Canon’s Much Awaited 6D Mark II Fails To Live Up To Expectations
Almost every photographer had been eagerly awaiting the launch of the Canon 6D Mark II and finally, Canon has launched their 6D Mark II and Rebel SL2 digital cameras!
Both look like solid new additions to their existing lineup.
Both camera’s look exceptional, especially the 6D as it has been in the news for quite some time and everybody had spread almost every possible rumor about is features. However, the camera is missing one important feature – the ability to shoot a 4K video. ☹
The Canon 6D Mark II is priced at $1,999 and is an upgrade of the 2012 Canon 6D. The 6D was a huge success and is still preferred over the 5D because of its outstanding AF points and fantastic design. It is somewhat cheaper and also capable of taking full-frame shots, just like the Canon 5D.
Now let’s talk about the entrant’s features.
The Canon 6D Mark II is juiced up with a 26.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and has Canon’s most advanced image processor, the DIGIC 7 installed. The high-end ISO range, however, ranges from 40,000 to 32,000 which isn’t much to write home about considering it isn’t much of an upgrade from the previous version.
The 6D Mark II also has the Canon ultra-fast Dual Pixel autofocusing system, along with a 45 cross-type autofocus point at its disposal, which is a step up from the 6D’s paltry 11. It has a shooting capacity of 6.5 frames per second, with the maximum burst being 21 frames for RAW photos, and 150 for JPEGs.
