Canon India, recently announced the launch of its latest EOS DSLR for serious photography enthusiasts – the EOS 6D.
The EOS 6D is the world’s lightest DSLR to feature a full-frame CMOS sensor, making it ideal for travel, portrait and landscape photographers. The model creates a new entry point into Canon’s full-frame line-up, and is perfect for those who want greater control over depth of field, or to maximize the impact of shooting with the EOS system’s extensive range of wide-angle EF lenses.
The EOS 6D combines a powerful, full-frame imaging system and superior low-light performance with a compact, robust and lightweight design. For the first time in any EOS model, Wi-Fi2 and GPS3 connectivity are included, empowering photographers to capture stunning images on the move, tag them with location information and wirelessly transfer them to a computer, the cloud, or smartphones.
The superb picture quality that users get with the EOS 6D stems from the power of a full-frame CMOS sensor. A full-frame sensor is equivalent to that of 35mm film, which is larger than the APS-C size sensors found in most DSLR cameras. The major advantage of full-frame, is that it maximizes the full potential of visual data captured by lenses designed for 35mm cameras.
To make the EOS 6D incredibly convenient for users, it is outfitted with WiFi capabilities. WiFi allows the EOS 6D to connect to wireless networks at speedy 802.11 b/g/n wireless standards, so that it can transfer data to PCs and smartphones at speeds up to 150 mbps and print photos with PictBridge-enabled (DPS over IP) wireless printers.
The image quality of the EOS 6D’s videos has been improved by the reduction of moire and color fringing. The 4GB movie file size limit has been removed, allowing users to shoot video clips up to 30 minutes each depending on memory card capacity.
