With a relatively affordable price, enthusiast-friendly features, and spectacular image quality, it's an easy Editors' Choice.Gizmodo60Canon EOS 6D Review: Beautiful Full-Frame Stills,If you are most interested in stills and don't care that much about video quality, the 6D is a great value—it produces top-notch pictures, with very few compromises, at a lower price than we've ever seen.TechCrunch80The Canon 6D: A Solid Beginner Full-Frame, With A...the Canon 6D is a thrilling, welcome addition to Canon’s line-up, at a price that, while still expensive, won’t break the bank for a photographer looking for the expanded composition capabilities of a full-frame sensor.Pocket-Lint80Canon EOS 6D reviewOverall the EOS 6D is a mix of some heady highs mixed up with some minor disappointments that lead to its score slipping down the scale a smidgen. It's still a cracking DSLR, at a welcome price point, but it does have its work cut out when considering the competition.Camera Labs90Canon EOS 6D review... the 6D is a solid, dependable, affordable full-frame DSLR that is ideally suited to the kinds of photographer Canon has pitched it to. For Landscape travel and portraiture, and that covers a lot of ground, the 6D is a superb perfomer and comes highly recommended.T380Canon EOS 6D reviewCanon has pitched the 20.2 effective megapixel EOS 6D as offering an entry point into its full frame professional DSLR line-up for those looking to trade up from an APS-C sensor DSLR.Digital Versus100Canon EOS 6D ReviewThe Canon EOS 6D is an attractive full-frame SLR (24 x 36 mm) that's light, responsive and pleasant to handle. Picture quality is excellent in both photo and video modes. Some of Canon's choices are may be questionable (no built-in flash, no swivel screen) but Wi-Fi and GPS bring new possibilities.TechRadar80Canon 6D reviewAll things considered, the Canon EOS 6D is an excellent choice for the enthusiast and club photographer looking for a full-frame DSLR. These users will find that they have just about everything they need, and a bit more besides.Expert Reviews80Canon EOS 6D reviewFlawless image quality at a tantalising price, but the basic autofocus won't suit everyone.MSN UK100Canon EOS 6D camera reviewYou’ll get top images from the Canon EOS 6D, of that there is no question, while you’ll also make a huge saving compared to the hugely popular Canon 5D Mark III if that’s still firmly beyond your means. It ticks all the boxes on the design, build and user-friendliness fronts too.TrustedReviews80Canon EOS 6D reviewWhile some compromises have inevitably been made – most notably in respect of the autofocus system – in order to keep the overall cost down, the 6D remains a very competent camera in its own right.Photography Blog90Canon EOS 6D ReviewOn paper the new Canon EOS 6D seems rather poorly specified compared to its main rival, the Nikon D600, and its big brother, the 5D Mark III, but in reality it proves to be a very capable DSLR that delivers outstanding pictures in both good and bad light.

We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90September 25, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I upgraded from a T1i and decided to charge for my pictures. Wow, full-frame is all that it is cracked up to be. I REALLY need more AF points now that I use them all the time. In the future I am looking at getting a second backup camera and I will definitely be getting another one of these.Engadget Reader90May 1, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader100March 31, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Bought this to step up from the aps-c to full frame. Having looked at the differences, I decided the 5DIII not worth the extra money (which paid for more batteries and SD cards). As I auto focus using the centre point only, the 61 points on the 5DIII are best left to the likes of jobbing sports photographers. One MAJOR disadvantage of the 5DIII for me is the lack of interchangeable focus screens. I've swapped mine out for an Eg-S screen which aids manual focusing with fast prime lenses - I zone focus with my manual Voigtlander 40mm f2 all the time and the screen really helps!One reason (amongst many) for the jump to full frame was to take advantage of wide angle lenses. My 24mm lens now looks right. The biggest difference I noticed was how well this camera performs indoors and in less-than ideal lighting conditions!As for video, which I use in my day job, the quality is very good. Lots of people complain about moirÃ© compared to the 5D III which is a bit unfair as most cameras at this level suffer from moirÃ©. Also the 5D III has an anti-aliasing filter which makes the video a bit soft. I've used a 5D III for filming and find the softness a bigger issue for me as I rarely encounter moirÃ© with my 6D.Engadget Reader90February 15, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader100June 13, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I upgraded from a Canon T1i and I'm not a professional photographer. For my use, this camera is stunning. Images are clear, photos shoot quickly, and the colors are rich. The camera feels solid, there are numerous settings to tweak, and the software is fast. I like this camera, and have no complaints. But since I'm no pro, I encourage you to read a good knowledgeable reviewer's word over mine (like dpreview). If you're like me and only have experience is with a beginners DSLR, I can with confidence say that this upgrade is worth it.The most noticeable difference (between my old camera) is the 6D's ability to shoot in low light conditions. It's... it's just great. Just great. (I need a better word.) I can go outside at midnight, with nothing but the moon and a street lamp, and capture surprisingly great photos without a flash. Midnight! Based on what I read, this is something the new 6D (and 5D Mark III) excels at. Again, I encourage you to read the professional reviews for more technical details about the special ISO settings this camera can hit, what makes it a lesser camera than the 5D Mark III, and why a full frame sensor is better than a smaller one. I also incourage you to get this camera, it's... it's just great.Engadget Reader90March 31, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Stellar image quality out of this camera so far. Getting useable images at ISO 6400 and beyond with little to no noise. The iOS connectivity for remote shooting is fantastic, this is going to be a boon for a lot of folks who do studio or rely on remote camera work. Overall this is everything you've come to expect from a Canon, with a few bells and whistles thrown in. One small feature I like is the ability to assign a different function to the DOF preview button. I personally have it set to turn on AI-Servo tracking for auto-focus, useful for tracking moving subjects.For about half of the price of a 5D Mark III I'd say this is definitely a solid choice for anyone wanting a new body with great low-light quality in a full frame sensor. It's quick, quiet and easy to handle.Engadget Reader90March 9, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader100February 3, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The 6D is simply a great value in the Canon DSLR lineup. If you are interested in a full-frame camera and you're not primarily a sports photographer, the 6D is an excellent choice. Image quality is unsurpassed in the Canon DSLR range and the light weight and small size are an advantage compared to the 5D Mark III. Feature-wise, there is a trade-off between the 5D3's additional AF points and RAW-format HDR vs the 6D's WiFi & GPS functions. For $1500 less, this is a good trade-off.Engadget Reader90January 4, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90December 21, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Love the new built-in GPS, Wi-Fi and mobile app. Their app needs to be optimized for extremely high-res tablets like the Nexus 10. Pricey, compared to the EOS line, but a good value compared to the 5D, MK III.
