Canon Eos R6 Review 2023

The Canon EOS R6 is the more economical of the company’s full-frame cameras for professionals and enthusiasts. sensor is combined with a finely tuned DIGIC X image processor to produce stunning stills. The Canon EOS R6 is a camera aimed squarely at enthusiasts. A 20MP sensor, in-body image stabilization, 4K video recording, Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus, and 20fps burst shooting are among the highlights. It is slightly more expensive than some of its closest competitors, like the Nikon Z6 Mark II and Sony A7 III.

Let’s see Canon Eos R6 Review


The Canon EOS R6 features a 20.1MP full-frame sensor, allowing you to shoot faster and for longer periods without creating massive file sizes. The R6 uses Canon’s new RF mount, however you can buy an adapter if you have EF mount lenses from an older Canon camera. It’s worth mentioning, though, that Canon’s APS-C mirrorless cameras use a different mount.

 It has the same 20.1MP sensor as the original, but without the fancy new low-pass filter (which remains exclusive to the EOS R5). It also includes Animal AF, which recognizes the eyes, faces, and bodies of dogs, cats, and birds in flight and can track them. Because the R6 has fewer (and thus larger) pixels on the image sensor than the R5, it performs better in low light.


The swift 120 fps refresh rate facilitates natural motion rendering, providing a more lifelike viewfinder experience. Additionally, the high-resolution 3.69m-dot 0.5 electronic viewfinder offers a bright and detailed option for eye-level viewing. The rear display has a variable-angle design that helps with front-facing filmings, such as for vlogging, as well as shooting from high and low angles.

Strong Ergonomics:

The Canon EOS R6 is nearly identical to the more expensive 45MP R5, but not quite. The R5’s exposure mode is controlled by a dial rather than a button, and the top information LCD is absent. By hitting the Q button or clicking the Q icon on the touch screen, you can access the on-screen settings menu.

Build and handling:

Replaces the R and RP’s compass-like D-pad buttons with a DSLR-style control wheel and joystick. Two memory card slots, in the form of twin UHS-II SD slots, provide the R5 an unspoken edge. It also uses the same new 2,130mAh battery as its predecessor, the L6N, the LP-E6NH.

Power and connectivity:

Built-in Bluetooth allows you to share photographs and video over the internet to a smartphone, tablet, or computer. The battery life isn’t amazing, but it’ll get you through roughly 380 shots with the EVF and even more with the LCD. With the R6, you may use your previous batteries, but you’ll receive fewer pictures per charge.


With the electronic shutter, the Ricoh R6 can shoot at up to 20 frames per second, or 12 frames per second with the mechanical shutter. With 6,072 AF points to choose from, Dual-Pixel CMOS AF II focusing is also a major plus. When it comes to low-light shooting, in-body image stabilization (IBIS) gives you an advantage of up to 8 stops — the best of its kind. While the R6 is suitable for casual videographers, those seeking a more comprehensive setup should look elsewhere.

Top-Flight Focus:

Canon’s new R6 digital camera can compete with the 1D X Mark III and boasts some of the industry’s best autofocus. The autofocus is excellent, and the mechanical shutter can shoot at 12 frames per second, with an electronic shutter enabling silent capture at 20 frames per second. If you choose a fast memory card, like the 300MBps Sony Tough Card I tested, you’ll be able to take hundreds of pictures in a row without the camera slowing down.

4K Video:

Canon’s new R6 camera can shoot 4K at 60 frames per second, but if you’re pushing it hard, overheating is still an issue. The revised firmware monitors the camera temperature more frequently, allowing you to resume recording sooner if it cannot be cooled. If the R6 overheats, it can still record at 1080p, so it’s not completely useless for video. At a similar budget, we recommend the Panasonic S1 if you’re looking for a camera primarily for video. If you’re looking for a low-cost full-frame video camera, the Sigma fp is a good option.


  • There are two card slots.
  • The town’s best autofocus
  • EVF Swing-out touch LCD
  • Video quality in 4K is excellent.
  • Quick, intelligent autofocus


  • 4K recording restrictions
  • The battery life might be improved.
  • There is still room for improvement in the lens system.


With a stabilized full-frame image sensor and an exceptional autofocus system, the EOS R6 is Canon’s best mirrorless camera, but video-first creatives may want to go elsewhere.
