    • Haven’t tried DPP. For this shoot the 5D II was the primary camera for stills, and the 60D was the backup camera for panos. I may replace the 60D with a 6D next year.

  1. Apparently 5DmIII is a killer for the night work one pro photographers said that shooting at ISO 6400 on mIII compares to what was an ISO 1600 on mII.

  2. I’ve played with a 5D III and it’s 1-2 stops better in high ISO performance. The big difference is the AF. Neither of these matter much for long exposures with manual focus at low ISO. I’m interested in the 6D because it will autofocus to -3 EV — which is the best low light AF performance of any Canon dSLR ever made. We’ll see if it can AF under full moon conditions!
