Canon Stamp Their Authority on Stills Oriented DSLR’s
Once again Canon have stifled their latest, high (ish) end DSLR by not including 4K video or even a headphone jack much to the disappointment on many Canon fans.
I have now come to the conclusion that Canon are standing firm on their decision not to undermine their made-for-video range of dedicated cameras.
Whilst the 6D Mark II is being hailed as a mildly updated 80D with full frame and a few other improved features, I am not sure if it will be enough for some people to part their cash. If you believe the commenters, the Sony A7S III is going to go down a storm!
Only a single SD card slot, no headphone jack and even the 1080p video is stuck at 60fps…
However…as a stills camera, I say this is a superb bit of kit and if you have no interest in video, you don’t own a 5D Mark IV or 80D and like the look of this, go for it. I may at some point even grab one myself when I sell the 5D Mark II.
