Canon's new full frame Digital SLR, the Canon EOS 6D has impressed many with it's high specification and competitive price point. Previously users of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II had to choose whether to invest in the more expensive Canon EOS 5D Mark III priced at around £2700, whereas now they can purchase the Canon EOS 6D for around £1799, and also benefit from built in GPS and Wi-Fi.
Canon EOS 6D key features
- Full-frame 20.2 Megapixel sensor
- Tough, lightweight construction
- Max ISO 25,600 (expandable to ISO 102,400)
- 11-point AF sensitive down to -3EV
- GPS3 records your location
- Wi-Fi2 file transfer and remote control
- Full-HD video
The camera is quite compact in the hand and it's quite difficult to demonstrate the size without actually seeing it. Unfortunately the Canon EOS 6D isn't likely to be available to buy until December.
