Canon unveils EOS M6 Mark II
Canon have 'officially' announced the EOS M6 Mark II, a 32.5 Megapixel APS-C interchangeable lens camera that shoots at a 14fps continuous frame rate and offers 30fps RAW burst, all with autofocus tracking.
Like the newly announced 90D, the M6 Mark II shares the same newly-developed 32.5MP sensor, with Canon now offering a flagship APS-C camera in both mirrorless and traditional DSLR formats. The sensor has an ISO range of 100–25,600.
The EOS M6 Mark II is obviously a much more compact package when compared to the 90D, at 119x70x49mm, and just 408g. There's no electronic viewfinder, however Canon have included an attachable external EVF.
Both models are equipped with Canon’s DIGIC 8 processor which 'unlocks' lens correction tools including a digital lens optimiser and diffraction correction.
Improving on its predecessor, the EOS M6, the EOS M6 Mark II focuses at EV-5 when used with lenses with f/1.4 or larger aperture. There's also eye-AF.
The EOS M6 Mark II can shoot 4K video utilising the full angle view of the attached lens and Full HD at up to 120 fps, and Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system is available in both Full HD and 4K video modes and offers an area coverage of (88 x 100%). There's also a microphone port, but sadly no headphone port.
Battery life is rated for approx 250 shots with the viewfinder on, and 305 shots with the screen on.
The EOS M6 Mark II will be on sale from September, with pricing yet to be set. You can find out more at Canon.
