Whether you’re shooting a dancer at the top of their jump, or a bird of prey making a kill, such incredible frame rates give you more choice over which image to select, and more chance of capturing the perfect moment. And, when you need it, a 12fps1 mechanical shutter is available too.

Controls where you need them

The EOS R6 isn’t just fast on the inside; it’s designed to be quick and responsive on the outside too. Controls fall exactly where you expect them to be and ergonomic features like an AF joystick and rear control dials let you make adjustments instinctively, while keeping your eyes on your subject.

Anti Flicker technology


Our acclaimed Anti Flicker technology is also present, which eliminates changing exposures under flickering artificial light by timing each shot to coincide with peak brightness.
