5 REASONS WHY I UPGRADED TO THE CANON R6
I got the Canon R6!
I really am a nerd when it comes to technology and I can spend days looking at reviews and comparisons. When I invest in new gear, I thoroughly do my research. Even though my current camera, the Canon 6D Mark 2, is not that old at all, I already started to run into its limits. The camera is still fine but I decided to switch to the technology of the future.
The points why I chose the canon R6
And finally, what really is a game-changer for me is that it has an eye-tracking focus. So it follows the eye of the horse or the dog. I tested it right away and where there used to be 60 of the 100 pictures sharp on the eye, there are now more than 90 of the 100 pictures sharp.
Here I took some comparison photos between the Canon R6 and Canon 6DMii. In every case the top photo is the Canon 6DMii and bottom is Canon R6.
Firstly I wanted to see a comparison with backlight. To see how good the dynamic range is. It is a slight difference but you can see more details in het highlights and shadows on the plants on the R6
I jumped straight to higher ISO because on low ISO levels both cameras perform great. On ISO 1600 you can start seeing the noise in the background. Nothing to bad though.
The next picture are taken on ISO 6400. I never reach these levels of ISO but I was surprised that the R6 quality is still workable. There is noise but it is a very soft, monochrome noise. Compared to the Canon 6DMii where you see a lot of color noise.
Lastly I took the same pictures as above and bumped up the shadows to +100 to see the dynamic range again. Here you can clearly see the difference in quality and noise performance.
All in all, I am very satisfied with the Canon R6! Let me know what camera you have and what you think of it! If you want to see the pictures for yourself you can download them here:
