Canon EOS 6D Mark II review

 

Canon's enthusiast-focused full-frame DSLR gets an overhaul

Excellent Live View focusing ; Comfy grip ; Refined touchscreen control ; Useful vari-angle display ; Connectivity options

Only 98% viewfinder coverage ; Absence of 4K a disappointment ; Limited AF coverage ; Poor dynamic range ; No USB 3.0

Canon has certainly made the EOS 6D Mark II a more well-rounded and better specified camera than the EOS 6D, but it's not without its issues. These niggles dull what is otherwise a very nice full-frame DSLR that's a pleasure to shoot with. It will...

Canon EOS 6D Mark II review: One of the most versatile full-frame DSLR cameras

 

If you've been thinking about buying a full-frame DSLR but have been waiting for some of the more modern technologies – touchscreen control, a

Vari-angle screen is useful and live view better than Nikon's offering ; Smaller and lighter than similar full-frame models ; Finds a resolution sweet-spot

Only 98% viewfinder coverage ; Continued absence of 4K movie capture ; It's still a big and heavy camera to cart around

Overall the Canon EOS 6D Mark II is one of the most balanced full-frame propositions on the market. We find its new sensor to be just about the perfect balance of resolution, while the vari-angle touchscreen is a huge benefit that lacks from so many...

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 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 Expert Review

 

We review the new Canon EOS 6D Mark II, the long awaited update to the 6D, with a new 26mp Full-Frame sensor, and vari-angle touch-screen.

The Canon EOS 6D Mark II gives increased resolution compared to the 6D it replaces, with no reduction in noise performance. You also get great colour reproduction, and an easy-to-use menu system and controls. There's also a welcome update to the number...

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 Review

 

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...
