Canon M6 overview

  • 1Description

A well-rounded mirrorless camera for both stills and video use, the silver EOS M6 from Canon offers apt imaging qualities with a refined, functional physical design. Making use of a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, both high-resolution stills and Full HD 1080p/60 video can be recorded, while the DIGIC 7 image processor affords a wide expanded sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600, along with quick continuous shooting up to 9 fps. The sensor's design also facilitates Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which uses phase-detection autofocus for quick, accurate, and smooth performance to suit both stills and video use. Additionally, Combination IS 5-axis image stabilization also helps to realize steady, shake-free recording by minimizing the appearance of camera shake.

Alongside the imaging attributes, the EOS M6 also incorporates a large 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD for intuitive control, and the screen's design tilts to enable easier shooting from high and low working angles. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC is available for quick and convenient pairing with a smartphone or tablet for wireless image sharing, and Bluetooth is also featured for image sharing to and remote camera control from a mobile device.

24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 7 Image Processor
Both a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 7 image processor are used to deliver high sensitivity and fast camera performance to suit both stills and video applications. A flexible ISO 100-25600 range suits working in a variety of lighting conditions, and the processing capabilities minimize noise for notable clarity. The processor also contributes to a fast 7 fps continuous shooting rate, which can be quickened to 9 fps with AF lock, for photographing fast-moving subjects. Full HD 1080p video recording is also supported at up to a 60 fps frame rate. Additionally, the processor affords a fast camera startup time and short interval times between each frame for a more intuitive and efficient shooting process.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot. When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery.
Combination IS
Combination IS uses the built-in 5-axis digital image stabilization in conjunction with lens-based image stabilization systems to effectively minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. This benefits recording while walking or moving, and can also be used in conjunction with lenses featuring optical IS for more effective overall stabilization.
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
  • Large 3.0" touchscreen LCD provides an intuitive method for controlling focusing points, navigating menus, and reviewing imagery. This screen also features a tilting design (180° upward, 45° downward) to better enable working from high and low angles.
  • Compatible with optional external EVF-DC2 for eye-level monitoring.
  • Five function dials can be used for intuitive settings adjustments, and each can be customized to adjust specific functions for more personalized control.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows for easy wireless sharing of both photos and movies to a linked mobile device.
  • Bluetooth permits linking a smartphone or tablet for quick image sharing between devices as well as remote control capabilities.
  • The included LP-E17 lithium-ion battery offers approximately 295 shots per charge, or 425 shots when working in Eco mode.
  • Manual pop-up flash is available for additional illumination.
EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens
Included with the camera body is the EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, which covers wide-angle to telephoto perspectives with a 28.8-240mm equivalent focal length range. An optimized optical design maintains even illumination and sharpness throughout the zoom range while a maximum magnification ratio of 0.31x benefits working with close-up subjects. An Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake and works in conjunction with the camera's Digital IS for more effective shake reduction.

