Canon EOS R6 Mark II

The Canon EOS R6 Mark II succeeds the first generation R6 after less than two and a half years - and in a way even knocks the EOS R3 off its throne. The 20-megapixel sensor of the first EOS R6 is now a thing of the past and is replaced by the defacto industry standard with 24 megapixels. Thanks to a faster readout speed with reduced rolling shutter effect and advantages in photo and video recording.

Although the image sensor is not a stacked BSI sensor like in the EOS R3, Canon can still get 4K video with up to 60 fps without an additional crop factor, 6K RAW video via HDMI as well as a further improved image stabilization with up to eight stops longer exposure times. And last but not least: A blazing fast continuous shooting mode!

The DIGIC X image processor continues to provide the necessary speed, but in a more energy-saving new version. The Canon EOS R6 Mark II can take an impressive 40 fps in full resolution, quality (RAW), including autofocus and automatic exposure. However, only as long as the camera can write to the internal image buffer.

Which memory cards for the Canon EOS R6 Mark II?

Consequently, we do not recommend saving on SD memory cards, although it does not have to be the most expensive model. SD memory cards with UHS-II interface are not mandatory, but absolutely advisable. Depending on the file size of the RAW and/or JPEG images, the camera achieves well over 200 MB/s write speed.

If you want or need to give the Canon EOS R6 Mark II a bit more endurance for longer bursts, you can use C-RAW instead of standard RAW. Apart from extreme post-processing, hardly any differences can be noticed visually, while the number of fast continuous pictures almost doubles.

SD cards with the video speed class V60 are sufficient for all available video formats and maximum quality settings; they are marked with a badge.
