Canon Announces 6D Mark II and Rebel SL2

Canon made a highly anticipated announcement this morning, revealing updates to two of their most popular cameras of the past decade: the 6D Mark II and Rebel SL2.

Canon EOS 6D Mark II

The new 6D has a brand new Canon 26.2-megapixel Full-frame CMOS sensor, paired with a DIGIC 7 image processor and Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS phase-detection AF with 45 cross-type autofocus points. There's also built-in Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth and GPS as well as dust- and water resistance.

One other exciting feature is the 3.0-inch Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD. It's not the first one on a Canon DSLR but it is the first on a Canon full-frame DSLR. It doesn't seem like a big deal but once you have one on a camera, you wonder why they aren't on all cameras.

Other features include a 6.5fps high-speed continuous shooting mode and an ISO range of 100-40000.

The EOS 6D Mark II is scheduled to be released in early August with an MSRP of $2,599.99 (body only) and $4,049.99 as a kit with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM II.

Canon EOS Rebel SL2

The EOS Rebel SL2, Canon's sequel to the world's smallest, lightest DSLR, is aimed at those who are looking for an upgrade on their smartphone or point-and-shoot camera. The SL2 is built around Canon's 24.2-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, the same one found in many of Canon's current APS-C line-up.

For photographers new to Canon DSLRs, the Feature Assistant shows users on rear 3.0-inch Vari-angle LCD how adjusting camera settings affect the image.

It also has Dual Pixel CMOS AF, DIGIC 7 image processor, and built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth.

The EOS Rebel SL2 is scheduled for late July with an MSRP of $899.99 as a kit with a EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens.
