The camera is trying to process information to or from the memory card. If the status does not change after a few minutes, you may have a damaged memory card. Turn the camera off. Remove the memory card and inspect it. Reinsert the memory card. Can you view photos on the LCD by pressing the arrow button? If so reconnect to your computer. If not, you most likely have a damaged memory card. Try inserting the memory card into a card reader connected directly to your computer. This may be able to still read the card when your camera cannot.

Hmmm... if the viewfinder exposure bar is also out of focus, I think the problem might be the manual focus for the viewfinder itself. Usually cameras have little thumbscrew somewhere near the viewfinder. It's there to accommodate differences in some peoples vision (do they have their glasses on or not ?). Yup... that's my bet. Give it a go. Is it on the top, right of the viewfinder?

You need to check out the correct settings as the flash sync speed for you 6D ii is 1/180th which you should be able to use at 1/200th so only being able to get less than 1/160th would indicate incorrect setting in the external flash mode or a slight fault.

Make sure that the flash on the unit is working and that you aren't accidentally covering the flash on the camera with your fingers.

Make sure there is good lighting for your pictures.

you need Canon specific lenses because of the auto-focus and auto exposure settings. The lens and camera work as one.
