It appears that despite Canon pushing forwards with its new EOS R lineup of full-frame mirrorless cameras, the company is still interested in maintaining its EOS M lineup of mirrorless cameras. This is according to a report from Canon Rumors who spotted a leaked promotional video from Canon, advertising the EOS M6 Mark II.
Thanks to the leaked video, we know that the company is indeed working on the camera and now we also have an idea of what kind of specs we can expect. This includes the use of a 32.5MP APS-C sensor, the use of the DIGIC 8 image processor, 14fps shooting speeds, a RAW burst rate of up to 30fps, and an ISO range of 26,500, eye-detection AF, AF capable of stepping down to -5 EV, 4K video shooting, and also Full HD video shooting at 120fps. There will also be a removable OLED viewfinder.
It’s actually interesting that Canon is still pushing ahead with the EOS M series of cameras. They weren’t exactly the most well-received, but we suppose it could represent a more affordable mirrorless camera compared to the EOS R series, which are a bit expensive and more than what most of your average hobbyist would be willing to pay.
There is no word on when the camera will be announced, but given that the promotional video has already leaked, we imagine that an official announcement probably shouldn’t be too far behind.
