Faster than fast, in silence
Capture the perfect decisive moment, shooting 20-megapixel photos at up to 20 fps 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 stabilisation.
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 0.05s. 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 online audience and upload them 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 advantage.
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 0.05sec and in light levels as low as -6.5 EV 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.
Within two years of launching the Full-Frame RF-mount, Canon already offers 15 native lenses. The current RF lens line-up covers focal-lengths from 15 to 800mm with rectilinear lenses. This is nearly the same coverage as the entire lineup of Full-Frame EF-mount lenses for SLRs!
Focal length is not everything though and there are far more EF lenses than RF ones. Canon demonstrated the potential of the RF-mount by releasing an ultra-bright F/1.2 lens and the only F/2 constant-aperture zoom lens with Full-Frame coverage. Subsequently, lenses with all maximum apertures from F/1.2 to F/11 were added.
Canon currently offers no less than 5 general purpose zoom lenses, with a mix of focal-range and maximum aperture for all preferences.
The brightest Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L USM offers a slightly narrower field-of-view than others while allowing at least 1-stop more light through.
There is a classic bright Canon RF 24-70mm F/2.8L IS USM workhorse lens which features builtin image-stabilization for older RF-mount cameras.
Trading one stop of brightness for more reach is the Canon RF 24-105mm F/4L IS USM constant-aperture zoom, one of the best all-purpose lenses on the market.
A highly compact Canon RF 24-105mm F/4-7.1 IS STM weighs about half the second lightest lens here. This lens provides the same focal-range and maximum aperture at wide-angle as the previous on but becomes extremely dim when zoomed in.
One of the few ultra-zooms for Full-Frame mirrorless digital cameras is the Canon RF 24-240mm F/4-6.3 IS USM. It packs 10X optical zoom with a rather dim maximum aperture to manage its 750g weight.
Only a single ultra-wide zoom exists for the Canon RF-mount. The Canon RF 15-35mm F/2.8L IS USM is an outstanding lens for architecture and interior photography thanks to its 110° angle-of-view and bright F/2.8 maximum aperture. Third-party manufacturers offer a handful of ultra-wide prime lenses.
Two complementary telephoto zoom lenses made it into the RF-mount lineup. One is the Canon RF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS USM which is universally sought after for street and wedding photography, plus sports quite often. The other is an extremely long Canon RF 100-500mm F/4.5-7.1L IS USM zoom with dim variable-aperture. This telephoto lens provides a reasonable compromise between size and reach, particularly when paired with an R5 or R6 which augment its stabilization efficiency from 5 to 8 stops.
The rest of the line-up can be split into bright prime lenses with apertures of F/1.2 to F/2 and a pair of extreme telephoto lenses with fixed F/11 apertures. Bright primes all have focal lengths between 35 and 85mm. These lenses can be used for low-light and portrait photography. Two even have semi-macro capability with a 0.5X magnification. The fixed-aperture lenses are suitable for very distant and still subjects.
