Canon EOS R6 review: A perfect hybrid shooter with a big video flaw


Canon's EOS R6 is the full-frame camera everyone wished for instead of the EOS R. While the 20-megapixel sensor lacks resolution compared to rivals, it offers in-body stabilization, Dual Pixel autofocus and 10-bit 4K 60 fps video -- all killer specs...

4K 10-bit video ; 5-axis stabilization ; Flip-out display ; Compact size ; Top-notch video and photo autofocus ; Good image quality

Overheating issues ; Middling dynamic range ; Lousy menus ; Micro HDMI port

Canon EOS R6 review: A mirrorless to sway DSLR diehards


The Canon EOS R6 is a serious mid-level mirrorless with speed, sharp photos and video, and on-sensor stabilization - but it looks and feels like a DSLR.

Sharp photos and videos ; Smooth autofocus ; Fast shooting speed ; Excellent stabilization ; Good low light performance ; Comfortable grip

A bit bulky ; Buffer struggles with long bursts ; Animal Eye AF under-performed ; Short 4K recording due to overheating

Canon EOS R6 Review


Outstanding 20MP image sensor ; Quick, smart autofocus ; Subject tracking at 20fps ; Large, crisp EVF ; Swing-out touch LCD ; Dual UHS-II SDXC card slots ; Strong 4K video quality

4K60 recording limited by heat ; Fewer pixels than most competitors ; Battery life could be better ; Lens system still has room for growth

The EOS R6 is Canon's best mirrorless camera, with a stabilized, full-frame image sensor and an outstanding autofocus system, but video-first creatives will want to look elsewhere.

Canon EOS R6 Review: not the hybrid king, but a great photographers' camera


The Canon EOS R6 doesn't quite live up to the full promise of its do-everything specs, but it's a great photographers' camera.

The Canon EOS R6 is an easy camera to underestimate if you've only read or heard about it. You can look at its much-discussed video or resolution shortcomings and imagine it's a near miss. But when you go out shooting with it, particularly for stills...

Canon EOS R6 Review


The Canon EOS R6 is a full-featured, fast, high-performing, mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with a relatively low resolution and a mid-level price. The R6 has a Canon EOS 6-series heritage, but the R6's real-world performance is approaching that...

Canon EOS R6 review: A superb mirrorless camera that never misses a shot


The Canon EOS R6 full-frame mirrorless camera offers incredible autofocus, image stabilization and low-light abilities — for a price.

Magical autofocus ; Class-leading image stabilization ; Superior low-light abilities ; Crisp and detailed stills ; Handles well

Overheats for 4K video ; Resolution lower than rivals

Landscape photographers might prefer a higher resolution and committed YouTubers will also want to look elsewhere, but for anyone else this is an easy camera to recommend.

Canon EOS R6 mirrorless camera review: Sensible upgrade for beginners


Canon launched the EOS R6 in India targeting mid-level photographers and filmmakers. But is it wise to spend Rs 2,15,995 on the Canon EOS R6 for its 20.1MP sensor and 4K video capture? Find out in this review.

Ergonomic design ; Autofocus capabilities ; Dual memory card slot

20.1MP sensor

Review: Canon EOS R6 | Canon's Smallest Sports Camera Canon EOS R6


The Canon EOS R6 is a lightning-fast camera, primarily for sports and action.

Compact and light with lightning-fast autofocus and shooting pace. Good battery life and high user-friendliness. Excellent image stabilization. Hosted camera housing.

Image dynamics one step behind the best, and moderate detail resolution on still images.

Canon EOS R6 review


The Canon EOS R6 packs flagship speed and AF – but does it have enough resolution for the masses?

Best autofocus in town ; Best full-frame IBIS ; Pro-grade burst shooting ; Twin card slots

Is 20.1MP enough? ; Recording limits on 4K

The Canon EOS R6 is a versatile all-round camera that can shoot pretty much anything. Aside from a few differences, it's essentially an EOS R5 with lower resolution and less high-end video. If you're content with fewer megapixels, you'll enjoy one of...
