Canon announces EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II

Canon Europe has launched two high-speed, high resolution cameras – one DSLR and one M-series mirrorless – designed to take enthusiast photographers to the next skill level.

Same on the inside, but designed for different users and purposes, the EOS 90D (DSLR) and EOS M6 Mark II (mirrorless) are both equipped with Canon’s latest generation DIGIC 8 processor, brand new 32.5MP CMOS sensor, standard connectivity tools (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth), 4K video in conjunction with Canon’s powerful Dual Pixel CMOS AF, plus Eye detection AF.

The EOS 90D is a fast and reliable DSLR, with a familiar, robust body perfect for sport and wildlife photographers. You can shoot at 10fps with autofocus tracking and 11fps in Live View. The optical viewfinder enables the responsiveness needed to shoot wildlife, such as birds in flight, while an intelligent function gives complete visibility of the composition and shooting settings within the display. Like its predecessor – the EOS 80D – it has 45 all cross-type AF points, plus various custom functions to fine-tune the focusing. The familiar LP-E6N battery – now standard across Canon’s enthusiast and advanced camera range – offers an impressive 1300 shots so you can shoot all day.

For everyday life, the EOS M6 Mark II is a compact, yet powerful mirrorless delivering beautifully sharp images for photographers on the move. It’s capable of 14fps continuous frame rate and staggering 30fps RAW burst both modes with autofocus tracking. It focuses down to EV -5, offering impressive low light capabilities and, like the 90D, has an ISO range of 100 to 25600, expandable to 51200. The tiltable screen is ideal for vloggers and content creators, whilst an optional electronic viewfinder EVF-DC2 can extend your viewing options if you’re more comfortable with the camera to your eye.

AA:Where is Canon heading with the EOS R system?

MB: That's still to be defined, but the plan is to develop the system in both directions. With the EOS RP we've gone towards an entry-level full-frame camera, which is a very large market. It was a bit of curve ball because everyone seemed to have expected a high-end model.

When you have a high-end product it's got to be bullet-proof. It's got to work. That's the faith professionals have in Canon. It’s not going to let them down. And that's what has built the CPS [Canon Professional Services] reputation. It’s the same with a pro mirrorless camera – it's got to work. It can’t be a ‘work in…
