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.

Canon EOS R Reviews

Great Entry Camera into the Canon Mirrorless World

By Nathan
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-07

I purchased this to replace my canon 1ds mk 3. With about a week of use already the autofocus is amazing. The eye-tracking is amazing and while not as good as the R5 or R6 it is very good for the price. Lenses adapted with the EF-RF adapter work great and autofocus well.

Great Full Frame upgrade

A Foot in the Door

By Justin
Rated 5 out of 5

I bought the R and the RF to EF mount adapter as my own introduction into the mirrorless full-frame market, and I am not disappointed. I should preface by saying that I don't shoot all...and didn't need anything extraordinary in a camera body to support such features, which is why I steered away from the R5 or R6. I currently own a 6D with plenty of ef glass to support, and I was curious about the performance of the r-lineup and its growing sphere of influence--so I bought the R as a second full-frame body, and I am picking it up more and more over the 6D. Resolution over the RP and 6D, the vari-angle rear screen, better battery life than the RP, and uniqueness of the R are ultimately what convinced me on this body over the others. It might have been a trial for Canon to introduce the R with its weird features like the touch bar and button placement, but that's the wonderful thing about evolution--gradual changes through adaptation that have led to the current models in the r-lineup. Quickly put, the R is a great camera, and if you're like me (focusing on stills), then I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a reasonably priced transition point from a DSLR to mirrorless, and you want to stick to Canon. The resolution is noticeably better when zooming into my photographs on the R over the 6D, which makes sense given the newer processor and extra megapixels. Low-light performance is on par with my 6D (which is one of the reasons why I bought a 6D in the first place), but I have yet to try out any astrophotography--so that's coming up. The vari-angle screen is amazing, and I love using it to get down low, or have the camera positioned well above my head. The battery life is just fine, as I have gone on a 6 hour hike (purposely taking only one battery), and said battery lasted the whole time with heavy use. I always have extra batteries, anyway, so the battery life is not a huge factor for me. Lastly, the m-fn touch bar is interesting. I have customized it to zoom in instead of pressing multiple buttons, and I like the functionality of it. I get that ergonomically it can get in the way, but I'm used to it after a few weeks of use. The autofocus is wonderful compared to any dslr I have ever owned, and I have cut down on the amount of time it takes for the 'need' to keep a subject in focus. I have experienced a slight lag with the evf and live shooting, which can become annoying, but it hasn't ruined my workflow when I am out and about. The more I shoot with the R, the more I love it. I do plan on eventually buying some RF glass, but at the moment I am perfectly fine with the way my current lenses perform with the R. Don't think for one second that you would be settling when you buy an R--it knows how to perform!

Not convinced

By William
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-06

I'm not convinced a mirrorless camera is the way to go. I sold a Canon 5D MK IV to buy this. At this point, I wish I'd kept the 5D. It's a much more solidly built camera than this R. There are a few things I do like about the R - it seems to handle higher ISO's very well, but no better than the 5D MK IV. I like being able to crop in camera, but it reduces the MP to less than 12 MP. After using a DSLR for years, it's hard to get used to the viewfinder in this camera. Also, the center focus point is so large that it's hard to focus on a smaller subject. I struggled with the thought of simply sending it back and buying another DSLR before they're all gone, but I waited too long. Now I'm stuck with this camera that has so many idiosyncrasies I'm not sure I'll ever get used to it. Maybe with time I'll like it better, but for now the jury is still out. Anyone want to buy a nearly new Canon R with a battery grip and adapter?

We have a studio with a few camera systems (R5, GFX) and the R is the camera I recommend the most. It's simple, straight forward, gets the job done, and you can beat the crap out of it and it just keeps on going. Plus its affordable!

Upgraded from a Canon T7i so there was a huge learning curve when it came to where controls were and how to operate them. I've been extremely pleased with the photos I've taken so far, I know the bad pictures are operator error and not camera.

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.
