This is a basic feature listing for the Canon EOS D6000 / Kodak DCS 560.

Canon EOS D6000 / Kodak DCS 560:

The fourth EOS digital camera, the D6000 was the final joint venture with Kodak and was also marketed under the name Kodak DCS 560. The camera was essentially a modified EOS 1N chassis with electronics designed by Kodak added on. Its image output was pretty good for the time - 6 megapixels - though the camera was significantly smaller and lighter than its predecessor. It also eschewed the antiquated SCSI interface for the more modern FireWire (IEEE 1394).

There are a lot of blank spaces in this page because not a lot of information is published about this camera, as not many were sold. Flash metering information in particular is fairly non-existent, though interestingly it seems to have supported E-TTL flash, even though the EOS 1N did not. If the EV specifications look a bit strange, it's because Canon have supplied the data for ISO 200, not ISO 100 as on just about every other EOS camera.

Though slow and with a limited ISO range, it's actually still a moderately useful camera today. Also, its infrared-cutting filter is removable, making it handy for IR photography, and it has a self-contained intervalometer like the EOS 10/10S.

Product names

A note about names. The reason certain camera bodies may have multiple names is because Canon often use different model names for different regional markets. This usually applies only to consumer and some midrange products, and mainly to the USA and Japan. Whereas the international name is usually just a number or number/letter combination, the USA name will often be some cool or tough-sounding name such as “Rebel”. Canon Japan, on the other hand, typically use cute marketing names such as “Kiss” for their consumer products. Under certain rare circumstances there may be actual differences between the differently named products. For example, Japanese versions of the product may support wireless remotes whereas other versions may not.

I generally organize the information by the European/Australasian name, since it’s usually a logical numeric system. Basically, the fewer the digits the more expensive the camera. Thus the 1000 cameras are consumer, the 100 cameras are advanced amateur, the 10, 5 and 3 cameras are semi-professional and the 1 cameras are professional. The terms “consumer” and “professional” aren’t judgement terms here - just Canon’s descriptions of the market segments to which the cameras are aimed.
