I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

Dual Pixel CMOS inside

While it incorporates a new version of Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS sensor, which has autofocus sensors on-chip, it uses the same autofocus system as the 80D.

The 6DM2 drops the proprietary "AV Out" connection for a more up-to-date USB.
