There is so much things you can do with this
Had my Mark II for over two years and over the course of I, the more I spend time with it, the more I realised how capable this is. I definitely have to say that the weight is quite hafty but it is still consider to be light comparing to others in the same range. Absolutely love it
Canon Eos 6D Review
I've had this camera for about a year now, and it is quite good. i would strongly recommend it for photographers who are branching out into professionally photography and for images of a reasonably high quality. however there are newer and a bit more expensive cameras such as the 5D mark 4, which provide similar specifications and capabilities which are slightly or generally better. But i have had a lot of fun with the 6D, i mainly use if for sports photography. with these action shots, the 6D gave me awesome image quality and were sharp and cl...ear, but the only annoying thing i have had to adapt to is the slow FPS. but all in all, this is a great camera, it is getting a little bit old, and is kind of being outdated by newer models, but is generally still holds up well for me.
Camera not recognised by Canon Utilities
In late November 2016 I purchased a Canon EOS 6D DSLR camera from the online retailer CameraSky. The camera has turned out to be a dud. After loading Canon Utilities and connecting the camera to the computer, the message which flashes up repeatedly is 'Camera not Recognised'. I have referred this problem to Camerasky and, as of late December (yes--one month later), they are showing no signs of exchanging my dud for a good working camera. I have been in touch with Canon Australia who have tested the camera online and provided me with a written r...eport showing the camera to be faulty. I have passed this on to CameraSky. They haven't even acknowledged it. I paid for the camera with my credit card. My next move must be to block the payment, if it is not too late. I think that this camera is either a reject or a fake. Beware!
Great FF camera for enthusiast and pros
Three years after purchasing the 6D I still think it's a great all-rounder camera for the price. It's hi ISO quality is brilliant and liberating however it's video capabilities are not great at all and focusing system is a bit outdated. Put on a small prime and it's a fun, light and manageable camera.

An affordable FF DSLR.
A very good camera at the time it was released.
Pros : full-frame, Wifi, GPS, light weight (as compared to older model) , AF focus in dark (-3EV), good quality picture (low noise).
Cons : only 9 AF points (1 cross hair point in the middle), no built-in flash, low FPS (3.9/sec).
Good for portraits and landscapes, weak in sport and birding.
One more thing, multiple exposures applied only in jpeg, not raw.
A wonderful new toy
Only had this a short time nonetheless I'm impressed with the build quality and images achieved so far. Looking forward to spending more time with this and various lenses to explore its capabilities further.
I haven't used the WiFi or GPS facilities yet.
No regrets about getting this rather than the 5D Mark Iii, plus saved quite a bit of money.
Good, not perfect
First, if you don't understand the terms "full frame" and "crop sensor", then this isn't likely to be the camera for you. Research those first and if "full frame" is a must have, read on.
This is my 4th Canon EOS dslr, but the first full frame. I had a choice between this and the 5d mark iii. I chose the 6D because it was less bulky and much cheaper.
The main gripe people have about the 6D is the lack of auto focus points. Like many people, I just use the centre point almost all the time, using the focus and recompose method. This makes t...he all singing and dancing autofocus system of the 5diii, a waste of money for me. Changing from my crop 60D to this full frame 6D, I have been inspired to take more photos. Can't say if that's because of the 6D or because it is just a newer toy. I've certainly tried to be more creative in my compositions. The large viewfinder is wonderful. New features for EOS cameras are the wifi and the gps. Both are very handy, the former can be used to remote shoot with a smartphone app among other uses, while the latter helps track where things were shot. Both are enabled via menus, which is painful. GPS on/off is relatively easy to do via menus, but also easy to forget, leaving it on chews through battery life quickly.
