Canon’s EOS R Expands to APS-C


Canon has announced the launch of the EOS R7 and the EOS R10, its first cameras in the EOS R mirrorless system to be equipped with APS-C image sensors. Launched alongside the two cameras are the RF-S 18-45 mm f/4.56.3 IS STM lens and the RF-S 18-150 mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens.

Supported by the DIGIC X image processing engine, the EOS R7 and EOS R10 inherit the autofocuss­ing (AF) technology that harnesses the deep learning-based subject detection capabiliti­es of the EOS iTR

AF X system. Both devices are capable of up to 15 fps high-speed continuous shooting in mechanical and electronic first-curtain shutter modes (with AF/

AE tracking). In electronic shutter mode, the EOS

R7 is capable of shooting 32.5-megapixel images at up to approximat­ely 30 fps continuous shooting, whereas the EOS R10 shoots 24.2-megapixel images at up to approximat­ely 23 fps. Both cameras feature a Raw burst mode, which shoots full-resolution Raw images at up to 30 fps and both cameras utilise newly developed APS-C CMOS image sensors that are 32.5 and 24.2 megapixels, respective­ly. The EOS R7 features the sensor-shift type 5-axis In-Body IS (Image Stabilser) mechanism. Both devices feature Movie Digital IS, which conducts 5-axis image stabilisat­ion.

The EOS R7 can use 7K oversampli­ng to record 4K UHD video at up to 30p in the new 4K UHD Fine mode. Uncropped 4K 60p recording is possible in 4K UHD Standard mode. Meanwhile, the EOS R10 is capable of 4K UHD Fine 30p video achieved by 6K oversampli­ng. Both cameras are capable of 4K HDR PQ video recording and are equipped with a new Multi-Function

Shoe for high-speed communicat­ion and audio input. Besides the RF-S lenses which were developed specifical­ly for APS-C EOS R cameras, the EOS R7 and EOS R10 can also directly take RF lenses designed for full-frame cameras. This also applies for EF and EF-S lenses via the EF-EOS R mount adapters.

Other features include a new Panorama Shot SCN mode and an improved Panning SCN mode, a new in-camera Depth Compositin­g mode, a new auto-level function that automatica­lly detects and rotates the image sensor to correct tilted images and improvemen­t in auto white balance accuracy.

Debuting alongside the EOS R7 and EOS R10, the RF-S 18-45 mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S 18-150 mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM are kit lenses intended as the first lens for new users of the EOS R system. The 18-45 mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM is a standard zoom lens with a focal length range of 29-72 mm in full-frame equivalent terms, offering a wide-angle to medium telephoto range. It is about 44.3 mm long and weighs around 130 g. Meanwhile, the 18-150 mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM is a superzoom lens that covers a larger focal length range of 29-240 mm in full-frame equivalent terms. It weighs around 310 g and is 84.5 mm long.

The products will be available for purchase across stores from July 2022 onwards and will be priced at INR 1,27,995 (EOS R7 Body), INR 80,995 (EOS R10 Body), INR 28,995 (RF-S 18-45 mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM) and INR 45,995 (RF-S 18-150 mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM).
