Re: Canon EOS-6D preliminary hands-on review

I read in the 6D specs that the flash synch on the 6D is only 1/400? Is that really true? I have a 60D which has a 1/250 synch speed. Why would they weaken the flash synch for a FULL Frame camera which would cater to a semi-pro / advanced amateur looking for a good bargain?

I would think this would be a big weakness for many and cause those in the know to NOT buy the 6d.

Id love a 6D to have both a full frame and cropped sensor combo to have in my bag but when I read the flash synch  on the 6D I was surprised and turned off a bit.

Why couldnt they keep the 250 synch speed?
 what was the limiting factor? Weight?/parts?

I haven't looked up the 6D specs, but 1/400 sync speed is fasterbetter than 1/250, right?

The EOS-6D sounds like a great camera for those who want a full frame camera but on a cropped frame budget. I only wish it uses a CF instead of SD card. Interesting preview. Can't wait to see and try it in stores.

Re: Canon EOS-6D preliminary hands-on review

Sorry yeah I meant a synch speed slower than 1/250 of the 60D which would make it LESS desireable.

the next user posted the correct synch speed of 1/180 is is less than most other cameras even the Rebel series!?

Re: Canon EOS-6D preliminary hands-on review

The eagerly awaited Canon EOS-6D camera is available for sale in Asia already. My friend in Hong Kong has informed me of this because he has bought one already. It will make a very nice Christmas gift to oneself or someone else if you can't wait. The price is $2,299 but since I do not endorse any retailers on my website or blog, you can contact me if you want the name of the seller.

The camera should be available in North America late this year but judging from Canon's delivery timetable in the last few months, I would not be surprised the deadline will slip.

Re: Canon EOS-6D preliminary hands-on review

The Canon EOS-6D is an eagerly anticipated camera because it is the least expensive full frame camera and will be available in North America very soon, if the shipping deadline is not missed. However, it is available in many parts of Asia already. Johnnie Behiri has posted a full frame, HD video taken with a pre-production model of the camera. You can view the HD video here and decide for yourself.
