Developed for users wishing to effortlessly enjoy the high image quality afforded by a 35 mm full-frame camera, the Canon EOS 6D features a lightweight, compact body design, making it ideally suited as the next-step model for entry-level SLR camera users or as a secondary camera for advanced-amateur enthusiasts.
Incorporating a newly developed approximately 20.2-megapixel 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor, the Canon EOS 6D delivers the impressive background image blur unique to full-frame cameras while also realizing a maximum continuous shooting speed of approximately 4.5 images per second. By combining the newly developed CMOS image sensor with the high-performance DIGIC 5+ image processor, the camera realizes a wide dynamic range with exceptional color reproduction and rich gradation. Furthermore, the 6D offers a maximum ISO setting that has been expanded to 25600,*1 which can be extended to 102400, making possible high-quality image results with reduced noise even in low-light environments.
Featuring a body that weighs approximately 680 g, making it the world’s lightest*2 35 mm full-frame digital SLR camera, the EOS 6D enables effortless handheld shooting and contributes to the expansion of imaging possibilities. By reducing the size of the shutter unit, mirror motor drive and CMOS sensor package, the model is the same approximate size and weight as the EOS 60D (released in September 2010), which employs an APS-C sensor.
The Canon EOS 6D’s built-in wireless LAN function*3 allows the capture, playback and sharing of still images and video to be performed wirelessly. Still image and video data can be sent to devices that support a Wi-Fi connection, such as smartphones, PCs and Canon-brand cameras*4 and printers,*5 as well as DLNA-compatible televisions*6 and the online photo service Canon iMAGE GATEWAY*7. The EOS Remote*8 application for smartphones supporting Wi-Fi enables the 6D to be operated remotely, allowing users to confirm the camera’s Live View display and capture still images from a smartphone. Furthermore, still images (JPEG) saved in the camera’s memory card can be transferred to a smartphone.
