CANON 6D MARK II ANNOUNCED
Canon says the new camera “is ideal for budding photographers looking to take their creative DSLR photography skills to the next level by shooting with a Full-frame CMOS sensor DSLR camera to capture beautiful high-quality portraits and striking landscapes, even in low-light situations.”
The 6D line is designed to bridge the gap between Canon’s crop sensor DSLRs and its higher-end professional full frame DSLRs.
At the core of the new 6D Mark II is a new 26.2-megapixel, full-frame CMOS sensor, up in resolution from the 20.2MP in the original 6D. Paired with a DIGIC 7 Image Processor, the sensor can capture an ISO range of 100 to 40000 (up from 25600 in the Mark I) and do high-speed continuous shooting at up to 6.5fps (up from 4.5fps in the original 6D).
The autofocus system features 45 AF points, with all of them being cross-type points (the original 6D had 11 AF points with the center being a cross-type point). Dual Pixel CMOS AF on the sensor provides phase-detection autofocus during Full HD video recording at 60p — nope, there’s no 4K video in this camera.
