canon-6dmkii-rumor

The rumor mill has dried up. This is not unusual for the Post-Pohotokina, Post PPE time of the year and so we are left with very little bits and pieces for our gear lasting souls.

Enter the Canon 6DmkII. The latest rumors from CanonRumors give us some data to hand on to, though it is not really impressive. CR speculates-guesses-estimates that the camera will be announced in, or right after,  NAB (April), and probably starts selling a month after at May.

As for the rumored features of the Canon 6DmkII, I can’t say I am incredibly impressed.

This is what CR has on the spec list right now, from a list that has been circulating the webs:

  • 24MP or 25MP sensor (Difference between effective and actual?)
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • Dual SD card slots
  • NO 4K
  • Fully functional touch screen
  • Tilting LCD
  • New AF system
  • NFC
  • Wifi
  • GPS
  • Slightly smaller and lighter

Yes, it will be the first Canon first frame to have a touchscreen, and yes, it will probably have Dual Pixel AF, but thee is one thing it’s lacking and this is 4K video.

Does this set of rumored features excites you? I think that for a 2017 full frame camera I would love to see more on the video front.

    Geez, how come when ever a camera (primarily intended to be used for photography) is launched people either complains it doesn’t have 4K video or doesn’t support 60fps in 4K?
    It’s not easy/cheap to implement 4K videosupport. There are technical challenges, especially on large sensors. The 6D line is meant to be Canon’s “cheap” entry-model to the fullframe format…

      Seconded. However, rumours are that the new 6D will be more expensive than its predecessor.

      Why can Sony do it with all of their cameras, and Canon can’t?

    “New AF system” is the most intriguing one. I never made the jump to FF/6D because my much older crop 50D has a much better AF than 6D1. I’ll keep my fingers crossed…

    The original 6d should have been a wedding favourite with great low light focus and decent dynamic range but Canon forgot that second card slot so it fell into the “my first FF camera” spot. If Canon take their clues from Nikon’s success with the D750 this might be a decent camera. I’ve never shot a video with my DSLR so HD/4K means nothing to me but I would assume that if your business was 4K video, you’ve long since stopped shooting Canon DSLR’s
