Canon EOS 6D impresses, to a point

CNET
27 April 2013
  • Summary: The photo quality you get from the EOS 6D makes it well worth the upgrade over a consumer APS-C model, but between this and comparable or higher-end models it's a less obvious choice.
  • Pros: The Canon EOS 6D delivers the photo and video quality you expect from a full-frame sensor, in a well-designed and relatively lightweight body.
  • Cons: While the camera has nice extra features, like Wi-Fi and GPS support, it's missing some basics for the price like on-camera flash, multiple card slots, and a 100 percent-coverage viewfinder.

  • Summary: The EOS 6D doesn't offer the depth of features that its best competitors can, but it combines very good image quality, impressive high-ISO performance and class-leading low-light autofocus ability (with the central AF point) as well as impressive built-in Wi-Fi and GPS features.
  • Pros: Excellent detail in raw file output across ISO range, Class-leading low light focus sensitivity (from central AF point), Very effective JPEG noise reduction at highest ISO sensitivities, Impressively quiet 'silent' shutter drive mode, Quick Control menu provides easy access to shooting settings, Wi-Fi-enabled remote camera control via smartphone or tablet, Effective and easy to use multi-exposure HDR mode, Built-in GPS with text log capability, Exposure simulation in ...
  • Cons: JPEG engine struggles with low-contrast fine detail at low ISO sensitivities, Low density 11 point autofocus array with only one cross-type AF point, Single card slot (SD), Slow burst rate compared to its full frame peers, Cannot configure common live view and movie mode options independently, Video output prone to moiré artifacts, Slightly lower resolution than all of its full frame peers, HDR mode is JPEG-only (unlike the 5D Mark III), Awkward placement of DOF previ...

Canon EOS 6D

Camera Labs
1 September 2012
  • Summary: There was a time, not so long ago, when the cost of a full-frame DSLR was well beyond the reach of most people who didn't earn their living from photography. Then, within the space of a couple of weeks, Nikon announced the D600, Canon followed close on its heels with the 6D, and the affordable full-frame DSLR became a reality that many could aspire to.
  • Pros: Tough, moisture and dust resistant body., Built-in Wi-Fi and GPS., Great image quality with low noise levels., AF effective in very low light., 4.5fps continuous shooting limited by memory for JPEGs.
  • Cons: Single SD card slot., Lacks built-in flash., 97 percent viewfinder coverage., Relatively few AF points and only one cross-type., Lacks on-demand viewfnder overlays.

18 March 2013
  • Summary: The Canon EOS 6D is the brand's lightest, most affordable and accessible semi-pro DSLR. But even so, is it worth just under £2,000?
  • Pros: Full-frame chip, Proper photographic control, Wi-Fi picture transfer
  • Cons: Pricey if you're not a pro

  • Conclusion: Released at the same time as Nikon's D600, the 6D is extremely similar in price, features and handling. The 20.2MP sensor produces stunning image quality, and the high-res 3in screen and better ISO response both outperform its Nikon counterpart. The incredible battery life of 1090 shots from a single charge and the Wi-Fi function are features not found on any other full-frame camera. On the downside, the 6D only has 11 focus points and one memory card slot.

Canon EOS 6D review

expertreviews.co.uk
29 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Full-frame photography has got a lot more interesting in the last 12 months, especially for people whose next camera isn't a business expense. The Canon EOS 5D Mark III , Nikon D800 and Sony Alpha A99 all helped to redefine what an entry-level full-frame SLR was capable of. Hot on their heels came the Nikon D600 and now the Canon EOS 6D, which both redefine what an entry-level full-frame SLR should cost.
