The Canon EOS 6D digital slr is the smallest and lightest camera offers a pixel of 20.2MP and standard ISO range of 100-25600, expandable down to 50 and up to 102,400. Canon 6D front profile is very similar to the Nikon D600, but it's rather slimmer front-to-back, and lighter too.
The Canon EOS 6D integrated Wi-Fi unit has the basic functionality you might expect, allowing transfer of images to a smartphone and direct upload to social media sites such as Facebook and YouTube.
The Canon EOS 6D gains Canon's silent shutter mode that we saw on the 5D Mark III, which offers quieter, more discreet shooting. It gets in-camera HDR and Multiple Exposure modes, but disappointingly these are JPEG only, unlike on the 5D Mark III that also records RAW files. There's also a single-axis electronic level to check for wonky horizons.
In concert with the DIGIC 5+ processor it offers a standard ISO range of 100-25600, expandable down to 50 and up to 102,400. The AF system has 11 points, but only the central one is cross-type (i.e. sensitive to both vertical and horizontal detail). However according to Canon to will operate at extremely low light levels; right down to -3 EV – a stop dimmer than the 5D Mark III.
The GPS unit includes exactly the same functionality as on the company's compacts - it can embed location data into every image, and has a logging function that can keep track of where you've been through the day. This, we suspect, will be most-popular with landscape and travel photographers.
You can also send images directly to a Wi-Fi-enabled printer. But we think more photographers are likely be interested by the fact that it can also be used to turn your smartphone into a wireless remote control via Canon's EOS Remote app for iOS or Android, complete with live view and full control of exposure settings.
