The addition of the Canon M6 to the Canon EOS M series offers photographers another exciting alternative to heavier DSLR cameras. The new Canon EOS M6 Body features a 24-megapixel CMOS sensor delivering stunning image quality with true colour rendition and sharp detail. An ISO range of up to 25,600 ensures you will be able to capture any action, even in very low lighting conditions. With a powerful DIGIC 7 processor onboard, you can be sure to capture images with low digital noise even at high ISO settings. The Canon EOS M6 is one of the best mirrorless cameras for sale on the market today. If you were looking to buy a Canon EOS M camera, we recommend you add this one to your kit.
Canon EOS M Series Dual-pixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. AF Technology
With the Canon EOS M6 camera’s fast and accurate Dual Pixel CMOS AF, there’s virtually no wait when capturing action-packed moments. This highly advanced technology is equipped with advanced multi-pixel phase-detection that instantly analyses the phase of select light wavelengths. By calculating the difference, the EOS M6 determines how to adjust the lens so the image is in focus. Available when using Live View on the LCD touchscreen, Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure your results are sharp, keeps the time it takes to lock focus onto your subject to a minimum and smoothly maintains focus where you want it, even if your subject is in motion, for both photos and videos.
24.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor
The Canon EOS M6 mirrorless camera features a 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) sensor capable of capturing large image and movie files that are suitable for enlargements with sufficient resolution for significant trimming. Whether making poster-sized prints, zooming in on a particular detail or making Full HD movies, this mirrorless camera's sensor is primed to deliver.
DIGIC 7 Image Processor
The DIGIC 7 Image Processor powers this Canon EOS M system camera, providing high image quality and fast operation even in low light. When using high ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)settings, the improved noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. reduction processing helps keep the image sharp and detailed in virtually any lighting situation. Enhanced tracking and detection capabilities help keep subjects clear and in focus throughout the action, with improved face tracking so your friend or family member remains the subject of the photo. Powerful all around, the DIGIC 7 Image Processor helps ensure your photos and videos look sharp and lifelike with minimal unwanted noise or grain.
High-speed continuous shooting at up to 7 fps
To help you get multiple images of a fast-moving subject and ensure you capture the moment you want, the EOS M6 camera is capable of taking up to 7.0 frames per second (up to 9.0 fps with AF Lock). Whether you’re capturing an athlete scoring a goal or a toddler running after bubbles, the EOS M6 can take the shot and stay locked on thanks to its DIGIC 7 Image Processor.
Full HD 60p
Whether you’re creating artistic film clips or capturing special occasions, the advanced video capabilities of the Canon EOS M6 camera can capture them in high quality. This Canon EOS M system camera records incredibly realistic 1080p Full HD video at up to 60p with stereo sound in convenient MP4 format. Video is smooth and richly detailed even when played back on a large-screen HDTV via the camera’s HDMI output. The MP4 format’s small file size lets you fit more on a single memory card, and helps make downloading and sharing quick and easy.
Combination IS with 5-axis Image Stabilisation
Even when you hold the camera as steady as you can, some unintentional shaking is possible. To counter this, the EOS M6 camera features Combination IS, which uses the camera’s Digital IS with a compatible lens’s Optical IS to help lessen the chance of blur due to camera shake. The EOS M6 also features 5-axis Digital Image Stabilization* when recording video, which digitally helps to minimise blur due to movement. These help ensure the videos you record are as sharp as possible.

Intuitive Touch Screen, 3-inch Tilt-type LCD
This Canon EOS M series camera has a large, high-resolution, 3.0" LCD monitor that tilts up 180° and down 45°, ideal for composing not only self-portraits, but also for taking pictures at high and low angles with ease. Its touchscreen is designed to be fast and easy to use for many operations, allowing accessible AF selection right on the panel.
Control and Customise with Five Functional Dials
Five dials ensure fast access to your photo settings. The Mode Dial lets you switch quickly to the picture mode that best matches what you’re shooting. The ExposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. Compensation Dial allows fine-tuning of the overall brightness of the image to match your creative intent. The ergonomically positioned Quick Control and Main Dials, along with the comfortably-placed Controller Wheel on the back, are all customisable so the settings you use most are conveniently at your fingertips. A lever-type power switch makes turning the camera on and off as easy as flicking your thumb, keeping it at the ready to capture that next amazing photo, or securely off so the battery doesn’t drain.
