Canon EOS 6D (8035B009) Black Approx. 20.2 MP Digital SLR Camera with EF 24-105mm IS Lens
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent full frame camera. Overall grip and handling is superb. Weight is acceptable, and it can be held by one hand. Of course, if you're using those massive L lenses then even two hands won't be enough to hold those lenses comfortably. The 6D is a solid performer in daylight and lowlight. It can handle high ISOs without any issues. We're talking about 25000+ ISOs here. Of course this will also vary in your lens. Those wide aperture L lenses will provide you enough light in lowlight. The 6D also takes great video movies, though I haven't tested that feature fully because I'm more into photography.

The 6D menu is easy to navigate. It's intuitive. Honestly, I have read the manual from cover to cover, but I haven't tinkered all the features in the camera (Make sure to set the copyright information right away and register your battery in the system menu). I focus more on practical usage. The WIFI feature is a nice addition along with the iPhone app. It's like having a viewable remote, though I don't use it often. I bought a separate remote switch controller since it's simpler to use than enabling WIFI and running the iPhone app (it's not that really complicated but the separate remote switch has the better tactile feel). I haven't used GPS much for fear of draining my battery (now that I have extra two more Canon batteries, also ordered in NewEgg), I think I can now safely enable it.

In the final analysis, the reason why you would get this camera over other models are the following:

* Canon-brand. It's a reliable name.
* It's a full frame camera and not an APSC. This alone will make a difference.
* Your existing lens set. If you've heavily invested in Canon lenses already, then you definitely need to get a Canon body
* The cheapest of all Canon full frame
* You value video but you don't care much about Moire patterns in video (5D Mark III handles Moire patterns far better)
* Weight is lightweight compare to the more expensive full frame camers
* New sensor and better ISO handling than higher Canon full frame models

All other reasons are secondary. By the way the included kit lens, 24-105 L, is a superb well-rounded lens. It won't disappoint you. That's another reason to get this package.

The negatives:
* Video is susceptible to Moire patterns
* No mic jack out
* No integrated flash for controlling external speedlites (Yes, that's right. You want an integrated flash for controlling external speedlites and not because of the light. Integrated flash are weak)

Cons: * Video is susceptible to Moire patterns
* No mic jack out
* No integrated flash for controlling external speedlites

4 out of 5 eggs Second 7" inch table 03/26/2013

This review is from: ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown

Pros: * Cheap
* Excellent display
* Up-to-date iOS
* Gaming is great

Cons: * Android is less responsive than iOS
* Sometimes the OS freezes
* Productivity and browser seems to lag more than iOS

Other Thoughts: This is my second Nexus 7 device. I'm buying this for a friend. Despite the shortcomings of this device, for the price and durability and usefulness, it's an excellent 7" inch tablet.

I'm providing a second review for record-sake (Please see my first review as well).

4 out of 5 eggs Superb 7-inch tablet 03/26/2013

This review is from: ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown

Pros: * Cheap
* Superb display
* Up-to-date OS

Cons: * Android is not as smooth as iOS
* No back camera

Other Thoughts: This is my first Android tablet, and I came from an iOS background. Hardware-wise the device is superb and solid. It has excellent display and great sound. The touch is responsive and sensitive just like iPad. The only lacking with the hardware is the back camera. There are times when you might need one though but not a big deal.

I think my main problem with this device is the OS itself. In most cases, I find Android to be somewhat slower or less responsive compare to iOS. But this only happens when opening productivity software and browser. The Google Chrome in iOS seems to be more responsive than the one in Android which is quite odd.

I've also encountered some random reset. I've removed an "egg" mainly because Android isn't as responsive as I want it to be. Well, the best thing about Android is I can play and read any format. If we're just considering the hardware, I would give it a 5 eggs.
