Canon announces EOS 90D DSLR

Comments Comments

Along with today's announcement of the Canon EOS M6 Mark II, Canon have debuted a new flagship APS-C DSLR, the 90D.

Canon won't quite confirm the 90D as the successor to the 7D Mark II, but for all intents and purposes the new DSLR assumes the mantle of the company's flagship APS-C DSLR.

Like the EOS M6 Mark II, the 90D gets the same 32.5-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, and is capable of shooting 10fps with autofocus tracking and 11fps in Live View.

There's 45 all cross type AF points, individually selectable or grouped into areas and Dual Pixel CMOS AF. 

The Canon EOS 90D offers improved battery life when compared to the M6 Mark II, up to 1300 shots (CIPA standard).

Otherwise, specs are very similar to the M6 Mark II, there's a 3.0” Vari-angle Clear View LCD touch screen, single UHS-II card slot, and 4K video features at 30p and Full HD at 120p.

The obvious question is which is the better choice, the M6 Mark II or the 90D? After our brief hands on, we'd have to tip our hat towards the M6 Mark II - the smaller form factor and blazing fast drive speed make, for us at least, a more compelling package. 

The 90D will be available from September, with pricing yet to be set. You can find out more at Canon.
