Liam: 00:00 Canon EOS, 90 d full specifications and promotional video appears to have been leaked and the same as the case with the Canon Eos m six mark two all of this on episode 33 of the Liam Photography podcast.
Liam: 00:34 you’re listening to the Liam Photography podcast. I’m your host Liam Douglas. And this is episode 33. So I wanted to start off this episode by saying I apologize to my listeners that I wasn’t able to do an episode last week. I was in northeastern Pennsylvania on vacation. I was the first vacation I’ve had in probably seven or eight years, I mean, extended vacation, um, which was nice. And I got a chance to see my mom and my aunt and uncle, uh, spent some time with my son. I picked him up on the way up there and he went with me. And, um, I got to spend some time with my mom’s mom, my grandma gift card on my mom’s side of the family. She’s, uh, developing severe dementia, so it’s getting really rough. She frequently doesn’t remember anybody in the family. So, but other times she can remember some things in the past and sit and talk with you for a couple of hours about them that yeah, I just needed some time off to recharge my batteries, but I am back this week and I don’t want to depress my listeners at all. So, uh, I wanted to jump in and I know people are probably gonna pooh-poohed the fact that, uh, the last couple of weeks I’ve been talking quite a bit about these new canon cameras that are rumored to be getting ready to drop. And the main reason why I am is yes, of course I’m a canon shooter myself, but I’m also intrigued especially about the Eos 90 d um, because if you remember back in late 2018 and one of the first episodes of this show, I predicted that Canon was gonna replace the add
Liam: 02:08 and the 70 mark two that they were going to discontinue the 70 line and that more than likely they were going to combine those two cameras, upgrade the features a bit, the image sensor and stuff like that. And release it as the 90 d um, so that they’re,
Liam: 02:25 uh, sports shooters that use HPSC or crop body would still have an awesome camera to use. A lot of my friends, like I said before, had the 70 and then later the 70 mark too. They absolutely love it. It’s a great camera for shooting sports. Um, my friend, uh, Jeff Harmon from the master of photography podcast, he shoots a lot of high school sports with the 70 mark two and he’s a phenomenal photographer even though he considers himself only a hobbyists, don’t want to blow smoke up your up your chimney because he’s actually extremely talented and he’s also really good with post-processing. He’s created some really beautiful, uh, composite images of the students that he’s photographed using his skills in Photoshop, I believe. At least I believe it’s Photoshop using cause he’s doing some really amazing stuff with that and he’s an all around fantastic guy.
Liam: 03:16 And I, I’ve talked to him numerous times on Facebook and he’s been hoping that Canon was going to come out with a replacement for the 70 mark two. And when I told him that I had heard from my sources that they were discontinuing the 70 line, he was a bit bummed out. And I said, well, I said, but as I predicted on my show, my sources are telling me that the 70 and the add are going to get combined into a new camera that they’re going to call the 90 d and it’s going to have the best of both bodies, you know, as well as an image censure upgrade and some other stuff. So that, that made them perk up a bit and he’s been waiting to see if it was actually gonna happen. And that’s why I’ve been talking about it so much the last couple of weeks because it’s currently one of the biggest things that’s going on.
Liam: 03:58 And the camera rolled, as I said, there’s a lot of aps sport shooters out there that had been looking for a new body and hoping that Canon was going to deliver one and now it looks like they definitely are. So anyways, let’s get onto the first item on this week. Um, so this is from our August 21st. Um, it looks like somebody leaked in Official Canon Eos 90 d promotional video, a because it has cannons, watermarks all over it and it even says Eos 90 d in their standard fonts and everything. I mean, somebody could’ve faked and I guess, but it looks pretty legitimate. Um, these are the specifications from the video. Uh, the 90 d is rumored to have a 32.5 megapixel aps c sensor, uh, 45 AAF points that are all cross type, the digit eight processor, 10 frames per second shooting, which will make uh, folks like my friend Jeff Harmon happy because it will be great for sports as supposed to have four k video at 30 p and 25 p full HD at 120 p and 100 B, which of course is 10 80, uh, optical view of view finder with face detection, 100% view.
