The unveiling of full-frame DSLRs from Canon, Nikon and Sony have been the hottest topic in the photography world lately. Just after Sony announced their newest Sony Alpha α99 last September 13, Nikon had also announced their own  Nikon D600 one day later. In the other hand, Canon had just announced their Canon EOS 6D yesterday.  Another leap in innovation from the top DSLR producers in the market today. Built with more advance image sensors and extra features which aims to take photographer and videographers to  the next level in producing the superb image and HD video quality.

Brief Review

Sony Alpha α99 (successor to Sony’s flagship α900 DSLR) features a brand new 24.3 MP full-frame image sensor, a unique dual phase-detect AF system and a host of other innovative technologies that work together to deliver the best image and full HD video quality in the history of Sony’s acclaimed line of α cameras.

Canon EOS 6D is best seen as a full frame version of the EOS 60D – indeed it’s very similar in both control layout and dimensions. Its front profile is very similar to the Nikon D600, but it’s rather slimmer front-to-back, and lighter too.


Nikon D600 is built around a 24MP, 36x24mm, CMOS sensor and crams many of the features of the more expensive D800 into a distinctly D7000-esque body. It features a 100% coverage viewfinder and 39-point autofocus system, nine of which are cross-type points.


Pricing and Availability

The Sony Alpha α99 full-frame digital system camera will be available this October as body-only for about $2800. Canon EOS 6D will be sold in an estimated retail price of $2,099.00(body only). Nikon D600 will be available on September 18, 2012 for the suggested retail price (SRP) of $2,099.95*, for body only,
