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

Great Mirrorless Camera

By Paul
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-24

This is the first mirrorless camera I've bought. I purposely waited a while as I use a 5Ds for landscapes and travel that I love (the size doesn't bother me). I liked the idea of getting back to wildlife and sports photography so I went ahead and picked it up the R7. So far the camera is really great. I used it for my cousin's JV volley ball tournament with the EF 70-200 f/2.8LII and it was great. The AF is really fast, the tracking works very well, and I didn't find the noise bad at all for higher ISO images. If you buy this as a second body to an R5 or R6 you might be a little disappointed but for what the camera is, it really is quite nice. EF lenses with the adapter work very, very well with no loss in AF speed or image quality as far as I can tell. I walked around and took a few nature images as well and they look good as far as I'm concerned. I don't think you can go wrong with the R7 for the price and features.

I shot with DSLRs for years and this camera has a little bit of a learning curve. (961 page manual). I' very pleased with the image quality. The noise isn't as bad as I anticipated. Buffering doesn't seem to be a big problem when shooting C-RAW. The Canon DPP4 software for this camera has acquired a little AI. You can see the noise soften in the background as the subject sharpens. I'm including images shot with three lenses. EF100-400 II, Tamron 150-600 G2, and the 18-150 kit lens.

Great for birds and animals.

I gave in and purchased the camera and lens package because it was available. I purchased this camera as a animal and birding camera because of the fast frames per second, and eye detection. I have not been disappointed. I planed on using all my EOS L lenses, and a was surprised at the kit lens. I use it as a nice light walk around lens.

Birding camera.

I've been shooting Nikon for years but wanted to go mirrorless and this new Canon offered so much more than anything Nikon had to offer for the same price. I've been using it for about a week and love it. I'm glad I made the switch.

This camera fits my hand like a glove. Love how light weight it is. Love the smaller size. The focus system is amazing! We'll done, Canon!

R5/R6 Slimmed Down

By Dale G
Rated 5 out of 5

This is an affordable Mirrorless option for those not needing or wanting a high price tag. It's also a great option for R5 or R6 owners needing a second body too. I has most of the quick focusing and sharp photos you get in big boys, but on a crop sensor. Pluses : ~ half the $$$ of an R5; The crop sensor increases the effective focal distance of full frame lens by the crop factor of 1.6X; less expensive SD cards, light and comfortable, but a little small for large hands; Sam batteries as the R5, R6 and you can use batteries from earlier DSLRs like 6Ds and 5D series cameras. Minuses: Does not have the third knob (on my R5, you can use it to control ISO etc.) and a different control knob and dial configuration (takes some getting used to.); Currently no extended grip is available for extra battery life and better holding of larger hands. The last minus to me is the crop sensor although more pixels, is more sensitive to high ISOs above 6400 In short; a great camera for the money and Yes, I'd buy it again!

Great camera but card read errors

By Al
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-23

I purchased the R7 through B&H less than 2 weeks before a month long trip to Africa, to replace my 90D since I had strict weight limits for luggage. B&H provided their usual great customer service in shipping it to me rapidly. Overall I love the camera, and took thousands of excellent photos with it. The eye focus AF is excellent, but quirky. Sometimes it works incredibly well, and in other scenarios would not detect eyes, even when they were obvious. Also, the second SD card slot frequently had an error code that states it can't recognize the SD card, so either re-format it or turn the camera off and back on. This happened several times daily, with 8 different SD cards, and currently I have sent the camera back to Canon for service. Unfortunately, when doing wildlife photography in the field the time lost restarting your camera or swapping out SD cards means losing opportunities! The 100-400 RF 5.6-8.0 telephoto lens is suprisingly good and a good travel weight when every ounce counts. The 18-150 kit lens gives acceptable images once they're cleaned up. Once the SD card issue is fixed I would rate the camera 5 stars.

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.
