Set to its 'silent' drive mode the 6D is also wonderfully quiet and discreet - great if you don't want to draw attention to yourself while shooting.

We would have liked to have seen an articulated LCD screen for easier composition, and the auto-focus system for movies is still decidedly clunky when compared to mirrorless cameras, but otherwise the 6D handles both stills and video with aplomb.

When shooting in Raw, you have the choice of shooting in full resolution (i.e. 5472x3648 pixels), along with M-Raw (3468x2432 pixels) and S-Raw (2736x1824 pixels).

Looking at the size and control layout of the Canon EOS 6D quickly confirms that it is a mix of both the Canon EOS 7D and Canon EOS 60D, with the size, weight and control layout being similar to the Canon 60D but with the Canon 7D's movie and stills live view switch on its back.
