The EOS R6?a new addition to Canon’s EOS R system that features high-speed continuous shooting and high-speed, high-accuracy autofocus (AF), the next-generation full-frame EOS R6 utilizes a 20.1 megapixel1 full-frame sensor based on the sensor used by Canon’s EOS-1D X Mark III (released in February 2020) flagship camera, and a new DIGIC X image processor.

Utilizing a specially customized version of the full-frame CMOS sensor used by the EOS-1D X Mark III, the new EOS R6 achieves up to approximately 20 FPS when using the electronic shutter2a up to approximately 12 FPS when using the mechanical shutter and electronic curtain2b. What’s more, the camera enables shooting at a maximum normal high sensitivity of up to ISO 102400 when capturing still images as well as 4k/60p video capture3 that allows users to enjoy immersive visual expression.

Autofocus performance has also been improved for the EOS R6, supported by faster signal readout speeds made possible by the new CMOS sensor and faster processing speeds enabled by the DIGIC X image processor. Canon’s new Dual Pixel CMOS AF II technology improves the camera’s autofocus performance. In addition, distance measurement ranges have been expanded to cover up to approximately 100% (H) and 100% (W) of the camera’s monitor4 and when shooting still images, the AF system can automatically select from a maximum of 1,053 points5 on the AF frame. What’s more, the AF system can detect not only eyes, faces and heads of human subjects in frame, but also eyes, faces and bodies6 of dogs, cats and birds, helping to improve the rate of successful image capture.

The new camera is also the first in the EOS series to feature IBIS with 5.0 stops of stabilization. When paired with the IS functionality of attached RF lenses, IS can reach a world-leading7 maximum of 8.0 stops8, making it easier to capture images in scenarios prone to camera shake, such as when using longer focal lengths or when shooting with the camera in hand.

1 Actual pixel count: approximately 21.4 million pixels
a) Does not include EF-S lenses. When used with fully open aperture. For additional information, please refer to the Canon website. Speed of continuous shooting may vary depending on the following: shutter speed, aperture, aperture status during continuous shooting, conditions related to subject, brightness (e.g. when shooting in dark environments), and model of lens used.
b) When using RF lenses and certain EF lenses. For more information, please refer to the Canon website. Continuous shooting speed can vary by up to 3 steps, depending on such factors as type of battery used, level of charge remaining in battery, use of battery grip (and number of batteries inserted), power supply (DC coupler or USB adapter), model of lens used, temperature and use of built-in Wi-Fi. Maximum continuous shooting speed may be reduced depending on the conditions described above, as well as shutter speed, aperture, use of flash, flicker reduction settings, conditions related to subject, brightness (e.g. when shooting in dark environments).
3 4K UHD (59.94fps / 50.00fps)
4 With “Face+Tracking” enabled and use of RF lenses (excluding the RF600mm F11 IS STM, RF800mm F11 IS STM, Extender RF1.4x, Extender RF2x), EF lenses (excluding some in-production models) or the Extender EF III (depending on mode setting of attached lens) when subject frame is displayed. May not be supported during certain scenarios or due to certain conditions related to the subject. For information about compatible lenses, please refer to the Canon website.
5 With “Face+Tracking” enabled and subject not detected.
6 Depending on the subject, animal autofocus may not properly identify the subject as an animal. In addition, non-dog/cat/bird subjects may be identified by animal autofocus.
7 Among interchangeable-lens cameras released prior to July 8, 2020. According to a Canon survey. Also applies to the EOS R5.
8 When using the RF24-105mm F4 L IS USM (released in October 2018) at a focal length of 105mm. Based on CIPA standards. Depending on date of purchase of lens, firmware updates may be required.
