On article New product overview videos: Canon EOS 6D II and more (102 comments in total)

When you start making commercials for any company people will doubt your objectivity in judging products from those companies.

Just don't do it. This will only ruin the reputation of this very website. credibilty is your bread and butter long term. Don't destroy it with short term profits.

dwill23: USB Charging would be horrible.

Yeah, leave the camera in the hotel room while you charge your batteries, instead of coming back to hotel room to grab your extra off the charger.

or...set your alarm for 5am so you can get up and switch batteries for your 7am excursion.

I hate USB chargers more than....facebook!

yeah making an interval set-up with an 20 buck powerbank on amazon is absolutely useless. Same for travelling to remote places where a reliable grid isn't straightforward, Like you know jungles, mountains, 3rd world countries.

i hate people that don't look beyond their own bubble.

USB charging doesn't equal no seperate charger. Like with my Fuji's.

rmexpress22: It's not weird at all that such an expensive niche camera gets tons of praise and enthusiasm while the 6D2 got a meh response.

/sarcasm

Yeah, camera images look okay. Let's face it, most cameras get good quality and the gap between mid-range and high end is not huge.

This article literally just told people not to be outraged about the price and that it's a pro camera. That it feels like a pro camera like a 1dx or D5. A 6D2 is only $300 more (sans lens, of course) but there was a lot of outrage about that pricing.

It's like there's no effort to hide the blatant bias for Sony. I wonder if Sony directed the talking points for this article.

The 6d mk2 got destroyed because it failed to compete with an 300-400 dollar entry level nikon below iso 800.

T3: Looks really good! Sure beats lugging around a $12,000 600mm f/4.

Well you could get a nikon d7200 with the 200-500mm for 2500k ish
Or a fuji x-t20 with the 100-400mm

Canon has that old very popular 400mm f5.6 which can be coupled with an 70d or even better 80d.

Then m43 has other alternatives.

Before someone comes in and says canon g3x no that failure is just too damn slow. Maybe the mk2 with an evf if that ever comes.

cosinaphile: you either "get" fuji or hate fuji

it totally threatens and upsets other system users .... buy why

the mysterious allure of the direct controls ...the solid metal build ... the corner evf ... beckoning to them as the gnash their teeth in resistance

using fuji is like learning that wine is delicious after leaving childhood
that brie on baguette is better than peanut butter and jelly on wonder bread

of course childhood is fun too

No current consumer level m43 has phase detect AF.
The em1 mk2 has it but that one is more then twice the asking price of my X-t20.

The original Em1 has it too but it's coverage ain't even remotely comparable.

Fuji's Af has been quick since later Fw iterations of their second generation X-trans sensor camera's. Including their first Pdaf camera the X-e2 from Fw 4.0

supeyugin1: Nice try but not enough. I need tilting/fully articulated screen, touchscreen, EVF, IBIS, built-in flash, and a good Wifi/BT implementation. Fuji doesn't have some of those. Only Oly/Pana have all those features.

Not in this price bracket. And fuji not being quick is simply no more true. For older models using 2ND generation X-trans and especially X-trans 3 models mentioned here.

It's not particularly fast on first generation fuji's and base firmware 2ND generation.

It's just as quick as m43 in X-trans 2 with latest fw updates (in decent light when Pdaf works) when using the center portion of the sensor. Not when using the outer portions though. Where Pdaf is unavailable.

The X-trans 3 is simply better then any m43 in that aspect save for the Em1 mk2. Except single shot in dim lighting which is remarkable on the Panasonic Gx7 and Gx8 i used. They just lock focus when my Fuji's keep struggling with a dim concert I posted shots of a year back.

However the em1 mk2 is not in the same price bracket as the X-E3 featured in this article nor the X-T20 I mentioned.

Pdaf is not available in any consumer level m43 camera. The Gx8 af continues tracking sucks monkey balls.
The X-T20 had a 80-90% hitrate on F1 cars in Barcelona. The Gx8 I had couldn't even hit 30-40% at touring cars at Zandvoort club circuit.

It has good WiFi implementation though. I have been at m43 the old 16mp does not compete with the X-trans 3 files. And no it is not close either.

Nor can m43 track moving subjects without Pdaf. Panasonic Dfd is impressive especially low light. But not for sports.

They can't shoot at their max framerate with AF-c either. My X-t20 can.

My X-t20 has all of that save for ibis.

Honestly I'd take the better lenses and Also sensor over ibis. Especially with the good O.I.S zoom lenses which cost a lot less then the Pana leica f2.8-4 counterparts.

Smartphones ain't operated through an Evf/ovf based on feel and touch.

Proper camera's are.

Sure touchscreens have their advantages too. They can work as joysticks pretty well for instance. Swiping through focus points for instance.

But they can't be used for multiple functions as well as dedicated buttons. Since it's hard to tell the difference where you touch the screen.

D-pads ain't perfect for navigation. But they do give us 4 programmable buttons and an enter key for navigation.

Programmable buttons I just need on my camera. Rather a few more then significantly less.

Those usually whine about X-trans. Which has it's benefits and it's issues.

Personally I love the standard jpegs and raws my X-e2 and X-t20 deliver. Love the handling of both too. Performance wise just the X-T20 though. That 24mp sensor has way better built-in AF.

But I need more quick buttons on both. Not less and without the D-pad it has much less quick access options. Which goes against their own philosophy.

Actually this upsets existing users because it's moving away from the allure of direct controls. No D-pad and more focus on the touch ui is a mistake.

In reply to:

cosinaphile: it did not need to be smaller it did not need a dongle flash to replace the elegant inbuilt pop up one

while the upgrade to the 24 mp excellent xtrans sensor is welcome

it didn't need to lose the d pad.. touch screens are good but not enough to lose 5 input buttons

I've been waiting for this camera a long time but ill pass
keep my xe2 and xpro2

Well i have no problem with this having a touchacrwwn
But relying on touch just doesn't fit with the Xline philosophy
