Re: 6D gave me really blurry photos?

It’s okay that this has you stumped as well.

Thanks anyway.

What is mystifying has been your unwillingness to demonstrate the issue.   What is mystifying is that you have had a new camera sitting around that you have not used for nearly a year, refuse to use, and have not tried to sell it.  

 

What this has really been all about are the links to your web site that you posted, promoting your photography business.  That is what this has been about all along.  You have fooled no one.

We should probably focus on helping folks with photography issues and not speculate on why people are here.

We tried and failed.  Her initial claim was that she had the same problem as the OP.  The OP did not understand DoF.  She said DoF was not her issue.  I advised her to contact Canon a year ago.  She has been uncooperative and argumentative. 

 

Posting those links goes against forum rules, anyway.

Re: 6D gave me really blurry photos?

Waddizzle, i think you need to calm down. I dont understand why you are being so aggressive, i came here with a problem and what im trying to do is providing every source of information you guys are asking me to, in order to get this solved.

Regardin you questioning my exposure settings, again, it has nothing to do with it, flash freezes very well subjects and i can even take photos at 1/6 of a second if there is no heavy lights moving towards their bodies, like in here.

I can agree with you that i would normally take faster photos of a group of people, but in this case, place was very dark and i wanted to try and catch at least a little bit of background.

What i would honestly like from you is to treat me with respect and instead of desperatly trying to prove im a bad photographer, try to understand what the problem is and provide a solution, if you are failing to do so, then please dont reply back, your comments are not helping.This photo was taken with very similar data (1/25 and f 3.5 i think it was) and theres no watercolour looking blur whatsoever.

Re: 6D gave me really blurry photos?

Waddizzle, let’s be clear on one thing. The purpose for my posting my web site was to demonstrate to you and everyone else who seems to believe my issue is an “end user problem” was so that you can see that I understand depth of field. That seems to be what everyone continues to go back to while ignoring the fact that I clearly (and, repeatedly) stated that I do not have this issue using my Canon 6D. The 6D Mark II does not perform well unless there is a well-lit environment.

Once again, I do not have examples to post because I destroyed the photos with the defects that Ignacio and I have been describing, and b) I no longer use this camera when I know I am going to be shooting in low-lit environments because I know what I am going to get from it.

By the way, you do not have to respond to my post. This is a camera user forum. Life is too short to be getting that worked up over someone else’s issue.

IMG_6790.JPGi am having the exact same problem than AndreaW, i feel you ! Also with the 6d mark II, also have been a canon user for the past 15 years, ive owned 5d mark 0,2 and 3, 6d and now 6d mark II, and this camera has something wrong.

it mostly happens with the area thats out of focus.

 

Of course i know what an out of focus area is due to the fact of using very wide apertures (this shot was taken with the 35 1.4art from sigma), but this is NOT how an out of focus area should look like, ive tested the same lens on my 5d mark 2 and it worked like a charm, so its not the lens either.

 

Look at the hair on the guy on the right, his hair is out of focus, of course, but does that out of focus looks natural to you? i was using a speedlight so movement there wasnt really an issue, and they were all posing for the photo.


I have been polite to you.  Your friend has been argumentative and rude.  She demonstrated she does not understand DoF or motion blur.  Her complaints lacked merit.  Curiously, you agreed with her..  How is that even possible when she posted no examples of her issue?

 

Just what exactly is wrong with thw above photo?  Where and what is this watercolor that later you spoke of?  Nothing that I can see.  Or, were you speaking about another photo?  Can you post a sample of it?

 

I do not see anything wrong with the photo you just posted, either  Posting "normal" photos does not help resolve whatever issue you are having.  As I have repeatedly noted, words and opinions are totally meaningless.

 

BTW, that one guy looks like Danny Seraphine with a longer beard than usual.

Re: 6D gave me really blurry photos?

Is this the area of the photo that has the issue you are describing?

Those streaks in the hair look like braids or dreadlocks.  The background is a "don't care condition", in my opinion.

Re: 6D gave me really blurry photos?

You said you were at 35mm and f/2.8?

The people in the rear are out of focus.  If the whole world does not understand your issue, whose fault is that?

Re: 6D gave me really blurry photos?

Well, honestly, im starting to think im crazy. You really dont see anything weird on that part of the hair you rightfulyl highlighted? thats not a normal out of focus, thats crazy, it has no details whatsoever, its like a mush of information instead of a what a normal out of focus hair (dreadlocks or not) should look like.

And the only reason i agreed with her (i know she didnt post anything) is because i have this exact same problem with the exact same camera, and i found her post when i tiped in google "canon 6d mark II gives strange out of focus" or something like that.

I did not bump into this, i was looking specifically for this problem with this camera.

Again, dont try to point at whose fault is it, try to be helpful. I know perfectly the subjects hair is out of focus, what seems odd to me is the way that out of focus looks like.
