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 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.
  • Magnesium alloy body design is lightweight, durable, and features dust- and water-resistant seals for use in a variety of weather conditions.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity enable wireless sharing, control, and image transfer with a compatible smart device via the Canon Camera Connect app, which also supports geotagging your files using your mobile device's location data.
  • Included LP-E6N rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides approximately 430 shots per charge, and in-camera charging is supported via the PD-E1 USB Power Adapter. This camera is also compatible with the LP-E6 battery, however is not supported for in-camera charging.

RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens

Included with the camera body is the versatile RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens; a standard zoom covering wide-angle to portrait-length focal lengths. Its f/4 constant maximum aperture maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range and suits working in a variety of lighting conditions. An Image Stabilizer also suits photographing in low-light by compensating for the effects of camera shake to result in sharper imagery when shooting handheld. Benefitting both stills and video applications, it also has an Ultrasonic Motor that delivers quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.

Other Camera Features

  • Digital Lens Optimizer helps to minimize the appearance of various optical aberrations in-camera, including diffraction, for cleaner image quality.
  • Multi shot noise reduction technology records four sequential exposures and then combines them in-camera to produce an image with smoother tones and lower noise to suit long exposure images.
  • Images can be saved as Compact Raw (C-RAW / .CR3) files, which offer smaller file sizes for faster post-processing.
  • Language Support: English, German, French, Dutch, Danish, Portuguese, Finnish, Italian, Ukraine, Norwegian, Swedish, Spanish, Greek, Russian, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Vietnamese, Hindi, Romanian, Turkish, Arabic, Thai, Simplified/Traditional Chinese, Korean, Malay, Indonesian, and Japanese.

I am very happy with the purchase I made. EOS R is a great camera. It’s pretty easy to figure it out and use. I really like the quality of pictures I get with my EOS R. I like the design and the form which is giving nice look and is very comfortable to use. Even with COVID going on B&H was able to ship my order right after the purchase. Thank you!

Fantastic Upgrade

I recently upgraded to this amazing mirrorless camera after working with a Rebel t6. The difference is astonishing. I have it with the 24-100mm f/4L lenses, which makes it a bit heavy on the wrist. You can carry it comfortably thanks to the grip but I would recommend a wrist strap. Being mirrorless, the shutter release is much faster. The quality is astonishing. It is very responsive to change in focus and focal lengths. Video is very stable and crisp. I'm still getting used to it and trying out the different settings but I've already bettered my product and received more bookings since upgrading. Can't wait to keep getting new lenses for different shoots and adventures!

Pleasantly Surprised

Recently, I decided to get into the mirrorless format. I did plenty of research on the subject and finally chose the EOS R as my first purchase. Having done some study on the R series, I honestly didn’t expect the great experience I’ve so far encountered with this camera. I’m currently using it for in studio work(portrait, product photography), and am very impressed with the autofocus, image quality and ease of use. It’s layout is different from Canon’s DSLR line, but it’s simple to learn and the menu system is the same user friendly style in all Canon bodies I’ve used. I also own the 5D mkIV, 90D and 70D. The EOS R is my favorite Canon Camera. It’s not without its flaws however. The control bar was a mistake I feel. Unless it’s turned off, it will actuate it’s function if you touch it with your nose or any other part of your face. I don’t really use it. The photo to video switch requires three buttons to press. Finally, although I don’t primarily shoot video, I would have liked 120fps in 1080p and non cropped 4K, but considering it’s great image quality and price, I can’t complain too much. Overall, it’s a great option for my workflow and I fully recommend it to anyone wanting to get started into the Canon R series. I’m sure the R5 and R6 are great, but don’t overlook this gem in your search for a solid mirrorless system. I’m currently saving for another one.

