Canon EOS 6D Mark II review

 

Canon unveils its latest enthusiast-focused full-frame DSLR

Brand new sensor and latest engine ; Brilliant handling ; Excellent connectivity options

Viewfinder falls short of 100% coverage ; Absence of 4K likely to disappoint some ; No USB 3.0

Canon has made some significant improvements over the original 6D, with a fresh sensor, a faster processor, a more credible AF system and stronger burst rate heading a long list of changes. This is somewhat reflected in its asking price, which does...

Canon EOS 6D Mark II review

 

Canon's full-framer doesn't quite get full marks...

Produces detailed, nicely saturated images ; Weatherproof and dustproof ; Articulating touchscreen ; Very well built

No 4K video ; Only has a single card slot ; Viewfinder only has 98% coverage

A good all-rounder for Canon fans, but nothing particularly revolutionary to get excited about

Canon EOS 6D Mark II

 

The Canon EOS 6D Mark II improves upon its predecessor with 26-megapixel resolution, improved Live View focus, and a 45-point autofocus system, but its sensor isn't as good as competing models.

Full-frame 26-megapixel image sensor. 45-point autofocus system. Dual Pixel AF in Live view. 6.5fps continuous shooting. Vari-angle LCD. Integrated Wi-Fi and GPS.

More image noise than expected. Limited dynamic range for full-frame. Small AF coverage area. Video limited to 1080p. Omits built-in flash.

The Canon 6D Mark II has some things going for it that competing models don't. It offers the most resolution, by a little bit, of any entry-level full-frame model, sports an in-camera GPS, and it's the only one in its class with a vari-angle touch LCD....

Canon EOS 6D Mark II

 

Does impressive full frame DSLR image quality in a light, compact, nicely-featured body with a very modest price tag sound good to you?The Canon EOS 6D Mark II might be your camera.

Canon positions the EOS 6D Mark II as a step-up from an APS-C model or as an entry-level DSLR for those who know the light-capturing value of a full frame sensor's significantly larger surface area.Many professionals will recognize the value...

Canon EOS 6D Mark II

 

The Canon EOS 6D Mark II joins the company's fleet of DSLRs and is aimed at enthusiasts looking to upgrade to full-frame photography

Introduces vari-angle touchscreen for the first time on a full-frame EOS model ; Superior focusing speed in Live View mode thanks to Dual Pixel AF ; Offers 5-axis movie image stabilisation ; Excellent battery life

Lacks 4K video and headphone port for audio monitoring ; Upgraders can't use existing battery grip ; AF points all grouped together centrally in the frame ; Difficult to use exposure compensation with Auto ISO in manual mode

Canon DSLR’s are known for being reliable performers. After shooting with the camera for a week in the Scottish Highlands, the EOS 6D Mark II certainly lived up to my expectations.

Canon EOS 6D Mark II: Hands-on review

 

The new Canon EOS 6D Mark II is a dramatic improvement over the original.

All new, 26MP full-frame sensor ; 45-point all cross-type AF ; Dual Pixel live view AF ; 6.5 FPS continuous shooting ; Articulating touchscreen monitor

Video still limited to 1080p ; Requires different battery grip than original 6D

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Review

 

Aimed at photographers who are looking to make their first move into full-frame photography, the Canon EOS 6D Mark II follows on five years after the original 6D made its debut.

The camera market has changed significantly in the five years since the original EOS 6D was launched. These days, you can enter into the full-frame market at an affordable price via a variety of different brands, so Canon has its work cut out to make...

Canon 6D Mark II Review

 

While familiar in appearance, the Canon 6D Mark II brings a lot of improvements over its wildly popular predecessor. At the heart of the 6D II is a new 26-megapixel sensor and a DIGIC 7 image processor. These combine for good image quality and...

Great vari-angle touchscreen; Dual Pixel CMOS AF; Good image quality in most situations; Impressive performance for its class

Disappointing dynamic range; No 4K video; Optical viewfinder comes up short; Narrow AF point coverage through viewfinder

This summer, Canon released the successor to its very popular entry-level full-frame 6D camera. The Canon 6D Mark II was several years in the making and we have put the camera through its full paces. In many ways, the 6D II is a very good full-frame...
