Canon EOS 6DSample Pics (Imaging Resource)

Imaging Resource, while working on the full review of the EOS 6D (price and specs), posted a full set of samples images taken in a lab setting. If you are following CanonWatch then you probaly know that the EOS 6D sensor produces less noise than the sensor featured on the EOS 5D Mark III (price and specs). Not bad for Canon's entry level full-frame DSLR, which by the way also sports WiFi connectivity and GPS.

Canon EOS 6D price check: Amazon USA, Amazon CA, B&H Photo, Adorama, Digitalrev, KEH Camera, eBay US, Canon USA, Canon CA, BestBuy

How To Remove A Stuck Lens Filter (According to Canon)

Ever had a lens filter stuck on your glass? Craig Pulsifer had the issue and asked Canon how to do to remove the filter. Well, Canon's instructions on how to remove the stuck filter are somewhat brutal, but it worked. You need a hacksaw, a hammer and some more tools. Don't know if you want (and are able) to treat your precious Canon glass that way. However…

See the whole procedure with description on Craig Pulsifer's blog.
