A Look at the Canon EOS R6 Mark II for Wedding and Travel Photography

The Canon EOS R6 was one of the most well-balanced cameras of the past few years, offering a range of the advanced features found on the EOS R5 without the more extreme specs that most photographers do not need, making it a practical and well-priced option for a huge range of users. The EOS R6 Mark II follows up on the original with a range of improvements and new features, and this great video review takes a look at how it holds up for wedding and travel photography.

Coming to you from Taylor Jackson, this excellent video review takes a look at the Canon EOS R6 Mark II mirrorless camera for wedding and travel photography. While the EOS R5 remains one of the most impressive and capable cameras on the market, it is bit of overkill for a lot of users, as many people do not need features like a 45-megapixel sensor or 8K raw video. Thankfully, the EOS R6 Mark II keeps most the important features of the EOS R5, like its advanced autofocus system, and reduces both the sensor resolution and price to much more practical levels, making it an excellent all-around camera for many applications. Check out the video above for Jackson's full thoughts.

Man these cameras are so good now it makes it even harder to know what camera might be good for you if you are just getting started off. I'm personally a little less excited for all these features since I've been content with my own cameras bought 3-5 years ago (except video, that's always the area I desire more). Glad to see Canon pushing it ever so slightly close to building the perfect camera!

Yea....a person would have to try to take a bad picture with today's cameras. Doesn't matter the brand, they all have the ability to take great shots. As for the R6II, seems to me that it fits the mold as a good events type camera. Wedding shooters don't need 40+MP sensors, but a good focusing system and fast frame rate make for a good event shooter. If I were a wedding photographer and had the budget, I'd grab the R3. But I like the larger size. I use and R5 with a grip.

True. For me it's all down to usability now. I like small cameras, I don't really care about EVF, but I want a flip up screen instead of those swively boys, and then a nice selection of compact primes to stick in pocket. Give me like 2 dials and an Fn button for ISO, White Balance, and AE-L and I'm happy.

Fingers crossed on the M6II getting an RF mount. That would be ideal. 🤞
