The lightest, smallest and cheapest of all of Canon’s EOS line, the 6D has been revealed by the company recently and comes packed with built-in Wi-Fi and GPS capabilities for the first time. The full-frame DSLR only costs around $2,250, which is Canon's least expensive to date geared for the serious photography enthusiasts who are after value.
 
The EOS6 is only 770g and similar in size with the 60D. Basking in the glory of Canon’s 25 years of EOS innovation, the new lightweight EOS 6D sports a newly-designed 20.2-megapixel full-frame sensor, powered by DIGIC 5+ processor, which is similar with what the 5D Mark III features. Given its ISO range of 100 to 25,600 (that is extendable to 50-102,400), photographers are promised to capture crisp, natural shots even in near darkness easier than what its predecessor models can do.  
 
The EOS 6D’s 11-point autofocus system makes this model standout to give the most sensitive sensor in low light than earlier Canon AF system to date. For low-light shooters, the combination of high ISOs and upgraded autofocus sensitivity should come as an assurance of good quality.
 
The Wi-Fi capability gives users with more feature options, including an EOS Remote app for iOS and Android devices, which then lets users to connect and control the EOS 6D camera remotely from their smartphone. Viewing the photos can also be done via the user’s camera on their phone or tablet.
 
The GPS feature, meanwhile, geotags every photo taken on this camera, which also includes a Coordinated Universal Time stamp, and users can see a ‘photo trail’ map that displays an exact route between all the user’s shots. 
 
The dust and drip-proof body of the EOS 6D is made out of part-magnesium alloy for robust protection, the company claims, and adds that the button layout is designed for easy control. The back Clear View LCD of the body is 3-inch in size that features anti-glare design and 1.04-million-dot-resolution. 
 
The camera’s optical viewfinder offers 97% coverage and can manage to shoot at a continuous 4.5fps rate and saves files to a single SD card.
 
Video taking allows 1080p video at 24, 25, and 30fps and shoot 720p video at 50 and 60fps.
 
EOS 6D will be available in December in Australia and will also be available bundled with the excellent EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM.
