I have Godox TT685C and it works great with EOS 200D / SL2. Now I'm planning to buy M6 Mark II. Will it work?


Looks like uncertain answer.

There is nothing uncertain about my answer.

In fact, I'm asking, because I know that in their recent APS-C DSLR Canon got rid of central contact on hot shoe. It looks like there is the central contact on M6 Mark II, but maybe they disabled the functionality some other way.

The MK II has the same hot shoe and same pin setting as M50, 80D, 90D etc,etc. The camera you refer to is the newly released 250D/sl2 which had the center pin removed that is not the case on the M6 MKII.

So, is there anybody here who tried a third party flash on this camera.

Are you interested in the Godox or another Speedlight brand? That is an entirely different question
