Canon offers speedy Dual Pixel CMOS AF and large APS-C senor for daily shooting
Powered by Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the compact and light Canon EOS M6 boasts of high sensitivity 24.2 megapixel, APS-C sensor and latest image processor to deliver high on precision for polished


SINGAPORE, 15 February 2017 Canon today announced the launch of the EOS M6, the latest addition to its mirrorless range of cameras designed as modern all-rounder reflecting the best balance of convenient portability and easy functionality.  Equipped with advanced technologies which are adopted from the professional EOS range cameras, the compact-size EOS M6 weighs approximately 390 grams (including the body, battery and card) and achieves high speed and a sharply precise AF that is capable of capturing fast moving subjects in still or videos. Available in sophisticated black graphite and vintage silver and black combination, the EOS M6 packs a punch with the new APS-C sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor to deliver high image clarity with low noise levels.

“The compact-sized EOS M6 excels in having a good balance of imaging power and convenience, making it a desirable camera of choice for users who relish the versatility of mirrorless photography. With Canon’s dual pixel CMOS AF technology, significant enhancements in AF speed and precision tracking enables users to capture superb quality pictures and videos without the associated bulk.” said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore. “Coupled with a comprehensive line-up of interchangeable lenses, users will now have more avenues to flex their creative muscles and develop their artistic flair.”

Rapid and precise AF performance with Dual Pixel CMOS AF
Powered by Dual Pixel CMOS AF with approximately 24.2 million phase-difference sensors, AF is possible on approximately an 80% x 80% area of the focal plane’s entire surface. This enables fast and accurate tracking when shooting stills and video, even when the subject is positioned at the edges of the frame. The touch AF further facilitates efficiency when conducting focus adjustments especially during macro and portrait shoots. Additionally, minute adjustments of the AF frame can also be done effortlessly through the controller wheel in the magnified view for accurate and precise focus.

The improved noise reduction performance as enabled by the DIGIC 7 image processor expands the normal ISO speed range from 100 to 25600. This notable improvement ensures sharp and crisp image quality even when shooting in low-light conditions.

Movie shooting
Full HD of 60p is supported, allowing the EOS M6 to capture smooth and beautiful footage. With the combination of Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology and STM lens, the EOS M6 allow users to achieve fast and accurate tracking during video shooting to achieve cinematographic effects and noise reduction movies.

The EOS M6 also features Combination IS with in-camera 5-axis image stabilization through a compatible lens. Combination IS leverages optical IS and in-camera digital IS to help create seamless videos. Additionally, the DIGIC 7 image processor makes the 5-axis image stabilization possible even with lenses that do not contain IS due to the independent in-camera image stabilization that reduces camera shake during video shoots.

Intuitive user experience with improved ergonomics
With a 3.0” touch panel LCD screen that tilts 180 degrees upwards and 45 degrees downwards, users have the flexibility of taking photos from different angles without comprising on the image quality. The quick dial controls also simplify adjustments even while on foot as settings can be switched around quickly without needing to toggle back to the menu screen. This provides a significant improvement to the levels of comfort and freedom for users, especially when shooting in manual mode.

With a screen size of 0.39” and approximately 2.36 million dots OLED panel, the optional electronic viewfinder (EVF-DC2) is comparably smaller and lighter than the conventional EVFs.  For the user, the EVF reflects a highly accurate image representation of what is seen by the camera sensor without interference from glare. The EOS M6 is compatible with selected Canon camera models such as PowerShot G1 X Mark II, PowerShot G3 X, EOS M3 and EOS M3.

Seamless with Bluetooth Low Energy technology
With Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, users can transfer images and videos from the camera to the smart devices and upload them onto the Canon Image Gateway, social media platforms and cloud storage. And by using the Canon Camera Connect app, users have real-time control of camera settings such as shutter speed, focus selection and self-timer and more.

In addition, EOS M6 features Bluetooth Low Energy which maintains constant connection to a compatible smart device at a low power consumption. With this constant connection, users can view images, start remote capture from the camera, even when the camera is in Auto Power Off mode. Smart devices with Bluetooth can wake the camera up, and switch to Wi-fi for browsing and viewing images or perform remote capture (with live view). Users can also use Bluetooth to perform basic remote capture (no live view), control image playback and slide show when the camera is connected to a TV or projector via smart devices.

Easy switch of lenses for changing your perspectives
The EOS M6 is available in 2 kit options: EF-M18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS kit and EF-M15-45mm F3.5-6.3 IS kit. For existing EOS DSLR users, the Mount Adapter (sold separately) allows full compatibility with over 70 EF/EF-S lenses. This offers users a wider range of creative options and shooting perspectives all without compromising on image quality and capabilities.
