More specifications of the EOS R6
CanonRumors is on a roll today with more specifications of the R6. The R6 is meant to be the baby brother to the R5 much like the 6D was to the 5D on the DSLR lineup, and from the specifications we now see, it's certainly rounding into form. I'm still curious why Canon chose 20MP as the sensor resolution if they are oversampling. It could very well be that they didn't want to oversample from 24MP down for processing reasons - however that raises the question on the R5 - is it's 4K oversampled then from 45MP if they couldn't do it from 24MP?
Anyways, back to the R6, the camera looks like a very capable 4K camera with excellent stills performance - albeit in a lower build quality camera body. Many features are shared between the R5 and R6, with much of the differentiation around the 20MP sensor and body.
- 20mp full-frame CMOS sensor
- 12fps mechanical and 20fps electronic.
- Oversampled 5K Video
- 4K @ 60p
- FullHD @ 120p
- Canon Log
- AF identical to the EOS R5
- No RAW video mode
- Dual SD UHS-II slots
- Head detection AF
- Animal detection AF
- Identical 5 million dot EVF as the EOS R5
- No top-down screen
- Build quality not as good as the EOS R5
- Bluetooth 4.2 (EOS R5 to get Bluetooth 5.0)
- LP-E6NH Battery (Same as the EOS R5)
- Announcement July 9, 2020
- Under $2500 USD (Rumored)
In this rumor, we also find something else out about the R5 - while it has been speculated that the R5 would have the 5 million dot EVF, no one had rumored or reported on that. It's not mentioned in the R6 specifications that it has eye AF, I suspect there may be a translation issue, and "head detection" AF actually means head and eye detection, but we'll wait and see if we hear more on that.
