Canon announced several new additions to its lineup: The Canon EOS R6 Mark II full-frame camera, RF135mm f/1.8L IS USM and Speedlite EL-5.
The EOS R6 Mark II redefines Canon’s “6” series of cameras and is more than just a replacement for the well-liked EOS R6. It elevates it to become a stills and video powerhouse by adding a slew of professional video production features to revamped fundamental performance and revved-up still photography features.
The EOS R6 Mark II records 6K RAW externally through HDMI for video that maintains great quality even after extensive post-processing, while Full HD proxy data is simultaneously recorded to one of the two SD card slots for convenient editing. In addition to Canon Log 3 and HDR PQ video, it is internally capable of producing high-definition 4K 60p video oversampled from 6K, as well as High Frame Rate video up to Full HD 180p. Unlimited continuous recording in 4K 30p is now feasible because of enhanced heat management.
Faster Speed, Better Bokeh, and Up to 8 Stops of Image Stabilization with the RF135mm f/1.8L IS USM
The first professional 135mm prime lens from Canon for the RF mount is the only 135mm lens on the market right now with built-in optical image stabilization that offers up to 5.5 stops of compensation. It can achieve coordinated control IS image stabilization up to 8 stops when used with a compatible camera. It weighs only 935g despite this new addition, making it lighter than some lenses with comparable characteristics but no image stabilization.
Function-packed, high-performance Speedlite EL-5 professional speedlite for cameras from the EOS R series
The Speedlite EL-5 provides faster and more reliable communication with the camera by utilizing the new 15-pin Multi-Function Shoe on some of the most recent EOS R cameras, which enhances overall performance and dependability. It enables further features like wireless control using a smartphone.
The EOS R6 Mark II will be available from Canon authorized dealers from 18 November 2022.
