This image will be the final of the specific 6D. As it turns out, the improper modding of it, caused these huge halos and flairs, which until now I thought were due to optics.

Super nice! The old 6D is still a very good camera, I still use it. I also have halo's, but mainly in my OIII filters from Baader, so I'm still suspecting those.

Hi, Vincent, thank you!

 

I went back and checked photos with the same lenses used with my stock 6D, also a modified 60D which was sent to Lifepixel, none exhibited these flairs and halos. All of them were shot with no filters (just plain full spectrum images). I used this faulty 6D with 3 different optics (100 Macro 2.8 L / 70-200 2.8 II L / Redcat 51) and all showed the same problems.

This specific modded Canon 6D is a loaner, belongs to a friend, he had someone do the mod, but apparently there's some issue there. I won't be using it again, though the 6D sensor overall is a great one.

Ah, no filters even, well that makes the mod an immediate suspect indeed. Thanks for sharing the results nonetheless, love them!
