Canon finally took the wraps off the long-awaited EOS 6D, which is the latest full frame DSLR in Canon’s EOS lineup. The 6D gets Canon’s lowest retail pricepoint for a full frame shooter at $2099, which just happens to be the same price of the new Nikon D600.
The Canon 6D features a new 20.2MP CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5+ processor. Additionally, the Canon 6D sports an 11-point AF system, a 3-inch LCD and the ability to capture HD movies at 1080p in 24p/30p. The 6D features a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600 (or ISO 50-102400 with expansion).
The Canon 6D eschews the CF format for memory – opting for SDXC cards instead (another first for a full frame Canon DSLR). Additionally, the 6D offers built-in GPS with image tagging and tracking modes available.
The Canon 6D should be available in December 2012 for $2099. It is also available as a kit with the solid EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens for $2899. Check availability here at B&H Photo.

Detailed specs for the 20MP Canon 6D full frame DSLR have leaked. Note that these specs provide for a 1/8000s max shutter speed, which is different from prior specs rumors that referenced 1/4000s max shutter speed.
The camera should be announced in the next few hours with a retail price of $2099, so we should know for certain in a little while.

New rumors suggest we might see a Canon EOS 6D announced soon as an affordable full frame DSLR. [click to continue…]
The lastest rumors of Canon’s lower-priced full frame DSLR suggests a Canon EOS 6D badge and an October unveiling date. Additional rumors emphasize that the focus is on making the full frame camera not only more affordable but also a smaller overall package.
Previous rumors suggested this camera would essentially work out to be a full frame version of the Canon 7D with a 22MP CMOS sensor and a sub-$2000 price point.
Canon 6D Rumored Specs
- 7D style AF system (19 pt) and VF LCD
- 7D metering
- Single Digic 5+
- 3.9 fps
- 3 inch LCD
- 51200 max ISO
- sub – $2000 price point at introduction
All of these rumors appear to be leading up to yet another massive throwdown between Canon’s budget full frame shooter and the Nikon D600. Expect more coverage on the Canon 6D (or whatever it ends up being named) as we creep up on Photokina 2012 and PhotoPlus 2012.
