Canon’s Upgraded Full Frame Camera Revs up Video Shooting Capabilities

June 30, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Canon is up with their new camera upgrade to soothe all the anticipation. The company has announced the new Canon 6D Mark II camera, the successor to the Canon 6D Mark launched in 2012 that is also the cheapest full frame camera from the company.

With the successor, Canon is attempting to take off the drawbacks off its successor and it appears that the company has done a decent job in that prospect. One of the main flaws resided in its static display that provided zero articulation. However, the 6D Mark II will replace that with an articulated display that will better aid users in shooting videos.

The 6D Mark II also gets an upgrade in terms of autofocusing, with 45 point autofocus replacing the 11 point autofocus in the predecessor. This should help users to better grab heavy action videos. Canon’s autofocus will be aided by a 26.2 megapixel sensor.

That said Caonon’s upgrades have in particular given a focus on improving the video shooting abilities. However, Canon has left a few areas untouched like having the 4K support omitted. For Canon, the 4K still remains a heavy format for an entry level full frame camera. The 6D Mark II also misses out on a dual slot for SD.

The Canon 6D Mark II will retail at $2000 which is less than the price for which the 6D was launched. Canon will start shipping the camera next month. Alongside, Canon has also upgraded EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR. The new Rebel SL2 will feature an improved sensor along with 9 autofocus point at a price of $550 for body alone.
