Canon EOS 6D Mark II DSLR sample images : After over three years, Canon announced the successor to the popular EOS 6D last week. The Canon EOS 6D Mark II DSLR camera is designed for the semi-professional photographer who appreciates the impressive image quality of a Full Frame camera. The new Canon EOS DSLR camera is improved in resolution, speed and accuracy. The 6D Mark II is the cheapest Full Frame camera within the Canon range, featuring a 26.2 megapixel image sensor and the powerful Digic 7 image processor. Last week we already showed some EOS 6D Mark II test photos, the Japanese manufacturer has now also published a series of wedding and city photos.
Canon DSLR with Full Frame sensor
A Full Frame camera has a larger image sensor (24x36mm) than an APS-C camera (22x15mm). This larger sensor is based on the traditional 35mm format of analog cameras, the APS-C sensor is a crop sensor.
Full Frame offers a number of advantages, the image quality is more detailed and the pictures look sharper and show less noise. Another effect of a Full Frame sensor is a shallower depth of field, as you have to get closer to the subject (or zoom in) in order to fill the frame. Unfortunately, Full Frame cameras are also a lot more expensive.
Regardless of whether you shoot with a Full Frame camera or an APS-C camera, ultimately, the quality of the lens significantly determines the quality of your photo. Some lenses are suitable for both camera systems, others are focused on one particular.
