Considering making the jump from a crop-sensor DSLR to a full-frame body? You'll be hard-pressed to find a better choice than this 6D Mark II kit. It includes a 24-105mm L-series zoom lens, which is one of the most versatile models in Canon's diverse lineup. This is the rig I shoot with personally, and I couldn't be happier with the results.
I took this shot of UVA's famed Rotunda with my Canon 6D Mark II.
The original 6D body was a highly capable customer favorite. The Mark II offers several notable performance improvements, including a significantly improved autofocus system, a higher-resolution image sensor, a 3" rotating color touchscreen, and the addition of Bluetooth for remote control from your phone or tablet.
The 6D Mark II also features some more subtle upgrades, like increased battery life and longer continuous shooting. It's an all-around faster and more capable camera than its predecessor. This full-frame camera is an excellent choice for seasoned photo enthusiasts, as well as for avid hobbyists who want more from their photographic adventures.
This 6D Mark II's controls are intuitive and easy to access in real time. I also appreciate the smartphone integration that this camera offers. Built-in Wi-Fi® lets me quickly transfer photos to my phone — handy if I want to post to Instagram on the go. I can even use my phone as a remote shutter release when shooting on a tripod.
Crutchfield offers the 6D Mark II with a less expensive 24-105mm lens. So why pay more for this one? The answer is simple: higher-quality glass yields better photographs. This L-series lens uses premium elements, advanced image stabilization, and fast, ultra-quiet auto focusing. These all help contribute to the sharp, punchy images that this lens captures.
I've shot everything from graduation portraits to sunsets to wildlife with this lens. Its wide range of focal lengths lets me spend more time taking photos, and less time switching between glass. If I could only own one lens with my 6D Mark II, it would be this one.
If you plan to use this camera for videography, there are a few things to keep in mind. The 6D Mark II records videos in 1080p, but doesn't offer 4K compatibility. It can produce 4K time-lapse videos, but it does so by snapping a series of high-res stills that it then stitches together.
It's also worth noting that there's no headphone jack on this camera. This means you can't monitor audio levels during recording. For most folks this isn't a big deal, but it's something to consider if you plan on using your 6D Mark II for video production.
I've found having an extra battery goes a long way, especially if you're using the camera in Live View mode. And you'll want to have a high-capacity SD card or two on hand so you don't run out of storage while on vacation or at your friend's wedding.

Package Overview: The Canon EOS 6D Mark II digital SLR kit includes the camera body and the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II STM lens. The camera has a standard Canon EF mount, and will accept EF lenses. (Because of the full-sized image sensor, EF-S lenses are not recommended. The camera is not compatible with EF-M lenses.)
ClearView LCD II Monitor: The EOS 6D Mark II features a 3.0" Vari-angle ClearView LCD II monitor with approximately 1,040,000 dots which allows you to view and shoot real-time images. It has a 3:2 aspect ratio, and features the same capacitive touch technology as today's popular mobile devices with intuitive touch panel operation. The Vari-angle panel allows you to easily shoot at high or low angles, or turn it around for shooting self-portraits. The LCD monitor offers 100% viewing coverage and 7 brightness levels to choose from. In Live View, grid lines can be displayed in 9 sections (3x3), 24 sections (6x4), or 9 sections with diagonals, as well as an electronic level. The Live View function enables you to shoot your subjects while viewing them on the LCD monitor.
Viewfinder: In addition to the 3.0" LCD monitor, the Canon EOS 6D Mark II uses an eye-level SLR with fixed pentaprism viewfinder with 0.71x magnification for approximately 98% vertical and horizontal coverage. The Intelligent Viewfinder II has a built-in diopter to allow you to adjust the viewfinder to your personal eyesight.
26.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor: The EOS 6D Mark II features a large, 26.2 MP full-frame CMOS sensor (35.9 x 24.0mm). The sensor captures images of 6240 x 4160 pixels with a pixel size of 5.67 µm square. For the flexibility to shoot in even the most dimly lit situations, the EOS 6D Mark II offers very wide ISO sensitivity, ranging from 100-40000 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 51200 and H2: 102400).
DIGIC 7 Image Processor: The EOS 6D Mark II uses Canon's DIGIC 7 Image Processor to produce high quality images and fast operation, even in low light. The camera is capable of a maximum continuous shooting speed of 6.5 frames per second.
Self Cleaning System: Dust that settles on the sensor surface of the camera is removed using ultrasonic vibration. This Self Cleaning Sensor Unit routine is automatically activated whenever the camera is powered on or off. (It can also be manually activated.) A special collar positioned around the sensor collects the loosened dust. In case visible dust still remains, you can delete the effect of the dust particles from the image via the downloadable Digital Photo Professional software.
Recording Media: The EOS 6D Mark II can record still images and movies on SD cards (SD, SDHC, or SDXC). The camera is also compatible with the Ultra High-Speed (UHS-I) SDHC and SDXC cards. No recording media is supplied with the camera.
Image Recording Format: The camera records still images in JPEG and RAW (14-bit) formats. Simultaneous RAW + JPEG recording is also possible. The camera's image sensor has an aspect ratio of 3:2. The aspect ratio can also be set to 4:3, 16:9, or 1:1, and the area surrounding the Live View image is masked in black for those settings. JPEG images will be saved with the set aspect ratio, while RAW images will always be saved in 3:2. Movies can be recorded in the MOV format (Video: H.264, Audio: AAC). There are two compression methods to choose from: IPB Standard and IPB Light. Available image sizes include:
|Image Quality||Aspect Ratio|
|Large||6240 x 4160 |

