Highlight warning or zebra function for still photos


Is there or will there be a real time highlight warning or zebra stripe type function in the Canon EOS R line, specifically, the R6? I do have a real time histogram set up (for the same purpose) but have not yet mastered the ability to look at it in addition to the other settings when taking a photo quickly. I think the function exists for video.



Thanks, all! Yes, I can't imagine shooting like I am now with film! I wouldn't be doing this -- and I am truly enjoying it. I do know that I have a lot to learn! I've only had my camera for a year. It's a feature I had noticed, but not given much thought to, more than a year ago, when I was shopping for my camera.


I still love my DSLRs - if you look at my profile, I list my current gear and it's pretty massive as I never bothered to sell my stuff: I found a body lost its value too quickly (lenses much less so).  I love shooting with relatively primate stuff: I shoot with the Canon EOS D30, circa 2000 and love the experience for itself and the pictures are still good IMHO.  There are many genres where it will make no difference whether one uses DSLRs, MILCS or compact cameras.  Right now I shoot with (predominantly) Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji and Olympus...

However, for certain applications, especially wildlife as we do, Canon's 2nd generation MILCs are a huge step forward - IBIS, eye tracking, dynamic range, WYSWIG all increase the number of keepers and that is great!

cheers, TREVOR
