Re: 6D gave me really blurry photos?

Thank you for the explanation.  But here's the thing, I have used 3 different lenses using various settings with the 6D Mark II camera and yet I still get the same "fuzzy" result in my images.  Yet when I use the 6D, also using the same various lenses in the same indoor environment, I never get the "fuzziness" in my images.  That is why I believe the issue is with the 6D Mark II camera itself, and not with the lenses.


Here is what is probably happening...

 

You are shooting in crop mode on the 6D II. 

 

I noticed that your images are tiny, any image that tiny would have to be produced by crop mode. I messed around with this mode on my EOS RP. It has the exact same sensor as the 6D II. When I shoot in crop mode the pictures look fuzzy in low light.

"You are shooting in crop mode on the 6D II."

 

I know of no "crop" mode on a 6D Mk II ?  All images are full frame.  A DSLR captuers all imagages at full resolution.  The only option is how it is saved to the SD card. The file size, image dimensions in pixels, and the number of images that can be captured are for what can be saved to your SD card. Not what the camera/lens sees.

The options are Large with Fine, Large with Normal, Medium with Fine, Medium with Normal, S1 with Fine, S1 with Normal, S2 with Fine, S2 with Normal, or S3 with Fine. However all are FF jpg, not cropped or a crop mode.

Re: 6D gave me really blurry photos?

I went back into my camera and found the "cropping" mode, however, my camera was not on that setting.  But thank you for the thought because you have caused me to look deeper into the camera's setting to see if the camera is on a setting I am not aware of that may differ from the 6D model that is causing this effect in my photos that are taken in low-lit environments.

Re: 6D gave me really blurry photos?

I will have to take some photos to show you examples of what is happening to my images.  However, please be aware that none of the photos posted in this thread belong to me.  Other photographers who are having the same issue posted those photos.  However, they may as well be mine because I am having the same exact outcome with my photos that are taken in a low-lit environment.

 

I am willing to accept that the camera is perfectly made and is doing the job perfectly fine.  Smiley Happy  I am now wondering if there is a setting that it is on that does not exist with the 6D model that I am not aware of that is causing this outcome(?)  I have to dig around in this camera to try to find the "issue".  For instance, I am wondering if it is buried somewhere in "custom controls"?

"Cropping" mode does exist on the 6D Mark II camera.  To find it, do the following:  

 

1) Press "Menu"

2) Scroll to the right until you get to the blue controls.

3) Scroll further to "2" and you will see "Cropping" listed as the first option.

That cropping mode is only used with jpegs to crop AFTER the photo is taken.  The EOS RP has the same feature, BUT it also has a very different crop mode that allows you to set a crop mode BEFORE the photo is taken.

"Cropping" mode does exist on the 6D Mark II camera.  To find it, do the following:"

 

I never owned a 6D (original) but I think the addition and improvement on the 6D Mk II was the introduction of 4:3, 1:1 square and 16:9 crop modes in addition to the native 3:2 image size, and I believe that is what you are referring too. It is not the same thing because the 6 series cameras can not use the ef-s crop line of lenses.

Although someone may have claimed "problem solved" it is not the case or cause of blurry pictures.

Do not be so harsh to someone only trying to help you.  Until you post a sample photo of your issue, then no one understands your issue, except for you.  Good Luck.


This is message #17.  It is located on page 2, and was posted Feb 2019, which is almost two years ago.  Still waiting.
