Canon announces full-frame EOS 6D DSLR

Canon announces full-frame EOS 6D DSLR

September 2012

Canon has announced the compact 20.2 Megapixel EOS 6D DSLR – the world’s lightest (*1) DSLR to feature a full-frame CMOS sensor, making it ideal for travel, portrait and landscape photographers.

The EOS 6D creates a new entry point into Canon’s full-frame DSLR 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.

The camera combines a powerful, full-frame imaging system and superior low-light performance with a compact, robust and lightweight design. For the first time in any EOS SLR model, WiFi (*2) and GPS (*3) connectivity are included, empowering photographers to capture stunning images on the move, tag them with location information and wirelessly transfer them to a computer, the cloud, or smart phones.

Incredible images in all conditions

Benefitting from 25 years of EOS innovation, the EOS 6D features a newly designed 20.2 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor that allows photographers to produce poster-sized prints, or to crop into their shots with no compromise in quality. A native ISO range of ISO 100-25,600 (extendable to 50-102,400) also makes capturing crisp, natural shots in near darkness easier than ever before.

A new 11-point AF system utilises a new AF sensor with improved pixel configuration and offers the strongest low light performance of any Canon AF system to date. With focusing down to EV-3, the equivalent of moonlight, subjects remain in-focus in even the most challenging lighting conditions – offering the freedom to shoot landscapes or portraits at night and capture the true atmosphere of the scene with minimal noise.

Explore your creativity to the full

The inclusion of a full-frame sensor in the EOS 6D offers greater control over depth-of-field in portraits, allowing photographers to easily isolate their subjects with attractive background blur. With the EOS 6D, photographers can now also explore the full potential of their wide-angle EF lenses to capture every detail of a sweeping landscape, with models ranging from 8mm to 800mm.

Additionally, powerful DIGIC 5+ image processing offers a host of automatic modes and creative shooting features, complementing full manual controls to offer total flexibility to a wide range of users, plus a top shooting speed of 4.5fps at full resolution. In-camera correction of lens lateral and axial chromatic aberration is applied to every image captured, even when shooting at maximum speed.

The EOS 6D is full of advanced features to assist photographers in capturing outstanding quality landscapes and portraits. HDR mode enables the capture of both highlights and low lights in tricky lighting conditions, while Multiple Exposure mode allows photographers to combine up to nine separate exposures into a single image in-camera, creating a dramatic effect in the final picture. A silent drive mode offers a more subtle option for shooting candid portraits or weddings, and a single axis electronic level accessed through the viewfinder, or via the LCD screen, ensures that horizons are level during image composition.

Built for sharing

The EOS 6D is the first ever EOS to feature integrated WiFi connectivity, thus enabling photographers to share their work immediately after shooting. Images can be wirelessly transferred to external storage devices, uploaded to Facebook and YouTube, or printed wirelessly using a Canon WiFi enabled printer. Alternatively, movies and images can be viewed on DLNA-enabled HDTVs – enabling high-quality, big-screen viewing. By wirelessly connecting to a smart phone, photographers can also remotely control the camera to adjust shooting settings and focus before remotely triggering the shutter and viewing the captured image.

Using the EOS 6D’s integrated GPS, images can be tagged with location data as they are shot. Travellers can also build a more complete record of their trip by using the GPS logger function to track their route, which can be displayed using the supplied Map Utility (EOS software).

Robust, intuitive design

Measuring just 144.5x110.5x71.2mm and weighing 755g (*4), the EOS 6D is one of the most compact full-frame DSLRs ever manufactured. Its dust- and drip-proof, part-magnesium body offers robust protection and an intuitive button layout for easy control. Photographers can also view their shots in stunning detail and with natural colours on the large, high-resolution 7.7cm (3.0”) Clear View LCD screen, which features an enhanced anti-glare design to permit viewing in bright sunlight and at extreme angles.

A new Battery Grip BG-E13 provides additional power for extended shooting, while also making it easy to shoot both vertically and horizontally. When used with two LP-E6 batteries, the battery grip offers double the number of shots, and it can also be used with AA batteries for added convenience and flexibility.
