Versions – Canon 6D specs

Canon Eor VG
Canon Eos (N) the (N) version doesn’t have Wifi and GPS functions.

Versions what are the difference? – Canon 6D specs

Seems a version with (N) naked(?) moniker existing without GPS and Wifi, apart from the original version. Wifi support is different by devices and regions as well. Many cameras tagged with Wifi and GPS, but it doesn’t necessarily means what a future owner think about Wifi or GPS. Better to check before buy what the camera really can do in terms of Wifi or GPS. GPS is usually just for geo-tagging the pictures.

Introduction – Canon 6D specs

The Canon 6d is the most popular Canon full frame Dslr today (April 2014) Why? Because of the smaller size, excellent low light performance and lower price than the Canon 5d Mk III. Currently the Canon 6d sells for 1900 dollar(body only), while the Canon 5d Mk III sells for 3400 dollar(body only). This is a significant difference. If you check almost any review site the Canon 6d is a preferred option. Even the low light performance of the Canon 6d is a little better. The biggest difference between the two is the autofocus system, because the Canon 6d only has 9/1 focus point, but the Canon 5d mark III boasts with many focus and cross type points, even double cross-type points in the middle of the frame.

Canon 6D main parameters

Strength: Excellent picture quality even in high sensitivity
Weekness: High price(it depends on perspective compare to 5d Mk III even cheap), only one cross type focus points and 11 focus points total, fixed screen

Canon 6D alternatives

In Canon land there is not really an alternative, which is similar apart from the much more expensive Canon 5d Mk III, or the older Canon 5d MkII. In Nikon land the Nikon d610 is the competing camera.(The Nikon d600 has a defective parts which makes oil on the sensor). On paper the Nikon is better in things like dynamic range, low light ability, but in real world the Canon 6d is an extremely powerful camera. The decision perhaps is more based on lenses and systems. The pictures of this cameras produces are rather different, not in a good or bad way, more of how they look, but a matter of taste what you prefer: Canon looking or Nikon looking images. Sony also has Full frame cameras, and even mirrorless Full frame cameras as well, but it is very hard to compete with Canon or Nikon lens lineup.
