The Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only) is a full-frame 20.2MP DSLR offering exceptionally high image quality and detail while providing compatibility and convenience through its design and features. When paired with the powerful DIGIC 5+ image processor and 14-bit A/D conversion, the full-frame sensor is capable of recording vivid imagery with expanded sensitivity up to ISO 102400. The processing power also affords intelligent noise reduction techniques and the ability to record continuous still images at a rate up to 4.5 full resolution fps.

The 6D employs an 11-point autofocus system for acquiring precise focus regardless of the shooting situation, which is further enhanced by a center cross-type focus point for improved low-light focus sensitivity. The iFCL 63-zone dual layer metering sensor also benefits from the autofocus system when making exposure measurements, and analyzes color and luminance values within the scene to determine accurate exposure settings.

Full HD video recording is possible up to 1080/30p in the All I-frame or IPB compression, as well as the standard H.264/MPEG-4 AVC codec. When recording HD video, full manual control over exposure and sound is possible, enabling you to take complete control over the final appearance of your movies.

Built-in Wi-Fi and GPS technologies also provide extensive connectivity to the 6D. The built-in Wi-Fi capability allows you to take remote control over the 6D when used in conjunction with the Canon EOS Remote app (available for iOS and Android), as well as instantly share the images from your camera to your phone or to the CANON iMAGE GATEWAY. The GPS receiver will automatically record locational data and embed this information into the metadata of your images, allowing you to geotag your shots and map out where each shot was taken.

The 6D features a smaller form factor compared to other full-frame DSLRs, but still integrates a large 3.0" 1,040K-dot TFT LCD monitor for clear playback and review of your imagery. The construction of the body integrates an aluminum alloy and polycarbonate chassis within a magnesium and polycarbonate shell for durability while still maintaining a lightweight profile.

20.2 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS Sensor, 14-Bit A/D Conversion, DIGIC 5+ Image Processor
The large full-frame 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor offers a high level of image quality with attention given to sharpness, detail, and depiction of colors and tones within a scene. Due to increased information and detail, a larger sensor is capable of producing greater visual depth and smoother gradients and tonal transitions. Additionally, a large sensor provides more leeway to control the plane of focus and apply selective focus techniques.

This sensor delivers images with a maximum resolution of 5472 x 3648 pixels, with a pixel size of 6.55 µm square, for greater reception of light and a higher signal-to-noise ratio. This pixel structure works in close collaboration with the DIGIC 5+ image processor, and its 14-bit A/D conversion, to produce a native sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600, which can be further expanded to ISO 50-102400.

In addition to contributing to the low-light sensitivity, the DIGIC 5+ processor also delivers overall speed and power to the 6D and utilizes dual 4-channel A/D converter front-end processing circuits for expedited conversion of both JPEG and RAW file formats. This enables a maximum continuous shooting rate of 4.5 full resolution frames-per-second as well as greater noise reduction when working at higher ISOs. The DIGIC 5+ processor also provides real-time compensation for chromatic aberration when working with both still and moving imagery.
11-Point Autofocus System
The 6D integrates an 11-point AF system for fast and precise focusing regardless of your subject matter or working situation. These 11 points provide even coverage across the entire frame while a more refined center cross-type point with EV -3 sensitivity provides more efficient, accurate low-light focusing. One-shot AF, AI Servo AF, and AI Focus AF are all available depending on one's needs, and furthermore the AI Servo mode is customizable in regard to focus tracking, acceleration, and deceleration sensitivities, as well as 1st or 2nd image priority adjustments. Lens data can also be entered and customized within the camera for greater focus refinement when working with wide-angle or telephoto lenses.

Also contributing to sharp focus, the 6D incorporates a large, bright pentaprism viewfinder with 21mm eye point and 97% frame coverage for clear viewing of the scene. This construction greatly benefits the manual focusing capabilities, as well as general low-light composition.
iFCL 63-Zone Dual Layer Metering Sensor
An intelligent metering system works in conjunction with the autofocus system and independently analyzes focus, color, and luminance within the scene for the most precise exposure settings possible. The 63 zones cover the entire image area with great detail and the dual-layer design permits a wider sensitivity to different wavelengths of light.

The dual layers are split into a red/green channel and a blue/green channel; which counters the red light sensitivity bias electronic sensors inherently have. A series of algorithms are employed to combine data received from both layers, with the resulting exposure reading being extremely accurate regardless of the shooting conditions.

