Powerful image stabilisation for new ways of shooting
The Canon EOS R6 features a five-axis In Body Image Stabilizer (Abbreviation: IBIS) that provides protection from camera shake when shooting with any lens mounted on the camera. The sensor provides roll, X-Y and pitch-yaw correction, so all EF and RF lenses benefit from this new 5-axis correction for film-makers and photographers alike. However, when a compatible IS-equipped RF lens is fitted, the camera and lens stabilisation systems combine, compensating for pitch-yaw movement together and creating an intelligent image stabilisation system that delivers new levels of image performance.
The RF mount features a wide diameter, allowing the sensor inside the EOS R6 to move further within the image circle produced by the lens. As a result, certain lenses without optical IS can take advantage of the up-to 8 stop system.
When using RF lenses with Image Stabilizer, the in-body Image Stabilizer communicates in real-time using high-speed mount communication to collaborate and effectively correct camera shake including breathing, walking or simply holding the camera. Correcting for low frequency and high frequency movement in this way gives new levels of stability, and can produce up to an incredible 8-stop advantage.
