A Review of the Canon R6 Camera

The Canon EOS R6 has not received quite as much fanfare as the R5, but it is quite a capable camera as well. This excellent video review takes a look at the new camera and what you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from DP Review, this great video review takes a look at the new Canon EOS R6 camera. The R6 looks to be a great companion to the R5 and a fantastic all-around camera for a wide variety of situations. The R6 features a 20-megapixel sensor (similar to the one used in the 1D X Mark III) with in-body image stabilization of up to eight stops, base ISO range of 100-102,400, 1,053 focus points, fully articulating rear LCD, 3.69-million-dot EVF with 0.76x magnification, a continuous burst rate of up to 20 fps using the electronic shutter (12 fps using the mechanical), 4K at 60 fps and 230 Mbps, dual UHS-II card slots, and built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. If you do not need super-high resolution or the crazy 8K raw video capture of the R5, the R6 looks like a very well balanced camera for both photo and video work that should work well for a lot of creatives. Check out the video above for the full rundown.

I shot video mostly. 4K is what I need in this decade, 8K perhaps in the next decade. The biggest print that I did was A3 size using an ink printer. So, will R6 be enough? I can use the extra 1.6k EUR for neat lens and adapter

well, a new dawn has come and canon stands above all. just ordered my R6. but looking to buy sony cameras from people going back to canon. whatt you got?

With all the overheating problems these cameras are having (even the R6) nobody's going to be leaving Sony for them. Especially after tomorrow...

I mainly shoot stills and could deal with the 20 megapixels (especially considering its low-light ability), but what I would miss is the top LCD display because I depend on that.
