cadby: Finally ready to make the jump to full frame after 8 years with Olympus DSLR's. After considerable research and gnashing of teeth I pulled the trigger on the 6D. I really wanted to go with the Nikon D 600 based on DP Review and various other reviews, based on features, output quality and MP, but the ongoing concerns over the sensor dust and oil spots and Nikons recalcitrant PR approach to these issues pushed me to the 6D. I just could not imagine investing $3k in full kit only to experience ongoing sensor issues. I am excited to experience the full frame format and take my amatuer photography to the next level. How is Canon's photo management & editing software? Should I look into purchasing another package, and what does the forum recommend?
Fully agree with your comments! I was about to go to Nikon D600 but was so much disappointed with their no-customer (snob) oriented approach that eventually decided for the 6D. I couldn't be more satisfied for such a decision. I liked Nikon so much in the past (before digital era) they made so beautiful film cameras, but this is the past...the present looks different.As for the software: I always shoot RAW and develop with Capture One and that's excellent for other cameras, particularly for Fuji X raw files, but for 6D RAW files I found out that Canon software (Digital Photo Professional) gives better results. The only drawback of DPP is that it is very slow.
Rbrt: Those 6D test images look sharper than the D600 to me. Am I the only one who thinks so?
I disagree! At least you could use the old test scene together with the new one, otherwise we'll miss the possibility to compare new vs old cameras. Pls consider...
"Charlot" going home with his family at the end of the working day...Look at the white mouse on his hat!
You can see this man at Lipscani, Bucharest historical centre (Centrul istoric), dressed like Charlot, trying to get some money for living. I took this photograph in April 2011. Then I was there some months later and I saw him still there. Probably during this cold cold winter he is not working in the street... we'll see next Summer...If you enlarge the photo you can see a white mouse (alive) on his hat :)
