Canon finally released the sequel to its 6D, making sure it included all the upgrades photographers have been wanting for some time now. For that reason, the 6D Mark II makes a powerful, good-to-have gear; only… we’d hoped it didn’t ignore one crucial thing: 4K video #fotomagic
Yep, you can count on the 6D Mark II to do an awesome job when it comes to still pictures. But video still isn’t its forte, at least in the sense of offering the biggest resolution customers have come to accept: 4K. You’ll have to stick to a 1080p at 60 frames per second.
Now, if you’re more inclined towards photography, instead of videography, then this omission might not be as devastating as it sounds. Like we said, there are plenty updates that fill that gap. The latest 6D comes with a brand new 26.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and Canon’s top-notch DIGIC 7 image processor. The company also equipped it with their super fast Dual Pixel autofocus system, granting it 45 cross-type autofocus points.
On the upgraded internals list is featured a bigger ISO range of up to 40,000, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth, and GPS. On the exterior of the body, you’ll find a touchscreen attached that swivels out to the side.
The curious thing here is Canon managed to elevate the 6D series without adding more than a few grams to the overall weight of the camera. But the best thing remains the price, as it was the case of its predecessor. The full-frame camera will sell in July for $1,999 (just the body).
