New Canon 6D Mark II rumors are circulating on the web and they are reviving previous details, which said that the DSLR would offer improved videography features.
As predicted, the gossip talks about future Canon EOS DSLRs are becoming more numerous. The EOS 1D X Mark II and the EOS 5D Mark IV are on their way and they could become official by the end of 2015, although they will most likely go on sale in early 2016. The next year will also bring another full-frame DSLR from the Japanese company. The device in question is the successor to the EOS 6D, which has been mentioned in the rumor mill a few times. The most recent Canon 6D Mark II rumors are saying that the DSLR will feature a tilting screen in order to be more of use to videographers.
Latest Canon 6D Mark II rumors: the DSLR will employ a tilting screen
Shortly after the Photokina 2014 event, it was said that the EOS 6D Mark II was in development and that it would come packed with Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology when it becomes available on the market.
This is a useful feature for videographers as it increases autofocus speed in Live View mode or when looking through a camera’s electronic viewfinder. Since the 6D Mark II will feature an optical viewfinder, then the Dual Pixel technology would only be useful through the Live View.
In order to make it even better, the new Canon 6D Mark II rumors are stating that the camera will feature a tilting screen. This will allow users to capture stills as well as videos from unusual angles, so it would be a welcomed feature.
Canon 6D Mark II may also feature a 28MP sensor and built-in WiFi
The aforementioned information is not backed up by the company’s antics. The 6D Mark II will be a full-frame DSLR, but it will still be a low-end model and these devices do not come packed with too many video-centric tools. Nikon has launched a full-frame DSLR with a tilting screen, called D750, but it is a mid-level camera and the D610 sits below it.
Moreover, it is worth noting that the EOS M3, Canon’s latest mirrorless camera, does not have a viewfinder of any kind and it does not have Dual Pixel. As the EOS M3 did not get this technology, but the 6D Mark II gets it, then Canon’s decisions will raise some eyebrows.
The recently-leaked specs list of the 6D Mark II includes a 28-megapixel sensor, WiFi, NFC, GPS, 6fps burst mode, and maximum ISO of 204,800. Dual Pixel CMOS AF and tilting display could join them, but we should take these details with a pinch of salt for now!
