Updating firmware on canon 7d
This includes improved continuous-shooting buffer depth (to 25 Raws, up from the original 15), customizable Auto ISO, control of audio recording level for video and the ability to re-process Raws and rate images in-camera.
Technical image quality is extraordinary and the same as the 5D Mark III; megapixels mean nothing today, and the 6D looks great even shot at ISO 25,600. Improved from 5D Mark III Slightly more sensitive central AF sensor in low light. Neither camera has face recognition in its AF system, so the extra AF zones of the 5D Mark III don't do much other than complicate the system beyond all recognition. Finder grid requires using Live View, or an optional Eg-D finder screen. Slightly smaller LCD has plastic, not glass, cover and lacks auto brightness control. Image Sizes No cropping ability for professional 5:4 or other aspect ratios. If you work as hot and fast as I do, this wastes time.
The Canon 6D is the world's second-best DSLR regardless of price, right behind the very similar Canon 5D Mark III. Yes, the 6D's MENU button is on the left, but I program mine to duplicate the MENU button on the SET button in the middle of the big rear knob.
September 2015 Canon Reviews Canon Lenses All Reviews Plain-English Canon 6D User's Guide Canon 6D versus 5D Mark III. The Canon EOS 6D is the world's smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR. The 6D is pretty easy to shoot with one hand, while Nikons, like the D600, demand we always use our second hand to hit PLAY, MENU and other buttons.
I own both, and see and feel very little difference between them. Even if the price was the same, the reduced weight of the 6D often makes it a better choice for carrying all day. You can view and email images directly from your smart phone, and control the 6D remotely, all with a free app. Interchangeable focus screens, especially the optional Eg-S super-precision manual-focus screen for use with fast lenses. This is because the nubbin makes it easy to go back and forth, while we need to dance our thumb up and over the center button to go back and forth on the 6D.
If you're in the market for a full-frame DSLR for ultimate technical quality and super-fast autofocus for action, but don't want to pay extra for (or carry the weight of) the 5D Mark III, the 6D is about 95% of the 5D Mark III for a lot less money. The Nikon D600 is inferior, with worse handing, more weight, cheaper build and poorer color rendition, as I'll cover below. Wi-Fi for almost everything except replacing a card reader. Oddly, the 8-way thumb controller isn't as good as the 8-way thumb nubbin of most other Canon DSLRs.
