EOS 6D: WiFi and image size

Sending images over WiFi is not usually that quick. As such, even though the files are only JPEGs, it is best to keep them to a small file size to make transfer as efficient as possible. Previously, the advice for sending images over WiFi was to select a small JEPG file in the file size options. However, with the EOS 6D, it is possible to resize images in the WiFi transfer settings menu. This way you can shoot in RAW and Large JPEG if you need to, but then resize the images you wish to send, in-camera, so they transfer faster.

Make Your Outdoor Photos Pop

If you are serious about photography and want to shoot like a pro, you should invest in a  DSLR camera and a couple of decent detachable lenses with filters. A cell phone photo may work for the internet at times, however, if you want to start publishing or selling your photos you will need the right equipment.

Two must have filters for shooting outdoors are the UV and polarizer. You should keep a UV filter on the lens to protect it from being damaged or scratched at all times. The UV filter does little to affect the quality of the images, but it will slightly improve your color tones by helping block some of the UV light rays outdoors. It’s mainly used for protecting the glass on the lens. When shooting in bright sunlight outdoors, I  prefer to use a polarizing filter.

Both filters screw  on the end of a lens easily.  A polarizing filter will make your outside photos pop. It helps eliminate haze, reflections on glass, water, and makes the sky appear a rich darker blue. You will get the best results when you are approximately 90 degrees to the sun. You turn the lens filter as you look through the viewfinder until you achieve the desired position. Compare the images below with and without a polarizing filter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Above: See how the bottom photo has more detail, especially in the clouds using the polarizer.

Below: The image below shot using a polarizer changed the outcome of the photo dramatically. It changed the color and appearance of the water, made the trees pop in a brighter green, and turned the sky into a much ricer blue.

Finally, look at the picture on the right. The glare on the water is minimized, the sky is a darker blue, and the foilage is slightly greener. The polarizer filter will not help much with the detail in the shadow areas, but it pays dividends in other areas when shooting on bright sunny days.
