Full frame vs APS-C
In reply to Duskbat, Feb 22, 2013

Both the D7000/D7100 and Canon 6D have Pentaprism viewfinders. The difference you are seeing is because the Canon 6D is a full frame sensor camera and the Nikon D7000/D7100 are APS-c size sensor cameras just as your older Canon, I think. To compare you need to look though the Canon 7D. Full frame viewfinders will always have bigger and brighter viewfinders than their smaller APS-C cousins.  As noted below, if the battery was not in and charged in the display model, the view will be very dim compared to an operational camera.  Good Luck
