Re: Canon 6d mark II desired features

I've just found best solution for replacement of articulating screen. It is USB host OTG cable or Wifi + your smartphone or tablet + phone on camera holder + EOS Remote / dslr controller application. Ie you simply use your smartpfone as live view sceen monitor, phone is placed in a holder on the camera.


This solution is more portable (since your phone is always with you), screen quality is better and it is touch sensitive, and what is most important, it weights only ~ 0.2kg, while external hdmi monitor weight is 0.4 kg minimum (excluding heavy battery).


PS: But I still think that built-in articualting screen is a "must have" feature in all new cameras, even used by pros.

Re: Canon 6d mark II desired features

I like what you desire in the 6D Mark II, there is one thing that matters to me most in that camera, a viewfinder with 100% coverage.


It's something I enjoy now in my Canon 7D, and Canon should have put viewfinder 100% coverage in the 6D when the Nikon D600 has that.


Which I plan on either the 6D or 6D Mark II, which ever I buy would be my first full frame.


I want a full frame for landscapes and general purpose photography, especially full and partial people pics, cars, off road trucks and buildings.


We all know on full frame we get more light for given camera settings than crop, giving us more control over optical quality, which is what I want.

Re: Canon 6d mark II desired features

Another desired 6D M2 improvement is faster focusing speed in Live View mode. Current LV focusing is **bleep** slow, it takes 3-4 seconds to take picture. Hybrid focusing like detect approximate range by phase and then contrast detect preciese focus will solve this. Competitors, even dlsrs Nikon D610 have much faster LV mode autfocus, im not saying about mirorless cameras.
