out well for you.
