About me:

I'm from Florida, but living in France. I've been into photography for a long time, but I feel that I've only just begun. I don't know where I'm headed, but there's no use being late. Cheers.

fuego6: Nope.. don't need yet another sharing site... thx but pass.

Well, after Instagram lost a half of it's users thanks to their TOS update, those mobile photographers had to find another home and EyeEm is a good start since it has a lot of fresh features that Instagram and others don't have. So, I welcome the addition and I hope they don't get bought out and closed. Time will tell.

My camera would be a full frame DSLR in a compact-ish weather-sealed alloy body with great low light capabilities and WiFi and GPS built in.
Oh wait, Canon just released the 6D. Okay, never mind. They've already made mine. I just have to wait for it to start shipping.

For me, and apparently only me, I like things that do exactly what I want or need without a lot of overkill fluff just to impress others. Sure, the 6D doesn't have a million AF points. But I don't even use all the 9 that I have. "But the 6D doesn't have an onboard flash!" Good! I hate onboard flashes and I prefer to choose when or if I need to carry one around. I'd rather have something that has excellent high ISO performance and focuses in moonlight.

Anyway, I could go on and rant more but I'll stop. I didn't mean this to be a review of the 6D. Sorry. :)

JamboME: Where is the Canon EOS Remote APP for Android? None is listed.

Don't expect any "instant" look at your shot on your tablet via WiFi. How long does it take your browser to load a high res photo? Using a cable and Live View will be more appropriate for quick review on a HD monitor.

Voyeurs are gonna love the remote control and silent shutter though.

I'm a pro and I really needed a flip screen. Oh my aching back!

Photos loaded straight to the tablet.

Doesn't look too slow but we'll have to wait and see.

Donnie G: I am a photography enthusiast who enjoys taking pictures of people at fairs, festivals, and other tourist attractions. I shoot mostly outdoors using a run and gun style that has worked for me ever since my days as a wedding photographer. I have waited patiently for a replacement for my deceased original 5D body (destroyed in its prime by my then 6 year old niece, Brianna). For me, that replacement camera is the Canon 6D.

Here's why:

1). Perfectly compact one camera, one lens combo (24-105L) for what I do.
2). Instant backup in the field via wi-fi without additional accessaries.
3). Instant distribution of images in the field to social networks, etc. with a phone app.
4). 100% compatibility with my 24-105L lens and other accessaries already owned.
5). Controls are just like on my 60D, so there's nothing new to learn.
6). 35mm full frame still camera with quality video capture available when needed.

The motto, K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid), just works for me.

I agree. The 6D will be replacing my 60D and I'll be using it with only my 24-105L and I'll throw a nifty 50mm 1.4 in my bag for evening/night outings. No other lenses than that I think. No flashes either. I hate flashes and I'm really looking forward to this camera's ISO ability mixed with a 50mm 1.4.

I took a very similar photo to yours last year.

It's in my gallery: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/5131028732/photos/2022866/23062011-hd-0159

Great job!
