With its High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode, the EOS 6D can merge 3 images of varying exposure in camera and save them as one final image, capturing a broad range of shadow and highlight detail with stunning tonal range. Adjustable to cover a range of ±3 stops, HDR recording truly expands the parameters of the light and dark detail a camera can actually record, surprising viewers with the range of tones a photograph can accurately recreate.
Multiple Exposure Control
The EOS 6D offers a Multiple Exposure mode for film-like image creation with the convenience of in-camera processing. It offers two different compositing methods for proper exposure and composition: additive or average. Multiple exposure shots from 2 to 9 are stored as one final image and can be taken in both RAW and JPEG shooting modes. A RAW image previously captured by the EOS 6D (3:2 aspect ratio only) can be used as a starting point, and cumulative results can be observed and corrected in real time on the camera's LCD screen.
Scene Intelligent Auto mode
An enhanced Scene Intelligent Auto mode incorporates a number of Canon technologies to deliver the best possible exposure. Joining Picture Style Auto, Automatic Lighting Optimizer, Automatic White Balance, Autofocus, and Automatic Exposure, Scene Intelligent Auto mode analyzes the image, accounting for faces, colors, brightness, moving objects, contrast, even whether the camera is handheld or on a tripod, and then chooses the exposure and enhancements that bring out the best in any scene or situation.
Special Scene modes
The EOS 6D features a variety of Special Scene modes that achieve high-quality images: Handheld Night Scene and HDR Backlight Control. The Handheld Night Scene mode captures nightscapes with bright highlights and detailed dark areas by shooting and combining four consecutive shots at a shutter speed fast enough to avoid camera shake, making dramatic nighttime photography simple. The HDR Backlight Control mode ensures that backlit subjects are not recorded too dark by shooting three consecutive shots at different exposures (underexposed, correctly exposed and overexposed) and then combining the images; the final result maintains detail in both the shadow and highlight areas, ensuring the backlit subject is properly exposed.
Best Camera yet!
I havn't put this in my work yet due to getting use to the settings. I've shot at 10,000 ISO and printed a cropped 8x10 with no noticeable noise! This camera shoots very accurate in the AI setting. I've yet to find any flaws with it at this time, I'm still trying to get use to the setup which seems very convenient but different from my previous cameras. Looking at the reviews this Camera is rated very high! I bought this as a backup for my MK ll cameras which are getting alot of use. It seems like this might take over as my main camera due to the incredible high ISO quality shots that I need.

LOVE this camera!
This is my fourth Canon SLR. Started with Canon in film and stayed with them into digital. I started with a Rebel (since converted to in fared) and moved up to a 7D a few years ago. The 7D - on paper - had all the bells and whistles I was looking for, but somehow I just never really developed a relationship with it. I'd considered moving down to the 60D but held on and my wishes were granted. The 6D is everything I'd hoped for and more. I absolutely love this camera. Yes - it doesn't have the same burst rate, but as a landscape photographer - I don't care! It SO makes up for the everything I didn't like about the 7D…though I do miss not being able to use my EfS lenses…this is a purchase I will never regret.

I purchased this camera to move up to and augment my 7d I have fallen in love with the images that I am getting especially low light city shots coupled with 24-70 2.8l and this camera is wonderful the single cross type auto focus is ok for what I use it for for fast action I use my 7d. The gps and wifi features are a plus mating a iPhone or iPad takes some work and the canon app is primitive and needs further enhancements but image quality is superb .

I've been using the 6D for about 8 months now for both professional and casual photography. Overall it is excellent, and I would recommend it. However, it does have a problem with achieving auto focus sometimes. I generally us a Canon EF 24-105 L series lens on it and in many circumstances the focus will jump back and forth even in well defined subjects and will not focus. The only solution I've found is to only use the central focus point, since using the full 11-point array causes the problem. It will then auto focus, but this certainly limits the potential of the camera.
