The Canon EOS R6 Mark II features improved resolution compared to its predecessor. A Canon-developed 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approx. 24.2 effective megapixels enables the camera to capture sharp and detailed images, even in low-light scenarios. Regardless of conditions — whether day or night, indoor or outdoor — dark portions of the image, even at high ISO speeds and increased sensitivity, are rendered with low noise.
Stop Motion Animation Firmware
This version of the EOS R6 Mark II features pre-installed Stop Motion Animation firmware to improve the camera's ability to be used for advanced stop motion applications and to be used in conjunction with specialized software, like Dragonframe.
Live view is a critical tool for stop motion recording and this firmware upgrades the camera's live resolution to 1920 x 1280 (compared to 940 x 640 of standard models) for larger playback that's easier to spot subtle changes in focus and finer details on small subjects.
USB manual focus peaking provides the benefits of focus peaking while shooting tethered via USB and working in the Stop Motion mode in the menu. This offers the benefits of programmable remote focus adjustment without the need of auxiliary focus motors.
When using native Canon RF lenses, a Focus Position Memory feature can be used for more accurate and repeatable focus adjustment via computer control with Dragonforce software.
The aperture value can be set and maintained with the Aperture Lock function in Dragonforce, which gives finer control and helps to prevent any aperture-based flickering.
HDMI output is maintained and can be toggled on and off from the camera's menu; this maintains the ability to work with external monitors even while working in Stop Motion mode.
DIGIC X Image Processor
A powerful DIGIC X Image Processor enables high-performance operation and coordination of processes such as Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, Image Stabilization, image processing, and video functionality. The DIGIC X Image Processor helps ensure your photos and videos look sharp and maintain high-resolution with minimal noise or grain.
High-Speed Continuous Shooting
For the first time among full-frame Canon EOS cameras, the EOS R6 Mark II introduces RAW Burst Mode1 at up to 30 fps. By turning on RAW Burst Mode’s pre-shooting, shooting can start slightly before (about 0.5 seconds earlier) the shutter button is fully pressed. Coupled with high-speed continuous shooting at speeds of up to 12 fps with mechanical shutter, and up to 40 fps using electronic (silent) shutter, the camera can capture the split-second details between a subject’s movements. This is great for dynamic action photos such as athletes, animals, and vehicles in motion or even capturing momentary changes in facial expressions for portraits.
Blazing Fast Autofocus
The highly responsive Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system covers up to approximately 100% x 100% of the picture area, breaking the image into up to 1,053 automatically-selected AF zones during Whole Area AF. The result is outstanding AF coverage, and the compositional freedom to focus sharply on a subject nearly anywhere in the frame.
Highly Accurate Subject Detection
Developed using Deep Learning Technology, horses, trains, and airplanes are newly detectable, in addition to conventional subjects like people, animals including dogs, cats and birds, and vehicles — cars and motorcycles — especially in a motorsports environment.2,3 For more ease of use, Auto mode is now available, in which the camera automatically selects the type of subject without the need to switch the Subject Detection setting in the menu.
Head, Face, and Eye Detection
Even in situations where many cameras may struggle to detect a subject, the EOS R6 Mark II can locate and focus upon a person’s head, face, or eye when the Subject Detection menu is set to People, allowing more ease of use, fast acquisition of your subject, and improvements to accuracy when capturing videos or still images. Additional control is now available for detecting the subject’s left or right eye – which can be also programmed to a Custom Button making it easy to focus on the preferred eye in the moment.
The EOS R6 Mark II can effectively track the whole body, face, or eye of cats, dogs, birds, and now horses, for speed and precision — regardless of the animal’s size, posture, or orientation of the face.
Optimized for Video
With ample video recording features such as 6K oversampled uncropped 4K movie at up to 60 fps, Full-HD High-frame rate movie recording at up to 180 fps4, and AF tracking, the EOS R6 Mark II can meet the needs of hobbyists and experienced video content creators alike.
Continuous Movie Recording That Exceeds 30 Minutes
The EOS R6 Mark II can continuously record Full-HD video for up to 6 hours, allowing you to set up your video and keep your project rolling without worrying about it stopping.5 You’ll also be able to continuously record Full-HD 179.82p up to 60 minutes or more, and 4K59.94p up to 50 minutes or more.
Features for Advanced Creators
Canon Log 3, HDR PQ, in-camera Full-HD proxy recording, and 6K 59.94p RAW data output to an external storage device6 provides the image quality to support various production purposes.
Focus breathing correction (with compatible Canon RF lenses) automatically compensates for changes in the angle of view caused by focus operations during movie recording.
Simultaneous recording of movies and stills to dual UHS-II SD card slots enables a backup to be created, so you can shoot with confidence.
In-body Image Stabilizer
Equipped with movie digital IS and 5-axis in-body IS, the EOS R6 Mark II enables smooth movie shooting with less camera-shake blur. With up to 8 stops of shake correction with Coordinated IS — combining In-body Image Stabilization, and optical Image Stabilization in certain Canon RF lenses — the camera makes handheld shooting easier at slower shutter speeds and in low-light situations.8 To counter large, low-frequency camera movements, such as recording while walking, there’s also electronic Movie Digital IS, which can be independently activated.
Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
Featuring a 3.0-inch, 1.62 million dot Clear View LCD II Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD, the EOS R6 Mark II makes it easy to compose and shoot from virtually any angle.
0.5-inch OLED EVF with Approx. 3.69 Million Dots
A high-precision 0.5-inch OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) EVF with approx. 3.69 million dots and a 23mm eyepoint displays a bright image and extensive shooting information. The EOS R6 Mark II’s EVF supports up to a 120 fps refresh rate and has been designed to provide a bright, sharp and colorful 100% view of the subject at hand. There’s also an Optical Viewfinder (OVF) Simulation setting, which provides a higher dynamic range viewfinder image for superior viewing in harsh, contrasty lighting situations.
Wired and Wireless Communications
The EOS R6 Mark II supports both wired and wireless connections to your smartphone via its USB Type-C9 port, built-in Wi-Fi®, and Bluetooth® technology, making it easy to upload and share movies and photos to your favorite social networks.
Built-in Bluetooth® Capability
Bluetooth® pairing helps you connect the camera to compatible smart devices using the free Canon Camera Connect app. This low-energy wireless connection helps preserve battery life, while providing remote control of the camera. It also sends continuously updated GPS location data from your phone, letting you geotag what you've captured so you know precisely where you captured the photo.
New to the EOS R6 Mark II is the ability to connect the camera to a computer or smartphone via USB-C.9 All Canon Camera Connect app features that can be used with Wi-Fi are now available when the camera and smartphone are connected via USB, using a compatible cable for your device.
UVC/UAC compatibility allows the EOS R6 Mark II to be used as a web camera and stream live video in Full HD, without additional computer software, to applications such as Zoom™, Microsoft Teams™, Skype™, and similar on-line meeting software.9 Thanks to the full-frame CMOS sensor, you’ll be able to distribute clear live video images with low noise during remote conferences or livestreaming content.
