Canon announces new full-frame 6D


It seems that Canon is once again going on the full-frame route. After the 5D Mark III, a new DSLR was released and we are talking about the Canon EOS 6D camera. The camera was announced four days after Nikon had announced the new full-frame D600. This device is considered to be the competitor to the said device and as expected, the EOS 6D was priced similarly with the D600 as well.

This full-frame camera offers a built-in Wi-Fi capability, a 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and as compared with the 5D Mark III, the 6D is roughly 20 percent lighter as well. However, as far as burst shooting is concerned, you might be a bit disappointed to know that it has only a 4.5 fps still. Nevertheless, as far as low lighting is concerned, you can push this camera up to ISO 102,400. Videographers can also shoot 1080p at a rate of 30fps maximum as well.

The best thing about this camera is of course, its weight. It is lighter as compared with the 5D Mark III as well as the 7D that it is expected to replace. The price tag for it is around $2,100 which is quite the same with Nikon’s latest offering as well.
