Canon EOS 6D – New More Affordable Full-Frame Digital SLRAs expected, Canon is introducing another new digital SLR at the Photokina tradeshow this year. Priced at $2100, the new Canon EOS 6D is a more affordable option for Canon photographers who want the benefits of a full-frame camera. The EOS 6D has a 20.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, DIGIC 5+ processing, full HD video and an 11-point auto focus system. In spite of its lower price, the EOS 6D has a lot of the same features as the new 5D Mark III, including DIGIC 5+ processing, 63-zone dual-layer metering and ISO 25,600 sensitivity. But Canon also gave it a couple of cool new features – built-in Wi-Fi and GPS.
