Canon Unveils EOS R7 and R10 Mirrorless APS-C Cameras With 4K Video Recording
Canon introduced Tuesday its EOS R7 and EOS R10 APS-C format mirrorless cameras targeting serious and amatuer photograpers looking to step up the quality of their work.
The Canon EOS R7 features 32 megapixel (MP) resolution, while the more compact EOS R10 offers 24MP resolution. Both models are compatible with Canon’s RF lens mount system optimized for use the cameras’ APS-C CMOS sensors, but Canon said the new lenses will work with any Canon R-series camera mount.
The Canon EOS R7 camera body will be available for $1,499 with kit options bunding the camera with a new Canon RF-S18-150mm lens F3.5-6.3 IS STM zoom lens for $1,899.
The EOS R10 will be available (body-only) at a $979 suggested retail price, with kit options bundling a new 18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM zoom lens ($1,099 lens and camera) or the 18–150mm F3.5–6.3 IS STM for ($1379).
Canon said all of the products will be available either bundled or separately beginning in late 2022.
Both carmeras utilize the same subject-detection autofocus (AF) system of the popular Canon EOS R3, and include up to a 15 frames per second (FPS) mechanical shutter, and both models are the first Canon APS-C cameras with up to 7.0 stops of Coordinated Image Stabilization.
The Canon EOS 7 is positioned as ideal for new photographers looking to advance their skills from camera phones or point-and-shoots. It adds designed as a high-level camera that is easy to use with a number of advanced features including a new multifunction shoe.
Other feature additions found in the EOS R7 model include dual memory card slots, full-width 4K video recording at up to 60p as well as 30p and 24p; up to 30 fps burst shooting with an electronic shutter, dust and moisture resistance and in-body image stabilization.
The R7 will also capture high quality HDR PQ images, with the addition of C-Log 3 footage support.
Both cameras also employ the same 2.36M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder. The 3-inch fully articulating monitors on the back of each model differ slightly, with the the EOS R7 featuring a 1.62M-dot (900 x 600 pixel) fully-articulating touchscreen, while the R10 uses 1.04M-dot version.
The Canon EOS R10 is positioned as an option for content creators looking to capture high-quality action videos and images of sports, wildlife, and motorsports, the company said. The mid-range APS-C mirrorless camera features a 24MP CMOS sensor and Dual Pixel AF.
Like the R7, the R10 will capture photos at up to 15 fps (23 fps with the e-shutter), or capture 4K/30p oversampled video using the full width of the sensor. Users also have the option of recording video at up to 4K/60p with a 1.56x crop.
The R10 will capture 10-bit HDR PQ video, but doesn’t offer the C-Log 3 option of the EOS R7.
The autofocus systems of both models are very similar. Both feature upgraded algorithms derived from the EOS R3 full-frame mirrorless camera, and offer dedicated modes to track animals, people and vehicles, using the full array of AF area modes.
Several new scene modes have been added, including a focus stacking mode, a panorama mode and a panning mode to intelligently select a shutter speed that will minimize blur and keep subjects sharp.
The smaller R10 includes a single UHS-II SD card slot, as well as a 3.5mm microphone jack, and micro HDMI port. It does not support a headphone socket.
The R10 uses a standard Canon LP-E17 battery while the R7 uses an LP-E6NH battery.
In addition to the EOS R7 and R10 camera bodies, Canon introduced new RF-S lenses, including a series of RF-mount lenses optimized for the smaller APS-C sensor size of the new EOS R camera system.
Marked as the RF-S18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM lenses, that will be the standard zoom lenses for the EOS R7 and EOS R10 cameras. The RF-S 18-45mm provides an 18-45mm focal length, with a field of view equivalent to 29-72mm lens coverage on a 35mm-equivalent full-frame camera. The RF-S18-150mm lens is a longer-range standard zoom, equivalent to 29-240mm lens coverage on a full frame model.
The RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM lens will be available separately for a $479 expected retail price, while the RF-S18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM lens will run$299.99.
