Canon EOS 6D review – The competition

Image: Nikon D600

Canon and Nikon’s ‘budget-level’ full-frame DSLRs go head to head, and a side-by-side comparison of the Canon EOS 6D and the Nikon D600 shows clear advantages to each system. The D600 has a higher-resolution 24.3-million-pixel sensor, slightly larger LCD screen, twin card slot and an optical viewfinder with a 100% field of view. However, the EOS 6D has both GPS and Wi-Fi built in, while the D600 requires separate units for these functions.




If cost is the main reason to consider a more affordable full-frame camera, it might be just as well to consider the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. The camera has been replaced by the EOS 5D Mark III, but is still widely available and at a significantly reduced price. The camera features a 21.1-millon-pixel sensor, so there is unlikely to be a big difference in image quality in good light, but the performance of the EOS 6D in low light is notably improved.
