Canon EOS 6D Mark II Introduction
The competition in the field of photography is increasing day by day. Previously, it was not so, because only few people were indulged in this profession, but after the commercialization of photographs, a sudden increase of millions of photographers has been noticed.
This is also because, today we want to capture each and every moment like weddings, parties, thrilling moments, picnics etc. Apart from this, there is a need of photographers in every field like movies, functions, advertisements and also in the field of investigation. It is a wide field, which we can’t count on our finger tips.
And thus, camera companies are also in head to head competition with each other. No one wants to miss the opportunity of attracting buyers/photographers towards themselves, each company has a huge list of DSLR cameras according to the need of buyer.
We all are looking for better camera but its not an easy task to find a good camera from thousands of cameras of different ranges. Let’s make this task easier with Canon’s EOS 6D Mark II, which is one of the latest full frame DSLR cameras released in July 2017.
Canon EOS 6D Mark 2 is one of the best budget DSLR cameras of EOS series, which is one of the first choice of professional photographers. It is also known as the lower version of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.
Why Canon EOS 6D Mark II is better than the other cameras of same range: –
Canon EOS 6D Mark 2, comes with the full frame CMOS sensor of 26.2 MP, which offers a better and improved resolution over 20.2 mega-pixels chip of previous DSLR cameras of EOS 6D series or 22.3 mega-pixels EOS 5D mark III.
This new CMOS sensor is pretty much helpful in bringing a sensitivity in ISO. Canon EOS 6D Mark 2 has a wide range of ISO ranging from 100-40,000 to 50-102,400, which is quite similar to the DSLR cameras, we have compared above.
Canon EOS 6D Mark II works on latest fast processing engine of DIGIC 7, which is 14 times faster than Canon EOS 6D Mark 1, which works on DIGIC 5, this also helps in managing noise cancellation. The only thing, which I think is that, Canon EOS 6D Mark 2 should have been given with 4K recording, currently it is capable of recording full HD videos.
The compatibility of this camera with your smart devices with three different connecting options like Wi-Fi, NPC and Bluetooth makes it more premium, Now, you can share all of your photographs within a fraction of second with Wi-Fi.
How Canon EOS 6D Mark II gives a new touch to your photography skills: –
The thing, which makes it pretty beneficial and also a good model for photography is its light and compact design. Yes, Canon EOS 6D Mark 2 is light in weight in comparison to the other cameras of EOS series like Canon EOS 5D Mark IV or EOS 5D Mark III.
Light weight of camera makes the photography and handling easier, but in parallel light weighted camera reduces the stability while recording videos or taking far shots. Whereas this camera provides better grip in hands because of leather finish, which is quiet helpful in making camera dust and drip resistant.
The reduction in weight of EOS 6D Mark has also effected the battery back up, so if you want to increase the power of this Canon DSLR camera, you can pair it with new BG-E21 battery grip.
Auto-focus of Canon EOS 6D Mark II has been increased, but its is not capable enough to cover wide area as the other EOS DSLR cameras do. In order to focus any object you can take the help of AF selection button, which is on the right shoulder of the camera.
You can also improve your photography with the help of some selected lenses given below. Here we have listed two types of lenses, telephoto and STM lens, you can use telephoto lens to defocus the background of the image or you can say to give “bokeh” effect. Other STM (Stepper Motor Technology) lens is the self made lens of Canon, which is used to give a smoother focus at the time of video recording.
- Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 telephoto zoom lens
- Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens
- Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens
- Canon EF 85mm F/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens
- Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Telephoto Zoom Lens
