Deal! Canon EOS R6 only in $2,399.99 at Best Buy

Canon took a while to find its footing with mirrorless cameras, but the Canon EOS R6 proves that those days are long gone. A quick glance at its specifications reveals that it is capable of competing with and even outperforming the best mirrorless cameras from Sony, Nikon, and Fujifilm. How so? It’s a full-frame 20.1-megapixel camera with class-leading image stabilization, a 6,072-point dual-pixel autofocus system, 12fps burst shooting, 4K video, and a high-resolution OLED electronic viewfinder.

In short, it has almost everything an enthusiast mirrorless camera could want, with only a couple of minor drawbacks. Among them are the fact that it lacks the truly high megapixel count enjoyed by its more expensive 45MP sibling, the Canon R5, and the similarly priced 33MP Sony A7 IV, as well as video performance that falls short of the absolute best.

There have been so many cameras aimed at videographers that it’s refreshing to see that manufacturers haven’t forgotten about stills photographers. Canon’s target market for the new EOS R6 is “photographers more focused on stills” who may want to shoot videos on occasion, with the camera inheriting some high-end features from the EOS 1D X Mark III, beginning with the processor.

Canon’s latest Digic X imaging engine works in tandem with a slightly redesigned 20.1MP full-frame CMOS sensor that, according to the manufacturer, is “similar” to the one used in the sports DSLR. Canon’s second-generation Dual Pixel autofocus architecture is included in the updated sensor. This improves phase-difference detection autofocusing in Live View on the R6, as well as faster readout speeds during fast continuous shooting and 4K video capture at high frame rates. This should, in theory, reduce rolling shutter distortions when using a sensor-based electronic shutter.

20.1MP may appear to be a step down for a camera designed to be an all-arounder, but it’s all about the significantly improved speed. When using its mechanical shutter, the R6 can shoot bursts of 12fps, which is a remarkable number for a camera aimed squarely at enthusiasts and hobbyists. If that’s not fast enough for you, switch to its electronic shutter and the R6 will match the top speed of the EOS 1D X Mark III at 20fps.

Lower pixel count also means larger pixels, which translates to better light sensitivity and a higher signal-to-noise ratio, giving the EOS R6 a native ISO range of 100-102,400 that can be expanded either side to ISO 50 and ISO 204,800 – a significant improvement over the EOS R’s native ISO sensitivity of 100 to 40,000. Canon claims that the decision to use a lower resolution sensor was also made to help event photographers manage their workflow; lower pixel count means smaller file sizes, which speeds up transfer rates.
