Last month, Canon launched its new EOS 6D Mark II Full Frame DSLR globally and now its available in India for Rs 1,32,995. The company has claimed that this new device is way more powerful than its predecessor but the sad part is, the camera still can record a maximum of 1080p videos.
As far as specifications are concerned, this Canon full-frame entry level device gets a 26.2MP CMOS sensor, very improved DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO ranges 100-40000 (expandable to ISO 50 and ISO 102400). It has Dual Pixel CMOS AF with phase-detection, which is an incredible thing for a camera as it makes it more accurate and fast. Additionally, the device has built in GPS, NFC, Bluetooth, Wi Fi support to share photos directly from the camera.
Coming to other features, the 6D Mark II also has a 3.0 inch rotatable TFT display, which is a handy feature if you prefer recording videos than capturing still images. With 6D Mark II, Canon has tried to make the UI more user-friendly with more language support, easily accessible menu etc. Now, using this DSLR you can shoot up to 6.5 frames per second, which is a decent speed.
Now, the 6D Mark II can also capture full HD (1080p) video at 60 fps, which is a pretty decent but still people will miss the 4K video recording capability. Now, experts believe that the company intentionally ignored 4K capability, as it would affect the sale of 5D Mark IV, which supports 4K video recording.
The device gets a price tag of Rs 1,32,995, but remember it’s the cost of the body only. If you want this with Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens then the cost goes to Rs. 1,84,995 and if want with Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM II lens then the price becomes Rs. 2,02,995.
