From Canon UK:
 
United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Wednesday 25 September 2019 – Canon Europe announces the highly anticipated successor to the hugely popular EOS M100 - the Canon EOS M200. Upgrades to this mirrorless camera include the latest Canon DIGIC 8 processor, improved autofocus and the addition of 4K movie. Complete with a guided user interface, boundless creative functions and vertical movie shooting, it has never been easier to step up from a smartphone and start sharing stand-out images and video with the world.
 
Capture sharp and striking images effortlessly
 
Superior storytelling is made effortless with the Canon EOS M200. Its guided user interface is perfect for first-time camera users, with useful on-screen guidance as well as hints and tips on how to get the best results. The camera’s APS-C sized 24.1 megapixel sensor is larger than that of a typical smartphone, producing highly detailed images that look sharp and striking, even when cropped or enlarged for sharing on social media.
 
The camera features Dual Pixel CMOS AF - a Canon-developed technology that delivers professional-looking movies and images, by keeping moving subjects in sharp focus with a pleasing background blur – perfect for capturing pin-sharp memories at a party, festival or concert with low-light AF sensitivity down to EV-4. The addition of Eye Detection AF also makes capturing the natural expressions of friends and family simple, by automatically maintaining focus on a subject’s eyes.
 

The introduction of Canon’s latest processor, DIGIC 8, delivers new functionality as well as great quality. With a maximum ISO speed of 100-25600 (extending to ISO 51200 equivalent), DIGIC 8 guards against image blur and reduces image noise when shooting in darker locations, such as a bar or music venue.
 
DIGIC 8 also adds a new dimension to storytelling, powering 4K movie for the highest level of movie clarity. The Canon EOS M200 takes the storytelling potential one step further with a 4K time-lapse feature and the ability to take 4K stills from 4K movies, perfect for capturing memories in detail.
 
The LCD touchscreen on the Canon EOS M200 flips 180 degrees, helping elevate selfies beyond what is achievable with a smartphone. The camera’s Self Portrait mode also allows settings such as background blur and brightness to be easily adjusted in real time. A first on an EOS camera, the movie record button is displayed on the touchscreen when in Movie Mode, ideally positioned for easy operation when recording a vlog with the screen tilted 180 degrees. Movies can even be recorded and played back on mobile in a vertical orientation so they are optimised for sharing on social media after they are captured.
 
Unlock your creativity:
 
The Canon EOS M200 features an array of settings and tools empowering those stepping up from a smartphone to capture memories in artistic and imaginative ways. It includes Canon’s Creative Assist feature, a suite of effects, filters and colour adjustment tools to apply to photographs when composing an image or after it has been taken. It is also possible to add effects to the photos taken, just like a photo app, with a range of creative filters including Grainy black & white, Fish-eye and Soft Focus.
 
Compatibility with the affordable and creative range of EF-M lenses expands the potential of the Canon EOS M200 even further. A variety of image expressions are made possible with wide-angle, telephoto and macro lenses EF-M lenses and the entire EOS lens range can be accessed with an EF-EOS M Mount Adapter.
 
Share special moments anywhere, anytime
 
Once content has been captured, customised and is ready to be shared with the world, the Canon EOS M200 connects seamlessly with smart devices¹ via Bluetooth² and Wi-Fi using the free Canon Camera Connect app for iOS and Android. From here, images and videos can be downloaded, reviewed and shared manually. Images can also be automatically sent to a smart device as they are taken. As long as the camera is in Bluetooth range, a constant connection to a smart device can be maintained, even when the camera is switched off.
 
The Canon Camera Connect app also facilitates shooting remotely with a smartphone or tablet, perfect for capturing group shots or a hands-free selfie.
 
Stylish and compact for everyday use:
 
The Canon EOS M200 is a compact and lightweight camera that can be conveniently carried anywhere. Weighing just 299g (including battery and memory card), it is perfect for daily use as it takes up limited bag space. It is also sleek and stylish in appearance, available in black or white with a high-quality crosshatch leather pattern. The Canon EOS M200’s appearance can even be customised with a range of colourful face jackets to complement a variety of outfits.
 
Incredibly simple, simply incredible, the Canon EOS M200 will be available from Canon’s online store and official Canon retailers from October 2019.
 
Pricing and availability:
 
The Canon EOS M200 will be available from October 2019 with an RSP of £499.99 / €569.99.

From Sekonic:
 
Tokyo, Japan – Sekonic Corporation, Light Meter Sales Department, has announced that the new firmware for SPECTROMASTER C-800-U is available.
 
