When Canon announced the EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II cameras recently, a lot of people were wondering whether or not it would shoot 24 frames per second. Canon has now released PDF versions of the user manuals for both cameras, and they both seem to confirm that neither camera will shoot 24 frames per second at either 4K or 1080p resolution.
It’s been leaked about for weeks, along with the EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless camera, but now the Canon EOS 90D is official. It’s a 32.5-megapixel APS-C camera that shoots 4K UHD video without cropping. At least, no cropping beyond the already cropped APS-C sized sensor. It has the “Vari-Angle” (flippy out) Touchscreen LCD like its predecessors, and only costs $1,200.
Canon caved in. Up until a year ago, every Canon-oriented post was accompanied by a slew of comments demanding a good mirrorless from Canon. And finally, Canon caved in. Not to the comments on this blog, I guess, but to the unavoidable progress, and the demand from the masses. Canon released the EOS-R line. So does it make any sense for Canon to release a DSLR after already jumping into the mirrorless world? I mean, they just leaked a 90D DSLR…. Tech Radar thinks that the answer is yes, and has some compelling reasons. You can hope over to TR and read the full story, let me bring some of their points here, as I would love to know if you think this move from Canon makes any sense.
Word of an impending Canon 90D has been floating around for a couple of months now. Initially, many suspected that Canon might be looking to announce replacement models for the EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II. More recently, however, it looks like Canon is planning to kill off the 7D line entirely, replacing both models with a single new camera.
Now, Canon Watch is reporting that an EOS 90D might be announced as soon as next month. But it may not be a 90D. The New Camera says they’ve also received reports that an EOS M5 Mark II might be on the way, instead. Or, we may hear announcements for both.
