Canon EOS M6 Mark II is a very compact and lightweight mirrorless camera. With 32.5 megapixels, its sensor has almost a third more pixels than the much more common 24MP and 26MP APS-C sensors from Sony and Fujifilm. It also has an improved Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus system with Eye AF.

Canon's EOS M6 Mark II has a new sensor with class-leading 32.5MP resolution. It's the best mirrorless camera Canon has made to date, but enthusiasts may be turned off by a scarcity of premium lens options. The camera can fire as quickly as 14fps in its Hi+ burst rate.

Pros[**]
  • Class-leading 32.5MP full-frame sensor
  • Excellent image quality
  • 4K support
  • Improved autofocus
Cons[**]
  • Not entry-level

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
Canon's M range of mirrorless APS-C cameras have been playing second-fiddle to its full-frame options lately. The EOS M6 Mark II represents a fairly dramatic overhaul of that camera. It gets a dramatic boost in resolution over the one in the M6, and the latest Digic 8 processing engine. 14fps shooting with continuous autofocus at full resolution is available. A 30fps raw burst mode is also available, if you can live with 'just' 18 megapixels.

Pros[**]
  • High-resolution APS-C sensor
  • Impressive autofocus
  • Tilting screen, microphone socket and 4K video recording
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Canon EOS M6 Mark II is built around a 32MP APS-C size sensor. Even with its 32 MP sensor, this little camera is fast, shooting up to 14fps with auto exposure and autofocus. The camera is easy to use thanks to built-in help that explains each shooting mode.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent image quality
  • Fast autofocus
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • 4K video
  • Easy to use
Cons[**]
  • Not a viewfinder built-in

Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The EOS M6 Mark II is a handsome, well-built camera for enthusiast photographers that doesn't radically depart from its predecessor. Like the Canon 90D, it pairs a 32.5-megapixel APS-C sensor with Canon's latest Digic 8 processor. Despite that extra resolution, it means you get improved burst shooting (up from 7fps to 14fps) for a better hit-rate when shooting action scenes. There's also now a 120fps slo-mo mode when shooting video in Full HD, as well as Eye Detection AF when shooting with continuous autofocus in stills and movies.

Pros[**]
  • Fast, responsive autofocus
  • Improved burst shooting
  • 120fps slo-mo mode
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
