Canon EOS M6 Mark II Review

Dpreview has completed their review of the Canon EOS-M M6 Mark II, and have given it a glowing review.  Shocked? Indeed.  Dpreview gave it an 85% rating and a gold award, stating it's their favorite Canon mirrorless camera yet.

Key features of the Canon M6 Mark II;

  • 32.5MP Dual Pixel AF CMOS sensor
  • 14 fps continuous shooting
  • 30 fps Raw Burst mode (with AF Tracking and pre-shot buffering)
  • UHD 4K video at 30p and 25p with no crop / full width
  • 3.0" rear touchscreen flips up by 180° or down by 45°
  • Optional electronic viewfinder
  • USB 2.0 port with Type-C connector

Pros;

  • 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

Cons;

  • 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 10-bit video potential

Conclusions;

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.
