Canon 6D Preview

Canon announced their new “entry level” full frame DSLR September 2012. It’s the Canon EOS 6D and it goes head to head with Nikon’s new D600. The EOS 6D (English, Franch) has a 20.2 MP full frame CMOS sensor, 1080p HD video at 30fps, ISO to 25600 (and expansion to ISO 102400), 4.5fps continuous shooting and a new 11 point AF system. Also, in what I think may be a first for DSLRs, the EOS 6D has built in Wi-Fi and GPS. With Canon’s other full frame DSLRs you need the Wi-Fi and GPS accessories, which currently will cost you $945 or so on top of the price of the camera. For an introductory price of $2099, the EOS 6D has them built in! The Wi-Fi will enable a smart phone or tablet to connect to and operate the 6D via a free app which Canon will provide.
The EOS 6D breaks new ground in being based on SD memory rather than CF memory. This is the first Canon full frame DSLR which doesn’t use CF cards. SD cards are significantly less expensive and are now fast enough that only the very fastest DSLRs need the extra speed which CF cards can provide.
-Full frame sensor (good for landscapes photography)
-Built in Wi-fi and GPS (gps does not work indoor) 
-Price is a little higher than its functions.
-11 AF points system not seasonable as it class price range (Canon 5D MIII- 61 AF points).
-SD cards work slower than FC, (most of photographer would prefer CF).
-Design really not that good.
