Finally, we have a Canon compact camera that shoots 4K video while using the full readout of its sensor! Actually, this applies to both new releases – the brand-new EOS 90D DSLR camera and its mirrorless sibling, the EOS M6 Mark II.
Both offerings sport a brand new 32.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor and are packed with some enticing features and specs such as uncropped 4K UHD video at up to 30fps alongside Full HD up to 120p. Besides the very same APS-C sensor and identical video capabilities, the newcomers also share the same DIGIC 8 processor as well as the proprietary Dual Pixel AF system.
Other than that, the Canon EOS 90D replaces the popular EOS 80D while featuring the same body along with identical features such as the 3″ 1.04m-dot vari-angle touchscreen LCD, monochrome status display on the top right-hand side, optical viewfinder, and the built-in flash. Unlike its predecessor, however, the new DSLR comes with a new eight-way rear joystick for navigating menus and controlling camera settings.
Additionally, the Canon 90D features Canon’s 5481-point Dual Pixel CMOS AF for video along with Eye-detect AF. The ISO range on the camera tops at 25600 for stills and 12800 when shooting video. Other noteworthy features include 45-point all cross-type AF system, 220,000pixel AE metering sensor, EOS iTR AF, Electronic Shutter Function, up to 10fps of continuous shooting, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities and more. The Canon EOS 90D DSLR camera is now available for pre-order selling for $1,199.

For all mirrorless shooters, the new EOS M6 Mark II comes with several improvements over its predecessor the original EOS M6. The Mark II model can shoot continuously at 14 fps with AF/AE tracking and has a Raw Burst Mode of 30 fps using the electronic shutter – a shutter capable of operating at 1/16,000-second.
Just like the EOS 90D, the M6 Mark II boasts Dual Pixel CMOS AF system with 5,481 selectable points and Eye AF. Besides the uncropped 4K UHD at 30p or Full HD up to 120p, 32.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor and Digic 8 processor, the brand new mirrorless camera also provides clean HDMI output and a microphone jack.
Unfortunately, the unit doesn’t come with an EVF, but you can attach the optional shoe-mounted EVF-DC2 auxiliary electronic viewfinder that can be purchased separately or as a part of certain lens kits.
