Sheer Processing Power

Canon EOS 6D Wi-Fi capable full-frame DSLR Camera

Enthusiast-level Wi-Fi capable full-frame DSLR - A full-frame DSLR with 20.2MP delivering exceptionally precise detail and image quality while retaining convenience and compatibility through its design, layout and attributes. Paired with the high power Canon DIGIC 5+ processor along with it's 14-bit A/D conversion, this full-frame sensor has the capability of capturing vivid imagery using expanded sensitivity as high as ISO 102400. The sheer processing power also delivers intelligent noise reduction methods plus the ability to capture continuous still images using a rate as much as 4.5 full resolution frames per second.

The 6D makes use of an 11-point auto focusing system for capturing exacting focus in spite of the shooting environment, and is enhanced further by a centered cross-type focusing point for exacting focus sensitivity in low-light. The dual layer metering iFCL 63-zone sensor also takes advantage of the auto focusing system when taking exposure measurements, and additionally analyzes luminance and color values when framing the scene to detect precise exposure settings.

The 6D is smaller compared to other DSLR full-frame cameras, although still integrates a big 3.0 inch TFT 1,040K-dot LCD screen for bright review and playback of your images. The body construction combines a polycarbonate and magnesium shell outside a polycarbonate and aluminum alloy chassis for durability while maintaining a lightweight package.

Full HD video capture is available up to 1080/30p using IPB or All I-frame compression in addition to the normal H.264/MPEG-4 AVC codec. While capturing HD video, complete manual control over sound and exposure is possible, letting you take full direction over the final look of your videos.

Built-in GPS and Wi-Fi technologies also deliver wide-ranging connectivity to the Canon 6D. The GPS function will record location data automatically embed the information into your images metadata, letting you geotag your photos and map where each picture was shot. The integrated Wi-Fi lets you to take control of the 6D remotely when used in combination with Canon's Remote EOS app (available for Android and iOS), as well as being able to instantly share your images from the 6d to your smart phone or to connect with the iMAGE GATEWAY of CANON.

Included with lens kit is the Canon 24-105mm EF f/4.0L AF IS USM lens. This standard lens delivers a useful spread of focal zoom lengths ranging from wide angle through standard portrait length. It includes an Image Stabilizer for reducing camera shake as much as 3 stops and includes 1 glass Super-UD element along with 3 aspherical lenses to capture great photo clarity.
