    I know this is a pie in the sky kind of question as the 6D isnt in the wild yet..

    but next month I am going to get a new camera.. I was thinking the 6D.. but then at the same time I am thinking maybe i just bite the bullet and throw down on the 5D..

    I know the specs blah blah blah.. i guess i am just getting peoples thoughts one you would do..

    If it is for video I would seriously look at the panasonic gh2 (gh3 is about to be released). The 'unoffical' upgrade makes it an amazing video camera which is a lot more of a power horse than the canons.

    Its good at still but I still prefer shooting with my old film hasselblad.

    • not moving system.. have too canon glass that i like..autoflavour1/2
      It is shutterless system so you pretty much can get any lens adapter you need.mugwart2/2

    To me, the 6D seems good on paper for video and has 2 serious limitations for pro photography: slow flash sync (1/180) and slow shutter (1/4000).

    other factor i am keeping in mind is the resale value of the 6d vs 5dm3..

    i was an early adopter of the 7d thru necessity not choice, and for an further $600 i could have got the 5dmk2..

    i didnt.. and in the first 6 months the 7d had pretty much halved in price where as the 5d pretty much held solid..

    not that i am thinking about selling it.. its just when you buy something, you dont expect it to drop so dramatically in value so quick..

    • you still have the 7d? not massive diff with the mk3 video wisewhereRI1/2
      7D is a basically a larger 600D (T3i)shaft2/2

    What about the blackmagic camera (if it is ever released?)

    It is about 2.5/3K footage so you could probably pull stills from the video - I have heard photographers moving into this method. Personally I'm too old school for that! Photoshop is for grading and dust busting only!

    • Comes wit resolve too - so you have a DI suite as well. If I had the dosh I might get this one.mugwart
