Canon EOS 6D Review – The entry-level full-frame DSLR. It has a 20.2 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, Digic 5 processor, can shoot up to 4.5 frames per second and 11-point autofocus which is sensitive to -3 EV. AF is very snappy and doesn’t have any problem. Canon EOS 6D has a very good grip as it’s partly made of magnesium alloy partially and plastic but I consider that’s not really a problem as it’s definitely sturdy and doesn’t feel cheaper, lightweight it is though.
When looking at the controls and buttons you will see all the buttons are placed on one side just like the Canon’s 60D but just has no built-in flash and it has 3-inch screen as opposed to 3.2 inch on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Canon EOS 6D has built in Wi-Fi and GPS and has only one SD card slot. Due to its handy grip and small size compared to Canon 5D Mark III this is a very handy travel companions so if you are into travelling photography then you will love to take it with you. Extended ISO range is from 50 to 102800 while the native ISO ranges from 100 to 25,600 but as with all other cameras the extreme high and will always look pretty noisy but the good news is that this camera delivers very good low noise up to ISO 6400 and you even get usable images a 12,800. The video performance is up there with other Canon full frame DSLR’s capturing 1080 P HD video and up to 30 frames a second. It has an external mic jack but doesn’t have a headphone jack for monitoring while filming and while you can adjust most settings while shooting audio levels is not one of them.

Built-in Wi-Fi is a wow feature which might be interesting to some shooters who want to transfer images to another camera or print directly to a Wi-Fi capable printer, or even share images straight from the camera to the web. What I love the most about Wi-Fi connectivity is, it connects to a free smartphone app that lets you control the camera remotely. You can shoot from your own phone and keep in mind that this camera itself can be your Wi-Fi access point, so you can be miles from a Wi-Fi network and still control the camera remotely.

The reason people like Canon EOS 6D so much is that its full frame camera that’s designed for the enthusiast because this is the least expensive full frame camera, and Canon’s current lineup many people think it’s targeted exclusively at enthusiasts and not approached but the performance and features make this an easy choice for pros who are looking for a second body to go along with their top-of-the-line.
In addition to the Pro shooting modes there are two user definable positions so that you can store the settings that you use the most as well as for Automatic Mode, Scene Mode and Creative Auto mode. If you’re new to the Canon DSLR family you want to know that the Scene Mode is where you tell the camera what kind of environment you’re shooting and it adjusts all your settings for you and the Creative Auto Mode is for novices who are trying to capture certain looks but who are really familiar with all the necessary settings. To capture particular look, for example creative auto let you blur the background or make it sharp by simply moving the slider no aperture and shutter speed adjustments are necessary at all.
The combination of nice lens and impressive Canon EOS 6D allows you to focus quickly and capture tack sharp images with some fine details and nice skin tones. The image quality of Canon EOS 6D is on par with the best DSLR’s in the market today so it’s only those little luxury features like the joystick thumb control, weather sealed body, the advanced focusing system or high-speed performance features that would differentiate this camera from true top-of-the-line bodies. It will cost you $1,899.
