It seems like Canon is about to focus more on mirrorless cameras over the following year. Before we get to see the two new mirrorless cameras, the company might launch another iteration of the EOS M5. According to the rumors, the EOS M5 Mark II will feature some improvements over the previous model, such as 4K video.
It’s pretty much a given at this point that both Nikon and Canon will come crawling and fumbling into the world of mirrorless cameras. It’s simply become inevitable if they want to survive in a market that seems to be rapidly becoming Sony-centric. Many have switched over the past few years, and many more will do the same if Nikon and Canon don’t impress us with mirrorless tech. Soon.
The rumours of impending full-frame mirrorless cameras have been floating around for a little while for both manufacturers now. And while it may be a case of too little, too late, both will have to deliver something amazing. Both will also likely require brand new lenses. And spotted recently by the blog Hi-Low’s Note, a new Canon 16-28mm f/2.8 full-frame mirrorless lens patent offers some insight into what may be coming.
After releasing a few images of what is reported to be Canon’s next mirrorless offering, Nokishita have released a few more images of the EOS M50, along with a pretty extensive set of specs, too. Overall, it doesn’t look too bad. 10fps shooting, ISO 100-25600, 4K video, CC-Raw, and “Pupil detection AF” which sounds an awful lot like eye-tracking.
Last month there was the invitation to the secret dealer meeting about some new Canon mirrorless camera. Then we discovered that this might be the EOS M50, capable of shooting 4K UHD video. Now, thanks to Nokishita we’re seeing what are reported to be leaked images of the new camera, and 470 EX AI flash unit, along with some specs.
Canon has officially announced the latest addition to their mirrorless M series: Canon EOS M6. In addition to the two new DSLRs and the 18-55mm lens, they have also invested in the mirrorless line once again. In addition, they have also announced the optical viewfinder to go along. So, it turns out that the rumors were true: the new mirroless camera has arrived from Canon only a few months after its “older brother” M5. And what’s more, they seem to be pretty much alike.
Many Canon fans have been looking forward to trying Canon EOS 6D Mark II in 2017. But rumor has it that they may not see their wish fulfill. It appears that Canon might have something else in mind. Instead of launching a follow-up to the popular EOS 6D, the company might make a completely different move – launch their own full frame mirrorless camera.
