The unpredictable nature of environmental portraits demands a camera as versatile as possible. The Canon EOS R6, with its weather-sealed body, is designed to go anywhere you need to get the shot. Its In-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS) offers up to 8-stops of stabilisation for crisp, blur-free images when you're shooting handheld, while its large, ultra-light-sensitive full-frame sensor and wide ISO range enable perfectly lit portraits in unpredictable and challenging lighting conditions. What's more, with advanced eye detection and tracking, plus autofocusing down to -6.5EV, the EOS R6 ensures that whatever time it is, your subject will always be in focus. And with a 20fps burst rate, you'll never miss a natural expression, no matter how fleeting.
The same characteristics that make the Canon RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM suitable for family portraits also make it a good choice for environmental portraits. Weighing in at just 270g, it'll go anywhere with you and its 5-stops of optical IS and that wide maximum aperture are designed to help you express your creativity whatever the lighting conditions, enabling you to capture full-body shots filled with context and interest. The focal length also means this lens doubles as a fantastic vlogging lens.
Whatever subject you're shooting, from cats to cousins, mothers to models, having the right Canon camera and lens by your side means you're ready to go.
