Canon EOS R6 Achieves an Overall DxOMark Sensor Score of 90 Points

DxOMark published the Canon EOS R6 sensor review and test results. Finally they have completed their tests and review of 20MP sensor inside the Canon EOS R6 full frame mirrorless camera ($2,499). As a result the Canon EOS R6 achieves an outstanding overall score of 90 points, with a combination of 24.2 bits color depth, 14.3 EV dynamic range, and 3394 ISO low-light.

From DXOMark Conclusion:

Canon’s decision to launch the EOS R6 alongside the more intriguing EOS R5 may have kept the former out of the limelight somewhat, but it’s a highly capable camera with competitive specifications. Its body stabilization, super-fast burst rates, solid video specs, and useful dual-pixel AF II all add up to a very well-rounded offering.

While the 20 MP sensor may seem an odd choice, this is a variant of the one found in the flagship EOS-1D X Mark III, and the results are practically identical. It performs well across the board with excellent dynamic range at all ISOs. Add to that the sensor’s good color and low noise, and the Canon EOS R6 looks set to be a firm favorite among a wide range of photographers who work across many different genres.
