Flip out screen? Nope, the new camera sports an articulated flip out screen. Maybe they forgot to make it a touch screen? Nope, it is indeed. In fact, you can focus, expose, and trigger the shutter in one touch. So, what could it possibly be? 4K video! Yes, they forgot 4K video! Hello, it’s 2007 calling. Yes, the 6D Mark II has fantastic HD performance, can deliver 60fps, and HDR to boot.
It’s kind of mind bending that Canon, who for years led the charge in large sensor cameras for delivering some of the best video for the money, period. Even taking out much higher end dedicated video cameras. Sure, if you can pony up for the latest 5D, you get 4k too. Panasonic throws it in on their $500 G7. Maybe it’s hiding in a future firmware update?
