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.
