- Dual Pixel CMOS AF
- Digital Image Stabilization, 4K Time-Lapse Movies
- Great Video/Photo Hybrid System
The Canon EOS 6D Mark II Digital SLR improves on its predecessor, the Canon 6D, with fast and accurate continuous autofocusing thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which allows you to stay locked onto subjects that are moving for both stills and video and gives video shooters the added benefit of smoother rack focusing capabilities. Additionally, the number of AF points increased from 11 to 45, allowing you to track fast subjects more accurately throughout the frame and you can select focus with the 3" fully articulating touch sensitive LCD. For still shooters, the FPS shooting speed increased from 4.5 to 6.5. Max native ISO also received a boost from 25,600 to 40,000 with improved signal-to-noise ratio.
The 6D Mark II maintains built-in WiFi and GPS as well as essential videography ports, like a 3.5mm microphone jack. Also benefiting video shooters is Digital IS with 5-axis image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake while walking or moving. It can be used in conjunction with lenses featuring optical IS for even more overall stabilization. This is also a boon for still photographers of events, especially in low light. While not fully weather sealed, this camera increased its robustness since its first iteration and now has full sealing on the battery compartment cover, card slot cover, lens mount, terminal covers, and buttons. It is dust and moisture resistance on the rest of the body. The Canon 6D Mark II is a versatile camera that offers a bit of everything while sacrificing as little as possible: Full HD shooting, continuous AF performance, low light sensitivity, build-in IS, a fast enough shooting speed for most action sequences, and full connectivity – all with a full frame sensor. This camera is ideal for event shooters, especially those who need to shoot both stills and video footage.
