Ever since the Canon EOS R5 and R6 launched I have been wondering how the R6 handles in the field. It’s much cheaper but has a lot of similar specs. Can it hold its own with 20 megapixels against the R5 with 45 megapixels?
In today’s video, I share with you many sample images and my experience with both cameras in the field, so you can hopefully pick which one will be the right one for you.
Do you already own one or both of them? Are you considering to buy one? Let me know in the comments?
What do you like/hate about them?
