CANON HAS ANNOUNCED the EOS 6D Mark II and EOS 200D, both available now. The EOS 6D Mark II is the successor to the four- year- old EOS 6D, so enthusiasts can expect an extensive number of improvements. It boasts a full- frame 26.2- megapixel CMOS sensor with extended dynamic range and a 45- point AF system using Dual Pixel CMOS AF. The DIGIC 7 image processor is claimed to aid more accurate AF tracking and allows for an impressive shooting rate of 6.5 frames- per- second. Videographers will be disappointed that Full HD is the highest resolution for movie recording, although 4K time- lapses are possible, which along with the integral intervalometer allows for creative options such as star trails in 4K. It's also the first full- frame EOS to include built- in five- axis movie stabilisation to reduce shake when shooting handheld. Other features include a vari- angle 3in LCD monitor with 1,040,00- dot touchscreen, top ISO rating of ISO 102,400, GPS, Wi- Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. The EOS 6D Mark II costs £ 2,000 body- only or £ 2,400 with EF 24- 105mm STM.
Aimed at first- time DSLR users coming from smartphones or compacts, the EOS 200D is a compact and lightweight gateway into high- quality photography. It sports a 24.2- megapixel APS- C CMOS sensor, DIGIC 7 processor, 5fps shooting rate and a 3in LCD monitor with touchscreen. A guided interface is available to aid novices, while Bluetooth, Wi- Fi and NFC allows for easy image transfer to smartphone or tablet. It's available for £ 580 body- only or £ 680 with EF 18- 55mm zoom. www. canon. co. uk