Canon M6 reviews

EOS M6 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 18-150mm Lens (Silver) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I very much enjoy this camera. I was very surprised and pleased with the features and performance of this camera. I like how fast it powers up and is ready to shoot. The quality of the images it takes in a variety of shooting situations surprised and pleased me. The 18-150 zoom lens is great for the shooting that I do of scenes and animals on my walks around the local lake. Still learning the many ways it can be setup and used. The movable view screen allows many options for different angles of view. The optional Electric View finder makes it easier to get well focused images.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally Canon mirrorless is a viable option. For the last 7 years I used a Canon 5D mark II. Photo wise that camera still takes as good a photo as probably anything on the market for the most part. But it was, I believe, the first Canon SLR to do video and with the low res screen and lack of good AF in video mode it was not usable for what I wanted. When the M5 came out I was excited that Canon was putting real effort into their mirrorless cameras now. I liked the M5 but I rarely use a view finder, even on my 5D2 I would use Liveview most of the time. I also wanted a camera where the screen flipped up, not down like the M5 does. When the M6 was announced I was very excited. I looked at M1 and M3s before but for the most part they got terrible reviews and seemed overpriced. But now finally Canon makes a respectable mirrorless. I've used the camera for about a week. I sold my 5D2 and received my M6 in the mail the next day. Photo wise this takes a pretty great photo. It may be slightly worse than my Full Frame 5D2 was but sometimes I'm also amazed at the details of the photos. Grain control is pretty good, it can shoot a usable 3200 iso. I liken my 5D2 to a V8 engine. Big sensor but not a lot of bells and whistles. The M6 is more like a turbo 4 cylinder. It really makes up for the smaller sensor with great autofocus, processor, wifi, nice screen that tilts, a lot of bells and whistles. I wear size large gloves and getting used to the M6 has been a little hard. It's kind of too small in a way. I wish they made a battery grip just to give it a little more bulk to grab on to. But weight wise it's awesome to not carry around a brick anymore. The controls take some getting used to. I felt like on an SLR I was able to change the settings very fast. The M6 employs a lot of rotating dials instead of buttons so it feels kind of odd at first. I got the 18-150mm lens with my M6. Quite the range. I do a lot of shooting from my car and having that extra reach all in one lens is awesome. You sacrifice a little on the low end but it's not that bad. Distortion from this lens is a little fishy down low but is fine at longer lengths. Having a tilt screen with a level is awesome. I've taken photos out of my sunroof by tilting the screen 45 degrees and relying on the level to keep it straight. The autofocus at times may get confused by certain surfaces or smooth textures but when it locks on it is perfect. In video mode it occasionally drifts in and out of focus but nothing unreasonable. I find the REC button placement to be pretty bad but I reprogrammed the M-Fn button near the shutter button to be the REC button and that works a lot better. I don't shoot a ton of photos at one time, I'm not shooting sports or events or anything. I do mainly street photography. I shot all day, maybe 50 photos, and the battery never went lower than 2/3. Supposedly it will shoot 300 photos on one battery. If I could get an hour of video out of one battery I would say that is reasonable but I have not shot that much video yet. So buy at least one other battery to start with and go from there. Straight out of the box I feel like this camera shoots a bit too much contrast, shadows are very dark. You can go into the menu and customize your picture style. I adjusted it to be more neutral, you can always add more contrast in Photoshop later. The first consumer mirrorless that I know of was the Olympus EP1. When those came out I bought one right away. I liked the idea of mirrorless and the small size but the technology was not there yet. It had bad autofocus and was very slow all around. I sold that and just stuck with my SLR until this M6 came out. I am very pleased with this purchase and I don't regret at all selling my SLR to switch to this. I know probably 6 other people who jumped ship to mirrorless of various brands and not a single person has any regrets. Unless you shoot sports where you need to fire off 30 frames a second then you can probably get by with a mirrorless camera these days. Having something small I can carry around has really reignited my desire to take photos. The big shortcoming of this camera that most people find though is the video. It only does 1080 60fps in a world where 4k is becoming more common. GoPros and most any drone will do 4k these days. So you would think a real camera would do it. I've heard the Sonys that do 4k can overheat though. So maybe it's tough on a small camera like this, I don't know. Maybe Canon doesn't want to cannibalize sales from their more expensive cameras. The 80D, which this is basically a mini version of, also does not do 4k. When I edit 4k on my computer it slows to a crawl. So personally I'm not really mad about 4k. If I get 2 years out of this camera and the next generation is even better and does 4k that is fine by me. I don't feel like it is a necessity just yet. Overall with making the jump from SLR to mirrorless I have no regrets. Either the M6, or presumably the M5 if you want an electronic viewfinder, are both great cameras, especially if you travel a lot. I strongly recommend the M6, I am very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this little camera! I got this