Fast & Accurate Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Phase-detection.
With the 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 analyzes 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 (APS-C) Sensor.
The EOS M6 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, the EOS M6's sensor is primed to deliver.
High-speed Continuous Shooting at up to 7.0 fps (up to 9.0 fps with AF Lock).
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.
DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100?25600.
The DIGIC 7 Image Processor powers the EOS M6 camera, providing high image quality and fast operation even in low light. When using high ISO settings, the improved noise 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.
Full HD 60p.
Whether you're creating artistic film clips or capturing special occasions, the advanced video capabilities of the EOS M6 camera can capture them in high quality. Incredibly realistic 1080p Full HD video is recorded 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 Stabilization.
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 minimize blur due to movement. These help ensure the videos you record are as sharp as possible.
Built-in Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth.
The EOS M6 camera is designed to make Wi-Fi connections fast and easy. It can exchange data with other Wi-Fi compatible Canon cameras, and transfer files directly to a compatible smart device using the Camera Connect app. It can also connect directly to Canon's Connect Station CS100 device, upload directly to various web services like CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, Facebook and YouTube, print directly to wireless Canon printers and even play back JPEG images on DLNA-compatible media players.
Built-in NFC Capability
With its built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) capability, the EOS M6 camera connects directly to compatible Android devices as well as Canon's Connect Station CS100 device. Simply touch the NFC icon located on the camera to the device to connect and enable wireless functions such as file viewing and transfer.
Built-in Bluetooth Capability
Bluetooth pairing lets you easily connect to and remotely control the EOS M6 camera from compatible smartphones using the free Canon Camera Connect app. After the initial pairing, you can set the camera to automatically connect, then control camera operations remotely. You can also establish a direct Wi-Fi connection to use your compatible smartphone as a viewfinder, and check and download previously captured photos and videos.
With the Canon Camera Connect app installed, the EOS M6 camera connects to and can be controlled by your compatible smartphone or tablet for simple remote shooting.
Intuitive Touch Screen, 3.0-inch Tilt-type LCD.
The EOS M6 camera has a large, high-resolution, 3.0" LCD monitor that tilts up 180 degrees and down 45 degrees, ideal for composing not only self portraits, but also for taking pictures at high and low angles with ease. Its touch screen is designed to be fast and easy to use for many operations, allowing accessible AF selection right on the panel.
Control & Customize with Five Functional Dials.
The EOS M6 camera features five dials so you have 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 Exposure 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 customizable 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.
Compatible with EF, EF-S and EF-M Lenses & EOS System Accessories.
To expand creative opportunities, the EOS M6 camera is compatible with both EF-M lenses designed specifically for the EOS M series of digital cameras, as well as the full line of Canon's EF and EF-S lenses. This gives you access to a huge variety of lenses from prime to wide-angle that are respected by enthusiasts and professional photographers from around the world. Other compatible EOS accessories include Speedlite flashes, Speedlite Transmitters and even Macro Ring Lites, so you can be ready to get the shot no matter the lighting conditions.
