Canon EOS Ra Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)
Key Features
  • Optimized for Astrophotography
  • IR-Cut Filter Passes H-Alpha Wavelength
  • 30x Magnification for Focus in Live View
  • 30.3MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
Developed specifically for those looking to photograph the night sky, the Canon EOS Ra is a modified version of the original EOS R that incorporates an optical IR cut filter in front of the sensor for photographing distant nebulae and other astronomical phenomena with utmost clarity. By updating the EOS R's design with a dedicated filter, the EOS Ra provides approximately 4x improved transmission and sensitivity to H-alpha (656.28nm) wavelengths for depicting nebulae and other subjects without unwanted infrared contamination for greater color neutrality. Additionally, a 30x live view magnification setting has also been added for improved focusing precision on distant subjects when working with either the EVF or rear LCD. Beyond these couple distinctions, the EOS Ra and EOS R feature the same set of core features to produce high resolution, well-detailed imagery.

Does the Canon Ra sensor filter out IR light? Is the sensor essentially full spectrum? That is, could it be used for IR photography?
Asked by: Rob
The Canon EOS Ra Mirrorless Digital Camera is sensitive to some infrared wavelengths (specifically, light emission at the near infrared wavelength of 656nm for H-alpha radiation), but it is not a full-spectrum sensor designed for recording the entirety of infrared and ultraviolent wavelengths. The Canon EOS Ra is not simply an infrared camera and is designed for astrophotography usage, and is not designed for scientific or creative infrared photography.

hi, does the camera have internal cooling? Can I use conventional Canon EF lenses? Can I shoot planets with the Canon EOS Ra? Thank you
Asked by: Isaac
You can use EF lenses with this adapter https://bhpho.to/2GedYdt. Shooting planets will depend on which lens or telescope you are using with it. It is not internally cooled.

Can this be used as a conventional camera as well? What would be the downsides, if any?
Asked by: David
Just add an IR-cut clip-in filter and you should be good.
