Peripheral Illumination Correction, Chromatic Aberration Correction, and Distortion Correction
The EOS 6D features a number of corrective tools to accommodate for the particulars of the lens used. Canon’s lens peripheral illumination correction feature corrects light falloff in the corner of the image. Chromatic aberration can be corrected at the time of shooting with the EOS 6D’s Chromatic Aberration Correction tool. The Distortion Correction feature corrects distortions such as curved lines by correcting for the characteristics of the particular lens used to take the shot, so images that may have been distorted in the captured image appear straight. The camera has correction data for a number of EF lenses preloaded, and new lenses can be added to the camera’s database via EOS Utility. The camera can even distinguish between different lenses of the same model using the serial number (with compatible EF lenses).
Auto Picture Style & Scene Intelligent Auto (A+)
The EOS 6D not only features a number of Canon’s Picture Style settings but also a Picture Style Auto setting that finely controls color tones for every composition based on information from the camera’s EOS Scene Detection System. This can be an effective feature not only in normal scenes, where “standard” punchy contrast will be used, but also in nature and outdoor scenes, where the blues and greens will look more vivid without the need to switch the camera’s Picture Style to Landscape.
In-Camera RAW Processing & JPEG Resize
The EOS 6D features state of the art in-camera RAW processing for quick conversion of RAW files to JPEG with control over size, brightness, WB, Picture Style, Auto Lighting Optimizer, Noise reduction, color space, distortion correction and more. Additionally, the EOS 6D features expanded Quick Control functions during playback like image protect, image rotate, rating, RAW image processing, resize, highlight alert, AF point and image jump, meaning a streamlined workflow can begin in the field.
The EOS 6D’s comparative playback mode enables images to be played back two at a time, side by side. A tremendous, in-camera timesaver, comparative playback means images can quickly be enlarged simultaneously to compare focus, blur and noise, and can be individually rated, deleted or locked.
The EOS 6D offers a silent, low vibration shooting mode. By slowing down and muting the shutter and mirror reflex action, the camera is capable of handheld, virtually imperceptible operation for discrete shooting in more situations.
Best Camera yet!
I havn't put this in my work yet due to getting use to the settings. I've shot at 10,000 ISO and printed a cropped 8x10 with no noticeable noise! This camera shoots very accurate in the AI setting. I've yet to find any flaws with it at this time, I'm still trying to get use to the setup which seems very convenient but different from my previous cameras. Looking at the reviews this Camera is rated very high! I bought this as a backup for my MK ll cameras which are getting alot of use. It seems like this might take over as my main camera due to the incredible high ISO quality shots that I need.

LOVE this camera!
This is my fourth Canon SLR. Started with Canon in film and stayed with them into digital. I started with a Rebel (since converted to in fared) and moved up to a 7D a few years ago. The 7D - on paper - had all the bells and whistles I was looking for, but somehow I just never really developed a relationship with it. I'd considered moving down to the 60D but held on and my wishes were granted. The 6D is everything I'd hoped for and more. I absolutely love this camera. Yes - it doesn't have the same burst rate, but as a landscape photographer - I don't care! It SO makes up for the everything I didn't like about the 7D…though I do miss not being able to use my EfS lenses…this is a purchase I will never regret.

I purchased this camera to move up to and augment my 7d I have fallen in love with the images that I am getting especially low light city shots coupled with 24-70 2.8l and this camera is wonderful the single cross type auto focus is ok for what I use it for for fast action I use my 7d. The gps and wifi features are a plus mating a iPhone or iPad takes some work and the canon app is primitive and needs further enhancements but image quality is superb .

I've been using the 6D for about 8 months now for both professional and casual photography. Overall it is excellent, and I would recommend it. However, it does have a problem with achieving auto focus sometimes. I generally us a Canon EF 24-105 L series lens on it and in many circumstances the focus will jump back and forth even in well defined subjects and will not focus. The only solution I've found is to only use the central focus point, since using the full 11-point array causes the problem. It will then auto focus, but this certainly limits the potential of the camera.
