EOS 6D: Canon's entry-level full-frame SLR camera
Japanese company Canon introduced a new full-frame SLR camera that can compete in price with mid-range SLRs with a stripped-down sensor. However, despite the budget orientation of the new product, it is able to demonstrate a very good quality of images. The model, called Canon EOS 6D, is made in the traditional style – a black compact body with standard controls, so you won't have to get used to it for long.

It is noteworthy that the camera received support for the built-in Wi-Fi module for wireless data transmission, as well as a GPS navigation chip. The resolution of the CMOS sensor is 20.2 MP, and the range of ISO values will be in the range from 100 to 25600 units, although it can be expanded to values from 50 to 102400 units. For fast data processing, there is a DIGIC 5+ processor that supports working with 14-bit RAW files. For high-quality focusing, a 63-zone two-layer iFCL evaluation sensor and an 11-point focusing system are installed, inside which a central cross-shaped point is placed. The maximum "rate" of the camera is 4.5 frames per second. Among other things, there is the possibility of working in an extended range of HDR and a lot of exposure settings.
Video recording will be possible in resolutions up to FullHD 1080p at a speed of 30 frames per second or 720p at a speed of up to 60 frames per second. The maximum length of one file is 30 minutes. Also, it is possible to connect an external microphone for better sound fixation. The lens is attached to the “carcass” through the Canon EF mount without the crop factor. On the back of the case is a 3-inch screen with a resolution of 1.04 megapixels, wide viewing angles and the ability to display images in Live View. As for the optical viewfinder, its frame coverage will reach a value of 97%.
The captured material can be saved on SD / SDHC / SDXC memory cards or downloaded directly to the Canon “cloud” or any other wireless devices. In addition, special applications for smartphones based on Android and iOS will allow you to work directly with social services. The GPS chip, in turn, will record data on the place where the picture was taken in EXIF photos and videos.
Canon EOS 6D will be available in December this year at a suggested retail price of $ 2,100 for the option without a lens or $ 2,900 for the version with F4L, 24-105 mm IS.
