Canon EOS 6D Mark II and EOS 200D Announced



This morning Canon pulled the covers off two new devices: an update to its most affordable full-frame DSLR in the shape of the EOS 6D Mark II, and the entry-level EOS 200D. Wex was given a preview of both devices, find out more about each of them below…



Canon EOS 6D Mark II





Pitched by the brand as the ideal next-step from their APS-C models, the 6D Mark II overhauls the specifications of its 2012 forebear with a host of additions including the first touch and tilt display found on a Canon full-frame.

This enthusiast-aimed camera is fitted with a 26.2MP CMOS sensor, a DIGIC 7 processor and a 45-point all-cross-type autofocus system.

While the lack of 4K video recording may surprise some, its feature set and price point are unlikely to disappoint those who consider themselves predominately stills shooters, but who were put off by the 5D Mark IV’s higher price tag.
