Canon 6D and my style. I have my own style of photography. Everyone who has been shooting has their own style, their own eye. For me, I’m very particular in my style. For the first time in a long time, two years ago I decided that I wanted new gear. A new rig: so I purchased a Canon EOS 7D. Right away I hated the image quality, or IQ of the 7D. I felt the colors didn’t “pop” for me, that they were de-saturated and blah. I kept that camera for about a year? hating every image I took with it. Toward the end of it’s life with me, I started to get usable images. But I hated even those. Wanting to get back into a full frame body, I couldn’t decide between another 5D Mark II (that would more than likely sit in the closet…again) or the 6D, which everyone said was superior. I decided to give the 6D a shot, I mean after all, everyone on the internet knows what’s best for me, right?
Right away I hated the SD format. I have Compact Flash cards and don’t want to switch. I liked the build quality of the 6D and I added a third party grip to help even out the weight when the 70-200 f/2.8 was on it. Having a superior camera meant I would have images that would allow me to see the face of Baby Jesus in every photo, right? Again, WRONG! I hated every image from the 6D. More flat, to me images. were much like the 7D, just nothing I wanted to put my name on. Unlike with the 7D, I didn’t suffer through a year of 6D, I got it in April and got rid of it in July. I’ve now gone back to my trusty combo of a 40D/1D Mark III. The 1D III sits in the closet for big jobs (Will see more use in September when I move to Cali!) View full post »
