|Canon EOS-6D Mark II camera with EF EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II lens|
Canon announced the EOS-6D Mark II camera on June 29, 2017. It is in stock at most camera stores now. The original EOS-6D was intended as entry level full frame camera for those who cannot affordable the higher end models. The Mark II is no different except it has a few more bells and whistles.
- New 26MP CMOS full-frame sensor with Dual Pixel AF
- 1080/60p video capture with in-lens + digital stabilization
- 45-point all-cross-type AF system
- Dual Pixel AF for both stills and video capture
- ISO 100-40,000 (expandable to 102,400)
- 6.5 fps continuous shooting (4.5 fps in Live View)
- 3" fully articulating touchscreen
- Wi-Fi w/NFC and Bluetooth
- Built-in GPS
Those who expect too much from it will be disappointed. Those who are realistic and want a good value performer will be pleasantly surprised. DPReview did an extensive review of the EOS-6D Mark II and came up with a balanced view of the camera and I am in agreement with their findings.
Below is an excerpt from their review. Click here to read the full article.
"Canon is the world's largest camera manufacturer, and that hasn't happened by accident. Through careful research and, yes, some market segmentation, it's found a way to sell a lot of cameras that make a lot of people happy. The risk it's been running lately, though, is one of perceived stagnation; despite their continually impressive high-end offerings, many competing manufacturers are moving more quickly to bring to market products that some consumers may perceive as more 'exciting' in some form or other.
With all of that in mind, the EOS 6D Mark II is a classic Canon DSLR. Is it particularly exciting? No, but really, neither was the original 6D aside from its fairly accessible price point. What the 6D Mark II is, though, is a solid, well-built camera that is capable of producing great images while improving upon its predecessor in almost every measurable way."
