The first step in Canon's mirrorless evolution, the EOS R pairs a redeveloped lens mount and updated full-frame image sensor for a unique and sophisticated multimedia camera system. Revolving around the new RF lens mount, the EOS R is poised to be the means from which to make the most of a new series of lenses and optical technologies.

Focusing on the camera itself, the EOS R features a high-resolution 30.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor along with a DIGIC 8 image processor. The combination of these technologies offers a wide sensitivity range up to a native ISO 40000, fast continuous shooting to 8 fps, and UHD 4K30 video recording. In addition to imaging, the sensor also facilitates an advanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, which uses 5655 selectable points for quickly and accurately acquiring focus. This focusing system is also sensitive down to EV -6 for working in impressively dark conditions. The AF system is also perfectly matched to the UHD 4K video recording capabilities, which are also rounded out by Movie Digital IS to minimize camera shake, built-in Canon Log gamma for a greater dynamic range, and 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 output over HDMI for even greater color control.

Beyond the performance attributes, this camera has been designed from the ground up and features a high-resolution 3.69m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder for clear and bright eye-level viewing. Conversely, a rear 3.15" 2.1m-dot LCD touchscreen is also featured, and has a swivel design to suit working from high and low angles. Also catering to the tactile cravings is a Multi-Function bar, which is customizable for intuitively adjusting shooting settings. And as a camera built to withstand the toughest environments, the magnesium alloy body is dust and moisture-sealed.

Canon RF Lens Mount
Beginning with a new lens mount, the EOS R is the first camera to support Canon's line of RF-mount lenses. This mount is characterized by its wide 54mm diameter and short 20mm flange-back distance, which promotes the ability to design lenses that are both faster and smaller than their SLR equivalents. The mount also incorporates a 12-pin electronic contact system for more sophisticated autofocus and image stabilization capabilities. This mount design also lends full compatibility to existing EF and EF-S-mount lenses via an optional EF-EOS R Mount Adapter.
30.3MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 8 Image Processor
A large 30.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor is featured and serves as an ideal balance between high-resolution output, low-light performance, and high-speed capabilities. When paired with the DIGIC 8 image processor, the EOS R affords a native sensitivity range of ISO 100-40000, which can be expanded to ISO 50-102400 for working in a variety of lighting conditions. Quick continuous shooting to 8 fps is also supported for photographing moving subjects.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of 5655 phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot. When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery. Additionally, the focus system is sensitive down to EV -6 for working in truly low-light conditions with accurate AF capabilities.
UHD 4K Video Recording and Canon Log Gamma
Designed for multimedia image-maker, the EOS R supports UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution recording at up to 30 fps at 480 Mb/s, along with Full HD 1080p shooting at 60 fps and HD 720p at 120 fps for slow motion playback. When recording in-camera, 4K video has 4:2:2 sampling and 8-bit color depth, a 4:2:2 10-bit clean output in ITU-R CT.2020 is possible when using an external recorder.

Integrated Canon Log also allows users to capture flat images with an improved dynamic range of 800%, or 12 stops. This function makes it easier to match cameras in post-production as well as provides the most latitude and potential for color grading. For monitoring, a View Assist function is available, which emulates a graded look for more accurate viewing on the camera's LCD.

Audio can be recorded using the on-board stereo microphone or an optional external mic can also be used via the 3.5mm mic jack.
Dual Pixel RAW
First introduced with the EOS 5D Mark IV, Dual Pixel RAW allows photographers to record all the information the sensor's unique pixel architecture can deliver, providing a way for fine adjustments to be made after the image is taken. These adjustments include focus fine tuning that can help you ever-so-slightly adjust the focus point to bring out extra details, shift bokeh around for improved composition, and reduce the impact of ghosting on your photos. This requires the use of Canon's Digital Photo Professional software.
Body Design
  • Integrated 3.69m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder has 0.71x magnification and affords a bright and clear means for eye-level viewing.
  • Rear 3.15" 2.1m-dot LCD features a swivel design for easier use when working from high, low, and front-facing angles. It is also a touchscreen for intuitive control over shooting, playback, and menu navigation controls.
  • Customizable Multi-Function Bar is located near the viewfinder on the rear of the camera, and can be set to control four functions using right, left, slide, and press movements. It can be used to adjust ISO or white balance, to check focus/display focus info or AF modes, change to movie shooting modes, use flexible-priority AE, or be customized for other functions.
  • Top panel incorporates a dot-matrix LCD, which provides quick access to important camera settings.
  • One SD memory card slot featured, and supports the UHS-II protocol for faster read and write speeds to better support 4K video recording and fast continuous shooting.

