Canon has improved things across the board for the new model, but the big news is that the camera arrives with a fresh 26.2MP full-frame sensor. The Canon EOS 6D Mark II features a 26.2 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor (approx. 35.9mm x 24.0mm) designed to create high-resolution and detailed images The combination of the sensor and processor allows Canon to add capabilities like 4K timelapse movie and 1080/60p recording. Canon also supplements the Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity with Bluetooth.
IAfter testing many video editing applications with Canon EOS 6D Mark II 1080P footage and 4K time-lapse movies, the result shows that we can’t import MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 files into Final Cut Pro X and Premeire Pro CC directly due to the codec incompatibility. Something else, there’s actually no way to edit a 4K project in these editing software natively. In this case, to have a smooth Canon EOS 6D Mark II recordings workflow on Mac, you’d better convert MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 to FCP X/Adobe Premiere Pro edit-friendly format with proper settings. It will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing.
The process is surprisingly easy and can be done with the help of Acrok Video Converter Ultinmate for Mac. The program can effortlessly encode/re-encode 4K MP4, MOV, MXF, etc footage to advanced encoders like Apple ProRes 422, MPEG-2, etc. to seamlessly fit for Final Cut Pro (X, 7, 6), Adobe Premiere Pro (CC, CS6, CS5) and more. For working Canon EOS 6D Mark II videos on Windows PC, you can turn to Acrok Video Converter Ultimate. Just download it and keep reading for a brief how-to on each process.
