Canon Announces the EOS M6 Mark II

It was February 2017 when Canon released the EOS M6 APS-C mirrorless camera as a whole new line different from the EOS M5. The EOS M6 was actually more like a buffed up EOS M3 that came much later. 

Today Canon finally announced the successor of the EOS M6 which is the Canon EOS M6 mark II which packs a 32.5 Megapixel Dual Pixel AF CMOS sensor capable of 14 frames per second continuous shooting and 30 frames per second Raw burst mode with simultaneous AF tracking. It boasts of UHD 4K 30p and Full HD 120p Video shooting. There is a choice between a black or silver top plate version.

Like the first version, an electronic viewfinder is sold separately which means that unless you make an extra purchase, the 3.0" rear touchscreen serves as your viewfinder. The screen flips 180 degrees up and 45 degrees down. Still no lateral movement on the screen. The camera now also uses a USB 2.0 type C port for camera-computer connection and external display. 

This is quite a jump from the original EOS M6 camera that had a 24.2 dual pixel AF sensor that could only do 7 frames per second continuous shooting. It's quite a delight to see Canon still developing the APS-C mirrorless lineup despite the observable focus on the EOS R full frame mirrorless line. 

The body only option costs $849.99 while the 15-35mm + EVF-DC2 kit costs $1,099 and the 18-150mm + EVF-DC2 kit goes for $1,349 now available for pre-order.

You guys are really on top of things today. How about the other Canon camera? The lenses? I heard too Sony had some new cameras announced today.

Wait in line. They haven't even mentioned the Blackmagic 6k camera yet.

They don't really discuss Blackmagic on Fstoppers. I think mainly because it is purely for video rather than photography. Same reason why Arri or Red etc aren't discussed here.

Hmmmm, that wouldn't make sense.

This is such a great little camera. Pretty much the ideal travel companion.
