Our take on the Canon EOS 6D Kit

It's a great time to be shopping for cameras. With so many wonderful large-sensor cameras on the market in the past year, the number of excellent choices for the developing camera enthusiast has never been higher. Canon's EOS 6D is the latest entry in a distinguished line, and it's appropriate that, numerically, it nests between the game-changing EOS 5D and EOS 7D cameras. The '6D holds on to many of the attractive professional features of its predecessors, while adding a few that give it more of a tilt toward the upgrading hobbyist.

We live in legendary times

It's a great time to be shopping for cameras. With so many wonderful large-sensor cameras on the market in the past year, the number of excellent choices for the developing camera enthusiast has never been higher. Canon's EOS 6D is the latest entry in a distinguished line, and it's appropriate that, numerically, it nests between the game-changing EOS 5D and EOS 7D cameras. The '6D holds on to many of the attractive professional features of its predecessors, while adding a few that give it more of a tilt toward the upgrading hobbyist.

Connect with your camera

We'll start with one that's sure to be a hit. The '6D features built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity. That opens a door to some attractive extra features, available with the free Canon EOS Remote app that's coming soon for Android™ and Apple® smartphones and tablets. Things like fast uploading to social networking sites; remote control of aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focus, and shutter release; remote review/live view of images on your smartphone or tablet. And full DLNA compatibility means easy sharing of images with compatible products, like many of today's HDTVs. Easy remote options mean it's never been easier to put yourself in the picture.

The Canon EOS 6D features a similar elegant ergonomic design to its predecessors and cousins

Geography whiz

The '6D also features on-board GPS functionality, so that your images can be tagged with detailed location and UTC time stamps. Not only will you know where and when every image was gathered, but you'll have the ability to search and organize your photo library with the aid of this information. It's a huge time-saver when it comes to finding that elusive picture you know you snagged on your day trip to the Irish coast.

Utility player

This kit version of the Canon EOS 6D includes the well-regarded Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens. You'll be set to react to almost any photographic opportunity that comes your way, as this lens zooms from wide-angle architectural cityscapes to intimate candids of awestruck cityscape admirers. Though there are many fine lenses available for the '6D, we're willing to bet this one will become one of your go-to favorites.

Film school companion

The EOS 6D has the performance you'd expect from a fine full-frame camera as well. Video shooting will be a joy, with features digital filmmakers demand. Captured video is stored as low-compression h.264 MOV files. There's an external stereo microphone input, with adjustable input levels. And your footage and pictures will be stored on convenient and readily available SD/SDHC/SDXC cards. Plus, your video will feature the unique, lush look that you can only get from a full-frame sensor.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome camera. Low light is outstanding and you can crop easily crop 60 +%. The only possible downsize is the weight. I don't see this as a carry camera.

Pros: Image quality - sharpness, detail, crop factor

Cons: Weight.

Great dlsr camera

Arnold Q from California on 8/7/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this canon mainly to be used for short film and so far it's been great.

Pros: Full frame is great

Canon 6D - great camera

Nate from Maine on 12/26/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After debating between the 7D vs. 6D (with my budget), I went with the 6D and have had no regrets. I was slightly worried about the lower fps and less focus points, but I'm certainly glad I went with the full frame and better performer in lower light. I love the wi-fi and gps functions on it though it took me a little bit to figure out the wi-fi and web services setup. Next to save for, a telephoto zoom lens...

Pros: High end lens that comes with it. Picture quality. Many functions and options that come with the camera.

Cons: Less focus points Slower fps

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I like the size of the camera and the 24-105L lens. With these I can do 90% of my photography. Price was reasonable for full size sensor camera. Camera feels great in my hands and is smooth operating. Have had good service with Canon in past.

Pros: Great color. Smooth operating. Handles well. Reasonable price.

Cons: Maybe more cross sensors but that has not been a problem for me and kind of shooting I do.

Worth the cost to upgrade to FF

Robert J from Upstate NY on 10/4/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As a APS-C shooter for many years (my first digital SLR was a Nikon crop-sensor unit, I then switched to the Canon T3i, then upgraded to Canon EOS 70D) and I had been fairly happy with the results I was getting. Over the past year however, I have gotten more serious about photography and have spent a great deal of time learning and using the features in the "Creative Zone" modes on the Canon EOS cameras. This summer, I began to wonder if going to Full-Frame format might be a good next step in my development (no pun intended) as a photographer. I was surprised at the difference in the image quality over the 70D. Now, the 70D was a great camera with great image quality and low light sensitivity. But side by side comparisons of the photos from the 6D and the 70D clearly show that the 6D is superior in sharpness of foreground, color accuracy and creaminess of background. I have gotten so many more "keepers" with the 6D than I have from any previous camera I conclude it's the camera and not the photographer in my case. Again, the APS-C cameras I have used have been great. The 70D was excellent (especially for video). But, for me, the actual experience with Full-Frame completely lives up to the hype. The lens in the 6D kit lens is of high quality and a great range of focal lengths (24mm-105mm). Given that the lens sells for around $1,000 by itself, the cost of the kit seems reasonable given the quality of images it produces. I highly recommend the Canon EOS 6D.

Pros: Superb Image Quality Excellent Color Reproduction Excellent Quality Lens Included Superior Low-Light Performance Excellent Center-point cross-type autofocus point High-Quality Build

Cons: No built-in flash or radio to trigger off-camera flash units No touch-screen (as on lower cost cameras such as the T5i, SL1, 70D, etc.)

Great camera and a good deal!

JunR from VA on 8/28/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Coming from an APS-C to full frame digital SLR is indeed great. I love this camera with its cool feature - WIFi and GPS - I was very excited when I got this camera - the kit lens works great. This is an awesome upgrade.

Pros: GPS, WiFi, good solid lens for the price.

Cons: Found non

Great full frame at a reasonable price

Jimmy D from Charlottesville, Va on 4/27/2014

I was only going to give this camera 4 stars for coolnes but, I remembered that it dies have WiFi. Focusing in very low light could be a little better. I would like to see it have the dual pixel focusing that my 70d has. This is my first full frame DSLR and I should have made that jump a long time ago. The frame size makes such a difference. The high ISO performance is superb. I don't hesitate to use 20000 if needed. The 24-105mm is my second one. This is one awesome lens if you only want to take one lens. It is the most commonly used lens in my bag. The image stabilization get you about three or four extra stops.

Pros: High ISO performance, value, WiFi, lens in kit

Cons: Low light focusing.

Recording Features

Package Overview: The Canon EOS 6D digital SLR kit includes the camera body, and the Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens, along with a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery, battery charger, a USB cable and an A/V cable. The camera has a standard Canon EF mount, and will accept EF lenses. (Because of the full-sized image sensor, EF-S lenses are not recommended. The camera is not compatible with EF-M lenses.)

Clear View LCD Monitor: The EOS 6D features a 3.0" Clear View TFT color LCD monitor with approximately 1,040,000 dots which allows you to view and shoot real-time images. The LCD monitor offers 100% viewing coverage and 7 brightness levels to choose from. In Live View, grid lines can be displayed in 9 sections (3x3), 24 sections (6x4), or 9 sections with diagonals, as well as an electronic level. The Live View function enables you to shoot your subjects while viewing them on the LCD monitor.

Viewfinder: In addition to the 3.0" LCD monitor, the Canon EOS 6D uses an eye-level SLR with fixed pentaprism viewfinder with 0.71x magnification for approximately 97% vertical and horizontal coverage. It has a built-in diopter to allow you to adjust the viewfinder to your personal eyesight.

20.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor: The EOS 6D features a huge, full-frame sensor. The 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor is 35.8 x 23.9mm, and delivers images of up to 5472 x 3861 pixels. And since it is full-frame, all lenses will deliver the angle of view they would on a 35mm camera without a conversion factor. This comes in handy especially when shooting with wide-angle lenses. For the flexibility to shoot in even the most dimly lit situations, the EOS 6D offers very wide ISO sensitivity, ranging from 100-25600 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 51200 and H2: 102400). Thanks to improved noise reduction technologies, images shot even at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth.

DIGIC 5+ Image Processor: The EOS 6D uses Canon's DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, with two 4-channel A/D converter front-end processing circuits. It can deliver speeds of up to 4.5 fps with improved noise reduction at higher ISOs.

Sensor Cleaning System: Canon's Integrated Cleaning system includes a self-cleaning sensor unit and software that can remove the effects of dust on the image sensor. The Self Cleaning Sensor, attached to the image sensor's front layer (low-pass filter) can shake off dust automatically when the camera is powered on or off. In case visible dust remains on your images, you can append the Dust Delete Data to the images to erase the dust spots later using the provided Digital Photo Professional software.

Note: Dust which could not be removed by the automatic sensor cleaning can be removed manually with an optional blower.

