Hey guys, I would like to preface this with the fact that I am fairly new to the technical maintenance side of photography, and photography in general for that matter. Long story short, I think that I scratched both my focusing screen and the other piece that that goes above it while attempting to clean off a big piece of debris.  My question is: What is the piece "above" the focusing screen is called? This is the video I followed, if you look near mark 1:03 you'll see the part I'm talking...

Is it possible to remove the anti-aliasing filter from the sensor on a Canon 6D? If so, who can do it, and at what cost? Other than the increased chance of moire in some images, are there any downsides to doing so? --Landscaper

Hi guys, I wanted to try the HDR option on my 6D but found that it seems to be missing from the Menu. There are two empty slots where the Multiple Exposure and HDR Mode options should be. This is in the 4th Camera Tab under Dust Delete Data. I've updated the firmware to 1.1.6 and tried things like disabling RAW to see if that would work but the options still seem to be missing. Any ideas on how to fix it? Any help would be great. Thanks!

While searching for a new camera body I came across an article which say "If you open the aperture beyond f/5.6, the Canon 6D's sole cross-type point falls back to operating only as a vertical line-sensitive point."source: http://www.imaging-resource.com/cameras/canon/7d-mark-ii/vs/canon/6d/This somehow becomes a deal breaker as the much drawback of a fabulous sensor camera is further pushed back into the darkness of cave age.But still people claim to be working just fine with it. Even the...

Hi,  I just wanted a quick opinion from 6D, 5DIII/II owners about a second body or system to complement my 6D.  Simple criteria - Cheap - within the 400-500euros bracket, small(ish). Quick background so you can see where I'm coming from. I generally carry a camera in my bag everyday to work (for 'just in case' moments, or the occassional photo for the books I work on). I love the 6D, but would prefer not to carry it with me everyday for various reasons. The other body I have is a 5D (first...

If you use portrait mode from the scene modes, what is the f number selected by the camera? For example, on my 6D if I select "portrait scene mode", the f number selected if f2.8 by the camera. (Not that I use these modes, I shoot A or M mode almost all the time - I am just asking out of curiosity).

Hello All,I have a simple question that I have been having a difficult time finding an answer to…just how much of a difference does a full frame camera make in relatively low light? More precisely. If I owned a cropped sensor camera and a full frame camera with identical lenses and mounted each to a tripod looking at a subject. What would the approximate difference be in the settings I can use? Let’s say, I mounted a Canon 6D(FF) and a 70D(cropped) with a prime lens, like the Canon 50mm 1.4....

Hi All--need some help please--got my Canon 6d and installed the remote app on my android smart phone--all went well with the set up but when I go to use it and bring the app up and click on remote shooting in the green screen it activates the shutter and holds the shutter open. I can then click the shutter button and it will close the shutter and open it right back!!  Also it isn't showing anything on my phone as if I was looking thru the viewfinder. In other words it shows a black screen...

About 90% of my photography till now has been using either film or slides (Pentax). Occasionally I have used both Canon and Nikon point-and-shoot cameras. I finally decided to get a Canon DSLR. Once I make this purchase, I don't plan to upgrade to a different body anytime soon. My primary areas of interest are landscape, portraits and video. I have read many posts here on DPR and else where on the internet and originally thought a full frame 6D with 24-105mm IS USM f/4L (being sold as a kit)...
