Our Canon EOS 6D Mark II price rumor gets another mention (yeah, it’s $1,999, June 29 announcement)

EOS 6D Mark ii

The Canon EOS 6D is getting replaced soon

The price for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II, which we got a tip about in November 2016, suggested to be $1,999, surfaces as rumor over the web.

Below you see the list if rumored Canon EOS 6D Mark II specifications and features. The list that’s been posted everywhere on the web started here, after a series of good tips.

Latest rumored announcement date for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II is June 29, 2017. Stay tuned.

Are these the Canon Rebel SL2 specifications? [CW3]

Are These The Canon Rebel SL2 Specifications? [CW3]

We have been tipped with a list of specifications for the upcoming Canon Rebel SL2.

The specification list seems pretty much to be the same as for the EOS 800D/Rebel T7i, announced a few months ago. It’s not unlikely that the Rebel SL2 and the Rebel T7i have same or similar specifications.

The Canon Rebel SL2 might have:

  • 24MP sensor
  • 3″ vari-angle and touchscreen display
  • 1080p/60 fps
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • WiFi/NFC
  • 45 points AF
  • Digic 7
  • ISO 51200
  • HDR movie, time-lapse movie
  • Will still be the world’s smallest DSLR

My take: the list above is plausible, the Rebel SL2 may indeed have specifications and features that are very similar if not the same as other entry-level Canon Rebel DSLRs.

We expect the Rebel SL2 to be announced on June 29, 2017, together with the Canon EOS 6D Mark II and a new entry-level mirrorless camera.

Stay tuned!

More Canon EOS 6D Mark II specification suggestions emerge


canon rumorsEos 6d mark ii

At less than a 3 weeks from the supposed Canon EOS 6D Mark II announcement we still know very little about Canon’s next entry-level fullframe DSLR. Very weird. Some new specification suggestions emerged, and we are here to report.

Over the last 2 years we got a lot of suggestions, which you can see in the list below. Most of the EOS 6D Mark II specifications floating around on the web leaked first here on Canon Watch. The list below is the same, original list all other sites are reposting. I added the new specification suggestions in italics.

  • All new sensor, rumored to have 26MP (we were told 28MP and reported first here and here and here)
  • Tilting LCD (we reported first here)
  • Touchscreen (we reported first here)
  • DIGIC 7
  • Aiming for a sub $2000 USD body only price (we told you first here)
  • Dual Pixel AF (we reported first here)
  • No 4K, 1080/60 instead (we reported first)
  • Wifi, NFC & other connectivity (we reported first in 2015)
  • Larger viewfinder (possibly 100%)
  • New AF system (we reported first here)
  • New battery grip BG-E21
  • HDR movie
  • Time lapse mode

Knowing the EOS 6D Mark II will make HDR movies and have a time lapse mode are not really earthshaking leaks, but still better than nothing.

Latest rumor about the announcement points to June 29, 2017. Stay tuned!

Canon EOS 6D Mark II coming June 29, featuring 26MP sensor? [CW3]


canon rumorsEos 6d mark ii

The rumor mill is getting hot on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II. A new rumor suggests the EOS 6D Mark II may have a 26MP sensor, and that it may be announced on June 29.

Previously, we got rumor for an announcement on July 20/21. Then, some leaked information about the EOS 6D Mark II and other unregistered gear made me think Canon may announce it earlier. The latest announcement rumor suggests June 29 for the announcement. The 6D Mark II should then ship in August.

The other interesting bit concerns the image sensor. Until now the rumoured resolution was 28MP. The new rumor suggests it will be 26MP. It’s still suggested it will be a completely new sensor (which also the EOS 6D got when released).

We still have no reliable information about the feature set. For the time being, the following (suggested to us over the last 2 years) are likely to be EOS 6D Mark II features:

  • A newly developed sensor, 26MP is the latest rumoured resolution
  • Dual Pixel AF will be on board
  • Price around $2,000
  • Unlikely to have 4K video
  • Upgraded AF system
  • Touchscreen
  • Tiltable display
  • Digic 7
  • WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Larger viewfinder than EOS 6D
  • Slightly larger than EOS 6D
  • New battery grip BG-E21

The announcement of the EOS 6D Mark II will go along with the announcement for the Rebel SL2 and a new entry-level mirrorless camera.
