The 6D MK II – Best Vlogging Camera on the Market?

by William SpencerLeave a Comment

Popular photography vlogger, Tony Northrup initially labeled the Canon 6D MK II as a boring camera, asserting that it “did nothing the best”.

Well now that he’s had some more time with it in his hands, he’s changing his opinion and general label of the versatile DSLR to the “BEST vlogging camera. Seriously.”

With a new shooting style and the Panasonic GH5 having below necessary autofocus function for his needs, he gave the Canon a second chance.

The 6D MK II’s Dual-Pixel autofocus with facial recognition ensures that he as the subject is always in focus, has mic level displays letting the user know if the microphone fails, warp stabilizer built in, and truly professional background blur with the 28mm in f/1.4 …. Best vlogging camera ever made.

While it doesn’t shoot in 4K, it still beats out all other competitors in the field.

Have you used the 6D MK II and have any thoughts of the camera’s capabilities? Check out the video here and everything Tony has to say on it.

I made a mistake: Canon 6D mk II is the BEST vlogging camera. Seriously

Via Canon Rumors:

Tony Northrup has amended his original review of the Canon EOS 6D Mark II and is now declaring it the best vlogging camera out there.

From Tony Northrup:

The Canon 6D Mark II really is the best vlogging camera for YouTubers who might need to film themselves at times. Canon’s Dual Pixel Autofocus (DPAF) simply works better than any of the competitors. The only camera that even comes close are Sony’s latest round of full-frame e-mount cameras, like the Sony a7 III. However, those cameras lack a selfie screen, and when they do focus during video, it isn’t smooth and cinematic. Besides the reliable face autofocus when recording, I’ve come to appreciate being able to use fast full-frame lenses, like the Canon 24mm f/1.4, to blur the background. The 6D Mk II also has audio levels on the screen while you’re recording (as long as you have the audio levels set manually), which the APS-C Canon 77D lacks.
