Summary: In our opinion, Canon has hit the target he set for himself: to create a professional SLR accessible for cost and method of use to user’s enthusiasts. Of course, we are not at the levels of a Mark III and even a Mark II.
Pros: Contrast, Sharpness, Detail and excellent color, Focus on fast-3EV point center cross, DIGIC 5 processor, Wi-Fi and GPS, 1080p video at 30fps good quality.
Cons: Only 11 points of focus therefore not very suitable for sports photography, a single slot for memory cards.
Summary: Currently available for £1695, it’s great to finally see a new full frame body in Canon’s lineup that costs under £2000. For APS-C DSLR users considering the jump up to full frame, it still represents a serious outlay when you consider EF-S lenses can’t be used with the 6D.
Pros: Image quality, ISO performance, Wi-Fi & GPS, AF performance in low-light
Cons: One cross-type AF point, JPEG sharpness, playback zoom control
Summary: Right after Nikon launched the D600, Canon countered with the 20MP 6D. Is the EOS 6D the full-frame alternative we hoped it would be?
Pros: Excellent image quality, Great low light/high ISO capabilities, Full-frame shooting at an "affordable" price, Built-in WiFi and GPS, Good performance overall, Sophisticated feature set for the price
Cons: No built-in flash, Single SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot (vs. Nikon D600's dual card slot), Slightly soft images on default settings (depending on lens used)
Conclusion: Despite a few quibbles, the 20.2-megapixel Canon EOS 6D lives up to its promise of housing a glorious, full-frame CMOS sensor inside a smaller, lighter, and more affordable digital SLR camera body designed for prosumers, enthusiasts, and even novice photographers.
Pros: Offers the glories of a full-frame sensor in a more affordable, smaller and lighter digital SLR body, Excellent image quality (similar to 5D Mark III) and resolution from 20.2-megapixel, 35.8 x 23.9mm CMOS image sensor, Portable but fairly robust camera build with a comfy handgrip and responsive ...
Cons: While it's more affordable than previous Canon full-frame cameras, some users might find the $2,000 price tag still to be too high, No pop-up flash, No built-in AF illuminator (though AF system is more sensitive than most), Not as rugged or weatherized as Canon 5D Mark III, No easy-to-use, multi-...
Summary: It isn't pocket money, but the EOS 6D nonetheless puts full-frame features within reach of the more ambitious enthusiast photographer. I'd have happily swapped the GPS and Wifi for more autofocus points, but it's nonetheless a great body that captures great colours and very detailed shots.
Pros: Image quality; Full frame sensor; Built in wifi; Built in GPS.
Cons: Limited autofocus points; No built-in flash.
Summary: The Canon EOS 6D is a beautiful full-frame SLR camera last generation which officially opens the world of full-frame Canon (almost) all budgets. The performance and features of this SLR are of high standard as is high-level build quality and materials used for durable, lightweight construction of...
Pros: Built-in GPS, 20.3 MP CMOS sensor, DIGIC 5, Full HD (1080p), ISO 100-25600 (expandable to ISO 102, 400); HDR Mode, Camera body in magnesium alloy; Robustness and ergonomics; WiFi integrated; Display Clear View high-resolution continuous shooting (4.5 fps), sensitivity 11-point AF up to -3 EV.
Conclusion: The Canon EOS 6D is a top-notch full-frame camera in a compact body. With a relatively affordable price, enthusiast-friendly features, and spectacular image quality, it's an easy Editors' Choice.
Pros: Compact. Inexpensive for its class. Full-frame sensor. 4.5fps shooting. Superb image quality at high ISOs. Interchangeable focus screens. Integrated GPS and Wi-Fi. 1080p30 video capture. Battery grip available. Supported USB tethered and Wi-Fi remote control.
Cons: Not the fastest camera on the block. Viewfinder only offers 97 percent coverage. Not compatible with EF-S lenses. GPS saps battery life. No flash. Slow focus during video recording. No PC Sync socket.
Summary: Like the EOS 650D, which has a touchscreen and hybrid AF system, Canon has been bold again in introducing new technology into one of its DSLRs, in this case GPS and Wi-Fi to the EOS 6D. Thankfully, both features work very well and enhance the day-to-day use of the camera.
