The Canon EOS 6D is Canon’s entry-level full frame camera. It delivers gorgeously rich and detailed images from a large 20.2 megapixel sensor concealed inside a compact and rugged body. The camera weighs just 755 grams (body only), and is quick and easy to use. Together with its in-built GPS logger and WiFi capability, the Canon 6D is the perfect choice for travel and wildlife photography.
Low light performance on the Canon EOS 6D is astounding. The camera’s standard ISO sensitivity range extends to 25600 (expandable to ISO 102400), rendering dimly lit scenes in high resolution with stunning clarity. Enhancing the camera’s imaging performance still further is the EOS 6D’s 11-point AF System. Operable down to -3EV, which is sensitive enough to grab sharp focus in moonlight, the AF-system delivers quick and accurate auto-focus tracking for moving objects, even if your target is positioned off-centre in your frame.
Canon’s DIGIC 5+ image processor is the 6D’s powerhouse. It gives photographers the ability to catch iconic moments in high resolution with continuous shooting at up to 4.5 frames per second. The Canon EOS 6D’s processor also enables RAW image processing in-camera, as well as Full HD movie recording at up to 30 frames per second. Together with additional features like a HDR mode and multiple image stacking, the Canon EOS 6D digital SLR camera is a highly versatile full-frame unit ripe for pushing creative boundaries.
Access high-resolution photography with the Canon EOS 6D 20.2MP Full-Frame Sensor
As a full-frame camera the Canon EOS 6D employs a large 36 x 24mm CMOS sensor to capture high-resolution images. Larger than the APS-C sized sensor found in Canon cropped frame cameras, the 6D’s full-frame CMOS sensor contains larger pixels capable of gathering more light. The result is an appreciably higher level of detail rendered with better micro-contrast and smoother gradation between colour tones.
Photographers also get to experience increased fine-scale control over their depth of field. Blurred backgrounds in bokeh shots are super-smooth, making the Canon EOS 6D digital SLR one of the best cameras on the market for portrait and macro photography.
Perfect focus in low light
The Canon EOS 6D is built to deliver outstanding low light performance. Native ISO sensitivity of between ISO 100 – 25600 is expandable to between 50 – 102400, and even at these extreme levels of light sensitivity the 6D produces accurate low-noise images.
Where the Canon EOS 6D really scores big though is in its ability to grab sharp focus in very low light. An 11-point AF system with even coverage across the whole frame is complemented by a more refined cross-type point in the middle of the frame. It offers sensitivity down to -3EV, which is a full stop lower than on the Canon EOS 5D MKIII. In real terms this means that you can effectively grab sharp focus using the camera’s AF system outside at night when the moon is full.
Geotag and Share with WiFi & GPS
Pinpoint the exact location, date and time of each image taken with your Canon 6D using the camera’s in-built GPS system. When enabled your latitude, longitude, altitude, date and time are recorded in your image EXIF data. It makes tracking moving subjects (like wildlife) an easy task, while WiFi connectivity gives you the option to shoot images remotely too using your smartphone, tablet or laptop.
And when you’re done why not share your photos instantly with the world. WiFi gives you the option to wirelessly transfer your work to other WiFi enabled devices, and to directly upload your images to the Internet without needing to put them on a computer first.
Compact and Lightweight DSLR Design
In designing the EOS 6D Canon looked to develop a highly portable full frame camera that was tough and compact, but was built in such a way as to ensure that its diminutive size would not compromise image performance. This they have achieved, the Canon 6D’s body featuring an aluminium alloy and polycarbonate chassis for lightness. The camera’s outer skin is made from a magnesium and polycarbonate mix, adding extra durability to the structure.
When compared to some other DSLR models you really notice the difference in weight when holding the Canon 6D. As such, this is a great full-frame camera for travel and wildlife photography.
