Canon EOS 6D Mark II introductory price to be $1,999? [CW3]

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Introductory Price To Be $1,999? [CW3]

Next Canon EOS 6D Mark II tidbit. I have been told (thanks) that the Canon EOS 6D Mark II will have an introductory price of $1,999.

Is this plausible? It is to some degree. The EOS 6D started at $2,099. May Canon have decided to give their entry level full-frame DSLR a lower price tag? Entirely possible. The EOS 6D was a best seller for years. If Canon manages to make another DSLR with so much appeal and is able to sell it below $2,000, well then they might well have a real blockbuster.

Please be aware that it is too early for reliable EOS 6D Mark II rumors. All the specifications leaked so far, while being plausible, should be taken with a grain of salt. Dual Pixel AF, touchscreen, 1080p/60fps, full tilt-able display, a new AF system, and that the EOS 6D Mark II will not have 4K are all specs leaked first here on Canon Watch. They are now reported all over the web. Unfortunately many big sites do a shitty research job and cite the wrong sources for their news. That sucks but I guess I have to live with it. However, below is the list with the EOS 6D Mark II specs that are rumored:

  • 24MP or 25MP sensor
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • 1080p/60
  • Dual SD card slots
  • NO 4K
  • Full tilt-able display
  • Touchscreen
  • NFC
  • Wifi
  • GPS
  • New AF system (19 points?)
  • Slightly smaller and lighter
  • Introductory price $1,999
  • Announcement expected Q2 2017

All Canon EOS 6D Mark II rumors.

Stay tuned…

Canon Rebel T7s and Rebel T7i coming next? [CW3]

Canon Rebel T7s And Rebel T7i Coming Next? [CW3]

Two weeks ago we reported that a bunch of Canon gear was registered at certification authorities around the globe. In this list we find two Canon DSLRs:

Single-lens reflex camera

These two DSLRs were rumored to be new Rebel T7i and Rebel T7s. This got now suggested once more, with the addition that the “new Rebels will launch in a ‘unique way’”. A plausible announcement date could be CP+ (February 2017).

Apparently there is no Rebel SL2 on the horizon, at least according to rumors, or the lack of. The last time we heard something about was in February 2016.

Canon EOS 6D Mark II coming after NAB 2017? [CW2]

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Coming After NAB 2017? [CW2]

The new rumored announcement date for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II now is Q2 2017. Until a few days ago, anyone was pointing to Q1 for the release. A Q2 2017 release could mean NAB 2017 (in April).

In the last days we got a bunch of Canon EOS 6D Mark II rumors. Together with the other features that are rumored, these are:

  • 24MP or 25MP sensor
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • 1080p/60
  • Dual SD card slots
  • NO 4K
  • Full tilt-able display
  • Touchscreen
  • NFC
  • Wifi
  • GPS
  • New AF system (19 points?)
  • Slightly smaller and lighter
  • Announcement expected Q1 2017

Dual Pixel AF, touchscreen, 1080p/60fps, full tilt-able display, a new AF system, and that the EOS 6D Mark II will not have 4K are all specs leaked here on Canon Watch. We got word the EOS 6D Mark II will have a 24MP sensor, others are suggesting a 25MP sensor.

However, it is way to early for reliable rumors about the Canon EOS 6D Mark II. The only hints we have is the specification list above, and we believe there will be an announcement in 2017. I posted the rumoured specifications because all in all they are plausible. I am pretty sure the announcement date will change a few more times.. So, take anything with a grain of salt. Rumors are always good for traffic, and we will get a lot of low credibility stuff before the reliable rumors emerge.

Yet another Canon EOS 6D Mark II tidbit: 1080p video at 60fps? [CW3]

Yet Another Canon EOS 6D Mark II Tidbit: 1080p Video At 60fps? [CW3]

We have another bit of information about the Canon EOS 6D Mark II, after the rumors of the last days (here and here).

The Canon EOS 6D Mark II is said to feature 1080p video at 60fps. So far we have the following, suggested spec list for the EOS 6D Mark II (based on latest rumors and what we have been told previously):

  • 24MP or 25MP sensor
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • 1080p/60
  • Dual SD card slots
  • NO 4K
  • Full tilt-able display
  • Touchscreen
  • NFC
  • Wifi
  • GPS
  • New AF system (19 points?)
  • Slightly smaller and lighter
  • Announcement expected Q1 2017

As posted before, I have been told the Canon EOS 6D Mark II will not have 4k video. All this 4k-hysteria is getting weird. It’s the first time we write about a feature a future camera will not have.

Canon EOS 6D Mark II to feature Dual Pixel Auto-Focus (DPAF) [CW4]

Canon EOS 6D Mark II To Feature Dual Pixel Auto-Focus (DPAF) [CW4]

After yesterday‘s bits about the Canon EOS 6D Mark II, we have a small addition today.

I have been told (thanks) by a good source that the Canon EOS 6D Mark II will have Canon’s first tier sensor based Auto-Focus system on board, Dual Pixel AF.

DPAF was first featured on the Canon EOS 70D. It’s available on the Canon EOS 80D, EOS 5D Mark IV, EOS M5, EOS 7D Mark II, EOS-1D X Mark II, and on some Canon Cinema cameras.

CW’s take: the rumor has a good chance to be reliable. I think a Canon EOS 6D Mark II without DPAF would not make much sense for Canon. For the time being these are the rumored Canon EOS 6D MArk II specs:

  • 24MP or 25MP sensor
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • Dual SD card slots
  • NO 4K
  • Full tiltable display
  • New AF system
  • Slightly smaller and lighter
  • Announcement expected Q1 2017

Stay tuned…

Canon EOS 6D Mark II coming with full tiltable screen, new AF system, no 4K, announcement Q1 2017 [CW3]

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Coming With Full Tiltable Screen, New AF System, No 4K, Announcement Q1 2017 [CW3]

I have been told (thanks) a few new bits about the EOS 6D Mark II.

According to our source, the EOS 6D Mark II will have a full tiltable display (like the EOS 80D), a new AF system with a “high number of AF points”, and will not sport 4K. Announcement is still suggested for Q1 2017.

Nothing really new here. Unfortunately the source wasn’t able to tell how many AF points the new AF system will have, which is information I am interest in. My guess is, the new AF system on the EOS 6D Mark II will be something comparable to the EOS 80D’s AF system.

Previously, these specs have been rumored:

  • Announcement first half of 2017 (CP+?)
  • 25MP sensor
  • Dual SD card slots
  • Might have 4K
  • Less weight and smaller size

I’m still somewhat puzzled with the 25MP (I’ve been told 24MP) and I am pretty sure it will not have 4K (sorry guys). No news about the announcement: it’s Q1 2017 as previously suggested.

Take it with a grain of salt. Given Canon’s secrecy and the fact it’s months before we will see the EOS 6D Mark II, it’s simply too early for EOS 6D Mark II specs we can take for granted. There will be many leaks and rumors in the next months. However, the reliable rumors about the EOS 6D Mark II will come just a few weeks before the announcement.

Stay tuned…
