News of the lat­est pho­tog­ra­phy gear, ex­cit­ing gad­gets and must- have ac­ces­sories to launch in the last month

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
