The Canon EOS M6 II is the company's newest APS-C mirrorless camera, scheduled to go on sale in late September with a 32.5MP APS-C sensor (seen also in the just-announced 90D), 4K video with no crop and a hot shoe ready to accept an optional (and sometimes bundled) electronic viewfinder.

The Canon M6 II offers a tilting, 1.04M-dot 3.0" touchscreen LCD along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. A Digic 8 processor allows for burst shooting at up to 14 fps with continuous autofocus. A 30 fps Raw Burst mode is also included, capable of pre-buffering 15 frames from before the shutter is pressed.

Canon has included a notable video recording upgrade: 4K capture using the full width of the image sensor

Canon has included a notable video recording upgrade: 4K capture using the full width of the image sensor. That's an improvement over the heavily cropped modes offered in previous Canon cameras but the M6 II offers 4K only at 30p or 25p; there's no option for 24p. Additionally, 1080p video is offered at 30/60/120p.

The Canon EOS M6 Mark II will be offered in black and silver bodies, priced at $850 body-only, $1100 with EF-M 15-45mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM lens and add-on EVF, and $1350 bundled with the EF-M 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM and EVF..

Press Release:

TWO CAMERAS, TWO WAYS: CANON U.S.A. ANNOUNCES A PAIR OF HIGH-SPEED ADVANCED AMATEUR ILC CAMERAS, THE EOS 90D AND EOS M6 MARK II

Both Cameras Feature a 32.5 Megapixel APS-C CMOS Sensor, High-Speed Continuous Shooting, Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Uncropped 4K UHD Video Recording Capability

MELVILLE, N.Y., August 28, 2019 – It is often said that in life, having two options is generally considered a good thing. Today, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, introduced two advanced amateur ILC cameras, the EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II. These two models usher in the next generation of Canon APS-C sensor cameras and share many similar characteristics, while also being uniquely different at the same time. Both cameras are designed to fit the needs and preferences of a variety of photographers taking into account their skill level and subject matter.

“As camera technology continues to evolve, we find ourselves in a constant state of innovating and challenging the status quo to meet the various desires of our end-users,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With the introduction of these cameras, Canon is reaffirming its continued commitment to a broad range of photographers by offering them the digital imaging tools required to meet their needs.”

The EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II include many core features that are identical and hold true to Canon’s imaging excellence. These features include:

  • 32.5 Megapixel CMOS(APS-C) Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 4K UHD up 30p and 1080p FHD up 120p video recording with no crop
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF in Live View with 5,481 manually selectable AF positions
  • Electronic shutter with a minimum of up to 1/16000th
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Technology

The Performance DSLR Way: The EOS 90D

The EOS 90D DSLR camera is ideal for the advanced-amateur photographer who values the look-and-feel of the DSLR body and benefits such as an optical viewfinder, 3.0-inch vari-angle touch screen LCD, addition of the multi-controller and a shutter button feel of professional EOS cameras. Now capable of shooting up to 10 frames-per-second (fps), a drastic increase from the 7.0 fps with the EOS 80D, users can capture all of the action on the sidelines of a football game or wildlife while on safari. Assisting in a photographers’ ability to capture the action is the 45-point all-cross type AF system, 100 percent viewfinder coverage and now supports up to 27 points in f/8 metering. In addition, the new AE sensor boasts an impressive 220,000 pixels and utilizes EOS iTR AF (face priority) detection. Together, these two features allow for the detection and tracking of faces in various environments and shooting situations while using the viewfinder.

The Compact-and-Lightweight Way: The EOS M6 Mark II

Bringing the controls and functionality of a Canon EOS DSLR into a compact mirrorless camera, the EOS M6 Mark II is destined to wow advanced-amateur photographers. With its enhanced usability, the EOS M6 Mark II is capable of shooting up to 14fps with AF and AE tracking as well as capturing a remarkable 30fps when using RAW Burst Mode with pre-shooting capabilities. The camera also features touch-and-drag AF when using the optional EVF-DC2 electronic viewfinder . A popular and notable benefit of Canon mirrorless cameras allows photographers to select AF positions with the touch of a finger. The EOS M6 Mark II also includes Canon’s Dual Pixel AF with Eye AF Servo to help ensure images are in sharp focus and a 3.0-inch, touch-panel LCD screen with tilt-option to help ensure a user’s portrait or selfie game is and stays on point.
