Canon EOS M6 and EVF images leaked ahead of official announcement


Images of the upcoming Canon EOS M6 have leaked, revealing the lack of a built-in electronic viewfinder. Expected to be announced ahead of CP+ (a camera and photo imaging show) in Japan later this month, Canon’s EOS M6, slated to succeed the EOS M5 launched last year, lacks a built-in EVF unlike its predecessor which sported a 2.36 million-dot built-in EVF. The EOS M5 is presently available in stores across India with an EF-M 15-45mm IS STM kit lens for ₹81,995.

The leaked images, from Digicame-info, have also revealed images of a new EVF, likely to have been designed for the EOS M6. Nokishita, another website that regularly publishes information about upcoming cameras ahead of an official product announcement has published key specifications of the EOS M6 as well. According to the website, the Canon EOS M6 will sport a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with Canon’s DIGIC 7 image processing engine. We haven’t been able to confirm the authenticity of this.