There's Something About Canon

I'm just an amateur but I really enjoy this camera. The electronic viewfinder has more advantages for amateurs. You can get a great preview of your exposure, etc. before shooting in manual mode. It seems to be friendlier in that regard than the DSLR's do. I love the fact that it also has the electronic shutter which won't wear out, and that I can use the aps-c crop advantages like my 7D mark II. Very cool!

So far, so good... 4.5 stars?

By Erin

I would give it more of a 4.5 if that was possible. And maybe I'll come back and give it a 5 after I've had it longer, but I've had it less than a month right now. I do wish it had dual card slots... as many frequently lament. And there are some quirky changes from the traditional Canon body ergonomics that I can't say yet are good or bad. My first kit came with a 24-105 that didn't work... f00 right out of the box. Replacement kit came quickly and is great. I used the first camera for family candids at Christmas with an EF lens and the adapter... worked great. Loved being able to hand the camera to a family member and tell them to just tap on someone's face on the touchscreen and the camera would do the rest (focus and shoot). I was able to get in a picture with my family! I contemplated getting just the body, but my EF 24-105 is definitely my most used lens and it shows. It's also pretty old at this point, so thought it'd be good to get the new version... especially given the pre-Christmas pricing plus the extra coupon I had from B&H. I used the replacement kit with the RF lens to shoot an event gig the beginning of January and I was most impressed. I don't think I had a single out-of-focus shot except for by accident. Definitely no shots where I thought I had achieved focus only to find it was slightly off later. My flash exposures were the most even I have ever experienced shooting these same events in the same rooms with the same people over the last decade or more. I always use bounce flash and manual exposure and manual flash control... but as distance fluctuates between camera and subject while shooting candids at a reception, I will have some that get over or under exposed and I have to make an adjustment and reshoot. I didn't have to monkey around with my flash output at all with this camera... something with this processor or some feature I'm not aware of kept the exposures much more consistent from shot to shot compared to what I would have gotten doing the exact same thing with my 5D Mark III and the 600EX-RT II. A friend of mine also bought this camera but will be sending it back. Her primary reason for purchasing was to be able to use silent/electronic shutter when shooting events and speakers/performers on stage. She got the banding from LED lighting that can happen with electronic shutter, which she didn't realize would happen (not being well-versed on the way electronic shutters work and the physics of light wavelengths). We researched it and it looks like - right now - the only camera that overcomes this is the Sony A9. (Maybe future Canon mirrorless cameras will sport the faster sensor readout needed.) This shortcoming is not a problem for me and what I shoot, so I'm keeping mine... I don't have as strong a need for silent shooting and can use the mechanical shutter to avoid this issue. Anyway... for the price, I'm very pleased with my first Canon professional mirrorless camera. Would I have preferred whatever they have coming out in 2020? Sure... but I expect whatever it is to be more than 3K so this works for me now. I still have my 5D Mark III and this will complement that well. I needed a backup/secondary camera anyway as my old 1D Mark III is just too old to fit the bill anymore.

Fantastic camera + lens combo!

By Alexey
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-12-15

I consider myself advanced amateur. I moved up to this combo after being APS-C Canon shooter for many years (starting from the original Digital Rebel, then 40D, then 70D, then 80D, then M50). The mirrorless M50 opened my eyes to much better autofocus and other advantages, but I felt limited by the small body, few buttons, and short battery life. I finally decided I was ready for full-frame, and do not regret this decision. EOR R + 24-105 f/4L is everything I hoped it would be. I used the excellent APS-C 17-55 f/2.8 for many years, and the new lens is similar to it but better in all respects, and I do not feel disadvantaged by f/4. The IS on it is simply amazing. I can see that the RAW files from the R have significantly more room for editing compared to APS-C files. The final touch is that the Canon EF to R adapter (go with the Canon version, it works much better than third party versions) allows me to use some EF glass I have accumulated (50 f/1.2L, 85 f/1.8, and 70-300 f/4-5.6L), and all these lenses work even better than on a DSLR, particularly in the autofocus performance.
