Canon EOS M6 specification leaked [CW5]

Canon EOS M6

A list of specifications of he upcoming Canon EOS M6 leaked at Nokishita Camera. As you can see, no mention of Dual Pixel AF.

  • Approximately 24.2 million pixels
  • DIGIC 7
  • 49 points AF points 
  • 7 frames/sec (AF fixed: 9 frames/sec)
  • ISO 100 to 25600
  • Shutter speed: 1/4000-30, valve shutter speed synchronized with strobe = 1/200 second
  • Video: Full HD, HD, VGA
  • 3″ tilt type touch panel
  • Size: 112.0 × 68.0 × 44.5 mm
  • Recording medium: SD/SDHC/SDXC card
  • Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • Color: Black/Silver
  • Kit: Body – EF-M 15-45mm kit – EF-M 18-150mm kit (double zoom kits and others are also sold in some countries)

I still believe the EOS M6 will have Dual Pixel AF, even if it isn’t mentioned in the spec list.

An image of the new remote control BR-E1n also leaked.

Stay tuned…

What will the Canon EOS M6 look like (Dual Pixel AF, 24MP sensor)?

This is the EOS M5. Canon’s next mirrorless camera (EOS M6) is coming soon.

It’s a matter of days before Canon will announce the Canon EOS M6, Canon latest addition to the company’s mirrorless line-up.

No one saw the EOS M6 coming, and no features have leaked so far. However, I got some bits (thanks) and will now try to sum it up.

The Canon EOS M6 will most likely have a feature set very similar to the  EOS M5, with the exception of the built-in EVF. I am pretty sure the EOS M6 will have no built-in EVF. The EOS M6 will have a 24MP sensor, which appears to be the new standard resolution for Canon’s APS-C cameras. We also got a suggested frame rate, which is said to be above or around 6fps.

Will the EOS M6 feature Dual Pixel Auto-Focus? I have been told it will, which seems to be something we can expect.

The rest if the specifications I got is too messed up to be replicated here. All I can be sure for now is that the EOS M6 will have an articulated touchscreen (similar or the same as the EOS M3.

Back to the features of the EOS M6. You can expect something between the EOS M3 and the EOS M5, i.e. more features than the EOS M3 and less than the EOS M5. However, to my knowledge the feature set of the EOS M6 will be closer to the EOS M5 than to the EOS M3.

Stay tuned…

The Canon EOS M6 is the company’s next mirrorless camera [CW5]

The EOS M5 (image above) will soon have a new sibling, the EOS M6.

Well this comes as a surprise, at least the moniker does. As information leaked at Nokishita Camera suggests, Canon’s next mirrorless will be the Canon EOS M6.

No image so far, but a list of specifications (also for the new electronic viewfinder, the EVF-DC 2). Since the spec lists come together I wonder if the EOS M6 will have a built-in EVF. Might it be a consumer-oriented model? The fact that there are two color options makes me think it will have a more reduced feature set than the Canon EOS M5.

  • EOS M6
    • Color: Black/Silver
    • Body only, kit with EF-M 15-45mm lens, kit with EF-M 18-150mm lens, double zoom lens kit
    • SKU: 1724C001 (black), 1725C001 (silver) – [The three-digit number behind C changes according to the selling country and kit]
  • EVF-DC 2
    • Color: Black/Silver
    • SKU: 1727C001 (black), 1882C001 (silver)

That’s all for now. Stay tuned because I am sure there will soon be more information.

A better 18-135mm IS STM lens coming for the EOS M system? [CW2]

Eos M5

We know Canon will release new lenses for the EOS M system in 2017. Rumor had it, there will be at least one prime lens to come (though two are rumored, a 35mm and a 50mm).

I got word (thanks) that Canon may announce an 18-135mm IS STM lens of “higher quality” than the available EF-M lenses. I interpret “higher quality” as referring to a lens with better optics and a constant and possibly fast aperture. Unfortunately, I have not received any specification for such a lens, and I didn’t spot any patent for an EF-M 18-135mm IS STM lens so far.

There is only one thing you can be sure about: there will be new lenses for the EOS M system in 2017, we just have no idea what lenses to expect.

Stay tuned…

A new entry-level Canon EOS M camera coming soon? [CW4]

Eos M

Hot times for Canon mirrorless rumors. A new murmuring surfaced, and we are here to report it.

Latest rumor has it that Canon will announce a new EOS M camera in February 2017, just before CP+. This new EOS M is said to be more entry-level than the EOS M5, with a form factor similar to the EOS M3. A new entry-level EOS M camera to be added to the line-up?

New Canon EOS M cameras and other kits will likely come in two variants, one with the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM, and the other kit with the EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM.

What about new EF-M lenses? There will be new EF-M lenses in 2017, but we do not have reliable information at the time being.

There are more Canon cameras I expect to be announced ahead of CP+, PowerShot cameras and new Canon Rebel DSLRs.

Stay tuned…
