The rumor mill on the web is once again bubbling over with new Canon products. The successor of the popular Canon EOS R6 is in the center of interest. According to the rumors, the Canon EOS R6 Mk II will have a 24MP sensor (previously 20 MP sensor). At first glance, this sounds like only a marginal increase in resolution, but when the keyword 24MP sensor is mentioned, the eye immediately falls on the 24 MP Stacked BSI sensor of the Canon EOS R3, which - especially for filmmakers - should be one of the most exciting sensors that Canon currently uses in DSLMs.

We had tested the sensor of the Canon EOS R3 here on slashCAM and had been quite impressed: Keyword minimal rolling shutter and "cine status". Here also our field test on the Canon EOS R6 as well as the corresponding test clip:
So if the Canon EOS R6 Mk II does indeed get a version of the Stacked BSI sensor from the Canon EOS R3, we&re in for a pretty exciting camera here. Other rumors speak of Canon Log 3/HDR PQ, dual SD/SDHC card slots, 4K 30p uncropped/ 4K 60p cropped, 12 fps with mechanical shutter and a barely changed form factor.
The next weeks and months should show how viable these rumors are - in any case, we&re already pretty excited. What would be important to you about a Canon EOS R6 Mk II successor? Feel free to let us know in the comments ...