This metering system employs evaluative, center-weighted, and spot metering methods to determine exposure, as well as allowing for a +/- 5 EV exposure compensation for greater manipulation of the determined exposure setting.
EOS HD Video
Full HD video recording is supported in multiple formats, including 1080/30p, 24p, 25p; 720/60p, 50p; 480/60p, 50p. While recording video, a 4GB automatic file partition is employed in order to gain longer continuous recording times, up to 29 minutes 59 seconds. Both All I-frame (requires UHS-I memory card) and IPB compressions are supported as well as the standard H.264/MPEG-4 AVC codec. Embedding the time code is also possible for greater convenience when recording with multiple cameras.

Video performance is further enhanced with the ability to manually adjust your exposure settings and audio levels; exposure can be adjusted using both aperture and shutter speed variables, and sound can be managed through a 64-level volume control. Additionally, an external stereo microphone can be used and is connected through the 3.5mm microphone terminal.

The DIGIC 5+ processor also dramatically improves video response times and helps to reduce color artifacts, aberrations, and moiré while providing the ability to record with sensitivities up to ISO 25600 in H mode.
Built-In Wi-Fi and GPS
Built-in Wi-Fi and GPS technologies enable highly functional connectivity with other devices, including the ability to instantly share imagery from your camera and geotag your photographs.

Exposure settings can be controlled remotely from your smartphone when using Canon's proprietary iOS and Android app, Canon EOS Remote, allowing you to make exposures and modify camera settings from a distance. You can also review imagery from your camera on your smart device, and transfer files wirelessly. Full DNLA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility is supported, which enables you to share your images from the 6D with other household products such as HDTVs, tablets, and other Wi-Fi-enabled Canon cameras. You are also able to upload still images directly to CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, allowing you to then easily share images with social networking sites without the use of a computer.

The GPS receiver functions similarly and is able to record locational data (longitude, latitude, altitude, and universal coordinated time) as EXIF data which is then embed into your image files. This then permits you to track where your images were recorded and view your exact route traveled.
Efficient Design
The EOS 6D contains a large full-frame sensor within a compactly-sized body for greater portability without sacrificing image quality. The body features an aluminum alloy and polycarbonate chassis with a magnesium and polycarbonate exterior for durability. The shutter rated up to 100,000 cycles.

Also contributing to the efficiency of design, an Integrated Cleaning System permits internal dust removal. To counter the effects of dust within the housing, the glass filter is cleaned through ultrasonic vibration and the dust particles are collected by an adsorbent. This unit is completely sealed from external contaminants, and the optical low-pass filter features an anti-dust fluorine coating for ease in removing more substantial dust particles.
3.0" Clear View LCD Monitor
The 3.0" Clear View TFT LCD provides high quality viewing with a 1,040,000-dot resolution and anti-reflection coating. This allows for sharp and clear viewing in even the brightest of conditions and displays images and videos with great detail and richness. The display also features a viewing angle up to 160° for review from the side or below.

When used in conjunction with Live View mode, a smaller display is superimposed over the image. Live View mode permits real-time image review and can also place grid lines over the image for compositional help. A built-in electronic level is available for maintaining consistent horizons or for lining up parallel lines within a scene. You can also zoom into and navigate within the image when in Live View and use the grid lines for minute control and precision over the alignment of your photograph.
Built-In HDR and Multiple Exposure Modes
A High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode is available and allows for the creation of HDR images in-camera, reducing the time needed to manually overlay images in post-production. When using this mode, a series of bracketed exposures are made of the same image, then automatically integrated into the same frame, resulting in a photograph without blown highlights or blocked up shadows and a long middle range of tones. This mode is especially useful when photographing scenes with a great deal of contrast.

Multiple exposures are also possible in-camera and up to 9 exposures can be recorded onto a single file using 2 distinct settings for control. When in Additive mode, this closely resembles making multiple exposures on film and layers each exposure; manual exposure compensation is required. Average mode layers the images and automatically compensates for the final exposure, eliminating the unintended possibility of gross under or overexposure. Multiple exposures can be recorded in either JPEG or RAW formats, and furthermore you can utilize an existing RAW image as a starting point from which to layer subsequent images, which can then be manipulated in real time on the LCD.
Scene Intelligent Auto and Special Scene modes
Scene Intelligent Auto mode incorporates a number of Canon's automatic exposure technology together in order to output a well-refined exposure. Picture Style Auto, Automatic Lighting Optimizer, Automatic White Balance, Autofocus, and Automatic Exposure are all employed to intelligently analyze the scene at hand and produce the most effective exposure settings to clearly render your subject matter.

Special Scene modes also help to enhance your imagery by applying a system of corrections for use in more difficult lighting situations. Handheld Night Scene automatically captures four consecutive exposures, at shutter speeds fast enough to handhold, and layers them into a single frame. This allows you to effectively record images in darker situations without the need of a tripod or stabilization device. HDR Backlight Control works in the same manner and records a series of exposures at different values to ensure highlight and shadow values are not lost. These under and over-exposed images are blended to create a final image with a wider dynamic range.
Other Features
  • Compatible with SD, SDHC, and SDXC, including Ultra High Speed (UHS-I), memory cards.
  • Peripheral illumination, chromatic aberration, and distortion corrections are available and programmable through a menu of different available EF lenses. This lens data is used to automatically correct for each individual lens' traits to produce the cleanest image possible.
  • In-camera RAW processing and JPEG resizing are available to allow for expedited offloading of imagery that is instantly reading for the method in which you intend to share it.
  • Comparative playback allows you to view two images side-by-side in order to expedite editing procedures on the camera's LCD.
  • Silent shooting is a low-vibration shooting mode that slows and mutes the shutter and mirror reflex, enabling a more discrete method of capturing imagery.

We all know it doesn't beat the D600 in FPS, pixels, memory slots and a couple of other things. However I'm not going to miss those since the ease of use, feel and image quality are excellent. I was tempted and almost went with the Nikon, especially since I didn't have a serious investment in glass. However, after trying out both in the store and looking at my test shots in which the Canon exceeded on low light and higher ISOs I went with the Canon, sure the mkiii would beat it except for weight, yet I still would go with the 6D and use the extra 1,400 on some L glass. Last, it doesn't bother me that it doesn't have a nearly a hundred point auto focus system. Although those are great for paparazzi and sports photographers, I'm neither. I prefer the cleaner viewfinder.

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) the ability to take a variety of types of photographs from travel photography to photographs of children and friends to casual sports photography to casual but very good photos at parties and weddings and spontaneous life events4) lighter body and smaller price tag than the Mark 35) great video a plusCanon could easily have made such a great camera at this price point and persuaded a lot of people considering crop sensors to spend more for a fantastic camera. A gateway drug to Canon making serious money when all the happy 6D owners start buying nice Canon lenses. The ideal 6D would be a full frame camera with the best features of the 7D/70D. It could have GPS and Wifi to differentiate it from Nikon. The Mark III could still have more AF points and better weatherproofing and if sales of the Mark III dropped...well, bring on the Mark IV. Instead, it leaves me feeling that the marketing department is trying to squeeze every cent out of me to either buy a second body (for sports) or a better camera (the Mark III). One should feel happy after dropping $[$]. Not mildly annoyed.Autofocus. I am not getting tack sharp photos even with the central focus point and a tripod and superb (and just serviced) glass. This could be a defective unit or my technique so I am having this checked out, since others do not seem to have this issue. For sports (kids ice hockey indoors) the keeper rate is low. It just does not track well enough under those conditions and perhaps the AF is too slow even in servo to nail many shots.Obvious issues with easy fixes:1) One cannot shoot anything fast-moving except in TV mode (or M) because both P and AV mode will drop the shutter speed to absurdly low levels (like 1/15) before even thinking of bumping the ISO. This is absurd in a camera whose main selling point is the ISO range! The camera knows which lens is attached so it should know that this will result in a bad shot. It should also assume that one does not have a tripod attached (and could be designed to detect a tripod anyway). It is as though Canon took the algorithms from a 1980s camera and dropped it into the 6D without any further thought. In theory, you can set a minimum shutter speed in one of the controls, but the fastest programmable minimum speed is...wait for it...drumroll: 1/250. Or even children bolting around? Fairly useless. So the only way to shoot anything that requires >1/250 is TV (lose control of DoF) or of course M. Manual is no excuse for ill-considered algorithms. 2) In manual, one cannot use exposure compensation--why? 3) Why no firmware update to turn the GPS off when the camera powers down or is turned off as the default mode?So do I keep this almost good enough but really rather expensive camera ? or do I spring for something small and fun (Fujifilm X100s or similar) while waiting to see if Canon comes out with the 6D Mark II at a reasonable price?DREAM 6D MARK II--Superb AF: somewhere between 70D and 5D Mark III with ability to properly track moving subjects. All/most points cross-type sensors. --Same ISO capabilities as it has now--Joystick/easier adjustment of the AF points (since they would now be useful)--Change Creative Auto to allow one to pick the AF point (then it would be more useful for handing to a friend for a quick family snap)--Update the algorithms so that one can choose ranges for ISO, aperture and shutter speed across the whole range that the camera can usefully do (allow one to pick both shutter speed and aperture in program mode and to set the shutter speed range to anything one wants in AV)--lose the other amateur settings--have 3 user defined settings--pop up flash (there are always times...)--second card slot (not for me but everyone else wants this)--GPS turns off when camera is off or after x minutes of inactivity (user defined) as the default--eliminate the moire in videoI would happily spend $300 more for a 6D with much improved autofocus and NO other improvements. But I was not/am not willing to spend an extra $1300-1500 just for better autofocus (Mark III). To me that seems like too much for something that should already be there.Apologies for the long review, but writing it has helped me see that I cannot quite give the camera 4 stars. It should be a great all around camera but the problems with autofocus limit its utility to stationary objects. This is why I would give it 3.5 stars.

Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

I bought this because I wated a good camera that could take beautiful images. I am a noob, and don't know much about it. I have seen some courses in Lynda.com and some videos on YouTube so I have started to understand a little beyond the basics. I have no complains so far, I think this camera is really nice. I got a Sigma 35mm F/1.4 and I couldn't be happier.

    My first full-frame digital camera and wow. Amazing is all I can say. The high iso (25600) is incredible. I took night shots and had to reduce my exposure time from 30 seconds down to 8 because I was getting too many(!) stars in the background that were crowding out the constellation I was trying to photograph (Orion, in case you care). I was even able to reduce the ISO down to 800 and the time up to 15 sec and still get awesome shots. The sensor is just that good. Best.Astrophotography.Camera.Ever.

      Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

      Purchased this camera as an upgrade to my 60D. Love taking photography of landscapes and macro. Huge upgrade!!! Tried the 70D but didn't find much difference from the 60D I had, so put out few extra bucks for the 6D. The photo quality is simply outstanding. Full frame is no doubt a big plus when you want more quality pics and much lower noise using high iso settings. This camera might not be what you want if you do sports shooting as the fps is a little slower, but I'm not into that. This camera is light so great for travelling. When travelling I usually use an L lens and even in rainy weather have never had a problem(weatherproofing is obviously very good) All in all this is a very well made camera that produces OUTSTANDING photos.

                  I love this camera. I've been shooting professional photography and videography for the last five years. Four years ago I got on board of the DSLR train for my video work. I've used a variety of Canon bodies throughout the last four years, and this is by far the best one yet. I'd take this over the Mark III anyway. It's low light capabilities are astonishing. It's picture is crisp and beautiful (which is magnified with the L-series lens collection). For the money, it's one of the best DSLR's on the market. Hands down.

                    Upgraded from a 40D camera. Huge difference! My first photo shoot was outdoor grad photos. I couldn't believe how sharp and vibrant the images were. Also great in low light. So far I love everything about it.

                      Love this camera. I have been looking to upgrade to a full frame camera for quite some time. This camera has the easy use of my other Canon DSLR. The photos I have taken with this camera have been sharper and when I use auto WB the colors are pretty darn spot on. I would buy this camera again and again and recommend it to my photographer friends. I also love the option to make the shutter sound quieter. The last thing a wedding photographer wants it to draw MORE attention to themselves.

                        Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                        I have both a 5D mkIII and a 6D and i must say that i like the 6D better because of the layout and ease of menu nav. obviously the 5D has the dual mem card/type option and a moire filter for less moire more noticably in video. however i have done A-B moire tests and they look 96% the same. they both can do raw vid if used with ML. The 6D generates phanominal photos. For the price. def get 6D!!!

                        * if you do alot of HDR in the field rather than in post.... the 5D excells.. also 5D has a little faster burst rate for sports or fast wild life.

                        i use my cameras every day and the 6D stands out!

                                The video from 6D are perfect!!

                                  Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                                  I have been using Canons since my first digital camera in the 1980s. I am semi-pro and shoot products for my company as well as fine art, landscapes and portraits. The 6D has been an easy transition with several improvements in design and capability. I can shoot in much lower light and the detail available from the full frame is beyond anything I've used before. I am very happy with my purchase.
