The Canon EOS 6D's iFCL metering is able to handle tricky lighting situations well. In this shot the high contrast and differences in exposures have been well balanced, enabling the capture of an image that retains detail well in both the shadows and highlights.

Taken with the Canon EF 70-200mm L series lens, the centre cross type AF point locks on focus quickly, ensuring you get the shot you want. Zooming into the image at 100% shows that, while the image is sharp, the built-in JPEG processing has softened the detail.

Colours captured are bright and vibrant, and this late afternoon shot shows that the camera's tendency to add warmth really helps to bring this image to life.

In low light there is a large difference in the exposures needed to capture this landscape. However, the full-frame sensor is capable of capturing a wide dynamic range that avoids burnt out highlights in the sky and lost detail in the shadows.

The 20.2 million pixel sensor is able to resolve plenty of fine detail, picking out the texture and colour of the goat's coat well.

Evaluative metering and a low sensitivity of ISO 100 have helped to capture this landscape perfectly, with no visible noise and plenty of rich detail and colour.

Using evaluative metering for this scene proved tricky, due to the direct light from the sun. But dialling in +1.33 of exposure compensation enabled the camera to capture the warmth of the rising sun well.

Despite shooting into the sun and plenty of lens flare, the Canon EOS 6D's full frame sensor and metering system still manage to capture the shot, with the AF quickly finding focus.
