The next Canon camera is ready for launch: EOS R6 Mark II

The Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 have been around for two years, and Canon thinks it is time to launch a successor to the EOS R6. The Canon EOS R6 Mark II specifications have been leaked and look modest.

In our piece about the Canon EOS R8, which would sit just below the current Canon EOS R6, we said that we heard another Canon full frame camera will launch this year. This could possibly be the Canon EOS R6 Mark II.

Leaked specifications Canon EOS R6 Mark II

  • Full frame 24MP CMOS sensor
  • In-body image stabilization
  • Film capabilities up to 4K 60fps with Canon Log 3 / HDR PQ
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • Continuous shooting 12fps with mechanical shutter
  • Dual SD/SDHC card slots

Where is the innovation?

Looking at these specifications, we wonder where the innovation will take place. The EOS R6 currently has a 20.1MP CMOS sensor, 4K 60fps film capabilities, 5-axis image stabilization and Dual Pixel CMOS AF II with body, animal, eye, and face detection.

The sensor improves by 4 megapixels, and it could be that the same sensor as that of the Canon EOS R3 is used. This concerns the full-frame 24.1MP BSI CMOS sensor, which you can use to film in 6K RAW, 12-bit.

The right price

We expect Canon to only release a successor when it actually has some technological improvements. We can only judge this camera when we know more about the exact details of the sensor, processor and other features. The price is also important. It should definitely stay below £2200 to justify certain features.


So far, these have been rumours picked up by the well trusted website of Canon Rumors. The specifications known so far are most likely correct. However, a lot is still unknown. We expect to hear more soon, including price and an exact release date.
