6d (wg)?
« on: May 26, 2013, 05:08:28 AM »
Hey everyone, finally got my 6d on the way. I just wasn't sure what the (wg) was on one of the models? Is it just wifi-GPS? Or some foreign label thing? Anyways, making sure I got the legit thing. I bought from digital rev as I had heard good things and their price was nice.. Thanks for the responses!

The (WG) version has WiFi and GPS and is the one sold in most of Europe, the USA, etc. The (N) version doesn't have WiFi and GPS and is mainly sold in regions where the camera hasn't received approval for the Wifi/GPS.

Here's a link to a PDF of the camera's manual: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/8/0300009238/01/eos6d-im-en.pdf

You'll see both designations on the first page, with a little explanation of what (N) is at the bottom.

It would be nice if Canon offered both models everywhere, with a minor price difference (meaning the "N" should be cheaper).
Sold most of my Canon gear ... here's what's left: EOS 30D (x2), EF 24mm f/2.8, EF Compact-Macro 50mm f/2.5, EF 70-200mm f/4L USM.

I don't think it would be much of a price difference. Better to have Wifi and gps. Who knows it might come in handy, esp the wifi.

Yep, the WiFi function I initially thought was a massive gimmick, but now I use it quite regularly if I'm doing street photography, very handy. If only it was fast enough to transfer RAW's!