Recording Media: The EOS 6D can record still images and movies on SD cards (SD, SDHC, or SDXC). The camera is also compatible with the Ultra High-Speed (UHS-I) SDHC and SDXC cards. No recording media is supplied with the camera.

Image Recording Format: The camera records still images in JPEG and RAW (14-bit) formats. Simultaneous RAW + JPEG recording is also possible. The camera's image sensor has an aspect ratio of 3:2. The aspect ratio can also be set to 4:3, 16:9, or 1:1, and the area surrounding the Live View image is masked in black for those settings. JPEG images will be saved with the set aspect ratio, while RAW images will always be saved in 3:2. Movies can be recorded in the MOV format (Video: H.264, Audio: Linear PCM). There are two compression methods to choose from: IPB and ALL-I. The camera offers a 64-step manual volume control for recording movie audio. Available image sizes include:

Drive Modes: The Canon EOS 6D offers the following Drive modes:

  • Single Shooting: When you press the shutter button completely, only one shot will be taken.
  • Continuous Shooting: While you press the shutter button completely, multiple shots will be taken continuously at approximately 4.3 shots per second for as long as you hold the button. Maximum burst is approximately 73 shots for JPEG Large/Fine, 14 shots for RAW, and 7 shots for RAW + JPEG Large/Fine.
  • Silent Shooting: Silent Shooting is quieter than normal shooting. You can choose Silent Single shooting and Silent Continuous shooting with a maximum of approximately 3 shots per second.
  • Self-Timer/Remote Control: The camera will record an image 2 or 10 seconds after pressing the shutter button on the camera. Using the optional RC-6 Remote Controller, you can operate the camera from up to approximately 16.4 feet. With the RC-6, you can either shoot immediately or use a 2-second delay.

11-Point Autofocus System: The EOS 6D features a newly-designed 11-point auto focusing (AF) system. It has a new centered cross-type AF point with EV-3 sensitivity from improved performance and focus in low light. In addition, there are two vertical-line sensitive focusing points above and below the center focusing point, and four horizontal-line sensitive focusing points on each side of the center.

AF Operation: The camera lets you select one of three AF Operation characteristics to let you seize every photo opportunity with fast, accurate focus:

  • One-Shot: suited for still subjects, the camera focuses only once.
  • AI Servo: for moving subjects when the focusing distance keeps changing. The subject will be focused continuously while the shutter button is pressed halfway.
  • AI Focus: switches from One-Shot AF to AI Servo AF automatically if the subject starts moving.

Shooting Modes: The EOS 6D's top-mounted Mode Dial offers the following shooting modes:

  • Fully Automatic (Scene Intelligent Auto): The camera analyses the scene and sets the optimum settings automatically.
  • Creative Auto: In this mode, you can easily change the depth of field and drive mode. You can also choose the ambience you want to convey in your images.
  • Special Scene: You can choose a shooting mode that suits the scene, and the camera sets the optimum settings automatically. Scene modes include Portrait, Landscape, Close-up, Sports, Night Portrait, Handheld Night Scene, and HDR Backlight Control.
  • Program AE: The camera automatically sets the shutter speed and aperture value to suit the scene's brightness.
  • Shutter-Priority AE (Tv): In this mode, you set the shutter speed and the camera automatically sets the aperture value to suit the brightness of the subject. A slow shutter speed can create a blurred effect, while a fast shutter speed can freeze action.
  • Aperture-priority AE (Av): In this mode, you set the desired aperture value and the camera sets the shutter speed automatically to suit the subject brightness. A low aperture number can create a blurred background (narrow depth of field), while a high aperture number can create a sharp foreground and background (wide depth of field).
  • Manual Exposure: In this mode, you set both the shutter speed and aperture value as desired.
  • Bulb: When Bulb is set, the shutter stays open as long as you hold down the shutter button completely, and closes when you let go of the shutter button. Bulb exposures are for night scenes, fireworks, the night sky, and other subjects requiring long exposures. It is recommended that you use a tripod and a Remote Switch, such as the RS-80N3, for bulb exposures.
  • Custom Shooting Modes: You can register the shooting mode, AF mode, menu settings, etc. to the two Custom Shooting Mode positions (C1, C2) on the Mode Dial.

iFCL Metering: The EOS 6D features Canon's multi-layer 63-zone iFCL (intelligent Focus Color Luminance) Metering System that integrates the camera's AF system into its readings. By taking into account the color and luminosity surrounding the chosen AF points, this new system delivers an entirely new level of accuracy, especially in situations where the light changes quickly.

