Mirrorless threaten DSLR cameras. It appears to be the future, and cameras using mirrors feel like part of the past. Is it really so? When will the transition take place? Will the Canon 6D Mark II be one of the first DSLR’s to die? Well, no. Finally it seems that the camera will be launched in 2017.
Yes there will be Canon 6D Mark II
Many photography specialized journalists have stated that the Canon 6D Mark II would not arrive next year because this camera would be replaced by a new high level mirrorless camera by Canon. However, it seems that will not be so.
The new Canon mirrorless camera will have a Full Frame sensor, being thus the first mirrorless of the company with a sensor in this format, arriving after the Canon EOS M5 that has an APS-C sensor.
Canon announced the renewal of one of its most advanced compact cameras, the PowerShot G9 X Mark II, which maintains the 1" sensor with 20 Mpx resolution, but includes the company’s latest image processor, the DIGIC 7.
The new Canon compact retains much of the features of the first Powershot G9 X –sensor, 3" touch screen, Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity–, and especially its 3x optical zoom lens, with an equivalent focal length of 28-84 mm and maximum apertures of f/2-4.9. Video recording is also maintained in Full HD resolution. The differences mainly focus on the replacement of the old DIGIC 6 image processor by the new DIGIC 7, which allows, among other improvements, to increase the burst from 6 to 8 fps. Also, for the first time in the Powershot series, Bluetooth Smart functionality is added, allowing fast pairing with compatible mobile devices.
