Conquer the darkness with the EOS R6. This full-frame mirrorless camera based on the revolutionary RF mount comes with powerful In-Body Image Stabilization up to 8 stops, ISO range up to 102400 and low luminance AF sensitivity of up to EV -6.5 – all designed to give you optimum performance for low-light photography.
High Speed, High Performance
20.1MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC X
The EOS R6 is equipped with an approximately 20.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, an improved version of the same sensor found in the flagship professional DSLR EOS-1D X Mark III. The latest DIGIC X image processor gives the EOS R6 the high-speed processing capability to perform high-speed shooting, fast and precise AF performance, excellent noise reduction and other outstanding achievements possible.
Up to 20FPS Burst Shooting
Capture desired and unexpected moments with the ultra-fast, near-silent burst shooting capabilities of up to 20 fps, even when photographing weddings, sporting events and wildlife, where silence is golden. AF/AE tracking ensure that your shots are sharp and in focus.
HDR PQ HEIF 10-Bit Recording
Achieve realistic images with HDR PQ images, which offer more dynamic range and 4 times more gradation than conventional JPEG, without the need for post-processing. HEIF files can be converted easily to HDR-PQ-like JPEG format, either in the camera or on another device, using Digital Photo Professional.
Fast and Precise Autofocus (AF)
Dual Pixel CMOS AF II
Newly upgraded, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF II enables the EOS R6 to perform fast and highly precise autofocusing and subject-tracking across approximately 100% × 100%1 of the image area. With up to 6,072 manually selectable AF positions, and up to 1,053 AF frame segments in the AF auto-area selection modes, you can take aim on small, unpredictable subjects and enjoy greater freedom in image composition.
Eye, Face and Head Detection
Similar to the flagship DSLR EOS-1D X Mark III, the EOS R6's advanced algorithms based on deep learning technology allow you to effectively detect and track a human's eye, face or head, even when the subject is not facing the camera directly.
Animal Detection AF
Capturing unpredictable wildlife or pets on camera is now even easier with the EOS R6’s Animal Detection AF, which can identify and track the eyes, faces and bodies of cats, dogs, and even birds.
Outstanding Low-Light Performance
A hallmark of EOS R system cameras is their outstanding low-light capabilities, and the EOS R6 excels exactly in this, with a native ISO range of 100 to 102,400, and low luminance AF sensitivity of up to EV -6.5.
This means you can achieve focus with ease in low light, even in close to pitch-dark situations where the subject is hard to see even with the naked eye.
Unparalleled Movie Recording Performance
4K Uncropped Video
Record movies in breathtaking 4K UHD resolution at 60p (NTSC)/50p (PAL) without crop, using the entire width of the sensor.
With 4 times the resolution of Full HD videos, and borrowing image processing technology from Canon’s acclaimed Cinema EOS System, you will enjoy richer and more realistic 4K UHD footage.
4K Frame Grab and Time-Lapse
Fancy a particular moment in your video? Grab a high resolution still image of approximately 8.3MP from a 4K movie. You can also record 4K time-lapse videos easily, even in challenging lighting conditions.
The EOS R6 supports up to 4K UHD video output via HDMI for viewing on an external recorder or HDR TV.
Catering to the professional needs of post-production, Canon Log, originally a key staple of the Cinema EOS System, gives you up to 12 stops of dynamic range in your movie footage.
You also get greater control over shadows, highlights and colour saturation in post-processing for rich, detailed footage even in high-contrast scenes.
Record highly realistic HDR video footage akin to viewing with the actual human eye. No colour grading is needed, which streamlines the post-production workflow.
HDR PQ footages can also be viewed on compatible displays.
The Zebra Display overlays a striped pattern on overexposed areas when viewed through the electronic viewfinder (EVF) or Vari-angle LCD screen, giving you greater control over exposure and highlights during movie shooting.
Powerful Image Stabilization
In-Body Image Stabilizer x Optical Image Stabilizer
A new 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilizer in the EOS R6 corrects image blur caused by camera shake, allowing for sharper handheld capture, even with a slower shutter speed.
This also works in tandem with the Optical Image Stabilizer in the lens, offering stability equivalent to shooting with a shutter speed up to 8 stops2 faster, effectively opening up more possibilities for low-light handheld shooting, super-telephoto and long exposure photography.
Movie Digital IS
On top of In-Body IS and in-lens Optical IS, Movie digital IS further enhances stability to reduce blurring and unsteady footage, even when shooting handheld or while walking.
Automatically upload images and video files in their original quality from your EOS R6 to the image.canon cloud-based storage platform for easy access anytime and anywhere, from your PC or smart device. Image.canon3 is also compatible with third-party services such as Google Drive, YouTube and Adobe Creative Cloud.
The EOS R6 is equipped with built-in support for 2.4GHz wireless LAN4, allowing for high-speed data transfer to your PC or smart device. Transfer to FTP server is also supported.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology enables a constant, low-powered connection between the camera and a paired compatible smart device. This allows for geotagging of images and remote camera operation through the Camera Connect app.
Enhanced Design and Operability
Dual Card Slots
The EOS R6 doubles your memory capacity with dual card slots that fit two SD cards5, so you can now perform 4K recording and continuous shooting with peace of mind.
High-speed continuous shooting calls for additional shutter durability. The newly designed shutter mechanism of the EOS R6 has an outstanding endurance of approximately 300,000 cycles, so you can fire those burst shots with peace of mind.
The shutter curtain can be set to close upon powering off to prevent dust from enter. It can also be left open to eliminate any sound during power up, especially when performing silent shooting.
Strong and Durable
A robust magnesium alloy body ensures toughness and durability while remaining relatively light, whereas weather sealings on critical areas help prevent dust and moisture from penetrating the body.
High Battery Capacity
The new high-capacity LP-E6NH battery features an increased 2130mAh capacity, allowing you to shoot more and do more with the feature-packed EOS R6. The camera is also compatible with the BG-R10 battery grip that accommodates two battery slots and easier handling for vertical shooting.
AF selection is quick and intuitive with the multi-controller, which has 3 levels of sensitivity to choose from. The EOS R6 also has a Main Dial, two Quick Control Dials, and a Mode Dial for quick and convenient operation.
A high resolution electronic viewfinder of approximately 3.69 million dots displays bright and clear images even at f/22, which comes in useful for ultra-telephoto shots. It also has an increased display frame rate of 119.88 fps for faster response time to accommodate burst shooting.