Liam: 05:14 Find your coverage 20 or 220 k. Dot. RGB Plus, I are metering a very angle touchscreen dust and water resistance. And it is also going to have an optional battery grip that BG 14. So if all of these specs are true, it sounds fantastic. It sounds like it’s going to be one heck of a great HPSC sports camera. Uh, I love the fact that it’s got a nice higher resolution sensor. I’m not sure off the top of my head with the sensor is on the 70. I want to say it’s like 20 or maybe 24, somewhere around there. And I think it’s about the same for the ATD. Um, so it’s getting a nice bump up, you know, after they combine the two cameras into a single body and you know, which gave us the 90 day, um, if it is going to have a 32.5 megapixel sensor, that’s great.
Liam: 06:08 That’s a bump up. It’s going to have the newer digital [inaudible] processor, which a lot of people love. It’s great, uh, processing, uh, and doing its work. Especially when you want to shoot, uh, sports, you know, where there’s, where you’re doing a lot of continuous 10 frames per second shooting. The better the processor inside the camera is, the better your performance with the camera will be. So all of that is fantastic. Now the battery grip is great. I know another friend of mine, Jared Polin from Frodo Boto has complained nonstop ever since Nikon announced the Z six and z seven and then release them that they did not offer a real battery grip for those cameras, but they instead offered was a battery pack add on thing that I guess lets you use I think two batteries in the camera at once, but it gives you no additional functionality.
Liam: 07:00 You don’t get the additional shutter button, you don’t get any of the extra control buttons that photographers like to have with a standard battery grip. Especially because a lot of photographers, you know, they buy the battery grip and they shoot mostly portraits. So they’ve constantly got the camera turned to portrait a orientation and it’s nice to still have your shutter and your other important control buttons at the top of the camera. So if you have a battery grip, like a Austin battery grips that can and makes for their cameras and icon is also made for theirs in the past. But for some reason they decided not to make one for the z bodies. Uh, you would still have all of your functional controls that you use most frequently, even when you had your camera turn to the portrait orientation instead of landscape and just makes life easier for photographers.
Liam: 07:48 And like I said, I know Jareds been pissing and Moan and never since the disease six and seven were announced because Nikon decided not to create a battery grip for either of those bodies. And that really pissed him off once. I don’t blame him. He does a lot of portrait work. Um, but Gannon has always, they, uh, they generally always release battery grips for their bodies and they do a great job with the battery grips. They’re very nice. They’re comfortable to use. The functionality is great. I’ve had some people say that, oh, you need to stick with the Canon or Nikon battery grips. Don’t buy third party ones. You know, the, you can’t rely on blah, blah, this blah, blah, blah. Uh, to be honest though, I tend to disagree and I’ll tell you why. To be honest with all of the camera. Canon cameras I’ve owned over the years, I’ve only ever had two actual cannon battery grips.
Liam: 08:38 A number of years ago I bought a Canon one, uh, Canon five d classic from a gentleman that I met on Craig’s list and he had the canon battery grip with it. So, you know, I got the whole thing as a package deal. And right now I have the Canon Eos, our mural is full frame camera and I did buy the optional battery grip for that because of my real estate photography. Um, I can go through a single battery fairly quickly in a day of shooting, you know, cause I frequently shoot hundreds of not thousands of photos per day. And um, so having the extra battery and the battery grip is great. Plus I like the feel of it with the battery grip better because I have, you know, considerably larger hands and a lot of people do. So I liked the additional beefiness of having the battery grip.
