Are you thinking of switching from compact camera to mirrorless camera? Good news to all Canon lovers! Canon unveiled their first 35mm full-frame Canon EOS R mirrorless interchangeable-lens digital camera that features an electronic viewfinder.
New Opportunities through RF Mount
The new 54mm diameter RF mount places the EOS R a league above the rest. With its short flange focal distance of 20mm and 12-pin contact points for an enhanced communication between the lens and body, the RF mount allows a new breed of compact, high image quality and advance specification lenses to be constructed.
The improved data transfer between the camera and the lens enhances Image Stabilization for both stills and video.
Seamless Union of OLED and Screen for Extra Control
Looking through the customisable 3.69-million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF); the EOS R provides users with an accurate depiction of the shot with the desired setting. A customisable multifunction bar with tap and slide functions, allows silent adjustments, suitable even for video recording. Along with the control ring on the RF lenses and the sub-electronic trapezoidal dial on-top, users have full control of the camera and the shot, without having to take their eyes off the scene to adjust settings.
The touch & drag AF allows the users to shift the AF point around using the touch screen, even while looking through the EVF. With a vari-angle LCD screen, users can shoot from unconventional angles.
The EOS R is the first Canon camera to feature FV exposure mode, which enables auto and direct control in one single mode for shutter speed, aperture and ISO sensitivity – all done without looking away from the EVF. Silent Shutter benefits users who do stills photography, shooting stealthily during a performance, conference or recital. A dot-matrix LCD is located at the top of the camera, providing crucial information at a glance without looking through the EVF or at the LCD screen.
The EOS R records in Ultra High Definition 4K at 30p/25p (3840 x 2160 pixels) video. The camera supports Canon’s proprietary Canon Log, which has proven results with the Cinema EOS System of video production equipment. The EOS R offers flexible control over shadows and highlights to achieve better subtle details in the bright and dark areas during post-processing and colour grading. 4K video is displayed with a rich 10-bit output gradation and a wide colour gamut through the HDMI terminal.
Paired with RF lenses, the EOS R can make 1/8 stops aperture adjustments during video recording, allowing precise control over exposure to match lighting conditions. MF peaking function allows accurate focusing when using manual focus by highlighting areas in focus. The Focus Guide function displays an indication whether the subject is in focus; front focus or rear focus, enabling users to achieve accurate clarity with better control.
The EOS R, RF24-105mm f/4L IS USM and RF50mm f/1.2L USM will be available from October 2018. For more information, please visit:
