Canon officially announces the EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II

Both Cameras Feature a 32.5 Megapixel APS-C CMOS Sensor, High-Speed Continuous Shooting, Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Uncropped 4K UHD Video Recording Capability

MELVILLE, N.Y., August 28, 2019 – It is often said that in life, having two options is generally considered a good thing. Today, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, introduced two advanced amateur ILC cameras, the EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II. These two models usher in the next generation of Canon APS-C sensor cameras and share many similar characteristics, while also being uniquely different at the same time. Both cameras are designed to fit the needs and preferences of a variety of photographers taking into account their skill level and subject matter.

“As camera technology continues to evolve, we find ourselves in a constant state of innovating and challenging the status quo to meet the various desires of our end-users,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With the introduction of these cameras, Canon is reaffirming its continued commitment to a broad range of photographers by offering them the digital imaging tools required to meet their needs.”

The EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II include many core features that are identical and hold true to Canon’s imaging excellence. These features include:

  • 32.5 Megapixel CMOS(APS-C) Sensor• DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 4K UHD up 30p and 1080p FHD up 120p video recording with no crop
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF in Live View with 5,481 manually selectable AF positions
  • Electronic shutter with a minimum of up to 1/16000th
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Technology


The Performance DSLR Way: The EOS 90D

The EOS 90D DSLR camera is ideal for the advanced-amateur photographer who values the look-and-feel of the DSLR body and benefits such as an optical viewfinder, 3.0-inch vari-angle touch screen LCD, addition of the multi-controller and a shutter button feel of professional EOS cameras. Now capable of shooting up to 10 frames-per-second (fps), a drastic increase from the 7.0 fps with the EOS 80D, users can capture all of the action on the sidelines of a football game or wildlife while on safari. Assisting in a photographers’ ability to capture the action is the 45-point all-cross type AF system, 100 percent viewfinder coverage and now supports up to 27 points in f/8 metering. In addition, the new AE sensor boasts an impressive 220,000 pixels and utilizes EOS iTR AF (face priority) detection. Together, these two features allow for the detection and tracking of faces in various environments and shooting situations while using the viewfinder.

The Compact-and-Lightweight Way: The EOS M6 Mark II

Bringing the controls and functionality of a Canon EOS DSLR into a compact mirrorless camera, the EOS M6 Mark II is destined to wow advanced-amateur photographers. With its enhanced usability, the EOS M6 Mark II is capable of shooting up to 14fps with AF and AE tracking as well as capturing a remarkable 30fps when using RAW Burst Mode with pre-shooting capabilities. The camera also features touch-and-drag AF when using the optional EVF-DC2 electronic viewfinder . A popular and notable benefit of Canon mirrorless cameras allows photographers to select AF positions with the touch of a finger. The EOS M6 Mark II also includes Canon’s Dual Pixel AF with Eye AF Servo to help ensure images are in sharp focus and a 3.0-inch, touch-panel LCD screen with tilt-option to help ensure a user’s portrait or selfie game is and stays on point.

So as I expected, the 1/16000 shutter speed is with electronic shutter, like in the original 1D. The soft shutter on the 80D is an interesting tidbit.

no Dual SD Slots as expected, still will be getting this to replace my broken 500D. Wondering what buffer is for continuous shooting.
Edit: found the buffer depth and at best its unimpressive. Overall it does seem like Canon has done decent job of crippling this camera as well.

Says who?

At least DPReview reports that they asked Canon about it and apparently the M62 is replacing both the M5 and the M6. A shame, really. I realize the M5/M6 division was always about experimenting which form factor ends up more popular, but I'd like to think that there exists room on the M line for an enthusiast model with an integrated viewfinder. (Also with a tilty-flippy screen while we're at it…)

So according to the specs it will have 24fps recording for you movie makers out there. In 1080p only though.

So the M6II has up to 14 fps shooting with full AF, but the 90D in Live View only does 7 fps with AF or 11 fps without. I wonder whence the difference, or if it's Just Canon Things™️. With the DPAF tracking, I wonder if the M6II ends up being the one better suited for shooting action, at least in some cases :oops:

Bah, 32Mpix at 10fps is a lot of data to move, though I would have expected a larger difference between UHS-I and UHS-II cards. I expect the buffer flushing time to be noticeably faster with UHS-II, however.

Anyway, when shooting action I see no reason not to use C-RAW; the loss of information really is minimal. 39 C-RAWs at 10fps is quite impressive and should be enough for anyone considering this camera.

1199$ for a camera that don't do 24fps 1080p video? what is this? 2008? hahaha!


When all its predecessors has it (70D, 80D, 77d, even the rebels) There is no excuse but to wanted crippling the camera.

Sad! I was really hoping to upgrade my 70D, but none the RP/90D do 24fps
 
The EOS M6 Mark II is a replacement for both the EOS M5 and EOS M6.
If this is true, then it is a bit surprising. I was expecting some product differentiation, e.g. that M5 II is going to get an IBIS, thinking Canon was not ready with the feature in time, so that's a reason M5 II will get released later. But if there is not going to be any M5 II, we are going to live without an IBIS the whole one iteration, which means few years.
