The Canon EOS 6D Mark II is a versatile full-frame DSLR camera aimed at advanced enthusiasts photographers, as well as beginners hoping to take a step up from a bridge camera or pocket camera.
Building on the success of its highly popular predecessor, the weather-sealed 6D Mark II offers significant some significant upgrades, including a higher resolution 26.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and improved, yet familiar handling. The latest generation sensor in the 6D Mark II, brings with it some useful increases in performance, including greater low light photography performance, faster focusing and superior image quality compared to the previous EOS 6D.
Benefitting from Canon’s impressive Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the 6D Mark II has up to 45 cross-type AF points, with 27 points functioning at f8. This is helpful for photographers working with teleconverters to extend the reach of their telephoto lenses. Focusing is also impressive in low light conditions, with the 6D Mark II capable of focusing under illumination equivalent to moonlight (-3 EV). For creators interested in capturing action, the camera’s wide-area AF can keep up with subjects moving across the frame, shooting full resolution stills at up to 6.5fps thanks to its DIGIC 7 image processor. Just like Canon’s flagship cameras the EOS 5D Mark IV and the EOS 1D-X Mark II, the 6D Mark II can also detect the frequency of flickering lights. This helps to deliver more consistent exposures when taking pictures in indoor locations, such as sports halls for example.
People interested in activities such as gig photography, for example, or capturing indoor sports photography images will also benefit from the 6D Mark II’s improved ISO performance and noise handling capabilities. The camera now features a higher native ISO sensitivity range of ISO 100-40,000 (expandable to ISO 102,400), which will deliver more usable results when taking pictures under low light photography conditions.
Composing still images and videos with the Canon 6D Mark II is made easier due to its intelligent viewfinder, which covers 100% of the frame, allowing photographers to see active focus points and shooting information - including depth of field preview - without taking their eye away from the action. Additionally, the vari-angle 3” Clear View II LCD touch screen of the 6D Mark II has 1,040K dots, providing a crisp high resolution preview of your images or compositions during live view and video recording. The touch screen provides smartphone-like navigation and tap-to-focus control. It can also be articulated to face forward, which is ideal for group shots, selfies and vlogging.
The 6D Mark II is an approachable DSLR with intuitive controls and user-friendly menus. It’s the perfect companion for enthusiast photographers or it makes a good second body for professionals who want a more compact DSLR camera that’s compatible with EF lenses, without compromising on image quality.
