Canon EOS 6D

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

. 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 ...

Have had the 6D for a few months now. Mainly switched from 5DMII for 60fps video without losing full frame sensor. Glad I made the switch. Didnt think I would use wifi but has actually come in handy. Was able to send some good photos of my nephew's first bike race last weekend to my phone and then text to family. Menus have more options and camera feels just as durable. My only complaint about the 6D is that I get the "recording has stopped" while videoing and depending on what you're ...

A full frame body was always my dream, but price tags of over $2500 body only withheld me from buying one. Two years ago when the 5d3 was released I considered upgrading, but the price tag of the 5d3 body was (and still is) too steep for me. In summer 2012 finally both Nikon and Canon released an 'affordable' full frame for about $2000. And prices of both cams dropped to $1600 which triggered me to buy one and sell the 7d. Fortunately only 2 of my 5 lenses were APS-C so I could keep the ...

I took a Canon 6D + EF 50mm f1.4 USM to Colombia and  took about 700 fotos - focus was fine for my type of photography,mostly landscape, informal portraits, nice colors. Positives: reasonably fast  focus, very good performance in low light, very lightweight, nice viewfinder. Only drawbacks are the slower flash sync shutter speed, some controls I use are only accessible in menu and IQ, a bit less latitude in shadows than my D800 but for the money the 6D is a bargain.

I bought the 6D about a month after being released. Because my background and education, my photography work has two distant and different branches. L andscapes and photographs that look like XVII Century Dutch Golden Age paintings (yes, yes, Vermeer, Kalf, Claesz, Heda and the like you can check them out in the link above) The Canon 6D had some features that were relevant to me : Full Frame, High ISO with Low Noise, WiFi and GPS. I previously owned a Canon 20D before and I was upgrading to ...

I've had the 6D for several weeks now, potentially an upgrade from a 7D. Now I'm not so sure. I can relate to most of the good review comments. But I have some gripes too. Reviews never mentioned that the 6D doesn't have built in flash.That flash is great for quick fill light when your traveling light. I got an EX 270 mini flash thta will at least slide into my pocket. The GPS sensor apparently takes its place. Fair enough, but I wish it had been mentioned. The GPS isn't a bad idea for those ...

Let me preface this review by noting that I am pretty new to photography. I bought a Sony NEX 5N in Sept. of 2011 and knew nothing about photography. Slowly over the next year I read books on exposure, composition, and light. I was determined to figure out the technical aspects of photography so the equipment wouldn't limit me trying to achieve what my eyes wanted to capture. I find photography so much easier when I don't have to think about how to get the exposure I want and can do it ...
