Press release:

EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Cameras Provide Photographers with Improved Features over Predecessors

MELVILLE, N.Y., June 29, 2017 – In celebration of the innovation behind today’s generation of high-quality digital SLR cameras on National Camera Day, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to announce the new EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR cameras designed for advanced-amateur and entry-level photographers, respectively. The EOS 6D Mark II camera is ideal for budding photographers looking to take their creative DSLR photography skills to the next level by shooting with a Full-frame CMOS sensor DSLR camera to capture beautiful high-quality portraits and striking landscapes, even in low-light situations. The EOS Rebel SL2 is a small, light, and compact camera with high-performance capability that allows users to get creative when capturing their special family moments or travel experiences.

“It seems fitting that today, a day set aside to commemorate the invention of a tool that forever changed how we view the world, we introduce two new DSLR cameras to the Canon family,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A. “In an industry where choices are abundant, providing consumers with the photographic tools that match their developing skill levels as they continue to embrace their passion for photography is a long-standing goal of Canon and stands at the core of our research and development. The new EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR cameras are the result of Canon’s dedication to providing a wide range of camera choices for photographers of all skill levels, whether it’s someone taking their first picture or video with a DSLR camera or those looking to make the jump to a Full-Frame sensor camera.”

“After just one day in Yellowstone National Park with the EOS 6D Mark II DSLR Camera, it was clear that the camera is greatly improved over its predecessor,” said acclaimed nature photographer and Canon Explorer of Light Adam Jones. “Landscape and nature photographers will be very happy. The new and improved autofocus is way ahead of the previous generation and performed extremely well, even in very low-light situations.”

EOS 6D Mark II DSLR Camera

Designed with enthusiast photographers in mind, Canon’s popular and versatile EOS 6D DLSR camera historically served as the gateway for enthusiasts to step-up to Full-Frame DSLR cameras. The EOS 6D Mark II DSLR camera features several enhancements over its predecessor model, and its benefits include:

  • 26.2 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor
  • Optical Viewfinder with a 45-point All Cross-type AF System1
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Phase-detection & Full HD 60p
  • DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100-40000
  • Vari-angle Touch Screen, 3.0-inch LCD

EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Camera

Stepping up from a smartphone or point-and-shoot camera for photography can be intimidating. With the introduction of the new EOS Rebel SL2, a powerful, small, and lightweight DSLR camera, Canon hopes to alleviate some of those concerns for first-time DSLR users.

This small yet powerful camera features the world’s fastest AF speed* at 0.03 seconds, allowing for quick focusing on subjects in the frame. When designing the new EOS Rebel SL2 camera, Canon took into consideration feedback from entry-level photographers who expressed interest in learning how to go beyond a camera’s program mode. The result was the creation of a convenient new user interface called Feature Assistant. With the EOS Rebel SL2 camera, users will be able to see on the camera’s Vari-angle Touch Screen how switching modes on the mode dial or tweaking camera settings like aperture and exposure compensation can alter the image they are about to capture, thus guiding photographers on their way to capturing more compelling images, such as ones with a shallow depth-of-field or being able to give moving subjects a frozen or flowing look.

The EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR camera features several other enhancements over its predecessor model, the EOS Rebel SL1, including:

  • 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • 3.0-inch Vari-Angle LCD Touch-Screen,
  • Built-in Wi-Fi®2, NFC3 and Bluetooth®4 Technology
  • Full HD 60p & External Microphone Input
  • DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100-25600
  • Optical Viewfinder with a 9-point AF System
  • Feature Assistant
  • Small and Lightweight Body

    :D

  • Deep Freeze

    Glad to see Canon put a real AF system in it this time along with DPAF. Flip out touch screen, 6.5 fps and all the wireless connectivity…. Canon will sell a bunch of these.

    As for lack of 4K, I don’t think it will hurt sales all that much. I think most people looking at this camera will be stills shooters. I’m sure some troll will “educate” me on the virtues of 4K and blah blah blah. I will however agree that a camera of this caliber and this price ought to have 4K in 2017. But, again, I don’t think it will be a deal breaker for stills shooters and most people interested in it. If it is there are other brands for them to buy.

    • vau

      All the other FF cameras in this price range has 4k as a standard in 2017.

      • man

        Canon doesn’t seem to think 4K is that big a deal. Maybe in another 5 years for Mark III.

      • Deep Freeze

        And this one should too.

        • vau

          hint: theres none.

    • JetLi

      yeah im a canon user and my next camera is a sony A7R II. this 6D II offers me nothing i would pay 2000$ for.

      i stick to my old 6D and buy a highres sony.

    • Wade Marks

      Think your analysis is spot on. Stills shooters will find much to like in this camera. In fact for a serious amateur, this camera is in many respects a better buy than the 5d mark iv, as it will offer almost as much for significantly less money.

      I do think if Canon had put in a good 4k implementation, they could have cleaned up with this camera with the indie video crowd, and thus left that on the table.

  • JetLi

    “Landscape and nature photographers will be very happy. The new and improved autofocus is way ahead of the previous generation”

    since when need landscape photographer a great or fast AF?

    i use the center AF point 99% of the time and it works just great for me as landscape photographer.

    and for serious sports photography this camera is too slow anyway.

  • Hetzer

    Looks a decent camera, although carrying on Canon’s stupid track record of nobbling features so as not to cannibalise sales higher up its range (card slot, 4k mainly). I like it a lot at first glance.

  • Chaitanya

    RAW buffer is too shallow only 18shots, no dual card slots, flash sync speed only 1/180, 1080P 60fps only with IPB, no touch to drag af for af point selection. too expensive for what it offers in 2017 when D750 from 2013 looks much better.

  • CW Steve

    My opinion is, this is a great camera. Made for photographers.

    • Wade Marks

      True. For a still photographer who wants FF, this is a great camera.

  • Leo Matoso

    I’m glad I didn’t wait for this and upgraded from my old 70D to the 6D Mark I. In fact, looking at the new features, I think I won’t be upgrading to the MKII at all. MKI for US$1299 suits me way better than the MKII for US$2k.

  • iggykh

    i’m sorry to break it to you, but you are acting like a bunch of whiners, never happy with anything.
    there never will be a perfect camera to do it all, by any camera maker…
    the mkII seems to be a good still shooters camera, video shooters have other options…

    • Deep Freeze

      Yep, that’s what say too.
