Charles, if you check out www.dummies.com it will tell you how to do it.


I hope this helps?

        I can't find anything about mirror lock up in the www.dummies.com. Does it even have a mirror lock up?

 

On my old 50 D it had one. But I can't find nowhere to engage it on the 6D.

Go to menu, navigate to shooting settings 2 tab, highlight mirror lockup and press set.

 

I've read shooting in "Live View" is an even better option to reduce vibration.

 

Hope this helps.

This might be better...

As Doug says, it is in the shooting settings (looks like a camera icon) 2 tab. In the 6D manual, it is described on p.165. You can read the manual here:

I'm not sure why you pointed him to the 60D page on that dummies website, Doug, but most Canon DSLRs do seem to be very similar in this type of operation.
