Canon’s new EOS 6D

The new  EOS 6D is Canon’s smallest and lightest dslr at 770g, similar in size to the 60D. Besides being compact for a dslr, the 6D has a full-frame sensor.

You can also use your smartphone to remotely adjust the camera’s shooting settings and focus, remotely trigger the shutter and view images. You can then view them on the camera’s own 3-inch high-res LCD screen with anti-glare.

Integrated GPS can tag photos with your location when they’re shot, and record your movements via a GPS logger and Map Utility software.

I’m surprised that it doesn’t accept compact flash cards as with most full-frame dslr’s, instead it has a UHS-1-compatible SD card slot.

DLNA compatibility means you can view videos and images from your camera on your HD TV, too.

Main specifications:

  • 20.2MP full frame CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC 5+ image processor
  • ISO 100-25600 standard, 50-102800 expanded
  • 4.5 fps continuous shooting
  • ‘Silent’ shutter mode
  • 1080p30 video recording, stereo sound via external mic
  • 11 point AF system, center point cross-type and sensitive to -3 EV
  • 63 zone iFCL metering system
  • 97% viewfinder coverage; interchangeable screens (including Eg-D grid and Eg-S fine-focus)
  • 1040k dot 3:2 3″ ClearView LCD (fixed)
  • Single SD card slot
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and GPS
  • Single-axis electronic level

The Canon EOS 6D will be available this December for £1,799 for the body only and £2,519.99 for the camera and Canon’s EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM zoom lens.
