EOS R10: Compact and Capable, for Content Creators
Emphasizing portability without sacrificing on capability, the Canon EOS R10 is a sleek mirrorless camera with a hybrid ethos. Adept in both photo and video worlds, the R10 brings an APS-C sensor to the R system, along with high-speed shooting, intelligent AF, and impressive 4K video recording to complement a multimedia workflow.
24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DIGIC X Processing
APS-C Comes to EOS R
Sitting at a sweet-spot in terms of resolution, the 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor strikes a fine balance between resolution, file size, speed, and low-light performance. This sensor is suitable for general photo tasks along with UHD 4K recording, as the file sizes are manageable enough to allow for quick continuous burst shooting and extended video recording.
DIGIC X Processor
Borrowed from the R3, the R10 sports a DIGIC X image processor to perform a variety of high-speed tasks, ranging from continuous shooting to high-resolution video recording. In terms of high-speed shooting, the R10 supports up to 23 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 R10's sensor also offers high-res UHD 4K 8-bit recording, with the ability to record at up to 60p using a cropped portion of the sensor or at 30p when using an oversampled 6K recording area 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 in 10-bit and external recording, via the micro-HDMI port, which supports a clean 4K output. Also, unlimited recording times are possible, too, and the R10 features an external microphone port as well as a multi-function shoe for wide accessories compatibility.
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 -4 EV for accurate focusing even in nighttime conditions.
Body Design
Intuitive Construction
  • Bright, clear 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder is featured for high-resolution eye-level viewing. This 0.95x-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.
  • 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 1.04m-dot resolution allows for vivid playback and live view monitoring.
  • Single SD memory card slot is 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 port along and a micro-HDMI port, as well as a 3.5mm microphone port 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 R10 Reviews

Small camera forces odd grip, challenging control.

By Michael
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2023-02-26

I bought a couple of these for our Photo Department. Small, light, powerful. The R10, and adapters, are the beginning of our transition to Mirrorless from a pretty well-established Canon/Nikon DSLR system of bodies and lenses. I have lots of experience with 1, 10D, 60D, 70D and all the Rebels. I first played with the 16mm f2.8; light if nothing else. Tossed on a 24-70 2.8 and an adapter for a shoot with a few students of a political rally. I had few goals and almost no pressure to perform; I was there for support. It gave me a lot of time to sort the machine out. Controls take a bit of time to locate and understand; the focusing system will take some time, but, it's just a camera. Custom White Balance was a snap. I found out that I really don't like the floppy screen; very awkward when trying to hold the camera to get above the crowd, it hits the left wrist. Similar problem when held below as well. I'm a 6-footer with somewhat slender hands and the camera was not comfortble to hold. The most annoying thing was that the right hand's thenar, the fleshy pad at the heel of the thumb, kept hitting the light/flash button on the right of the right side of the Cross Keys, bringing unwanted info on to the screen when trying to focus or compose. If you are busy this is distracting. This may be a function of a small camera and a relatively heavy lens with fairly normal-sized hands. This forced a grip where that the heel of the hand ends up wrapping around the lower right corner of the body. The thumb must reach to the top of the camera near the Control Wheel for grip/control forcing the thenar into contact with the button. Perhaps a taller body would make a difference. A 3-finger grip, though, forces the rest of the hand into an odd place. That is just stupid ergonomics but might just be my problem. I will rethink buying such a camera again unless the new Mirrorless Rebel is worse. I certainly would not buy it for myself. In fairness, while I long for a light /small camera, the reality of their functionality is starting to be understood. I will continue to search.

Coming from the Canon m50 mark ii is a true upgrade. I'm a hobbyist Photographer so full frame is not appealing to me and this camera fits the entire bill.

Powerful and Versatile

By Joseph
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-12-22

Versatile (good for stills, fast action and distance photography), can use all EF and EF-S lenses with the EF to RF adapter and all the RF lenses, small, lightweight, and a bit more or less than $1K depending on the configuration. The 18-150 lens offers superb range. This camera is simply fun to use, easy to handle, and produces nice results.

Great Lightweight Camera for the price

The R10 is a small and Lightweight Camera that's great for fast Action sports like High School Basketball and Wrestling. The autofocus is fantastic for Tracking a Basketball player or a Bird. I bought this Camera for taking action sports photos and for Wildlife photography. The fps is great for fast action and even at a high ISO I used 12,800 with my Canon EF 100 mm L 2.8 lens, see the photos in this review. Fast free shipping with B&H all at a great price. Loyal customer for 30 years.

Great value

What it does for the price is amazing. There are some frustrating limitations when it comes to video but again . . . for the price, it's amazing. My advice is make sure it handles everything you need before you get it. You may find the R7, or R6, or even the R5 are better suited to your needs.

Keeping up with technology is never easy. This camera has made that exciting. Canon certainly has a winner with this mirrorless camera. We've been using Canon for many years and this R10 is great for our travel requirements and has never disappointed. Easy to use and light weight.

Very Happy with it, I have one little gripe, but this is my 1st camera

By Mcomeau334
Rated 4 out of 5

So, this camera has been great so far. This is the 1st camera I’ve purchased for myself. So obviously, I’m not well versed. I have used DSLR’s, and do a lot of “drone photography”, so I do actually understand some of the basics. I started shouting with “Auto”, but quickly started tinkering with “Manual” mode, and even set my “custom dial” C1 & C2 to some decent settings. My only real “gripe” is that if you enable HDR, you can’t save that to a custom mode. It has to be turned off before it lets you. I figured that I would be able to re-map a button to quickly get to the HDR settings, but again, a roadblock. I know a lot of people don’t use HDR, and maybe in the future I won’t either, but I really wish I could turn it on, without having to jump through a bunch of settings. That being said, I’m extremely excited to use this camera, and so far, I’ve loved the outcome of the photos.

Nice camera to join the mirrorless co

I bought this camera for my grandbaby as she loves to go with me on my shoots. and we both loved and was very surprised of the quality of picture we got out of it. I actually was comparing it to my R5 that I was shooting with, and I could not tell a difference in quality. It is a little small for my hands but perfect for hers. With large lens it is a little tight for me but smaller lens it feels pretty good for me. I will certainly recommend this camera for anyone that want to test the mirrorless world. There was a guy shooting with a Sony Alpha A6400 and he loved the colors that was coming out of this camera more even thou his picture were very clear as well.

You would need an adapter for Canon RF lenses to use this camera with a telescope--it works in the same way as the T5, but you need the specific adapter for RF, not EF, cameras.
