The EOS M6 has been creating a global buzz since its announcement. Its launch party was held on the 2nd of March in Jakarta, Indonesia, which has a large mirrorless camera fan base. The event entitled “The launch of the Canon EOS M6”, displayed Canon’s largely-anticipated new mirrorless camera for the first time, with a roundup of its features and details.

Mr. Dai Kichiji, Senior Manager of Canon Singapore's ICP Marketing Division, spoke about the superior AF ability on the EOS M6: “In its compact body, the EOS M6 comes installed with the highly advanced AF system found on EOS professional range cameras. I would like all of you to experience the advanced AF system that have professional photographers reluctant to go back to their usual camera models after trying the EOS M6 once.”

In its small body, the EOS M6 uses Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which was also implemented on professional models such as the EOS-1D X Mark II and EOS 5D Mark IV and has already seen users of professional range cameras giving excellent reviews about its performance. To quote Mr. Kichiji, “You will have no limitations in your choice of pictures, movies or subjects.”

Ms. Merry Harun, the director of the Canon division in PT Datascrip, also answered questions from reporters, “With its high shooting performance, the EOS M6 is sure to satisfy a wide range of users. You can even use it for photographing moving subjects or fashion shows. It’s a perfect camera for bloggers.”

In the event, the EOS M6 also demonstrated its aesthetic versatility, with fashion models dressed in various styles each holding an EOS M6, suggesting its ability to complement anyone’s wardrobe.

Next, the discussion with EOS ambassador Dean Fujioka took place. The EOS M6 looked on point with Fujioka in a blue suit ensemble.  Fujioka, who counts Indonesia as one of his base platforms, spoke about his theories on photography, “When shooting, I think that expressing the stories and emotions you feel behind the form, is very important whenever you take pictures.”


He shared a collage he had prepared from pictures he took when he travelled around the world.

Fujioka told the audience that looking at those pictures of himself in his early days taken in various parts of the world brings back vivid memories of those times.

An actor, musician and movie producer whose activities span across various ASEAN countries including Indonesia, Fujioka rated the importance of the camera as a very useful tool to have.

“Having a camera is extremely useful in creative work, such as when writing songs, making movies or videos, while frequently moving between countries. Pictures help you recall the impression you had at a particular moment. Therefore, I think cameras like these are very efficient tools to have for creative people.”

Fujioka’s go-to camera is the EOS M5. The EOS M6, which he tried for the first time at this event, seems to have left a different impression on him. He stated his fondness for its retro exterior, and said that it enables you to take moving subjects smoothly.

Fujioka mentioned that he will have more work based in Indonesia for 2017. It looks like you may just be able to catch a glimpse of Dean Fujioka out and about in Jakarta this year.

Dean Fujioka has fun taking a we-fie with guests of the event using the EOS M6.


In addition to the EOS M6, the EOS M10 and EOS M5 were also displayed for guests to try and feel the difference between each model.
