Canon EOS R6 Camera body 

Faster than fast, in silence

Capture the perfect decisive moment, shooting 20 megapixel photos at up to 20 fps1 with a silent electronic shutter or 12fps with a mechanical shutter, both with tracking AF.

The ultimate content creation machine

Master your filmmaking with the EOS R6’s ground-breaking video capabilities. Capture superb footage at 4K/60p with 10-bit colour and comprehensive Eye/Face/Body/Animal detection autofocus.

 

The image quality your creativity deserves

Enjoy the perfect balance of resolution, dynamic range and low noise. A state-of-the-art 20.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC X processor allow new levels of low-light performance, with  maximum ISO 102,400 sensitivity and up to 8-stops of image stabilisation2.

 

Intelligent focusing for the ultimate sharpness

Capture fast action with confidence: the EOS R6’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system can focus in as little as 0.05s3. Up to 6072 selectable AF areas cover the frame, recognising and tracking faces and eyes in humans, cats, dogs and birds in both stills and movie modes.

A camera you can connect with

The EOS R6 links to your smart devices with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, so it’s easy to share photos with your on-line audience and upload to our image.canon cloud service. Try controlling the camera remotely for alternative viewpoints.

 

Powerful image stabilisation for new ways of shooting

The EOS R6 features a five-axis in-body Image Stabilizer (IBIS) that provides up to 8 stops of protection from camera shake even when shooting with lenses that do not have their own optical IS. The In-Body Image Stabilizer sensor provides roll, X-Y and pitch-yaw correction, so all EF and RF lenses benefit from this new 5-axis correction. However, when a compatible IS-equipped RF lens is fitted, the camera and lens stabilisation systems combine, compensating for pitch-yaw movement together and creating an intelligent image stabilisation system that delivers an incredible 8-stop advantage2.

 

 

New levels of realism from an electronic viewfinder

The EOS R6’s electronic viewfinder refreshes at up to 120 frames per second and features no fewer than 3.69 million dots. The result is a staggering realistic view of the world that will have you feeling totally immersed in the scene – as if there is nothing between you and your subject. Of course, this state-of-the-art EVF also previews factors such as white balance, depth of field and Picture Style, so you’ll always know what you are shooting. 

 

AF and subject tracking powered by deep-learning AI

The EOS ITR AF X AF system in the EOS R6 has been programmed using a deep-learning AI, originally developed for our ground-breaking EOS-1D X Mark III DSLR camera. In Face/Eye detection mode, the system recognises faces accurately, including those in profile when only one eye is visible. This ensures subjects are kept razor sharp, even when moving unpredictably and depth of field is shallow. And if a person turns away for a moment, their head or body continues to be tracked so that their face is sharp when they turn back towards the camera. 

Furthermore, the EOS R6’s deep-learning AI has been programmed with the ability to recognise and track cats, dogs and birds – focusing on either their bodies, faces or eyes. This makes photographing wildlife easier than ever before, especially subjects such as birds in flight.

This class-leading AF system can focus in as little as 0.05sec3 and in light levels as low as -6.5 EV4 giving you the confidence you need to capture superb results. 

 

More powerful battery

The EOS R6 is powered by a more powerful new LP-E6NH battery, which adds approximately 14 per cent more capacity than the older LP-E6N battery.

LP-E6NH batteries can be charged using the supplied battery charger or in-camera via the USB C 3.1 connection alongside Canon’s PD-E1 power adapter or a power source with power delivery (PD) capabilities. The BG-R10 battery grip is also available, which can accommodate two batteries at once for extended shooting times.

Older LP-E6 and LP-E6N batteries are compatible with the EOS R6, although the very fastest shooting rates and in-camera charging are not available when using the LP-E6. 

