Don1 and gossamer88, my understanding was that the R6 will not give the maximum burst rate with the N version, whether Canon or off-brand. I've also read that the BM H is read by the R6 as an N (i.e., doesn't allow max burst...as indicated in the viewfinder by the red rather than green icon). I'd certainly buy the BM if it allowed the max burst. Thanks.

LP-E6N does give full 12 Fps burst (at least as indicated with green H+). From certain lower percentage of the battery it turns white.

I recently purchased a R6 . I already owned a Sigma 150-600mm C and the TC-1401 1.4x teleconverter. Wondering about the quality of that combo on the R6 I went to a small nearby lake to do a small test. These images were shot at 840mm. The photos are about 2400px (long side) crops and thereafter scaled down to 1600px for posting them here.

The R6 is not yet in the gearlist. Photo settings:
- First: EOS R6, Sigma 150-600 C with 1.4x @840mm, handheld, F9.0, 1/1000 , ISO2000
- Second: EOS R6, Sigma 150-600 C with 1.4x @840mm, handheld, F9.0, 1/1250 , ISO320

The second photo was against the light, so the eye is too much in the dark/ shadow. The beak and the droplets on its back look decent to me, given the combo and it being handheld.

Did not had the opportunity to try some BIF as the birds around were only in the water when I was there with this combo.

Next to a test with the Sigma 150-600 C and 1.4x , I shot the R6 with the lens only. These 2 photos were at 600mm, 'wide open'

The R6 is not yet in the gearlist. Photo settings:
- First: EOS R6, Sigma 150-600 C , @600mm, handheld, F6.3, 1/800 , ISO1250
- Second: EOS R6, Sigma 150-600 C , @600mm, handheld, F6.3, 1/800 , ISO1000

Much better results sans the TC. Are you looking to get the 800mm F11?

The 800mm F11 has crossed my mind, but the 150-600 is far more versatile for me. I only did some birding for this test, but usually do sports (rugby mostly). A fixed 800 does not seem very useful for that. The 150-600 can already be a stretch for things like rugby and only 'acceptable' while I'm an amateur, so can't expect pro results at those long focal lenghts. For now I think the 150-600 provides sufficient quality for me, so not justified to get a 800mm additionally.

Agree about the versatility of the zoom. Not to mention the MFD of the Sigma is also better. I have both and they each have their place.

I am not a bird photographer, but I had my buddy's Sigma 150-600 and was testing it on my R6. This little guy jumped onto the bird bath for a few minutes while I was having my morning coffee. Shot him through the kitchen window.

MAYBE for my own personal satisfaction. LOL! I do sometimes if I am somewhere that has unique birds, but I don't make a habit of it.

RE: Batteries;
Our own resident battery expert is on the case in the R5 thread and here;

Has anyone tried other than Canon's LP-E6NH Battery Pack in the R6? If so, how's the compatibility?

Don1 wrote in post #19175209 (external link)
I alternate between LP-E6NH and LP-E6N without any issues. It is possible that the LP-E6N has a shorter battery life but that is not evident as I get good life with both.

gossamer88 wrote in post #19175216 (external link)
I have this brand in non-H and has served me well. So planning on getting the H ones soon.

https://www.amazon.com …-Batteries/dp/B08FNZF3Q​H/ (external link)

I've been eyeing these, this is a new brand to me. I wonder if they are the same as the Neewer that have now disappeared from the markets?

Don1 wrote in post #19175222 (external link)
I don't know from experience whether the burst rate is affected. But whether it is 12 fps or 10fps it is plenty fast enough for BIF in my experience. I came from a 7DII which is 10FPS and the difference, if there is any, does not affect my shooting in any practical way.

LP-E6N does give full 12 Fps burst (at least as indicated with green H+). From certain lower percentage of the battery it turns white.

Have V60 rated cards proven sufficient for BIF bursts?
