Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc. (CMPI) recently launched 6 new and amazing digital cameras that would surely delight anybody who wish to have top-of-the-line digital cameras to capture precious and memorable moments this Christmas season.
The new 20.2 megapixel Canon EOS 6D DSLR is the world’s lightest full-frame DSLR equipped with a Digic5+ image processor that performs up to three times faster than DIGIC 5. With the combined features, the EOS 6D can shoot extremely sharp photos at a continuous shooting speed of 4.5 frames per second.
The new DSLR features a new and improved autofocus system with 11 AF points including a high precision center cross type AF point which offers better focusing in any given low lighting conditions than any of the previous Canon EOS cameras.
The most interesting feature is the Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows the camera to quickly connect wirelessly to any Wi-Fi compatible devices to transfer photos to PCs, smartphones or tablets as well as print photos with PictBridge-enabled wireless printers.
And with the EOS Remote application, it allows the user to remotely operate and control the EOS 6D via smartphone or tablet. The suggested retail price for EOS 6D will be announced on December 2012.
Canon finally joined the mirrorless bandwagon with the new Canon EOS M. Canon’s first compact mirrorless interchangeable camera uses a non-reflex operating system, an 18.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, and DIGIC 5 image processor—all fitting inside a petite body—to produce detailed images with rich color gradation. It has ISO sensitivity of up to 12800 (expandable to 25600).
Its intuitive multi-touch 3.0-inch widescreen Clear View LCD II monitor displays a streamlined touch AF/AE (Auto-Focus / Auto-Exposure) scheme and allows a continuous shooting spree of up to 4.3 frames per second.
This camera also introduces two new EF-M lenses– the EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM standard zoom and the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM pancake lens. These two new EF-M lenses offer portability for easy handling and high performance. Both feature new Stepper Motor technology for exceptionally smooth AF performance. This camera can also accommodate the whole of Canon’s existing range of EF and EF-S lenses with the use of EF-M lens mount adapter.
The EOS M and its accessories are available in Canon authorized dealers in three kits: (1) with EF-M 22mm STM, EF-M 18-55mm STM, and Speedlite 90EX at P47,998, (2) with EF-M 22mm STM and EF mount adaptor at P40,998, and (3) with EF-M18-55mm STM at P35,998.
