Canon Accidentally Leaks Its EOS M6 Mark II And EOS 90D DSLR Cameras
It appears as though Canon is getting ready to launch a couple of new cameras. Canon Australia posted a pair of promotional videos to YouTube, one depicting an unreleased EOS 90D APS-C DSLR and the other showing an EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless APS-C camera, which also is not yet available, nor has it been officially unveiled.
Apparently uploaded and made available to view in error, Canon Australia quickly realized its mistake and yanked the videos offline. However, like Las Vegas, what happens on the Internet stays on the Internet (only not in secret, because unlike Las Vegas, practically everyone is already on the Internet).
The folks at Canon Rumors had the foresight to download and re-post the videos before Canon Australia could flip the switch. According to the EOS 90D video, the camera will feature a 32.5-megapixel sensor powered by a Digic 8 processor, with a continuous shooting speed of 10 fps. It also boasts a 45-point all cross-type autofocus system, with Dual Pixel AF and Eye Detection AF.
There is an optical viewfinder with 100 percent serving up 100 percent coverage and 220K dot RGB + IR metering. For taking videos, the EOS 90D can record at 4K 30fps, and 1080p at 120fps. Other features include dust and water resistance, a touchscreen vari-angle LCD, and the ability to pair with Canon's BG-E14 battery grip.
Moving on, the EOS M6 Mark II looks to deliver some nifty upgrades over the model it is replacing. It starts with a 32.5-megapixel CMOS sensor powered by a Digic 8 processor, like the EOS 90D, but with a faster continuous shooting speed of up to 14 fps, and 30fps in RAW burst shooting mode. Likewise, it sports Dual Pixel AF, and has a dedicated MF/AF Focus Mode Switch button.
For recording, the EOS M6 Mark II can also record 4K video at up to 30fps and 1080p at up to 120fps. In short, the new camera offers a higher resolution, faster speed, and ergonomic improvements over the original EOS M6.
In an effort to keep it compact and light, there is no built-in viewfinder, and instead Canon has implemented a removable OLED viewfinder. Photographers can also send images automatically to smart devices while snapping photos.
Neither video mentions pricing or availability, though considering these promo videos exist, we imagine a launch is right around the corner.
