The Good Image quality; Full frame sensor; Built in wifi; Built in GPS.
The Bad Limited autofocus points; No built-in flash.
The Bottom Line It isn't pocket money, but the EOS 6D nonetheless puts full-frame features within reach of the more ambitious enthusiast photographer. I'd have happily swapped the GPS and Wifi for more autofocus points, but it's nonetheless a great body that captures great colours and very detailed shots.
Canon EOS 6D
Canon's DSLR line-up is becoming increasingly busy. As well as the so-called 'beginners' range, which now comprises four traditional DSLRs and the mirrorless, it's got so many pro and semi-pro models that it's had to split the upper part of its range in two, for 'enthusiasts' and professionals'.
The EOS 6D is the newest entrant in this upper portion, and sits among the enthusiasts cameras, beside the EOS 60D and EOS 7D and will, in many peoples' eyes, be immediately more appealing than either of those on account of the size of its sensor.
It's built around a 20.2 megapixel full-frame sensor putting out 5472 x 3648 pixel images. Being full-frame there's naturally no crop factor, so you don't need to multiply up your lens' focal length to work out how it compares to a 35mm camera. It also means, though, that if you're upgrading from a consumer model like the, you won't be able to take your EF-S lenses with you, so you may as well trade in the whole bundle.
