The electronic viewfinder of EOS R5 has 5.76 million pixels, and the EVF of EOS R6 is 3.69 million pixels. In addition, the screen of Canon EOS R5 is 2.1 million pixels, and the screen of R6 is 1.62 million pixels.
Dual card slot design: Both cameras use a dual card slot design, based on Canon EOS R5 The video recording specifications are higher, and the requirements for memory cards are also higher. Therefore, the dual card slot of Canon EOS R5 is the configuration of CFExpress and SD card, and Canon EOS R6 is more friendly to the people, it is the design of dual SD card slot.
Pixel and high sense: EOS R5 and R6 are matched with each other. Canon EOS R5 is a high-pixel model with 45 million effective pixels, which can reach a native sensitivity of 51200, which is very suitable for commercial photographers and needs Studio photography enthusiasts. In contrast, Canon EOS R6 is more inclined to take the high sense route, with 20.1 million effective pixels, which can reach a native sensitivity of 102,400.
low light focus: both have Excellent low-light focusing function, only very small differences in parameters. Canon EOS R5 can achieve the low-light focusing of EV-6, and Canon EOS R6 performs slightly better than R5, and can achieve focusing under EV -6.5 conditions.
Video recording specifications: In terms of video shooting performance, Canon EOS R5 is undoubtedly the strongest at the moment. The CFExpress memory card can record 8K RAW internally, 4:2:2 10 bit, and also supports C-log gamma curve. Canon EOS R5 also supports recording 4K video at a high frame rate of 120p, which is currently the only camera that supports 120P upgrading at 4K. In contrast, Canon EOS R6 supports recording up to 4K/60p video.
03 What users are Canon EOS R5 and R6 suitable for?
Generally speaking, Canon EOS R5 and R6 have excellent dynamic continuous shooting performance, which are very suitable for sports and news photographers. When used, the bird recognition function has been added, which will definitely attract photographers who like to “shoot birds” and photograph animals.
Comparing the two machines, the biggest difference between Canon EOS R5 and R6 is the difference in video recording performance and pixels. Canon EOS R5 is by far the most powerful mirrorless camera. It has the strongest video shooting performance among civilian cameras, and is very suitable for professional video teams. Moreover, Canon EOS R5, as a 45 million high-pixel model, is bound to be preferred by some professional landscape photographers. Compared with EOS R5, EOS R6 is a more people-friendly machine.
