Every time a new camera is coming out, everybody wants to know what it looks like. They usually look pretty much like their predecessors, though. Canon have their own look and ergonomics, and all the other manufacturers have theirs. So, unsurprisingly, the Canon 6D Mark II looks pretty much like the Canon 6D. Nonetheless, photos of the 6D Mark II have now been leaked.

As with most leaked photos that come right before an announcement, these come courtesy of Digicame-info and Nokishita. Along with the photos, there’s some updated specs, answering a couple of questions that still remained a mystery. Specifically, that it will have built in 5-axis stabilisation, first seen in the M5, ISO 102400 (extended), and a burst rate of 6.5fps.

The updated specs seem to confirm a few things that were already rumoured. Things that we kind of expected. The dual pixel autofocus system, and that it only shoots 1080p.

  • Number of pixels: 26.2 million pixels
  • Dual pixel CMOS AF
  • AF point: 45 points cross type
  • Continuous shooting: 6.5 fps
  • Maximum ISO sensitivity: 40000 (extended ISO: 102400)
  • Video: Full HD, 5 axis electronic image stabilization
  • Rear liquid crystal: 3.0 type vari-angle angle LCD, touch panel
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Built-in GPS
  • Size: 144.0 x 110.5 x 74.8 mm
  • Weight: 765 g

The photos, though, also reveal that the 3″ vari-angle LCD isn’t just a tilting screen as it so often is with other brands. It’s a full on flippy out LCD, just like many of their other bodies.

One thing I find interesting is the inclusion of a feature that many manufacturers seem to be removing. That’s the GPS. With the built in WiFi and Bluetooth abilities, one would expect it to pull that information from a mobile device. As that just seems to be the way these days.

If it does have an independent built in GPS, though, it would be very handy for location scouting in the middle of nowhere. As well as landscape photographers who want to be able to easily find those random spots again in the future.

The addition of the flippy out LCD has increased the size and weight slightly over the 6D. But, it doesn’t outwardly appear to be all that different from the 6D. On the inside, though, it receives a few fairly significant upgrades. Way more AF points, all cross-type, faster continuous shooting, increased resolution, 5 axis image stabilisation. It’s a shame it doesn’t shoot 4K, though.

The official announcement is still expected on June 29th.

    its not the lack of 4K its the single card slot, the lack of improved ISO range, we will have to see on DR.

      Idk about you, but I’m super sad I can’t shoot at ISO 730,000 during weddings.

    The lack of 4K for video is not off putting for me, as I really don’t care that much about video. The lack of 4K in my bank account though, that is very much off putting. I’ll just keep plugging away at my nearly 10 year old 40D until it works out for me to get something newer, and even then it will probably be something used. Regardless, I would very much enjoy this camera if I was able.

    I love my 6D but I can’t justify the upgrade.
    The added AF points are great and all but I just don’t see the worth…
    Add a double card slot, more AV options and maybe we can talk

    I’m glad they added better/more focusing points, but without dual card slots, I don’t have enough reason to upgrade my 6d to the new one. When I upgrade, it will have to be to one of the 5d’s. If it had dual card slots I would be first in line.

    Looks like a competitor for the Nikon D750, specs are quite similar (proc resolution, fps, tilting screen, 1080p video) with a few differences (like GPS on the Canon, dual slot on the Nikon). I really hope the DR will be at least as good as the one on the D750 :/ (as well…this last one is 3y old :/).

    What puts me off is the use of a Canon sensor.

    1. Removing GPS would be a extremely dumb thing. I have found, that adding GPS right from the camera cuts off much work afterwards, plus using a mobile device for this isn’t save (aside from all those other problems that arise).

    2. A flip out display is invaluable. Since first reading about the 6D Mark II I wasn’t aware, that “Pro” cams doesn’t have this feature. I used a 400D fisrt, working now with a 700D and in the future, I wanted to buy a 6D (for the GPS, WiFi and full format). But only as I red about “the first full format camera with flip screen” I noticed the issue of a fixed display with all the “Pro” cams.
    In my workflow, a positionable display is extremely important as I’m no contortionist who can look at a fixed display on i.e. a upwards pointing camera, mounted on a gorilla pod, that is standing on the floor.

    3. 4k is just over hyped in my opinion.
