Canon EOS R details in a nutshell

The Canon EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera is official now, and mirrorless is officially trending. The EOS R is officially rolling with a 30.3-megapixel full-frame sensor with ISO range of 100-40,000. Inside you’ll find Canon’s DIGIC 8 image processor with a dual-pixel autofocus setup up front. Around the back is a big touchscreen, and there’s an OLED electronic viewfinder up top.

The Canon EOS R is the first in what’s likely a long line of Canon-made mirrorless cameras. There’s a full-frame image sensor in here with a “redeveloped lens mount” as Canon’s said several times earlier today. The body of this machine has the capability of capturing continuous photos at up to 8fps and can capture video at UHD 4K at 30fps.

Key Canon EOS R Mirrorless Digital Camera Specs:
• 30.3MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
• DIGIC 8 Image Processor
• UHD 4K30 Video; C-Log & 10-Bit HDMI Out
• Dual Pixel CMOS AF, 5655 AF Points
• 3.69m-Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder
• 3.15″ 2.1m-Dot Swivel Touchscreen LCD
• Expanded ISO 50-102400, 8 fps Shooting
• Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, SD UHS-II Card Slot
• Multi-Function Bar, Dual Pixel RAW
• RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens

If you’ll have a peek at this post from earlier this week you’ll find the trends gathering. Fujufilm is in the mix as well. This new wave of devices works with RF Lenses, complete with their own dedicated control ring. Lenses here have dials for zooming and manual focus, too.

Lenses launching with the camera include the 24-105mm f/4 L, a 50mm f/1.2mm L, a 28-70mm f/2 L, and the one I’ll be looking for first – 35mm f/1.8 macro. Three lens-mount adapters for EOS SLR lenses will be released as well. At least one of these adapters has an EOS R control ring (like the standard RF lenses) and another has drop-in filters – neat!

The EOS R itself will be available for $2,299 body-only in Late October. There’ll also be a lens package for $3,399 that includes a 24-105mm lens – that’ll also be out in Late October with pre-orders starting as soon as September 12th.

Stick around as we continue to get more information on this camera and its expanded set of lenses. We’ll have our hands on this camera sooner than later – so keep your eyes peeled for our full review!
