    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.


    1). Canon EOS 6D Mark II


    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.


    3). Canon EOS 6D Mark II


    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.

      Canon has presented Speedlite 470EX-AI which is the first flash equipped with Auto Intelligent Bounce function.

      Auto Intelligent Bounce technology automatically calculates distance from the surrounding walls and  positions the speedlite head in order to obtain optimal light reflection. 

      A fully automatic flash mode minimally moves the head with each shot. Thanks to this, a photographer does not have to manually correct its settings every time. The flash is also equipped with a semi-automatic mode, which additionally adjusts the flash angle and the flash head during the change of orientation of the camera. 

      1). Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI 
      Apart from this interesting function,  Speedlite 470EX-AI is quite effective as for the speedlite of this type. The guide number of 47 (ISO 100) and a wide range of focal length covering from 24mm to 105mm (or 14mm, with the use of a built-in adapter), enable a wide range of flash, also with the wide-angle shots. 

      New Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI has the HSS synchronization mode, thanks to which it is possible to take photographs with the use of a flash, even with the exposure time which exceeds the maximum flash synchronization time. 

      2). Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI 

      Speedlite has wireless control functions, which enable remote triggering as a transmitter and a trigger. As could be expected of such speed lite, the flash is equipped with an LCD screen, facilitating quick reading of parameters and change of settings. A shortcut button  and a control knob ensure convenient access to the saved modes of work and make it possible to fully control the triggered light. 

      Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI is to appear on sale in April and it will cost $.
      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.
