Canon EOS M6 review


The EOS M6 reaffirms Canon's commitment to enthusiast-level mirrorless cameras.

Canon EOS M6 II initial review: What's new and how it compares


The EOS M6 Mark II renews Canon's commitment to making small, enthusiast-friendly APS-C mirrorless cameras. With 4K video, 30 fps Raw bursts and additional controls, it's a big step forward from its predecessor. And perhaps more interesting than the...

Canon EOS M6


Canon's mirrorless cameras are getting better, but the EOS M6 still can't quite measure up to some competitors.

24MP image sensor. 9.1fps burst capture. Tilting touch LCD. Wi-Fi. Compact. Add-on EVF available.

Video tops out at 1080p. Focus can struggle in dim light.

Canon's current generation of mirrorless cameras deliver serious improvements compared with earlier efforts, but they still have some room for improvement. The EOS M6 is solidly built and compact, with appropriately sized lenses to go along with it....

For the EOS M6, Canon strips down the M5


This cut-price version of Canon's flagship mirrorless should probably be a little cheaper.

Canon EOS M6 review: Canon's best mirrorless yet, but is that good enough?


Buy the M6 without trying any other cameras out there and you'll be more than happy. But if you play with the competition then you'll see the M6 can't

Small scale ; Good build quality ; Capable autofocus ; Decent tilt-angle touchscreen control along with physical dials

Expensive without bettering the competition ; Lacks autofocus finery like its nearest competition ; No 4K video smarts

The Canon EOS M6 is as much a success as it is a conundrum: it's well built, easy to control and works well thanks to that tilt-angle touchscreen and combination of physical dials. In that regard this is Canon aligning its mirrorless camera into its...

Canon EOS M6 review


Mid-range marvel?

Plenty of direct control ; Compact and lightweight ; Very good autofocus system ; Great operational speeds

Better build quality expected at this level ; No integrated viewfinder ; No 4K video recording ; No electronic shutter option

The Canon EOS M6 isn't quite specified up to the standard we’d expect for a camera with such a price tag, but it's a sound all-round performer and perfectly good choice for EOS M and EOS M10 users looking for something a little more powerful.

Canon EOS M6 Review


If you are looking for an extremely high image quality to camera size ratio, the Canon EOS M6 may have your name on it. While the M6 is a tiny camera, it gives up nothing in terms of image quality to any of Canon's other current APS-C sensor format EOS...

Canon EOS M6 Mark II review: Re-coining the term “bridge camera”


Halfway between amateur and pro, halfway between stills and video, it's a great little machine for producing a little bit of everything

Good images ; Competent video mode ; Good handling and body controls

Not cheap

It handles really nicely and we’ve no complaints about image quality – for a very high-resolution APS-C camera this is about as good as it gets. Fine art photographers will of course find better quality elsewhere, but you’ll upset the Venn diagram –...
