How to adjust Canon 6D MARK II landscape settings?
The Canon EOS 6D Mark II is a full-frame DSLR with many high-end, smart features. It is designed around the powerful image processor DIGIC 7 and has a CMOS sensor of 26.2 megapixels that provides a significant boost in resolution.
This latest sensor also has an ISO 100-40,000 native sensitivity range that can be expanded to ISO 50-102,400 matching both EOS 5D MARK III and EOS 6D. The Canon 6D MARK II has an autofocus sensor of 45 points (all cross-type), while the original 6D has 11 AF points.
Start the job with the right facilities. Landscape photography requires an ultra-wide fixed lens so that the full background can be captured (Hey! It’s on Amazon)

Steps to adjust Canon 6D MARK II landscape settings
STEP 1. Mastering white balance

Simplifying the white balance in digital photography means changing colors so that the picture can get a more natural look. The Auto White Balance settings of your Canon flip screen camera are (AWB). It will erase the color cast when set correctly to align the picture with what we saw when we first took it. It works pretty well the majority of the time. Capturing a landscape shot, however, will give you bad results at sunrise or sunset as the AWB does not do too much of a great job. So, instead, consider using a white balance preset for daylight or some other preset according to the shot you like.
STEP 2. Higher aperture and lower aperture

An aperture is essentially the opening of the diaphragm of the lens through which light can pass. It’s well calibrated and written as numbers such as 1.4, 2, 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, and 16 in f/stops. So the higher f/stops give you less exposure, and vice versa, since they reflect the wider apertures, the lower f/stops give you more exposure. You typically want to have a wide and deep depth of field in landscape photography to keep everything in view, and to do that, set the camera to aperture priority mode (A or AV) and set it to a large number such as f/13, f/16 or sometimes even f/22. Adjust the value in line with your needs. It will make a big impact on your captured images.
STEP 3. Adding a filter can improve your images

Filters are cheap accessories, and adding a filter to the camera makes a big difference in digital photography, particularly when capturing landscape photographs. For example, even in daylight, a standard natural density filter allows the user to take long exposures without over-exposing the image. Using a polarizing filter helps you to monitor the blue appearance of the sky while improving the colors.6D MARK II landscape settings- filter
STEP 4. ISO settings

The scale on which light sensitivity is measured is called ISO. ISO can be measured like this:- for example, if you use ISO 100, because of its light insensitivity, you will find that it will be more beneficial to take bright light picture, while if you use ISO 400, you will also notice that it is better suited for indoor photography where the light is poor. Also, keeping the ISO down (around 100 to 200) as much as possible will give you a picture that makes it pretty clean with less noise or grain.
You can use live views for low and high-angle shots with the new updated articulated touchscreen. Only bear in mind that the battery drains much faster than it does using the viewfinder. MARK II can capture 1080p (full HD) videos at 60 (up from 30) frames per second in the video section and in film recording. It also offers digital stabilization of the image. WI-FI, Bluetooth, and NFC networking solutions are all available for rapid sharing.
