Following up on their enthusiast-oriented mirrorless camera, the EOS M5, Canon has introduced a similar and slightly more affordable mirrorless camera, the Canon EOS M6, which is actually the successor to the M3. In many ways, the M6 and M5 cameras are the most alike, especially on the inside, but they do differ in several ways. Letu2019s take a look at what the Canon M6 has to offer.
Smaller than the M5 but no built-in electronic viewfinder
One of the biggest differences between the M5 and the new M6 is that the latter does not have a built-in electronic viewfinder. The M5 was the first Canon mirrorless camera to offer a built-in EVF, but the M6 returns to the series’ roots and opts to go without one. Although, like some prior M cameras, you can attach an optional electronic viewfinder accessory to the camera’s hot shoe. The M6 is compatible with the Canon EVF-DC1 viewfinder attachment and Canon has also introduced a new EVF-DC2 (pricing not yet available) which has the same number of dots (2.36 million) as its predecessor.
There are a handful of other differences between the M6 camera body and the M5. The Canon M6 employs a 3-inch LCD display rather than the 3.2-inch LCD found on the M5, although they are both tilting touchscreen displays. The tilting display on the M6 can tilt 180u00b0 up and 45u00b0 down. The EOS M6 display has a lower resolution as well, offering 1,040,000 dots versus the 1,620,000 dots found on the M5’s slightly larger display. Further, when looking at the top of the camera, the M5 has a dedicated mode dial on the left whereas the M6 moves it to the right side of the camera next to the exposure compensation dial. The Canon M6 still has a dedicated dial like the M5 does, although on the M6 it is located underneath the exposure compensation dial. On the back of the camera, the button layout is identical for the two cameras.
Besides these few differences, the cameras look very similar; both cameras share an SLR-like style and enthusiast-oriented control layout. When it comes to dimensions, the M6 is 4.4 x 2.7 x 1.8 inches (112.0 x 68.0 x 44.5 millimeters) and it weighs 13.8 ounces (390 grams) with a battery and memory card. The M6 then is smaller than the M5 in each dimension, especially regarding height thanks to the lack of built-in EVF.

The Canon M6 pairs a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor u0096which has a 1.6x focal length multiplier (like all APS-C sensors found in Canon cameras) u0096with a DIGIC 7 processor, both of which is shares with the M5. The Canon EOS M6 offers a native ISO range of 100-25,600 and includes an Auto ISO feature (the ISO range in Auto ISO is 100-6400).
