Thoughts about Raw video on the 6D
« on: July 17, 2014, 05:02:35 AM »
Ok so Ive been thinking about getting rid of my 60d and buying a 6d....

Raw video on the 60d is pretty awesome except that it can only shoot about 8 seconds and it has super bad aliasing and moire....Is the 6d any better? I'm sure you can record longer that 8 seconds right?

Ive tried searching but I cant find much.

Ive also been thinking about getting a 5d mark 2 but the 6d kills it on the photo side...

I don't think SD card cameras are your best choice for raw video shooting. You need to decide what's more important for you, raw video or still photography and then purchase the camera that fulfills that need understanding that the other function will have to suffer.

6D can record about 13 seconds of RAW in default settings. You have to lower the resolution significantly for contunuous raw recording. Hopes were high for the new implemented SRM memory but 6D unfortuantely didn't see any improvement regarding recording times here. Yuu will have to keep your eyes open for a cam like 5d mkII / III or 7D owning cf card and having more write speed or something like a 60d with high amount of srm memory....
