Jimmy jang Boo: Can a 24 megapixel Bayer compete with a 46 megapixel Foveon X3?
If not, why would anyone buy an RX-1?
>why would anyone buy an RX-1?
Because I'm pig-rich or staring nuts. No, seriously, it's a fine tool, only a tad dear. I'll just have to limp along with my RX100.
mpgxsvcd: I don't need 1200mm in my telescope. Why would I need it for terrestrial work?
1200mm/50mm = 24 diameters magnification.
In the photographic world, this is huge.
tipple: maybe it's just my eyesight but, why do so many of the sample pics look out of focus?
Great post, Marike. Informative. Thank you.
ybizzle: 20.1 MP!!!! I pre-ordered mine. ;)
I still use my 7 MP Sony P150 of the 2004 era. I like the minute dimensions and the relatively snappy colors. Plus, I dropped it on the sidewalk twice and it still works fine.
D1N0: For some reason I want to hit it with a sledge hammer.
It's probably because it clashes with your understanding of a meaningful life.
King Penguin: Effective resolution of 20mp? Er, sounds like marketing speak for 'it's not actually a 20mp camera' .......not that I care...........
I try to be as cynical as I can, but I'm always falling behind.
Hey, that's my ID portrait.
Yow! 20 MP! I told you this would happen, Murray.
Even if this initiative is indifferently implemented, it will goad competition to do it better.
Sometimes stampedes are good.
Specs do not abound. ;)
davidodd: 337 comments and counting..... What's that about 'no such thing as bad publicity"?Love mine. Love the way it feels, and functions. Great pictures. Good range of lens. Just about light enough to carry up a big hill without regretting it. Love the GPS and Wifi. Sounds mad but why not try one first???? Oh yes, because all the camera shops have closed....
aarif: I agree with the conclusions mostly but I don't see this as a con. At all
"Slightly lower resolution than all of its full frame peers"
I hope everybody's using SSD's, especially for the system drive.
And 64 GB is about right.
Benarm: Silver award is very generous for this heavily handicapped DSLR. Canon got away nicely.
That's better, thanks.
Lea5: Where's the D4 review? Where's the 1DX review? Jeeez...
Relativism and irenicism get us nowhere.
TripTrip: Attention to the percentages for the 83% 6D Silver Award, 82% for D800 Gold Award?? Rest of my idea on the test!
Attenzione alle percentuali 83% per la 6D Silver Award, 82% per la D800 Gold Award???? Resto della mia idea sui test!
There you go again, asking people to read stuff. ;)
veroman: As has been the case since the introduction of the 1Ds III and the 5D II, there appears to be a good measure of non-defeatable N/R applied at higher ISOs to the RAW files. There's a definite smoothing over of detail.
Try comparing the 6D to earlier, lower resolution cameras like the 1D Mark III. The Mark III is sharper and more detailed at ISO 1600 and up. So are the Nikon D3 and D700.
One might say this is the result of the images being smaller. I don't think so. I think the 1D Mark III (like others of that generation) simply wasn't designed to control noise in RAW mode.
Sean Reid, in his review of the 5D II, pointed out the non-defeatable N/R as well. I sold my 5D II because of it. It bothered me then, it bothers me now.
>mirror flop causing micro blur
Years ago, Herb Keppler pointed out that mirror vibration always degrades the image. One day, soon I hope, super-duper EVF's may make the mirror an anachronsm.
Of course, if you're shooting photos of an earthquake, you don't need to worry about mirror shake.
photosen: Good review, if really late. I'm sure the other options in the market are very good but this camera is just about perfect for my style of shooting... Just ticks all the right boxes... Now to sell a second hand kidney...
I sell slices of liver.
ThomasSwitzerland: Everybody will protest.
I wanted to buy this Canon FF. But the auto focus points, and the aging sensor, the old fashioned case from the 80s. No way. Thank you <dpreview> for this smart Award. I now bought the Nikon D5200 (no regret, perfect pictures) and attach my Leica lenses with special mounts. Time to market passed with that Canon FF. I could afford the 800E, but drop the FF all together at present tech status. Better sensor times and bodies ahead.
This generation of tech and camera bodies as per the reviews left their peaks for now. End of this year will be a great new wave (and investment horizon).
I'll take this to heart and stop obsessing about the 6D.
Ubilam: Why no built-in flash? A BIF is handy when you don't lug a dedicated flash.
DPR shot a lot of sample photos for the Sigma 35/1.4 with a 6D. See http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/reviewsamples/albums/sigma-35mm-f1-4-dg-hsm-review-samples
