Summary: I have no idea what the deal is but when I opened the box the camera was shipped in the Canon camera box was smashed and it was obviously shipped that way. The camera was apparently part of a kit so the box was half empty...they threw in a bunch of cheap junk that nobody ever uses to hide the fact this camera is either refurbished or used. All the paper work has been opened and the seal was broken. I was not trying to buy a used or refurbished camera.
Excerpt: I just got a 6D. What a mistake. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT unless you intend on using mirror lockup on all you photos. I have never had a mirror make as much noise and vibration then with this camera. Canon out did themselves on this one. The mirror shakes the whole camera even while shooting in live mode. I can count the seconds it takes to flip up. You will never get a professional picture with this junk.
Excerpt: We loved everything about this camera except its tendency to focus about 1-3 feet in front of the object on nearly every lens we tried. This was single central focus point with static objects in excellent day light. Autofocus adjustments in camera could not correct the extent of the error. This occured with 2 6D copies and used on 70-200 2.8 mark ii, 85mm 1.8, 50mm 2.5 etc... all good canon lenses.
Pros: Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
accessories that make up the kit are of very poor quality

Summary: The camera is excellent, stick to them expectations of the brand. However, the accessories are of very poor quality. So choose this kit is not a good option. The generic brand extra battery does not work with the model of the camera, the card reader cable is very weak, and the card reader easily disassembled, and camera briefcase is frayed quickly, plus the camera with the lens to fit in your briefcase.
Excerpt: I was looking to upgrade my canon 40d. The camera worked great for still portraits, iso was outstanding, however when i tried using it to shoot a bday party af did a terrible job-most pics of pple dancing were out of focus. My old canon 40d worked great w the same settings. I'm returning the camera.
Summary: Bought this with ipod 5 months ago - as the other reviewers say it is impossible to change the volume through the plastic. Worse still the design means that the earpiece socket sits right on your skin so impossible to stop sweat getting in - my ipod has corroded round the earpiece in just this short time and of course Apple refuse to honour their warranty even thought they recommend and sell this gym strap. Don't even think about buying one.
