Canon EOS R6 Photos Leaked: Joystick, Normal Mode Dial, No Touch Bar

Photography Gear

The Canon leaks are coming hard and fast now that the official product launch is less than 48 hours away. Yesterday we got a peek at the various 8K modes of the EOS R5 and the new 600mm and 800mm f/11 lenses; today, we get our first leaked product photos of the more affordable EOS R6.

The photos first appeared on Nokishita last night, and as you can see, this is a big departure from the first EOS R. You won’t get a top-mounted LCD, a touch-bar, or the fancy (read: annoying) digital mode dial. Instead, you get a good old-fashioned joy stick, a regular mode dial, and a more robust rear selection wheel that’s reminiscent of Canon’s higher-end DSLRs.

Here’s a closer look at the leaked images compared to similar product photos of the current Canon EOS R:

As a reminder, the most recent reports claim that the Canon EOS R6 will feature a 20MP full-frame CMOS sensor, IBIS, 12fps mechanical/20fps electronic maximum shooting speed, dual SD card slots, oversampled 5K, 4K/60p and 1080/120p video recording, and an AF system identical to the more advanced EOS R5.

You can see a full list of the reliable leaked specs over on Canon Rumors.

The camera is expected to come in around $2,500, although that bit isn’t confirmed just yet. Not that you’ll have to wait long for confirmation; the Canon EOS R6 is expected to launch two days from on, during Canon’s “Virtual Product Launch” on July 9th at 8AM Eastern Time.
