Canon 90D or 6D Mark 2

I chose the Canon 90D

I chose the Canon 90D

Hey,

So i have done photography alot in other cameras and now i'm planning on purchasing my own one...but im very confused with these two choices...

I Need this camera to cover Portraits to Sports to Weddings...basically everything...

What would you recommend me...

90D is latest, better processor,more ISO Range...faster shutter speeds...latest tech....inbuilt flash...BUT THE ONLY ISSUE IS THAT IT IS A CROP SENSOR

where as the Canon 6d Mark ii is older and the old processor but still it is full frame which can give better quality and better low light images....

im very confused on what to go with...it will be really helpful if you could evaluate it in detail...and help me with the choice...

Thank you


Hi Huzefa, thanks for your question comparing the Canon 6D Mark II with the 90D. I chose a 90D for 3 main reasons, but I think the 6D Mark II may be better for you based on all the points you made in your initial question.

It's challenging when comparing an APS-C crop camera versus a full frame. There are subtle differences like the different levels of bokeh (important for shooting portraits) and size of the pixels (important factor for noise) squeezed onto the sensor.

Why I chose the 90D over the 6d Mark II


1. I already own a capable full frame, Canon 5D Mark III. I already have a few EF-S lenses and the 90D is replacing my 70D.
2. The 90D has tremendous video capabilities and I'm shooting videos, some of which end up on my Youtube Channel.
3. I wanted to shoot birds in flight as well as sports action photos at 11 frames per-second


Why you should chose the 6D Mark II over the 90d


Canon EOS 6D Mark II
The 6D Mark II is fast enough for sports

1. Better low light (less noise) performance because of the larger individual pixels.
2. Better bokeh than a crop sensor.
3. Solid (not professional) 6.5 frames per second to capture the right moment when shooting sports.

6D Mark II Vs. 90D


Ultimately the choice on which camera, the 90D or the 6D Mark II, appeals to you the most depends on how important each one of those advantages and disadvantages of each format matter to you. If you needed the absolute super speed of 10 or more frames per second for sports photography, I'd steer you in a different direction.

It sounds like the crop sensor is a deal breaker for you and the 6D Mark II will handle many different situations for you, just like the 5D Mark III has done for me.

Huzefa, I hope this helps add some clarity for you. I know it's a tough choice because of all the variables. Both cameras are great tools for image making. PLEASE, let me and the other readers know what you decide.

Thanks,
Bruce
