With the Canon EOS 6D as a counterpoint to Nikon’s D600, full-frame shooting has become more affordable with only a few differences. Of course, if you already have a stash of Canon (EF only) or Nikon glass, your choice is a bit of a no-brainer (unless you want to change systems). On the other hand, if you’re stepping up–or crossing over from another brand to gain the benefit of full-frame–then the choice is more difficult. Read on to find out the differences between the two cameras and a quick look at what we think of the Canon EOS 6D.
- Excellent image quality
- Great low light/high ISO capabilities
- Full-frame shooting at an "affordable" price
- Built-in WiFi and
GPS Good performance overall
- Sophisticated feature set for the price
- No built-in flash
- Single SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot (vs. Nikon D600's dual card slot)
- Slightly soft images on default settings (depending on lens used)
