In this article, we will be taking a look at what we feel are the best intervalometers for Canon 6d cameras currently available on the market right now. With both time-lapse and long exposure photography becoming more and more popular we have noticed an increase in people asking for advice on intervalometers for their cameras.
With the intervalometer being a minefield of dud products, we have settled on three that we feel will serve both you and your Canon 6D well. Each of the intervalometers has a very budget-friendly price tag as well as having earned an excellent reputation within the photography community over the years with some Canon 6D users using them as their current go-to intervalometer of choice.
The Pixel FSK 2.4GHz Intervalometer Wireless Shutter Remote Release
Unlike some other intervalometer on the market, the Pixel FSK is able to work with a large number of different digital cameras and mirrorless cameras. If you have additional cameras in your collection in addition to your 6d then there is a good chance that you will be able to use this with them too.
The image to the left shows the interface and control system for the intervalometer. As you can see, it is very straightforward and easy to use allowing people with little to no experience with technology to quickly pick it up and use it without issue.
The backlit LED screen allows you to use the product in low-light and nighttime conditions allowing you to take time-lapse photographs of the night’s sky with ease. The majority of the settings on the intervalometer are controlled from the directional button in the middle of the product with the button in the middle being used to select an option.
You are able to use the Pixel FSK as a remote control or remote shutter release so you don’t have to touch your camera once set and risk slightly adjusting its view and ruining your time-lapse.
As you would expect, the Pixel FSK supports key functions for an intervalometer such as a set delay timer, an interval timer, an exposure timer, a repeater interval, repeating time sets, and a set capture number. You are also able to combine multiple settings to ensure that your long exposure photograph is perfect. Once the intervalometer has been set up as required you simply plug it into your Canon 6d with the included cable and allow it to control your camera for you.
All in all, the Pixel FSK is an excellent intervalometer that is fully compatible with your Canon 6d at a very low price. It has been tried and tested by photographers all over the world and managed to come through at the other end with one of the best reputations on the market by far.
The Neewer Intervalometer Timer Remote
The Neewer Intervalometer Timer Remote has a similar reputation amongst the community with plenty of excellent third-party reviews of its performance left by independent photographers who use it as their go-to Intervalometer of choice that you can read if you like.
The image to the right shows the control system and user interface for the Neewer Intervalometer Timer Remote and it is largely based around the same simple system of the pixel. It is quick and easy to set up and offers some nice customization settings to get your Canon 6D to do exactly what you need it to do remotely.
Its core functionality is based around its interval timer, shutter switch, timer remote, and set timer. Its energy saving design means it has excellent battery life as well as the ability to help you snap photographs in its core modes of long exposure, continuous snap, and motion snaps.
One thing that we would like to point out about the Neewer Intervalometer Timer Remote is that it offers a few more settings than the pixel meaning that you are able to get more out of the Intervalometer but on the flip side someone new to technology may need a little time to learn its navigation menu. If you are newer to using technology or just want a quick and easy to use tool then we would recommend the pixel covered above over the Neewer Intervalometer.
That said though, if you are a more advanced photographer or are able to use a modern smartphone without issue then you will easily be able to find yourself around this Intervalometer and get it to do exactly what you need. In our opinion, it makes an ideal addition to your camera accessories and it retails at a very budget friendly price allowing you to pick it up without breaking the bank. Additionally, it has an excellent reputation within the community as well as a ton of independent reviews allowing you to read more about the product from third-party photographers if you wish.
