The Canon EOS R6 is a versatile full-frame mirrorless camera that offers UHD 4K video capture, 12 fps continuous still shooting with a mechanical shutter, and 5-axis image stabilization. Key features include:

  • 20.1MP full-frame CMOS sensor; DIGIC X processor

  • 4K60p and Full HD 120p internal video capture

  • 12 fps continuous stills with a mechanical shutter

  • 5-axis image stabilization; dual-pixel autofocus

20.1MP Full-Frame Sensor and DIGIC X Processor. The Canon EOS R6’s revised 20.1MP full-frame CMOS sensor works in tandem with the DIGIC X processor to produce high-resolution stills and video with plenty of speed. You get up to 12 fps continuous shooting with a mechanical shutter or silent 20 fps with an electronic shutter. The native ISO range of 100-102400 can be expanded to 100-204800, making this camera great for working in a wide range of lighting conditions.

UHD 4K and Full HD 120 Capture. The EOS R6’s 20.1MP sensor makes internal UHD 4K RAW capture possible at up to 60 fps, in addition to Full HD recording at up to 120 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit with Canon Log and HDR-PQ. External HDMI output supports clean 4K output at up to 60 fps. Audio in and out are available through standard 3.5mm jacks for both microphones and headphones.

Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization. The built-in five-axis image-stabilization system compensates for eight 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.

Dual-Pixel CMOS Autofocus II. This camera incorporates a Dual-Pixel CMOS Autofocus II system, which is an update to the system previously seen in the 5D Mark IV. Its 1,053 manually selectable points cover 100% of the image frame to give you smooth, fast 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. 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.

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.

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 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.

Q & A

  • Can I use my Canon EF mount lenses on this camera?
    • No. 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.

  • Can I use my Canon EF-M mirrorless lenses on this camera?
    • Unfortunately not. Canon’s RF-mount system is in no way compatible with their EF-M crop-frame mirrorless lenses.
