EDITOR'S NOTE

This issue of Click magazine comes to you hot off the announcement of two more brand new EOS cameras at the end of June. These two new cameras bring the total for new EOS cameras in 2017 to 6! (with the inclusion of the EOS C200 announced at the end of May included). Six new cameras in the first half of the 30th anniversary of EOS is great news indeed for photographers from all genres.

The latest entry-;level addition is the EOS 200D, a super-compact , high specification replacement for the popular EOS 100D that has been on the market for a few years already. Connectivity is the main upgrade here with Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth as standard as well as Dual-Pixel Autofocus – a first for a camera in this price bracket. DAF is a trademarked technology unique to Canon that provides fast, accurate auto-focus in live-view and video modes on a DSLR and has proven to be a firm favourite in the video and vlogging sectors.

In the high end of the mid-range cameras – the long-awaited replacement to the EOS 6D has finally arrived in the Mark II version – also announced at the end of June. Detailed spec and features can be found further in this issue, but we are confident that all of the current EOS 6D users will be happy with the upgrades and potential first-time buyers of a full-frame DSLR will also be pleasantly surprised by this compact power-house. Canon listened very carefully to users requests and fulfilled as many features as possible when designing the Mark II. There are some quite subtle changes that I found quite appealing – most notably the addition of a video boss to the tripod mount on the bottom of the BG-E21 battery grip for the EOS 6D Mark II. It is a very small thing that will make a difference to videographers in particular as it avoids the possibility of camera shift while panning on a tripod. I love the flip-out LCD – great for high or low viewpoints – but particularly appealing for vloggers.

We will be showing the remarkable EOS C200 and the new EOS 6D Mark II to the public for the first time at the upcoming AV show Mediatech – held at the Dome in Northgate 19-21 July 201. This show is aimed at pro AV specialists, film makers and videographers and is well worth a visit if you're in those industries. Canon SA will have a stand for the very first time at Mediatech and we'd love to see you there.

Until next time – keep Clicking away!
