Canon says its latest EOS 90D is a fast and reliable DSLR, with a familiar, robust body ideal for sport and wildlife photographers. For everyday life, EOS M6 Mark II is a compact, yet powerful mirrorless delivering sharp images. Alongside the two new Canon RF lenses announced today, these models build on Canon’s popular EOS 80D DSLR and EOS M6 mirrorless cameras to provide more choice for enthusiasts across the line-up.

With Canon’s new EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II cameras, photographers can capture and share life’s most fleeting moments. Both models are equipped with Canon’s latest-generation DIGIC 8 processor which achieves fast processing speed, responsiveness and the latest in photo and movie functionality. The electronic shutter speed of 1/16000 second is great for shooting momentary subject movements, giving photographers confidence in time-sensitive shooting scenarios. With this shutter speed, the aperture can be opened wider to create a greater depth of fiel`d in ambient lighting.

Made for wildlife or sports photography, the EOS 90D shoots 10fps with autofocus tracking and 11fps in Live View. The optical viewfinder reduces lag time and enables the responsiveness needed to shoot wildlife, such as birds in flight, while an intelligent function gives complete visibility of the composition and shooting settings within the display. Where subjects are both quick and unpredictable, this fast frame rate and 58 L JPEG burst rate enables photographers to shoot continuously for a greater choice in imagery. EOS 90D also has an extended battery life with up to 1300 shots (CIPA standard), which allows enthusiasts to shoot all day, unencumbered by battery limitations.  

The mirrorless model, EOS M6 Mark II, is capable of a 14fps continuous frame rate and staggering 30fps RAW burst both modes with autofocus tracking, producing a quick and compact model which guarantees enthusiasts can photograph even the unexpected. To give photographers the best chance of shooting spontaneous action, this latest mirrorless camera from Canon has UHS-II card support with a burst rate of 80 L JPEG. Additionally, focus bracketing in both models makes it easy to achieve an extended depth of field by combining multiple shots in DPP.

Canon is also launching two RF lenses – the RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS USM and RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM – expanding the pioneering lens line-up for the EOS R System. The EOS 90D is now available to pre-order from Canon’s online store and both will be on general sale from September 2019.
