      News

    Without the never-ending guesses and speculations, almost secretly, a full-frame mirrorless Canon EOS R camera had its premiere in Nobu hotel in London. Together with the new body, four lenses and a number of additional accessories also had their debuts.

     

    The CMOS sensor of the new Canon has 30.3MP and it is supported by the DIGIC 8 processor. The ISO range is 100 – 40,000, with a possibility of extension to ISO 50 - 51200. During continuous shooting the camera's speed will amount to 8f/s. The system called “Digital Lens Optimator” should take care of aberration correction by sending information from the lens to the camera's body. EOS R is a speed demon when it comes to AF, it adjusts sharpness in 0.05s and the number of settings combinations amounts to 5655 autofocus points, thanks to the “drag and drop function” on the touch screen - Touch And Drag AF. Focus adjustment should work up to -6EV.

    Canon EOS R is equipped with an electronic OLED viewfinder with the resolution of 3.69 million points, 0.76× zoom and the eyepoint of 23mm. At the back wall there is a 3.2'' LCD screen with the resolution of 2.1 million points – the screen is a touch one and it can be rotated. Still, we will not find the AF joystick, the PASM knob, the mode lever as well as the knob known from the producer's reflex cameras.

     

    The camera can register videos in 4K with the speed of 30f/s, with the C-Log profile and it sends 10-bit signal with 4:2:2 sampling through HDMI. EOS R has been sealed so you can photograph with the use of it in hard weather conditions. It can also work completely silently in the “Silent LV Shooting” mode.

    A complete novelty of new Canon is the Multifunctional Touch Bar – a bar next to the viewfinder which can be touched or moved with your finger, allowing instant modification of a chosen camera function. The camera's Bluetooth is always on, which should have an impact on the battery's durability. If we're talking about power supply, the new BG-E22 grip will hold two LP-E6N batteries and it will be able to fulfill the function of the USB charger. Another novelty presented together with the camera is Canon Speedlite EL- 100 flash light, with a possibility of reflecting light from the walls and the ceiling.

    The four presented lenses are as follows: RF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM, RF 28–70mm f/2L USM, RF 35mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM and ER 50mm f/1.2L USM. The bayonet's diameter of the new RF system is 54mm and the optical glass is 20mm from the sensor. All lenses have an additional multifunctional ring which facilitates control over the system. Together with the lenses, three adapters, enabling mounting EF and EF-S lenses on new mirrorless Canon cameras, were presented. One of the adapters is equipped with a ring fulfilling a function similar to the ring which can be found in the new lenses, the other one enables the use of inserted polarizing or gray filters.

    4). Canon EOS R

     

    Canon EOS R body will cost $2200. In a set with the 24-105mm f/4L lens, the price will rise to $3,399. Three of the presented lenses will be available in December and their prices will amount to (approximately): 

     

    Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM - $3000

    Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM - $1100

    Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM - $500

    Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM will appear on sale next month and it will cost $2999.

      DESCRIPTION
      Canon EOS R is the first mirrorless camera in the Canon’s offer with the full-frame sensor. The camera is equipped with the 30.3MP CMOS sensor supported by the latest-generation DIGIC 8 processor. This set enables taking photographs within the ISO range of 100 - 40000 (extendable to ISO 50-102400) and it is based on a new RAW motor which saves photographs in the CR3 format.

      What’s more, we also get a well-known Dual Pixel AF system which was well-rated during the tests and which is to become even more effective than it used to be thanks to 5655 AF points, which cover 100% of the frame horizontally and 80% vertically and which are, additionally, sensitive up to -6 EV. There is also a support of the eye-tracking function which should also work in the C-AF mode in the future.

      Canon EOS R is equipped with the OLED electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 3.69MP, 0,76× zoom and the eye-point of 23mm. It will be possible to see image preview also with the use of the 3.2’’ rotating touch screen with the resolution of 2.1 million points.

      In the continuous shooting mode, the photographs can be saved with the speed of 8f/s. It is also worth mentioning that this speed is only offered in the single mode. If we decide to use the continuous AF-C measurement, the speed of the continuous shooting will decrease to 5f/s. We will save 47 RAW photographs, 78 C-RAW photographs and 100 JPEG files in the buffer. The Silent LV Shooting Mode is also available.

      Canon EOS R records films with the maximum quality of 4K, with the speed of 30f/s; in the ALL-i and IPB standards – with the bit rate of 480Mb/s or 120Mb/s. We will also be able to use flat image profile C-Log and externally record 10-bit material with 4:2:2 sampling, with the use of the HDMI connector. Apart from that, in the C-Log profile we will save materials on the card, but here only the 8-bit 4:2:0 save is available. Unfortunately, the camera records with the crop factor of 1,7×. What’s more, the new Canon records in Full HD with the speed of 60f/s and in HD with the speed of 120f/s, which can be a little disappointment.

      The control of main functions is based on two knobs on the upper panel and on the original multi-function touch panel next to the viewfinder. The panel recognizes three types of movements (touch from the left side, touch from the right side and finger dragging) and it enables fast control of autofocus settings or other functions assigned to it. We also have a new Fv work mode in which we can quickly switch between the aperture-priority mode and the shutter-priority mode as well as easily activate and deactivate the Auto ISO function.

      On one charge, Canon EOS R takes only 370 shots (according to the CIPA standard). Other limitations of the camera include a lack of the AF joystick, the PASM knob, the mode lever and a convenient, big back knob known from other refle× cameras of the producer.
