The Canon EOS R System is making history once again with the release of the Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10. These will be the 1st EOS R-series enhanced cameras with APS-C image sensing devices from Canon. The EOS R7 is aimed at hobbyists, while the EOS R10 is aimed at content creators.
Canon aims to consolidate its position as the US market giant for mirrorless focus cameras in Q1 2022 with new EOS R products. Canon has overhauled the chassis of both cameras, and the new APS-C image sensor has allowed the business to provide high-end performance at a reduced price.
Canon EOS R7
The camera features a new 32.5MP sensor with a 1.6x crop ratio compared to a full-frame camera. Thanks to the latest DIGIC X system processor, it may work on a 15fps quick capture with the mechanical shutter & 30fps with the advanced electronic shutter.
The R7 can also shoot 4K 30fps full-width super-sampled footage and 4K 60fps with line-skipped full-width or 1.81x cropped footage. C-Log 3 recording is also available on the R7. The R7 offers seven-step weather sealing, twin SD card connectors & vibration adjustment.
The camera’s autofocus system is inherited from the R3. While it can’t shoot at the same speed as its higher-tier sibling, it does have the same AI-recognition engine capable of recognizing humans, animals, and cars.
The R7 boasts in-built picture neutralization, pollution & humidity resistance for a better visual 1.62M-dot LCD over the rear side, but no flash, unlike the R10. The LP-E6NH battery powers the camera, also used in the EOS R5 and R6 cameras.
Canon EOS R10
The EOS R10 is currently the series’ entry-level model. It employs Canon’s 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, which is found in many of the company’s other cameras. With a DIGIC X system processor, the EOS R10 can take around 15 fps with an enhanced mechanical shutter mode & around 23 fps with the electronic shutter mode.
The sensor is not stacked/backside lit compared to R7. Furthermore, there is no in-body stabilization. The R10 features an upgraded autofocus technology from the R-series cameras, which can now follow humans, animals, and cars. The latest picture modes have included a focus ordering feature & a panorama option. It turns each picture you take into a memorable one.
Although it does not support RAW video, the camera can store 4K video at 30 fps. A 2.36M-dot OLED EVF with a 3-inch completely flexible touchscreen with 1.04M-dot resolution can be found on the back.
A sole UHS-II SD device can be fixed with the smaller LP-E17 power source under the battery rear. A 7.0 stops digital image stabilization. The ability to record forever without the 30 mins limit & a manual AF/MF switch on the body for lenses are common to both cameras.
Canon also unveiled two new RF-S lenses geared for smaller sensor sizes. The RF-S18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM & the RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM are two examples. The body-only EOS R10 costs $980, $1099 with the RF-S18-45mm, and $1379 with the RF-S18-150mm.
The EOS R7 costs $1499 without the RF-S18-150mm lens and $1899 with it. The RF-S18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM will set you back $300, while the RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM will set you $479. These 2 brand-new cameras will be available in the global marketplace in late 2022.
