Canon R6 Overview

Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera for Photographers and Video Content Creators

Delivering incredible performance at speeds of up to 12 fps, the EOS R6 camera can capture the split-second details between a subject's movements. This is great for dynamic action photos such as athletes, animals or vehicles in motion. or silent 20 fps with an electronic shutter, is ideal for working with moving subjects.

20MP Full-Frame Sensor and DIGIC X Processor

Built around a revised 20MP full-frame CMOS sensor, the EOS R6 offers modest resolution to complement a more manageable workflow, especially for those working with the web and small print forms as their final output. This sensor is paired with a fine-tuned DIGIC X image processor, which enables impressive stills and video capabilities, along with sensitivity from ISO 100-102400, which can be expanded up to ISO 204800.

4K60 and Full HD 120 Video Recording

Beyond stills, the 20MP sensor also affords UHD 4K video recording at up to 60 fps, along with Full HD at 120 fps for slow-motion playback. Both formats can be recorded internally at 4:2:2 10-bit and both Canon Log and HDR-PQ are supported for greater control over color rendering, and to suit high dynamic range output. Additionally, Dual Pixel CMOS AF is supported for all recording settings and external recording, via the HDMI port, enables clean 4K output to an optional external recorded.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF II

An updated Dual Pixel CMOS AF II features 1053 selectable focusing points, which cover approximately 100% of the image frame for wide and even coverage. This focusing system 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.

Subject tracking has also been benefitted through the use of Deep Learning technology, which helps to gradually refine the focusing system's ability to quickly and accurately recognize both people and animal subjects. This technology also supports the more refined eye, face, and head detection functions, for both people and animals.

Sensor-Shift Image Stabilizer

A first for EOS cameras, the R6 incorporates five-axis sensor-shift image stabilization that compensates for up to an impressive eight stops of camera shake for truly effective compensation of camera shake to suit handheld shooting with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system also works in concert with lens-based optical image stabilization for both native RF lenses and adapted EF lenses.

Body Design

  • High-resolution 3.69m-dot 0.5" electronic viewfinder provides a bright and detailed means for eye-level viewing and the quick 120 fps refresh rate offers natural motion rendering for a more realistic viewfinder experience.
  • Rear 3.0" 1.62m-dot LCD touchscreen features a vari-angle design that benefits front-facing recording, such as for vlogging needs, as well as working from high and low shooting angles.
  • Refined body design incorporates four distinct control dials across the body for intuitive tactile control and a joystick controller is used on the back of the camera for fast and intuitive focus point selection and menu navigation.

Dual Storage Card Slots and Wireless Connectivity

  • Dual SD UHS-II memory card slots are featured for flexible storage needs.
  • 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi is available for fast file transferring to a mobile device and Bluetooth is present to provide constant device connection via the Canon Camera Connect app.
  • A 3.5mm headphone port and separate 3.5mm external microphone port are featured for improved audio monitoring and recording capabilities.

Impressive Durability

  • Comfortable and solid in the hand, the EOS R6's exterior is made of lightweight and rigid polycarbonate resin, while the internal structure is mainly made of magnesium alloy that enhances body durability while shielding the camera from electromagnetic radiation and heat. It also has a tempered front panel for internal rigidity
  • Durable, weather-sealed body design is built to handle tough working conditions and inclement weather. Sealing materials are used in critical areas like the buttons, terminal covers, the battery compartment and the card slot cover. Precise design and construction help to minimize accidental penetration of dust and moisture in the rest of the camera body.

Firmware Version 1.5.1, Released Feb 2022

  • Fixes an issue that in rare instances, may cause the camera to become inoperable when shooting in the Servo AF setting while operating the AF-ON button.

Canon R6 Reviews

Gamechanger

By Lenn
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-29

I was hesitant to make the switch from DSLR to Mirrorless, but this camera body has been a game changer. Takes a few shoots to get it set up the way you want it, but once you get it programmed for your style of shooting it's great. The EyeAF and tracking is incredible. The only thing I haven't liked is the wheel ISO. I would rather just have a dedicated ISO button on top of the camera, but Canon has a winner with the R6.

Fantastic for the Price

By Jimmy

Have had mine about a month and love it so far. Although sporting fewer MP's than its siblings, it still delivers excellent 4K images and has great dynamic range. Resolution is plenty unless you rely on heavy cropping in post. The overheating in video mode hasn't been an issue for me, likely more of an issue when shooting 4K60 for long periods of time, which you really only need in certain settings. I also like the ergonomics and the way it feels in the hands compared to many smaller, more angular mirrorless cameras, but that may be a personal preference. It's very user-friendly. For the price range, it's a great option.

20 megapixel full frame camera with all the bells and whistles of the R5. Excellent autofocus with great low light performance. Love this camera.

The R6 is taking me a bit to get used to, but already seeing some great photos from it. I typically like to shoot birds and critters... couldn't be happier with the sharpness of the eyes on everything with a face! I already had some EF lens (used with the 5D Mark III) and purchased the RF 800 to capture the birds. Wow. Love them both.

flash hot shoe became wobbly after a year of regular use

By pablo

Date: 2022-06-06

flash hot shoe got loose after a year of regular use, have been using a canon flash always, now the flash started to miss fire, apparently it is a common issue found in this model maybe a design flaw from canon, found many complains of the same issue on the internet. My mark III is still solid as rock, I feel so disappointed from this issue considering seriously moving to sony A 7IV. Looks a better value

Excellent autofocus

Moved from a 5d mark III and 1 week in, all I can say is that just the autofocus itself is a huge leap ahead. Learning to keep it always on drive mode. Can easily configure eye autofocus and get tact sharp pictures.

Great mirror-less replacement!

By Richard

replacing a Canon 5D Mark II- was uncertain as to whether to go with a Mark IV or move on to mirror less. I love the body- still getting used to functionality. The lens is OK as a starter lens but this body and the Canon Adaptor Ring will allow me to use my other EF lenses.
