Quick Look: Canon EOS R

Canon goes beyond the horizon as it launches the newest EOS R line from its product portfolio. The new line, composed of four new mount adapters and four RF lenses, highlights the Canon’s next generation of mirrorless camera that expands the possibilities of optics.

Built from the ground up, the pioneering EOS R System delivers an entirely new level of innovation, enabling richer, more detailed results, with unparalleled levels of sharpness and detail. EOS R is the first camera to feature the RF lens mount with a 12-pin connection, flange back distance of 20mm and a wide 54mm mount diameter enabling even greater flexibility in lens design.

Through the combination of high-performance RF lenses, a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approximately 30.3 million effective pixels and the latest DIGIC 8 image processor, the EOS R delivers high-quality images. Digital Lens Optimizer, which corrects factors such as lens aberrations, draws on the power of RF lenses to send correction data to the camera body, minimizing impact on continuous shooting speed. Boasting the world’s fastest autofocus – in as little as 0.05 seconds- and the ability to seamlessly capture moving subjects fast and accurately, with up to 8fps continuous shooting (fixed AF) and 5fps with AF tracking, EOS R enables consistently confident use. It has Touch and Drag AF that enables intuitive selection of the impressive 5,655 selectable AF positions – more than any other camera in its class. As the world’s first camera to enable low-light autofocusing down to -6 EV, the EOS R is optimized for low-light shooting thanks to the advanced Electronic Viewfinder (EVF), with 3.69 million dots, provides 100 percent coverage of the scene, making it possible to see subjects in accurate colour even in near-dark.
