As ever with Canon, the 6D Mark II isn’t a big wow camera release with groundbreaking features, it’s more understated, really it’s a camera that provides the enthusiast photographer with a piece of kit that’s going to meet their needs.
There’s already been some quibbling online about how the specs of this new Canon EOS 6D Mark II aren’t as good as many people expected. For instance, there’s no 4K video, some are asking if the resolution is really high enough and shouldn’t that flip screen detach so you can use it as a separate liveview remote?
Canon has been in the game long enough to know that there would be a barrage of questions about the specifications and features, with many feeling that the Mark II doesn’t offer enough. But at the UK event, as ever David Parry was there to preempt those questions.
After speaking to him it was very clear that the Canon 6D Mark II is a camera aimed directly at the enthusiast. It is not an enthusiast pro-level crossover camera, nor does it aspire to be. It is a camera that anyone can use to go out and capture great images.
In between the announcement, checking out the camera and chomping through most of provided canapes – the micro burgers especially – I managed to catch up with David Parry and ask him to give me a quick run through of the new camera.
It’s was great to catch up with David and find out his view on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II. As he says in the video, it would be great to get some feedback from you about your thoughts on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II.
I’ll be catching up with David soon about the reaction to the camera, so if you have any questions then please let me know in the comments below.
