trying to photograph kids indoor with 6d
Mar 5, 2013

I just upgraded from t3i to 6d. I am not a good photographer, to say the least. but I make that up by taking a huge number of pictures. 6d is probably an overkill for me,l but I love taking pictures so I bought it. I think I can still send it back. I was concerned about the slow AF. I do take pictures of kids running around, on the beach, roller coaster. I do not need to capture their every movement - I understand it is not possible with 6D.  However, I assumed I'd be able to take at least few sharp pictures. I figured 6D would do the job. The still portraits come out fine, however when I asked my son to run around the house the pictures came out horribl. I might have as well used my t3i

is it me or 6D is really so bad i can't even get one shot of my son running around at a relatively slow speed? I tried the same pictures with 430ex- even worse. Would Mark III do a much better job or should I get 7D? Am I just a very bad photographer who has no idea what he is doing?
