A compact full-frame D-SLR camera that goes by the name Canon EOS 6D has just been unboxed, but the device will not hit store shelves before December this year. The GPS-enabled snapper takes advantage of a 20.2MP sensor as well as a Digic 5+ image processor to reproduce improved quality images.
Apart from manual creative options, it has been installed with automatic settings as well. The lightweight device tags along a cleaning system for removing dust and boasts of being durable enough to last for up to 100,000 shutter cycles. Its ISO sensitivity ranges between 100 and 25,600 and it claims to be capable of capturing detailed pictures in poorly lit conditions with the assistance of the CMOS and the auto focus system.
“The introduction of this camera completes a well-rounded ecosystem from input through output for Canon, allowing us to provide the right combination of features for every level of photographer. We believe the EOS 6D Digital SLR Camera along with our new Pixma Pro printers will help unlock the creative vision of so many who aspire to capture and display their artistic abilities,” commented Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A.
Outfitted with a 3-inch Clear view LCD monitor, the Canon device is capable of recording 1080p videos. Its built-in transmitter allows photographers to wirelessly share images with other Canon shooters or handheld gadgets like smartphones and tablets. The in-camera creative modes are inclusive of HDR, Multiple Exposure mode, Scene Intelligent Auto, compositing methods and more. Apart from SD, SDHC and SDXC cards, users can also insert a Ultra High Speed card in the dedicated slot.
The Canon EOS 6D D-SLR price is $2,099 and $2,899 along with a EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM zoom lens. They are expected to be made available in December.
