Digital Photography Cafe – 244: Canon EOS 6D Mark II – 2 Years Too Late!

[it-rotate group=”2″]


On this episode of The Digital Photography Cafe Show, we take a look at the brand new Canon EOS 6D Mark II and Canon EOS Rebel SL2.

The 6D Mark II is Canon’s latest offering in the entry level full frame market. While it includes many improvements over the original 6D such as a higher resolution of 26.2MP, 45-Point All-Cross Type AF system, and DIGIC 7 image processor, it still uses older SD card and video recording technology that makes you wonder what Canon was thinking!

The 6D Mark II shoots Full HD video at 60fps which was awesome… 2 years ago! Come on Canon… where is the 4K video?

We know not all photographers shoot video and could care less about 4K, so for those shooters, this camera is a great solution. But for those looking to purchase a great video DSLR, this camera falls short in capturing the extra resolution wanted for creative editing.

So why did Canon omit 4K from what seems like a great full frame camera? It’s pretty simple, they don’t want this lower priced body to compete with the significantly more expensive 5D Mark IV.
