Canon 6D Is The Best Full Frame Deal Currently | Deal Dash

By Anthony Thurston on August 18th 2015

This is our daily deals report where we will feature a deal, or deals, that we think you should know about.

Canon 6D


Canon’s 6D is a great all around camera, offering 90-95% of the performance of its more advanced 5D Mark III brother for a fraction of the cost. Right now, you can get your hands on it for even less than normal, thanks to $300 in instant savings!

$1399 is the price, and that includes a ton of extras like an SD card, Monopod, and an extra battery. Hop on over to B&H now to grab this deal while it still lasts.

Nikon D4s


Do I really need to say much about this camera to get your mouth watering? What is there really to say? Nikon’s flagship camera is the ultimate tool for sports and wildlife shooters and also makes for an incredible studio and portrait camera. Normally out of reach for most of us, the D4s is currently a little more affordable.

If you are interested in saving $500 off the Nikon D4s, make sure to head on over to B&H and grab this deal while you still can.

Olympus OM-D E-M10


The next edition of this camera may be announced in a couple weeks if the rumors are accurate, but that doesn’t make this camera any less of a great deal for photographers interested in seeing what Micro 4/3rds has to offer.

You can nab this camera for a paltry $499; an awesome deal to get you started in a new camera system. If you are interested, you can find the deal over here at B&H.

    While the A7 is cheaper, the 6D is more fully featured, and this is from a guy who owns and loves the A7

    It’s never fun seeing the camera you bought 2 years ago being discounted. Should I have waited?

      Would you trade all the photographs you’ve made with it in those two years for the few hundred dollars difference?

      Sure would be nice, though, to know ahead of time when prices will come down and by how much! :)

      You are fine Graham. Almost everything we buy in life depreciates from the moment we walk out the store. The 6D is a fine tool and I’m sure you have made many a fine image with it. Continue to do so and resist/ignore the gear acquisition syndrome we all fall victim to from time to time.

      I know, it hurts. I paid full whack for my D750 back in September and its now sold at 4-500 dollars less. The upside is that I have had a years’ use from this fantastic camera that I would not have had if I had waited. Plus if you wait too long then the next best thing comes out and you want it, its too expensive so you wait, then the next best thing comes out ….What I am saying basically is if you want it go and get it and sod the expense. Its only money and you can’t take it with you.

    Anthony, a 6D has a decent FF sensor, has an EF mount…. and…. [long awkward pause] …annnnnd that’s about it. It’s a fine rig, but it’s not in the same feature set as a 5D3.

    The 5D3 is a far more versatile, reliable and rugged tool. It’s built like a tank and has the 1DX AF system. And many photographers would agree — the 6D nearly immediately plummeted in price while the 5D3 maintained it’s price for three years after launch.

      Lighter, smaller (nearly mirror less weight), wifi, marginally better noise control, ok it doesn’t have gazillions of focus points, but it’s £500 cheaper which would buy a decent secondhand L lens or pay for a trip somewhere you can take great pics. The mkiii is awesome no doubt, but sometimes we are paying for stuff that are only useful for bragging rights. ;)

      Or, for a guy like me that only shoots stills, 5D3 has a much more rugged body, more custom functions, a 1/8000 shutter and has much much much much much better AF system (comprehensively — tune-ability, range/point/cluster options, reliability, speed, etc.).

      But in fairness, if you don’t shoot moving objects, you love macro/landscape work, you generally live on a tripod, you want a second FF rig, etc. the 6D is a stellar call. It’s a great value when you consider it puts you in an FF world attached to the largest native (non-adaptored) lens ecosystem.

    I’m a bit surprised the 6D is still priced where it is. I bought one last year when they had the PIXMA PRO 100 bundle with a total of $650 in rebates. The bundle was $1950 before rebate so $1300 after. At that time the value of the printer was $400, putting a value of 6D at $900. Now it’s $1400 with cheap SD card, monopod and battery (about $100-150 value). I do see that the PRO-100 is now on $250 rebate though. At $149 that is a great price for this quality printer. I buy 3rd party inks and refill myself.
