Canon 6D Mark II Sucks for Video

It’s half way into 2017 and Canon not only doesn’t have 4K on its new camera, but it’s 1080P codec is somehow worse than the 6D Mark I (video autofocus is better of course in the Mark II).

We don’t hate Canon but they’ve been protecting their pro-video-segment at the expense of all their consumer gear.  It’s been a long time that Canon’s given us anything to be excited about at a consumer affordable price.

As you will see in this video the Canon is a disappointment.  We truly believe improved color and codecs are on the horizon for the next generation of models so we are waiting out a lot of the 8-bit cameras but at these prices all of these options are viable if you need something right now.
