Welcome to the new- look Photography News . The mag has been going for over six years now and if you have never seen Photography News

The new and improved PN is the result of our recent reader survey, which is also why we’ve updated our website too to give you more of what you asked for. So, for example, the site features an issue library with every Photography News issue ever published, as well as more news than ever before and new types of content. To access PN online fully, all you have to do is register on photographynews.; and best of all, it’s free. We hope you enjoy the new look and thanks for your feedback and your support. Happy shooting and see you again next month.

Canon recently bolstered its premium Powershot compact range and its EOS R system is in its infancy, so everything is new there. Next year is Olympics year (in Tokyo, no less), so expect something very significant in the full-frame pro market as a result. This leaves only Canon’s APS-C DSLR and its EOS Mmirrorless ranges – we’ve seen little activity from both ranges recently… until now, that is!

Cue fanfare and say hello to the EOS 90D and the EOS M6 Mark II, replacing the EOS 80D and EOS M6 respectively. There have been some external developments and new features, but the big news is all about the inside. Both cameras sport a new Canon-made, Canon-designed APS-C sensor with an impressive 32.5 megapixels. Additionally, both models are equipped with Canon’s latest DIGIC 8 processor. Both cameras have very strong potential for wildlife or sports photographers. The EOS 90D shoots 10fps with autofocus tracking and 11fps in Live View, whereas the EOS M6 Mark II is capable of a 14fps continuous frame rate and impressive 30fps Raw burst, with both modes using autofocus tracking.

£1209.99 body only

The cameras’ new sensor also possesses strong low-light capabilities thanks to a high ISO of 100 to 25,600. Both can shoot 4K video, with Full HD available up to 120 fps. The EOS 90D is available now, £1209.99 body only. The EOS M6 Mark II comes out on 26 September; body is £869.99, £1119.99 with EF-M 15-45mm IS STM and EVF-DC2 finder.

In addition to the new cameras, Canon has released new glass. The RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM lenses expand Canon’s RF lens line-up for the EOS R system and they are available from September. Both of the new lenses are priced at £2329.99.
