So it's official, I'm driving down to Oregon on Saturday to purchase my 6D kit. I couldnt be happier for this upgrade. I just wanted to hop on here and have you guys who own 6Ds list your favorite features in attempt to get me even more excited for the big day.

I'm most excited for the new lens that comes with it, the geotagging, the ability to use my iPhone as a shutter release cable (or technically wireless), and the quality of images using the high ISO range. There is so much more but those are just the few things that first popped into my head.

List your favorite features here!


Canon 6D, & Sony α6000
Own: 24-105mm f/4L | Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 | Rokinon 14mm f/1.8
Want: 24-70mm f/2.8 L II | 70-200mm f/2.8 L II

High ISO, low noise is what sold me. That and the way it fits in my hands are two of the main reasons I chose it over the 5D3. The wifi is also a nice tool to have in the studio.

Full-frame with all the modern bells and whistles is calling me. I am still going back and forth as I can't find my 5D lacking in any way that matters to the outcome.

Are you talking unique features, or just features in general?

Coming from a 60D, for me it was the High ISO quality, and silent shutter mode (do a lot of theatre work).

I like the sound of the shutter - it makes my T2i sound like a toy in comparison.

OK, that may be a bit trivial.

I don't think it is trivial. It probably doesn't affect the outcome much, though. I absolutely love the shutter sound of my 5D, especially compared to my 60D. There is a world of difference between the two.

Lightweight and Immense high iso detail and quality.

I do have a love hate relationship with mine though... I also own a 7D which is more for outdoors and sports stuff now. But when you are used to the wonderful focussing system and button layout of the 7D, the 6D's simplified design can be extremely annoying! I suppose it just depends what you want it for and the argument is simply "I should have bought a 5D mark iii" but hey, I wanted something lightweight and that's what I got!

There are no two ways about it though... The 6D is a wonderful camera and it fits right into the market place where Canon wanted. A really high quality, user friendly, straight forward full frame camera. I don't regret buying it one bit :)
