Some shots just from Dinner, really just getting to test the camera out still (M6 Mark II). Totally love it. Shot at ISO 1600 for testing purposes. I should be able to clean these up better than I did I think at 1600. But still pretty good, IMO.

Probably should have brought the focus a little closer on this one. Or better still, tried some focus bracketing out.

Finally posting after reading 37 pages of posts /photos. Have a M5 with the usual suspects of lens in addition to the big camera system. The size, weight difference makes a huge difference when walking, hiking, biking
This was done with a EF-S 60mm Macro with a ring flash. HSS allows the background to go black (inside my garage is not the most photogenic background)

I also used the M5 for some water skiing awhile back. While it is not the fastest it seemed to work.

Recent business trip to the Seattle area. I had an hour or so and went to Myrtle Edwards park downtown. Pretty neat place although a little difficult to get to. This is a view south from there toward Harbor Island with Mt. Ranier in the background. I believe the cranes visible on the left are on Pier 46 of the Central Waterfront area. Taken with M6 Mark II

Oh yes! This time wasn’t that bad really traffic wise. Just getting to the bridge to walk over to the park.

About 10 years ago I’m on Rainer and decided I was shooting sunset on whiskey island. I just about didn’t leave enough time. 3 hour trip due to traffic.

Walking around with the M6 Mark II and the EF-M 22mm. The 22 is such a nice lens...sharp, nice bokeh, and really close focusing distance for its angle of view.

And super compact and light. I think it's a perfect, must have lens for the EF-M system.

As is usual, my original intent for this system is changing a little. I like the 11-22 and the 22, I'm underwhelmed by the 18-150... and I'm closely eyeing the 32mm now as well as the 56mm Sigma. In fact I'm eyeing the Sigma so close I ordered it yesterday.

In short the Mark II does a remarkable job as long as the lens is up to the task, better than I thought it would be really.

I haven’t used the 18-150 much. I bought it as a simple shore excursion lens for family cruises. The 32 is right up there with the 22. I have been looking at the Sigma 16. Might put it on my Christmas list for mama and the kids. :)

Not 2 months ago I was going to weld the adapters on my M6 and EOS R and use all EF glass. Now I only have 2 EF lenses left and all native for the other 2. Lol

The 22 is such a nice lens...

I still believe it's the best overall lens for the M-system for both it's image quality and size; the 22 is perfect for the M.

It's quite interesting looking back to when the original M bombed in the states, then Canon pulled out of the North American mirrorless market, one could buy a 22 for under $100 USD...

I know there have been questions about charging the EOS M6 Mark ii from a power bank - I have certainly had a hard time finding useful info about it. I recently bought a power bank and thought I would share my results.

I bought a RavPower 18W 10,000mAh PD power bank from Amazon for about $25. I also added a basic USB-C 3.1 cable for about $5, since the power bank doesn't come with one. Here's a link to the power bank I am using: https://www.amazon.com​/gp/product/B07N3RGNY6​/ (external link)

I plugged my M6ii in to the power bank, and immediately got the charging light on the back of the camera. I had taken about 200 shots on the M6ii, so I am assuming the battery was at about 60% charge. When I checked on it a little over an hour later, it was fully charged.

I also tried a $30 Amazon Basics wall charger with a USB-C PD port (https://www.amazon.com​/gp/product/B07PBCLM6X​/ (external link)). This also worked fine. This time, I had only taken about 50 shots since charging the battery (plus spent about 15 minutes experimenting with menu settings on the touchscreen), so the battery was still mostly full - it took about 20 minutes for the charging light to turn off.

As always YMMV, but from what I can see, there is no need to buy the ridiculous $190 Canon-branded charger. There are perfectly good $25-$30 options out there to charge your EOS M6 Mark ii in camera.

I recently posted the same basic info in an EOS R thread, because the same charging devices work perfectly on my R.
