Canon EOS 6D vs Nikon D600 - Key Differences

September 17, 2012 | Zoltan Arva-Toth | Digital SLR Cameras , Photokina 2012 | Comment |

Within the past few days, both Nikon and Canon have announced new “full-frame” - or “FX format” in Nikon speak - digital SLR cameras (namely, the Nikon D600 and the Canon EOS 6D) that are more affordable than any other comparable and currently manufactured model in the two manufacturers’ line-ups. In order to help you get a clearer picture of how they compare to each other specifications-wise, we’ve compiled a handy little table summarising the key differences between the two models, based on information available to us at the time of writing.


Do note that the table highlights the key differences only - keep in mind that the two cameras have a lot more similarities, ranging from the ~24x36mm size of their sensors to their top shutter speed of 1/4000th second.

NB: The image showing the two cameras side by side is not to scale.
