Canon EOS 6D

Announced Sep 17, 2012 •
20 megapixels | 3 screen | Full frame sensor

A full review is forthcoming on my blog, but for DPR: Canon's best DSLR for the money to date. A solid sensor that has the best low light hi/iso performance, solid low iso performance, and no banding in raw files for once (malleable files). A simpler, well designed, well handling and balanced, well featured, easy to use DSLR with just enough of the good stuff to give you what most need, without pricing most out. Reliable, well built, weather resistant, and humble in appearance. Not too big, ...

I have probably taken 45k pictures in 21 months, at events, portraits, dance, landscapes and astrophotography with some very nice results.  However, while the AF system can lock focus in low light, the general AF system isn't very good, with 11 points, only 1 cross type.   I wish Canon had put more thought into offering a better system, maybe with more cross type sensors. Overall, it is a very nice body with an excellent low light sensor.   The first night I had the camera, I used the Wifi to ...

. I purchased a Canon EOS 6D a couple of weeks ago. I'd wanted to use a Full Frame camera sensor for leisure and personal shots - pets, family events, portraits, astro-photography and macro photography... that sort of thing. I'm not specifically interested in doing professional work with this camera but it's easy to see why so many people do use it professionally. . For a FF sensor, I think it's better value than the EOS 5D III although I would have liked to have seen a 1/8000 second shutter ...

My review is a little different than what a camera expert would say. I am reviewing it from the point of view of a professional photographer with the following categories what I love and what I disappointed . I LOVE; Ability to shoot in low light ( High ISO ) please see my sample taking during an event, overall working of the camera, price in comparison to competitors, abilities and diversity, long life of batteries, diversity, enjoy saving money on smart cards rather than more expensive cf ...

I wanted to go FF and hesitated a long time between this camera and Nikon D600. In the end I got swayed by the better lens portfolio on Canon side, more specifically by the peerless 70-200 f2.8L USM IS II and to some extent also by the fear of having to deal with the oil spots issue. I do not regret my decision, although the camera is not perfect. There are a couple of shortcomings with respect to both comparably priced competition and 5dmk3, but I'll leave that to spec homework. There are ...

I've been shooting with the 5DM3 for quite sometime now, and when i get to test the 6D, after an hour with it, I bought one without any hesitation and maxed out my credit card. It's the SIMPLER version of 5D mark lll and a lot fun to use. Yes, we're back with the standard 11 point autofocus, mediocre video mode, and some downgraded parts like posh plastic on top and front and they say plastic on the LCD cover, but it's decent and somewhat feels like a fiber glass instead of plastic to me. ...

Feels great in my hand. Control layout is uncluttered and very easy to use. Menu is advanced but simple to understand. Viewfinder is clean and bright (not too many AF points to interfere with my view). Live view is excellent and the magnification allows you to check your focusing accuracy. The battery seems to last forever. Image quality is stellar. Colours are spot on and the metering works perfectly. I'm very pleased, and, really, image quality is all that counts when you use a camera. High ...
