Update: 3 camera bodies had focus issues

Islandphoto, B&H Photo
29 November 2014
  • Excerpt: As mentioned in my initial review, I felt the photos were frequently soft or out of focus. I eventually went through 3 different 6D bodies, and when I used DPP and sent the images to Canon, it was clear that a significant portion of the time, the camera was not focussing on the activated focus point. I have a hard time understanding how this could be true for 3 separate camera bodies but it was verified by the Canon engineers when I sent them >20 images from each camera.
  • Pros: High ISO Performance

Software not current

Jesse K, Canon
12 November 2014
  • Conclusion: "There is no - software for the OS Version you selected." That's the message on Canon's site for the current Mac OS, Yosemite. This little message means I now need to find workarounds for all the Canon software I've been using with my 6D. Whoever at Canon thinks this is acceptable, it is not. You need to prioritize keeping on top of software updates on Macs, which many pro's use. This is poor support. Please update your software.

Meh

Rory W. Tyer, Amazon
25 August 2014
  • Summary: At first glance this seems like a great bundle deal, but the only things really worthwhile here are the camera, the lens, and the 64gb memory card. The tripod is a cheap piece of junk that I don't like trusting with such a nice camera and the bag I received is cheaper and smaller than the one pictured here--not sure if that was an anomaly or not, but makes me distrust the company.

6D plus 24-105 combo

Almost satisfied, B&H Photo
8 May 2014
  • Excerpt: If I was a 3: 2 photographer, I would give this combo 5 stars and this review would end here. But that is not the case. Since the advent of 16: 9 HDTV's, the 3: 2 format became sort of dinosaur for me. No print, no Kodachrome slide comes anywhere near the theater-like experience of watching 16: 9 pictures on the large screen HDTV.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance

Canon 6D battery glitch

Sara, B&H Photo
10 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The camera works as was expected except that the battery and the charger have a "glitch" (as told to me by one of the B&H customer service people) where sometimes it won't register to the camera that it is charged!! Makes me nervous considering that I use it for shooting wedding receptions but I will continue to do some more testing of it before my season starts. I was told you can override this by unplugging the charger and plugging it back in again several times.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
  • Cons: Battery Glitch

Review of EOS 6D

SK, B&H Photo
25 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I have a EOS 7D and wanted a full frame camera to compliment. It is too soon to tell but I still favor my 7D. I am sure it will just take time to learn the new camera. I do think the 6D is easier to learn and use. I like the auto options. Sometimes nice to just enjoy what you are photographing and not worry about manual settings.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality

I think i have pixel issues with my 6D

The Viking, B&H Photo
4 February 2014
  • Excerpt: It feels very robust compared to my other canon cameras. The lock on the mode dial, is a nice feature. The L-lens seems to be made for long professional use, compared to my old 17-55 mm lens etc. I have only taken few pictures so fare and the camera is very good at low light. However I have some pictures with pixel issues in the blue sky which are very notisable. My other câmeras like 600D and 450D do not have these pixel issues in the blue sky.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, High ISO Performance, Quiet
  • Cons: Color issues, Pixel Issues, Poor Image Quality, Small LCD Screen

On the fence

Islandphoto, B&H Photo
24 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I am probably the ideal purchaser of this camera--we own a sizeable collection of high end Canon glass (macros, L lenses with IS, telephotos, etc) and have a crop sensor Canon that is a few years old. Engaged amateurs who want ONE camera body to serve all our DSLR needs for the next 3-4 years (in addition to a small travel camera).What I wanted in a new camera was: 1) excellent reliable autofocus 2) full frame with excellent image quality and improved ISO capabilities3)...
