Canon DSLR Rumors

Here are more Canon EOS R6 Specifications [CR2]

A little bit lost in the hype of the Canon EOS R5 is the Canon EOS R6. We broke the news of this model back in January, and Canon hasn’t done any sort of teasing for it. However, some early specs have remained true over the last few months, and now we have more information about the coming EOS R6

The Canon EOS R6 is aimed squarely at people looking for high ISO performance, great video specifications, and priced right for a lot of shooters.

This camera is gonna sell like crazy if those specs play out - oversampled, 10 bit 5k video is what most of us would love to see, along with the AF system and those crazy photo frame rates. Not to mention the fact that many people will probably prefer dual SD over CFexpress/SD like in the R5. The control dial on top in place of top down LCD is concerning, though.

Yes, if AF performance is on par with R5, that is actually pretty good, because traditionally in the DSLR lines, Canon used to cripple the AF performance for the lower models. I wonder if the AF is quick enough to capture fast jets or flying bird actions.

Defenitely, before 2022 begins, this camera will be in my bag (my eos R body still having a lot of work to do). If all this info is true and the DR is same or better than eos R and less noise at higher isos, is THE camera for wedding photography

sorry few questions for anyone who can answer

-could someone explain oversampling 5K video for me please?
- Being C log and 10bit doesn't that mean the grading potential of the 4K and Full HD will be nearly that of Raw video?
-When they say No Raw Video mode I get confused if it means you can grab a RAW frame from the video or does it mean it does not record Raw gradable video
- Ah and do you guys think the R6 will have a joystick also?
nonetheless AMAZING specs!

I was just thinking it would make great 2nd camera to the R5 for wedding work .

Group photo makes the R6 and R5 look like they are built on about the same chassis. Interesting set of specs. I do like that these don't alienate the R or RP, but rather appear to compliment the overall body lineup.
AGREED , I got the RP as a camera that can use RF lenses before I got my main body which was the wait for the R5, I really like that the RP will remain to be the smallest mirrorless camera of the bunch and that would make it a more unique secondary camera to have (for travel photography) something smaller and hopefully more discreet.

- "Oversampled 5K video" likely means that when the camera is capturing 4K, it's doing so by reading the entire sensor at ~5.5K, and then scaling that down to produce a 4K image. This is generally going to produce a higher quality 4K image.

With respect to RAW vs 10 bit:
- RAW on the 1DX3 is 12 bit, not 10 bit. I don't think we know raw depth yet for the R5.
- RAW is not chroma subsampled AFAIK, whereas the 10 bit will likely be 422.

A 10 bit, 422, clog image should be pretty flexible when it comes to grading, but probably wouldn't be "nearly that" of a 12 bit raw image.
