Canon announces 32.5MP APS-C EOS R7 and 24MP EOS R10

Comments Comments

Canon has announced the EOS R7, a 32.5MP mirrorless camera and the first APS-C format camera for RF mount. 

The R7 has been launched alongside another new APS-C camera, the EOS R10, as well as with a pair of kit lenses: the Canon RF-S 18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM and RF-S 18–150mm F3.5–6.3 IS STM.

The EOS R7 is built around a 32.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor and, according to Canon, it inherits the intelligent autofocus technology found in the company's full frame models. This includes Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, and head, face and eye detection over 100% of the frame. 

The R7 offers subject recognition modes, including animal, people and vehicle tracking. Face and Tracking focus modes can be paired in conjunction with any of the AF area or zone modes, instead of it being a separate setting, and three customisable AF zones will let you make presets based on your specific needs.

It's powered by Canon's DIGIC X Processor, and for stills, the R7 can capture up to 15 frames per second (fps) with its mechanical shutter, making it the fastest continuous mechanical shutter of any APS-C EOS camera, and up to 30fps via its electronic shutter. The R7 offers a maximum of 1/8000th second mechanical shutter speed and 1/16000th for its electronic shutter.

With the 30fps RAW burst mode, images captured during continuous shooting can be viewed as a movie file for simple frame selection, and when pre-shooting mode is enabled, it's possible to capture images 0.5 seconds before the shutter button is pressed. 

The R7 also features up to eight stops of image stabilisation. 

Video specs include UHD 4K video at up to 30p or at up to 60p with the option of using a full-width (but line-skipped) or 1.81x cropped region. There’s also 10-bit video, in either C-Log 3 or in HDR PQ, for true HDR playback on compatible displays.

On the rear, the R7 has a 2.36M-dot OLED viewfinder and 1.62M-dot (900 x 600 pixel) fully-articulating 3” touchscreen. Other features include dual UHS-II SD card slots, weather sealing and a USB-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 3.5mm microphone jack and a micro HDMI port. The R7 also features a combined AF multi-controller and control wheel that allows AF point control with setting and playback functions in one thumb movement or rotation of the dial.

The EOS R7 uses the same LP-E6NH batteries shared by Canon’s EOS R5 and R6 cameras, which offers up to 770 shots per charge through the LCD in power saving mode. EVF figures are 500 and 380 shots per charge, respectively (CIPA-rated).

The EOS R7 will be available in late June for $2,349 body-only, or $2,899 with the new 18–150mm F3.5–6.3 IS STM zoom lens.

Alongside the R7, Canon also announced the R10, a 24MP entry-level APS-C mirrorless camera for the RF mount. It's capable of up to 23fps shooting (15 with mechanical shutter), oversampled 4K up to 30p, 4K/60p with crop, a 2.36M dot OLED viewfinder and 1.04M dot fully-articulating rear touchscreen, and a single UHS-II card slot.
