The Canon 6D Mark II is a high-performing, entry level full-frame DSLR at an attractive price. Key features include:
26.2MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 processor
100-40,000 normal ISO range
45-point all-cross type autofocus system
Full HD video capture at 60 fps
What’s New. The Canon 6D Mark II offers several marked improvements over its predecessor, the 6D. Among these are a more powerful CMOS sensor, image processor, and metering sensor; more than triple the amount of autofocus points; Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Movie Servo AF; a broader ISO range; vari-angle touchscreen rear LCD; and Full HD video capture at up to 60 fps.
26.2MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 7 Image Processor. The Canon 6D Mark II is an excellent entry-level full-frame DSLR. It’s based around a newly designed 26.2 MP CMOS sensor that works in conjunction with a DIGIC 7 image processor and 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor to produce sharp, bright images and video. Its normal ISO range of 100-40,000 is expandable to 50-102,400, ensuring stellar low-light performance.
45-Point All-Cross Type Autofocus System. The 6D II’s all-cross type autofocus system gives you 45 phase-detection points for advanced tracking and focusing. It can operate in light as low as EV -3.0, and works with lenses that have f/8 and smaller maximum apertures, albeit with a maximum of 27 points. You get a choice of five different area-selection modes so that you can choose the best autofocus functionality for the subject you’re shooting.
Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus System. When using Live View and capturing video, you can now use Dual Pixel CMOSautofocus on the imaging sensor itself. This gives you wide phase-detection autofocus coverage for faster, more accurate focusing; smoother rack focusing; and focus adjustment via the touchscreen.
Full HD Video Capture. This camera offers an array of powerful video-capture options. It’s faster than its predecessor, with a 60 fps maximum frame rate for Full HD capture, and a variety of additional frame rates to suit your needs. The five-axis digital image-stabilization system helps eliminate camera shake to keep your hand-held footage sharp. This IS system will work in conjunction with compatible lenses’ optical image stabilization for even greater effectiveness. On the audio side, you get a built-in microphone and a 3.5mm input so that you can use external mics.
High-Quality Design. The 6D II boasts a solid build in a compact package. The 3.0-inch 1.04m-dot vari-angle LCDoffers high-resolution image playback and Live View performance, and an intuitive touchscreen interface. Its optical viewfinder provides 98% frame coverage and 0.71x magnification for traditional shooting. The camera body is dust- and weather-sealed for worry-free operation even in adverse conditions.
Additional Features and Specs. The 6D II has a single SD card slot, a built-in GPS receiver, Wi-Fi and NFCconnectivity for sending images and controlling camera functions wirelessly via compatible smartphones, Bluetooth compatibility, and a built-in intervalometer that lets you create UHD 4K time-lapse imagery. It uses the same LP-E6N battery as many other Canon DSLRs, and records to SD/SDHC/XC memory cards, with full support of UHS-I class cards.
