Canon EOS 6D Digital Camera Review$2,099.00
At maximum resolution and compression quality, the 6D maxes out at 30 frames per second, and this causes quite a bit of trailing that detracts from the smoothness and realism of the footage. Aside from this, video clips are very attractive. We detected only the slightest bit of compression artifacting, and no frequency interference. More on how CamcorderInfo tests motion.
Under both average and dim lighting, the 6D and 24-105mm kit lens are slightly less sharp than the D600 kit. The 6D achieved approximately 625 lp/ph horizontally and 650 vertically under 3000 lux studio illumination. Note this results aren't immune to a bit of moire, which is visible in areas of fine repetitive detail. More on how CamcorderInfo tests video sharpness.
When we took ambient lighting down to 60 lux, the 6D lost some sharpness, but not much. This time we recorded 600 lp/ph horizontally and 625 vertically, which is still impressive.
Low Light Sensitivity
Like many high-end Canon SLRs, the 6D is also capable of shooting video in extremely low light. Our lab test measures the light level at which a camera is no longer able to gather 50 IRE of video image data, assuming maximum sensitivity and kit lens aperture. The 6D's sensor was able to maintain 50 IRE until we dimmed the lights all the way down to 2 lux. This is an amazing score, surpassed only by Canon's own 1D X.
