Unannounced Canon ‘6D Mark II’ DSLR Leaks Online (Updated)

When Canon initially announced their 6D, many were pleased with the company's decision as it offered some of the best features from the 5D lineup at a lower price without the unnecessary bells and whistles. Since then, a lot has happened in the world of photography and video.

Canon has been lagging far behind its primary rivals, Sony and Panasonic whom both offer mirrorless competitors with greater features and functionality at a lower cost.

Canon refreshed their high-end, full-frame lines in the past year with the 1DX Mark II and 5D Mark IV, so everyone has been patiently awaiting the launch of a 6D Mark II which just so happened to leak online as of this morning via the Japanese blog, Nokishita Camera.

Included in the leak is five images of the camera body along with some leaked technical specifications if real are not all that impressive by today's standards:

Rumored 6D Mark II technical specifications:

  • New 26.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor,
  • Dual-Pixel AF technology with 45-point cross-type
  • 6.5fps continuous shooting
  • 40,000 MAX ISO that is expandable up to 102,400
  • Full HD video with 5-axis electronic image stabilization
  • Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity with GPS
  • First fold out, articulating screen on a full frame DSLR

The specs are no doubt a step up from its predecessor yet in the world of bleeding edge technology coming from the mirrorless competition, that might not be enough.

From what we know so far, these specs still fall short of expectations in several areas unless the launch price is considerably cheaper than the $2100 from the last generation.

Let's see what Canon announces with the official unveiling that is said to be planned for later in the near future.
