Five years after their first mirrorless M-series camera, the sixth generation of the Canon M has arrived — the EOS M6. Boasting similar internal specifications to its sister model, the EOS M5, the EOS M6 features a 24Mp APS-C sensor, Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus, Canon’s latest Digic 7 processing engine, and 1080/60p video.
The EOS M5 is the latest addition to Canon’s expanding range of mirrorless models, and is the most enthusiast-oriented to date. It features a 24MP APS-C-format CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel AF across 80% of the frame, first seen on the EOS 70D. Enabling focus tracking during movie capture as well as improved subject acquisition in stills during Live View, this sensor-based phase detection technology is being rolled out across Canon’s lineup, including in the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.
Announced worldwide in November 2016, with an intriguingly belated announcement in the US at CES in January, the mid-level D5600 is the latest addition to the range. While the new model features a similar DX-format 24-MP CMOS sensor and 3.2-inch fully-articulated LCD in a relatively compact body to that of its predecessor, it adds the company’s SnapBridge technologies —both Bluetooth and WiFi with NFC for image transfer, some touchscreen LCD enhancements, and a built-in time-lapse movie recording option.
Canon’s iconic EOS 5D series of full-frame DSLRs have had wide appeal with both pro and enthusiast photographers, blending great image quality and good features in a more affordable mid-range body design. Boasting a significant number of upgrades over its predecessor, including increased resolution, an updated autofocus system, Dual Pixel RAW capture, improved metering and 4K-video capture, the latest Mark IV looks like a mouth-watering prospect for the still photographer.
As the current flagship model in the range of Sony’s APS-C format mirrorless cameras, the Sony A6300 is fitted with a newly-developed 24-Mpix APS-C CMOS sensor and BIONZ XTM processor. With a native ISO range up to 25,600 and continuous shooting at up to 11 fps, along with 4K video, the A6300 offers a wide range of capabilities in a small package. Read on to find out how well this model’s new sensor performs.
With an all-new 24.2Mpix APS CMOS sensor, a 45-point all cross-type viewfinder for stills, and a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system for live view or when recording video, the Canon EOS 80D is the latest model in the maker’s double-digit series. Read on to find out how well the sensor in the Canon EOS 80D performs.
