Johnnie Behiri shot the below video with a preproduction Canon 6D, which should start shipping in the next week or so. There is no color correction applied to this footage and audio was recorded directly to the camera.

Behiri’s initial conclusion is that “there is simply no substitute for the full frame sensor ‘look.'” That said, the moire problem is pretty bad in this short. I really thought Canon was on to something with removing moire as a serious issue from its HDSLRs given the recent improvements with the 1D X and 5D Mark III. Hopefully, this problem will be improved in the production version of the 6D.
Behiri highlights the 6D’s pros and cons as follows:
- Full frame sensor
- Clean high ISO in video mode (1250 is very mush usable).
- Manual audio adjusting
- Severe moire
- Soft image
- No headphone socket
- No audio through HDMI while recording (for monitoring audio on new EVF’s)
- No clean HDMI output
- Format: 1080/25 All-I
- Video shot with available light. Litepanels 1×1 was used for the interview only
- Audio was recorded directly to the camera. No external audio recorder was used.
- ISO settings 640-1250
- Picture profile: Netural 0,-4,-1, 0
- 30% sharpening was added in post (Adobe Premiere CS6)
- No CC was applied
