Canon EOS 6D With And Without GPS and WiFi?

Thanks to reader Bernhard.

It looks like there are two models of the Canon EOS 6D, one with WiFi and GPS, and one without. According to German site blog.isarfoto Canon is shipping two different models of the EOS 6D.

The text in the picture above says: «the EOS 6D (N) does not have WiFi and GPS functionality». Anyone?

The (German) handbook can be downloaded here.

    This is true. This is something I have found out too here in Cyprus. The difference in the price of the two models is about 60 euro. I did not know it since I contacted a reseller here and I was given two difference prices.

    Why would anyone buy this camera without Wifi?

    However, a 6DE or 5D3E (camera without AA-filter) – oh yes!

  • Sean

    60 Euros? That’s not much considering the GPS receiver is 250 Dollars alone if bought for the 5D3.

  • Richard

    Even the english version mentions that there will be a (N)-version.

    oh, i was expecting more than $60 euro.

    As I know , some country are not allow the photo equipment with GeoTagging ability…. So that make the 6D…..but still clarifying this ..

    They sell 6d without GPS function in china! No sure that they move the part physically or not.

  • Both WiFi and GPS are features which require certain certification and it may be hard and not worth it top obtain in some countries, so usually the ‘without’ variants will be marketed only in such places. There are even low-end Powershot with those variants like the SX230 vs SX220, for example.

    Improves battery life might be a reason to consider the N version.

    Any idea when will canon release 6 DN model in India? What will be the price for the same?
    If they take down the price of DN version by at least 300$ then its good choice. I just want good cheap full frame camera capable of taking beautiful pictures.I don’t need GPS and WiFi.

      Unfortunately not. I am looking into it

    • bianca mcintyre

      Yes, you can get the 6D (N) for about 1350 verses with GPS and Wifi for 1799.00 or less, it’s not just a difference of 60.00 Euros.

  • robert

    does that mean that N version has full magnesium alloy body?

  • Fito

    I live in China and I found a third model called 6D (W) which only has Wi-Fi but not GPS. I’m trying to find the WG somewhere…

  • I thought I was buying a USA version of the Canon 6d when I was told the going price of $1279.99 was actually for the non USA version with no wifi and gps. Kind of misleading advertisement but for the price it’s TEMPTING! http://www.ajrichie.com/Canon-EOS-6D-Body/p-3380?refid=Ibcart

    Hi, I bought the 6D China version without GPS, only WIFI. Now I checked the EXIF data and I found a GPS Version ID. Does anyone know if there is the hardware build in and just deactivated by software? Is it possible to activate the GPS?

    • Tobias

      I also bought the 6D China version and I am crazily searching for a possibility to activate the GPS-function. I did the same mistake not to see the detaily – which means, the difference between 6D WG and 6D W. OK, I am glad to have this camera. It’s a big difference to my former used 50D (especially for night scenery) – and that for less than 1250€. But one of the major reasons to buy this camera was the integrated GPS. I would be thanksful, if anybody could give some suggestion.

      But one of the major reasons to buy this camera was the integrated GPS. I didn’t take care on the details and bought the
      EOS 6D W – not WG. For less than 1250€ it’s absolutely a good deal. But I still hope to get the GPS activated.
      Is there anybody who is more experienced in the 6D W version?
      Thanks for your reply.
