The Canon EOS R6 is a full-frame mirrorless camera with a resolution of 20 megapixels that is designed for amateur videographers and photographers. It is positioned below the R5, similar to how the EOS 6Ds were placed below the 5D DSLRs, and it provides a well-rounded combination of functions for both landscape and portrait photography.
It is also one of the first enthusiast-level cameras that can capture both stills and video and utilize the capabilities of the most recent high-dynamic range displays. This makes it one of the first cameras of its kind. The fact that it frequently exceeds its temperature restrictions, however, brings its video capabilities down to a lower level.

The R6 utilizes a modified version of the 20-megapixel sensor that was initially introduced in the EOS-1D X III. Canon did not define the difference; however, there is clearly no mention of the R6 employing the pricey “16-point” anti-aliasing filter from the flagship camera, which is a plausible distinction (we’d anticipate the R6’s AA filter to be of the more standard type).
The R6 utilizes what Canon refers to as Dual Pixel AF II for its focusing system. In this system, each pixel is composed of a left-looking subpixel and a right-looking subpixel. The ability of the camera to do ‘phase detection’ focusing is dependent on the difference that exists between what each pixel half’sees.’ As a result of this, the whole sensor is capable of functioning as a depth-aware focus sensor, which contributes to the achievement of one hundred percent AF coverage and is advantageous for both still and video AF.
The R6’s video specifications aren’t quite as impressive as those of its more costly sister, but it more than holds its own in comparison to other products in its price range.
It’s the same as the 1D X III: essentially DCI capture with little over 3 percent shaved off both sides, producing a 1.07x crop. The UHD 4K output isn’t exactly full-width, but the difference is quite minimal. Due to the fact that it was demosaiced before being downscaled and was taken from a portion of the sensor measuring 5130 by 2886 pixels, this oversampling should result in a minor improvement in the level of detail.

The Canon EOS R6 is a mirrorless camera designed for enthusiasts that has many of the same capabilities as the Canon EOS-1D X III. Even though it only has 20 megapixels, this camera is capable of producing excellent images in a wide variety of challenging shooting situations. People who shoot video and stills together may find that the camera’s tendency to overheat if used before recording video reduces its attractiveness; nevertheless, if you can find a way to work around this constraint, the film produced by the camera is among the finest in its class. An exceptional camera for photographers, despite the fact that it is not quite the ideal hybrid model.
- High-quality images in Raw and JPEG formats respectively.
- Superb ergonomics
- Good dynamic range
- Decent resolution, despite pixel count
- System of powerful image stabilization that is performed in collaboration
- HEIF mode that is clever and ready for HDRTV
- A remarkable number of shots fired in rapid succession (12 and 20 fps, depending on mode)
- The autofocus is quite accurate and needs very little adjustment, particularly when dealing with human or animal images.
- Reasonable battery life
- Film with a high level of clarity and the ability to record in 10-bit HDR or Log
- A sensible partition between the settings for stills and videos, which enables swift switching
- Charging via USB, built into the camera (with high-current devices)
- Charger is sold separately and is included with the camera.
- The use of rolling shutter might diminish the quality of an otherwise stunning movie.
- Certain features, such as HDR PQ, are difficult to access.
- Noise reduction is implemented in a mandatory fashion to Raws.
- Any usage of the camera will reduce the amount of time available for video recording (making video shooting unpredictable)
- When trying to achieve the ideal reaction, the autofocus setting might become rather complicated.
