Here are more specifications for the Canon EOS R6

Here are more (no video information) specifications for the Canon EOS R6.

Canon EOS R6 Specifications:

● Equipped with a full-size CMOS sensor with an effective pixel count of approximately 20.10 million pixels, which is customized based on the sensor equipped with “EOS-1D X Mark III”. High image quality and high-speed continuous shooting are achieved by the high-speed signal readout of the CMOS sensor, high-speed processing of the new video engine “DIGIC X”, and high-performance “RF lens”.
● When shooting with the electronic shutter, high-speed continuous shooting of up to about 20 frames/second is achieved with AF/AE tracking. You can shoot without worrying about the shutter sound in scenes such as facing wild animals and playing golf.
● When shooting with the mechanical shutter/electronic front curtain, high-speed continuous shooting of up to approximately 12 frames/sec.
● AF performance is improved as “dual pixel CMOS AF II” by high-speed signal readout of the new CMOS sensor and high-speed processing of new image engine. When “Face + Tracking priority AF” is set, the distance measurement area is expanded to a maximum of approximately 100% (vertical) x maximum 100% (horizontal) of the screen. Furthermore, when shooting still images, the AF frame is automatically selected from a maximum of 1053 divided areas.
● Supports the detection of human eyes, faces, and heads. Compared with “EOS R”, the detection performance of smaller eyes and profile is improved. In addition, it can detect the eyes, face, and the whole body of animals (dogs/cats/birds) to improve the capture rate of subjects.
● Achieved the EV-6.5 low-brightness focus limit for the first time in the EOS series. Achieves highly accurate focusing even in a dark environment where it is difficult for the naked eye to see the subject.
●High-speed AF of up to approximately 0.05 seconds is achieved by optimizing the drive control of “Dual Pixel CMOS AF II” and “RF lens”.
● Uses the AF algorithm installed in the “EOS-1D X Mark III”. Comfortable shooting with “Case 1 to 4”, which are preset with “subject tracking characteristics” and “trackability against speed changes” according to the scene, and “Case A (Auto)” that automatically switches according to the subject Realized.
● The CMOS sensor reduces noise and the image engine improves noise reduction performance, achieving a standard ISO sensitivity of up to 102400 when shooting still images.
● Supports still image/video recording in the “HDR PQ” method based on human visual characteristics. HEIF (10bit) recording that was done with RAW development software is realized in the camera.
● “Face lighting correction” is newly added to the auto writing optimizer function during RAW development. When the contrast of the face is high, it is possible to automatically correct the brightness of the face.
● “Strength” is added to the “Digital Lens Optimizer” that corrects lens aberrations.
● The built-in high-definition electronic viewfinder (EVF) with approximately 100% field of view that employs an organic EL panel with approximately 3.69 million dots. By setting the display frame rate to “119.88fps (smoothness priority)”, it is easier to chase moving objects.
●For the first time in the EOS series, a correction mechanism that moves the image sensor in response to camera shake is adopted in the body. Achieves in-body image stabilization with 5 axes: horizontal rotation axis/vertical rotation axis/rotation axis/left/right/up/down. Even with a lens that does not have an image stabilizer, you can shoot comfortably from wide-angle to telephoto, depending on the combination of camera and lens.
● The world’s highest 8.0-stop image stabilization is achieved by the coordinated control of the optical image stabilization mechanism on the lens side and the in-body image stabilization mechanism. Comfortable shooting is possible even in shooting environments where camera shake is likely to occur, such as telephoto shooting and handheld shooting.
●When shooting movies, in addition to the coordinated control of the camera shake correction mechanism inside the body and lens, it is also possible to use a movie electronic IS together.
● 4K/60P video is achieved by oversampling without cropping, enabling delicate video expression with reduced moire and noise that cause image quality degradation.
● Full HD/120P high frame rate video for smooth video expression.
● When shooting 4K/Full HD, smooth AF with “Dual Pixel CMOS AF II” is possible.
● Equipped with Canon’s original Log-Gamma “Canon Log”, which has a proven track record in video production equipment “CINEMA EOS SYSTEM”. By gently suppressing the crushing of dark areas and highlight highlights, it is possible to record videos with a high degree of freedom in editing and processing after shooting.
● Supports Wi-Fi/Bluetooth(R) connection to mobile devices such as smartphones.
● Equipped with an automatic image transfer function from the camera to “image.canon”. You can automatically transfer still images to “Google Photos” or “Adobe Creative Cloud” (membership plan) via “image.canon”.
● Equipped with a shutter unit that has achieved shutter durability of 300,000 actuations. You can choose to open or close the shutter curtain when the power is off.
● A dustproof and drip-proof structure is adopted to prevent water droplets and sand dust from entering the camera. In addition, a lightweight and highly rigid polycarbonate resin is used for the exterior, achieving both reliability and mobility.
● Equipped with dual slots for SD memory cards (UHS-II compatible).
● Equipped with a multi-controller that allows intuitive AF frame selection.

