Cameras is a high turnover product

Historically, the big camera companies like Canon, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic, and others will often make new models of their cameras every couple of years. Often before or right after a new model is announced, you'll see an older model get reduced in price. Camera companies will also mark down some of their best-selling products on big shopping days like Prime Day so they can make an extra buck, all while saving you money.

That's likely part of the reason the EOS M6 Mark II (opens in new tab) is discounted for Prime Day! It's an amazing mid-range mirrorless camera — arguably one of Canon's best — and it's just about a year old now, meaning it's time to lower the price and boost the hype.
