Canon-EOS-6D-reviewCanon’s EOS 6D is a mid-range digital SLR that couples a 20.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and fast Digic 5+ processor with a built-in wireless transmitter and GPS features.


Designed to bridge the gap for budget-minded advanced amateur photographers and videographers looking to step up to 35mm full-frame imaging, the 6D includes 1080p Full HD video capabilities and a 3.0-inch LCD monitor with high resolution, a 170º viewing angle and live-view shooting with 100% coverage.


“The introduction of this camera completes a well-rounded ecosystem from input through output for Canon, allowing us to provide the right combination of features for every level of photographer. We believe the EOS 6D digital SLR camera along with our new Pixma Pro printers will help unlock the creative vision of so many who aspire to capture and display their artistic abilities,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon USA.


The ideal tool for unlocking your creative vision, the 6D offers full manual options for creative control as well as intuitive automatic settings to help novice photographers. Its construction is pro aimed with a 100,000-cycle shutter and integrated cleaning system. Advancements include the new Digic 5+ image processor that powers the camera’s 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion and continuous shooting at 4.5 frames per second.


Thanks to the combination of its sensor and processor, the 6D has an ISO range from 100–25,600 with a low setting, L: 50, and two high settings, H1: 51,200 and H2: 102,400, for awesome image quality even in low light.


While recording video, the camera gives you full manual control over exposure and audio levels. It offers NTSC and PAL video modes at multiple frame rates, recording 1080p at 30, 24 and 25 fps, 720p at 60 and 50 fps, and standard video at 30 and 25 fps.


To transfer images no matter where you are, a built-in wireless transmitter lets you share images and video with a choice of wireless devices, such as select PowerShot cameras, smartphones, tablets and cloud-based destinations, including social networking sites through the Canon iMage Gateway. When you download the free Canon EOS Remote app, available for iOS and Android, you can use your smartphone or tablet for remote camera control and operation, or even print your images to a Wi-Fi compatible printer.


Perfect for travel and nature photography, the camera’s built-in GPS allows location data to be recorded while shooting. Other features include: HDR (high dynamic range) mode that captures three exposures and combines them in-camera for an image with shadow detail and bright highlights; multiple exposure mode that lets you combine up to nine images into a single composite image; scene intelligent auto and special scene modes; and compatibility with SDHC and SDXC cards, including Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) cards.


The Canon EOS 6D DSLR will be sold in a body-only configuration for $2,099 and in a kit with Canon’s EF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM zoom lens for $2,899.
