The Canon 6D is a 20MP full frame camera that steps up in performance from the 5D Mark II, but still offers a lower entry price than what the 5D Mark II did at its debut. For now, Canon’s full frame line-up will consist of (in order of sophistication and price) the 5D Mark II, 6D and 5D Mark III.
The 6D should offer improved dynamic range and low-light noise control thanks to larger pixels and improved processing over the 5D Mark II. Additionally, the 6D steps up to 4.5 fps frame rate over the 5D Mark II at 3.9 fps. Another kudos goes to the locking mode dial on the 6D – a small, but great, addition. [click to continue…]
Per Canon USA, the Canon EOS M will be shipping this week and should have availability across US retailers. Keep an eye on it here at B&H Photo.
Canon just announced a powerful firmware update for the 5D Mark III. The new firmware, due April 2013, will provide uncompressed HDMI output for 4:2:2 8-bit video capture via an external recorder.
Additionally, the 5D Mark III will gain the ability to autofocus at f/8 when equipped with Canon teleconverters (akin to the recent firmware update of the Canon 1D X).
A bit ironic that Canon announced this right after the new Magic Lantern firmware update that unlocks HDMI-out for the 5D Mark III, no?