Liam: 09:26 Now I also love that the 90 [inaudible] is rumored to be dust and water resistant. I’m sure the level of deluxe Dustin water resistance isn’t on par with their pro bodies. You know, like the one dx mark two or the five d mark for the Ios are. But I can’t say that for sure. I do lots of fat for those that want to have it, that it does have four k video at 30 and 25 p and that it has a full HD at one 20 and 100 which I believe one 20 is generally used for your slow motion video. So last you make a lot of people happy. And I love the fact that it has 100% viewfinder coverage. I never understood, and I know they do it for specific reasons to reduce costs, blah, blah, blah, Blah that get you to buy it and upgraded camera, Yada Yada Yada.
Liam: 10:14 I’ve always personally thought it was idiotic to not just give customers a hundred percent viewfinder coverage and all camera bodies. Maybe that’s just me. I don’t know. I to me it would just make more sense. Um, but you know, the camera manufacturers are going to do what they’re going to do. So anyways, the specs sound fantastic. Now for the second part of this story, I want to go to another article where Canon has officially announced all of the specs for the 90 d and this happened today after the video was leaks. So this came out on August 22nd and here it is, the Ios 90 d is a powerful, fully equipped interchangeable lens camera providing you with everything you need at your fingertips to advance your photography as well as your video skills. Eos 90 he shoots a fast 10 frames per second continuous shooting with full auto focus tracking paired with the three engine very angle LCD touchscreen.
Liam: 11:11 The IOS 90 d allows you to get creative and photograph your subject from any angle. The camera also comes equipped with a 32.5 megapixel aps cc moss sensor and the ability to shoot four K at 30 frames a second and Taney ADP full HD video to 120 frame movie rate. The image sensor type is aps c c Moss of course, effective pixels, approximately 32.5 total pixels, approximately 34.4 the aspect ratio is three to two. Sensor cleaning is the EOS integrated cleaning system as always, color, filter type is primary color. Image processor is the digit eight, uh, Lens, Mount e,F and efs of course, focal length equivalent to 1.6. The focal length of the Lens. That’s only if you’re using ef lenses. If you using efs, then there’s no crop factor to those lenses because they’re specifically made for the crop body. Uh, cameras. The focusing method is dual pixel, c Moss, a AV which will make a lot of people happy.
Liam: 12:18 The AAF system and points 45 cross type AAF points. The eight f working range is ab minus three to 18 at 23 degrees centigrade and ISO 100 a also has spot one point a abs zone and a large zone. Um, so that sounds great. The AAF modes, fast phase priority. Afai focus, one shot AI Servo as well as movie Servo. AAF, continuous, a f I detection, which I am really surprised cause I didn’t think they could do either detection in a DSLR, but maybe they figured out a way to do it. I could be wrong, but I thought I’d always heard from a lot of folks that I detect auto focus was only possible in mirrorless cameras, but I gotta be wrong on that. So they’ll start sending me hate mail. All right, so a horizontal approximately the AAF areas, approximately 88% vertical. It’s 100%. The AIF lock locked when shutter button is pressed halfway.
Liam: 13:23 They a f assist beam intermittent firing, a builtin flash or admitted by optical dedicated speed, light AAF, micro adjustment. Adjust all lenses by same amount. Adjust by Lens. Um, manual focus is selected on the lens itself. Of course, uh, exposure control. It has a viewfinder shooting approximately 220,000 Pixel RGB plus I are metering sensor 216 zones at 18 by 12 TTL. Full aperture metering, live view shooting and movie recording 384 zone metering with image sensor Ab is one to 20 optical viewfinder Eby minus two to 20 live view. The metering range is EBS zero to 20 when movie recording auto in one shot. A F mode will evaluate a metering exposure as locked. One focuses achieved the AEE locked manual by a lock button and p t v Ab and manual mode plus or minus five VB in one third or one half stomp increments that the using the viewfinder, a plus or minus three Evie and one third or one half stop increments and live view or movie mode.
