Re: The Low Light Struggling

This is why I also bring my 7D to low light event jobs, and event jobs in general. I wouldn't consider the 6D to be an event type camera, with the exception of groups. The 7D is definately an event camera, capable of focusing in pretty crappy light, however...

IMO, the Canon camera/speedlight combo accuracy in low light is erratic for either camera, exponentially making the situation worse if the camera also can't focus (6D).

I dont get it though. I had a Minolta Maxxum 9xi back in the film days and it was deadly accurate in low light, and with a flash attached in almost no light...  that was 15 years ago... how is it that THAT tech didn't remain?
