High Speed, High Performance

20.1MP CMOS Sensor  & DIGIC X

The EOS R6 is equipped with an approximately 20.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, an improved version of the same sensor found in the flagship professional DSLR EOS-1D X Mark III.

The latest DIGIC X image processor gives the EOS R6 the high-speed processing capability to perform high-speed shooting, fast and precise AF performance, excellent noise reduction and other outstanding achievements possible.

Up to 20 FPS Burst Shooting

Capture desired and unexpected moments with ultra-fast, near-silent burst shooting capabilities of up to 20 fps, even when photographing weddings, sporting events and wildlife, where silence is golden.

AF/AE tracking ensure that your shots are sharp and in focus.

HDR PQ HEIF 10-Bit Recording

Achieve realistic images with HDR PQ images, which offer more dynamic range and 4 times more gradation than conventional JPEG, without the need for post-processing.

HEIF files can be converted easily to HDR-PQ-like JPEG format, either in the camera or on another device, using Digital Photo Professional.

Fast & Precise Autofocus (AF)

Dual Pixel CMOS AF II


Newly upgraded, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF II enables the EOS R6 to perform fast and highly precise autofocusing and subject-tracking across approximately 100% × 100%* of the image area.


With up to 6,072 manually selectable AF positions, and up to 1,053 AF frame segments in the AF auto-area selection modes, you can take aim on small, unpredictable subjects and enjoy greater freedom in image composition.


*Focusing area varies depending on AF method and lens attached. 

Eye, Face & Head Detection

Similar to the flagship DSLR EOS-1D X Mark III, the EOS R6's advanced algorithms based on deep learning technology allow you to effectively detect and track a human’s eye, face or head, even when the subject is not facing the camera directly. 

Animal Detection AF

Capturing unpredictable wildlife or pets on camera is now even easier with the EOS R6’s Animal Detection AF, which can identify and track the eyes, faces and bodies of cats, dogs, and even birds.

Outstanding Low-light Performance


A hallmark of EOS R system cameras is their outstanding low-light capabilities, and the EOS R6 excels exactly in this, with a native ISO range of 100 to 102,400 and low luminance AF sensitivity of up to EV -6.5.

This means you can achieve focus with ease in low light, even in close to pitch-dark situations where the subject is hard to see even with the naked eye.

Unparalleled Movie Recording Performance

4K Uncropped Video

Record movies in breathtaking 4K UHD resolution at 60p (NTSC)/50p (PAL) without crop, using the entire width of the sensor.

With 4 times the resolution of Full HD videos, and borrowing image processing technology from Canon’s acclaimed Cinema EOS System, you will enjoy richer and more realistic 4K UHD footage.

4K Frame Grab & Time-Lapse

Fancy a particular moment in your video? Grab a high resolution still image of approximately 8.3MP from a 4K movie.

You can also record 4K time-lapse videos easily, even in challenging lighting conditions.

HDMI Output

The EOS R6 supports up to 4K UHD video output via HDMI for viewing on an external recorder or HDR TV.

Canon Log

Catering to the professional needs of post-production, Canon Logo, originally a key staple of the Cinema EOS System, gives you up to 12 stops of dynamic range in your movie footage.

You also get greater control over shadows, highlights and colour saturation in post-processing for rich, detailed footage even in high-contrast scenes.


Record highly realistic HDR video footage akin to viewing with the actual human eye. No colour grading is needed, which streamlines the post-production workflow.

HDR PQ footages can also be viewed on compatible displays.

Zebra Display

The Zebra Display overlays a striped pattern on overexposed areas when viewed through the electronic viewfinder (EVF) or Vari-angle LCD screen, giving you greater control over exposure and highlights during movie shooting.

Powerful Image Stabilisation

In-Body Image Stabilizer X Optical Image Stabilizer

A new 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilizer in the EOS R6 corrects image blur caused by camera shake, allowing for sharper handheld capture, even with a slower shutter speed.

This also works in tandem with the Optical Image Stabilizer in the lens, offering stability equivalent to shooting with a shutter speed up to 8 stops* faster, effectively opening up more possibilities for low-light handheld shooting, super-telephoto and long exposure photography.


*Subject to lens pairing and other conditions.

Movie digital IS

On top of In-Body IS and in-lens Optical IS, Movie digital IS further enhances stability to reduce blurring and unsteady footage, even when shooting handheld or while walking.

Wireless Connectivity

image.canon Cloud

Automatically upload images and video files in their original quality from your EOS R6 to the image.canon cloud-based storage platform for easy access anytime and anywhere, from your PC or smart device.

Image.canon is also compatible with third-party services such as Google Drive, YouTube and Adobe Creative Cloud.

*Information subjected to changes. Refer to https://image.canon/ for latest info.

Built-In Wi-Fi

The EOS R6 is equipped with built-in support for 2.4GHz* wireless LAN, allowing for high-speed data transfer to your PC or smart device.  Transfer to FTP server is also supported.

*Specifications may vary by country/region.


Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology enables a constant, low-powered connection between the camera and a paired compatible smart device.

This allows for geotagging of  images and remote camera operation through the Camera Connect app.

Enhanced Design & Operability

Dual Card Slots

The EOS R6 doubles your memory capacity with dual card slots that fits two SD cards*, so you can now perform 4K recording and continuous shooting with peace of mind.

*SD, SDHC, SDXC (UHS-II compatible)

Shutter Durability

High-speed continuous shooting calls for additional shutter durability. The newly designed shutter mechanism of the EOS R6 has an outstanding endurance of approximately 300,000 cycles, so you can fire those burst shots with peace of mind.
The shutter curtain can be set to close upon powering off to prevent dust from enter. It can also be left open to eliminate any sound during power up, especially when performing silent shooting.

Strong & Durable

A robust magnesium alloy body ensures toughness and durability while remaining relatively light, whereas weather sealings on critical areas help prevent dust and moisture from penetrating the body.

High Battery Capacity

The new high-capacity LP-E6NH battery features an increased 2130mAh capacity, allowing you to shoot more and do more with the feature-packed EOS R6.

The camera is also compatible with the BG-R10 battery grip that accommodates two battery slots and easier handling for vertical shooting.

Improved Ergonomics

AF selection is quick and intuitive with the multi-controller, which has 3 levels of sensitivity to choose from.

The EOS R6 also has a Main dial, 2 Quick Control dials and a Mode dial for quick and convenient operation.

High-Precision EVF

A high resolution electronic viewfinder of approximately 3.69 million dots displays bright and clear images even at f/22, which comes in useful for ultra-telephoto shots.

It also has an increased display frame rate of 119.88 fps for faster response time to accommodate burst shooting.
