*UPDATE* More Canon EOS 6D Specs Surface [CR1]
« on: September 11, 2012, 04:52:09 PM »

*UPDATE*

As far as the EOS 6D goes, I’ve been told a few things about the specs previously posted.



  • Does not have a flip out screen

  • It’s 4.5fps not 4.9

  • No built in flash


It’s possible that 2 cameras are being mixed up and showing up in one spec list.


More talk about an upcoming 6D

We have received a larger spec list in regards to a forthcoming Canon EOS 6D. This camera will come in between the 7D and the 5D Mark III and replace the 5D Mark II


Specs



  • 22MP full frame

  • Flip out screen, Built in flash

  • 19 pt AF, 63 zone metering

  • Single Digic 5+

  • 4.9 fps (Also heard 4.5fps)

  • 3 inch LCD (We’d previously heard touchscreen)

  • ISO 12,800

  • New battery and grip – new GPS and WiFi grip option.

  • Built in ‘connectivity and sharing’ software


This looks similar to what [NL] also received. I also agree with Northlight that the camera spec rumors don’t quite feel “real” yet. Take this spec list with a grain of salt.

What doesn't feel real about that - maybe it's too good to be true? The one thing that looks strange is the built-in flash on a ff Canon body, maybe they downgraded the viewfinder to fit it in.

It should be a budget camera, I thing 9 AF points is more reasonable.

Raw video 2k 60fps please :D

...no word about build/sealing/mag alloy body ? And I guess AFMA is out of question for now...

AFMA and body construction are 2 things that Im really curious about. I can live with little more plastic/polycarbonate...but AFMA is really important (is someone is shooting with primes).

But other specs seam plausible. And are just fine, if you ask me.

I somehow don't see even a remote possibility of this camera being cheaper or 'better' than the rumored D600...

$1500 is the magic number.  if Nikon can hit it, that would be awesome.  ...but somehow I think, even if, Nikon's D600 is $1500, and this 6D is real, it will be $2000.

I'm curious if they 19 AF points will be in a crop sensor spread... If so it will be more crammed into the middle than the 5D2 is. 19points is perfect I think, but for FF they will need to spread them out.

Nobody said its gonna be cheper  ;) IF rumors are true then this one will go for 1900-2000 USD and D600 for +- 1899 USD. But well, we have to wait and see. And now its hard to tell which one will be better without official specs and sample images...

would be awesome if it has
- AFMA
- pc sync port

and lets hope that the articulated screen is not a rumor

Touch screen is useless. Its an slr camera, not a touch phone for christ sake!

I can see something similar to this becoming my back up camera to my 5DMkIII and replace my 5DmkII.  Maybe it would even become my preferred non commercial use camera just like the 7D was when it first came out.

The specs is looking quite better. I'm actually interested now. Let's just hope for the best.

Well you can compare the rumored specs over at Nikon Rumors and within a day or so, we'll all know the real specs for the D600. The listed specs don't look that much different to me. Difference of 2 mp (22 vs. 24); difference of 1/2 frame per second; 39 vs. 19 auto focus points but no word on how many are cross-type; Canon with one stop better ISO performance.

Cheaper? Won't know that until pricing is announced. I seriously doubt that the rumored D600 will come in at the price point originally predicted.

Personally, I'm stoked to see both manufacturers introducing something new. I'll have no complaints no matter which is announced.

Well, I hope for AFMA (I shoot with primes most of time) and good build (mag alloy). I dont care much about flip screen - I would use it when needed, then screen would be turned around with screen facing camera.

Touchscreen could have some use but I can easily live withou it...its not iPhone, it DSLR.
