Canon 6D review

We test Canon's most affordable full-frame DSLR

As part of our image quality testing for the Canon EOS 6D review, we've shot our resolution chart. These images were captured using a full-production sample of the camera.

If you view our crops of the resolution chart's central section at 100% (or Actual Pixels) you will see that, for example, at ISO 100 the Canon EOS 6D is capable of resolving up to around 26 (line widths per picture height x100) in its highest quality JPEG files.

For a full explanation of what our resolution charts mean, and how to read them, check out our full explanation of our camera testing resolution charts.

Examining images of the chart taken at each sensitivity setting reveals the following resolution scores in line widths per picture height x100:
