Step up into the full-frame game with the EOS 6D Mark II DSLR Camera from Canon. Making high-performance full-frame imaging more accessible, the 6D Mark II makes numerous advancements over its predecessor to improve upon every aspect of image capture and creation. The main update comes in the form of a 26.2MP CMOS sensor and the use of the DIGIC 7 Image Processor to deliver sharper, more vivid imagery in a variety of shooting situations. This setup offers an improved native sensitivity range of ISO 100-40000, which can then be expanded to ISO 50-102400, as well as speedy shooting rates of up to 6.5 fps.

Ensuring your images are tack sharp is a 45-point all-cross type AF system, which is able to track subjects with accuracy. This marks a significant improvement over its predecessor and will result in faster acquisition of your subject. Along with a revamped AF system, the sensor features Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology to provide a boost to focusing in live view and video shooting, which itself has been bumped up to Full HD at 60p. This setup works well with the 3" 1.04m-dot vari-angle touchscreen LCD, which permits use at various angles and with intuitive controls.

For hybrid stills/video shooters, you will enjoy the enhanced video quality as well as the ability to plug in an external mic via a 3.5mm input. Users will also have the ability to create 4K time-lapse movies as well as HDR video with dedicated settings and modes. Additionally, the body design has received an upgrade with improved ergonomics and durability, including dust and water resistance. Users will have access to many connectivity options as well, such as Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth, for connecting to a smart device, and built-in GPS for geotagging your photos.

26.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 7 Image Processor
Offering boosts to both resolution and low-light performance, the 6D Mark II uses a newly developed 26.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor that works in tandem with a DIGIC 7 Image Processor to create sharp, vivid imagery and video. This contributes to high performance in low light with native sensitivity range of ISO 100-40000, which can then be expanded to ISO 50-102400, if desired.

Assisting with the capture of properly exposed images is a 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor that helps minimize the impact of flickering lights in your images and ensures accurate reading of the entire scene.
45-Point All-Cross Type AF and Dual Pixel CMOS AF Systems
Ensuring your subject is tack sharp, the 6D Mark II incorporates an all-cross type AF system, which offers 45 phase-detect points, for advanced tracking and focusing while using the optical finder for stills. This AF system can operate in lighting conditions as low as -3 EV and will work with various lenses with maximum aperture of f/8 and smaller, though with a maximum of 27 points. Five different AF area selection modes are available as well, for optimizing performance to your subject matter.

When using Live View and recording video, you can now use Dual Pixel CMOS AF on the actual imaging sensor. This offers wide coverage of phase-detection autofocus for faster and more accurate focusing in these modes. It is ideal for video as users will enjoy smoother rack focusing without the downsides normally encountered with contrast-based systems. Also, this works well with the touchscreen functions, allowing shooters to just tap to adjust focus.
Full HD Video Recording
For multimedia creation, the 6D Mark II comes equipped with powerful Full HD video recording options. The 6D Mark II offers improved speed with a maximum frame rate of 60p when capturing Full HD video. It also offers Digital IS with 5-axis image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. This benefits recording while walking or moving, and can also be used in conjunction with lenses featuring optical IS for more effective overall stabilization. Audio is high quality as well, with the ability to use either the built-in microphone or an external microphone via a 3.5mm input.
Body Design
  • A large 3.0" 1.04m-dot vari-angle LCD monitor is available for bright, vivid image playback and live view shooting, and its touchscreen interface features an anti-smudge design and can be used for intuitive touch-to-focus control and adjusting settings in the menus.
  • A single SD card slot is available for saving photos and video.
  • Optical viewfinder offers approximately 98% coverage of the frame and has a magnification of 0.71x.
  • The durable body design is dust- and weather-sealed to permit working in harsh environments.
Other Camera Features
  • A built-in GPS module allows you to geotag imagery in-camera as well as auto time sync with the Universal Time Code via satellites. This module is compatible with American GPS, Russian GLONASS, and Japanese quasi-zenith Michibiki satellites for a wide coverage of support.
  • A built-in intervalometer permits the creation of UHD 4K time-lapse imagery and supports recording consecutive frames in pre-selected intervals.
  • Bluetooth permits linking a smartphone or tablet for quick image sharing between devices as well as remote control capabilities.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity enable wireless sharing, control, and image transfer with a compatible smart device as well as the CS100 Connect Station.

As a long time Canon user, this camera ticks all of the boxes I was hoping for in terms of feel, quality and ease of use. Coming from other Canon products the menus were easy enough to maneuver and everything was where you would expect it to be. The camera takes stunning photos in both dark and bright conditions and is extremely clear.

Sports Photography AND Low Light Capabilities? You BET!

By Steve

I got mine as an upgrade/replacement for the workhorse 7D Mark ii I'd been using for sports photography for a couple years (and over 200k shutter actuations!). This is a HUGE upgrade, especially in low light conditions! It arrived in a Friday and, after a couple settings, put it to work the next day with NO issues. My keeper rate was over 90% so I HAD to choose the best of the best. The next week I was driving through New Mexico and stopped at a town that was once on US Route 66 and snagged a few shots of some of the abandoned house. Again, keeper rate was in the 90% range...100% in low light! (I prefer to shoot in natural light). The file size is big enough to allow for some cropping when using a zoom lens at longer focal range. This IS a full frame after all! I'd been putting off adding new glass to my kit. I have even more reason now. Attached images were from a 30 minute excursion around and into some of the abandoned houses in one of the towns lost to Interstate 40 in New Mexico. All shot with natural light with minimal post adjustments to exposure, contrast and a Monochrome conversion.

Love it so much I bought a second for a backup

I love this camera. I have two. I keep a lens on both for weddings and events. I shoot 100% manual. It provides sharp, high res, images and has all the features I need. I shoot over 50 sessions a year. My photog small business is only part-time as I have a fulltime job. I can shoot an 8 hour wedding with the dual battery pack, easy. It handles portraits as easily as it handles action. Low light, no problem. Can't say enough good things about it.

Great size, beautiful photos. Canon 6D Mark II has passed my expectations. Price, form factor, excellent photos. Extremely happy with my purchase. Would recommend for all DSLR photographers wanting to get into full frame photography!

After years of using a hand me down Nikon D80, I saved up to purchase a full-frame sensor camera as my professional work had increased in demand and I wanted something nicer for my personal work as well. It's been just over a year (conveniently right after the warranty expired) and I get an Err20 message indicating a mechanical malfunction (I noticed another user's camera displayed a similar mechanical malfunction). I now have to pay for repairs after taking impeccable care of this camera - it has never been dropped, bumped or exposed to harsh weather conditions. I don't even switch the lens or expose the mirror since I'm only working with the 24-105mm that came with this bundle. It's just incredibly disheartening to me because this was a difficult expense that I thought would be well worth it, but after breaking down on me (in the middle of a shoot) I feel quite frustrated and discouraged with this choice.

No, Canon EF-S lenses cannot be adapted to the Canon EOS 6D Mark II DSLR Camera. Canon EF-S lenses have a protrusion at the rear of the lens that does not allow them to be mounted on Canon Full Frame cameras.

Updating my 7D - Im basically a landscape person - and wanted to get into full frame - many people are telling me the 5Dmkiv is the way to go - but Im finding sticker shock - like I said Im upgrading my 7D - I have 2 really good ef lenses - 70-200 f4 and 24-105 - I have the crop canon 10-22 that I use mostly for landscape- so if I went full frame Id need to upgrade that lens - now that looking like a $4300 upgrade verse a 2800 upgrade if I get the 6Dmkii - I dont do video - so is the 6Dmkii a good option ? Im looking for a camera to last me at least 6 yrs- thanks
Asked by: John F.
Actually, if price were no object and you wish to wring every pixel in creating your landscapes, you would be considering the Canon EOS 5DS DSLR Camera (Body Only) B&H # CAE5DS. With a 50.6MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and with your excellent Canon L lenses, that would the better combination I think for landscapes. However, that does not answer your issue. For that, I would suggest considering either the 6D Mark II or the original 6D. Both of these have excellent full frame sensor that look just about as good as the 5D line. Basically, what the 5D has over the 6D is pro level ruggedness, weatherproofing and features that mean more for those using them for money on a daily basis. I have two 6D's and do a lot of shooting outside. I have nothing but praise for the image quality and I am fine with the build quality. They do whatever I need to do.
