Clarkvision evaluates the 6D sensor
Aug 23, 2014


But even more impressive than the high signal and low read noise, is the far better control of pattern noise. The 6D sensor performs well ahead of the 1DX at low ISO, similar to that for the 1DX at moderate to high ISOs, but the 1DX pulls slightly ahead at very high ISOs. The pattern noise of the 6D is overall the lowest I have measured for any Canon camera. pattern noise limits the detail visible in shadows, and the ability to pull out low level detail or faint signal. Pattern noise is particularly visible to the human eye+brain system.


The 6D, having some 4 times lower dark current than the 1DX, combined with significantly lower banding noise, pushes this camera well ahead of the 1DX and other cameras for long exposure low light photography, including astrophotography, nightscapes, and night cityscapes.
