Canon will not announce the EOS 6D Mark II by the end of 2016. This is what trusted sources have been reporting since the beginning of the year. Another top insider is now reporting the same thing, along with some specifications of the upcoming DSLR. Here is what we have learned so far about Canon 6D’s successor!
The internet is filled with strange rumors about the Canon 6D Mark II. We know because we reported some of them. While there is a chance that even the craziest rumors will become true, it seems like we might need to forget everything we learned about this DSLR. Either way, here are the latest rumors concerning the EOS 6D Mark II!
Canon is rumored to replace both the 5D Mark III and the 6D DSLRs with a single unit and it is not the 5D Mark IV / 5D X. According to this source, the 6D Mark II will serve as a successor to these cameras, as the new unit will gain more features when compared to the original 6D and will reduce the need for a true 5D Mark III heir.
Trusted sources are rather certain that Canon will reveal the 1D X and 5D Mark III successors by the end of this year, while the cameras will be released in 2016. Previously, it was said that the Canon 6D Mark II is set for a 2016 introduction, but now it seems like this DSLR will be coming to the market sometime in late 2015.
Canon is preparing for an important autumn. The company will allegedly be present at the PhotoPlus Expo 2015 where it is planning to display two of its upcoming high-profile DSLRs. According to an insider, both the Canon 1D X Mark II and 5DX will be revealed at the event and will begin shipping sometime in 2016.
Canon is working on a different strategy for its entry-level full-frame DSLR market. The EOS 6D is in this position for now, but the same thing cannot be said about its replacement. It appears that the so-called EOS 6D Mark II will have a higher rank and a higher price, thanks to some new features and miniaturization.
The gossip talks about Canon’s future EOS DSLRs are not coming to an end! There has been a lot of chatter within the rumor mill about the upcoming EOS cameras, but there is always room for more Canon 6D Mark II rumors. It seems like the DSLR will be welcomed by videographers as it will offer a couple of video-focused features!
A fresh batch of Canon EOS 6D Mark II specs have been leaked on the web contradicting a bunch of specifications revealed by another source a few days before. The source is reporting that the DSLR will actually come packed with a 28-megapixel sensor, while the previous leakster claimed that the sensor will not go over 24 megapixels.
Canon is now rumored to announce and release the 5D Mark IV in early 2016. The claims are coming in the wake of the latest Canon 6D Mark II details being leaked on the web. It appears that the 6D replacement will come sometime after the 5D Mark IV’s release date, which is set for the first quarter of 2016.
Canon will allegedly make some changes to its full frame DSLR line-up. The company is planning to move a couple of its cameras up the ranks. Sources are reporting that the Canon EOS 6D Mark II will have better features and will be more expensive than its predecessor, a path which could be followed by the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.
After having announced the EOS 7D Mark II at Photokina 2014, Canon is already working on its next cameras. According to the rumor mill, the list includes the Canon 6D Mark II and the 5D Mark IV. Both of them are said to employ Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, while the former is also said to feature a tilting display.
