Closer Look at the Canon EOS R6!

  By Ryley Smith

 

The Canon Creator Lab Road Trip is in Calgary this week! They will have both the R5 and the R6 for you to try in their fun, hands-on, photography pop-ups around the city! To get you even more excited for this awesome this opportunity, we are going to take a closer look at the Canon EOS R6 and what TCSTV thought of this camera! 

Taking a look at the specs, the Canon EOS R6 features 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approx. 20 effective megapixels and a Dual Pixel CMOS AF II for high-speed, precise AF during Live View still and movie recording. It also features a powerful DIGIC X Image Processor, allowing for high-performance operation and coordination or processes such as Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, Image Stabilization, image processing, and video functionality. 

Delivering incredible performance at speeds of up to 12 fps with the mechanical shutter, the EOS R6 camera can capture the split-second details between a subject’s movements. When using the electronic shutter, it can capture images at up to 20 fps, making it perfect for wildlife photography, journalism and situations where photographers need to remain discrete. When adding the fact that the R6 has an ISO range of 100-102400 (expandable to 204800), it opens up many creative and flexible shooting opportunities. 

Expanding from before, the Canon R6 also has a highly responsive Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system. This system features an incredible 1,053 Automatic AF zones that can be designated as auto-focus focal points (when Face + Tracking priority AF is selected). This ensures higher-precision than has been seen in previous EOS cameras and enables the camera to execute consistent and impressive autofocus tracking of the subject. The R6 also features an expansive focus area of approx. 100% horizontal and 100% vertical when working with compatible RF and EF lenses. This means fast and impressive focusing even when composing your subject far from the center of the frame. When it comes to night photography, the AF can operate in light as dim as a light rating of EV -6.5, a first in an EOS mirrorless camera!

Then, of course, the EOS R6 brings head and eye detection to a new level. Even in situations where a camera may struggle to detect a subject, the R6 can locate and a person’s head, face or eye when people detection is set, allowing ease and accuracy when capturing videos or still images, or while in Live View mode. Animal detection is also possible with the R6. Developed using Deep Learning Technology, the EOS R6 can effectively track the whole body, face, or eye of cats, dogs, or birds for speed and precision – regardless of the animal’s size, posture, or orientation of the face.

 

Now, if all these specs don’t have you itching to try out the new Canon EOS R6 at one of the Canon Road Trip locations in Calgary, take a look at TCSTV’s latest hands-on review!
