Canon EOS 6D

 

Less than a week after arch-rival Nikon grabbed headlines with the D600, Canon responded with an announcement of its own price-conscious full frame DSLR, the EOS 6D. And just like that, a new market segment was born: the mid-range full frame DSLR. It...

Excellent detail in raw file output across ISO range ; Class-leading low light focus sensitivity (from central AF point) ; Very effective JPEG noise reduction at highest ISO sensitivities ; Impressively quiet 'silent' shutter drive mode ; Quick Control...

JPEG engine struggles with low-contrast fine detail at low ISO sensitivities ; Low density 11 point autofocus array with only one cross-type AF point ; Single card slot (SD) ; Slow burst rate compared to its full frame peers ; Cannot configure common...

The EOS 6D doesn't offer the depth of features that its best competitors can, but it combines very good image quality, impressive high ISO performance and class-leading low light autofocus ability (with the central AF point) as well as impressive...

Canon EOS 6D ( Body Only)

 

It's not that the 6D isn't a really nice camera -- I happen to like it a lot. It's got great photo and good video quality, relatively fluid operational design with a soft shutter action, and a solid (but not weatherproof) build. But ultimately I find...

The Canon EOS 6D delivers the photo and video quality you expect from a full-frame sensor, in a well-designed and relatively lightweight body.

While the camera has nice extra features, like Wi-Fi and GPS support, it's missing some basics for the price like on-camera flash, multiple card slots, and a 100 percent-coverage viewfinder.

The photo quality you get from the EOS 6D makes it well worth the upgrade over a consumer APS-C model, but between this and comparable or higher-end models it's a less obvious choice.

Canon EOS 6D review

 

In some respects, it's hard to tell who Canon's targeting with the EOS 6D, its "budget" full-frame camera. It's got some fairly consumer-y features and specifications. GPS? Check. Built-in Wi-Fi? Check. Single SD card slot? Check. Viewfinder with less...

Canon EOS 6D

 

Prior to the announcement of the Canon EOS 6D ($2,099 direct, body only) and the Nikon D600, shooters who wanted a full-frame camera—one with an image sensor the same size as a 35mm film frame—were faced with a small number of choices at $3,000 and up....

Compact. Inexpensive for its class. Full-frame sensor. 4.5fps shooting. Superb image quality at high ISOs. Interchangeable focus screens. Integrated GPS and Wi-Fi. 1080p30 video capture. Battery grip available. Supported USB tethered and Wi-Fi remote...

Not the fastest camera on the block. Viewfinder only offers 97 percent coverage. Not compatible with EF-S lenses. GPS saps battery life. No flash. Slow focus during video recording. No PC Sync socket

The Canon EOS 6D is a top-notch full-frame camera in a relatively compact body. With a relatively affordable price, enthusiast-friendly features, and spectacular image quality, it's an easy Editors' Choice.

Canon EOS 6D Preview

 

Potentially the smallest full-frame dSLR on the camera market, Canon's EOS 6D is a step up from the Canon 5D Mark II, but not quite at the level of the Canon 5D Mark III. The 6D dSLR utilizes Canon's DIGIC 5+ Image Processor and offers a 20.2-megapixel...

Canon EOS 6D Review

 

The Canon EOS 6D is the smallest and lightest full frame sensor format Canon DSLR camera ever (as of review time). The image quality benefits of Canon's full frame CMOS sensors are big, while the footprint of the 6D remains small - as does the relative...

Canon EOS 6D Review

 

The new EOS 6D is the smallest and lightest full-frame Canon DSLR. The 6D features a 20.2 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, built-in wireless transmitter, integrated GPS module, DIGIC 5+ image processor, an 11-point autofocus array, 63-zone dual-layer...

On paper the new Canon EOS 6D seems rather poorly specified compared to its main rival, the Nikon D600, and its big brother, the 5D Mark III, but in reality it proves to be a very capable DSLR that delivers outstanding pictures in both good and bad...

Canon 6D Review

 

With the 20.2-megapixel EOS 6D, Canon has created a smaller, lighter and less expensive full-frame digital SLR for prosumer photographers. In many ways, the well-designed 6D is a mini 5D Mark III for the rest of us. While it doesn't feature as robust a...

Excellent image quality on par to more expensive full-frame DSLRs (including the 5D Mark III); Responsive all-around performer; Superior HD video-shooting chops; Built-in Wi-Fi with remote control and sharing features, Built-in GPS and geotagging

Lacks a built-in, pop-up flash; No external headphone jack; Rather basic 11-point autofocus system; Mediocre burst speed

Canon EOS 6D: A “Full-Framer” With Broad Appeal

 

I don't think there's much doubt that, all things being equal, larger sensors are capable of delivering superior image quality. The very fact that more sensor sites are available means that there's better performance in low light, less noise in shadow...

Entry-level camera with a full-frame sensor ; High-resolution images with very good color ; GPS system ; Wi-Fi system ; Full HD video recording; additional microphone jack for better sound recording

Missing swivel monitor ; No internal flash system (additional flash system is necessary)

Canon EOS 6D Review

 

After Nikon introduced their "budget full frame DSLR", the Nikon D600, Canon promptly followed suite by announcing the Canon 6D, their much cheaper full frame alternative. The camera, however, received some underwhelming response as it looked inferior...

Solid build, Built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, Extremely light

Using the jog dial is uncomfortable for moving the focus points, 11-point AF system feels archaic with only one cross type point and relatively small frame coverage, Single SD card slot
