6D gave me really blurry photos?

Hello everyone.

I'm posting here hoping to find someone who can help me.

I recently got a 6D mark 2 to shoot my videos and it was all fine. Last night I was asked to take some photos during a meeting but I immediatly saw the lack of quality in all of them. I can't explain this absence of details even in the darkest enviroment or with the slowest shutter...

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.

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.

I wasn’t asking about that image. Previous statement said effect was seen in processed RAW as well as JPEG.

I use lightroom. 

And when i shoot nightclubs i use jpg m size, thats why jpegs are small size. its only about an 11megapixel photo

Is there a particular reason why you shoot J-M for those shots?

Yes, high workflow, social media requierements (instagram).

the photo is already 4 times higher than what instagrams requires. so no point making it larger.

I do raw L on weddings and more important shots like fashion, where i know there is a high chance for the photos to be printed larger or in better dpi.

Sorry, but that statement is complete nonsense.  

 

Your initial "club" photo that you posted has full 24MP jpeg resolution, not 11MP.  Yet, it has only a 2.5MB file size.  The image has been highly processed.  It has not come "straight from the camera" as you have claimed.  Your credibility is zero in my book.

 

Like I pointed out earlier, a straight out of the camer JPEG file is too large to post in the forums.  It HAS to be heavily processed.  That is fact, which is not open to debate.  

 

I call balls and strikes as I see them.

stop making a fool of yourself.pngagain you, always trying to help the least, just please...stop commenting on this thread, you are not helping anyone. straight out of the camera

 

also check out the megapixel calculator if you think you are so smart, 4160 x 2178 gives a 11 mp image... jesus..you are starting to get on my nerves cuestioning everything.
