It’s been rumored for a while that Canon EOS 6D Mark II is coming out to replace the 6D. The latest information from Nokishita Camera reports that this camera will have an articulating screen and that it will be bigger in size than its predecessor. According to the rumors, 6D Mark II is almost there, and the specs have already leaked for the Canon’s new model.

It’s already been speculated that 6DMark II will have articulated touchscreen, and judging by the latest reports, this is most likely to be the case. As Canon Rumors reports, this camera will be larger that 6D – it will have a bit deeper body. Here is the list of the specs, as reported by Nokishita Camera:

  • Digital single-lens reflex camera
  • made in Japan
  • SKU: 1897C003AA, 1897C010AA, 1897C015AA, 1897C022AA
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Reverse back and open 180 degrees Back LCD (Articulating Screen)
  • Size (Sample machine): W 144.0 mm x H 111.8 mm x D 75.5 mm(The EOS 6D size is: W 145.0 mm x H 112.0 mm x D 71.0 mm)

Some of the specs have already been rumored before, and this is the list, as reported on Canon Rumors:

  • 24-28mp Full Frame CMOS sensor
  • 45 AF Points (all cross-type)
  • 6 FPS
  • 4K video
  • DIGIC 7
  • 5 stops better than Canon 6D at higher ISO
  • Low-light autofocus (centre point) at -5 EV
  • Built-in Wi-Fi

  • Dual SD card slots
  • 100% coverage optical viewfinder
  • New connectivity feature on 6D Mark II
  • Price will be a bit expensive than 6D
  • Slightly smaller form factor and a reduction in weight

Since 6D Mark II was first rumored to arrive, there have been many speculations about this camera: from the leaked specs to the assumption that it may be replaced by a mirrorless model. According to Canon Rumors, 6D Mark II will be announced this July, and the shipping will begin in August. So, if this information is true, I guess we won’t wait much longer to see what Canon has prepared.

      I have all EF lenses, ready for full frame :D (in fact I already own an old 5D).

    I look forward to all the gear heads trading in their 6Ds and pushing the used prices down – I’ve got a 6D already, be nice to have a matched pair for events

    God Canon please no gimmicky articulating/tilting screen. Hopefully it’s still just rumor at this point.

    Honestly, this camera needs the articulating screen. I’ve been saying to myself all along it needs to be a full frame 80d! Dual pixel focus, articulating screen, full frame sensor, this will become the ultimate vlogging camera! And that articulating screen on the 80d is fantastic when paired with DP focus for stills. It’s also nice having the option to flip it around in the bag for protection.

      Agreed! I moved from 5D2 to 70D only for the new tech and Dual Pixel AF. I love it, but I *miss* full frame very much.

      6D2 might just be perfect for me. I do hope they cram 4k30 into it (even better with C-LOG), but I’m not sure if they will. Hopefully they do so in trying to prove the 5D mkIV 4k-crap was a one-time thing.