Metering Modes: You can select from the following metering modes:

  • Evaluative Metering: The camera's standard metering mode suited for most subjects even under backlit conditions, after detecting the main subject's position, brightness, background, front and back lighting conditions, etc, the camera sets the proper exposure.
  • Partial Metering: Effective when the background is much brighter than the subject due to backlighting, etc, uses approximately 8% of the frame at the center.
  • Spot Metering: For metering a specific part of the subject, uses approximately 3.5% of the frame at the center.
  • Center-weighted Average Metering: Metering is weighted at the center and then averaged for the entire scene.

ISO Speed: The camera's ISO speed can be set within a range, depending upon the shooting mode:

  • Basic Zone Modes: ISO 100 - 12800 set automatically
  • Landscape: ISO 100-1600 set automatically
  • Handheld Night Scene: ISO 100-25600 set automatically
  • P, Tv, Av, M, B: Auto ISO, ISO 100-25600 (in 1/3 or whole stop increments), ISO Expansion to L (equivalent to ISO 50), H1 (ISO 51200), and H2 (ISO 102400)

Picture Style: By selecting a Picture Style, you can achieve various effects matching your photographic expression or the subject. You can also adjust the Sharpness, Contrast, Saturation and Color tone of each Picture Style. Picture Style selections include:

  • Auto: Color tone is adjusted automatically to suit the scene. The image will look vivid, especially for blue skies, greenery, and sunsets in nature, outdoor, and sunset scenes.
  • Standard: A general-purpose Picture Style to suit most scenes. The image looks vivid, sharp, and crisp.
  • Portrait: Suited for close-up portraits, this Picture Style is for nice skin tones, making the image look softer. You can change the color tone to adjust the skin tone.
  • Landscape: For vivid blues and greens, very sharp and crisp images.
  • Neutral: For natural colors and subdued images, no sharpness applied.
  • Faithful: When the subject is photographed under a color temperature of 5200 K, the color is adjusted to match the subject's color, no sharpness applied. (recommended for users who prefer to process images on their PC)
  • Monochrome: Creates black and white images; you can adjust the filter effect of the monochrome setting to Black&White, Yellow, Orange, Red, or Green.
  • User Defined 1-3: You can register your own Picture Style settings for Portrait and Landscape modes.

High Dynamic Range (HDR): You can take artistic photos having a high dynamic range and preserving detail in highlight and shadow areas. HDR shooting is effective for landscape and still-life photos. With HDR shooting, three images of different exposures are captured for each shot, then merged together automatically.

Multiple Exposures: You can shoot two to nine exposures to be merged into one image. If you shoot multiple-exposure images with Live View shooting, you can see how the single exposures merge while shooting.

White Balance: White Balance is for making the white areas look white. You can choose from the following white balance settings: Auto, Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Tungsten Light, White Fluorescent Light, Flash Use, Custom, and Color Temperature.

EX-series Speedlite Compatible: The EOS 6D features the acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system. With any of the flashes in the EX-series Speedlite line, E-TTL II provides reliable flash output whether shooting fill-in flash pictures in sunlight, or using flash in total darkness.

Note: The camera does not have a built-in flash.

Built-in Wi-Fi: The EOS 6D has built-in Wi-Fi capability that let you connect wirelessly with another device on the same network up to 98.4' away. The camera is compliant with IEEE 802.11b/g/n standards. The camera's wireless LAN functions let you perform a range of tasks wirelessly, including the following:

  • Transfer images between cameras
  • Connect to a smartphone to view images or control the camera
  • Print images using a Wi-Fi printer
  • Operate the camera remotely using EOS Utility on a PC
  • Send images to a Web service, such as Canon Image Gateway
  • View images using a media player

Built-in GPS: The camera has built-in GPS functionality, which can record longitude, latitude, and altitude data from overhead satellites for imprinting into your photos. Its logging function can track movement at set intervals, while the GPS data can set your camera's clock to the precise local time. This data lets you see on a map the exact route you traveled, and the exact location and time you took each picture or movie.

The lens features a built-in Image Stabilizer (IS), as well as an Ultrasonic Motor (USM). The lens is constructed of 18 lens elements in 13 groups for truly exceptional imaging capability.

Image Stabilizer (IS): The built-in Image Stabilizer can be used in the AF (autofocus) or MF (manual focus) modes. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent effect of a shutter speed three stops faster. The 2-position switch located on the barrel of the lens allows you to turn the image stabilizer on and off.
