Canon EOS 6D

Canon released a new firmware for the Canon EOS 6D (download).

Firmware Version 1.1.6 incorporates the following fixes:

  1. Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera may not first use the center AF point to focus, when the AF point selection is set to automatic in AI Servo AF mode.
  2. Fixes a phenomenon in which focus cannot be finely adjusted with specific lenses when shooting remotely with EOS Utility software.
  3. Corrects some Ukrainian language displayed on the menu for ISO Setting.

Firmware Version 1.1.6 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.1.4. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.1.6, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Which One Do You Need, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 6D, 1D-X, or 7D Mark II?

Nice 10 minutes video by Jared Polin of FroKnowsPhoto comparing Canon’s high-end DSLRs. It’s a fast paced comparison of features and strengths of the EOS 5D Mark IIIEOS 6DEOS-1D X, and the brand new EOS 7D Mark II. A guide to make the right choice in case you’re on the fence for one of these cameras.

And yes, it’s true what the reviewer says: all the full-frame DSLRs we mentioned will get replaced in 2015 ;-)

Canon EOS 7D Mark II vs EOS 5D Mark III vs EOS 6D Video

In this video by DigitalRev, Lok C compares the new Canon EOS 7D Mark II to the full-frame EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 6D. Want to know if the 7D Mark II is the right camera for you, or if you should better go for the EOS 5D3 or 6D? Find your answers in the video. DigitalRev’s Kai had a look on the 7D Mark II.

The AF-system of the (full-frame) EOS-1D X is the best you can get on an APS-C camera, you get 10fps, and an amazing high ISO performance. Read more about the EOS 7D Mark II’s excellent weather sealing, the highly advanced AF, and the industry leading high ISO performance (have a look here too). All our coverage on the EOS 7D Mark II can be seen here.

Wanderment – A Time-Lapse that will Awake Your Wanderlust (and make you dream)

WANDERMENT from The Upthink Lab on Vimeo is a special time-lapse, one that reminds us how beautiful nature is. And a well made time-lapse too.

WANDERMENT is the result of a 12-month collection of 4K time-lapse sequences captured while hiking and backpacking in the Appalachian Mountains, and in California and Alaska. Contrasting landscapes are juxtaposed using color and b&w techniques. It’s a video that has a good chance to put you into reflective moments.

Among the many used gear there is a EOS 6DEOS 5D Mark III, a Rebel T3i/EOS 600D running Magic Lantern, various Samyang prime lenses, and more (full list here)
