20.2 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
The EOS 6D features a newly developed Canon Full-Frame 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor for high resolution, perfectly detailed images delivered with incredible speed and performance. With no conversion factor, the EOS 6D's sensor ensures that lenses mounted on the camera will deliver the same angle of view they would on a traditional 35mm camera.
14-bit A/D Conversion
With 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion, the EOS 6D captures and records images with remarkable gradations and detail in subtle tones and colors, resulting in more realistic and detailed images.
ISO 100-25600 and expandable to 102400 in H mode
Thanks to its new DIGIC 5 Image Processor, the EOS 6D features an expanded ISO range of ISO 100-25600 (with expanded sensitivities of L: 50, H1: 51200, H2: 102400) that makes shooting possible in situations previously unthinkable without flash.
Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor
The EOS 6D features Canon's DIGIC 5 Image Processor. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor works with the camera's CMOS sensor to deliver images with incredible detail in more situations, without the need for artificial light sources.
New 11-point AF including a high-precision center cross-type AF point
The EOS 6D has an entirely new 11-point AF system for fast, accurate AF no matter the situation. With its new centered cross-type AF point with EV -3 sensitivity for improved performance and focus in low light, and a newly developed and bright 21mm eye point viewfinder with 97% coverage, the EOS 6D offers impressive performance in both composition and AF.
iFCL Metering with 63-zone dual-layering metering sensor
Canon's multi-layer 63-zone iFCL (intelligent Focus Color Luminance) Metering System integrates the camera's AF system into its readings. By taking into account the color and luminosity surrounding the chosen AF point(s), this system delivers accurate results, especially in situations where the light changes quickly.
Continuous shooting up to 4.5 fps for capturing fast-action
With continuous shooting speed up to 4.5 frames per second, the EOS 6D keeps up with the action. It is designed to capture the shots photographers want when shooting rapidly unfolding scenes.
EOS HD Video with manual exposure control and multiple frame rates
The EOS 6D offers both All-I (UHS-I memory card is required) and IPB compression, supports H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile, and automatically splits files greater than 4GB. It offers the option of timecoding during recording only (Rec Run) or at all times (Free Run), useful for multi-camera shoots. It also features improved sound recording adjustment capabilities as well as a 3.5mm microphone terminal.
Built-in Wi-Fi® transmitter
Allows you to wirelessly transfer your images to social networking sites through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY#, share your images with Wi-Fi® enabled Canon cameras, or upload virtually anywhere on your iOS or Android smartphone* with the free download of the EOS Remote app**.
Record location information (longitude, latitude, elevation and universal coordinated time (UTC)) as EXIF information for geotagging images when shooting.
3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor
The EOS 6D's 3.0" TFT LCD monitor has 1,040,000 dots, anti-reflective construction and features Canon's Clear View technology for a bright, sharp display in any number of shooting situations
Compatibility with SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards, including new Ultra High Speed cards
The EOS 6D uses popular SD, SDHC, SDXC and is even compatible with the newest Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) class memory cards.
