The EOS R is Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera, designed to lure you far from the similarity Nikon’s brand-new Z6 and also Sony’s dazzling Alpha A7 III. While Canon has currently dipped its toe right into the mirrorless waters with its moderate range of APS-C sensor-based EOS M cams, consisting of the EOS M6 and also EOS M5, the EOS R is the launching design in a new line of full-frame mirrorless cameras, based upon a brand-new lens mount that will be called the RF mount.
A lot of Canon individuals have been waiting for an extended period for the EOS R, so the inquiry is whether it can supply on its assurance and warrant its price when faced with some fierce competitors.
Canon EOS R Special features:
- 30.3 MP (reliable) full-frame sensor
- New RF lens place
- 4K video clip recording
The EOS R utilizes a full-frame 30.3 MP sensing unit without an optical low-pass filter. If that sounds familiar, it’s because Canon’s EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR shares the same pixel matter, although Canon emphasizes this isn’t the very same sensing unit. We think it’s closely related to the chip used in the EOS 5D Mark IV, though, which is no bad thing as it is among Canon’s best-doing sensing units.
There’s also a brand-new DIGIC 8 processing engine and even a healthy native ISO series of 100-40,000, which can be expanded to setups equivalent to ISO50 and also 102,400– matching the EOS 5D Mark IV exactly.
Like Nikon with its brand-new Z variety of full-frame mirrorless electronic cameras, Canon has selected a new lens mount for its R variety (we think there will be more) of mirrorless cameras. The new RF mount shares the same throat size of 54mm as Canon’s EF lens install. However, it has a considerably shorter flange range (the distance from the rear of the lens to the sensing unit). This has dropped from 44mm to 20mm, though it’s a little bit longer than Nikon’s Z place flange distance of 16mm.
Four brand-new RF lenses are being launched together with the EOS R: the RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, RF 28-70mm f/2L USM, RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM as well as RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro.
As you ‘d expect, you’ll be able to use your Canon EF lenses on the EOS R using an adapter, yet rather than launch one alternative Canon’s introducing four different adapters. There’s the basic (and cheaper) EF-EOS R install an adapter. The EF-EOS R place an adapter with a control ring (more on that particular in a little bit). EF-EOS R place adapter with an integrated round polarizing filter. And also, the EF-EOS R place adapter with a built-in variable neutral thickness filter.
Interestingly, Canon has likewise chosen to leave out in-body picture stabilizing. Something that equals Sony and also Nikon offer in their full-frame mirrorless cameras. Canon’s disagreement is that it’s far better to customize the IS. To a particular lens as opposed to a one-size-fits-all technique. Which would additionally indicate a more substantial camera impact? That stated, 2 of that new RF lens does not feature any image stabilization in all.
The EOS R is surprisingly only the third EOS electronic camera to feature 4K. After the EOS 5D Mark IV and also EOS M50. Nevertheless, while rivals provide full recording across the sensor. The EOS R is compromised a little below with a 1.7 x crop aspect, which will make wide-angle framing tough. There’s an option of 30p or 24p, however, while Full HD video clip can additionally contend up to 60p.
The digital viewfinder (EVF) on the EOS R includes an excellent 3.69-million dot resolution. As well as a magnification of 0.76 x. So while it matches the EVF in the Nikon Z7 as well as Z6 for resolution, it can not reasonably match the 0.80 x magnifying used by its Nikon opponents.
The EOS R’s EVF matches by a large 3.15-inch vari-angle touchscreen behind the cam. With a respectable 2.1-million dot resolution.
While Nikon sparked some conflict by carrying out a single XQD card on the Z7 as well as Z6. Canon has decided to stick with SD cards for the EOS R, with a single UHS-II suitable slot offered.
If you’re an existing Canon individual that’s planning on utilizing the EOS R alongside your current package. You’ll please recognize that the EOS R. Its compatible with Canon’s LP-E6 battery, numerous EOS DSLRs use this battery. The EOS R itself provided with the LP-E6N battery, which allows for in-camera charging
