Canon Unveils the Ultra-High-Speed Mirrorless Camera EOS M6 Mark II, High-performance DSLR EOS 90D and Two Professional f/2.8 RF Lenses

    HONG KONG, 28 AUG 2019Canon Hong Kong today proudly announces the launch of the new EOS M6 Mark II, EOS 90D, RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM in response to a wider range of user needs. EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless camera and EOS 90D DSLR camera are two new high speed and high resolution APS-C digital cameras offering tremendous improvements from their predecessors. Both cameras are equipped with a brand new high speed 32.5 Megapixels Canon-developed APS-C CMOS image sensor that delivers unrivalled image quality and high resolution photos with Canon Color Science. With the new CMOS image sensor and powerful DIGIC 8 image processor, both cameras are able to capture stunning movies in uncropped 4K UHD at 30p and Full HD at 120p.

    EOS M6 Mark II The EOS M6 Mark II is an ultra-high-speed mirrorless camera for photo enthusiasts to catch fleetingly-fast moments. The continuous shooting speed is improved to 14 FPS and a new 30 FPS RAW Burst mode is also added to capture split-second action. It also features enhanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF to enable fast and accurate autofocus with expanded area and the capability to shoot in dark environments with ease. New controls as found in EOS R system are added including “AF-ON button”, “DIAL function”, “Fv mode” and “Focus model switch” are added to enhance operability with tactile controls at user’s fingertips while inheriting the EOS M series concept of “compact, lightweight and easy to carry around”.

    EOS 90D Perfect for hobby-holics seeking a high performance camera with exceptional control and durability for capturing their hobbies in action such as wildlife, motorsports, railway and aviation, EOS 90D DSLR camera offers a 45-point all cross-type AF system, 10 FPS high speed continuous shooting and a no-time-delay optical viewfinder to track fast-moving subjects with pin-sharp focus. Similar to other EOS DSLR, EOS 90D also incorporates Dual Pixel CMOS AF as a secondary AF system during Live View shooting and allows user to shoot in high and low angles by the side-opening vari-angle LCD monitor. The EOS 90D also features a new multi-controller from EOS-1D X Mark II and an upgraded shutter release mechanism equivalent to professional EOS models for users to enjoy the responsive controls unique to DSLR cameras.

    At the same time, Canon further expands its RF lens range with the launch of RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM – the long-awaited f/2.8L professional zoom lens series for RF mount. Being the first Canon’s full-frame f/2.8 wide-angle zoom lens and standard zoom lens to equip with image stabilizer respectively, both new RF lenses take the full advantage of RF mount’s large diameter and short back focus distance and offer exceptional image quality and edge-to-edge high resolution throughout the entire zoom range. RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM, with its maximum wide-angle extended to 15mm, meets the needs of shooting landscapes, astronomy and architectural images in exceptional full-frame quality. On the other hand, the highly versatile standard zoom range of RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM is ideal choice for photographing landscape, portraits and wedding. The new RF lenses will offer incredible image quality for professional photographers and enthusiasts looking to get the perfect shot with the EOS R system.
