Ergonomically Better Than Older 5D
6D is ergonomically better than my older gen 1 5D. I've compared 5D with EF 50mm f/1.8 II, 6D with EF 50mm f/1.8 STM and Fuji X-T10 with 35mm f/2.0 lens. I must say that 6D produces a bit more beautiful images than 5D with more noticeable level of dynamic range. However, in some situations an older 5D produces by default a bit more warmer tone, and 5D picture appear to be more pleasant from time to time. But compared to Fuji X-T10 mirrorless camera with award winning 35mm f/2.0 lens, 5D and 6D images with Canon's 50mm f/1.8 lenses fall short in corner areas. When zoomed in 3 times for cropping or pixel peeping, Canon's images begin to look like painting instead of photograph, while Fuji X-T10 images look remain photographic. I regret that I have bought Canon 6D. I plan to get rid of all of my Canons and buy one more Fuji X-T10 with different lenses. Fuji's imaging is so much superior than Canons as long as jpeg shooting is concerned. If you shoot RAW though, it is an entirely different matter as long as you process your RAW file with CaptureOne Pro 7 and later. CaptureOne Pro's RAW processing engine is so much better than Lightroom or Photoshop. I no longer use any RAW processing software from Adobe.Read full review...

Nice upgrade from the 5D
But, as some others have mentioned the focusing is tricky and always at the forefront of my mind when shooting. Something I feel I should not have to worry about, something I never worried about with my 5D of eight years. Focusing is not accurate especially with my EF 50mm 1.4 lens which I love dearly when using at the larger apertures. I have used the focusing adjustment to match the focal plane of the camera with different lenses but it's like chasing a ghost, always changes with different focusing distances. It's a nice quality camera and maybe in time I will learn to live with the focusing issues but I would not buy this camera again based on better experiences with other Canon cameras. I have been an avid photographer for over 40 years and used many film and digital cameras especially Canon products for what it's worth. I hope this helps you in making a decision to purchase this item!Read full review...

Amazing camera for the price.
I've been photographing weddings and portraits for almost 15 years. In that time I have used dozens of camera bodies from Nikon, Canon, Olympus and Fuji. Each have great individual qualities. Currently I'm shooting a pair of Canon 6D bodies with various Canon lenses. I have a 5D mkII for backup, along with several older Canon bodies.
As for ease of use. It's as easy or as complicated as you make it. Set it on Program and it does a decent job. Set it on manual, take control of it and it does an outstanding job. Amazing quality at higher ISOs. ISO 10,000 is as clean as 1,600 on some of my other cameras.
The write time / buffer is the only limitation I have currently found. When shooting a burst of RAW files, it is not as good as the higher end bodies, but for the price, that is to be expected.Read full review...

I upgraded from a Canon T1s to the 6D. I was seeking less noise in higher IOS low light situations in particular with sporting events. I got that. I was also seeking better focus, sharpness, and details on far away objects and subjects. I got that as well, but to the level I would like. I have been able to move further in that direction with editing.
The first question is "Is it easy to use?" This not point and shoot technology. Of course it is not easy to use. It takes time to locate features and make adjustments to any new camera and DSLR cameras have a host features.
I am indeed satisfied with image quality, but I still need to figure out some photography practices to improve detail and crispness of images. A major issue not overcome is camera shake. I could not figure out for years why I was having trouble with some images that appeared focused at fast speeds which were soft and appeared out of focus. This was especially noticeable on materials over 100 yards away. I have been have less of an issue with the 6D. I can't give an accounting for why. It may be a full frame camera is helpful. It may be the weight of the camera helps keep it steadier. I have just seen improvement over the T1i on this issue.
I recommend the camera though I am not prepared to give it 5 stars.Read full review...

