Canon's growing range of EOS R System mirrorless cameras give photographers and content creators more choice than ever. But at the same time, the differences between models can seem less clear-cut.
Take two full-frame models in the mid-to-pro range, the Canon EOS R8 and the Canon EOS R6 Mark II. Compare the headline specifications of the two cameras – megapixels, autofocus, video capabilities, continuous shooting speed – and there seems to be little to separate them. Dig deeper, however, and you'll find some key distinctions that make the EOS R6 Mark II a better choice for dedicated photographers and content creators who want best-in-category performance for all genres, and some that make the EOS R8 a better choice for photography enthusiasts who want a lightweight, full-frame hybrid camera with advanced video capabilities and regard artistic results as the priority, more important than shooting speed or a list of pro photo features.
So what are the main differences and similarities between the EOS R8 and the EOS R6 Mark II? We draw on the detailed knowledge of Canon Europe Product Marketing Specialist Tibor Szövetes and Product Marketing Manager John Maurice to help you decide which camera best suits your needs.
