  • I have 6D and I have no need to upgrade. If I were to buy new camera today, I would go with 6D2. The focus system, DPAF for video, and flip screen to me is worth the upgrade. I would add 1 more ...
  • My Photos database is already at 20GB already.  And I still have 6 years of JPG photos (from phone and old compact camera) that I haven't even imported to Photos yet.  So free iCloud storage is ...
  • I have GIMP downloaded, along with Rawtherapee and Darktables, since they are all free.  These might be a great tools for expert that need these features, but not me. I don't need GIMP because I ...
  • Hi guys, thanks for the input. I tried out Mac Photos. I am pleasantly surprised how fast it is as DAM. And it has simple editor that satisfies my needs for my phone photos. I'm actually tempted to ...
  • Windows is ridiculous that way.  Good news is that Mac OS does not have that particular problem. Yes, that is why I'm looking for editor for jpg.  I had Mac for years.  I know it has iPhoto before ...
  • If you found issues (whether real or not) with brand new Canon 6D, I'd suspect there will be high probability you will find issues with used 6D. So why go thru this trouble again? My take is this. ...
  • Yes, I asked the Mac OS Photos question on Mac forum.  I also did want to share my experience with DPP with fellow Canon users here.
  • Created discussion thread Mac OS Photos or Other Recommendation
    I'm changing my workflow. This is my long post on my experience Canon RAW and thus the reason for changing my workflow. You can skip this, but I link it here if you are interested ...
  • Created discussion thread DPP & Photos on Mac
    Hi folks, I just want to share my experience and get some feedback/suggestions. Situation : My photo library consists of photos from my current camera Canon 6D (RAW); from previous camera Nikon ...
  • Replied in 5D3 vs. 6D2
    Prior to 6D2, people looking for bargain were comparing 6D vs 5D3.  6D has better image quality than 5D3.  However, 5D3 has better focus system, better build, dual card.  So depends on what is ...
  • Replied in This spot?
    Here is my take.  You can take all the precautions in the world, and you might reduce your chance of being a victim.  But when something crazy like this happens, there is no guarantee you can ...
  • My experience was that Nikon over-exposes compared to Canon in matrix/evaluative metering, so I'd say Nikon is the "light side" and Canon is the "dark side". ;-) I started with Nikon D7000.  Then I ...
  • For real?  ;-) They are just reading off the spec sheet.  They are almost as worthless as the forum "reviews" or complaints on dpreview.  Only difference is that those guys have youtube and website.
  • Is it worth buying new lens for use ?  If you need it and have the money for this hobby, then yes. Is it worth buying new lens for investment ?  No, not worth it for Nikon SLR, not for Canon SLR, ...
  • Unfortunately, there is physics limitation. Frame rate (fps) = 1 / (frame acquisition time + frame read out time) Let's give the benefit of doubt and say electronics and read out circuit design can ...
  • Unfortunately, zoom lens with wide aperture won't be cheap.  One possible alternative is to go with 50mm f/1.8 for < US$110.  As others mentioned, it won't automatically give you out of blur ...
  • Hi OP, focus on the lens, rather than the body.  I doubt there is any significant user different between D7200 vs D7500, unless there is some specific feature that you need. Figure out which lens ...
  • They are very similar.  in my limited experience, I had better service (less issues) with B&H.  So if everything is same, I'd go with B&H.  However, if Adorama has better bonus accessories, then ...
  • Grats on getting 6D.  I got the 6D in 2013 and enjoyed using in past 4 years. On GPS, there are 2 modes.  Logging mode where GPS is always on so you can map your route.  Just beware this will drain ...
  • Hi OP, I have Canon 6D, which is DSLR.  So the viewfinder is optical, so no preview there.  Canon DSLR (at least 6D) will show on rear LCD as to what is seen on sensor.  And it uses simulation for ...
