The EOS R is Canon's first full frame mirrorless camera and sports an 30.3MP CMOS Sensor. The large megapixel count of the sensor will provide ample resolution for large prints, even when cropping or recomposing; while the large physical size of the senor will provide exceptional low light performance, dynamic range, and overall image quality.
Each of the Canon EOS R's 30 million pixels is made up of two photodiodes which can be used together or individually. This technology enables the creation of Dual Pixel RAW files which contain a pair of images shot from two very slightly different points of view. When processed using Digital Photo Professional software, Dual Pixel RAW files allow photographers to perform one of three types of unique adjustments. Image Micro-adjustment allows the position of maximum sharpness to be adjusted which is great for fine-tuning portrait images. Bokeh Shift allows out-of-focus highlights to be shifted horizontally so they coincide better with in-focus elements, and ghosting reduction can be used to reduce the appearance of artefacts like flare.
The Canon EOS R features a camera’s anti-flicker function that detects the frequency and phase of a light source’s flicker and captures images near the point of peak brightness when the subject is most likely to be properly illuminated.
With an advanced phase detection system and the powerful full-frame 30.3 Megapixel Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor thats been incorporated into the Canon EOS R Mirrorless Camera, youll be able to select between 5655 Autofocus positions. With this system, it uses majority of the sensors pixels (80% from the horizontal pixels and 100% of the vertical), which leads to an impressive super-fast autofocus system which performs exceptionally well when capturing stills as well as smooth focus tracking when recording video.
The Canon EOS R Mirrorless Camera features an 0.5-inch Organic EL electronic viewfinder. With the dedicated lens elements, it helps achieve clear, high resolution image showing 100% of the image area that can be viewed in lighting conditions, an even in bright conditions. The viewfinder also allows you to take photos knowing exactly how the image will turn out when changing the settings accordingly.
The Canon EOS R mirrorless system features a newly design RF mount, which was the best choice to incorporate the large diameter 54mm RF mount to achieve faster autofocus and high-speed communication between the camera and the lens.
The perfect compact and ergonomic design, being the Canon EOS R Mirrorless Camera, which you’ll find comfortability from the time you place them into your hands. It features the very same style hand grip that all DSLR models have. Controls are very easy to access, as well as the LCD menu system which will be similar and familiar to most EOS users.
Enjoy a bright and clear LCD 3.15-inch Vari-angle touch screen on the Canon EOS R camera, as it features an impressive 2.1 million dots to render high resolution image quality and when recording movies – you’ll achieve sharpness and clarity. The LCD’s colour tone can also be changed accordingly to help you match your shots just the way you want it to a specific scene.
The Canon EOS R Full Frame Mirrorless Camera is Canons most weather resistant mirrorless camera available to date, as features a durable magnesium alloy body, that offers an impressive high standard of protection. The body structure makes it advanced dust and moisture resistant – allowing you to shoot in most weather conditions.
You can now record in Canon Log with the EOS R camera from Canon. A setting that helps you achieve 800 percent increase in dynamic range, effectively reducing the loss of detail in the darkest and brightest parts of the image. When making use of the Canon Log on the Canon EOS R, you’ll achieve a super wide dynamic range of 12 stops with neutral contrast with an ISO setting of 400, making it perfect for shooting in difficult lighting conditions. The perfect setting to choose when you know your footage will be graded in post-production to produce those rich colours and superb detail.
You can record clean and uncompressed 4K digital video on the Canon EOS R camera with embedded timecode over HDMI output in 10-bit 4:2:2, being superlative for supplementary filming on large-scale production sets where the camera’s size and flexibility makes it a quick-moving device, which videographers will appreciate.
Advanced 4K features has improved in the Canon EOS R camera such as noise reduction to improve high ISO performance, still offering the same level of advanced 4K video features found in the EOS 5D Mark IV. Featuring a powerful 30.3 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor paired with the DIGIC 8 processor means that you can shoot highly-detailed 4K video with 10-bit 4:2:2 output via HDMI with true vivid colours and pin sharp video footage.
With Silent Shutter, its Ideal for wildlife, journalism and quiet situations, the Canon EOS R camera has a silent shutter feature that uses an inaudible electronic shutter.
Canon has packed the brand-new Canon EOS R camera with a new customisable multi-function bar, featuring a touch-operated control interface. This function allows you to customise it accordingly to your preference, with a range of functions, from controlling autofocus to setting your ISO speed, shutter speed or even your white balance. With the same similarities as the as the familiar EOS control wheel, however with a better improvement that offers silent operation and enhanced waterproofing.
A brand-new feature that Canon has incorporated into the Canon EOS R camera is the Flexible-priority AE mode (Fv), that easily allows you to set features such shutter speed, aperture and ISO to respond automatically or manually for greater convenience and flexibility.
