Canon 6D Full Frame Announced

http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/17/canon-eos-6d-dslr/



Used to be, to get a full-frame sensor in a Canon camera, you had to shell out big bucks for a pro rig like the 5D Mark III or 1D X. No longer. Canon's just unveiled its EOS 6D, the smallest, lightest and cheapest full-frame DSLR it's ever made. Weighing 690g, the 6D is 20 percent lighter than the 5D Mark III, and at $2,099, it's a full $1,400 less than its heftier stablemate -- which also puts it directly in line with Nikon's recently released full-frame shooter, the D600. In addition to that mammoth sensor, the 6D's the first EOS camera to have built-in WiFi. When paired with the company's free iOS and Android apps, you can use your phone to change the 6D's settings, take and geotag photos using the live remote function, and even transfer those shots to your handset wirelessly.

The 6D packs a 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5+ image processor that shoots stills at 4.5fps, does HDR (though it only saves the composite image, not the individual shots), and 1080p 30fps video in 29 minute 59 second clips. Its sensitivity runs from ISO 100 up to 102,400 (extended) and has an 11-point autofocus system with an EV -3 sensitivity rating for better low light performance. There's a 3-inch, 1.04 million dot ClearView LCD on the back to supplement the optical viewfinder, plus it's got a stereo mic jack to ensure the audio matches the quality of your HD videos. To store your imaging masterpieces, the 6D has a single SD card slot that's SDHC and SDXC compatible. When it goes on sale this December, the 6D will be sold in two configurations: $2,099 for the body only, and a kit that throws in a 24-105mm f/4L USM zoom lens for $2,899.

Well I still can't currently afford it, but what's the difference between this and the 5D3?

My wish came true! I would still probably buy a 5DII if I had the cash though.

Birds vs Monkeys !!! ooops I mean Canon vs Nikon lol

Again this is a win win for the consumer. 6D or D600. hmmm they both have the same number .. Coincidence I think not !

Looks like the 6D is more close to a pro camera than the Nikon D600

Yeah specs wise. Yeah. (did I stutter) lol No Flash on Camera. Wi-fi. GPS. One tired azz SD slot. ooh that last feature not really. tee hee

Okay how about this .. ((correction)) ah hmm The 6D specs are a little bit more closer to the pro cameras than the D600?


I could have said how silly for Canon to release a 60Da and 6D. I would love to walk into a store and ask for a 60Da and get a 6D

I actually think it's further from a pro camera. Only one SD slot and the most inferior of all the AF systems. But as a good cheap video camera, it's great. However if all the good film lenses also went on Nikon's, I might say the d600 is superior.

I wouldnt change my 5DII for this, still plastic Rebel like body, that of the 60D, max shutter speed of 1/4000th...many fine details that aren't a benefit!

However if you want a cheap entry level FF, this would be the one for sure!