The C-800-U SPECTROMASTER is the industry-leading handheld spectrometer for cinematographers and photographers around the world. Sekonic strives to keep this meter on the cutting edge of technology and works with top lighting manufacturers, standards organizations, and organizations such as The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Science and Technology Council to keep the C-800-U the most relevant tool for cinematographers and photographers.
 
The newest firmware will update the TM-30 metric from TM-30-15 to TM-30-18, which Rf is identical with Rf of CIE 224:2017, international standard. This is a standard that many feel will replace CRI (Ra) as a more accurate way to measure the color fidelity (Rf) because TM-30 measures 99 colors chosen from more than 100,000 measured objects vs CRI's 8 colors. TM-30 also measures gamut (Rg) which helps the user better understand how saturated colors will look.
 
This recent firmware update also shows the CCT, LB and CC properties of a preset when chosen in the Tool Box under the Preset Selection menu.
 
C-800-U firmware update can be done by C-800-U Utility, downloadable from the Sekonic website.

With Lens-Shift Image Stabilization, Compact, Lightweight Bodies and Affordable Pricing, the Canon 8x20 IS and 10x20 IS Binoculars are the Triple-Threat Tools Necessary for all Viewing Endeavors
 
MELVILLE, NY, September 19, 2019 – What do birdwatching, hiking, camping and sports watching all have in common? They all need a trusted and high-quality set of binoculars to view and bask in the full experience. Continuing to elevate viewing through impressive optics, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced two new, lightweight entry-level Image-Stabilized Binoculars with an 8x20 IS and 10x20 IS. Specifically, the 8x20 IS binoculars are the world’s lightest binoculars with image stabilization. These new entry-level models also feature Lens Shift Image Stabilization (IS) technology, a technology that allows users to see an even sharper image by moving the IS lens to help correct shaking from handholding.
 
“One of the secrets to Canon’s success is the company’s dedication to its strong legacy of optical brilliance and imaging technologies that match the various needs of our customers for today and into the future,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “These new binoculars embody those same principles, enhancing the viewing experiences for our customers, while offering the familiarity and quality they trust in Canon optics.”
 
The new binocular models both feature Shift Image Stabilization, a feature frequently found in Canon digital cameras and camcorders. This technology incorporates a microcomputer and improved gyro performance that assists in canceling out the effects of user-shake or movement, resulting in an enhanced detailed view of objects. Reducing shake also lessens fatigue when viewing for long periods of time, making them comfortable to use at concerts and events. Canon is offering two models with different zoom powers (8x and 10x) which can handle various situations for a wide range of users.
 
Additional features in both models include:
 
  • Compact and Lightweight Binoculars with Image Stabilization
  • High-Magnification Ratio of 8x to 10x, respectively
  • High Efficiency Shift-System Image Stabilizer
  • Powered IS Mode
  • Field Flattener Lens
  • Super-Spectra Coating
  • Minimum focusing distance of up to 6.6 feet (2m)
  • Ergonomic design and comfortable grip
Pricing and Availability
 
Canon’s new 8x20 IS and 10x20 IS binocular models are scheduled to be available in early November 2019 for an estimated retail price of $499.99 and $549.99 respectively.

Solution will Enable Remote Operation of Canon’s Interchangeable Lens Cameras in Inaccessible Locations for Photographers
 
MELVILLE, NY, September 19, 2019 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that its parent company, Canon Inc., is developing a remote-control solution that will allow for operation of the company’s interchangeable-lens cameras. Remote operation of cameras has been growing in popularity among photo agencies and media outlets, as seen in today’s coverage of global sporting and news events. With that growth in mind, Canon is excited to develop a powerful solution that reflects years of testing and feedback from the organizations that will benefit the most from this device.
 
Canon Remote Control Pan Tilt System Video Console

The solution, currently under development, utilizes a system that enables the camera’s optical axis to be perpendicular to the device’s axis of revolution. This intuitive alignment will provide users with operation capabilities that feel similar to handheld or tripod shooting. The hardware and software solution allows a photographer to control multiple cameras at once, with the ability to control multiple remote-control or static remote systems from a single computer. Photographers will be able to operate each device to pan, tilt or rotate the camera and zoom the lens, and images can transmit via a network connection to a centralized location, a feature that will prove to be very useful for news outlets and agencies.
 
The new solution will allow for image capture from a variety of angles and viewpoints that might not have not been possible through conventional shooting methods. Moving forward, Canon’s goal is to create a system suited for a wide range of shooting needs that go beyond live sporting and news events, including e-commerce, product photography and more. By developing these types of innovative image-capture solutions, Canon is helping to provide new perspectives to the events that shape the world around us.

