Tony Northrup appears to have changed his mind on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II, a camera that got a lot of undeserved bad press.
Says T. 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 EF 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.
We never had any doubt that the EOS 6D Mark II was an excellent camera.
