Canon EOS 6D

The EOS 6D is a full-frame DSLR camera released by Canon in late 2012. As of 2017, it was still manufactured and sold by dealers. Such a long time frame for a digital camera is quite unusual. If the camera is still in production, it means that there is meaningful demand for it. And if there was still demand several years after the introduction, it means that this model was very successful and Canon had done many things right.

The EOS 6D has GPS support, so you can record the location information in the EXIF data of your image files. However, if this setting is enabled, it will significantly increase the camera’s power consumption, so it is recommended to carry a few spare batteries with you.

I bought the 6D in 2013, as a backup camera for my 5D Mk II. After testing the 6D, I came to the conclusion that I liked it more than my primary camera. Better colours, better dynamic range and sharper videos in a smaller body meant that the 5D Mk II ended up as a backup camera for the 6D.

I sold it some time after I switched to Sony's E-mount, but all the nice pictures it produced remain in my portfolio. Below are some of my favorite photos taken with the Canon 6D.

You can find great deals for the Canon 6D on Ebay.
