Meister Uberfernsehenobjektiv Petkal... ROFL.. Now we just need an image of the 800 IS hung on the wall above Petkal's TV.

How about "Doktor Professor Weissmeister?" The pijuns can attest to that.

You are all welcome. I am able to finance around 2/3 on my own now. So any donations are welcome and will be answered with more info about what the camera does (for me ).
In fact Canon should offer me one for one of the most read thread at FM within the last 2.5 month!

Ralph


Keep collecting donations Ralph - I'm sure you would love to report on the accuracy of the center point of the 1dx as well.

No??

No. It is a fascinating tool. A friend uses it. I could get it from him, when I would need it. But it is to big and heavy for my needs. I would prefere to spend the higher amount of money (if I would have it) to do one or two social photographic projects and travelling.

Thank you. Will have a look later. Looks like Bryans site is to busy in the moment

Works fine for me ...

I'm a little disappointed. The test pics look rather soft.

It is possible Carnathan got a soft 6D copy.

I dont believe a camera can be 'soft', it may have dodgy autofocus.

Or a dodgy operator ?

I agree. A strong versus weak anti-aliasing filter can cause softness, but one would expect that to apply to a whole line, not to an individual copy.

Well, say what you want, but I know of a fellow who felt he had a soft copy of DPP software.

Most of the pictures I saw till now looked somehow soft. But I saw a few too, that looked pretty sharp. So what could this mean? Weak anti-aliasing filter would cause all images soft, right? Sometimes slightly oof points to AF inaccuracy or user error?
ISO 100 & 800 here in the second set look more sharp than 5D II to me, 200 and 400 do not ... and at 1600 5D II wins against 6D and 5D III ...
I would tip on an marginal inaccuracy. But this all is based on 100% crops here. One would not see this difference in a whole picture, I guess.

No, a strong filter would be softer. A weak filter would give sharper images, but with more jagged lines and worse moire.

In the examples on that test site, since some images were sharp and others were soft, I'd say operator error was to blame, unless there was heavy noise-reduction being applied to some of them. (And unequal application of noise reduction would still be operator error, wouldn't it?)

I wonder if there's any way we could buy the 6D model without the GPS and WiFi for a good savings in money? I would never make use of those two features so why pay for it.

Canon site mentioned there will be a 6D variant model without built-in GPS and Wifi. Not sure when this will be made available though.

Picked up a 6D today.... Battery now charging

Will post some "24 TS-E RAW converted with CaptureOne7" samples as soon as I can..... if anything is going to be sharp, it better be images from that combination!
