Canon EOS M6 Mark II Key Features

  • 32.5MP MOS (APS-C) sensor
  • DIGIC 8 image processor
  • 14 fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking
  • 4K UHD 30p and Full HD 120p video
  • 3.0-inch touch panel LCD screen with tilt option

What we like:

  • Excellent image quality in Raw and JPEG
  • Good level of direct control
  • Compact but still feels good in the hand
  • Responsive, simple user interface
  • Effective AF system that requires minimal user-intervention
  • 4K Video with effective digital stabilization options (though at significant cost to quality)
  • USB charging is convenient
  • Good burst speed (up to 14 fps, or 7 with live view)
  • Well-controlled rolling shutter

What we don’t:

  • 4K video much less detailed than rivals
  • AF Tracking point will occasionally wander off your chosen subject
  • Eye detection only works at fairly close range and can tend to fractionally front-focus (on eyelashes)
  • Relatively limited system unless you mount large, adapted lenses
  • Requires high-power (probably PD-compliant) charger for USB charging
  • No headphone socket
  • Auto ISO threshold only accessible via main menu
  • No flat or Log profile to exploit potential of claimed 10-bit output

From DPReview Conclusion:

The Canon EOS M6 Mark II is a very capable camera that’s now supported by a reasonable range of EF-M lenses. Improved autofocus and refined ergonomics make it a likeable and engaging camera to shoot with.

$100 off on Canon EOS M6 Mark II with 15-45mm Lens and EVF: $999 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
