Canon 6D Full-frame DSLR Camera Available in Singapore Today (Prices Announced)

Canon has just announced that their latest full-frame DSLR camera, the EOS 6D, will be available in Singapore from today. The camera comes with a 20.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor with 11 AF (Auto-focus) points, which is rated to operate in low-light situations (EV -3). It also comes with built-in Wi-Fi and GPS. A free EOS Remote App (for both iOS and Android) allows users to view live images from the 6D and adjust camera settings, as well as fire off the shutter.

The 6D comes in three kits:

  • S$2,899 (body only)
  • S$3,899 (with EF24-105 f/4 L IS USM lens)
  • S$4,699 (with EF24-70 f/4 L IS USM lens, available from end December)

The 6D comes in at a lower price than its direct competitor, the Nikon D600 which launched at S$3,249 (body only). It's worth noting that both cameras were announced at the same price in the United States; US$2,099 (body only, Canon, Nikon), which is roughly S$2566 at today's exchange rates. Both are a new breed of entry-level full-frame DSLR cameras meant to appeal to serious enthusiasts as well as professional photographers.

Here's a quick specs comparison between the two cameras:
