Suck it Nikon..best entry level full frame DSLR!
Posted by: Matador1949 from: on
I'd heard someone once compare DSLR's to cars in that you can't choose one over the other based on specs alone. I ventured out to purchase either a Nikon D600 or my 6D. On paper the D600 seemed to be the obvious choice. But you have to test both and feel them in your hands and actually play with them to understand why I choose the 6D instead. The low light performance is amazing even besting the 5D Mark III! The Focus Points, although their are very few of them, are very reliable and more importantly accurate in any lighting situation. While the D600 does have a built in light assist light the 6D holds more then it's own without one. Everything from the Menu layout and built quality was more to my liking. Having a camera that can hold its own with the mighty 5D Mark III and costing considerably less is a huge plus. The icing on the cake comes in way of the built in Wifi connecting any smart phone or tablet. Works beautifully. Lighter, better grip..I can go on and on. You will not be disappointed with a well rounded, Dust/ Oil FREE, beast of a camera like the Canon 6D!

Excellent Pictures Right Out of the Box
Posted by: Virginia from: on
If you chose to treat this camera like an expensive point and shoot, you would still be getting pictures that are amazing right out of the camera. But treating it as such would be a great disservice to yourself because once you start testing out the various manual modes, you can really see a difference in the quality of pictures. There are multiple adjustments you can make (exposure level, white balance, portrait vs landscape) giving you a true fluidity in the types of pictures you can take. Some of these are readily visible in the viewfinder, but there is an extensive list of choices via the menu you can pull up on the live screen. The menu is incredibly similar to the menu choices on my 11+ year old Canon point and shoot so if you're already used to Canon, there isn't as great a learning curve. However, there are so many functions and options that it may still take a while to remember where you can find something again. Overall, though, there is a lot of growing room for photographers with this camera.
What made the camera even more exciting for me is the high quality lens that came with it. It is one of the luxury level lens. Heavier (a bit difficult to get used to that around your neck, newbies!), but I have been able to take great macro photos of bees, clouds in the distance, and people-pleasing portraits in between. If you are a beginner photographer, you can probably grow for quite a while with this lens before you even have to worry about purchasing more.
All in all, while it is an expensive purchase, it's incredibly serviceable, durable, high quality, and excellent for growing your technique!

Excellent Pro Body with Best In Class Low Light
Posted by: EdMark from: on
This is not a gateway camera or a beginners pro or a prosumer camera... It has been called that. It is basically a 5D Mark II with even better low light capability launched as the 6D with an upgraded sensor with WiFi and GPS value adds. It is easy to use and the AF system isn't simplistic - it is an elegantly simple system that a pro can appreciate and that an amateur can easily master, and it lends to great results. Not a pro camera for sports, but definitely one for still life (or at least more still than sports) of all kinds. Highly recommended especially when you consider that you can get a 6D and a 7D Mark II for as much as a 5D Mark III and have way more versatility. Don't hesitate - get it.

Beast of a Full Frame!!
Posted by: ST36L7H1 from: on
Purchased at my local Best Buy for the sale price of 1999.99 with 2 year warranty.
Coming from a Canon 60D which is a crop sensor, then on to this 6D full frame sensor, the image quality is night and day!
Build quality is sturdy and strong!
It feels great in hand and doesn't at all feel like a toy.
The kit lens is a marvelous 24-105mm L quality lens, which was a big selling point and a L glass lens which has a reasonable amount of zoom.
I will definitely be getting the Canon 50mm f1.2 L lens soon enough, but this kit lens does wonders! Maybe not the best in low light performance but it is sharp as a ninja sword, picture quality is unreal clear and again sharp!
Can't wait to get the Canon 50mm f1.2 L lens and possibly the Rokinon 14mm f2.8 wide angle!
- Full Moon over Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii. Photo settings: 1/2 a second at f4, 1600 ISO with noise reduction turned off.
- Two images of the Canon 6D and kit lens inside a Canon 300DG bag and Lowepro Format 160 bag, a generic bubble leveler connected on top the camera on the hot shoe.

Love This Camera!
Posted by: JamesB63 from: Baltimore, MD on
Took this camera out to a local flower garden and used it taking wide angle to macro photos. The first thing I noticed was how bright the viewfinder was compared to the Canon 50D I had been using. Of course L series glass probably helped too. Being a tall person I've got big hands, but he camera felt good in my hands, and it was easy to manipulate the controls. I've read other reviews where people complain about the lack of a joystick, but I found the multi-controller easy to use when selecting focusing points. Since I was taking photos of stationary objects the autofocus worked quickly and accurately. A review of the photos in Adobe Lightroom showed a much better quality from the 6D vs the 50D which is somewhat to be expected because the technology difference. Image noise was nonexistent. I took a shot of someone at ISO 12800, and was able to get a nice image with noise reduction software. All in all a great camera.

