Canon EOS M6 Mirrorless Camera: Ultimate Review

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Today I’m going to tell you about the Canon EOS M6 mirrorless camera and why I think it’s one of the best Canon mirrorless cameras. I’ll give you a brief overview of why this Canon camera is great for video and for YouTube creators. We’ll look at features like the flip screen, Canon Dual Pixel autofocus for video, timelapse movie mode, image stabilization and many more.

I’ll then dive deeper and look at the Canon EOS M6 sensor and processor, audio options with the external mic input, Wifi and bluetooth features, lens options and much more.

What's up everyone?! I would love feedback about the Canon M6 review. Was there too much detail? Not enough? What did you like, and also, what did you not like? What would you like to see more of? Would love to know what you think, good or bad. I am grateful in advance 🙏

Whats best between canon m6 and fujifilm xt100?

AdmiralCecil says:

You can use Canon's regular DSLR APS-C and full frame lenses with adapter for this camera. Not all the EF-M lenses are for low light or higher power telephoto.

How do you connect the camera to your phone? Everything was great, just need to know how you were able to use your phone.

Chukky aka Ian says:

Love my M6, perfect for travel, walking and easy to carry in my motorcycle tank bag touring. Bought the adapter and can use all my EF lenses. For videos superb…especially mated with a Rode mic on a flash side mount.

Jump In says:

Best M6 review ever. Thanks a lot.

Ralph Jay Wallace says:

Way, way too much emphasis on video and blogging (“vlogging”)! I’m interested in how the camera handles static images or those with minimal movement. How would the camera do using the Canon 28mm f/3.5 (41mm equivalent) M-mount Macro lens? I mostly do street photography, local events, reportage, architectural detail, food, nature, trees, sky and clouds, etc. I am experienced with a wide range of digital, film and Polaroid cameras. Can use a small tabletop tripod on a flat surface or hand-held like a mini-monopod. I don’t take selfies (have a cell phone for that purpose if I need it).

Hi there! I want to buy my first ever camera and am super confused which to get. Looking to get a mirrorless camera; my options are A6000, M100, M50, M6 and Fujifilm X-A3.
I'm an absolute beginner but aiming to get to the semi-professional level. My priority is taking photos, not videos (vlogging and such). Thinking that the camera should be great for travelling (landscape and people) and everyday purposes (portrait, food, products).
I'm undecided because some, while being a great camera, has shorter battery life and/or has few compatible lens options (or has to use lens adapter). Canon cameras have lock in lens and I'm afraid it will be troublesome or inconvenient.
As for A6000, do you think it will still be relevant in the next, at least, 5 years?
Which camera would you recommend for me, or if you have any other option please let me know. Thank you so much!

great job. was looking for some walking examples. to see how the background is. i use the big ol 80D. and when walking or hiking, there is a lot o jitter with the background?????

Harred Jervin says:

Nice review, very informative, you gave the full i will start vlogging using this..thanks

DraderGaming says:

Are desk microphones such as the Blue Yeti compatible with the M6? If so, would I connect the two with an AUX cord?

And which camera would you recommend for shooting pranks from reasonable distance away – M6 vs M50 vs SL2 vs G7 X Mark II?

Doug Logan says:

Nice job…that being said, more interested in it's photographic capabilities, not video.

Alexander Cruzem says:

The only problem I have with EOS M6 is the flip screen, I can't mount a mic when the screen is up 🙁

P-Stine says:


Thanks for the video:) I noticed that the lens release button is kind of loose on my m6, doesn’t take much pressure to press on it. Do u have the same thing?

Sophia Quetua says:

I like your review. Very informative and good for comparisons. It helped me a lot when choosing what camera to buy. Keep it up! 🙂

Jacob Satria says:

eos m6 have body stabilization and image stabilization ?

Manong Jermel says:

How about the microphone?

NoZaku says:

this sold me, ive been looking at multiple different cameras with a flip-screen from the G7x to the Cybershot. Never done much with Canon but this sold me on it.

Alvin Bartolome says:

Hi there. Awesome review for the camera. I sold my DSLR system and am looking for a small everyday camera that I can bring with me to cover life events, street shooting, travel and what nots, I am a fan of 35mm (EFM 22/2) and 50mm (EFM 35/1.4) in FF, and I think this M system have it. Moreover, it ticks most of the boxes for me due to its small size, selfie screen, sufficient numbe rof control dials and buttons plus great AF, I am not into video or vlog but I think I can learn a few things, I am just having a little concern whether this M6 still holds its water considering it is now almost 3 years old or whether I should be looking to another system. Thank you for your response

Siddhesh Talokar says:

Gr8 video….
Very helpful….
Can u please let me know is there any video quality difference between Canon M6 and Canon SL2? I am really confused between the 2….is the low light performance bad in M6 if compared to SL2? Is der any downside if u compare m6 with sl2?

James J. Reid says:

Thank you.

I just upgraded from the eo-m to the m6. With the release fo the m50 the used price is very reasonable.

Trevor Summers says:

You are seriously the best camera reviewer I’ve found. I’m just getting into photography but you’ve answered questions I didn’t even know I had. Thank you!

Eirik says:

leetskil says:

Vlad P says:

I wish there's more about taking pictures with it, not just videos.

Merv Cann says:

Alanna Holens says:
