The announcement was made at an event held in Tokyo, Japan. The camera includes a new RF bracket, which means we have a brand new collection of lenses that were also declared. Canon are also supplying a bundle for $3,399 (roughy Rs.2,33,300) which comes with the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM kit lens.
The new EOS R boasts of a 30.3-megapixel, full-frame CMOS sensor with Canon’s famed DualPixel autofocus (AF) technologies and its DIGIC 8 picture chip. The ISO range is quite good also, which range from 100-40,000, with 8fps continuous shooting and a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000sec. The camera also supports 4K video recording up to 30fps, 1080p gearing around 60fps, and HD recording up to 120fps. Advanced shooting modes such as Canon Log, 4:2:0 8-bit recoding and 4:2:2 10-bit video output over HDMI will also be supported. The camera also has a silent shooting mode but just for single frame shooting. Silent shooting in burst mode will be coming in the future by means of a software upgrade.

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

Among the main highlights of the EOS R is the huge 5,655 selectable autofocus points, compared to 493 AF points on Nikon’s top-end Z7 and the 693 AF points on the Sony’s flagship A9 full-frame mirrorless cameras. This should give the EOS R a large advantage when it comes to monitoring fast moving subjects. The new EOS R includes a brand new touch bar right next to the EVF, which Canon says”allows users to easily get their customizable preferences, such as AF, ISO and white balance.”

The camera has built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, a single UHS-II SD card slot, and a weather and dust resistant body which weighs around 580g. The EOS R will be compatible with all of Canon’s EF and EF-S lenses through the respective adapters. Canon also launched four lenses at the event, which include 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 declared a new app named Digital Photo Professional Express for the Apple iPad, which will enable users edit CR3 RAW files in their own tablet. This will be available in October.
