The 6D is perfect for someone who wants a Full Frame body, while spending half as much as the 5D Mark III. The 6D obviously has less features, and isn't as good as the MkIII, but for the price, the 6D is a great camera for pretty much anything. I've used the 6D since September of 2013 and I haven't had any problems with it, the video it takes is very good, & the photos it takes are also fantastic. The only problem the 6D has is Action photography (Sports, Wildlife, etc.), it has a hard time ...

Owned the 6D for a year and loved the wi-fi and fit of the camera.  Easy to use and function and takes tremendous photos.  Well worth looking to buying one new or refurbished.

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 ...

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.
