Canon EOS 6D Digital SLR Camera  With Full Frame Image Sensor | Officially Unveiled

As expected by industry insiders, Canon unveiled the new EOS 6D today at the Photokina trade show, by far the company’s smallest and lightest digital SLR camera to have a full-frame image sensor. Created to be an entry-level piece of equipment for the growing “prosumer” market, where there is a need for features on a full-frame DSLR camera yet without the bulk and weight, Canon outfitted the EOS 6D with a newly designed 20.2 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, but all within a form factor no bigger than its EOS 60D camera. Together with the DIGIC 5+ image processor, the new camera will have an ISO range of 100-25,600, extendable to 50-102,400. Low light shooting conditions being the biggest challenge for photographers of any skill level, EOS 6D’s new 11-point AF system provides the image quality, even down to EV-3, the equivalent of moonlight. Two other “firsts” for the Canon EOS camera system would be the GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity on the EOS 6D. Now you can geotag your video/images or share them among friends in real time.

To retail for around US$ 2,099.00, the Canon EOS 6D is now available for pre-order at Canon retailers worldwide.
