You’ve probably seen pictures of your friends on Instagram with the hashtag #instahubby. But what exactly does it mean?

#instahubby is short for “Instagram husband” and is usually someone who constantly takes pictures of his spouse or partner for her blog, Instagram or other forms of social media. The typical pictures taken by Instahubbies usually involve #OOTD (Outfit of the Day) shots, portraits, backview shots, jump shots, and so on.

The term gained popularity after a video made for an American show, The Mystery Hour, shows disgruntled men talking about how “behind every cute girl on Instagram, is a guy like me.”

So yes, an #instahubby is a photographer in every sense who is not paid with money, but with love.

Of course, not all husbands would be as enthusiastic about constantly taking pictures.

So some wives, or girlfriends, may end up having to take pictures themselves, and sometimes pictures taken with a selfie stick might not cut it.

Enter the latest full-frame DSLR from Canon, the EOS 6D Mark II, and it might be the answer to your #instahubby woes.

Featuring Wi-fi and Bluetooth capabilities, this camera can be set up on a tripod and the shutter can be triggered via your smartphone, eliminating the need for an actual person behind the camera.

Now you can go for your own photo shoot, alone.

And if you think lugging a DSLR around might be too heavy for your handbag, the EOS 6D Mark II is actually the lightest full-frame DSLR camera available in the market now.

A notable upgrade to the EOS 6D Mark II from its predecessor is the addition of a 3.0-inch touchscreen LCD monitor that can be adjusted at different positions and angles, depending on your needs.

Basically, now you can have a screen which can swivel in various angles so you can use it to take low-angle or high-angle shots for unique shooting situations.

These wireless features are of course not first to DSLRs or any cameras but the images taken with this camera is simply stunning.

With its 26.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and Canon's DIGIC 7 image processor, the images produced are breathtaking with vibrant colours.

Even in low-light conditions, this DSLR does not disappoint due to its high ISO range of 100-40000.

And you can do it all by yourself without having to pay a photographer - or face a disgruntled husband or partner.