Liam: 14:40 The AEB is plus or minus three Eby one-third. It will one half stop increments. Otto is a 100 to 12,800 men and hundred a (220) 500-0600 maximum in one stop increments. The ISO sensitivity manual 100 to 25,601 third stop increments expandable to 51,200 equivalent minimum limit may change depending on the Lens. Now for the shutter or vertical travel. Mechanical focal plane shutter electronically controlled at all speeds. A creative zone, one to 16,000 a one one one 16 thousands and 30 seconds for ball mode. Basic zone one eight thousandths of a second and one second. Available range varies by shooting mode. White balance, the type of white balance, Ottawa balance with the image sensor, auto white balance, ambience, priority white priority, daylight shade, cloudy Tungsten light, white fluorescent light flash, custom color temperature setting, white balance compensation, a blue slash amber plus or minus nine Magenta and green plus or minus nine custom white balance is possible.
Liam: 15:59 Yes, you can configure one and it can be registered into the camera. White balance bracketing plus or minus three levels and single level increments. If you find her type is of course a pen of prison because it is a DSLR. Coverage is approximately a hundred percent vertical. Horizontal magnification is approximately 0.95 times. I point approximately 22 millimeter from ips to Lens Center diopter correction minus three to plus one and a and dash one diopter. The focus in the screen is fixed mirror, quick return half mirror. I’m just looking through the rest of the specs. I don’t want to bore you with all of them. I’ve actually gone through quite a few of them already, but there’s a lot, lot more here. And of course what I’ll do is, uh, in the show notes for this episode, I’ll share a link to this article from the Canon rumors.com website. But yeah, I mean there’s tons of specs here, so it looks like everything that they were able to previously pull as far as specs from the League to video on the 21st did pretty much come true and the official announcement on the 22nd.
Liam: 17:06 So again, this should make a lot of shooters happy, especially sports shooters, whether you’re a hobbyist or you happen to be approached. Some pros do still use crowd buddies even though I don’t personally. Um, and PR, I think it’s primarily because they can use the full frame lenses and get more reach with them with the 1.6 crop factor. Uh, but anyways, a lot of people should be excited about this. I’ll have to reach out to my buddy Jeff Harmon from the master of photography podcast and see if he’s planning on picking up one of these 90 ds to, to replace his current 70 mark two. I think it’d probably be a good idea for him and I, I’m not going to swear to it, but I think he’ll probably pull the trigger on that. It’s definitely a fantastic camera. Okay, so in the next segment, I want to talk the leaked promotional video for the Canon Eos m six mark two.
Liam: 17:53 Now, for those of you that may not know the Ios six, uh, Ios m six mark two rather is one of cannons, uh, mirrorless aps camera bodies. And this is the second one in the m six line. The video, again, like the one for the 90 d does look like an official video from Canon. It’s got their watermarks all over it. But of course, and this day and age, it could be counterfeit. You never know. I will have a link to the video in the show notes or you can check it out yourself. This is what we can gather from the late video for the Eos and six mark to specifications from the video. 32.5 Megapixel, a PSC sensor, same thing that’s in the 90 d digit eight processor. Now this camera is supposedly going to be capable of 14 frames per second. Rob Burst to 30 frames per second up to ISO 26,500.
Liam: 18:51 I detect auto-focus if capable down to minus five ab four k video, but it doesn’t say the frame rate and full 10 80 p HD at 120 frames per second for slow motion and it will also have a removable OLED viewfinder. Now these specs sound pretty cool. It sounds like, um, if the specs are true that this could actually be a great little a sports camera, especially with the 14 frames per second. Um, if it is accurate, that would make it faster than the 90 d. Um, and then of course being at some mirrorless body, it would be a lighter body than the 90 days. So that would be a, when there is, well we will have to uh, check and see if that, um, does pan out as being true. Uh, and hopefully it is, that would be fantastic. It would give our hobbyist photographers and uh, semi pro or hobbyist sports shooters, two camera bodies to choose from the 90 d at 10 frames per second and the Eos m six mark, two at 14 frames a second, both of them with the same sensor and both of them with a digit eight processor.
