This is a question we receive multiple times every single day, so I’d figure we’d give an update, even though nothing has really changed.
We expect to see the EOS 6D Mark II announced in the late spring/early summer of this year, with availability in the summer. For the moment, pricing has not yet been set, currency fluctuations may prevent knowing that until much closer to the announcement.
As far as specifications go, very little is known for sure. However, we think by looking at the recent EOS 77D announcement, we can make some good predictions as to what we’re likely to see from Canon’s entry level full frame camera.
Canon EOS 6D Mark II Predicted Specifications
- 24-28mp full frame CMOS
- 45 AF points (all cross-type)
- Dual Pixel AF
- DIGIC 7
- Built-in Wi-Fi®, NFC and Bluetooth® technology
- Built-in GPS
- Vari-Angle touchscreen LCD
- 6 FPS Shooting
- HDR Movie & Time Lapse Movie
- Some form of 4K video
- Movie electronic image stabilization
- Dual SD card slots
- 100% coverage optical viewfinder with some new features
As we all know, Canon very rarely goes way outside of the with new products, as their cameras aren’t just about one specific feature. It’s generally how all of the features come together to make a great shooting experience for the photographer.
We would love to see this camera come in at under the $2000 USD mark.
