The EOS R6 full-frame mirrorless camera is designed to meet the demands of both photographers and video content creators who want a strong and versatile camera to keep up with their active lives. It can go from photographing high-speed action sports to filming 4K cinematic video with ease thanks to its high-performance CMOS sensor and DIGIC X image processor.
The EOS R6 features the same base image sensor and image processor as the EOS-1D X Mark III, enabling a native ISO range of 100-102,400. With high-speed continuous shooting of up to 12 fps with the Mechanical shutter and up to 20 fps with Electronic "silent" shutter, the EOS R6 can keep up with just about any fast moving subject. Combined with the new Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system with approx. 100% coverage of the frame, and 1,053 Automatic AF Zones, the EOS R6 will confidently follow elusive subjects at 20fps for sharp images. Tracking subjects is easy and intuitive with the ability to track people using Eye, Face and Head Detection AF, or when tracking the whole body, face or eye of cats, dogs, or birds with Animal Detection AF. With the new 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilizer, up to 8-stops of shake correction is possible with both non-stabilized and optically image-stabilized lenses, opening up many more creative opportunities for incredibly stable lower light photo or video content creation. Those looking for creative cinematic video options will appreciate frame rates including 4K 60P and Full HD 120P with the option of internally recorded 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log or HDR-PQ recording. And the inclusion of Dual SDXC UHS-II card slots combined with Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® allows for multiple transfer and automatic backup options, making the EOS R6 ready when you are.
High Image Quality featuring a 20 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor
Featuring a Canon-developed 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approx. 20 effective megapixels, the EOS R6 camera is engineered with an imaging system, designed to capture sharp and detailed images, even in low-light scenarios. Dark portions of an image even at high ISO speeds, and increased sensitivity are rendered with lower noise. While the high-speed image capture rate of EOS R6's accelerating frame-to-frame shooting performance. The sensor also includes Dual Pixel CMOS AF II for high-speed, precise AF during Live View still and movie recording.
DIGIC X Image Processor
The EOS R6 camera features a powerful DIGIC X Image Processor, enabling high-performance operation and coordination or processes such as Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, Image Stabilization, image processing, and video functionality. Powerful all around, the DIGIC X Image Processor helps ensure your photos and videos look sharp and high resolution with minimal noise or grain.
ISO range of 100-102400; Expandable to 204800
Featuring an ISO range of 100-102400 (expandable to 204800), the EOS R6 camera delivers high standard and expanded ISOs (for still images), and a score of Auto ISO options to help enhance shooting in varied and fast-changing lighting situations. The EOS R6 camera has an extended ISO range that contributes to its ability to excel in nearly every situation it faces.
Up to 12 fps with Mechanical Shutter
Delivering incredible performance at speeds of up to 12 fps, the EOS R6 camera can capture the split-second details between a subject’s movements. This is great for dynamic action photos such as athletes, animals or vehicles in motion.
Up to 20 fps Electronic (Silent) Shutter
Especially helpful for wildlife photography, journalism and situations where photographers need to remain discrete, the EOS R6 camera features a selectable electronic (silent) shutter mode, and can capture images at up to 20 fps. With a fast AF/AE system, DIGIC X image Processor and high-speed recording with new Dual card slots, the EOS R6 helps ensure that camera operations are performed quickly and precisely.
High-speed Focusing with Dual Pixel CMOS AF
The EOS R6 camera’s highly responsive Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system features an incredible 1,053 Automatic AF zones that can be designated as auto-focus focal points (when Face + Tracking priority AF is selected). This ensures higher-precision than has been seen in previous EOS cameras and enables the camera to execute consistent and impressive autofocus tracking of the subject. Fast action can be captured and focus can be maintained with speed, accuracy and ease.
Head and Eye Detection
The EOS R6 brings head and eye detection to a new level. Even in situations where a camera may struggle to detect a subject, the EOS R6 can locate and a person’s head, face or eye when people detection is set, allowing ease and accuracy when capturing videos or still images, or while in Live View mode.
Animal detection is possible with the EOS R6 camera. Developed using Deep Learning Technology, the EOS R6 can effectively track the whole body, face, or eye of cats, dogs, or birds for speed and precision – regardless of the animal’s size, posture, or orientation of the face.
4K up to 60fps, 1080p up to 120fps 10-bit 4:2:2 with Canon Log or HDR PQ, Internal Recording in all Formats, with Auto Focus
Powered by the DIGIC X image processor, the EOS R6 is designed with the video content creator in mind. With oversampled UHD 4K recording at up to 60fps, Full-HD 1080p recording at up to 60fps and Full-HD High-frame rate recording at up to 120fps, the EOS R6 is a versatile camera with options for a variety of different shooting scenarios. Featuring internally recorded 4:2:2 10-bit H.265 Canon Log recording, and 4:2:2 10-bit H.265 HDR PQ recording, regardless what your timeline for delivery may be, advanced users will find EOS R6 capable of capturing confidently even during challenging high-contrast exposure situations. Moreover, oversampled UHD 4K 4:2:2 10-bit video signal at up to 60fps can be output from the HDMI port with a choice of either Picture Style, Canon Log or HDR PQ format, the output can be recorded to another device externally, or the footage can be viewed on an HDR PQ compatible TV. Additionally high-end features such as Interval Timer, 4K Time-Lapse mode, Mic and Headphone jacks, and Zebras are available to provide advanced-level control and versatility to the video content creator.
In-body Image Stabilizer can provide up to 8 stops of Shake Correction*
The EOS R6 camera features Canon's new 5-axis IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilizer). This will not only help enhance the ability to hand-hold still images at slower shutter speeds but it will also help to reduce camera shake when recording movies. Additionally, the EOS R6 camera’s In-Body Image Stabilizer will work in combination with Lens-based Optical Image Stabilizers found in many Canon RF and EF lenses.
Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD
The EOS R6 camera features a 3.0-inch, Clear View LCD II Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD. Its extensive flexibility makes it easy to compose and shoot from virtually any angle, making selfies simple and enabling the LCD to fold away when not in use.
