EOS 6D

Rating: 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

Lowest Price: £1,279.00

A similar size and weight to the EOS 60D, the EOS 6D is the world’s lightest[i] DSLR to feature a full-frame CMOS sensor, making it ideal for travel, portrait and landscape photographers. The model creates a new entry point into Canon’s full-frame line-up, and is perfect for those who want greater control over depth of field, or to maximise the impact of shooting with the EOS system’s extensive range of wide-angle EF lenses.
