EOS 6D Mark II
CANON PRESS RELEASE
29 June 2017
Realise your creative vision with the latest
generation full-frame DSLR camera
Canon has today unveiled the highly anticipated EOS 6D Mark II, the latest addition to Canon’s full frame DSLR line up, designed for both passionate hobbyist and professional photographers.
Successor to Canon’s EOS 6D, the EOS 6D Mark II features Canon’s latest generation technologies and is designed for a range of specialist photography categories, from travel to portraits. It offers huge advancements to users allowing greater shooting possibilities, additional control and flexibility to achieve their photography vision.
The EOS 6D Mark II has been developed following feedback from users, and as such, will enable photographers to go beyond their limits as they take their creations further. With its new full frame 26.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor, DIGIC 7 processor, 45 point AF system and Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, the EOS 6D Mark II delivers the highest quality images fulfilling the needs of both professionals and hobbyists alike.
Push the boundaries with the latest generation technology
With a new 26.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor, the EOS 6D Mark II offers unrivalled image quality and improved performance.
Its high dynamic range ensures exceptional exposure latitude so users can push boundaries when shooting in bright light conditions.
The improved ISO 40,000, expanding to ISO 102,400, allows flexibility so documentary photographers can snap scenes with the confidence that details will be retained even in the darkest nights.
The latest DIGIC 7 processor creates high quality files straight from the camera.
With the EOS 6D Mark II users can achieve greater control over their creative vision thanks to the 45 point AF system, which can be customised and allows more precise tracking.
Alongside DIGIC 7’s image processing advancements, the EOS 6D Mark II can predict the movement of a subject across the frame and respond rapidly. When combined with the 6.5 fps, the EOS 6D Mark II opens a whole new range of possibilities.
The EOS 6D Mark II’s new AF system retains the ability to accurately lock onto subjects even in the lowest lighting, perfect for portraits in diminishing ambient lights.
Canon’s renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology allows for high performance tracking as well as smoother focusing, and shorter focusing times, for movies. These features are a great advantage for shooting macro and product photography aided by the Live View screen.
The EOS 6D Mark II is the first full frame EOS camera to include built-in 5-axis movie stabilisation that counteracts shake when footage is captured hand-held and on-the-move.
The vari-angle LCD touch-screen allows users to switch focus at the tap of the screen and reach tricky angles when shooting unusual perspectives or in a crowd.
Offering even smarter connectivity, the EOS 6D Mark II boasts Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for an always on connection. Giving users even more flexibility when transmitting images to smart devices, users can easily share their work to speed up their workflow. Its capabilities allow photographers to control their camera from their smartphone to shoot images or video remotely; advantageous for users cautious of distracting their subject with movement, such as a resting butterfly. The built-in GPS keeps track of location, allowing you to automatically chronicle the destinations in which you create your stories.
The EOS 6D Mark II is a compact and lightweight full frame DSLR camera. It is resistant to dust and moisture, making it ideal for on-the-go shooting whilst offering top performance to complement users’ needs.
The EOS 6D Mark II is the first camera from Canon to have both 4K time-lapse movie mode and intervalometer for more diverse movie making. Getting creative is made even easier and capturing footage in up to 4K resolution is ideal for shooting star-scapes in brilliant detail. The built-in intervalometer gives users maximum possibilities when editing their time-lapse movies.
BATTERY GRIP BG-E21
BG-E21 is a bespoke battery grip for EOS 6D Mark II which can hold two battery packs simultaneously, and is compatible with both LP-E6N and LP-E6 battery packs. By improving the camera’s battery life BG-E21 doubles the number of possible shots. BG-E21 replicates the buttons of the top right body of EOS 6D Mark II. This means that the camera can be used in exactly the same way when shooting vertically, ensuring the ergonomics is not hindered. Users will also help to provide better handling and balance when shooting with heavier lenses.
