Re: Not great images with new 6D. Please take a look and give me your thoughts

I haven´t tried the ML for 1.1.6.

Else you have the firmware 1.1.3 here.

Thanks Peter. Got it loaded. Can't wait to try it. Haven't even had the chance to use my hardware interloper thingy. I guess i can still use it on my 20d and 5d bodies.

Re: Not great images with new 6D. Please take a look and give me your thoughts

Hello there.  I agree with your post.  I have a 6D and find that the out of camera JPEG images are quite soft.  Much softer than my previous Canon camera which is a 70D.  Now for the fix, the Canon 6D takes amazing photographs but you just need to do the following.  

1st, always shoot in RAW format.  Even if you simply save from RAW to JPEG later it captures sharper picutres if you convert from RAW to JPEG in post.

2nd, to fix your issue if you want to shoot in JPEG as I sometimes do is all in the picture styles area.  By default the sharpness is set WAY to low.  I manually set my sharpness to 5 or so to get a truly tack sharp image when I'm looking for that.  I hope this helps you out.  I love my Canon 6D but was quite disapointed with the JPEGS until I figured out how to tweak the picture styles.  Good luck and enjoy your great camera.

-Mark
