The Canon EOS R6 Mark II is a full-frame prosumer mirrorless camera that offers UHD 4K 60 fps video capture, 12 fps continuous still shooting with a mechanical shutter, advanced autofocus, and 5-axis image stabilization. Key features include:
24.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor; DIGIC X processor
4K60p 10-bit internal video; external 6K60p ProRes RAW
12 fps continuous stills with a mechanical shutter
5-axis image stabilization; dual-pixel autofocus
What’s Changed? The Canon EOS R6 Mark II offers a few substantial improvements over its predecessor, the EOS R6. It has a 24.2MP full-frame sensor, which provides enough of an increase in resolution to put it in line with other popular enthusiast cameras. The Mark II does away with the original R6’s slight sensor-width crop when capturing UHD 4K/60p video so that you get oversampled UHD 4K/60p from the entire width of the sensor. The autofocus system has improved tracking in general and several new subject-tracking modes. A RAW Burst still-shooting mode groups all the photos from each burst under a single thumbnail image for easy reference, and there’s an optional pre-shooting feature that will start buffering frames when you press the shutter button halfway down. Finally, a moving-subject HDR feature captures additional dynamic range with next to no ghosting of moving subjects, but this mode only outputs JPEG files.
24.1MP Full-Frame Sensor and DIGIC X Processor. The EOS R6 II’s 24.1MP full-frame stacked CMOS sensor works in tandem with the DIGIC X processor to produce high-resolution stills and video with plenty of speed. Its back-illuminated design lets in plenty of light, giving you reduced noise, high clarity, and smooth color rendering when you’re shooting in low light. The native ISO range of 100-102,400 can be expanded to 100-204,800, making this camera suitable for working in a wide range of lighting conditions.
Fast, High-Quality Still Shooting. The Mark II supports up to 40 fps continuous shooting with a silent electronic shutter and 12 fps with a mechanical shutter with autofocus and autoexposure readings between each frame. A 30 fps RAW burst mode gives you the option of capturing frames up to a half-second before you press the shutter release, and includes all the shots from each burst under a single thumbnail designated by a special icon.
UHD 4K Video Capture. The EOS R6 II’s 24.1MP sensor lets you capture UHD 4K RAW video at up to 60 fps using the sensor’s full width, and lets you work with 10-bit sampling using Canon Log 3. You can get oversampled 4K video at 30 fps from a 6K recording area for greater sharpness, less noise, and reduced moiré. There’s 180p recording at up to Full HD resolution for slow-motion playback, and there’s a HDR-PQ recording option for in-camera HDR production and external recording via the micro-HDMI port, which outputs clean 6K at up to 60 fps. You can also use the micro-HDMI port with a compatible external recording to get ProRes RAW video up to 6K 60 fps using the full sensor width or 3.7K RAW video with a Super 35 crop. Finally, audio in and out are available through standard 3.5mm jacks for both microphones and headphones.
Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization. The in-body five-axis image-stabilization system compensates for up to seven stops of camera shake, making it great for shooting hand-held at lower shutter speeds. This camera’s image stabilization works in tandem with lens-based optical image stabilization on native RF lenses and adapted EF lenses to give you up to eight stops of compensation depending on the lens. Movie Digital IS uses optical and sensor-shift stabilization to keep your footage steady while you’re moving.
Dual-Pixel CMOS Autofocus II. This camera incorporates a Dual-Pixel CMOS Autofocus II system similar to the one seen in the EOS R3. Its 1,053 automatic autofocus points cover 100% of the image frame to give you smooth, fast, accurate focusing similar to what you’d find on a camcorder, while its use of Deep Learning tech gives you improved subject tracking and more precise eye, face, and head detection. There are subject-tracking modes designed to follow humans, animals, and vehicles, while a new Auto mode uses a combination of all the subject-tracking modes to automatically apply the best algorithm to the subject you’re shooting. Movie Servo AF mode lets you dictate tracking sensitivity, autofocus speed, and face-tracking priority, and video shooters can even use the rear touchscreen LCD to rack focus. If you’re shooting a subject that disappears from the frame, the new video-only Detect-Only mode instructs the camera to leave focus where the subject left off instead of trying to lock onto a new subject.
Body Design. The large OLED live viewfinder has a 3.69m-dot resolution, 0.76x magnification, and 120 fps refresh rate that make it great for easy eye-level composition. The 3.0-inch, 1.62m-dot rear touchscreen LCD monitor allows you to pull focus in video mode and make quick adjustments in the camera’s menu system, while its vari-angle design makes it great for vlogging and other front-facing recording applications, and for shooting at high and low angles. A tank-like build and weather sealing keep out the elements and dust.
Next-Gen Multi-Function Shoe. This camera’s next-gen Multi-Function Shoe is an update to the conventional hot shoe that adds a row of pins at the front to give you expanded accessory functionality and to power certain accessories that typically need separate batteries. You can use the Canon AD-E1 Multi-Function Shoe Adapter to use select legacy shoe-mounted accessories, such as the Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter – V2 and Canon Speedlite EL-1, with the shoe.
Built-In Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Integrated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi let you use Canon’s Camera Connect app to instantly transfer images to your mobile device so that you can easily share them on social media, in email, and to the cloud. You can also use it to shoot remotely.
User Flexibility. The R6 II records images/video to UHS-II SD memory cards (not included) for broad compatibility in a familiar format, while its two card slots give you flexibility to meet your storage needs. The camera is powered by the popular LP-E6NH rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

Since this is an entirely different physical mount, EF mount lenses won’t natively fit.
However, you can use the EF-EOS R Mount Adapter / Control Ring Mount Adapter available for rent separately to mount EF and EF-S lenses to RF-mount cameras.
Unfortunately not. Canon’s RF-mount system is in no way compatible with their EF-M crop-frame mirrorless lenses.