Liam: 20:02 So that would be really cool. Now I wanna switch gears for this section to the actual full specifications as announced by cannon. And it says here, the Eos m six mark two is a stylish, compact and lightweight mirrorless camera that doesn’t compromise on speed or quality, whether you’re shooting stills or movies. The Eos m six mark two features the option to add on an electronic view finder so that you can shoot the way that feels most comfortable to you. Enjoy a high image quality with the cameras. 32.5 megapixel APSC sensor. Ensure you never missed the shot when the maximum continuous shooting speed of approximately 14 frames per second at a maximum raw burst mode of approximately 30 frames per second. So it looks like the rumors from the video that was leaked a couple of days ago are true. The image sensor type is the PSC see moss 32.5 megapixels total pixels approximately 25.8, but I think that might be a typo cause usually total pixels in the higher number a image quality, you have l m s one s two ra and c Ra.
Liam: 21:11 The censor cleaning is the EOS integrated cleaning system. The color filter type is primary color image processor digit eight. Lens Mount is the f Dash m e F and efs compatible via mount adapter, the a f two eos m mount adapter. Um, so you would be able to use your other lenses on a disc well, um, with a native adapter from Canon that would, uh, ensure that you could use those other types of lenses without having any compatibility or performance issues. Okay. So the focusing type is dual pixel cmos as system maximum focusing area approximate relative to capture image horizontal 88% vertical 100% and uh, let’s see here. The maximum are, I’m sorry, the number of focusing area available for automatic selection, face tracking, AAF Max 143 point okay. Selectable positions for AAF point Max 54805000400 81 zones max number of ar points. Same with number of AAF area available Max of 143 focusing brightness range ab minus eight to our mat minus five to 18.
Liam: 22:25 Uh, AAF modes, one shot, AAF Servo af touch and drag. AFI Detection, AAF, one shot and Servo face and tracking a f lock lock when shutter button is pressed halfway with or via the a lock button. A ethicist beam via led assist beam and with F and efs lenses, select via auto focus manual focus switch on the [inaudible] with manual focus on the EFM lenses. Select the via dedicated manual focus button. Other customizable buttons you can toggle AAF and MF modes. Manual focus, peaking, available, available level high, low color, red, yellow and blue. Pretty much the same thing that’s in the eos are in RP for the manual focus peaking, which does come in extremely handy, especially if you have manual only lenses that you shoot with like I do for my real estate photography. I use the amazing Rogan on our f 14 millimeter f 2.8 Lens, which is a great lens for real estate photography because it allows me to get nice wide shots.
Liam: 23:34 And the fact that the EOCR has both the focus guides and the focus peaking, um, I can’t use the focus guides cause they only work with lenses that have electronics inside them. And of course my roping out, there’s not, but the focus peaking works perfectly fine and allows me to get amazing shots without worrying about being out of focus. Now for exposure control metering modes, 384 zoned 24 by 16 metering with image sensor center weighted average metering supported l valuate of metering supported still images. E V minus two, two 20 a metering range for movie is Eby zero to 20 a Alok stills auto manual and movie mode. Manual exposure compensation plus or minus three Eby in one third stop increments or half stopping commits AEB plus or minus three Evie and one third stop increments or half stop increments. And for stills you have creative zone.
Liam: 24:34 Um, ISO is automatic. Uh, you have auto ISO and you have range of ISO 100 to 25,600 manually sat 100 to 25,600 high equivalent to ISO 51,200 basic zone ISO auto various by shooting mode. ISO sensitivity for movies, shooting with auto exposure. ISO Auto 102 12,800 expanded in creative zone shooting with manual exposure. ISO Auto 100 to 12,800 manually set ISO 100 to 12,800 shutter type electronically controlled fogo place shutter, uh, with 32 one four thousands of a second one third stop increments. Bald total shutter speed range available range varies by shooting mode. White balance type, auto white balance with the image sensor. You have auto white balance, daylight shade, cloudy Tungsten Light, white fluorescent, light flash, custom color temperature, white balance compensation settings, one blue amber plus your mind minus nine levels, Magenta, green plus or minus nine levels. Custom white mode. A white balance is possible, however, not available for monochrome creative filter or bra burst mode images.
Liam: 25:52 A viewfinder type is an optional electronic viewfinder EVF dash DC one or EVF dash DC two when the EVF Dash d c to customizable and toggle via info button. Uh, one is live view image with exposure info. Two is live view image. Basic Info three is live view image with full information. And I’m not going to go into absolutely all of the specs for this camera because there’s a lot more here and I don’t want to bore my listeners to death. Uh, again, I’ll include the links to this article from cannon rumors.com so that you can browse through the entire list of specifications for the Eos m six mark two and then you can decide if this is the camera for you. Now, like I said, both of these camera announcements are pretty exciting. Um, in my opinion, either one of these APSC bodies would be fantastic for hobbyists or amateur sports shooters.
Liam: 26:49 You’ve got the Eos 90 d of course, which is what’s known as a prosumer camera. It’s in between their pro level cameras and there consumer level cameras and kind of gives you the best of the both of both worlds with the capabilities that they brought into it from the ATD as well as the capabilities they brought into it from the 70 mark two you got 10 frames a second, you got 32.5 megapixel sensor with the digit eight processor and you have all of those same hardware specifications on the Eos m six mark two. However, the mark two is capable of 14 frames a second and raw [inaudible] to 30 frames a second. So if you’re looking to really have your, the most frames per second and the Eos m six mark two might be your better bet. Now there’s no mention in these, uh, official SPEC release articles on the pricing for these camera bodies.
Liam: 27:43 I’m sure Canon will be announcing that sometime soon. Now that they have are released the official specifications, um, usually they’ll do an official, uh, live announcement or video announcement or whatever you wanna call it. Um, and let you know when you’ll be able to preorder these cameras and what the cost will be. But in my opinion, my humble opinion, either one of these cameras will be fantastic for shooting sports. If you’re a somebody who likes to shoot sports and wildlife, but you don’t have the deep enough pockets to buy, you know, something like a one dx mark too. Um, this, these would definitely be a better option and definitely a lot more cost effective, less, uh, less harmful to your piggy bank, so to speak. And I honestly believe any one, I’m just going to either one. I’m just going to do a fantastic job.
Liam: 28:29 The spectrum, amazing. Uh, between the two cameras. Uh, most of the major specs are 100% identical, so you’re going to get the same level of Boston performance with either camera. But as I mentioned earlier, um, me personally, if I was trying to decide between these two, I would probably go with the [inaudible] mark two just because you get the extra four frames, a second standard and rob burst, you get up to 30 frames a second, which is three times with the Eos. A 90 d is capable of, but that’s something you’re going to have to decide for yourself. Now the other advantage of the Eos m six mark two is it’s going to be a considerably lighter camera than the 90 d because the 90 d is of course still a DSLR. So it’s got to mirror the pen of prison, all that extra stuff that the m six mark two does not, which will allow the m six mark to, uh, to be considerably lighter and smaller.
Liam: 29:20 Now the one thing I didn’t see mentioned here, and I honestly don’t know because I’m not an expert on Canon’s a m series. Uh, Merrill-Lynch crop bodies is whether or not they offer or they will offer a battery grip for the Eos m six mark two. Uh, I’m assuming they might, but I could be wrong because like I said, I’m not an expert on cannons HPSC Marilyn bodies. Uh, but if you could get a battery group for that, yes, it’s going to add a little bit of weight to the camera, but I guarantee you it’s still be a much lighter package even with a battery grip than the 90 d would be probably with or without the battery grip just because of the difference in weight between mirrorless and full frame. And the fact that the m series cameras tend to be fairly small to begin with.
Liam: 30:04 Uh, something similar in size to the the SL line or maybe they’re a little bit smaller than the Sli and I’m referring to the sl one, two and threes, uh, which are fantastic APC bodies for people to have smaller hands. They’re great for those, those kinds of people to do their photography and, and have a camera that’s more comfortable. All right, I am going to go ahead and wrap up this episode.