If it's the tool you need, it's awesome!
I've researched this camera and others for 8 months and this was exactly what I was looking for. I shoot landscape, portraits, and life as it comes, and it's the right tool for what I enjoy doing. I wanted to upgrade to full frame and not spend too much money, so the 6D was a great option. It isn't the best camera for sports photography-only at 4.5 frames per second-so if that's important to you, I would choose a different camera. When I turned it on out of the box, it was in mirror lock up mode, which to the inexperienced photographer could seem like something was wrong with it. This is definitely a camera for the moderately experienced photographer-a beginner might get lost in the menu and custom settings very easily. The wifi feature is really handy, and you have to give it some time when you're operating the camera or viewing photos from your phone through the app. It doesn't take a ridiculous amount of time to respond and complete the task, but it's not instantaneous, so patience is required.Read full review...

An excellent choice without a high price.
Excellent image quality and a great value. I would recommend reading a few detailed reviews in regard to the focusing system which is very basic and has some limitations but this was not a game changer for me. I think even with limitations this may be Canon's best value for the cost in a full frame sensor camera. It is not their newest line of cameras but it is an excellent camera.Read full review...

I love love love my new Canon 6D
If you are looking for a full-frame DSLR that operates well in low light, look no further than the Canon EOS 6D. Coupled with Phase One Capture One, you can create some fantastic final images with RAW images. If you are looking to do event photography at venues with high ceilings, you can get some great shots. The downside is that the focus can be a bit wonky since there is only one cross-type focus point with this system. But if you really learn how to become one with the camera - like driving a car - you'll know what you can and can't do and eventually know how to compensate for the shortcomings.
I'm upgrading from the Canon EOS 7D, and there is something about the full-frame sensor look that I love over the crop sensor, and the 6D does not disappoint.
If you are looking to use this paired with Magic Lantern to shoot raw video, there is a 40mbs data transfer rate via the SD card slot, and there is no way around that. The consistent max resolution you are going to get is around 1280px. But to be honest, if you stretch the raw video to 1920, it looks cleaner than the compressed full HD video, AND you can be more creative in adjusting color. The other downside is the bad, terrible Moiré pattern visible on complex textures. However, there is a 300 and some change filter block you can use that can help compensate for that.
The overall PROs and CONs for me as an Event Photographer/Videographer thus far
- Great in low light / handling ISO noise
- Nice dynamic range when editing in Capture One
- GREAT color range
- Battery health indicator
- Color Presets
- Focusing can be a little tricky
- 40mbs SD data transfer rate cap
- Bad Moiré pattern
Any minor things like GPS battery drain and button placement are but minor problems that're easy to resolve or with which to become acclimated.Read full review...

This is my second 6D. It is such a great camera. I'm a wedding photographer who needs something sharp, easy to use, reliable, and fast - the 6D is perfect for all of those things! And not to mention that the image quality is amazing. I also have a Mark III and can never even tell the difference between which photos I took with the 6D and which were taken with the Mark III.Read full review...

It is a night and day difference when switching from a APS DSLR to a full frame SLR. 70D's high ISO such as 12800 is useless and detrimental since you are unaware how poor the image can be at high ISO. On the other hand, the images are decent when shooting ISO12800 using 6D.
But 6D doesn't have internal flashlight, which is an inconvenience.
I received a big box labelled EOS6D EF 24-105 f/4L IS kit. The box turned out to be 80% empty, with just the camera body. It seems that the vendor felt it is more profitable when selling the camera and lens separately, while getting the camera and lens kit from Canon.Read full review...

Great camera upgrade
This is my first "big girl" professional camera upgrade from my canon t5. I am a portrait photographer who started off using the t5 as a beginner camera and while I loved that camera it wasn't giving me the results I wanted.
When I got the 6D, I instantly fell in love with it. It performs really well in low light, I get sharp images and it's not much heavier than my older camera. I am still playing around with it to get the hang of using a full frame vs crop sensor but so far I love everything about it.Read full review...

Buy one used and it's a great deal
Full frame sensor for a quality look, Canon color science. Lightweight and small for a full frame camera. Huge selection of lenses. Hard to find fault unless you need it for extreme sports or wildlife. It will work, but there are better choices for that.Read full review...
