Canon 6D Mark II vs Canon 7D Mark II

6D Mk II vs 7D Mk II image

Canon 6D Mark is incredible! Look at the specs of the camera…Full Frame sensor, advanced image processor etc. The big difference of the two cameras is sensor size. One is Full-Frame based and other is APS-C. Thus it is sure that Canon 6D Mark II will capture the best shots of the subjects with clarity and details. Moreover, Dual Pixel CMOS AF inside 6D Mark II will boast the focusing system of the camera. Such are the attracting line we can write for Canon 6D Mark II.

Let’s go in detailed comparisons:

Image quality

Canon 6D Mark II has High-profile Full-Frame sensor plus maximum number of effective pixels (26.4) that combines together with intelligent Digic 7, ensuring largely detailed images of the subjects with maximum clarity. On the other hand, Canon 7D Mark II has APS-C sensor that gathers comparatively lower light than Full-Frame sensor of Canon 6D mark II. So, image quality of 7D Mark II will not be superior as Canon 6D Mark II.

AF system

Dual Pixel AF system – A very innovative AF technology inside Canon 6D Mark II allows both capture video in Live View with smooth and precise autofocus. Here both cameras have Dual Pixel CMOS AF system that provides fast and accurate autofocus during Live View still image capture. But Canon 7D Mark II may give you groundbreaking AF performance since it features 65-all cross type AF system that allows the camera for precise shooting. Moreover, lowlight shooting will also be easily done with the camera having maximum cross type AF points. On the other hand, Canon 6D Mark II has only 45 AF points.


Canon 6D Mark II gives you the highest Expandable range of 102400 that is more that sufficient with standard ISO of 40,000. Hence 6D Mark II must be the camera for lowlight that can nicely perform to get you detailed image quality. On the other hand, Canon 7D mark II breaks on 51200 only.

Image stabilization

Canon 6D Mark II offers 5-AXIS electronic Image stabilization minimize the movement in the horizontal and vertical, yaw and pitch (tilting) and roll directions that are the ultimate cause of the blurs, ensuring the videos you record are as sharp as possible. On the other hand, Canon 7D Mark II doesn’t have I.S system so it requires an IS-compatible lens to block the way of Blurs.

Continuous drive

10 FPS of 7D Mark II confirms that even the split second action will be simply captured. On the other hand, Canon 6D Mark II comes with only 6.5fps only.

Size and Weight

Canon 6D Mark II is slightly smaller and weight less than Canon 7D Mark II.


Canon 6D Mark II features bigger sensor compared to Canon 7D Mark II camera. The Big sensor and large pixels of 6D Mark II will grab more light, so you get better image quality and low-light performance.
