Sony and Canon are going quite aggressive these days. Maybe the demand for cameras is increasing or the competition is getting fierce, they are launching cameras one after another. Maybe it has to be the rivalry as both of these camera manufacturers planned to announce their new products on the same date. While Sony announced its new A6600 and A6100, Canon released the EOS 90D DSLR camera and its mirrorless counterpart: the Canon EOS M6 Mark II. And, both these cameras are now available in Nepal via its official distributor — CANON Image Square.

Canon EOS 90D and Canon EOS M6 Mark II Overview:
At the press event, Canon executives told that these two devices are ‘basically twins’: twins in a sense that both of these cameras come with similar internals despite having different look and feel. That being said, both of these cameras come aboard with the same 32.5MP APS-C sensor. And it’s quite an upgrade over the EOS 80D and M6, which used to have a 24.2MP sensor.
For its size, the sensor has the largest resolution in any professional camera. Both of these cameras are powered with the latest Digic 8 processor to handle the image/video processing. But despite having a similar processor and sensor, the continuous shooting on the 90D can go up to 10 frames per second whereas, in the M6 Mark II, it hits 14 fps.
Even on the video front, these cameras have received quite an upgrade. These new cameras can record crop-less 4K videos at 30fps. That means the device uses the full width of the sensor while capturing the movies without any crop. And even while recording the 4K movies, you can use Dual Pixel AF because of which the autofocusing is expected to be fast and smooth.
Although 4K videos can be recorded at 30fps, there is no option to record them at 24fps. And that can be a bummer for some. The Canon EOS M6 Mark II also doesn’t have a headphone jack, which by the way, is present on the EOS 90D. Nonetheless, you get a mic jack on the camera and you can also get a tilt-up display on the M6 Mark II and an articulating one on the 90D display. And these features make the device quite handy for self-shooting and vlogging. Apart from the ability to record the 4K videos at 30fps, there are also options to record 1080p movies at 30, 60, and 120fps.
As for the connectivity, both of these cameras come with the in-built Wi-Fi and Bluetooth options on the wireless side. For wired connectivity, the Canon EOS 90D comes with the outdated MicroUSB port. But in the case of M6 Mark II, you get a rather modern USB-C port. Talking about the storage, you get single UHS-II SD card slot for both of these devices.
Despite having all these similarities between these two models, there is also a fair bit of differences. The Canon EOS 90D comes with an in-built optical viewfinder. However, the EOS M6 Mark II lacks any sort of viewfinder on its default state. However, the Canon EOS M6 Mark II features a hot-shoe on which an optional EVF-DC2 electronic viewfinder can be attached when needed. Adding to the list of differences, the 90D comes with a weather-sealed body and a joystick for moving the AF points.
