[Rumor] New Tidbits About Canon’s Entry-Level Full Frame Camera (EOS 6D?)

The rumor is reported by NL. As you probably know, we expect Canon to announce an entry-level full frame DSLR (have a look here too) for Photokina in September 2012. The reported specs basically cover what I already reported before. The information I got in the past were naming an EOS 7D Mark II as the upcoming entry-level full frame camera, while NL is referring to a 6D. Whatever the name will be, I think it can be taken for granted that Canon is indeed working on such a camera (and maybe already testing prototypes), especially if you consider that Nikon is doing the same (there is a leaked image of the cam). ’nuff said, let’s have a look on the leaked specs (I hope this camera comes with a more advanced AF system):

  • Two different sensor specs received […] for a ‘cheaper’ FF DSLR.
  • One suggests an 18MP sensor and the other 22MP
    • Looks like straightforward remodelling of either the 1DX or 5D3 sensors
  • Other features:
    • Design closer to 7D than 5D3 (smaller and with flash)
    • 7D style AF system (19 pt) and VF LCD
    • 7D metering
    • Single Digic 5+
    • 3.9 fps
    • 3 inch LCD
    • 51200 max ISO
    • sub – $2000 price point at introduction
