Canon EOS 6D Mark II pricing and specifications leaked ahead of reported 29 June

Canon's EOS 6D Mark II which, as reported by Canon Rumours, will officially launch on 29 June, has seen its specifications, as well as pricing details, leaked ahead of its launch.

The news comes from a Japanese camera blog, Nokishita Camera, which has been reliable with its leaks. The new EOS 6D Mark II marks a step up from the original 6D in terms of features as well as pricing. The original 6D was launched back in September 2012. The website also leaked several high-resolution images of the new camera, which also clearly point towards a touch-screen foldable 3-inch screen — which could be a first for Canon.

Specifications suggest that the Mark II will house a 26.2 megapixel dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor, which is an improvement from the original's 20.2 MP sensor. The Mark II will also come with a huge 45 autofocus points, all of them being cross-type. Other features reported include 6.5 fps continuous shooting, a maximum ISO of 40,000 which is further expandable to 102,400. Full HD video recording with 5-axis electronic image is also supported.

On the video front, it reportedly supports Full HD (1920x1080) video recording with a 5-axis electronic image stabilisation, a new battery grip. But, unlike the 7D Mark II released in 2014, it will feature a single SD Card slot. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities will also be built in, which have become a standard feature on newer full-frame cameras.
