Canon Announces EOS 6D Mark II Full-Frame and SL2 DSLR Cameras; More Info at B&H Photo

Photography News: Canon has just released two significant updates to their DSLR lineup -- the full-frame 26.2MP 6D Mark II, with improved performance all around, at $1,999, and the super-compact and lightweight Rebel SL2 at $549

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 29, 2017) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Canon EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR Cameras. These important updates to Canon's lineup offer numerous improvements to both image quality and performance, while retaining the essential features that made the original models significant. The 6D Mark II takes the position below the 5D Mark IV as a more accessible full-frame DSLR for consumers and professionals with exceptional image quality and improved speed. On the other side is the APS-C SL2, which retains the concept of being among the smallest DSLRs ever made and makes advancements across the board.

The highly-anticipated 6D Mark II has a focus on image quality with the implementation of a brand new 26.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 7 Image Processor to help capture stunningly sharp and vivid images with low noise, even with native sensitivities up to ISO 40,000 and that can be extended to ISO 102,400. In terms of speed, the 6D Mark II jumps up to 6.5 fps continuous shooting and makes a major improvement to autofocus with a 45-point All Cross-type AF System that more than quadruples the number of points of its predecessor. Also, it features Dual Pixel CMOS AF with phase-detection to provide a major boost to focusing performance in live view and video recording, which has also received a slight bump up to Full HD at 60p.

As a more lightweight option, the 6D Mark II keeps its size down but now has a further optimized grip for added comfort and, notably, it is now sealed to prevent intrusion of dust and water. The camera also becomes the first full-frame DSLR from Canon to sport a vari-angle LCD, in this case one that measures 3.0" and is a touchscreen. On the front of the body there is another small addition in the form of a Canon 3-pin connection and, as with many recent releases, it has Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth, and GPS built in. The 6D Mark II will be available as a body only, as a kit with the EF 24-105mm f/4 II, or as a kit with the EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6. Users can also pick up the BG-E21 Battery Grip for longer shooting times and more comfortable operation in portrait orientation.

Included with this camera body is the versatile and high-performing EF 24-105mm f/4 IS II USM Lens. This setup provides a wide-angle to telephoto zoom range that will cover most standard subject matter with ease while also offering a constant f/4 maximum aperture for consistent performance. The lens also packs in both image stabilization and a fast, near-silent ring-type USM AF motor for fast, accurate focusing performance.

The Canon BG-E21 Battery Grip for the EOS 6D Mark II DSLR. Able to hold up to two LP-E6/LP-E6N lithium-ion battery packs, this grip will effectively double the shooting time. Also, it features vertically-positioned controls, including a shutter release button, that will provide comfortable, intuitive operation. The battery grip has a durable construction to match that of the 6D Mark II and is both dust- and water-resistant. Additionally, it features a camera alignment pin hole for use with certain video heads and quick release plates.

Moving onto the Canon SL2, we see that it kept its exceptionally small form factor, making it a great choice for everyday carry or those looking to move up from a smartphone or point-and-shoot and prefer minimal weight. It received many updates, though most importantly it has received a current 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 7 Image Processor, both contributing to the creation of stellar images and native sensitivities up to ISO 25,600. Also, it is important to point out that even though it has such a small size, it still manages to offer a true optical viewfinder and dedicated 9-point AF system. Also, Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Full HD video at up to 60p are available in the SL2.
