The next Canon Mirrorless camera is the EOS M20, to be announced July 20/21?

Eos M10

I have been told (thanks) that the replacement for the Canon EOS M10 will be the Canon EOS M20.

An upcoming, new Canon mirrorless camera has already to some degree leaked. We know about unreleased Canon gear that has been registered at certification authority. Among these is the Canon EOS 6D Mark II (so we think), the Rebel SL2, and a new, supposedly entry-level MILC that we think may be the replacement for the EOS M10. We were told it will the Canon EOS M20.

It’s rather plausible that Canon will go on with their entry-level mirrorless line-up (though someone may object that all Canon MILCs are entry-level). Beside the suggestion about the moniker, we can be sure that there will be a replacement for the EOS M10.

July 20 or 21 has been suggested to us as the day when Canon will announce the EOS 6D Mark II, the Rebel SL2, and the EOS M20.

However, take it with a grain of salt, especially the moniker M20. This rumor comes from a new source.

Stay tuned.

EOS M6

From the conclusion:

While early EOS M-series mirrorless cameras underwhelmed a little, the new M6 has the features and image quality to be a serious contender in the hybrid market, as long as you don’t want 4k video.

For photographers considering an update from an older EOS M, M2, M3 or M10 model, the improved specifications make the M6 a worthwhile upgrade. While the exclusion of a built-in EVF is probably a deal breaker for serious enthusiasts, they aren’t the M6’s target market, with the larger DSLR-style EOS M5 still in the Canon lineup to meet their needs. Of course you can add the accessory EVF to the EOS M6, but that adds $200 to the price, makes it bulkier than the M5, and limits the use of the hotshoe for a mounted flash, so not ideal.

DPReview put the Canon EOS M6 under scrutiny and posted their full review.

According to the review, it seems the EOS M6 may become a vlogger’s favorite camera. From the conclusion:

If size is an ultimate priority, the M6 is a promising and powerful backup or second body for the established Canon shooter. It’s the company’s smallest camera to feature its latest 24MP APS-C sensor with Dual Pixel AF, the controls and touchscreen interface are a joy and many smaller EF (and -S) lenses pair up very nicely. A combination of camera lock-up and live view lags in continuous shooting are likely to be a little off-putting for more action-oriented photographers, but otherwise, the M6 is an easy recommendation.

Many Canon cameras are favorites for vloggers due to robust face tracking and pleasing (if not supremely detailed) output, and the EOS M6 proves fairly competent when used in this regard. But there are some compromises like iffy ergo’vlog’ics, and there are plenty of other mirrorless options to consider that shoot 4K video. It must be said though, none will offer the impressively reliable and easy-to-use continuous autofocus performance that Dual Pixel AF provides. Read the review at DPReview.

Image quality analysis and tests are here. The Canon EOS M6 gets a Silver Award and an overall score of 80%.
