EOS R7: Time to Level Up
An ideal blend of performance and portability, the EOS R7 represents Canon's move into APS-C with the mirrorless R system. Featuring a 32.5MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC X processing, this sleek powerhouse is capable of high-speed 30 fps shooting for sports and wildlife and features the renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF II focusing system to keep up with and track fast-moving subjects. And, for the multimedia image-maker, 4K video is supported at up to 60p, or 30p when oversampled from a 7K area, as well as Full HD at up to 120 fps.
32.5MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DIGIC X Processing
APS-C Comes to EOS R
Balancing resolution, speed, and low-light performance, the 32.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor is a versatile chip perfect for both photo and video applications. As one of the first APS-C sensors in the EOS R system, the R7's high-resolution design benefits photographers as well as 4K video by providing a 7K area for oversampling footage, which yields improved sharpness and quality.
DIGIC X Processor
Borrowed from the R3, the R7 sports a DIGIC X image processor to perform a variety of high-speed tasks, ranging from quick continuous shooting to high-resolution video recording. In terms of high-speed shooting, the R7 supports up to 30 fps continuous shooting with a silent electronic shutter or 15 fps with a mechanical shutter, with AF and AE readings before each frame. The processor also helps to realize a broad sensitivity range from ISO 100-32000, which is expandable up to ISO 51200 for working in difficult lighting conditions.
UHD 4K Video Recording
Beyond stills, the R7's sensor also offers high-res UHD 4K 60p internal video using the full width of the sensor and the ability to work with 10-bit sampling with Canon Log 3. A 7K recording area can also be used for oversampled 4K shooting at 30p for improved sharpness, reduced moiré, and lower noise. And, for slow-motion playback, 120p recording is supported at up to Full HD resolution.

HDR-PQ recording is possible, too, for in-camera HDR production and external recording, via the micro-HDMI port, which supports a clean 4K output at up to 60 fps. Also, unlimited recording times are possible, too, and the R7 features both mic and headphone ports, as well as a multi-function shoe for wide accessories compatibility.
Autofocus and Image Stabilization
Dual Pixel CMOS AF II
Carried over from the EOS R3, the advanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system features 651 automatic AF points that covers the entire sensor area, for faster, more responsive, and more precise focusing performance. This phase-detection focusing system also has enhanced subject detection and tracking, with the ability to intelligently recognize people, animals, and vehicles and tracking will automatically lock onto these subjects and maintain sharp focus throughout burst captures. Dual Pixel AF II's low-luminance limit focuses down to an impressive -5 EV for accurate focusing even in nighttime conditions.
Sensor-Shift Image Stabilizer
An In-Body Image Stabilizer (IBIS) corrects up to 7 stops of unwanted camera shake when shooting handheld, helping to shoot handheld in low-light conditions and reduce shake when recording videos. This 5-axis system can be also used in conjunction with lenses featuring optical image stabilization to compensate for up to 8 stops of camera shake depending on the specific lens in use.
Body Design
2.36m-Dot EVF and Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
A bright, clear 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder is featured for high-resolution eye-level viewing. This 1.15x-magnification finder is benefitted by the fast processing for virtually no lag and a quick 120-fps refresh rate can be used for vivid, realistic motion portrayal.

In addition to the EVF, a 3.0" vari-angle LCD is also available and benefits working high, low, and front-facing angles. The flexible position is complemented by a touchscreen interface and the clear 1.62m-dot resolution allows for vivid playback and live view monitoring.
Reliable and Intuitive Construction
  • Referencing the professional-grade EOS R3, the R7 is modeled after its robust physical design and sports a dust- and moisture-sealed body construction that's suitable for working in inclement conditions.
  • Redesigned rear controls include a combined AF point selector and rear control wheel, which puts two of the most oft-used controls in a single intuitive-to-reach spot.
  • Dual SD memory card slots offer file-saving flexibility and both are rated for UHS-II card speeds to support fluent 4K video recording and high-speed continuous shooting.
Flexible Connectivity
Wired and wireless connectivity options are available, allowing for multiple methods of transferring photos and videos, as well as for remotely controlling the camera. Physically, the camera features a USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 2 port along and a micro-HDMI port, along with 3.5mm headphone and microphone ports to benefit video recording. In terms of wireless, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is available for transferring and remote camera control.
Next-Generation Multi-Function Shoe
An update to a conventional hot shoe, the Multi-Function Shoe adds a row of pins at the front of the design to permit greater accessory functionality as well as provide power to select accessory types that traditionally rely on separate batteries. This updated shoe is compatible with select accessories, including the ST-E10 Speedlite Transmitter, DM-E1D Stereo Microphone, and AD-P1 Smartphone Link Adapter, as well as the AD-E1 Multi-Function Shoe Adapter to provide compatibility with legacy shoe-mounted accessories.

Canon R7 Reviews

R7 Resolution

By Richard
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-05-22

I added the R7 for the resolution and crop factor. I love my R6, it has much better ISO performance but heavy crops leave my photos lacking. I love that my RF 100-500 becomes a 160-800 mm on the R7 without using my 1.4 TC and sacrificing two f-stops___ Both bodies have their specialties...

This camera is amazing for bird photography. The AF tracking is the best I've ever used. It's lightweight compared to my R5, easy to a long around with super zoom lenses.

The quality is excellent for a camera within the price range. A real value for the many features. I really like the RAW The only drawbacks are the lack of a battery grip and the sound of the shutter. I like to use the mechanical shutter but will most likely be using the electronic shutter more often. The RAW Burst works very well.

Very Pleased with the results - and when I'm not, it's me.

Where do I begin? I did documentary film school back in the mid 2000s, learned a lot about setting up and doing interviews, but never learned how to really run and gun without having set everything up. Now I'm trying to do that with the r7.. lots of work. Having only worked with prosumer video cams before, there is much here that is different that will take me months to figure out. Still the little A function on the selector seems to take care of much of it, but trying to learn how to shoot in manual and get the desired results. So many buttons and my mind will take so long to remember which is which as I have a rubber shield over the camera. I think for most people, they would have an expensive door stop unless they want to put in the time.. I'm trying but I know I will be leaning this camera for the next year.

Hmmmmm...not impressed

I replaced a 90D (no issues) with this camera and have regretted it. Using the camera for streaming and recording videocast through VMix and separately as my Zoom platform camera. Using with Canon coupler battery, Sigma lens and canon mount. Something shorted within a few months of use (not using every day). Canon indicated that my setup was feasible. Sent to repair and board was replaced. 2 months after repair it is being finicky again about powering on - previous symptoms before repair. Lifted it from the desk this morning and the body is warm but it's not on or near any heat source. Hmmmm...another call with Canon.

R7… Way better than I imagined!

By Gary124301

First of all this is my first canon R mirrorless camera. I am coming from years of using a 5D Mark IV and 7D Mark II and their predecessors. To me it was like going from my AE-1 film camera to my first digital camera. Quite honestly, I am still a little bit shell shocked by how good this little camera is for the price. I was dreaming that this camera might make my older EF 200mm 2.8Lii lens into a killing machine. I didn't expect it to actually do it and the same with all my other EF lenses. The In-camera image stabilization is far better than I could have possibly imagined. I mean that same 200mm can take great photos indoors at 1/30th of a second with this APS-C sensor. Image quality is far better than I expected. The Eye AF and autofocus is a game changer with Wildlife and birds in flight. It does have its limitations and struggles at times with bright skies and heavy branches and just plain misses it completely at times, but when it works correctly……. it is amazing. In the past two weeks I have taken over 20,000 images of mostly birds and it just feels like cheating. It's that good. Of course it is not perfect and has several deficient areas that other more expensive cameras don't have. But for me, it just makes me smile. Not just sometimes, but nearly all the time! Probably my biggest two surprises with the R7 were was just how clean the images are right out of the camera. Thus low noise at higher ISO and Jpeg quality. Both much better than expected. I usually shoot Raw on one card and Jpeg on the other. Sometimes the jpegs are just so good and clean processing through the newer version of DPP that I just use as is. That was a rare, if ever, case with the 7D2, but more often with the 5D4. I do find that landscape images with the R7 often times need much more processing to improve shadows and highlights. No big surprise there, however. Anyway, ISO values of up to 6400 I can make useful at times. 3200 most of the time and 1600 all the time. This is about par with what I achieved most of the time with the 5D4. The 7D2 was 1600 sometimes and 800 all the time. I just don’t remember the DPP software being this good with my other cameras. Pros: • IBIS • Eye AF and it's AF in general • 15/30 fps • No micro-focusing adjustments anymore • Adjustable screen • Lightweight • Excellent results on some EF lenses (35 F2 IS, 100L 2.8 macro, 200L 2.8ii, 100-400ii L, 24-70L F4 • Excellent Image Quality • Cropping ability with 32.5 mp sensor • Completely quiet electronic shutter • ISO can go up to 6400 straight out of the camera and downloaded to DPP 3200 on most other applications (This is probably my biggest surprise). • Really good in camera jpegs. Especially when processed with DPP (another really big surprise) Cons: • Small and very slightly recessed buttons (downside of being small) • Screen blackout on slow shutter speeds • AF for birds in bright skies, wildly focuses at times • Electronic shutter warping at high speeds. Although I find about half are useable so not completely a con. • And of course the limited buffer, but I can deal with that by feathering my shutter release. But no excuses here, it should be better. • EVF/Display screen can bounce back and forth with corrective lenses at times. • Seems to completely lose focus on distant objects/birds unless assisted with manually focusing. So in summary…..Canon really nailed this one. Is it perfect? No. Is it really, really good? Yes. In fact, it is just way better than I possibly thought it could be. It has been a joy to use in my rather limited time with it.

Worst Camera ever

I was excited to get my first mirrorless canon camera. As a 12 year canon camera user I have to say that i have never been son disappointed. This cameras focus is awful and the photos are no even close to being as good as they were with my 7D. If i could give this camera a negative star I would. This was a wast of money. Wish I could send it back.

can you explain to me r7 a cropped sensor with 32 mg and the r6 a full-frame sensor with only 20mg how does final image compare compare?....thanks
Asked by: David
The R6 full frame sensor offers better quality in low light and high dynamic range. There is less noise or grain in the image at high ISO in the R6. The R7 has higher resolution so it allows you to zoom in digitally in the image and crop more than the R6 allows.
