Canon EOS R Mirrorless Camera
The Canon EOS R sees Canon’s long awaited arrival into the full-frame mirrorless market. Launching with a 30.3MP body, Canon have also confirmed that there will be a new series of RF lenses available.
The camera body offers some impressive headline features that you would expect from a full-frame mirrorless camera – it is significantly smaller and lighter than a traditional DSLR, and the lack of mirror offers silent shooting. Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF (autofocus) system excels at tracking subjects and adjusting focus without hunting – perfect for video as well as stills.
The electronic viewfinder is high-resolution and responsive, appealing to fans of the traditional optical eye viewfinder, while the LCD screen is touch responsive and vari-angle, offering great flexibility when shooting from awkward angles.
The CMOS sensor processing engine allows you to get the most out of the camera's 8fps for stills and 4K video capacity, when used with high capacity memory cards.
Additionally, flange distance between the rear element of the lens, and the sensor itself is shorter than the distance on DSLRs. This allows lenses with wide apertures to be built - we've detailed the Canon RF lenses available below.
