The Canon EOS R6 produces some really good photos. The photographs have a very appealing tone, and I think the dynamic range of 14.3 stops is more than sufficient.

Canon EOS R6 Image Quality

Color science has long been a specialty of Canon, and the EOS R6 lives up to that reputation. If you value a natural look, I am typically rather satisfied with the files right out of the Canon video camera and they don’t require any processing. The JPEG files are excellent as well, giving off a lovely, sharp, rich appearance.


The Canon EOS R6 performs exceptionally well in terms of speed. It captures 12 frames per second with a mechanical shutter and 20 frames per second with an electronic shutter. I never see Canon camera latency or buffer overflow when using the camera extensively. It writes the material to the SD cards well. It does have two card slots! Below is further information on that.

Overall, using the EOS R6 is quite simple and quick. The touch screen makes adjusting the settings on the back screen quite simple, and all the functions I need are easily accessible. The viewfinder/monitor sensor, which rapidly flips the display from the back screen to the EVF, is the final feature that I like.

Canon Camera Battery Charger Precautions

  • Either the day before or the day of use, charge the battery.
    Even while not in use, batteries that have been charged progressively lose their charge.
  • Take out the battery from the camera while not in use.
    Long-term use of the battery in the camera will cause a small amount of power current to be released, which will shorten the battery’s life and cause excess discharge. Keep the protective cover on when storing the battery. The performance of the battery may be lowered if it is stored after it is fully charged.
  • You can use the Canon Camera battery charger abroad as well.
    Power sources ranging from 100 V AC to 240 V AC 50/60 Hz are compatible with the battery charger. Attach a plug adaptor that is available commercially for the relevant nation or area if needed. Avoid connecting to portable voltage transformers to prevent damage.

Resetting the Camera

You can go back to the original settings for the camera’s menu and shooting features.

Canon EOS R6 Turn On


  • CMOS Sensor
    The EOS R6 produces images with exceptional quality thanks to its high-performance 20 MP CMOS image sensor.
  • Image Stabilizer
    In-body image stabilization provides up to 8 stops of shaking correction for steady, smooth imagery.
  • Robust & Reliable
    Its great durability is mostly due to its magnesium-based internal construction and polycarbonate outer body.
  • Precise Autofocus
    With 1,053 AF regions, Dual Pixel CMOS AF II offers almost 100% area coverage, enabling great detail.
  • Advanced Image Processor
    With great speed and economy, DIGIC X powers 4K capture, improves quality, lowers noise, and much more.


Make sure everything is ready before you attach your strap to your Canon Camera. The Canon Strap to Camera has a nylon strap for the shoulders and neck on both ends. Each nylon strap contains a plastic or rubber loop that looks like a little sleeve with a buckle attached to it.

Thread the loose end of the camera strap through the sleeve to unbuckle it. The Canon Camera Strap will still be fastened with the plastic clasp and sleeve.

Canon Strap ER-EOS R6


The introduction of its costlier sibling, the Canon EOS R5, eclipsed the debut of the feature-rich and affordable Canon EOS R6. The R6 is the right choice if you want many Canon EOS R5 capabilities without the high cost and impressive video specifications.

Canon EOS R6 Conclusion

The only things this Canon Camera lacks are inexpensive RF mount lenses and a smaller form factor. I look forward to seeing additional full-frame mirrorless cameras from Canon, as well as more reasonably priced models like the R6 Canon.