Time-Lapse Movies: You can shoot still photos at a set interval and stitch them together to create a 4K or Full HD time-lapse movie. A time-lapse movie shows how a subject changes in a much shorter period of time than the actual time it took. You can choose the total number of images (2 to 3600) and the length of the shooting interval (1 second to 100 hours). UHS-I compliant memory cards with 90 MB/sec write speed (4K) or UHS-I Speed Class 3 or higher (Full HD) are recommended.
Drive Modes: The Canon EOS 6D Mark II offers the following Drive modes:
45-Point Autofocus System: The EOS 6D Mark II features a wide-area 45-point auto focusing (AF) system, with all Cross-type AF points. The system allows you to track fast subjects throughout the frame, even in EV -3 dim light. There are five AF Area Selection methods to choose from: Single-point Spot AF (manual selection), Single-point AF (manual selection), Zone AF (manual selection of zone), Large Zone AF (manual selection of zone), and Automatic Selection AF.
AF Operation: The camera lets you select one of three AF Operation characteristics to let you seize every photo opportunity with fast, accurate focus:
Shooting Modes: The EOS 6D Mark II's top-mounted Mode Dial offers the following shooting modes:
iFCL Metering: The EOS 6D Mark II features Canon's multi-layer 63-zone iFCL (intelligent Focus Color Luminance) Metering System that integrates the camera's AF system into its readings. By taking into account the color and luminosity surrounding the chosen AF points, this new system delivers an entirely new level of accuracy, especially in situations where the light changes quickly.
Metering Modes: The camera features a 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor, with 63-zone (9x7) metering. You can select from the following metering modes:
ISO Speed: The camera's ISO speed can be set automatically or manually. The Auto Setting can vary from ISO 100 to ISO 40000, depending upon the shooting mode. Manually, you can set the ISO speed from ISO 100 to 40000 in 1/3-stop or whole-stop increments in the Normal Range. Expanded ISO settings include L (equivalent to ISO 50), H1 (ISO 51200) and H2 (ISO 102400).
Picture Style: By selecting a Picture Style, you can achieve various effects matching your photographic expression or the subject. You can also adjust the Sharpness, Contrast, Saturation and Color tone of each Picture Style. Picture Style selections include: Auto, Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Fine Detail, Neutral, Faithful, Monochrome, and User Defined 1-3.
High Dynamic Range (HDR): You can take artistic photos having a high dynamic range and preserving detail in highlight and shadow areas. HDR shooting is effective for landscape and still-life photos. With HDR shooting, three images of different exposures are captured for each shot (standard exposure, under-exposed and over-exposed), then merged together automatically.
Multiple Exposures: You can shoot two to nine exposures to be merged into one image. If you shoot multiple-exposure images with Live View shooting, you can see how the single exposures merge while shooting.
White Balance: White Balance is for making the white areas look white. You can choose from the following white balance settings: Auto, Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Tungsten Light, White Fluorescent Light, Flash Use, Custom, and Color Temperature.
EX-series Speedlite Compatible: The EOS 6D Mark II features the acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system. With any of the flashes in the EX-series Speedlite line, E-TTL II provides reliable flash output whether shooting fill-in flash pictures in sunlight, or using flash in total darkness. You can adjust the Flash Exposure Compensation +/- 3 stops in 1/3-stop or 1/2-stop increments.
Note: The camera does not have a built-in flash.
Built-in GPS: The camera has built-in GPS functionality, which can record longitude, latitude, and altitude data from overhead satellites for imprinting into your photos. Its logging function can track movement at set intervals, while the GPS data can set your camera's clock to the precise local time. This data lets you see on a map the exact route you traveled, and the exact location and time you took each picture or movie.
Microphone Input: The EOS 6D Mark II has a 3.5mm input for an external microphone. An external microphone records stereo audio in much higher quality than can be recorded using the built-in monaural microphone.

Lens Overview: The Canon EOS 6D Mark II is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. The supplied EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens is a standard zoom lens for Canon EOS cameras. It covers a wide range of focal lengths from wide angle to telephoto.
Lens Construction: The lens is constructed of 17 lens elements in 12 groups, including 4 glass-molded (GMo) aspherical lenses on 5 surfaces for excellent overall resolving power. Compared to the previous version, this lens delivers better peripheral brightness and reduced distortion for clearer still photos and videos.
Lens Coatings: The front and rear lens surfaces are coated with non-stick fluorine to help reduce smears and fingerprints. This helps prevents dust, water, oil, and other surface residue from sticking to the lens, and allows you to quickly and easily wipe the lens clean without the use of solvents. In addition, Air Sphere Coating (ASC) on the lens elements help to combat flare, ghosting, and reflections with reduced aberrations.
Image Stabilizer (IS): The built-in Image Stabilizer can be used in the AF (autofocus) or MF (manual focus) modes. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent effect of a shutter speed 4 stops faster. The 2-position switch located on the barrel of the lens allows you to turn the image stabilizer on and off.
Ultrasonic Motor (USM): The EF24-105mm lens is equipped with a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for silent, high-speed auto focusing. A high-performance control CPU drives the motor with accuracy, and with quicker starts and stops. It is programmed with optimized AF algorithms to achieve fast, accurate focus, and maintain it consistently.
Focusing Ring: Regardless of whether the lens is set to manual or auto focus mode, the focusing ring always works. This means you can auto focus on a subject, but manually fine-tune the focus by turning the focusing ring.
Lens Hood: The included EW-83M lens hood can keep unwanted light out of the lens, and protect the lens from rain, snow, and dust. You can reverse-mount the lens hood on the lens for storage.
Optional Filters: The EF24-105mm lens has a 77mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters.
Software: The EOS 6D Mark II does not include any software in the box. The following camera software is available via download from the Canon website:
