The Canon 6D Mark II- My Favorite Camera of All Time

The Canon 6D Mark II- My Favorite Camera of All Time

I recently needed to upgrade my DSLR. After a lot of soul-searching, I had to face the realization that perhaps I don’t absolutely NEED 4K…

…which meant that Canon’s “worst” camera, the 6D Mark II is literally the PERFECT camera for me! I say worst because the initial reviews when the camera was released in 2017 were quite negative (mainly due to the lack of 4k). However, as time has gone on, more people seem to be appreciating all that this camera DOES offer.

I’ve been shooting with the original 6D for several years, but have begun to find it so restrictive for video that I basically stopped using it.

My quest for a great full frame camera with a flip out screen and reliable autofocus made the second generation Canon 6D the ideal contender.

My name is Tom Buck. I’m a high school digital media teacher with a lifelong interest in video, photo, and tech. Basically, I’ve always had “too many” hobbies, but finding new ways to connect the dots and learn new things along the way has always been incredibly fun and interesting.

I like to share what I know to help others get excited about making cool stuff. Life is short and time is limited, and I believe that digital media, and especially video, is a powerful tool to express creativity and explore new ideas.

I upload new videos every Thursday morning, and more often when possible!
