Canon 6D Mark II Released – A Cheaper Full-frame Camera
Today marks the release of the Canon EOS 6D Mark II camera. Dubbed the “affordable full-frame camera,” this highly anticipated camera has finally been officially released.
With its 26.2 megapixel full-frame sensor, 45 cross-type AF points, and 6.5 frames per second shooting speed, this is likely to be a popular choice amongst photographers from a wide variety of genres.
But did we mention the price? This is a full-frame camera for £1,999 ($1,999 in the USA) – that’s relatively affordable compared to a lot of the current full-frame cameras on the market.
This is also the first full-frame DSLR to come with an adjustable LCD screen. You can twist and turn it to your heart’s content, making it much easier to shoot low-angle macros – no need for a right-angle viewfinder attachment anymore (or a sore neck).
Full HD recording at 60p has the added luxury of phase-detection autofocus during video thanks to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF on the sensor, but there’s no 4K capabilities this time round.
The ISO now stretches all the way up to 40,000 (it was 25,600 on the Mark I).
So how does this perform? Here are a few sample images from Canon USA, and you can find the full resolutions on their website.
The EOS 6D Mark II will be available in July 2017 with an RRP of £1,999.99/€2,499.99 body only.
It can also be purchased with an EF 24-105 STM kit with an RRP of £2,379.99/€2,944.99.
