Canon premium digital camera models for 2017
Two Canon EOS cameras launched at National Camera Day : In celebration of the innovation behind today’s generation of premium digital SLR cameras on National Camera Day, Canon USA is excited to announce the EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 D-SLR cameras. Both EOS cameras are designed for advanced-amateur and entry-level photographers, respectively. The Canon EOS 6D Mark II body is the best choice for budding photographers looking to take their creative photography skills to the next level by shooting with a full-frame camera to capture high-quality portraits and breathtaking landscapes, even in low-light environments. The Canon EOS Rebel SL2 is a small, light, and compact digital camera with high-performance features that allows users to get creative when capturing their family moments or travel experiences.|
Canon premium digital cameras
Stepping up from a smartphone shooter or point-and-shoot compact camera for photography can be intimidating. With the introduction of the new EOS Rebel SL2, a powerful, small, and lightweight digital SLR camera, Canon hopes to alleviate some of those concerns for first-time D-SLR users.
The Canon Rebel SL2 camera body features several other enhancements over its predecessor model, the Canon EOS Rebel SL1. This small yet powerful premium digital camera features the world’s fastest AF speed at 0.03 seconds, allowing for quick focusing on subjects in the frame.
When designing the new EOS Rebel SL2 camera, Canon took into consideration feedback from entry-level photographers who expressed interest in learning how to go beyond a camera’s program mode. The result was the creation of a convenient new user interface called Canon Feature Assistant.
With the EOS Rebel SL2 camera, users will be able to see on the camera’s Vari-angle touchscreen how switching modes on the mode dial or tweaking camera settings like aperture and exposure compensation can alter the image they are about to capture, thus guiding photographers on their way to capturing more compelling images, such as ones with a shallow depth-of-field or being able to give moving subjects a frozen or flowing look.
Canon EOS 6D Mark II review
"After just one day in Yellowstone National Park with the Canon 6D Mark II camera, it was clear that the body is greatly improved over its predecessor," said acclaimed nature photographer and Canon Explorer of Light Adam Jones. "Landscape and nature photographers will be very happy. The new and improved autofocus feature is way ahead of the previous generation and performed extremely well, even in very low-light situations."
Canon 2017 camera lineup
"It seems fitting that today, a day set aside to commemorate the invention of a tool that forever changed how we view the world, we introduce two new premium digital camera models to our 2017 lineup," said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon USA. "In an industry where choices are abundant, providing consumers with the photographic tools that match their developing skill levels as they continue to embrace their passion for digital photography is a long-standing goal of Canon and stands at the core of our research and development. The Canon EOS 6D Mark II and EOS Rebel SL2 digital SLR cameras are the result of Canon’s dedication to providing a wide range of camera choices for photographers of all skill levels, whether it’s someone taking their first picture or video with a D-SLR camera or those looking to make the jump to a Full-Frame sensor camera."
