My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….

If you want a little spoiler alert before watching…..

I LOVED IT!!!!

  • It’s SHARP!
  • It’s FAST!
  • It’s a dream for someone who loves amazing composition!
  • It’s amazing in LOW LIGHT (even after a major mistake I made…. watch the video to hear what I did!)
  • I will NEVER FOCUS & RECOMPOSE again!!!
  • I don’t need NEW LENSES! (And my old lenses seem brand new again!)

 

For those worried about the R6 and the lower megapixels and thinking that you need to spend more for the R5 (despite many of its features being more beneficial to videographers)… take a look at this….

 

 

 

First of all… how about that eye focus?! What a dream.

Also, notice how zoomed in that image of the bride’s face is! You would have to zoom in even further to begin to see pixelation!

Now, if I was in an industry where I needed my work to be printed larger than life-size regularly, I would seriously consider whether the R5 would suit me better. However, that’s not my reality!

So, after looking over the details and specs of both camera bodies, it was clear that the R6 was all that I needed and after photographing a full wedding day, I can honestly say that that’s true! The R6 was the best choice for us! It’s fast, the focus is incredible, my old Canon lenses work so well and I don’t even notice the adaptor.  I made sure that I explained in this video what was challenging for me and what was exciting for me photographing a full wedding day with a brand new camera!
