“Fear is the thing that prohibits a lot of photographers from reaching their full potential.” – Collin Pierson (International Award-winning Photographer) Photographers often find themselves battling unpredictable conditions in order to get that perfect shot. It is always a challenge to juggle camera settings while making sure the focus is in the place, the subject is framed in a pleasing manner, and the camera is kept steady for the shot. Plus, shooting with the traditional DSLR can sometimes be a hassle with its heavy weight and large size. Enter the Canon EOS M6 Mark II. The successor to the crowd-favourite Canon EOS M6, the nifty Canon EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless camera keeps its characteristic compact and lightweight qualities yet boasts upgraded features of a full-fledged DSLR. Challenges and fears that many photographers face when they shoot can now be a thing of the past thanks to the Canon EOS M6 Mark II’s fully loaded capabilities and versatility. Read on to find out how the Canon EOS M6 Mark II’s intuitive features empower professional photographers to overcome their fears.

Shoot in uncropped 4K quality

Nature is an ever-changing landscape that requires one to act fast and capture the shot before the picturesque moment slips away. It is thus not surprising that nature and travel photographers Beixin Lee’s and Robin Lam’s greatest fear is not being able to react in time and missing out on photo-worthy moments. Built with a powerful 32.5-megapixel APS-C CMOS Sensor, the Canon EOS M6 Mark II takes vibrant and sharp shots in brilliant 4K quality. The pair is able to capture stunning landscapes without compromising on smaller details, especially when shooting with wide angles.

With up to 5,481 selectable AF point positions with Canon’s unique Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, switching focus positions in an instant is easy-peasy. Plus, with a light weight of 408g and measuring almost half of a mid-range DSLR, the compact Canon EOS M6 Mark II is perfect for catching fleeting moments of nature with ease.

Embrace low light conditions

For portrait photographer Jayden Tan, his greatest fear is darkness. Light plays a key role in allowing him to achieve the right focus for a good shot, and he fears being unable to focus and missing shots that are difficult to recreate.

Moreover, the Canon EOS M6 Mark II is also capable of an ISO range of 100 to 25,600 (and expandable to 51,200), perfect for shooting in any location, from the bright outdoors to dimly-lit rooms.

Don't miss another important moment

Action sports photographer Mark Teo works in a fast-paced dynamic environment where key moments of the action can pass in a blink of an eye. Capturing fast-moving subjects at the peak of action is a challenge for Mark as he has to juggle framing the shot while keeping a close eye on his subjects as they perform tricks. [For more shots by Mark Teo on the Canon EOS M6 Mark II, click here.] With the 30 frames-per-second (30FPS) RAW burst mode function on the Canon EOS M6 Mark II, capturing action-filled sequences in rapid-fire succession is fuss-free. Mark can now focus on framing up his shots while the camera captures enough frames of the action without worrying about missing the key moment. What’s more, the camera’s improved AF tracking keeps his constantly-moving subject in focus for a powerful and dynamic shot. The camera’s 3.0-inch tilting LCD touchscreen also makes framing shots and getting unique angles easy and more comfortable to shoot.
