Canon EOS 6D Review

With the advent of digital SLRs, almost anyone venture into the ways of being a dedicated photographer. Canon's EOS 6D is a device that can provide a very practical, easy-to-use and powerful platform for those that are interested in taking photography a little bit more seriously.

 

One of the most sought after dSLR is the Canon EOS 6D. Its most distinct feature is its full frame sensor format that is tagged as the lightest and smallest within the brand. Furthermore, it boasts of a new CMOS censor which has an impressive 20.2 megapixels. The pixel count is quite close to the more advanced 5D Mark III. It provides the basic 100-25600 ISO range out of the box which can still be expanded to 102,400, while its AF system offers 11 points where one is a cross-type.

 

The most commendable features of the Canon EOS 6D which will easily attract consumers who are looking for better value for money are the integration of GPS system and WiFi – a first on a Canon SLR. Through the GPS feature, you may now embed location data into everything you capture. Moreover, there is logging option for keeping track of the day. On the other hand, using the WiFi feature lets you transfer images into your WiFi-enabled device such as tablets and smartphones which you can use then to upload the images in your social networking sites, and even printers. As expected, the rear control scheme of the Canon EOS 6D is different from its predecessors. It has long been a trend of the brand to experiment with its controls. Overall, the design and ergonomics are user-friendly. It almost weighs the same as the Canon 7D.

 

Image quality is superb. Color contrast, depth of field and amount of details captured meet high expectations. It produces quality images even under low light conditions when you already know how to go around its settings. This is indeed a perfect choice for the serious amateur – the in-between of a beginner and a professional. However, video quality does not offer anything spectacular, and is likely to disappoint when compared to its competitors. A catchy feature of the Canon EOS 6D is it lets you use your smartphone as its wireless remote control. You just need to have the Remote app for IOS or Android specific to Canon EOS. Indeed, the Canon EOS 6D taps the potential of new media to provide users with optimum experience.

  • Pros:
    Awesome performance; Very bright and clear viewfinder; WiFi and GPS built
  • Cons:
    Cumbersome HDR mode; No built-in flash
Our score:
5 / 5
