Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - Great New Stuff -

Canon’s new EOS R is a full­frame mir­ror­less cam­era with a 35 mm full-frame CMOS sen­sor. It uses the lat­est DIGIC 8 image pro­ces­sor and in­tro­duces the new RF Mount and RF Lens with a 12-pin con­nec­tor.

Ac­cord­ing to Canon, the EOS R has the world’s fastest aut­o­fo­cus (0.05 sec­onds), has Touch-and-drag fo­cus­ing with an in­cred­i­ble 5 655 AF points, and is the first cam­era to al­low low-light aut­o­fo­cus­ing all the way down to -6 EV.

If you want to use the EOS R for wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy, you’ll be happy to know that it of­fers si­lent shoot­ing, which means no more dis­trac­tion when cap­tur­ing that spe­cial mo­ment.

The EOS R is also a great film­mak­ing tool, let­ting you cap­ture 4K video with full au­dio con­trol. It boasts a vari-an­gle screen and man­ual fo­cus peak­ing, and thanks to the abil­ity to out­put in 10 bits over HDMI, you’ll be able to cap­ture footage in neu­tral con­trast at ISO 400 with up to 12 stops of dy­namic range.

If the EOS R isn’t for you be­cause you al­ready have an EOS M cam­era, try out the new EF-M 32 mm lens, which of­fers the equiv­a­lent of a 51 mm fo­cal length.
