Photography Blog posted their Canon EOS R6 Mark II first impression review. They say:

Canon have made several notable connectivity improvements to the Mark II R6 including both faster 5GHz wi-fi and Bluetooth 5.0 support, and the ability to operate as a webcam or use the camera for live streaming via UVC/UAC, none of which its predecessor supports.

After using the new EOS R6 II for a couple of hours to try and capture fast-moving dancers, it’s clear that the new R6 II is a solid rather than spectacular upgrade of the original R6.

Considering that the 2020 model was already so good, though, that’s certainly no bad thing, with Canon perhaps sensibly choosing to refine rather than revolutionize what was already a very capable blueprint.

As usual after a Canon announcement, the interweb of speculations is running hot about what might come next from Canon.

There is more gear that is rumored, and here is what we might expect to happen.

The Canon EOS R100 is likely to be Canon’s next mirrorless camera to get announced. Here is the rumored specifications list:

  • 24.2mp APS-C Sensor
  • DIGIC X
  • 12fps (Mechanical)
  • 4K30p
  • Dual Pixel AF II
  • 1.04 4million dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen

The Canon EOS R1 is rumored since a while, and nothing new came up since a while. Here is what is rumored so far:

  • Canon EOS R1 to be the “new resolution king” in Canon’s lineup
  • Focus on 8K video, looking at the Cinema lineup
  • New form factor and ergonomics
  • New features

Another long rumored piece of gear is the high resolution EOS R model, named EOS R5d by the community. No serious intel so far.

A new entry in the list of wishes possible upcoming cameras, is the Canon EOS R7 C. This one is new and likely sprung out of the imagination of some fanboy. Don’t expect it before 2023/24.

What about lenses? These are rumored:

  • Canon TS-R 14mm f/4L
  • Canon TS-R 24mm f/3.5L
  • Canon RF 10-24mm f/4L USM
  • Canon RF 18-45mm f/4-5.6 IS STM

Boundless Creativity: Canon Announces the Canon EOS R6 Mark II Hybrid Full-Frame Camera

New RF135mm F1.8 L IS USM Lens and Speedlite EL-5 Flash Unit Also Announced

MELVILLE, NY, November 2, 2022 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today the launch of the new EOS R6 Mark II camera body, Canon’s new hybrid full-frame camera, and the first EOS R series full-frame mirrorless to take the step into the second generation. In addition, Canon is also introducing the new RF135mm F1.8 L IS USM mid-telephoto portrait lens and Speedlite EL-5 flash unit.

Ideal for advanced amateurs and featuring user-friendly functions, the EOS R6 Mark II camera is a high-performance hybrid camera that’s designed to capture decisive moments in both photo and video formats. It will satisfy a wide range of needs including professional production, vlogging, still pictures, filmmaking, and more. The camera is also well-suited for various photography subjects such as portrait, landscape, sports and wildlife. With the EOS R6 Mark II camera, creativity has virtually no borders.

As the market share leader for mirrorless cameras in the United States through Q3 of 2022[i], Canon continues to strengthen its innovative EOS R lineup with the new EOS R6 Mark II camera. The EOS R6 Mark II offers enhanced video and photo functions, such as in-body Image Stabilization, as well as specifications that can satisfy video production needs, such as controlled focusing.

“As a filmmaker who is always on the move, I need a camera I can trust in a multitude of environments as well as keeping up with my fast paced style of shooting and the new Canon EOS R6 Mark II does just that.” said Canon Co-Lab Creator, Sam Newton.

In addition to its compact size and ease of use, the EOS R6 Mark II camera also features:

  • 24.2 megapixels, full-frame image sensor
  • 4K 59.94p video recording
  • External 6K RAW video recording / Internal 4K video recording oversampled from 6K
  • High-speed burst shooting
  • Canon Log 3 maximizing dynamic range
  • Autofocus (AF): highly accurate subject detection with human, animal[ii], vehicle and automatic settings
  • Horses, trains, and airplanes are newly detectable through the use of deep learning technology
  • Continuous movie recording that exceeds 30 minutes
  • Up to 12 frames per second mechanical shutter
  • Up to 40 frames per second with electronic shutter
  • In-body Image Stabilization as effective as up to 8 stops faster shutter speed[iii]

Alongside the new camera body, Canon has announced a new addition to its growing line of innovative RF lenses – the RF135mm F1.8 L IS USM. This is a fixed focal length mid-telephoto portrait lens that is compatible with any EOS R-series camera. The RF135mm F1.8 L IS USM achieves beautiful and generous bokeh with the large-diameter F1.8 and comes equipped with in-lens Image Stabilization. The coordinated control of this IS coupled with the in-body IS present in the EOS R6 Mark II camera and other EOS R equipped IBIS cameras helps reduce camera shake and empowers photographers to express a feel of motion when shooting in dark areas with slow shutter speeds.

“The image quality and super smooth bokeh out of the new RF135mm F1.8 L IS USM lens is absolutely spectacular and superior to the EF version.” said Canon Explorer of Light, Vanessa Joy.

Additionally, Canon has announced the new Speedlite EL-5 flash unit, designed for superior compatibility with the new EOS R6 Mark II. The Speedlite EL-5 is Canon’s first flash product compatible with the new multi-function shoe present in the EOS R6 Mark II, EOS R3, EOS R7 and EOS R10 cameras.

“The new Canon Speedlite EL-5 flash will give that magical kiss of light that brings a picture to life and illuminates your creative vision.” said Canon Explorer of Light, Bob Davis.
