Canon EOS 6D Mark II

 

The Canon EOS 6D Mark II improves upon its predecessor with 26-megapixel resolution, improved Live View focus, and a 45-point autofocus system, but its sensor isn't as good as competing models.

Full-frame 26-megapixel image sensor. 45-point autofocus system. Dual Pixel AF in Live view. 6.5fps continuous shooting. Vari-angle LCD. Integrated Wi-Fi and GPS.

More image noise than expected. Limited dynamic range for full-frame. Small AF coverage area. Video limited to 1080p. Omits built-in flash.

The Canon 6D Mark II has some things going for it that competing models don't. It offers the most resolution, by a little bit, of any entry-level full-frame model, sports an in-camera GPS, and it's the only one in its class with a vari-angle touch LCD....

Canon EOS 6D Mark II

 

Does impressive full frame DSLR image quality in a light, compact, nicely-featured body with a very modest price tag sound good to you?The Canon EOS 6D Mark II might be your camera.

Canon positions the EOS 6D Mark II as a step-up from an APS-C model or as an entry-level DSLR for those who know the light-capturing value of a full frame sensor's significantly larger surface area.Many professionals will recognize the value...

Canon 6D Mark II Review

 

While familiar in appearance, the Canon 6D Mark II brings a lot of improvements over its wildly popular predecessor. At the heart of the 6D II is a new 26-megapixel sensor and a DIGIC 7 image processor. These combine for good image quality and...

Great vari-angle touchscreen; Dual Pixel CMOS AF; Good image quality in most situations; Impressive performance for its class

Disappointing dynamic range; No 4K video; Optical viewfinder comes up short; Narrow AF point coverage through viewfinder

This summer, Canon released the successor to its very popular entry-level full-frame 6D camera. The Canon 6D Mark II was several years in the making and we have put the camera through its full paces. In many ways, the 6D II is a very good full-frame...

I still want to give the camera a go myself but the dynamic range results are incredibly dissapointing to me. I just expected more out of this camera, which seems to echo DP Review’s sentiments in its review. You can read the full review here at DP...

The Canon 6D Mark II May Not Be the Camera We Were Hoping For

 

I was pretty pumped with the Canon 6D Mark II was announced. It wasn't announced with a lot of fanfare for its video quality and there was no 4K video under the hood. However, it looked like THE full frame camera to have if you were a serious...

You are right. There is no 4K. But I use my camera for still pictures only. So that is not an issue for me.

Canon 6D Mark II Officially Unveiled

 

The Canon 6D Mark II is officially here and it's almost everything we hoped it would be. The original Canon 6D went a long way to making the full frame DSLR format more accessible than previously possible. The 6D Mark II carries that mantle forward...

Very weird, which ever way you want to look at it. If Canon didn’t want to “improve” video performance on the 6D2, they could at least have kept it the same as the old one.
