Lightest Full Frame DSLR – Canon EOS 6D announced

Canon EOS 6DCanon announced their latest addition to the range of full frame DSLRs – finally, long awaited EOS 6D.

Canon EOS 6D is also Canon’s smallest full frame camera to date (smallest DSLR).

Just 770 grams makes this the lightest full frame DSLR (as compared to 816g on 5D Mark II and 760 grams on Nikon D600).

EOS 6D uses the same DIGIC 5 processor as 5D Mark III and it’s a 20 megapixel sensor (a bit more than 7D) and 6D has 11 point auto focus.

Here are some of the best new features in EOS 6D:

  • Wireless connectivity – one can transfer files from the camera to a tablet or a smartphone wirelessly. You will also be able to control the camera remotely from a mobile phone using Canon EOS remote application.
  • GPS – EOS 6D has a built-in GPS module for geotagging images.
  • SD card slot (finally!) – one SD card slot, supporting SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards.
  • The camera comes with Silent shutter mode–which debuted in the 5D Mark III, it’s supposed to be very impressive.

Unfortunately, EOS 7D does not have autofocus mode in video recording like 60D and it only has 97% viewfinder coverage (which is weird because my 7D has 100%!).



£1799 (body) or £2519 (with Ef 24-105L lens).
