Canon 6D Mark II full frame dSLR

Introduction

specs

  • new 26.2MP CMOS full frame sensor with Dual Pixel AF for Live View mode which provides 80% vertical and lateral coverage, and the option to set focus point by touch - a better AF experience than in optical mode except the lenses are not optimised for this.
  • weathersealed
  • ISO 100-40000 (expands to 50-102400)
  • DIGIC 7 processor
  • 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor
  • optical viewfinder 98% coverage, 0.71x magnification
  • fully articulated 3“ 1,040,000 dot LCD touch screen at last (a 1st for a Canon full frame dSLR)
  • still no sensor based image stabiliser
  • being an “entry level” full frame dSLR, compared with its peers it has been crippled by:
    • poor dynamic range sensor
    • 45 PDAF AF points in optical mode and they are all near the centre of the frame but at least they are all cross-type (the 6D only had 11 points)
    • burst rate only 6.5fps (the 6D only had 4.5fps)
    • flash sync speed only 1/180 sec
    • exposure bracketing limited to ±3 (3 frames at 1/3 EV, 1/2 EV steps)
    • shutter speed only to 1/4000th sec
    • no 4K video, only 1080HD 24-60p MPEG-4, H.264 video
    • SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot - only one sot and only UHS-I
    • only USB 2.0 not USB 3.0
    • no focus peaking
  • 765 g (1.69 lb / 26.98 oz)
  • 144 x 111 x 75 mm (5.67 x 4.37 x 2.95″)
  • built-in GPS, 4K timelapse recording
  • WiFi, Bluetooth
  • LP-E6N lithium-ion battery rated at 1200 shots (CIPA) & charger
  • $US1999 (body only)
