Canon has hit the sweet spot of what serious enthusiasts and professionals are after from a general-purpose full-frame mirrorless camera. Built around the same weather-sealed magnesium alloy chassis as the EOS R5, it doesn’t skimp on advanced features or functionality and its 5-axis in-body stabilisation provides a staggering 8 stops of compensation with selected RF lenses. It feels every bit like a true EOS camera when it’s being used and presents the benefits of mirrorless with the only drawback being the time you need to give it to cool between 4K video recordings. As a stills camera it ticks all the right boxes if you don’t require the EOS R5’s resolution output.

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 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 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.
The 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.
