Canon is preparing to release its latest mirrorless cameras in late August, but they won't be full-frame bodies – instead we'll be seeing a pair of new APS-C cameras in the shape of the Canon EOS M5 II and Canon EOS M6 II.

Both cameras will feature uncropped 4K video and high frame-rates for recording slow-motion video. In addition, the Canon EOS M5 II will possess an improved electronic viewfinder.
