Best Settings for Canon Cameras – Canon M6 Mark II



Trying to get out of Auto and dial in the best settings for canon cameras? In this video we walk through my favorite changes to canon settings to enhance your photography.

If you’ve been thinking about the Canon M6 Mark II or the new Canon M50 Mark II, this series covers unboxing, review of canon M-Mount cameras, sigma m-mount lenses, how to setup a canon vlogging kit with the M6 Mark II and M50, and more.

I could gush about the Canon M6 Mark II all day. An excellent photography camera, a great vlogging camera, an easy first time camera… this setup is wonderful. When I first asked B&H to let me borrow the Canon M6 Mark II, I thought about it as a hobby photography kit. I was looking for a lightweight compact camera kit that wouldn’t sacrifice too much quality compared to my full frame professional Canon cameras. I paired the M6 Mark II with three lenses from Sigma. The Sigma 16mm 1.4, Sigma 30mm 1.4, and Sigma 56mm 1.4. With equivalent focal lengths of 25.6mm, 48mm, and 89.6mm, this Sigma three lens kit gave me several options to get the shots I was looking for, and everything fit into a tiny little Peak Design Sling.

  2. This is my first real camera. I decided on the M6 Mark II after researching options for a couple montha. I'm starting to scratch the surface on settings. I appreciate you getting straight to the point and WHY you are making the changes. I will for sure watch your other videos!

    Also, any entry-level, hobbyist post-processing SW/product recommendations?

  3. One question to the pro: When I compare my shots on the M6 MII Touchscreen with the exports on my mobile or computer, the exported images (RAW) are much darker. I already turned down screen brightness but seems not the issue. Any idea or is this a normal condition?

  4. Very good info. I'm happy that the M6 mark ii is still usable at 6400 ISO for stills and even 12800 ISO for video. I use 800 ISO for stills and 6400 ISO for video on my M50 and that's the max I would go without too much noise.
