The Canon 6D Mark II announcement event will take place during the first quarter of 2017, meaning that the DSLR will not be released before spring next year.
There has been a lot of speculation regarding the launch of 6 EOS 6D’s replacement. A lot of false information has circulated over the web, even about the Canon 6D Mark II announcement.
Thankfully, trusted sources had confirmed that the device will not be released in 2016 sometime this summer. At that point, all cards were on the table, including a possible launch at the end of 2017. Well, now it seems like the camera is coming early next year.
Canon 6D Mark II announcement event set for Q1 2017
When a device has a long way before becoming official, you know that you must treat everything with a pinch of salt. Unfortunately, a lot of different sources reported a lot of different things, making it hard to trust either of them.
The good thing is that there are plenty of reliable insiders. This time, one of them reported back with some details
We do not have an exact announcement or release date, yet, but words is on the street that the EOS-series DSLR will being shipping sometime in spring 2017. This is good news for people who are waiting for a cheaper Canon DSLR with a full-frame sensor.
The original 6D is still available on the market four years after its unveiling at the Photokina 2012 event. Usually, it does not take that long for a lower-end device to be replaced, but the digital imaging market woes continue as companies are struggling to increase camera sales.
6D Mark II will be more compact, lighter than its predecessor
The same source had some things to say about the DSLR’s specs list. It is believed that Canon will put a 25-megapixel full-frame sensor into the EOS 6D Mark II along with a couple of SD card slots.
A decrease in size and weight is coming, too. The 6D successor will have a smaller body and will be lighter. This is definitely a big plus, as photo gear can get pretty heavy and will become too much of a burden after a while.
These are all the details about the device. More will likely be leaked online shortly before the Canon 6D Mark II announcement event, therefore you should stay tuned for Camyx for them!
