Rumors about the Canon 6D Mk II have been circulating the web for a while now; and today the camera is getting officially announced. The new Canon 6D Mk II is in many ways an incremental upgrade from the original Canon 6D in that it’s not doing a whole lot to reinvent the wheel. Canon is using a brand new 26MP full frame sensor at the heart with the ability to go from ISO 100 to 40,000. It can shoot at up to 6.5 fps and when using the 45 autofocus points near the center of the frame you’ll be able to photograph birds and other animals with relative ease. One of the biggest changes to the Canon 6D Mk II is the new Vari-Angle LCD touchscreen. The touchscreen works when trying to take photos in Live View and when you’re trying to navigate the menus. Despite all the improvements to the screen though, there isn’t 4K video present in the camera despite there being 4K timelapse abilities.
