Don’t Forget, The EOS M10 Replacement is Coming Soon

By Canon Rumors | August 15, 2017 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We know about the 4 lenses that Canon is going to announce soon (we’re not sure on the exact date yet), and along with those lenses, we’ll be seeing the replacement to the Canon EOS M10 being announced. We’re not sure if it’s going to be called “EOS M20” or not. Expect specifications that are similar to the EOS M6/SL2 in a small form factor.

Nokishita has confirmed the EH31-FJ face jackets for the EOS M10 successor are on their way. It looks like you’re going to get 9 color options.

There has been no mention of any new EF-M lenses coming alongside the new EOS M camera, but there’s a chance that could change.

We haven’t heard anything definitive about a new prosumer PowerShot camera(s) coming.

Review: Canon EOS 6D Mark II by TDP

Review: Canon EOS 6D Mark II by TDP

By Canon Rumors | August 12, 2017 | Canon Reviews

The-Digital-Picture has completed their review of the Canon EOS 6D Mark II, and came away pretty impressed overall. While it’s not a perfect camera body, the image quality is great as far as noise and color go, but we’re all disappointed we didn’t get a dynamic range performance bump.

From TDP:

The 6D Mark II did not impress me with its AI Servo AF capabilities, its dynamic range is only adequate and I’m not a fan of the 8-way multi-controller. But, the image quality benefits, especially color and noise levels, of Canon’s full frame CMOS sensors are big, while the footprint of the 6D II remains small – as does, probably most importantly, the relative impact on your wallet. Expectations were that the 6D Mark II would deliver very impressive image quality and rapidly hit the most-popular list. It has delivered on expectations. Read the full review

I still haven’t used the EOS 6D Mark II enough to give my final verdict to folks, but I do like the camera so far.
