Turn the cam off
remove the lens
turn the cam back on
press LV button (mirror goes up)
slide VAF filter in
turn cam off
put the lens back on

that's it.

Awesome! Definitely buying that.

Yeah, It's definetely worth it.
I know, that the price makes the price difference between 6D and 5D3 much smaller but right now I cannot change, I have my 6D couple of months now, I was buying it before all the raw stuff appeared so it was very good decision then and selling it now doesn't make sense.
With this filter you can sharpen the picture much more without any color artifacts. I have it couple of days, still lack of time to make a proper comparison but I think it's brilliant.
If you have any request regarding some short test footage (something vs something) just tell and I will make it next week. I can than upload it via dropbox or something because YT compression kills a difference mostly in things we are interested in.

What is the install like on that filter? That was one of my reservations about getting one. I don't want to open up my camera.

Lol - was just staring at a shot I did with my 6D and weeping at the moire. I do wonder how much of what we are seeing is subject to crazy debayering though. Thanks for the quote though. Where is this from by the way?

I got the quote from the Canon Rumors forum. I know Mosaic makes an AA filter for it, but it's like $370. Which would be worth it, but if there is a better way to fix it then I would much rather save my money.

I'm not sure how in depth this stuff is. But I was looking into Moire on the 6D and I saw this post on the downsampling algorithm that the 6d uses as opposed to the 5d3 and I was wondering if this was something that could be addressed in  a magic lantern build or not. Here is the quote I found on it.

"The 5D3 is, when cropped from 3:2 to 16:9, is essentially a QFHD sensor -- exactly 4 times the size of standard 1080p HD. The reason it looks good in 1080p mode is because the camera only has to combine 4 pixels into a single pixel (pixel binning). This is the exact same thing the C300 does to look so good. The 1DX has a smaller sensor that isn't a simple multiple, but it has very powerful processors to downsample in a high quality way. The 6D has a smaller sensor but doesn't have the processing power to downsample correctly (presumably) so Canon just throws out various lines to create the smaller image. It's less processor intensive but results in interference patterns. That's why the 5D3 looks great with moire, the 1DX looks almost as good, and the 6D still has the same problems that the 5D2 had.If it turns out that the processor is strong enough to downsample properly, it could possibly be adjusted in a firmware update that rewrites the downsampling algorithm. Is it likely that Canon will do that? I'm not counting on it."

Just a thought. Thanks for all you guys do.

I won't even begin to act like I understand what you guys are doing, but I've been watching the forum and I have a question.

From what you guys know so far, is 1920x1080 RAW theoretically possible on the 6d? I know the processor is the same as the Mk III, but I know there are a ton of other factors there too.

Also, is the highspeed SD card from sandisk (95mb/s I believe) not really writing at 95mb/s?

Thanks for what you guys do. Looking forward to a ML build for my 6D!
