Canon EOS R6 Mark II Camera in More Detail
24.2 megapixel full-frame sensor
The EOS R6 Mark II features a Canon-designed full-frame 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, which works together with the powerful DIGIC X processor. The processor is behind many of the camera’s advanced features and provides an excellent balance between resolution, low-light performance and the ultimate shooting speed.
The new sensor offers fast readout speeds for video and groundbreaking 40fps continuous shooting in electronic shutter mode. Compared to the original EOS R6, this new sensor reduces the effect of ‘rolling shutter’, allowing the camera’s electronic shutter to be used to freeze fast-moving objects. This also facilitates oversampled 4K 60p video using the full width of the sensor, while helping to power extraordinarily quick focusing, which the R6 Mark II provides.
You also benefit from an instant in-camera 1.6x crop with a digital teleconverter, taking you closer to the action at the press of a button. This works even while your eye is at the viewfinder, creating a seamless zooming-in experience when needed.
Advanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF II with eye detection
The Canon EOS R6 II uses Canon’s state-of-the-art Dual Pixel CMOS AF II to focus and track subjects, keeping them sharp as they move across the frame. This employs deep-learning artificial intelligence, which is programmed to recognise a wider range of subjects. These now include:
- People (Eye/Face/Body)
- Vehicles (cars, motorbikes, trains and aircraft)
- Animals (dogs, cats, birds and horses).
The subject type can be chosen in the menu or set to Auto if you shoot in a range of scenarios. When detecting people or animals, the EOS R6 Mark II first looks for a subject’s eyes, and it’s now possible to specify whether the left or right eye should be given priority. If the eyes can’t be seen, the camera focuses on the face instead, and if the subject turns away for a moment, the head is tracked. If the head isn’t visible, the EOS R6 Mark II will track their body.
RAW burst mode
A pre-shooting option as part of RAW burst mode is included in the upgraded Mark II body, which captures action 0.5 seconds before the shutter-release button is pressed. This provides a great advantage when shooting unpredictable subjects and you want to capture every moment, whether photographing tennis players or toddlers.
When using high-speed SD memory cards, you can capture just over 6 seconds RAW burst mode, which shoots continuously at 30fps for up to 191 frames. All of the frames are recorded in a single RAW file, which Canon has called a roll. This is recorded as a special CR3 file, which is complete with AF tracking. Individual images can be extracted from this roll using Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software, or in camera, and saved as individual JPEG, HEIF or RAW files for editing and sharing.
Movie Servo AF ‘Detect only’ option
A new Movie Servo AF option ‘Detect only’ has been added to the EOS R6 Mark II, which is similar to ‘Face only’ feature found in the EOS C70 Cinema camera. When activated, if the subject specific in the Subject to detect menu moves out of the focus area the camera will remain at its current point of focus without refocusing on other subjects. This has practical applications, such as when ‘People’ is specified in the menu, focus will not change if a subject walks out of shot, where traditionally a camera would refocus on the background. This is often undesirable, especially if the subject is about to move back into the frame and will be out of focus.
Canon’s EOS R6 Mark II is able use digital processing to compensate for the undesirable effects of focus breathing. This is through noticeable changes in the viewing angle or magnification that happens as some lenses show significant changes in focus. Lenses which are supported after firmware updates include:
- RF 14-35mm F4 L IS USM
- RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM
- RF 24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM
- RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM
- RF 70-200
- RF 70-200mm F4 L IS USM
- RF 24mm F1.8 Macro IS STM – supports this feature without requiring a firmware update.
Focus bracketing in-camera
When you need more depth of field, the EOS R6 Mark II offers focus bracketing and depth compositing to help you achieve perfect focus throughout the frame.
A single press of the shutter-release button tells the camera to begin shooting after specifying the focus range and number of shots, which will vary focus from near to far. When this sequence of images is blended together, the result is perfect depth of field for the scene, which is ideal in a number of situations from landscape or cityscape.
This image sequence can be merged in-camera, creating a perfect ready-to-go result to share instantly. The feature can also be used as an on-location preview of what can be achieved in post-production after the shoot for the confidence that you have captured the precise shot which you need.
For macro photography depth compositing is perfect when shooting with limited depth of field. This feature also enables you to reduce time spent post-processing from multiple frames and lets you achieve quick in-camera results.
4K 60p full-width oversampled and 6K RAW video
The EOS R6 Mark II will record 4K 60p UHD using the full width of the camera sensor, with simultaneous Dual Pixel CMOS AF II focusing. Footage is created by oversampling the sensor’s 6K output, resulting in superb image quality for professional results.
The camera body is also heat efficient, allowing longer recording times of up to 610 hours, depending on ambient temperature, memory card space and battery life.
The EOS R6 Mark II outputs 6K RAW via HDMI, which can be recorded on an Atomos Ninja V+ recorder in ProRes RAW. This provides more detail as well as the ability to adjust parameters such as white balance in post-production and Full HD proxy footage can be captured internally to a memory card, catering for the needs of filmmakers who wart even higher performance.
Advanced heat management
The EOS R6 Mark II is able to capture video for longer by managing temperature rises. Advanced warning of overheating informs videographers well before shooting may need to be paused.
Low-resolution standby mode helps reduce the likelihood of overheating when the camera is on standby between takes. Display frame rate and image quality are temporarily reduced, conserving power and extending recording time.
When the pre-recording function is activated, video is continuously streamed through the camera in standby. This pre-captured footage can be captured from the 3 or 5 secs before the video record button is pressed, which is particularly handy when shooting unpredictable subjects or an unmissable one-off moment during a wedding or sporting event for example.
Webcam and live streaming UVC support
The EOS R6 Mark II can be used as a webcam on PC and Mac without having to install additional software in order to run apps such as Skype, Zoom and Teams. This plug-and-play capability is powered by industry-standard USB Video Class (UVC) and USB Audio Class (UAC) drivers that are built into Windows and MacOS operating systems.
This ensures you look your best when you need to make a great impression online, with improved image quality compared with standard computer webcams.
Video assist features
As an extremely competent video camera the Canon EOS R6 Mark II includes several video assist features to ensure brilliant results from technology shared with Canon Cinema cameras.
The EOS R6 Mark II features false colour warnings which provide instant indication of current exposure levels. Six colours, each representing a different luminance level, are overlaid on viewfinder and view screen images.
Recording emphasis and Aspect marker
When the Recording emphasis feature is turned on a blinking red frame is visible at the edges of the frame while the camera is recording video.
In addition to this, the EOS R6 Mark II includes an Aspect marker option, which acts as a guide to how footage will look when it’s been processed for different aspect ratios which is ideal when recoding even for social media. Aspect ratios include 2.35:1 Cinema Scope, vertical 9:16, 5:4, and even Instagram-friendly 1:1.
Wider selection of video exposure modes
When capturing video footage, the updated camera body offers aperture-priority (Av) and shutter-priority (Tv) exposure modes, as well as manual (M), Program (P) and 3 custom setting modes giving you more convenience and creative control for how videos are exposed.
First seen on the EOS R3, a multifunction shoe is included on the EOS R6 Mark II. This innovative technology allows a range of accessories to be used with the camera without cables and battery management. These include the Canon DM-E1D digital microphone and Tascam XLR adapter designed to record high-quality sound. You can also take advantage of the AD-P1 smartphone adapter and new multifunction shoe Speedlite flashes.
Huge lens and accessory ecosystem
The Canon mirrorless ecosystem has grown with the addition of regular and cable-free multifunction hot shoe accessories, as well as a wide range of RF lenses. You can also attach EF and EF-S lenses using Mount Adapter EF-EOS R, Control Ring Mount Adapter and EF-EOS R Mount Adapter With Variable ND Filter. This opens up endless possibilities for stills and video capture with your existing lenses.
Optional accessories include the Canon BG-R10 battery grip, GP-E2 GPS receiver (digital compass not supported), Stereo Microphone DM-E100 and many more. The camera is powered by the tried-and-tested Canon LP-E6NH Battery Pack, which offers battery life approx. 760 shots (at 23°C) with the LCD and approx. 450 shots (at 23°C) when using the EVF.
