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

The R7 takes amazing photos and tracking is fantastic. I just wish the buffer was bigger. It is also taking some time getting use to the new controls design. I also have the R5 and I wish they had kept the same layout. The added reach of the crop sensor is a huge plus when using the RF100-500. It gives me 160-800mm and have full use of the zoom range. I find myself using my extender less and less.

I shot with a Canon FT-QL 35mm SLR for 35 years (1968 to 2003) before going to DSLRs. Even the crop sensor EOS Rebel DSLRs dwarfed my FT-QL in size and weight, but they were more capable. Moved to the 70D and then 80D, and finally got my R7 yesterday. It feels like coming home - a modern camera about the same size as the FT-QL, but even more capable than my 80D. Didn't want the kit lens, since I already have the EF-S 18-135 nano USM, but buying the kit was the only way to get the camera, since the body only option has been put on minimal allotments by Canon. Now that I've experimented with the RF-S 18-150. I like it. I'll still keep the nano USM to use with the power zoom adapter, but for walk-around shooting, the R7 kit is perfect.

I have been field testing my new R7 for several weeks now. I usually shoot with it paired to a 100mm-400mm lens. This camera is the best innovation in auto focusing I have ever witnessed. The AF is quick. But what is truly amazing is how it will lock onto a subjects eye, and then track whatever you are trying to shoot. I have previously used a 90D and this camera is light years a head of it.

Good camera but missing newer sensor tech

I took a star off for 2 reasons. The first is the sensor. I would rather have paid more and it at least be a BSI sensor to reduce the noise in RAW files. A stacked sensor with faster readout would have helped with the rolling shutter in the electronic shutter mode. The second reason is for the lack of support for a vertical grip to provide vertical oriented controls and the use of two batteries. For what it is, given the two issues above, it is still a good camera when you need that extra 1.6x crop factor. It pairs especially well with the RF 24-240mm for an effective range of approximately 38-380mm in one lens with good image quality.

Purchased this camera for wildlife shooting. I have been shooting with the R5. Even though I have a couple of long lenses, I wasn't getting close enough. Enter the R7. Love the extended reach that this crop sensor provides. Also love the weight and size reduction over the all ready smaller and lighter R5 (than the EOS 5D4 and 7D) . Was hoping that the focusing system was as good as the R5. In my opinion, it's better. Although the sensor is way better and denser than the EOS 7D, I'm not thrilled with it. Will admit that the 32.5MP is nice. I was shooting with the silent electric shutter and didn't realize that I had shot so many frames on my 2 hour trip to the park. I was amazed that upon checking out the pics on the computer; the first 50 or so were tack sharp. I'm not going to say that the rest of the 3,000 images shot that day had the same hit rate but, it was pretty good. The different positioning of the controls than the R5 is a bit challenging. Although I love this camera, I wish it had a better sensor; thus four stars.

Fast and light

I bought this camera to take the leap from DSLR to mirrorless. I was really lucky to receive this camera before my honeymoon. I took it over my 5d Mark III due to its weight and size and I am glad I did. This camera was a great tool to document my wife and my adventure from Niagara Falls to Acadia National Park. It was not overly cumbersome and the 18-150mm actually worked great. The lens is not particularly good in low light but I also got the 50mm f/1.8 for that reason. The only challenge the camera had itself was with the autofocusing system. It was great when it worked (which was about 90% of the time) and I was truly impressed at how it was able to capture a bird's eye. I did not change much from using the whole area autofocus which made it difficult for the camera to discern my desired subject. Overall, I would recommend this camera to anyone looking to take that leap into mirrorless and would be happy to share any answers to questions you may have.

Truly amazing

I decided to retire my 10 year old Canon 70D and try this. Truly, it was love at first click. The autofocus is terrific and the sharpness of my photos really made me gasp. I paired it with the EOS lens converter and it worked beautifully. The only slight glitch I had was with the Lensbaby lens. The shutter would not release, so I googled the problem and found out you have to enable the option to release the shutter without a lens. Problem solved. I have an Olympus mirrorless so I was familiar with the menus - I did find the Canon menus simpler and better arranged than the Olympus menus. Plus I love having the touch screen.

So far, a very good action, crop sensor camera. I find the tracking capabilities and burst shutter speed to be very good. While I have only had the camera for a week or so, the initial tests are very good. The images below were taken with the EOSR7 and new 800mm F/11 Lens, hand held from a Hotel Balcony. The boat pictures were of boats nearly a mile away. The helicopter flew over the beach, right past our balconey. Each shot shows the focus point right where it should be.

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.