  • The Befree GT XPRO is the first Manfrotto travel tripod with built-in 90° column for enhanced creative versatility
  • Completes the Befree range of high-performance travel tripods
  • Lightweight, sturdy aluminum and carbon fiber versions in an impressive compact size
Upper Saddle River, NJ – September 10, 2019 - Manfrotto, world leader in the photography, imaging equipment and accessories industry, introduces the Befree GT XPRO Travel Tripod Kit. Dedicated to professional travel photographers who are always ready to set off on challenging creative adventures, this new addition to the Befree family enables photographers to unleash their creativity. By combining the sturdiness and reliability of the Befree GT series with the versatility of Manfrotto's celebrated 90° column, this compact professional tripod is unique to the market. The new Befree GT XPRO is a premium travel tripod kit, 100% engineered, designed and manufactured in Italy. This groundbreaking support solution, with its premium quality materials, precision machining and meticulous design, completes the Manfrotto Befree range, further solidifying its position as the premier reference for travel photography support solutions. The Befree GT XPRO comes in the same folded compact size as the successful Befree GT family, measuring only 16.9 inches. It is the first Manfrotto travel tripod developed for on-the-go photographers who shoot macro or low-angle shots and need more versatility. The new Befree GT XPRO travel tripod comes in both aluminum and carbon fiber versions and features intuitive and ergonomic design. This is the first travel tripod to feature both Manfrotto’s innovative 180° foldable legs and its iconic built-in 90° column mechanism, housed in the tripod’s top casting. The 90° column is stored out of the photographer’s way until it is time to create epic visuals with a challenging overhead macro shot or a low-to-the-ground capture. Photographers can keep their new Befree GT XPRO safe and travel-ready in the supplied Befree bag.
 
When it’s time to capture the decisive moment, setting up the Befree GT XPRO is a breeze. Simply twist the legs to securely set it up with the intuitive M-lock system and choose one of the three independent tripod’s ergonomic side-pull selectors. This lightweight tripod provides impeccable performance and impressive stability to assist photographers in capturing their best shots in a solution weighing only 3.88 pounds in carbon fiber or 4.41 pounds in aluminum. The Befree GT XPRO features the Manfrotto 496 Center Ball Head with independent panoramic and friction knobs for smooth movement and remarkable locking power to support an impressive 22.05 pounds of photography gear, including DSLRs or CSCs with zoom lenses. The included 200PL-PRO rubberized plate increases camera grip and makes it fully compatible with Manfrotto's RC2 and Arca-type head attachments.

When selecting a camera, one usually wants to compare it to the closest alternatives and to get started, I'll compare the Canon EOS M6 Mark II to the Canon EOS M6. That link along with the visual comparison reveal most of the differences.
 
Here is a summary:

  • 32.5 MP vs. 24.2 MP (6960 x 4640 px vs. 6000 x 4000 px)
  • Pixel Size of 3.20µm vs 3.72µm (DLA of f/5.2 vs. f/6.0
  • 14 fps continuous shooting with AF vs. 7 fps (9fps w/o AF), 54/23 JPG/RAW frames vs. 26/17
  • DIGIC 8 vs. DIGIC 7 processor
  • Eye AF
  • Maximum of 143/99 auto selected AF points (depending on the lens) vs. 49
  • Still image metering range of EV -2–20 vs. EV 1 - 20
  • Movie recording metering range of EV 0–20 vs. EV 2 - 20
  • 1/16000 sec. shutter speed with electronic shutter
  • Has C-RAW
  • 4k, Full HD at 119.88
  • Has Flicker Mode, adjusting shutter release timing to avoid flickering light issues
  • Does not have NFC
  • Has a Wireless menu tab
  • Supports UHS-II memory card standard vs. UHS-I
  • Slightly larger: 4.71 x 2.76 x 1.94" vs. 4.4 x 2.7 x 1.8" (119.6 x 70.0 x 49.2mm vs. 112.0 x 68.0 x 44.5mm)
  • Slightly lighter: 12.73 oz vs. 13.8 oz (361g vs. 390g)
  • Has a dedicated rear AF/MF switch and AF-ON button
  • Has a multi-function top dial and button vs. stacked dials

Numerous of those bullets could alone justify an upgrade from the M6 Mark I. For example, the twice-as-fast (with AF) continuous shooting frame rate. Eye AF is alone worth the price of the camera to those photographing people with any frequency. Do much video work? The 4k feature is noteworthy. Want higher resolution or more reach with the lenses you currently have? The increased sensor resolution is going to be noticeable.
 
As with most model upgrades, price remains the primary feature advantage of the previous camera version.
