Nikon D610 vs. Canon 6D: The battle of the affordable, full-frame DSLRs


posted Friday, August 15, 2014 at 5:42 PM EDT


If you're in the market for a full-frame DSLR with a relatively affordable price-tag, the Canon 6D and Nikon D610 will doubtless be right near the top of your list. But if you're not already invested in full-frame glass for the Canon EF or Nikon F lens mounts, choosing between the two is quite a challenge.

As the entry-level point to each company's full-frame DSLR line, these two cameras have a whole lot in common with each other beyond their sensor size. Their feature set, body size and build are quite similar, and there's not much to separate them in terms of resolution, either.

But when you take a closer look, there are some very important differences that will make each camera better-suited to different styles of photography, so this is a decision you want to get right.
