Canon's EOS R camera packs a range of advanced features, everything from a full-frame, 30.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor, to a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system for fast and accurate autofocus, to impressive 4K video recording capabilities. All this in a compact and intuitive design that's compatible with RF, EF* and EF-S* lenses.
SUPERB IMAGE QUALITY
The EOS R camera features a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approx. 30.3 effective megapixels for stunning results with incredible detail and clarity, even in low-light situations. It’s powered by the DIGIC 8 Image Processor, which enables an expansive ISO range, enhances Image Stabilization and turbocharges operations across the board for outstanding image quality and impressive performance. The EOS R camera has a standard ISO sensitivity range of 100–40000 for stills and 100–25600 for video (100–12800 for 4K video shooting). Combined with the EOS R camera’s remarkable low-light AF performance, still and video shooting is possible even in dark situations in a variety of places and occasions.
The EOS R camera’s AF system features an incredible 5,655 manually selectable AF points**. Combined with a focus area that covers approx. 88% horizontal and 100% vertical*** when using RF lenses and select EF lenses, this AF system helps ensure swift and accurate focus no matter where your subject is located in the frame. Amazing for nighttime photography or in very low light, the EOS R camera’s brilliant AF can operate in light as dim as a light rating of EV -6^ where other AF systems may fail or search. Phenomenal AF is achieved even when using lenses with high F numbers. This ultra-sensitive AF works in concert with the EOS R’s EVF to clearly capture subjects even when there’s limited light. The EOS R camera’s highly responsive Dual Pixel CMOS AF system delivers the world’s fastest AF focusing speed of 0.05 seconds^^. Touch and Drag AF makes it fast and easy to select a focus point without taking your eye away from the viewfinder.
PROFESSIONAL 4K VIDEO
Whether shooting videos to share with friends online or serving as a secondary camera on a large production, the EOS R camera offers advanced recording features such as 4K at 29.97 fps, Full HD at 59.94 fps and HD at 119.9 fps. Helpful functions include distortion correction during recording and Movie Digital IS. Additionally, video can be recorded during still photo shooting by simply pressing the Movie Shooting button. The EOS R camera can record 4K video using IPB or ALL-I compression and save them as MP4 files. This helps provide further flexibility with both file size, image quality and integration with video clips recorded with other cameras.
The EOS R camera features a high-precision 0.5-inch OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) EVF with approx. 3.69 million dots and a 23mm eyepoint. Displaying a bright image and extensive shooting information that rotates with the camera, the viewfinder excels in bright conditions where viewing the camera’s LCD may prove difficult. Especially helpful for wildlife photography, journalism and quiet situations, the EOS R camera has a silent shutter feature that uses an inaudible electronic shutter instead of the camera’s focal-plane shutter.
Comfortable and solid in the hand, the EOS R camera features a rigid yet lightweight magnesium alloy chassis that enhances body durability while shielding the camera from electromagnetic radiation and heat. It also has a tempered front panel for internal rigidity. The EOS R camera is designed for use in a variety of weather conditions. Sealing materials are used in critical areas, while its precise design and construction help to minimize accidental penetration of dust and moisture in the rest of the camera body.
