My Canon EOS M6 Mirrorless Camera Broke

I was able to use this camera for 2 years and I am very happy with the way it performed.
It is a mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses, it has all the functions that I need – it has a flip screen and it can be controlled wirelessly with the RC-6 remote or with a smartphone using the cannon camera app.

I have a lot of canon EF-S lenses so I attached a converter and I was able to use my lenses with this camera.

The only thing that the camera doesn’t have, and I wish it did, is a viewfinder.
The good news are that there is an option to attach an electronic viewfinder…
Bad news are that it is quite pricey and it is attached trough the hot shoe so once you have the EVF on,
you can’t use an external flash…

Sadly on 12.12.2020 my Canon M6 mirrorless camera broke – the shutter started malfunctioning.
Watch the video to learn more.

While editing the video calculated the estimate of the photos I might have taken over the last 2 years – basing it on about 300 frames a day, and I realized that I have most probably exceeded the lifespan of the camera because it does have shutter rated lifespan of only 100000 actuations. But many cameras perform absolutely fine even after exceeding that count by a lot.
