Earlier this month we heard rumors that Canon has a new mirrorless camera in the works in the form of the EOS M6. Turns out the rumors were right as Canon has officially announced the Canon EOS M6, a mirrorless camera that appears to be the successor to last year’s Canon EOS M5.

However as you can tell from the official photo that the EOS M6 will be a slightly different camera compared to the EOS M5. In fact the EOS M6 seems more reminiscent to Canon’s earlier mirrorless efforts compared to the EOS M5 which felt like a bit of a departure, but depending on your needs or preferences, they will still use the same lenses so it’s really up to you which model is better for you.

In terms of specs, we are looking at a 24.2MP CMOS APS-C sensor with phase-detection. It is capable of high-speed continuous shooting at 7 frames-per-second which can be bumped up to 9 frames-per-second with AF Lock. The camera will also be powered by Canon’s DIGIC 7 image processor, have an ISO range from 100-25,600, Full HD video capture, built-in image stabilization, along with WiFi, NFC, and Bluetooth connectivity options.

There will also be a 3-inch touchscreen display that can be tilted, and like we said it will also play nicely with a variety of Canon lenses, such as the EF, EF-S, and EF-M range. The Canon EOS M6 will be available come April 2017 for $779.99 for the body-only, or $899.99 with the EF-M 15-45mm/F3.5-6.3 IS STM zoom kit lens, or $1,279.99 with the body and EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens.
