6D
« on: June 10, 2015, 12:49:45 AM »
I purchased 6D body a month ago. I am not retiring 550D. Is there a similar 6D forum or this forum will accomodate 6D issues? ::)

Congrats on the 6D!  I honestly don't know if there is a specific site (like this one) for the 6D but many of our members have moved on from the 550D -or did like you did and kept that one also- but they still hang out here because most issues are related and can usually be solved with a little teamwork.
Feel free to browse around here and hopefully we can answer any questions you might have about your new camera.
Also, feel free to post some photos if you want so we can see how that 6D performs!
Welcome aboard!

Nice work but that black and white portrait (the second one in that list) is amazing!

Agreed!  Really nice work.  I think you're right about the value of the 6D for the night shots of the market - spectacular.

BTW: 50mm works better with 6D than with 550D

I could be wrong but I thought all of my lens seemed to do better when I switched from the t2i (550D) to the 70D.
I could be imagining it, but I surely got that impression early on.

That's interesting.  I could see the 6D because it's full frame - so instead of a 35mm equivalent of 80mm on the T2i you are getting a true 50mm view, but the 70D seems strange.  Maybe better focusing capability, or a better sensor?

I'm thinking the sensor is part of it (maybe the biggest part) but certainly the improved focusing aspect has to be part of it too.  Mind you...it could just be my imagination on all of this. (or my WISH it to be true)
But I believe with the improved focusing abilities, I seem to have a higher ratio of good to bad shots and that might be where I base my opinion from.  ::shrugs::

I have to say I only moved to the T5i and the difference in focus was dramatic. the T2i is only mediocre at focusing.
