A quick 5D & 6D comparison
Feb 10, 2013


I am renting a 6D right now and comparing it to my old 5D. After taking several Real Worldphotos with the cameras the old 5D still keeps up. I notice the 6D files tend to be smoother and the 5D's files show banding.  I resampled the Canon 5D to the same size as the 6D's in this sample using PS Bicubic Sharper. The images were imported into ACR 7.3 and the auto button was used, nothing else. Photos were taken with the canon 17-40L @ F8 on tripod and MLU.  Here is a crop at 100%. This is not a Scientific Test just a typical user test. I also tried DPP and it does get rid of the banding on the 5D files, but to my eye Adobe produces a more detailed image. I also used Photo Ninja, Snapseed and Sharp Raw Pro.

I can post more pictures if you like.
