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.
'The Canon EOS R6 is a camera that seamlessly merges innovation with comfort – offering a suite of features wrapped up in a sturdy weather-sealed magnesium alloy chassis, similar to its sibling, the EOS R5. This model promises unparalleled stability with its 5-axis in-body image stabilisation, enabling an impressive 8 stops of compensation when paired with select RF lenses. It's a mirrorless camera that gives you the freedom to capture top-notch stills and 4K videos without any compromise on quality. The EOS R6 brings the unique attributes of mirrorless technology to the forefront, with the only trade-off being the cooling time between 4K video recordings, but when it comes to still photography, it ticks all the right boxes for professionals who don't require the EOS R5's resolution output.'
