As we know the users are eagerly waiting for the replacement of the smallest and lightest digital full frame DSLR Canon EOS 6D, which was announced on 17th September, 2012 and till date it has gained the renowned name and fame in DSLR cameras world.
But after more than 3 years, we have high expectation that the people will see the Canon EOS 6D Mark II in Q2, 2017. Hence it means the users have to wait for few more days for its arrival.
The reason behind the late arrival is due the expected launching of EOS 5D Mark IV in September/October, 2016.And hence it is not possible for the Canon to announce Canon EOS 6D Mark II in the similar time zone due to less time in the year 2016 and also it will be a strategy for Canon to push the launching date of Canon EOS 6D Mark II in different period so that sale of both the cameras will not be affected.
According to the unknown source, the EOS 6D Mark II will sport the similar resolution of 24MP as expected in the EOS 5D Mark IV.
According to the recent rumor the Canon EOS 6D Mark II will come with:
- 24mp Full Frame CMOS
- ISO range 204800 or more
- Improved Auto-focus performance (sensitivity upto -5 EV)
- Two AF system are under testing under different prototypes
- WiFi with NFC and GPS
- Wireless battery charging with the Qi standard
- Internally Canon switches from VxWorks (Could have meant DRYOS) to an Android-based embedded OS, 6D Mark II will be the first Android-based camera from Canon.
- Dual-pixel autofocus technology
- Swivel LCD a-la-70D
- Anti-flicker a-la-7DII
