For the everyday shooter with high demands, the Canon EOS R6 is a versatile tool to meet the photo and video requirements of a contemporary imaging workflow. This full-frame mirrorless camera revolves around a refined 20MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC X processor, which afford quick shooting up to 12 fps, apt 4K60 video recording, and wide-ranging sensitivity to ISO 102400. It also sports 5-axis in-body image stabilization to help steady shots when working in low-light conditions.

As a do-everything, highly versatile camera, the R6 also employs the sensor and processor for robust focusing performance. Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers quick, smooth, and intelligent focusing using 1053 selectable points that cover the entire field of view. This focusing system has also been updated to make use of Deep Learning technology for improved subject tracking as well as precise eye, face, and head-detection for both people and animals.

Complementing the imaging capabilities, the R6 sports a bright and detailed 0.5" 3.69m-dot electronic viewfinder, with a high 120 fps refresh rate, and a rear 3.0" 1.62m-dot touchscreen LCD with a vari-angle design to accommodate vlogging needs as well as benefit working from high and low angles. Additionally, dual SD UHS-II memory card slots offer flexible storage and there is of course Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for wireless sharing and remote camera control.

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 to ISO 204800, along with quick continuous shooting up to 12 fps with a mechanical shutter, or silent 20 fps with an electronic shutter, is ideal for working with moving subjects.

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, that are well-suited for portraiture applications.

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 and Wireless Connectivity

  • 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.
  • Dual SD UHS-II memory card slots are featured for flexible storage needs.
  • Both a 3.5mm headphone and a 3.5mm external microphone port are featured for improved audio monitoring and recording capabilities.
  • 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.
  • Durable, weather-sealed body design is built to handle tough working conditions and inclement weather.
  • 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.

Canon R6 Reviews

AMAZING VISUALS

By Jacob
Rated 5 out of 5

I upgraded from the Canon Rebel T7 so quite the upgrade, and I also upgraded for video, but I needed an affordable hybrid camera because my wife and I also shoot stills. This was an instrumental upgrade in our gear.

First Mirrorless

I have been shooting with DSLR'S for years. I was hesitant to go to a mirrorless camera. I have only used the R6 for a couple of jobs so far, but it seems to be a great camera for the price. Very light weight, fast FPS even in mechanical shutter mode and focus speed is great. There is a learning curve because of all the features included with this body. All in all, very satisfied with the initial results.

Fantastic camera, very versatile

What can I say... Other than I love this camera! I switched (back) from Sony to the R6 because of its processor, sensor, and many other features. I have shot sports, used the AF tracking, wildlife, astro, low light/night, street, you name it. It's a beautiful all around camera that I would recommend to anyone.

I was previously shooting with a M50 Mark II which I really enjoy. However after shooting for a couple of weeks with the R6 I have been blown away by the low light performance and the sharpness of my photos. I will travel with the M50 because of the size and portability but the R6 will be my primary camera.

Great Camera

I sat on the fence for a while about going mirrorless. A photography group convinced me to take the leap and I'm so glad I did. The AF advancements are amazing in this camera! I have a lot more to learn about it but I'm very excited.

Fantastic R6

I bought the Canon R6 as a backup camera. Decided to see how good it would be paired up with my RF 100-500 for wildlife. This camera is fantastic! The animal eye tracking is spot on and the detail it captures is unreal. This R6 is a 5 out of 5-star camera.

It's a game changer

After finally upgrading to a mirrorless camera and new lens. The clarity and detail in my pictures is what I have always dreamed of seeing . A recent job produced great shots along with my new Godox external flash and customers were really happy. I feel more confident on building up my clientele now that I have the right equipment to showcase my work as a photographer.
