Canon EOS M6 – preview – Street smart camera

They delight us always!
They are at the tipping point to do so again. I would call the Canon EOS M6 a “Street-smart” camera. And that’s what it does the best, capture images at the drop of a hat. When you are in the street and the world just ‘happens’ around you, moments don’t give you time to take out and setup your DSLR. This mirrorless camera captures high res clicks fast, and how!
This camera uses the Canon EF-M lenses introduced way back in 2012. They have been designed for use with mirror-less cameras. EF-M lenses, Coupled with Dual Pixel CMOS AF deliver amazingly fast autofocus in stills and movies. For the uninitiated, Dual Pixel CMOS AF is sensor-based, phase detection Auto Focus (AF) technology developed by Canon. It enables ‘pull-focus’ effect and simultaneously allows sharp focus on subject walking closed to camera while retaining blurred background. The camera has an ISO range between 100 and 25600.
The EOS M6 has a 24.2 Mega Pixel APS-C CMOS sensor. The Advanced Photo System type-C (APS-C) is approximately equivalent in size to the Advanced Photo System based on size 25.1×16.7 mm with an aspect ratio of 3:2. M6 delivers a max resolution of 6000 x 4000 pixels. That’s like DSLR quality delivered with a mirrorless camera.
The camera is equipped to capture Full HD movies and has 5-axis image stabilization for videos.
The feature I personally look forward to, in a mirror-less camera is the tilting touch screen display. Canon has not let fans down in this department either. M6 has a 3-inch 2.36 million-dot tilting touch-screen LCD. The screen tilts to a selfie clicker’s delight.
In terms of connectivity, no stone is left unturned with WiFi, NFC and Bluetooth capabilities. The camera accommodates SD/SDHC/SDXC cards for memory storage. It has a Rangefinder style body with dimensions 112 x 68 x 45 mm. All this and it weighs only 343 grams. Speaking of weight, the camera comes with LP-E17 Battery Pack. That’s a 1040 mAh rated 8.4V DC Lithium-ion battery.
Being light and handy, it reminds you of time of the slim personal digital cameras.
Accessories include EVF-DC2, a detachable Electronic Viewfinder, EH30-CJ body jacket and EM-E2 leather strap.
