Comments: 11, on the topic: Announcement: Canon EOS R6

  • Pokemon

    Is the matrix in R6 a relative of the one in 1D X mk2 / mk3?

  • Pavel Gorbunov

    I'm interested in this: does the R6 have the same “newer” anti-moir filter as in the 1 DX Mark III, or did the creators limit themselves to the “old” one?

    • Pokemon

      “The matrix in the new camera is full-frame with a resolution of 20,1 megapixels. The source says this sensor is a variation of the same sensor as Canon's flagship 1DX Mark III DSLR. Unlike the sensor in the 1DX Mark III, which uses a "high detail" low pass filter, the R6 uses a traditional low pass filter. This sensor has been modified to work in a mirrorless camera. ”
      Probably it will be a rejection, and not a 1: 1 sensor with the entire body kit as on the flagship.
      It will be interesting to see tests that worsen with respect to Units in R6.

    Canon finally released a normal camera for photographers instead of videographers. I wonder if Nikon will understand this? 90% of photographers do not need more than 20-24 megapixels, or even 16 is enough. You need the quality of these megapixels themselves at high ISO, as well as the ability to extract information from them. Nikon used to understand this and he was doing great, but after the D3s he forgot about it and the result is obvious. Now it's time to think about photographers, not megapixels. An effective stabilizer is also a huge plus, would also pay attention to super sensitive autofocus, and not just autofocus. The swivel display isn't just for video, it's great for photographers too, so that's a plus too. Two memory cards - there is nothing to say. 12 frames per second is enough for 99% of tasks. By the way, it also has an excellent 4k video, so you can sometimes shoot a video, in addition ... The protected case, as the company writes, is at the level of Canon 5D3, but it's funny, the 5D3 was very poorly protected, in fact it is a sieve, a slightly better sieve than 5D2 and a full 5D sieve, so they lie a little in disguise on this part, otherwise Canon cannot, marketers are marketers to lie professionally, since there are many fools in the world, and they will believe, even be proud. But in general, personally, I am very happy with this camera - in 5 years we will see, and maybe we will buy it, but for now let it be bought in the richest country in the world, and the most democratic - the USA, because they are given out money in batches, and then we will buy out the BU version ...
