My Review - Canon 6D Camera - mikecphoto

The Canon EOS 6D is an amazing camera. It's packed full of useful features and built to take incredible high quality photos.


I have owned the Canon EOS 6D for about 3 months now (at time of writing) and have been more than impressed. This camera provide excellent quality images even at high ISO's so is great for hand held low light photography. Further below you will find some example shots, although most pictures on this website were taken with the 6D if you wanted to see more.

Things I love about the Canon 6D

- Full frame capabilities, gives you more control of depth of field and focal length

- Lightweight at only 755g



Things I wish could be better

- More focus points - I use the custom focus select a lot and need that control

- There's no built in flash

- The viewfinder shows only 97% of what is being captured

- The LCD doesn't swivel

Summary

A fantastic Camera full of features and well built. The luxury of full frame makes all the difference and if you are upgrading from a crop sensor to a full frame you will love the extra space you get from not having the 1.6 crop on the focal length.