camera to take on trips, not wanting to lug around my 5D Mk III anymore. And it's just a wonderful second camera to have around the studio, I can use it with my strobes, which I love, because the lightness of the camera in the studio lends itself to a different kind of shooting. I also love the detachable electronic viewfinder, because there are times when I want to use it, but it's not necessary all the time, so it makes a lighter, sleeker camera. The 18-150 lens is pretty good. I had tried the 18-55 on a different camera which I returned (M100) and didn't think that lens was very sharp, but the 18-150 lens seems to rival the sharpness of my expensive EF lenses, and it feels more substantial than the 18-55, which I thought was kind of cheesy. I like the extra zoom capability of this lens too. And what a great option to be able to use my EF lenses on this camera, with the adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, light but still powerful camera to go. Nice compact and light but still powerful camera. My G13 was about to finish its cycle of life (what a great camera from Canon) so I was looking after mirrorless camera with good zoom lens and flip screen like my G13 had. Unfortunately, nobody is doing now camera with screen you can turn around 180 degrees! I found EOS M6 the closest one to G13 but the mobility of the screen flip is well beyond G13 of course. So, bit a disappointment as I need to flip screen often when shooting with the camera in my work. I got mine with 18-150mm zoom lens. First impression ? it is a tiny small monster, lens is so powerful and the camera itself is almost kind of miniature. It is definitively not a gear to be used by somebody with big hands! I found control on the camera a bit tightly spaced but touch screen makes everything much easier, you can access all functions on the screen easily, orientation on the screen is very straightforward and easy. WiFi function is great, transfer of the images to your cell phone is a piece of cake. What I don??t understand is why Canon had to use that special terminal if you need to transfer images to your PC/Mac via USB cable. They use some mini port I never saw before instead a normal USB mini port. So the best way is to take card off and use the card reader on your computer or external card reader. Will try to get that strange cable. I have the camera already 3 weeks but still learning new functions, it is really a quiet complex device offering lot of functions if you learn to use them correctly. HDR function you can easily access with a mechanic dial on the top of the camera is a plus. Automatic bracketing and a fact you can decide the range of f-stops is a sweet add and extremely useful for complicated scenes. There is NO macro function on the camera, I have no idea why, G13 had fabulous macro. So bought a special macro lens for this camera Canon Macro Lens EF-M 28mm but I can??t recommend you to do that as its DOF is very poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera for travel Bought this camera with the 18-150mm lens for travel and took it on a short trip last weekend. The pics are crisp and I couldn't be happier. I have a 6D and love it but wanted something smaller to travel with and this seems to fit the bill. I couldn't be happier with the pics I got from it. I will say I have not used the flash but I got some great night shots without it up to 6400ISO.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Canon EOS M6 Review Overall, this is a great little camera. I bought it for street shooting when my SLR is just too big and obtrusive. I also do a lot of biking and hiking, and having something a bit smaller and lighter is nice when I don't want to lug my Nikon SLR. I really wanted something with a larger sensor size (APS-C in this case) and interchangeable lenses. After a lot of research, the EOS M6 moved to the top of my list. It's not perfect, however. For perfection, you need a lot more money. One thing that I would really like is a built-in viewfinder. It might make the camera a little bigger, but I think it would be worth the tradeoff. The detachable electronic viewfinder is nice and sharp, but it feels like there wan't a lot of thought that went into integrating it with the overall camera packaging. It also partially obscures the tilting screen when it is flipped up, so if you want to switch between using it at waist level and eye level, it's difficult to take advantage of both. Not a deal breaker, though. I bought it with the available 18 to 150 mm zoom, and a 22 mm fixed lens. The 22 mm lens is the best bet if you want to do street shooting without the view finder. It's great operating it at waist level, it's quiet, and responds quickly, although it doesn't seem quite as fast as my SLR. Lastly, I seriously considered the Nikon 1 series because I'm a Nikon guy, but the sensor was just too small. For you Nikon fans out there, there will be a learning curve (not too steep) as you get used to Canon's menus and controls on the camera. Not a big deal, but worth mentioning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera!� Lightweight! Powerful! Great camera!� Lightweight! Powerful! I bought this camera as my second camera (5D MKIII is the first one).� However, it provides the flexibility that I need for any family activity.� Lightweight and powerful. With the Mount Adapter, I can mount any of the lenses that I already use with my 5D. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Package with Professional Capabilities This camera is best-in-class for its size. The only issue to consider with Canon's line of mirrorless cameras is the poor selection of native lenses. The EF-M adapter is mandatory for any extremely serious shooter for the time being. The few native Canon lenses that are available for this camera vary from excellent to superb. The 22mm lens may even suit some serious professional shooters looking for extremely light weight and low profile gear.
