[Video] Canon 5D Mark III vs Canon 6D: What’s The Difference?

Can’t decide whether to get the Canon 6D or Canon 5D Mark III? Although you can’t go wrong with either one, it’s good to break down the differences between the two. Thankfully, the good people at DSLR Video Shooter shared a video to help.

In the video, they delve into the 9 biggest differences between the two cameras, a couple being the dual card slots and the headphone jack in the 5D. In the end, the winner was the Canon 6D, mostly because of the cheaper price. The 6D prices around $1800 for the body, definitely on the lower end of DSLR prices, but at the cost of fewer features. Then you have the 5D MIII which typically retails around $3,400 for the body, but full of all the features you’d want in a full-frame camera.

If you’re looking to save some money, it’s a no-brainer to go with the Canon 6D as both cameras are amazing when it comes to both still and video. If price isn’t an issue, go with the 5D MIII as it doesn’t fall short in any of it’s features, the dual memory card slots are clutch for the security in backing up your shots.

Take a look at the video if you’re still wondering which DSLR is best for you. In a little over nine minutes, Caleb (the photographer in the video) offers great insight and feedback on his experience and analysis of both bodies. As a photographer in the market for an update, definitely share which you prefer and why?
