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.

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.
