Rumoured Canon R6 Will Have 20MP Sensor and 4K Video
Canon is rumoured to be bringing out an EOS R6 camera, which will be a more accessible younger cousin of the recently announced R5 camera.
The rumoured EOS R6, which up until now was unofficially nicknamed the “Canon EOS Rm,” has some interesting specifications such as a 20MP full-frame sensor and in-body stabilisation. It will also include 4K video at 60p, positioning it as a more affordable option to the EOS R5 – which itself boasts an impressive 8K raw video capability.
According to recently leaked specifications over at Canon Rumors, the EOS R6 looks to adopt the following specifications:
- A 20MP full-frame sensor
- In-body Image Stabilisation
- 12fps burst (mechanical)
- 20fps burst (electronic)
- 4K/60p and Full HD/120p video
- Dual card slots
- Lower resolution EVF than the R5
- Lower build quality than the R5
- No top-down screen
Whilst the Canon EOS R5 brings with it an impressive arsenal of features, it will also maintain a hefty price tag. The R6, however, will be a more accessible option for those that do not require quite so drastic capabilities. After all, 8K video is rarely something people need at the moment, and the R6 may end up being a more popular offering from Canon.
