    Canon announces new DSLR duo EOS 6D Mark II and EOS 200D

    In what's been a relatively quiet couple of years in the world of cameras, Canon has taken to opportunity to get one over its competitors with the announcement of the EOS 6D Mark II full-frame model and EOS 200D small-scale beginner model. The EOS 6D Mark II is set to be the first Canon EOS DSLR to sport a newly developed 26.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor, which replaces the 20.2MP sensor in the original EOS 6D. The sensor features a Dual Pixel AF design and is paired with Canon's DIGIC 7 image processor. The camera has a top ISO of 40,000 and uses the same 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor as the EOS 80D. When shooting through the viewfinder the 6D II offers a 45-point, all-cross-type AF system. The camera can take bursts at up to 6.5 fps using Servo (continuous) AF.

    There is no headphone jack (only mic input), only single SD card slot, 98% viewfinder coverage instead of full 100% and no joystick for selecting the focus point. This despite the fact that the camera is priced at $1999.

    Next is the EOS 200D (known as the Rebel SL2 in the US) which is a compact DSLR for beginners. It has a 24.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, DIGIC 7 image processor, ISO 100-25600 range, optical viewfinder with a 9-point AF system, 3.0-inch 1040k dot articulated touchscreen, 1080p60 video with microphone input, and built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth.

    The EOS 200D is priced at $549 body-only or $699 with the Canon EF-S 18-55m f/4-5.6 IS STM lens. It will be available in late July with the 6D Mark II.

    Canon U.S.A. Celebrates National Camera Day With the Announcement of Two New DSLR Cameras

    EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Cameras Provide Photographers with Improved Features over Predecessors

    MELVILLE, N.Y., June 29, 2017 – In celebration of the innovation behind today’s generation of high-quality digital SLR cameras on National Camera Day, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to announce the new EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR cameras designed for advanced-amateur and entry-level photographers, respectively. The EOS 6D Mark II camera is ideal for budding photographers looking to take their creative DSLR photography skills to the next level by shooting with a Full-frame CMOS sensor DSLR camera to capture beautiful high-quality portraits and striking landscapes, even in low-light situations. The EOS Rebel SL2 is a small, light, and compact camera with high-performance capability that allows users to get creative when capturing their special family moments or travel experiences.

    “It seems fitting that today, a day set aside to commemorate the invention of a tool that forever changed how we view the world, we introduce two new DSLR cameras to the Canon family,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A. “In an industry where choices are abundant, providing consumers with the photographic tools that match their developing skill levels as they continue to embrace their passion for photography is a long-standing goal of Canon and stands at the core of our research and development. The new EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR cameras are the result of Canon’s dedication to providing a wide range of camera choices for photographers of all skill levels, whether it’s someone taking their first picture or video with a DSLR camera or those looking to make the jump to a Full-Frame sensor camera.”

    “After just one day in Yellowstone National Park with the EOS 6D Mark II DSLR Camera, it was clear that the camera is greatly improved over its predecessor,” said acclaimed nature photographer and Canon Explorer of Light Adam Jones. “Landscape and nature photographers will be very happy. The new and improved autofocus is way ahead of the previous generation and performed extremely well, even in very low-light situations.”

    EOS 6D Mark II DSLR Camera
    Designed with enthusiast photographers in mind, Canon’s popular and versatile EOS 6D DLSR camera historically served as the gateway for enthusiasts to step-up to Full-Frame DSLR cameras. The EOS 6D Mark II DSLR camera features several enhancements over its predecessor model, and its benefits include:

    • 26.2 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor
    • Optical Viewfinder with a 45-point All Cross-type AF System1
    • Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Phase-detection & Full HD 60p
    • DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100-40000
    • Vari-angle Touch Screen, 3.0-inch LCD
    • Built-in Wi-Fi®2, NFC3, Bluetooth®4 and GPS technology
    • High-speed Continuous Shooting at up to 6.5 fps
    • Dust- & Water-resistant

    EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Camera
    Stepping up from a smartphone or point-and-shoot camera for photography can be intimidating. With the introduction of the new EOS Rebel SL2, a powerful, small, and lightweight DSLR camera, Canon hopes to alleviate some of those concerns for first-time DSLR users.

    This small yet powerful camera features the world’s fastest AF speed* at 0.03 seconds, allowing for quick focusing on subjects in the frame. When designing the new EOS Rebel SL2 camera, Canon took into consideration feedback from entry-level photographers who expressed interest in learning how to go beyond a camera’s program mode. The result was the creation of a convenient new user interface called Feature Assistant. With the EOS Rebel SL2 camera, users will be able to see on the camera’s Vari-angle Touch Screen how switching modes on the mode dial or tweaking camera settings like aperture and exposure compensation can alter the image they are about to capture, thus guiding photographers on their way to capturing more compelling images, such as ones with a shallow depth-of-field or being able to give moving subjects a frozen or flowing look.

    The EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR camera features several other enhancements over its predecessor model, the EOS Rebel SL1, including:
    • 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor
    • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
    • 3.0-inch Vari-Angle LCD Touch-Screen,
    • Built-in Wi-Fi®2, NFC3 and Bluetooth®4 Technology
    • Full HD 60p & External Microphone Input
    • DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100-25600
    • Optical Viewfinder with a 9-point AF System
    • Feature Assistant
    • Small and Lightweight Body

    The EOS 6D Mark II DSLR camera is scheduled to be available in late July 2017 for an estimated retail price of $1,999.00 for body only, $3,099.00 with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM II lens and $2,599.00 with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 STM lens**.
