Canon’s Family of Mirrorless Cameras Gets a New Addition

February 17, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Canon is expanding its mirrorless camera lineup with a new addition. The company has unveiled the new EOS M6, which basically appears like a modified version of the currently available EOS M5 mirrorless camera.

Compared to the latter, the new entry features almost the same specs. The EOS M6 features a 24.2 MP APS-C CMOS sensor inside that’s paired with a Digic 7 processor along with 100-25,600 ISO. The major difference lies with the absence of the built-in electronic viewfinder that was included in the M5.

Instead of having an inbuilt viewfinder, Canon has made it optional for the M6. And there’s a perk in having it attached. Users will be able to tilt the 3-inch screen to aid you capture the images at more beautiful angles.

As with the connectivity, the M6 lines up Bluetooth, NFC and Wi-Fi to have the images shared through devices. The camera can also be controlled via the companion app that has been made available for Android and iOS devices – Canon Connect.

Canon EOS M6 will be coming out to the market only by April. The body alone is tagged with a price-tag of $780, while you can get the lenses bundled with prices starting at $900. Along with the M6, Canon has also revealed its two new members in the EOS family – Rebel T7i for those looking to upgrade from their entry-level DSLR cameras, and the 77D for the ‘advanced amateurs’.

Both the DSLRs features the Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology from Canon, coupled with the 45-point cross-type autofocus system. The sensor and processor used in both is the same that’s used in M6. Similar to M6, both Rebel T7i and 77D won’t be making its way onto the market until April.
