Canon EOS R Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera With 30.3-Megapixel Sensor, 4K Video Recoding LaunchedThe announcement was made at an event held in Tokyo, Japan. The camera includes a brand new RF mount, so we have a new series of lenses that were also declared. The EOS R will be available in October for an estimated price of $2,299 (roughy Rs. 1,57,700) to get only the body, which undercuts the Nikon Z6 and sets it more in line with the Sony A7 III. Canon will also be supplying a package for $3,399 (roughy Rs.2,33,300) that comes with all the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM kit lens.
The new EOS R features of a 30.3-megapixel, full-frame CMOS sensor with Canon’s famed DualPixel autofocus (AF) technologies and its DIGIC 8 image chip. The ISO range is quite good too, ranging from 100-40,000, with 8fps constant shooting and a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000sec. The camera also supports 4K movie recording up to 30fps, 1080p recording around 60fps, and HD recording up to 120fps. Advanced shooting modes like Canon Log, 4:2:0 8-bit recoding and 4:2:2 10-bit video output signal over HDMI are also supported. The camera also has a quiet shooting mode but just for single frame shooting. Quiet shooting in burst mode will probably be coming later on via a software update.

The Canon EOS R includes a fully articulating touchscreen and a brand new multi-function touch bar near the EVF

One of the major highlights of the EOS R is that the massive 5,655 selectable autofocus points, compared to 493 AF points on Nikon’s top-end Z7 and the 693 AF points about the Sony’s flagship A9 full-frame mirrorless cameras. This ought to give the EOS R a big edge when it comes to tracking fast moving issues. The new EOS R features a brand new touch bar right next to the EVF, which Canon says”allows users to more easily access their customizable preferences, including AF, ISO and white balance.”

The camera includes built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, one UHS-II SD card slot, and a weather and dust resistant body that weighs around 580g. The EOS R will probably be compatible with all of Canon’s EF and EF-S lenses throughout the various adapters. Canon also introduced four lenses in the event, including the RF 24-105mm F4L IS, RF 50mm F1.2L, RF 28-70mm F2L, and also the RF 35mm F1.8 IS Macro. The company also announced a new app named Digital Photo Professional Express for the Apple iPad, which will let users edit CR3 RAW files on their tablet. This will be available in October.
