Canon EOS 6D Mark II has possibly been the most awaited Canon reflex camera this year. For many users, it has also become the greatest disappointment of the year. The first version of the camera, which was a hit in 2012, proved to be useful in almost every form of photography. It was also commonly used by video-makers. That's why the expectations were very high, especially taking into consideration the fact that 6D fans have waited for an upgrade for almost 5 years.
The heart of a new Canon is 26-megapixel CMOS sensor, supported by the DIGIC7 processor, which is the fastest one in the producer's offer. Thanks to such a combination, we can take photographs with ISO sensitivity reaching 40.000 (expanded to 102.400) and the speed of 6.5 f/s.
1). Canon EOS 6D Mark II
The camera, such as 5D Mark IV, has been equipped with a 45-points AF system (all cross-type points). What's more, in Live View mode we will be able to use a highly-rated Dual Pixel AF system, based on phase-detection sensor pixels.
On the outside, the camera looks almost identical to its predecessor. A novelty in the design is a rotating 3'' LCD touch screen with the resolution of 1.04 Mp, which will surely make filmmakers happy.
2). Canon EOS 6D Mark II
Apart from that, the camera is equipped with wireless communication module (Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth) and GPS. The housing is, of course, sealed.
A big disappointment is the lack of dual memory card slot. The camera handles only one SD card. This slightly disqualifies it from purely professional usage, such as wedding photography.
The second issue will for sure not make filmmakers happy. The camera does not record films in 4K – we only have a possibility of recording in Full HD, with the speed of 60f/s. It's a little strange since a large group of customers is constituted by video photographers and competitive companies mount this function in all cameras within this price range.
3). Canon EOS 6D Mark II
The camera will appear on sale at the beginning of August and it will cost $1999 for the body, or $2599 and $3099 in the sets with EF 24-105mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM or EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lenses.
