Some one has to say it, Cold not a Nikon




Voted hot of course, nearly £100 cheaper than everywhere else and includes accessories.
cameraprocebuster.co.uk is great for checking.

Hot because it's not a Nikon.

Such a great camera, I've had mine since release as an upgrade over the 50D, the quality is fantastic and probably the best low light DSLR you can buy... maybe

What jobs do you guys do when a £1000 camera is a good deal, or even a consideration?

What a stupid comment. Don't you have any hobbies?

Thanks bought two

The 6d is without doubt the best camera body I have ever owned (and I've had a few). What this camera can do, hand held, indoors in poor light, without flash, is pretty much miraculous. Shots at ISO 25600 are completely usable. Mount the cheap ef40 f/2.8 pancake lens and you have got a small, lightweight, fullframe camera which has stunning image quality even in low light. Photo below is with ef40mm lens @ ISO25600 handheld. https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5797/20810360688_0aa0297494_b.jpgIMG_0292sm

how does this compare to 5d mk3? I have an option to buy a 5d mk3 or £800

I know you get a few bits with, however if you just want the camera its £889.99 here.

It may be eBay, however the seller is Argos.

The 5D3 has a better autofocus system (more focusing points) which is better suited for stuff like motorsports, aircraft in flight etc. 6D is marginally better for focusing in poor light. Overall image quality is the same. 6D is slightly smaller and lighter.

Not everybody in here likes queuing in job centre ;-) sorry dude

Great price, but I've had a few issues with 64GB cards; corrupting files after 60 or so shots. I've tried different manufacturers' cards just to rule out the SanDisk cards I usually use.

I'd take a couple of hundred shots with the supplied card just to make sure you don't get caught out.

Try different levels of SLR camera and find out.

Photography is a hobby. you just have to work out how much you love photography to throw this kind of money. I have a 600d but having used a 5d mk3 last month I'm thinking now if I should buy or not as it is alot of money. And I only occasionally use my SLR cameras (once every 3 months for birthdays, weddings and other partys). But one can turn their hobby into a job

Try just using 32GB cards. I've noticed some camera's dont like ultra fast cards. so maybe try class 6 cards. trial and error

great deal!

Not sure if you are being serious or daft.
The vast majority of people buying this camera will either already have lenses or will be spending a lot more than £100 on a lens.
The only exception to that would be the well regarded 1.8 50mm.

I don't know what you problem is mate. Yes it's an expensive camera and yes you need to buy a lens for it. It's not for everyone, but it's still a deal!

Not at all. Cheapest 'Kit' is £1399.
So for body only it's a £100 saving.

Looks a cracking camera for astrophotography too, although the thought of dismantling a £1000 camera puts me off.

That's what I do. I only ever use 16 or 32GB c6 or c10 cards now.

A nice deal, voted hot.

I got this camera when it came out from HDEW Cameras and you can save a fair bit from them. There prices are cheap due to buying stock from Europe, so they are non-uk stock. I personally don't have an issue with this (they give you a 3 year warranty.. no idea if it's actually any good as never needed to use it) the camera and lens are identical in ever way except the serial number is from EU (mine happened to be form Germany). The stock is also already in the UK so you get it next day/two... If it was only a small saving then i'd always go with a UK stock but this is a fair bit! Might be helpful for some

6D body only £795 or with 24-105 lens it's £1195

I think you've misunderstood this deal. Cameras of this level will normally be available to buy as body only. Often people just want to upgrade their camera and already have all the lenses they need. The price of the body only will be less than the kit lens version, so the saving is still valid. Most lens cost much more than £100 btw.

What is your point? Firstly, the numerical value of the price, isn't what makes something a deal. £10 is a lot less than £1000, but if a can of coke cost £10 it wouldn't make it a good deal would it? Secondly, for many, photography is a hobby and a passion. I know someone who some years back, on very humble salary, bought themselves a full frame canon, they loved photography and have saved for years. So what job you're in might make this camera easy to access, but doesn't mean you don't consider it because its £1000.

Your comment is an ignorant one.

Good deal for the camera if that's what your ant but many better cameras available around this price depending on what you want it for (wouldn't touch it for video for eg)

Weddings...

6d is good for a professional, or anyone who is serious about photography and quality pictures - but not as serious to spend few grand (!!!) on the body itself. I have a 6d with 24-105 + 16-35/f4 + number of other cheaper lenses and this has been my passion/part time job over the years. It has a great value on the market, however the single cross AF point is a bit weak for any action type shots.

I have been researching DSLR's for a little while now and for a full frame camera it's a good price, however it has limitations when it comes to focus capability compared to the 7d mk ii and Sony a77 mk ii, Dpreview is IMO the place to look when choosing a camera, also make sure you actually hold one. The 7d also has dual memory slots, a requirement for any photography involving charging clients, again IMO.

I have a 60D at the moment and seriously considering upgrading to fullframe at some point in the future. The low light photography of this camera is impressive and probably the selling point for me. Do Calumet often have deals or is this really just a rare opportunity to grab a real bargain?

The 7d2 is a crop sensor camera. Any clients you are charging are more likely to want the best image quality and that means a full frame sensor. Also, what you may not appreciate is that the dual slots on the 7D2 are CompactFlash and SD. Professional photographers tend to use one or the other....rarely both. SD cards are more fragile and slower than most CF cards.

Depends what you want it for but resolution and picture quality, a7r, video, a6000 at a third of this price beats it easily or a gh4/gh3 will be miles better. Low light - a7s. All superior cameras

Image quality can also mean in focus images. If your a sports photographer I would imagine you would go with a faster af camera (and prob crop because of that)
I know loads of press photographers who use crop sensors. 7d 2 is a horrible rip off anyway, but then I don't know who would buy a canon now a days anyway.
