COMPARE THE EOS R5 vs EOS R6

When deciding which camera is best, you want to make sure you make the correct decision. For the best wedding, portrait, action, sports and street photography, the EOS R5 and EOS R6 should be at the top of your list. Next up in our comparison series, Canon experts have created a Canon EOS R6 vs EOS R5 comparison guide. A must-read for anyone looking for their new camera.

Canon EOS R5 vs EOS R6 Summary


Comparing the Canon mirrorless EOS R5 vs EOS R6 is difficult because they both include everything you need to take your photography to the next level. For professional photographers and videographers who specialize in everyday, wedding, portraits and street, the EOS R5 has everything you need. A 45 MP full-frame sensor, 8K video, more controls and a larger touchscreen means you can produce the high-quality content that your skills deserve. The EOS R6 is great for any serious enthusiast looking to move into professional photography. It can deliver more photos in continuous burst mode than the EOS R5, making it well suited to sports and action, while the lower megapixels, higher ISO and higher EV value make it better for use in low light. Don’t worry, whichever camera you choose, you can still make the most of AI-based autofocus, 5-axis in-body IS (up to 8 with the right lens) for handheld photography and a DIGIC X Image Processor for fast image processing.