> When using Mount Adapter EF-EOS R: Canon EF or EF-S lenses

I suppose there's a 1.6 crop mode when an EF-S lens is adapt-mounted?

Approx. 138 x 97.5 x 88.4mm

I think that is:
working humidity 85% or less
Dimensions (W x H x D) Approx. 138 x 97.5 x 88.4mm

No ALL-I video compression, and probably no DPAF in FF 4K recording (like the 1DX3). That's lame, but expected, since Canon will want to sell as many R5's as possible. We're still missing a lot of critical information - FPS, buffer, expected battery life, video recording modes...

So only IPB for video? And with MP4 it sounds like this will only be 8bit 420. R5 will be far superior in video over R6 then.

So in terms of photography R > R6, disapointed. I can't afford 4000€ cameras. Gonna stick to my RP with normal IS lenses. If only money wasn't to consider...

I have a question about EVFs in general, though obviously specific to the R6 at this point. Will there be a problem when shooting while wearing my Rx polarized sunglasses? Some screens, like the one on the back of my 6D, "disappear" when held in portrait mode. I didn't really think about that in relation to an EVF until just now.

I think it is probably 10-bit 4:2:2 H.265 HEVC MP4 with Canon Log just like the 1DX III
Only you don't get the ALL-I compression, only the IPB as UHS-II SD can't handle the high bitrate for 4k60p
(if they disable ALL-I for all frame rates, then it might be segmentation)

Depends on the type of photography. Sports and nature are pretty painful on my 6D shooting at 4.5 fps. The R shoots at 3 fps with tracking I believe. The larger pixels might be beneficial for my Milky Way shots too, hard to know at this point. But really the low fps on the R kill it for me (otherwise I'd be super excited for the price drop on an otherwise awesome camera).

Not exactly, the R is way too slow for my liking and a proper AF joystick is a much better use of space than that weird touch bar. Also, even with a lower resolution, the R's sensor is four year old tech, the R6's is much newer and should offer better DR and noise performance.

Exactly! My 5DIV is no race horse but the R is even slower and while I don't know if I really need 12 (or even 20!) fps something faster than what's available in these cameras is highly welcome.

Well I am very curious to see how this so called old sensor DR compares to this 20mp. If this 20mp doesn't even have better low light capability, it will be the "only video" camera of the line. But getting an R at 1500€ dropped in september as rumored hypes me much more than a 20mp 12fps (I don't do sport and wild life, or I do wild life but not birds (finding it way too overdone, idk).
I hope they went like the 5d mark II back then (launched at 2500€) for the R5. But they still think they are the king of the situation. I doubt that. Everyone around me has a sony as I am speaking. And when I told them about the R5 yesterday, they didn't even care. Weird times.

You can look up sensor reviews on the 1DX III, it does have better low-light capability than the EOS R.
Dynamic range is a bit better as well, but probably not very noticeable, the main differences are the speed, AF system and the video capabilities.

EVF resolution missing, since the LCD has less resolution compared to the R5, maybe it's similar to the EOS R
Gives me a sleepless night! I would love, if it would have the same resolution like the R5 (what was rumored all the last weeks). Anyway, this site did an excellent job in my opinion! Thank you.

They have dumbed down on the LCD, they are probably doing it on the EVF as well, having that much of a difference in resolution does not make sense from the camera's operation (the sensor will read out less pixels for the continuous view).

Also, we are still supposed to have something special left for stills, at least for the R5 but maybe for the R6 also. But anyway, for me the hype is over since the price reveal. Or my poverty reality reveal :rolleyes:
Also gonna take the Samyang 85 instead of the Canon 85 since I hoped for 1:1 macro and not 1:2, for an f2 I find it inbetween everthing... missing every purpose. Not a real Macro, not a real portrait (f2 is still ok, but not really for me). So Nothing for me :cry:

Most EVF designs are fine, although Olympus had an infamously bad one in their E-M1 and E-M5.2 that would show a dark "cross" all over the EVF when placed in landscape orientation. None of my Sony's give me trouble, though, and neither have Panasonics. It's usually the rear LCD that darkens, as you say.
