    Canon EOS 6D Mark II Announcement


    Canon EOS 6D Mark II has possibly been the most awaited Canon reflex camera this year. For many users, it has also become the greatest disappointment of the year. The first version of the camera, which was a hit in 2012, proved to be useful in almost every form of photography. It was also commonly used by video-makers. That's why the expectations were very high, especially taking into consideration the fact that 6D fans have waited for an upgrade for almost 5 years.

    The heart of a new Canon is 26-megapixel CMOS sensor, supported by the DIGIC7 processor, which is the fastest one in the producer's offer. Thanks to such a combination, we can take photographs with ISO sensitivity reaching 40.000 (expanded to 102.400) and the speed of 6.5 f/s.

    The camera, such as 5D Mark IV, has been equipped with a 45-points AF system (all cross-type points). What's more, in Live View mode we will be able to use a highly-rated Dual Pixel AF system, based on phase-detection sensor pixels.

    On the outside, the camera looks almost identical to its predecessor. A novelty in the design is a rotating 3'' LCD touch screen with the resolution of 1.04 Mp, which will surely make filmmakers happy.

    Apart from that, the camera is equipped with wireless communication module (Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth) and GPS. The housing is, of course, sealed.

    A big disappointment is the lack of dual memory card slot. The camera handles only one SD card. This slightly disqualifies it from purely professional usage, such as wedding photography.

    The second issue will for sure not make filmmakers happy. The camera does not record films in 4K – we only have a possibility of recording in Full HD, with the speed of 60f/s. It's a little strange since a large group of customers is constituted by video photographers and competitive companies mount this function in all cameras within this price range.

    The camera will appear on sale at the beginning of August and it will cost $1999 for the body, or $2599 and $3099 in the sets with EF 24-105mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM or EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lenses.

      What Brand of Camera Do You Use?
      Canon EOS M100 is a successor of the two-year-old Canon EOS M10. M100 offers some quite interesting functions for accessible price.

      The specification of EOS M100 can be a bit surprising, taking into consideration Canon’s current policy. The heart of the camera is the 24Mp APS-C sensor, which is supported by the newest DIGIC 7 processor. Thanks to such a set, we can take photographs within ISO sensitivity range of 100 – 25600 with the speed of 6f/s or with full support of continuous autofocus with the speed of 4f/s.

      1). Canon EOS M100
      Dual Pixel AF, known from more expensive models, is responsible for focus adjustment. It should perfectly fulfill its function in both photography and video recording. Dual Pixel AF is possibly the best autofocus system available on the market at the moment.

      2). Canon EOS M100
      When it comes to the design and construction, the camera hasn’t undergone significant changes when compared to its predecessor. Of course, we have a folding 3’’ touch screen, and wireless functions, for which there is a dedicated button. The dimensions of the new mirrorless camera are 108x67x35mm and it weighs 302g.

      3). Canon EOS M100
      As one can easily guess, the camera does not record movies in 4K, but the fact that it offers a possibility of recording them in Full HD 1080p with the speed of 60f/s might be slight consolation.

      4). Canon EOS M100
      The camera is to appear on the market in October. It will be sold in 3 color versions and in 2 sets: for $600 in a set with the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens or for $950 in a set with the 15-45mm and 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM lenses.
      In a set with new macro lenses, Canon also presented the next version of MT24EX flash. Canon MT26EXRT Twin Lite, as the new model is called, is a perfect proposal for macro, product and food photographers. 
      As can be "easily" concluded from its name, the flash has a guide number of 26 for ISO 100 and the power of the flash can be reduced to 1/512 of its maximum power.

      Full reload takes 5.5 seconds, with the use of regular batteries, and 2.5 seconds, with the use of CPE4N batteries. Besides, the flashes are equipped with supporting diodes and diffusors. 

      2). Canon MT26EXRT Twin Lite 
      Of course, we also have a head with removable rings in a set, thanks to which we will be able to mount the full set on various lenses. 

      3). Canon MT26EXRT Twin Lite 

      Canon MT26EXRT Speedlight is to appear on sale in November. It will cost $900.
