The Canon EOS R6 is now available for hire! This advanced full frame mirrorless camera has now arrived here at Hireacamera and is the newest addition to our collection of the revolutionary EOS R System, built on the future-proof RF Mount. EOS R6 is perfect for enthusiasts and professionals moving to mirrorless and looking for greater capabilities, capturing 20.1 megapixel stills at 20fps, stunning 4K video up to 60p and Full HD at up to 120p.
Next generation CMOS sensor technology combined with high performance RF lenses enable users to capture new levels of detail at industry leading speeds. The EOS R6 can shoot up to 20fps with the electronic shutter in complete silence with full auto exposure (AE) and auto focus (AF) tracking. Users can be confident capturing action, both stills and video, in exceptional quality in any location without disturbing subjects. The mechanical and electronic first curtain shutter also delivers high-speed continuous shooting up to 12fps.
For the first time in the EOS series, EOS R6 (and EOS R5) incorporate 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS), providing benefits for users of all types of lenses. Designed to work collaboratively with the IS system of RF lenses, the solution has been engineered so that RF lenses and the sensor work together to correct pitch and yaw with the sensor correcting X-Y and roll movements. This intelligent stabilisation system corrects at up to an incredible 8-stops – currently the world’s best image stabilisation – for new levels of creativity when shooting handheld at slow shutter speeds or filming without a tripod.
The wide diameter of the RF Mount ensures that light continues to reach the entire sensor all the way to the corners, even with the sensor movement introduced with in-body image stabilisation. The 54mm diameter enables RF lenses to be designed with larger image circles facilitating greater movement of the body IS system, meaning some non-IS RF lenses such as the RF 85mm F1.2L USM or RF 28-70mm F2L USM can also achieve up to 8-stops of image stabilisation.
Users of EF lenses (when using an EF-RF adapter) will experience enhanced IS performance as in-body IS works with IS enabled EF lenses to provide roll and X-Y correction. In addition, even non-IS EF lenses will benefit from the 5-axis correction provided by EOS R5 and EOS R6 in-body IS.
DIGIC X processor technology at the core of EOS R6 – the same technology in the coveted EOS-1D X Mark III – supports renowned next generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF II pushing speed and reliability to unmatched levels. The world’s fastest AF (at the time of writing), focuses in as little as 0.05 and the EOS R6 is the first EOS camera to offer a minimum EV for AF of -6.5EV. The high precision AF is effective in even poorly lit or low contrast shooting conditions.
The iTR AF X AF system has been programmed using deep-learning AI and face/eye detection mode ensures subjects are kept sharp even when moving unpredictably with a shallow depth of field. Even if a person turns away for a moment, their head continues to be tracked.
Advanced tracking enabled by deep learning algorithms recognises faces and eyes of humans, and now includes cats, dogs and birds in both still and movie modes. The EOS R6 maintains high-precision focus and tracking regardless of the subject’s size, posture, orientation or direction of the face – helping users to confidently shoot even the most unpredictable subjects.
With built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, the EOS R6 can be easily connected to a smartphone and networks allowing high-speed file sharing and FTP/FTPS transfer. This functionality also allows for the cameras to be remotely controlled using the Camera Connect and EOS Utility apps, tethered to a PC or Mac via Wi-Fi or high-speed USB 3.1 Gen 2.
With content delivery just as important as image and video capture, the EOS R6 supports automatic transfer of image files from the device to the image.canon cloud platform to easily share and print images or integrate with Google Photos or Adobe Creative Cloud workflows.
EOS R6, like EOS R5, showcases the amazing capabilities of the EOS R System, giving enthusiasts the potential to take pin-sharp images and movies handheld. Providing class-leading speed and full frame quality, EOS R6 is a powerful and versatile camera far exceeding the demands of enthusiasts and semi-professionals across all genres. Sports and wildlife enthusiasts can confidently capture fast moving action utilising the up to 20fps speed, flexibility of up to 6,072 selectable AF points and deep learning based automatic face, eye and animal AF tracking modes. The 20.1 megapixel CMOS sensor shares many technologies and performance seen with the EOS-1D X Mark III, providing 100-102,400 auto ISO range enabling users to produce clean images in the toughest low light environments such as weddings and indoor events, providing additional flexibility and choice.
Enabling content creators to meet the increasing demand to produce both stunning still and moving image, the innovative EOS R6 can film in 4K UHD resolution at up to 59.94fps achieved through oversampling from 5.1K. Output incredible slow-motion footage with AF support using Full HD at up to 119.88fps. During movie shooting, zebra display can be used as a guide to exposure adjustment, which is particularly useful in conditions that typically result in overexposed highlights. With the option to record internally in 8-bit H.264 or 10-bit YCbCr 4:2:2 H.265 and Canon Log, users can experience ultimate post-production flexibility.
The 0.5inch 3.69 million dot EVF working up to 120fps maximum refresh rate supports minimal lag ideal for photographing sports, offering a transparent and responsive view of shooting subjects. The 3-inch vari-angle 1.62 million dot LCD screen encourages shooting from creative angles. Dual card slots allow users to input 2x SD UHS II cards and record to both cards simultaneously, with the ability to record in different formats for safety, security and speed.
