Canon EOS M6 Mark II review

Performance

  • 14fps or 30fps RAW burst mode 
  • 305-shot battery life 

Going on appearances, the Canon EOS M6 Mark II may not quickly strike you as being fit to activity, sports and natural life photography, yet for a camera so small it’s really pressing some amazing specs that will speak to picture takers working in those kinds.

One such component is 14fps shooting, which exploits the sensor’s full goals, or in case you’re glad to drop down to 18-megapixel shooting, there’s a committed 30fps RAW burst mode. On the drawback, the cradle isn’t gigantic – you’ll get 54 JPEGs or 23 crude scrapes before it backs off, and a decent workaround is to set it to catch littler C-crude records, of which you’ll get 36.

The official battery rating of the EOS M6 Mark II is a genuinely unremarkable 305 shots, yet with cautious power the board you can as a rule squeeze out unmistakably more than that. Uplifting news here is that USB-C charging is close by, which is extraordinary for catalysts moving, or on the off chance that you would prefer not to pack a mess of chargers when you travel.

Image quality

  • Highest-resolution Canon APS-C sensor
  • Up to 25,600 native ISO
  • Great ‘Fine Detail’ Picture Style

The new sensor inside the EOS M6 Mark II (and without a doubt, the Canon EOS 90D) accompanies some truly exclusive standards, on account of its most noteworthy ever goals honor – and joyfully, it’s fit for creating incredible looking pictures.

It’s frustrating not to see inbuilt optical picture adjustment here, as it implies you must be somewhat cautious with how you shoot, maybe utilizing quicker shade speeds or higher ISOs, however all in all we were dazzled with the exhibition from a camera that is so little and travel-accommodating.

We took heaps of shots utilizing the diverse Picture Style alternatives, however our most loved is presumably the Fine Detail setting, which exploits that ultra-high pixel check to convey pictures which practically fly from the screen, with magnificent hues and sacks of detail. Obviously, many will likewise shoot in crude, and the M6 Mark II’s crude records are genuinely moldable, giving you great extension to alter introduction in after creation.

Only the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 lens was supplied to us for testing with the camera, and while it’s a decent walkabout lens for everyday use, you’re likely to find that you crave better and/or more versatile optics at some point. Given the small size of the EOS M6 Mark II, a fantastic option for subjects like street and travel photography would be the EF-M 32mm f/1.4.

Having access to uncropped 4K video is excellent news, and here the EOS M6 Mark II also performs well, producing well-detailed, nicely saturated videos that any vlogger should certainly be happy with.

Verdict

It would be very easy to dismiss the Canon EOS M6 Mark II as a camera with limited appeal, given its small body and lack of a viewfinder.

However, if you spend some time looking at the specifications, you begin to realize that this is actually a very capable camera, with its small size and weight offering real benefits for travel and street photographers, or anyone who would prefer not to lug around a hefty DSLR.

By utilizing a similar sensor as found in the fan level 90D DSLR, Canon is disclosing to us that the M6 Mark II is quite reasonable for genuine picture takers, who shouldn’t expel it wild. While numerous lovers will pine for a viewfinder, the absence of one is anything but a genuine oversight given that one can be acquired independently – and utilizing only a screen will scarcely be an issue for those used to shooting on their telephone, and vloggers.

Picture quality is superb, with that high-goals sensor conveying exquisite, definite pictures with incredible hues. It’s baffling not to see inbuilt picture adjustment here, however insofar as you’re mindful of that, you can consider it.

Likely the greatest frustration – and it’s one that goes for Canon’s whole M-arrangement line – is the restricted determination of local focal points. Group will disclose to you that you can utilize its broad scope of EF and EF-S focal points by means of a connector, which is valid, however to do as such with such a little camera rather invalidates the purpose; we can dare to dream that Canon keeps on dedicating assets to growing the local alternatives.

In general, however, there’s a great deal to like about the EOS M6 Mark II. It’s obviously fit to travel and road photography, while likewise being a decent decision for subjects, for example, scenes, picture, and – especially astonishingly – activity and game. We didn’t hope to like the M6 Mark II very as much as we did, yet it ends up being a clever little entertainer that we can exceptionally prescribe.
