Re: The Low Light Struggling

use the AF assist beam on a flash on the camera.  I've focused on stuff in pitch black with my t2i and 430exII flash.  The only problem is I don't think you can use AF assist on wide angle lenses.  At least not with the 430exII.  I thought some flash triggers came with AF assist beam on the transmitter as well.

The 6D is still fairly new to me but so far I have been really impressed with the low light autofocus.  I doubt there are many that can do as well without IR assist or annoying in-camera flashlights.
