Canon EOS M6 Mark II Review (particularly good for street & travel, Photography Blog)

Canon Eos M6 Mark Ii

Photography Blog posted their full Canon EOS M6 Mark II review. The EOS M6 Mark II is Canon’s latest APS-C mirrorless camera.

From the conclusion of the Canon EOS M6 Mark II review:

If you’re looking to get into interchangeable lens photography to exert a little more control over image functions and settings than your smartphone will allow, then the Canon EOS M6 Mark II is a good and straightforward enough place to start.

It allows you to begin your photographic ‘journey’ by pointing and shooting, before then gradually work your way around more precise manual controls as your understanding of the camera and personal skillset improves.

This camera is particularly good for street and travel photography, where its swift auto focusing, subject tracking, compact size and unobtrusive looks work in the photographer’s favour.

Press release:

Simply incredible, incredibly simple: professional-looking photos are effortless with the Canon EOS M200 

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Wednesday 25 September 2019: Canon Europe announces the highly anticipated successor to the hugely popular EOS M100 – the Canon EOS M200. Upgrades to this mirrorless camera include the latest Canon DIGIC 8 processor, improved autofocus and the addition of 4K movie. Complete with a guided user interface, boundless creative functions and vertical movie shooting, it has never been easier to step up from a smartphone and start sharing stand-out images and video with the world.

Capture sharp and striking images effortlessly

Superior storytelling is made effortless with the Canon EOS M200. Its guided user interface is perfect for first-time camera users, with useful on-screen guidance as well as hints and tips on how to get the best results. The camera’s APS-C sized 24.1 megapixel sensor is larger than that of a typical smartphone, producing highly detailed images that look sharp and striking, even when cropped or enlarged for sharing on social media.

The camera features Dual Pixel CMOS AF – a Canon-developed technology that delivers professional-looking movies and images, by keeping moving subjects in sharp focus with a pleasing background blur – perfect for capturing pin-sharp memories at a party, festival or concert with low-light AF sensitivity down to EV-4. The addition of Eye Detection AF also makes capturing the natural expressions of friends and family simple, by automatically maintaining focus on a subject’s eyes.

The introduction of Canon’s latest processor, DIGIC 8, delivers new functionality as well as great quality. With a maximum ISO speed of 100-25600 (extending to ISO 51200 equivalent), DIGIC 8 guards against image blur and reduces image noise when shooting in darker locations, such as a bar or music venue.

DIGIC 8 also adds a new dimension to storytelling, powering 4K movie for the highest level of movie clarity. The Canon EOS M200 takes the storytelling potential one step further with a 4K time-lapse feature and the ability to take 4K stills from 4K movies, perfect for capturing memories in detail.

The LCD touchscreen on the Canon EOS M200 flips 180 degrees, helping elevate selfies beyond what is achievable with a smartphone. The camera’s Self Portrait mode also allows settings such as background blur and brightness to be easily adjusted in real time. A first on an EOS camera, the movie record button is displayed on the touchscreen when in Movie Mode, ideally positioned for easy operation when recording a vlog with the screen tilted 180 degrees. Movies can even be recorded and played back on mobile in a vertical orientation so they are optimised for sharing on social media after they are captured.

Unlock your creativity:

The Canon EOS M200 features an array of settings and tools empowering those stepping up from a smartphone to capture memories in artistic and imaginative ways. It includes Canon’s Creative Assist feature, a suite of effects, filters and colour adjustment tools to apply to photographs when composing an image or after it has been taken. It is also possible to add effects to the photos taken, just like a photo app, with a range of creative filters including Grainy black & white, Fish-eye and Soft Focus.

Compatibility with the affordable and creative range of EF-M lenses expands the potential of the Canon EOS M200 even further. A variety of image expressions are made possible with wide-angle, telephoto and macro lenses EF-M lenses and the entire EOS lens range can be accessed with an EF-EOS M Mount Adapter.

Share special moments anywhere, anytime

Once content has been captured, customised and is ready to be shared with the world, the Canon EOS M200 connects seamlessly with smart devices¹ via Bluetooth®² and Wi-Fi using the free Canon Camera Connect app for iOS and Android. From here, images and videos can be downloaded, reviewed and shared manually. Images can also be automatically sent to a smart device as they are taken. As long as the camera is in Bluetooth range, a constant connection to a smart device can be maintained, even when the camera is switched off.

The Canon Camera Connect app also facilitates shooting remotely with a smartphone or tablet, perfect for capturing group shots or a hands-free selfie.

Canon EOS M200 To Be Announced Within A Month, Report

Canon Cameras EOS M100 Canon Eos M200

Nokishita reports that Canon will soon announce a new mirrorless camera with APS-C sensor, likely within a month.

The Canon EOS M200 will be available in black and white, and come as kit with the EF-M 15-45mm IS STM lens.

Is the Canon EOS M200 going to replace the EOS M100? In any case it will be an entry level mirrorless camera.

We are also expecting Canon to announce a high resolution EOS R camera, all rumors are listed here. More Canon rumors are listed here. Stay tuned.

What’s Coming Next From Canon?

Top 10 Cameras Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R Pro Eos R Canon Lens Explorers Of Light

After the announcement of the Canon EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II, what’s coming next?

There is gear we know is scheduled to release. Let’s see.

Where is the high resolution Canon EOS R camera?

Rumored to be released in Fall 2019, there still are no reliable information. Suggestions we got say the high res EOS R will have a resolution much higher than the Sony a7R IV (61MP), another rumor we got suggested a resolution around 80MP. Will this EOS R model be released in 2019? We still think it will

And what about the “pro/sport oriented” EOS R camera?

In this case we have even less information, and no reliable data so far. What we know is that it should be a camera equivalent to the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II. Another bit we know, is that it will most likely be released in 2020, maybe before the Summer Olympics.

Will the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III be released in 2020?

Yes, this seems to be a sure thing. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III will be announced before the Summer Olympics 2020. Field testing is rumored since February. No specifications have been leaked so far.

What about the Canon EOS 7D Mark III?

We are still investigating the claim that the Canon EOS 90D replaces both the EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II. The EOS 90D got some features previously featured on the 7D series, like a joystick, magnesium alloy, better weather sealing (compared to EOS 80D). For the time being it is not entirely clear what the future of the 7D lineup will be. On the other hand the EOS 90D is not advanced enough to be seen as a full fledged EOS 7D Mark II replacement. Another thing we wonder is: will Canon give up the highly popular 7D series? Seems unlikely to some degree.

Will there be an EOS R model with APS-C sensor?

No. This is an insistent and silly rumor that won’t disappear. A rumor not making any sense. Canon has a well selling APS-C mirrorless lineup with the EOS M system, and there is no reason to believe it will disappear. The EOS M6 Mark II has just been released and it’s common opinion that Canon is taking the EOS M system seriously.

Will there be more lenses for the EOS M system?

Yes, though we have yet no reliable intel to share.

Will there be a replacement for the Canon EOS M5?

Rumor has it that no, there will not. We are still investigating.

Will there be more lenses for the Canon EOS R system?

Yes, plenty. Canon is heavily investing in the EOS R system. We found a lot of patent applications for Canon RF mount lenses. Two new lenses have just been released, more are set to come. We are still waiting for Canon to release already announced Canon RF lenses.

And lenses for the Canon EF mount?

Canon stated that they will not continue EF lens development in 2019 (and maybe 2020). The EOS R system is where Canon is now investing most R&D resources.

What else can we expect?

The Canon C500 Mark II is coming, likely in 2020. One more Canon Cinema camera is likely. Some PowerShots are also likely for 2020.

Stay tuned, more to come.