1Maximum continuous shooting rate (12fps, 20fps)

Electronic shutter up to approx. 20 fps with AF/AE tracking: Applies to some RF/EF lenses, when the aperture is fully open. See Canon’s official website for a list of compatible lenses. Burst shooting speed varies depending on the shutter speed, aperture setting, aperture condition during continuous shooting, subject conditions, brightness (especially in dim conditions), and type of lens. Mechanical shutter up to approx. 12 fps with AF/AE tracking: When using RF lenses and some EF lenses. See Canon’s official website for a list of compatible lenses. Burst shooting speed varies in up to 3 stages, depending on the battery type, remaining battery charge, number of batteries, lens in use, temperature, setting of the built-in Wi-Fi (On/Off), and whether or not you are using a battery grip and WFT unit, DC coupler or USB power adapter. In addition to the above factors, the maximum burst shooting speed may decrease due to shutter speed, aperture, flash usage, flicker reduction processing, subject conditions, brightness (especially in a dark place).

2Up to 8-Stops IS

8-stops based on the CIPA standard with RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM at a focal length of 105mm.

3The World’s fastest AF focusing speed of 0.05 sec 

Among interchangeable lens digital mirrorless cameras incorporating 35mm full frame equivalent image sensors with phase-difference detection AF on the image plane and contrast detection AF. EOS R6’s AF speed is the same as that of the EOS R, EOS RP and EOS R5. Available in the market as of 9/7/2020. (Based on Canon's Research). Calculated based on the resulting AF speed measured according to the CIPA guidelines. (Varies depending on the shooting conditions and the lenses used.) Internal measurement method.

"I am glad to say that I am pleased with my purchase of a Canon R6. It is an ideal camera for fast-moving events such as wedding photography, where you are trying to ensure your subject stays in focus even when they are on the move and I decided to splash out and purchase Canon's RF 70-200 F2.8 lens to accompany it which I am also really pleased with due to the great results I'm getting. I particularly liked the eye recognition focusing mode works well when you need to change which set of eyes you are following. I found I achieved the best results when looking through the electronic viewfinder and dragging my thumb over the top half of the touch-sensitive articulated screen to move the orange circle in the viewfinder to where I needed whenever I needed to change the point of focus. In addition, once the camera was locked on the new subject it kept them in focus, whenever they moved or even when you changed from the landscape position to a portrait shot. The only thing I noticed is that with all the electronic features such as image stabilisation in both the camera body and the lens, you do need to keep an eye on your battery levels and I would recommend buying at least another of canon's new higher-powered batteries. Whilst they aren't cheap I did find they lasted longer which can be vital if you are taking a lot of images and want to reduce the time spent on fitting in another battery. Whilst I know the Canon R5 offers many more pixels, this is at a much higher price and I am pleased with the results I have got from my R6."

"Purchased camera to supplement EOS 6D. Was sceptical about the claimed advantages of this camera over the mirror cameras. I shouldn't have been. Autofotus is great and Image stabilisation really does reduce the need for a tripod with compatible lenses. Highly recommended. "

"Love the R6 so far although there remains much to learn. l photograph wildlife, particularly birds, & my decision to upgrade to the R6 was influenced by the weight of my chunky old 7D II + long lens. l'll probably revert to the rugged 7D II on days with an iffy weather forecast."

"Ow my god! This is awesome! Was very unsure about going from dslr to mirrorless but what an eye opener. This is so easy to use! Find it easer to use manual than the other tv-av settings as you can see exactly whats going on in the view finder. Worth every penny."

"Fantastic camera as you would expect from a new Canon. The in body IS is worth buying the camera for alone. Lightweight, packed with features. This is so good it makes the reasons for getting the R5 very limited considering the price difference on that one. I've now got this as the main camera and an RP as a backup. "

"Have an RP and it is too slow... the R6 blows it out of the water... it feels right in my head, focusing is a breeze, it feels and is canon! Great picture quality, instinctive to use - also had a 5D mark iii which I broke... and the R6 feels like it was the perfect choice :) Customer service from Castle Cameras B'mouth was fab too - enabling me to click and collect during lockdown!"

"I'm delighted with my Canon EOS R6. It's a big step up from an entry level crop sensor camera but I'm finding my way around it and enjoying every moment. The service I received from Castle Cameras was first class. Despite being a little distance from me, Castle Cameras will be my camera shop of choice going forwards. "
