Canon has added a new model to its range of mirrorless M cameras and the APS-C sensor M6 MkII boasts some seriously impressive specifications. The MkII takes over from the original M6 and sees a huge jump in resolution from 24.2-MP to a whopping 32.5-MP – which is the same resolution seen on Canon’s new 90D DSLR.
The diminutive mirrorless tips the scales at just 408g, making it suitable for both packing in your suitcase when space is at a premium, but also for Vlogging as well. Also shared from the new 90D is the 45-point autofocus system that makes use of Canon’s acclaimed Dual Pixel AF technology.
With a native ISO of 100-25600, the mirrorless design also allows the M6 MkII to offer impressive speed. In fact, the tiny mirrorless can shoot at 14 FPS with full autofocus and offers a 30 FPS RAW capture burst mode too.
Images can be composed via the 3-inch touch-sensitive LCD that can be flipped up 180-degrees to be selfie-friendly. The LCD will also be very useful when shooting video, which the M6 MkII can do in very high quality- in fact, the new Canon mirrorless can shoot 4K footage at 24 or 30p. Fans of epic slow motion sequences will be pleased to hear the M6 MkII can also shoot 120p at Full HD.
Images can be transferred to smart devices via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and photographers can also choose to compose images via an optional extra removable Electronic Viewfinder. Images and video are recorded to a single SD card.
Canon’s M6 Mark II will be available in black or silver and is expected to ship in late September priced at $849.99/£869 body only, but will also be available with various kit lens options.