6D gets the job done!
Posted by: JMan from: on
The 6D delivers!
Whether you are using this for photography or videography, this will not let you down.
I personally use this for weddings, interviews and my own personal use. My clients rave about the professional quality that the camera is able to deliver. In the right persons hands, the many features on the 6D can really shine.
- many different custom setting options
- amazing battery life along with many different extended battery options on the market for it.
- stunning cinematic feeling for video work.
Cons: (hard to find some really)
- no audio monitoring available. You will not know what it sounds like until after the fact on playback or on the computer. Not a problem though if you're using external microphones already.
- no flip out screen - can be tough at times for shooting. Easily solved though with buying an eyepiece attachment that lets you shoot for above.
All in and all, amazing camera that's worth every cent.

I truly love this camera! I upgraded from a T3i and have nothing but great things to say. The 6D is a very solid camera. I shoot professionally for a lot of reality type programming and freelance music video work, and it has worked way above my expectations. The video quality is identical to 5D Mk III if you ask me. The only difference is the photo aspect which the Mk III is still king.
If you are looking to upgrade from a crop censor to full frame on a budget, the 6D is absolutely the best route to take. I love shooting on a Mk III when I get the chance, but the 6D is pretty darn close to shooting on the same platform. I absolutely love it!

An incredible purchase from Best Buy
Posted by: manit0ba from: Dunedin, FL on
I had been the owner of a Canon T2i (550) for a couple of years, and took thousands of photos with it. The image quality was excellent, and I used several of Canon's best "L" lenses on it which optimized the output. I decided to upgrade to full frame, and thought I would move to a 5D Mark III. However, after considerable research, I learned that you can get the same image quality and most of the features out of a 6D at a fraction of the price. I identified one online at a good price, and stopped in a Best Buy store to handle it in person before I ordered. I told the sales associate there what my plans were, and I was shocked to hear that they have a policy of matching prices even with established online stores! They matched the price, and I bought it from them on the spot!
There is a world of difference between the 6D and the T2i -- not to slight the T2i at all. The 6D is just that much better in so many ways -- image quality, build quality, handling, features, feel, and also pride of ownership. I got it with the 24-105 L lens, and the photos are almost like magic! This prompted me to buy yet another L lens, the 135mm f2. This camera seems to actually CREATE light in low-light situations without flash, and the 24-105 lens is image stabilized so I actually gain a full 4 f-stops to work with. There is a magical quality in the colors and the bokeh this thing produces. I have had expensive Nikons, and the Canon seems to be alone in its ability to generate that "other-worldly" look. The 6D is equal to the best of all of them in this regard. I now feel that my equipment is about the best you can own, and that the only limitation on what I can do with it is my own skill level (which the camera makes appear better than it actually is!).
For people who go beyond the basic point and shoot cameras into more serious SLRs, you know that this is what you are really after -- and all else is a compromise! You live once -- and if you are buying a camera for enjoyment, why not get the one you really want and truly enjoy it!
I will always check Best Buy before I purchase additional items of any type. They surprised me!

A great package
Posted by: gdbrekke from: Portland, OR on
Bought this camera as a backup to and smaller companion for my pro level 1D cameras. It is really a fun camera to use and has such awesome low light image and focusing capabilities that my quibbles with this camera are just that, minor "wish list" annoyances.
While the focus area and points are limited, it does focus really fast and accurately. Follow focus is accurate with moving subjects but with a maximum frame rate of 4.5 fps I'll be sticking with the 1D bodies for action and sports.
I'm using this as a travel and studio camera mainly. It's the camera that now goes with me everywhere. The 24-105mm lens it is plenty versatile to handle almost any shooting situation that comes up.

Love my Canon 6D!
Posted by: IlliniFan from: on
I bought this Canon 6D to replace a Canon Rebel we lost on vacation. I was completely happy with my Rebel, but now that I've taken the step up to the 6D, there's no going back! I cannot believe how great this camera does in low light situations--even without a flash. Get the 28-105 mm L lens--fantastic images! I've taken amazing shots at football, basketball, and marching band events with just the basic settings, because I haven't had a chance to learn all of the features yet. I can only imagine what my photographs will be like once I learn all this camera has to offer!
