Canon India, in a launch that took place on Monday, has given photographers across the country a reason to rejoice. The company has come out with the EOS 6D Mark II, which is going to be a further addition to the line containing full frame EOS DSLR cameras.
The camera has a number of different pricings for different versions of itself. The camera body itself is priced at INR 132,995, while it costs INR 184,995 for the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens and INR 202,995 for the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens.
The pricing, however, can be justified by the incredible features that the camera displays. It has a full frame CMOS sensor of 26.2MP to deliver clear images under the worst possible lighting conditions. It also has a 7560 pixel metering sensor of RGB+IR, a 3 inch LCD vari angle touch screen monitor and is also equipped with a color detection AF.
According to the of Consumer Imaging and Information Centres Vice President, Eddie Udagawa, these features are going to allow the users to experience full frame imaging in interesting and new ways that they have not experienced before.
The camera also has a feature that allows focus tracking of high performance in the Live View mode. This is based on the technology of Dual Pixel CMOS AF. The camera is also equipped with a movie function called 4K Time-lapse which combines still images that have been shot at different intervals of time.
It has an optional battery grip, BG-E21, which contains 2 pieces of the LP-E6N batteries. This battery can be used to shoot for more hours without needing to charge the camera all over again.
The camera also a cross type auto focus system of 45 points and a Dual Pixel autofocus that helps in live shooting. The ISO range is between 100-40000, the camera shoots 6.5 frames per second and also has a DIGIC 7 image processor. The camera is also resistant to dust and water, has a built in flash and supports Bluetooth.
The best part about this camera is probably that it allows its users to transfer all the images and videos thanks to its connectivity to the NFC and WiFi. The images and videos can then be uploaded onto the cloud, social media platforms or the Canon Image Gateway.
The President and the CEO of Canon, Kazutada Kobayashi, has said that the company is hopeful that the numbers in the DSLR segment are going to increase by more than 50% by the end of the year.
“At Canon, we have always focused on providing a cutting-edge technology to our customers with our innovative offerings. Building on the legacy of its predecessor the EOS 6D, we are for the first time making an articulating LCD on a full-frame DSLR camera,” his statement said.
The camera is going to go on sale towards the end of this month and we cannot wait to see if the features match up to our Canon worthy expectations.
