The Canon 6D is a 20MP full frame camera that steps up in performance from the 5D Mark II, but still offers a lower entry price than what the 5D Mark II did at its debut. For now, Canon’s full frame line-up will consist of (in order of sophistication and price) the 5D Mark II, 6D and 5D Mark III.
The 6D should offer improved dynamic range and low-light noise control thanks to larger pixels and improved processing over the 5D Mark II. Additionally, the 6D steps up to 4.5 fps frame rate over the 5D Mark II at 3.9 fps. Another kudos goes to the locking mode dial on the 6D – a small, but great, addition. [Read more…]

Canon is serving up a $400 instant rebate on the Canon 5D Mark II, which is likely being pushed aside now that the Canon 6D has landed. This puts the Canon 5D Mark II body at $1799 shipped and the 5D Mark II + 24-105mm f/4L kit lens at $2499 shipped.
Photography Bay reader Mayeul Akpovi is at it again with the second part to his solid timelapse work in Paris. Paris in Motion (Part II) continues with the stunning scenery we showed you in Part I back in August.
He moved the tripod by hand for 3500 shots that made up this video. And, in some cases, he handheld the camera and moved himself in as straight a line as possible to create the moving timelapse effect.
As you can see in the below video, this movement resulted in some very shaky timelapse footage. However, it was easily saved by stabilizing the timelapse in Adobe After Effects for some stunning results. The large files from the 5D Mark II make it easy to apply stabilizing filters like Adobe’s warp stabilizer thanks to plenty of look-around space provided by the 5K+ resolution.
Thanks for sending this in Mayeul. You can check out more of Mayeul’s work here on Vimeo.
