SHARE

Canon has just introduced its smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR aimed primarily at photography enthusiasts—the Canon EOS 6D. The camera combines a 20.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, enabling you to capture top-notch photos.

According to Canon, the EOS 6D wields the features and qualities of the EOS 5D Mark II, but is priced at a rate that won’t leave as huge a dent in your pocket as the 5D. The camera also has built-in WiFi and GPS capabilities.

The camera features several creative image capture modes and has an HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode for capturing a scene at three different exposure levels and combining them to ensure that the significant details of your image are visible. The EOS 6D also has a Multiple Exposure mode which lets users combine up to nine images into a single composite image without having to post-process them on your computer. It features four different compositing methods—Additive, Average, Bright and Dark.

The EOS 6D will also be a treat for advanced amateur videographers as it can take 1080p Full HD videos at 30, 24 and 25 frames per second (fps), and 720p videos at 60 and 50 fps.

The body-only configuration will be sold in the US at a suggested retail price of USD $2,099, which is roughly PHP 87,558.36. Canon states that the EOS 6D will be offered in a kit version paired with an EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM zoom lens. This kit will have an estimated price of USD $2,899 or roughly PHP 120,929.81.
