Canon EOS M6

The Mirrorless market for Canon has relatively been good as its EOS M5 has so far been well recieved as it packs basically the same specs as the 80D in a more advanced body. The new M6 , a camera that basically mirrors the M5's specs has now officially been released .

The EOS M6 , as the name suggests , sits at one tier below the M5 according to Canon's lower the better numbering scheme. The camera , packed with Canon's 24.2 mp APSC sensor also features Dual pixel AF on board as well . The camera also features a maximum shooting rate of 7 fps and 9 fps on autofocus lock .The camera also features a ISO range of 100- 25600 and electronic 5 axis stabilization .

The biggest and probably the most odd "feature" is the lack of a EVF . This is apparently a strange cost saving feature as the optional EVF DC 2 hotshoe mounted viewfinder which is an additional $249 . This evf is sold seperately and it features a 2.36million dot display,but if you are not in a position to dish out more money , you can always use the 3" touchscreen display which flips upright unlike the awkward M5 which has a flip down display which makes things difficult when using a screw attachment .
On the subject of video , the phase detection AF on the camera is probably most welcome as it would help with tracking subjects .The camera sadly like the M5 only has 1080p video recording which in a time of 4K mirrorless cameras would probably make this more of a photo oriented camera rather than a video one .

The EOS M6 ,like its other EOS M brothers , will feature the ability to work well with EF ,EFS and the small range of EFM lenses availablr now . The camera is expected to be sold with Body only options as well as lens options at a price which starts at $779 - roughly $200 lower than the EOS M5 model (body only) ,but without the $250 evf , the camera does sit at a somewhat strange position in the mirrorless market which is currently occupied by Sony's A5000/5100 .
