Canon EOS M6 review: Canon's best mirrorless yet, but is that good enough?


Buy the M6 without trying any other cameras out there and you'll be more than happy. But if you play with the competition then you'll see the M6 can't

Small scale ; Good build quality ; Capable autofocus ; Decent tilt-angle touchscreen control along with physical dials

Expensive without bettering the competition ; Lacks autofocus finery like its nearest competition ; No 4K video smarts

The Canon EOS M6 is as much a success as it is a conundrum: it's well built, easy to control and works well thanks to that tilt-angle touchscreen and combination of physical dials. In that regard this is Canon aligning its mirrorless camera into its...

Canon EOS M6 review


Mid-range marvel?

Plenty of direct control ; Compact and lightweight ; Very good autofocus system ; Great operational speeds

Better build quality expected at this level ; No integrated viewfinder ; No 4K video recording ; No electronic shutter option

The Canon EOS M6 isn't quite specified up to the standard we’d expect for a camera with such a price tag, but it's a sound all-round performer and perfectly good choice for EOS M and EOS M10 users looking for something a little more powerful.

Canon EOS M6 review: A fine compact CSC


Classy and compact, the Canon EOS M6 is a solid choice but it's not cheap.

Superb image quality ; Small and stylish ; Lots of tactile controls

Expensive ; No 4K video

So at current prices and against the existing competition the Canon EOS M6 is a safe bet but doesn’t quite do enough to warrant a recommendation.

Enhancing their line-up in the M series, Canon has just released the Canon EOS M6 compact system camera (CSC). With some slight changes in design, making it look less like a DSLR, it has a fast autofocus and is easy to use. We tested this latest...

Canon EOS M6 Review


We review the Canon EOS M6 - Canon's latest 24mp mirrorless camera, with 9fps continuous shooting and a compact, and connected camera body.

Almost all of the competition has a built-in EVF, making the EOS M6 not feel like particularly good value for money at its current price. A number of competitors also offer 4K video recording. However, if you're looking for a compact camera to...

Canon EOS M6 II initial review: What's new and how it compares


The EOS M6 Mark II renews Canon's commitment to making small, enthusiast-friendly APS-C mirrorless cameras. With 4K video, 30 fps Raw bursts and additional controls, it's a big step forward from its predecessor. And perhaps more interesting than the...

Canon EOS M6


Canon's mirrorless cameras are getting better, but the EOS M6 still can't quite measure up to some competitors.

24MP image sensor. 9.1fps burst capture. Tilting touch LCD. Wi-Fi. Compact. Add-on EVF available.

Video tops out at 1080p. Focus can struggle in dim light.

Canon's current generation of mirrorless cameras deliver serious improvements compared with earlier efforts, but they still have some room for improvement. The EOS M6 is solidly built and compact, with appropriately sized lenses to go along with it....

For the EOS M6, Canon strips down the M5


This cut-price version of Canon's flagship mirrorless should probably be a little cheaper.
