Pulp Fiction (1994)
The profanity-laced quote from Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction may sound rude but that was the first thing that came to my mind when I read about Canon 6D Mark II dynamic range tests:
- Canon 6D Mark II dynamic range falls behind modern APS-C cameras
- Canon 6D Mark II Dynamic Range is a Big Disappointment
- Photons to photos
I really wanted to upgrade my good old 6D to 6D Mark II but that was the last straw. Whenever I read another story of the day “why I switched from Canon to Fujifilm” I ask myself why do I still stick to Canon. I own both full frame and APS-C body and about two dozens of Canon lenses. The answer is lenses, no other system matches Canon’s lens versatility at affordable prices.
Why do I owe full frame 6d? Just three reasons:
- wide angle unachievable in the crop body;
- dynamic range
- moderate size and weight without the bulk of 5D professional models.
Lack of 4k in Canon 6D Mark II has baffled me on some emotional level – why Cannon can’t figure this out when competitors do it long ago in smaller and less advanced bodies but personally I don’t give a shit about video capabilities. Inferior dynamic range is a game changer, in $2,000 semi-professional camera it’s not anymore a technical compromise but rather an attempt to scam loyal base of customers. Why Canon, why? DO I… LOOK… LIKE A BITCH?
