Canon EOS M6 Price in US

A tiny mirrorless digital camera with an APS-C sensor and 24 megapixels, the Canon EOS M6 also features dual dial controls and a touch screen interface. It takes the internals of the EOS M5 camera, which has an electronic viewfinder (EVF), and places them in an upgraded version of the body of the M3 camera. The price for the body begins at $779. It is located in Canon’s M range between the M3 and the M5, and it may be purchased as a kit option with either the 15-45 or 18-150mm lenses for a price of $899 or $1,279, respectively.

As is customary for Canon, the company has a unique perspective on the market, which leaves the M6 as either a costly, better-built alternative to entry-level mirrorless competitors or as a mid-level/enthusiast model without a viewfinder. In either case, it appears to be on the expensive side. Its quality of construction and controls puts it in competition with retro-inspired cameras such as the Olympus PEN F, the 4K-capable Panasonic GX85/80, Sony’s value-tastic a6000, and Fujifilm’s X-E2s, which is getting on in years.

Comparing it to Canon’s own Rebel series adds another layer of intrigue to the discussion. The M6 is basically an EOS 77D; however, it lacks the weight and utility of an optical viewfinder and offers a more limited selection of lenses. The M6’s twin control dials and extremely comparable underlying circuitry give it the appearance of an EOS 77D. (unless you forfeit some of the size benefit and use an adapter). There is a difference of $120 in the published prices, or you can purchase an M6 kit for the price of a 77D body only.

Several years ago, I worked as an assistant for a fashion and editorial photographer who, before to the launch of the EOS M and EF adaptor, had placed a pre-order for both products. They were thrilled to have a second camera that was smaller than a point-and-shoot and had an APS-C sensor, taking up less room in their camera bag than a lens.

They envisioned a camera with autofocus capabilities, controls, and image quality comparable to that of a midrange APS-C DSLR, but with the portability and convenience advantages of a mirrorless system. After quickly attaching it to one of their already existing EF lenses, it was sent back to the manufacturer. Due to the delayed nature of the CDAF system, it was impossible for it to even come close to having a second body that could be relied on in an emergency.

Because the camera occupies a portion of the display’s bottom border, gaining access to the extremely important touch controls is either an excruciating or completely impossible process. The screen of the EOS M3 is equipped with a device that is spring loaded, and this mechanism pulls the screen upward those additional few millimeters so that it is clear of the top of the body. A record button is not displayed on the screen of the M6, so users will have to either reassign the M Fn button or search for the record button, which is located on the back of the device in a relatively flush location.

And although it is true that you can regulate exposure by tethering your phone to the EOS M6 over Wi-Fi and using that method, the built-in screen is preferred for rapid-fire photography since it is more intuitive.

In any case, it is possible for the camera to easily catch some acceptable footage when it is not pointing back at our imaginary content producer, but rather forward at the environment that is surrounding them. Now, this film isn’t exactly state of the art, especially considering the cost of it. Although it costs a little bit extra, the X-T20 is capable of recording in 4K resolution. Additionally, 4K is supported with the Panasonic GX85. Both the GX85 and the Fujifilm do not have phase detection autofocus (PDAF), therefore neither is as dependable at handling focus for the user.

Good

The EOS M6 is an excellent camera that is suitable for both experienced users of Canon products and novice filmmakers. The focusing performance continues to be quite impressive, and despite the fact that many of the EOS M6’s immediate competitors offer 4K video and some type of viewfinder, the EOS M6 is a very well-built camera that is capable of producing very high-quality photographs.

Pros
  • An M5 without an integrated electronic viewfinder that is more compact, lighter, and more affordable.
  • When compared to the M3, the new 24-megapixel sensor delivers a significantly better dynamic range.
  • A respectable high ISO performance for its category.
  • Accuracy in both color and tone throughout.
  • HTP and ALO are helpful in situations with great contrast.
  • The Fine Detail Picture Style gives you a great deal of control over the sharpness of your images.
  • In-camera HDR mode
  • Fast startup
  • Exceptionally quick autofocus for single shots.
  • Reduced delay when the camera is pre focused
  • Quick timings for a single shot during the cycle.
  • Even when shooting RAW files, the buffer depths are respectable, which is a significant improvement over the M3.
  • Good times for emptying the buffers.
  • LCD touchscreen measuring 3 inches in size that can tilt.
  • Compatible with Canon Speedlites and EF and EF-S lenses when using the appropriate adapter.
Cons
  • The dynamic range is still not as good as that of some of the camera's APS-C competitors.
  • Processing of JPEG images using the default settings might be improved, especially at higher ISOs.
  • Tungsten illumination makes both the auto and incandescent white balance settings appear overly warm.
  • Automatic white balance setting a little chilly during the day
  • Even a competent autofocus system might have difficulty focusing in low light when using slower lenses.
  • Seven frames per second may be taken at the most while maintaining autofocus.
  • There is a shortage of video features.
  • No 4K UHD video recording
  • No jack for headphones
  • Weak flash that only covers a relatively small area.
  • Lifespan of the battery that is below average (but improved over M3)
