(OUTOODR PICS) Canon r6 Photography Test in Wedding Photoshoot,Couple Photoshoot,Candid Photography & Photo Studio

Photography equipment is expensive, sometimes fragile, and always too heavy. Unfortunately, inseparable from our practice, however secondary. Techniques of perspective, approach, ethical integrity, and knowledge of the environment and fauna remain essential prerequisites for wildlife photography. But the equipment is there to make our work easier and to allow us to see in pictures the beauty that nature offers us. Good equipment helps us take good photos, but the opposite is not necessarily true. A good photographer will be able to take good pictures - with almost any equipment.

For several decades now, the SLR camera has been the best of any kind. The first film, then digital, and the SLR camera went through various evolutions, sometimes fundamental in our practice. But in recent years, a new type of camera body has appeared: the mirrorless. But what exactly is a mirrorless camera? Simply put, it's an SLR camera that has lost the mirror and the prism. It has everything like the body of an SLR, but instead of an optical viewfinder, the light of which is directed into the viewfinder by a mirror and prism system, the mirrorless has a small screen. This has several advantages, which we will explain in detail using the Canon R6 as an example.

The mirrorless camera clearly revolutionizes the practice of wildlife photography. Apart from the two or three disadvantages of losing the convenience of viewing through the SLR viewfinder, less autonomy, and perhaps less resistance to extreme climatic conditions, this evolution brings a lot of advantages.



The first advantage for me and last but not least: is the complete absence of startup noise. Long considered a major disadvantage for photographing certain noise-sensitive species, it was necessary to equip noise-suppressing covers and triggers with extreme caution. Today, there is no need for a cover, the trigger is perfectly silent thanks to the absence of a mirror and the possibility of taking pictures using the electronic shutter. This advantage is a revolution for sensitive species. As long as the rest of his practice is almost undisturbed, this option is icing on the cake!

The electronic viewfinder may put some off, me for one. I had a hard time getting used to this type of viewfinder at first because it puts a screen between the world and yourself. However, the images are clear and well-defined and the refresh rate is more than enough to capture any moment in real-time. But once you get used to the electronic viewfinder, you'll notice some major advantages: the exposure happens in real-time, so you see the picture exactly as it's taken! It allows many options to be displayed, such as a histogram, which can be particularly useful. You can also view images or enter the menu through the viewfinder. This can be useful if you want to check your photo and can't afford to emit light. Something extra: the absence of a mirror and base makes the case lighter by at least 200 grams!



Advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning have enabled manufacturers to create extremely accurate, fast, and intelligent focusing systems. Canon R6's autofocus is its strong point. It benefits from the latest generation processor that allows it to perform an inventory in less time than it takes. The main evolution is the detection of animals and their eyes! Aim at a bird and the autofocus will automatically focus on its head or eye. Target a deer, badger, cat, lynx... The R6 instantly detects the animal's eye and all you have to do is press the shutter to get a perfectly clear photo! Tracking birds in flight is perfectly executed, even when there is an obstacle between the subject and you. It is possible to lock a subject that the camera will continue to track without having to switch to AI SERVO mode. The ease of use is exceptional. After customizing the buttons and finding the way you want the case to work, you'll be amazed at its capabilities and speed. It is not infallible, sometimes you will have to use a classic collimator or focus manually (electronically assisted!). But the development that this autofocus brings is incredible!

Wildlife photography often requires equipment that works well in low light. Many species are crepuscular and the most beautiful atmosphere of the day can be found in the early morning and late evening. The Canon R6 sensor is stabilized on 5 axes. When paired with an equally stabilized lens, the light gain can reach the equivalent of 6 to 8 EV! If we add to that a clean ISO increase up to ISO 10,000 or even 12,800 and usable without too much noise up to ISO 25,600, we get a spectacular combo.



All Canon EF lenses are compatible with the R series (R, RP, R6, R5 and R3) thanks to the EF-RF reduction ring. Its use is completely transparent and no image degradation or focus speed is observed. It mainly serves for the correct distance between the sensor and the rear lens of the objective. Additionally, another advantage of using mirrorless is that it focuses directly on the sensor. No more front or back focusing problems with your favorite lenses!

Autonomy is not as bad as what we hear about mirrorless. If the box is properly configured for standby mode, the battery will easily allow you to take 400-600 photos. That's about a third less than, say, the 5D Mark IV.

I don't like to talk about gear and never will. However, it must be admitted that equipment adapted to your practice brings incomparable comfort. The mirrorless camera, despite its technology quite distant from authentic practice, brings me a little closer to nature. Silence is a rare commodity. The speed of development and ease of use, once you understand how the case works, allows you to be so fast and so efficient that the device is forgotten. It becomes an extension of his eye, a simple tool to transcribe his photographic intent and convey his emotions. The ergonomics are excellent, the focus intuitive. Extensive customization allows you to adapt the tool to your practice and not the other way around. The Canon EOS R6 is a fantastic tool!
