Canon 6D(N) and Canon 6D(WG)... optional Wifi and GPS
Nov 28, 2012

From the Canon site UK (just updated) and the online manuals (thanks to Nigel Wilkins for the info)
it seems that there will be a (N - naked?) version of the 6D without the Wifi and GPS functions.

  • **Wi-Fi support varies by device and region

Local regulations?

I presume this is to respect local wireless regulations, and the modules may still be in the cameras.  Will a firmware switch from the N version to the WG version activate them?  Will there be a different price on them?  Will there be a different label on the camera or just on the box?

Watch this space as the 6D becomes available and answers are found...!  

  • * GPS use may be restricted in certain countries or regions. Use of GPS should comply with the laws and regulations of the country and area in which it is being operated including any restriction on the use of electronics.