Canon EOS R Reviews

Mirrorless For The Win

By Wade
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-17

I purchased the EOS R, which is my first full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. I also purchased the EF-RF lens adapter and have full useability for my existing lenses that I used on my EOS T5i. This is a huge improvement, moving from the 18MP T5i to the R's 30Megapixel capabilities. The photos are amazing and the 4K video is stunning.

Great capabilities for the price

I upgraded to this body from the Canon M50. The EOS R is a full-frame compared to the cropped sensor of the M50. The quality of images is great. I love the feature that offsets tungsten light flickering when photographing inside buildings. For anyone on a budget but needing a full-frame setup, this is a the great compromise.

Unbeatable entry into professional Mirrorless Full frame

I've had my EOS R after I saved up and pushed passed the desire to settle for a RP. I'm glad i did since I would've out worked the RP in a short period of time. I've shot Concert, Engagement, Wedding, Private Portrait, and Event Photography besides hobby level photography and this camera has always delivered very well. Only thing I can see this suffering with is speed on occasion with FPS so if you are shooting sports/auto it may lack a tad. It does work for some birding just be good on timing shots. The sharpness and clarity is on par with R6/R5 all day as I have personally compared and edited shots with the R5 directly for events both wedding and Concert. This camera is an underdog. Now that Canon is growing its Mirrorless line. It seems to be less generous with Full frame Mirrorless. Now the price point has been replaced with well equipped crop sensor cameras. If you want full frame you'll want to snag a discontinued RP or R otherwise pony up the hiked up prices of the R6 and R5. Using adapted glass on the R has been an absolute blast with the Drop in filter EF/RF adapter. Highly recommended. Seems to work well the most with Canon/Sigma EF glass especially Sigma ART glass. Tamron can be touchy and even occasionally throw error codes. Battery life is excellent. Carrying 4 batteries is more then enough for an exhausting shoot day. I never use all 4. Can hit 3 tops usually. AF speed is very good on EF glass and works good enough for paid events. RF glass is insanely fast on this camera even on the Dual Pixel V1 system. I've personally loved the performance of the 100mm Macro RF, and 70-200 2.8 RF. Only cons I think are apparent are: -Lack of Dual card slot (At least 2 SD would be nice) -Lack of IBIS -Touch Slider usage is poor to useless (Disabled on my camera) -Slow FPS (Desirable if you shoot birds/Automobiles) Pros outweigh the cons all day and I can always recommend the R. Especially since the Video specs are STILL very good even compared to newer cameras. I honestly could never recommend the RP because of the Dynamic Range but with the R the Dynamic range is very good and has recovered shots very well. The price difference being small from RP to R makes the R the obvious choice for me. I'll be keeping this camera for good and it'll become my new B camera if I find a proper A camera replacement.

Before I got this camera I saw a lot of reviews of why people didn't like this camera. But being the stubborn person I am, I still purchased it. And to this day I am extremely happy I didn't listen to those reviews. I did end up also buying an RF lens as well, but overall this camera is perfect for me.

Extraordinary camera!

This is actually my first SLR since my Miranda D sixty years ago. I used that one to take great pictures of the moon and Jupiter and Saturn through my 6 telescope. I look forward to what I can do with this one. Technology is amazing. The kit lens and a 50mm standard lens work great, but I need to add a longer telephoto and an extreme wide angle. I know there will be a learning curve, but this will be fun!

Canon EOS R for landscape

By Tim
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-04

I love this camera for landscapes and studio work. I have the R6 which is also a great camera I use for street and astrophotography because of the awesome ISO but the R with the extra MP and great price point really hits the spot when I need the extra size and I'm using a tripod. A great camera for the price point!

Can the battery be charged via the USB port?
Asked by: ROBERT
The battery for the EOS-R can be charged with the USB port however, there are some details you'll need to keep in mind. It will charge slower than the charger it brings and it can't charge while the camera is on. The only way it will charge is if you have the LP-E6NH (comes in the box). If you use any LP-E6/LP-E6N variants (without the H), it will not charge.
