The M6 features a new 24mp APS-C CMOS sensor, a 3inch tilting touch-screen, FullHD video recording at 60p, plus built-in Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth. The M6 will be available in silver and black, or just black. The camera offers Improved speed over the M3, plus, 7-9fps continuous shooting with C-AF or fixed AF.
The M6 is introduced with a new EVF-DC2 electronic viewfinder (EVF), this is an OLED EVF, 2.36m dots, 0.39-type, and it is also backwards compatible, whilst being smaller, and lighter than the previous EVF.
