Summary

Canon had a bit of an identity crisis making the switch to full-frame mirrorless. The EOS R6 is the mirrorless camera that owners of the company's mid-level DSLRs have been holding out for. The camera feels like working with a DSLR, but offers the in-body stabilization and electronic viewfinder.

Canon had a bit of an identity crisis making the switch to full-frame mirrorless. The R6 is the cheaper of the two newly-announced cameras, selling for about $2,500 for the body-only. It offers a lower resolution 20.1-megapixel sensor, a plastic body, and skipping some of the R5's biggest features.

Canon EOS R6 ($2,499, body only) is the more affordable of the company's pair of pro- and enthusiast-geared full-frame cameras. Its autofocus, capture speed, and IBIS system are just as good as the high-dollar R6. The camera ships with Canon's newest battery, the LP-E6NH.

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
Canon's new EOS R6 is essentially a more affordable R5, albeit with a significantly lower sensor resolution and more limited (but still excellent) video recording capabilities. The updated sensor incorporates Canon's second-generation Dual Pixel autofocus architecture (called Dual Pixel CMOS AF II) This has improved phase-difference detection autofocusing in Live View on the R6.

  • Excellent image quality
  • 4K video at high frame rates
