Pros and cons
Thanks to the large maximum aperture of f/1.8, you can create a soft background blur.
You capture sharp images and smooth videos by hand thanks to the 5-stops image stabilization.
The autofocus system has face, eye, and animal recognition for an accurate autofocus.
There's no internal flash to light up your pictures in the dark.
The Canon EOS R6 + RF 50mm f/1.8 STM is a full-frame mirrorless camera for professional portrait photographers. With the 50mm lens, you can take photos with a soft background blur thanks to the large maximum aperture of f/1.8. This way, the model pops out of the background. The large sensor and fast DIGIC X processor make sure your photos are clear and sharp. Dark locations aren't a problem with the 5-stops image stabilization. You can take photos and record videos by hand without any motion blur. If you use the mechanical shutter, you can capture 12 images per second. This is perfect for photographing moving images, like athletes and wild animals. In combination with the fast autofocus system that recognizes and tracks animals, your photos are sharp. The face and eye recognition make sure that the camera automatically focuses on eyes. This is useful for portrait and wedding photographers.

A very fast solid camera for people who have experience in operating cameras. For the beginner, the learning curve is too steeply different. A world of possibilities presents itself. Face recognition works phenomenally like the tracking and the in-body stabilizer is fantastic. Camera holds well and all buttons are perhaps even better operable than the EOS 5D mk4. Switching from the solid, robust 5D mk4 to this new camera takes some getting used to, but then you don't want anything else if people are usually your subject. For landscape and other still subjects I would prefer the traditional mk4.
And to think that this is only the first in the series (mark1), that promises something for the future. The 20 million pixels seems a bit small, but in practice it is sufficient for printed matter up to A3. For your own prints up to A2 size. The advantage of smaller files is of course that the storage capacity remains manageable. This camera probably goes on reportage more often than that other great camera 5D mk4.Otto Kalkhoven | 29 November 2020 | In the version: Canon EOS R6 Body | Automatically translated from Dutch

Coming from an entry-level DSLR, I'm slightly shocked at how good this camera is. My previous camera (also Canon) feels like a toy compared to this. The autofocus is insane. With focus points over 100% of the screen, focus&recompose, which made my photos always just a little less sharp, is finally a thing of the past. The touch and drag function is surprisingly useful and intuitive. I have never been able to move a focus point so quickly. There is also just a joystick. But in many cases you don't even have to move the focus point yourself, because of the face tracking and eye AF. The camera finds the eye of both humans and animals, and continues to focus on it. I shoot a lot of cats and the eye AF works just as well on that. You can also easily switch between faces/eyes in various ways. My ratio of sharp photos has increased enormously. Actually, just about all photos are sharp, and much sharper than I'm used to. If this is not the case, it is due to a too long shutter speed.
What is also impressive is low light performance. I need a flash significantly less often and the images are very clean for such low light.
The ergonomics are very nice, which I am used to from Canon, but even better.
The electronic viewfinder is fairly life-changing because you immediately see your exposure change in real time with your settings.
I find the control ring on the RF lens surprisingly useful for setting up a custom function yourself. The lens itself is very fast and I think the bokeh is nicer and more creamy than that of the EF 50mm.
And the most important thing: the quality of the photos is very high. Despite the fact that this camera has fewer megapixels than my previous one (20MP vs 24MP), the photos are so much nicer, sharper, clearer, better colors, better dynamic range, everything. Afterwards I laugh at myself a bit that I was worried about whether I would not see that 4MP less in a lower image quality. If that's what you're worried about, don't do it. Apparently there are more important things in a sensor than just the amount of MP, because the image quality of this sensor is a lot better than I'm used to from my previous sensor. It's almost not fair to compare them.
This camera really is a beast, and I'm very happy with it.JF | 24 March 2021 | In the version: Body + RF 50mm f/1.8 | Automatically translated from Dutch

Eye detection that keeps subjects in focus at all times
Special Animal Feature
No included adapter for EF lenses
After 10 years of using a canon 600D made the switch to mirrorless camera.
It takes some getting used to, but much easier to use.
After purchasing a lens adapter, you can easily use your favorite lenses.
Expensive purchase but you can use it again for quite some time afterwards!Soraya | 6 November 2020 | In the version: Canon EOS R6 Body + 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM | Automatically translated from Dutch
