The Canon 6D is one of the most popular cameras among Improve Photography readers. In fact, it's the third most popular camera among Improve Photography readers (following the Nikon D750 and the Canon 5D Mark III). The Canon 6D Mark II will undoubtedly be a popular camera as well.
Nokishita Camera leaked the specs of the upcoming 6D Mark II. The following are the leaked specs–compared to those of the original 6D.
|Original Canon 6D||Canon 6D Mark II||Jim's Reaction|
|20.2 megapixels||26.2 megapixels||26 megapixels is decent. It's nothing to get excited about, but adequate for most uses.|
|No dual pixel||Dual Pixel CMOS AF||Helpful|
|11 point AF||45 Cross-type AF points||THANK YOU, Canon. The focus system on the original 6D stunk.|
|4.4 frames per second||6.5 frames per second||Decent.|
|ISO 25,600 native; 102,400 interpolated||ISO 40,000 ISO native; 102,400 ISO interpolated||Ho hum. It's nice, but doesn't look to be a huge bump. We'll see when the actual images come out.|
|1080p only||1080p only||I think all of us are wondering how long Canon will keep doing this before they lose more video customers to Sony, Panasonic, and Nikon.|
|3" fixed LCD||3" Fully swiveling LCD||SO AWESOME to see a fully swiveling LCD screen. I wish every camera had this. Unfortunately, many are just tiltable.|
|Wifi, GPS||Wifi, bluetooth, and GPS||Canon is doing a good job with putting GPS in more of their cameras. THANK YOU!|
|144 x 110 x 70mm||144 x 110 x 74mm||New version is almost identical, but 4mm deeper|
|760 grams||765 grams||This is almost identical to the size and weight of the Nikon competitor D750.|
So that's the Canon 6D Mark II. Thoughts? Is this something you'd like to buy? Is Canon moving in the right direction?
