Helping to extend your shooting sessions, the Canon EOS R Mirrorless Camera with Battery Grip Kit from B&H bundles the full-frame mirrorless body with the BG-E22 Battery Grip, a memory card, a spare battery, a lens care kit, and a protective camera bag.

Canon EOS R Mirrorless Camera

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.

I am write now for had the EOS R now for 3 yrs. Purchase from my go to candy store B&H. Was a upgrade from my Canon EOS 5D M III. Wanted to get into the mirrorless game and the change is amazing. Overall wt & size, ergonomics make it a plus, than the 30 megapixel matched with the DIGIC 8 processor creates amazing shoots. I do photo's only so not going to say anythingabout the video function though I have taken some and there fun to watch. The draw backs, in very low light autofocus searches, and Battery life you get about 80_100 shots in, I turn power off when not clicking, finally extreme cold in the 20 deg or below baby needs its own puffer jacket, if not you get several shots in and it's worm up time. I Shoot moving, stationary subjects, architecture, as well as mount to telescope for interstellar shoots I am always blown away from the results. Lens, I have a trove L series EF glass that with a adapter makes the world look beautiful. Honestly can't say anything bad about the EOS R. One more not have had two hard drops (stupid me) but still working it's magic, want to say the heavy grade aluminum Tripod L bracket I installed saved the day. B&H, I been a customer since being on 17th St. & 6th buying film and developer since a AP photographer in my building gave me Canon FTBn that was 40 yrs ago.

Great camera!

EOS R is a fantastic camera

I had the EOS RP and wanted a second body. I opted for the EOS R over the R3, R5 and R6 because, dedpite financial considerations, I am a still photographer. I would never shoot video. Also I don't shoot sports or fast action needing super high burst modes. I opted for the R because its been out for foyr years. All the bugs have been worked out. Love the imprived body over the RP. The magnesium, the weather proofing, and - most importantly - the sensor! At its core, the EOS R has the same high- resolution, 30.3MP (megapixel), full-frame CMOS sensor found in the Canon 5D Mark IV. The sensor, combined with the speedy DIGIC 8 image processor, helps make the EOS R a most powerful camera. With the same sensor, you are getting the image quality of the EOS 5D Mark IV, but for a more attractive price. Highly recommended!

I researched cameras before I bought this one. It's been so many years since I've done photography, now I'm re-learning it the mirrorless, digital way. I'm taking photography classes and the more I learn, I learn the amazing things that this camera can do and I just can't wait to learn more. The things that this camera offers is just astounding. #lovemyeosr November 2022

Portrait Photo with the Canon EOS R Camera. I used this camera for few Day's. I have owned the Canon EOS 5D MARK II, MARK III MARK IV. You guessed correct, I am a Canon fan boy. Menu is easy to use. So far I am very pleased with the image quality. I would say the image is slightly better then the Canon 5D MARK IV. I have also used it for my kids soccer game, and kept focus and images exceeding my expectation. The handling of the Canon EOS R is comfortable in the hands I did add the BG E22 Grip. The BG E22 grip enhanced the hold and feel of the Canon EOS R. I uploaded images for your viewing . I will let you be the judge. I am very happy with this camera. I also bought the RF TO EF Mount, at the moment I am still using all my EF lenses with this Body. It is a nice system for the Price and the features. I have disabled the slide pad. And I rest my thump on it, I could not get use to the slide so it is disabled. Still not a deal breaker for me.

Great Photo Capability in More Compact Package

This review is from someone who started out with a Pentax Spotmatic in the 1970's and I am still trying to get a full grip around all the features in today's digital cameras. First thing is that the EOS R camera is a technological wonder and I doubt I will ever master everything. I got it to replace my Canon EOS 7D and 5D cameras which seemed to get heavier and heavier every time I picked them up. I wanted a smaller, lighter camera that I could take on road trips, overseas travel, hiking and camping venues. Many of the control features on the R are similar to the 5D, but it will be a learning experience to find them all. Frankly, the technical writers at Canon need a refresher course in how to explain how things work on the R camera. In my opinion, the provided manual and the downloadable comprehensive advanced manual are both virtually unusable. The manuals have you switching back and forth between the written and web based information which simply adds to the confusion. Trying to make this work in the field is not possible. The illustrations and photos provided in the manuals are tiny and rarely enlighten. My suggestion is to get a third party manual if you want to get a quick understanding of how this camera works. Most of these third party manuals are by professional writers who are technically competent and understand the adult learning process. I also bought the EOS EF to R lens adapter since I have a number of the older EF lenses. The adapter works well in facilitating communications between the lens and camera body, but understand that it adds weight and acts like a 1 inch extension tube to whatever lens you are using. I will likely get some RF lenses in the future as I am told they have superior sharpness due to their design. I am still exploring the EOS R controls, but the basic functions are easy to master. My main motivation for getting this camera is reducing the weight and bulk in carrying around a high quality full featured digital camera. The EOS R fits the bill.

Really enjoying it!

I was really torn about going mirrorless, and also about sticking with the Canon lineup. I gave alot of thought to the Nikon Z6ii with its great time lapse capability, in camera focus stacking and intervalometer, and the appealing Nikon 20mm I could put on it. I gave ALOT of thought to both the Z6ii and the Canon R! What finally made me pull the trigger for the R was the articulated screen, the ability to continue to use my Sigma Art lenses with the adapter, and the good astro reviews I was reading about the R. Let me tell you, I am DELIGHTED with my purchase. The articulated touch screen is a GEM. I can shoot however low I want to now, since it was getting a little hard for me to be on my knees or on the ground for those low shots I wanted to capture. Focusing on the stars is easy as pie, the touch screen is very responsive, and the camera is a charm to work in the dark....a lot better than my 6d. Heck, I have been using my 6d for years and years, and I still fumble around in the dark with its buttons. No more with the R. There are few buttons on the back to deal with. Dials are easy to use when I want to use them, and the touchscreen. I have captured the both the Milky Way and multiple aurora storms since having bought the camera. Happy with the captures and LOVE watching the aurora on the touchscreen. Honestly, I have a really hard time picking up my 6d as my back up camera now. If you are an astrophotographer, don't be afraid of picking up the well-oiled Canon EOS R. No regrets from this nightscape photographer!

What is the difference between the $500 for the battery grip and a KO battery when you have the battery grip available for $375? Want to make sure it's the same item.
Asked by: Jaime
Sorry, but we are not sure what you are asking. The Canon BG-E22 Battery Grip B&H # CABGE22 is the only Canon grip that will fit the EOS R camera. If you have further questions, please email us. [email protected]

Asked by: NICHOLAS
4:2:0. There is no 4:2:2 internal. You'd need an external recorder for that.

Can I use Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM ...

Can I use Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens directly on this camera?
Asked by: RENJAN
Directly, no. Completely different lens mount, this body uses RF lenses natively. There are lens mount adapters (that will allow you to attach your EF lens to the RF mount on the camera). But I'm not sure if it is justified to buy a lens mount adapter to use this one EF-S lens. Cheapest Canon adapter is $99 (adapters with more features cost more). This would make sense if you have a collection of several EF or EF-S lenses. But if you just have the one, I'd say you are just better off upgrading to a comparable RF lens to use with the R body. You'll be yearning to, anyway (if you buy an R body) since the native RF lenses auto-focus faster than their adapted counterparts, and you ditch the extra weight and length of the adapter. Plus, your particular lens (as previous answer mentioned) is for crop sensor cameras. So your lens (adapted) would not be utilizing the full potential of the full frame sensor on the R body.
