For the first time in a Canon DSLR, the new EOS 6D finally includes Wi-Fi connectivity and built-in GPS, unveiled at the Photokina 2012 camera trade show.
The EOS 6D also includes a 20.2 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, the latest Digic 5+ processor, an IOS range of 100-25600, a 3.1 inch Clear View 2 TFT LCD display.
You can also shoot in both JPEG and RAW formats and even shoot in Full 1080p HD with 29.97, 25 and 23.976 frames per second, however the Wi-Fi connectivity is probably the most interesting part of this camera, but doesn’t work as you would think.
The Wi-Fi connectivity won’t allow you to check e–mails or message someone on Facebook, but it will allow you to wirelessly transfer images to your computer, the cloud or even a smartphone/ tablet whilst on the move.
The GOS function also allows you to automatically add a geotag to all of those images, there’s also a new autofocus system which is 10 points, and can coexist with various other modes such as Contrast Detect, Phase Detect Multi-area Selective single-point Single, Continuous, Face Detection and Live View.
There’s also a HDR mode, SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot, USB 2.0 and HDMI out, and a remote control port, alongside an optical viewfinder, but no in-built flash.
The Canon EOS 6D will launch in the UK from December, and will be available, Body-only for £1,799 or in a bundle pack which includes the EOS 6D and a EF 24-105mm f/4 LIS USM lens for £2,519.99.
