After many rumors, Canon finally jumped into the world of full-frame mirrorless with the EOS R camera. The company already has the Canon EOS M series of APS-C mirrorless cameras and while they are good, they haven't scratched the itch of enthusiast or professional photographers due to a general lack of high-end features and lenses. The new Canon R might may leave something to be desired for professionals in terms of the camera's features and specifications. However, the new RF lenses launching alongside the camera are certainly high-end and signal that the EOS R is not like the EOS M, but rather is the beginning of a new generation for Canon, which will definitely include pro-oriented mirrorless cameras.

The primary marketing term for the new EOS R is "Be the Revolution." I'm not sure I buy the notion that the new system is revolutionary, but it's at least a meaningful evolution and I'm optimistic that it is setting the stage for many great cameras and lenses to come. However, I can't speak to specific upcoming future products, as there are no public details regarding future lenses or cameras in the new EOS R system, so let's take a look at what we do have in the EOS R camera.

Key Features

  • 30.3-megapixel full-frame image sensor
  • Tilt/swivel touchscreen display
  • Large, high-resolution electronic viewfinder
  • New DIGIC 8 image processor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • 4K/30p video recording

Canon EOS R Video Features, Specs & Analysis

This is not the video camera you've been told it is

by Jaron Schneider |

There seems to be this pervasive belief that in order for a camera to be good, it has to be somehow life-changing, industry-shattering, and future proof. Though these things are nice, they should not be considered a necessity. We've gotten to the point where we've been spoiled by technological achievements, and if a new product doesn't take us beyond the best that is out there, then it is a failure. This seems odd to me, as there are very few industries where we hold this kind of a standard over the manufacturers. The Nissan Leaf is not a Tesla Model S, but it sells well. Same for the Chevy Volt. They're different takes on a wholly game-changing idea, but they are not ridiculed for those takes. They work for a large group of people, and that is exactly what Nissan and Chevrolet were going for.

When we look at the Canon EOS R, the immediate reaction is to compare it to the Sony line, and I understand that and did it myself. But where things get dicey is when someone is willing to say that the EOS R is a "bad camera" because it may not stack up to what the Sony Alpha does. I've even heard that it's "not a professional camera."

Stop it. The EOS R is not a bad camera. And what does that second part even mean? That a professional would never buy it? How would you know? I'm a professional, and I used it successfully on three separate commercial video shoots.

Camera Body Design and Real-World Handling

I had the chance to chat with the lead designer of the EOS R. Our conversation shed light on the objectives of the camera's design and how much consideration goes into every aspect of the camera body, from the shape of body details all the way down to the materials used for buttons and dials. The team at Canon responsible for this new full-frame mirrorless camera and lenses went through numerous revisions, including many sculptures and 3D printings, before settling on the production models. The camera and lenses were designed in conjunction with one another and their look evokes this. The materials used for the EOS R and new RF lenses are consistent, and the final look is stylish, modern and familiar.

A lot of thought went into the design of the EOS R, including its front grip.

The primary design language of the Canon R is compact and familiar. The camera is not what I would call small, but for a full-frame camera, it certainly is quite compact, especially compared to Canon's full-frame DSLR cameras. With this decrease in size and weight comes a decrease in ease-of-use. At the same time, the camera feels quite similar to an EOS DSLR. There are common design elements between the two cameras, including the shape of the front grip and how the camera feels to hold. A driving force of the design was making it so that the gap between the front grip and lens mount was the same distance on the EOS R as it is on the 6D Mark II, so the familiarity is no coincidence. It's a little detail, but it's something that makes the camera feel very good to hold.

On the less positive side, a smaller camera body means less room for buttons. Gone are handy row of buttons on the top of the camera, including a dedicated ISO button, and there are less buttons on the rear of the camera. While you retain control over all settings, there have been compromises in terms of the speed with which you can access and change settings. The touchscreen has become increasingly important as a way to interact with the camera. The touchscreen does looks nice, and the tilting mechanism is very good. Changing ISO and other exposure settings is as simple as touching that section of the display, so that is certainly nice. It's not as good as large, dedicated buttons and dials, especially when wearing gloves, but it works fine in most cases to use the touchscreen for these settings.

Alternatively, you can use the new Touch Bar control. Located just to the left of the thumb rest, the new Touch Bar is a highly customizable touch-sensitive control. For example, I have mine set up so that I can tap the left side to go to ISO 100 and the right side to set the camera to Auto ISO. It's a great idea in theory, less so in practice, however. By default, you must hold your finger down for a few seconds to "charge" the bar before you can use it.; in a sense "unlocking" the control. That's a bit frustrating. On the other hand, the alternative is having it work instantly when you touch it, making it far too easy to accidentally touch. I have yet to find a perfect way to integrate the Touch Bar into my workflow, but I have to say that it's a solid idea and the customization you can do with it is impressive. I'm confident some people will find a way to utilize it well within their workflow.

With less space on the camera, the EOS R has fewer buttons. In some cases, this is not a problem. However, in other cases, it can take an extra step to change a setting when compared to a full-frame Canon DSLR. Further, the camera can, at times, feel cramped.

If you are used to shooting with a digital SLR camera, then switching to an electronic viewfinder can sometimes be a jarring experience. However, Canon has done a nice job with the EOS R's EVF. It's large, sharp and vibrant with an impressive refresh rate. Specs aside, the viewfinder experience is smooth and natural. It may not be quite as good as an optical viewfinder when following subjects and shooting continuously, due to occasional lag and stuttering, but it does offer the advantage of showing you a preview of how a specific exposure will look given your settings. There's a tradeoff, but more so than EOS M cameras, the EOS R delivers an enjoyable and natural shooting experience through the viewfinder.

As mentioned, the compact camera body has fewer buttons and can feel a bit cramped in use. For example, I accidentally hit the AF-ON button on numerous occasions with my thumb. I ultimately customized the camera's buttons to alleviate the issue. When you shrink a camera, you can't have everything work exactly the way you're used to, at least not compared to a full-frame DSLR camera. Another frustration in the field was the ON/OFF switch being located to the left of the viewfinder. I want to be able to turn the camera on and off with my right hand. The menu button is on the left of the viewfinder as well, meaning I needed to use my second hand to access the menus. On the plus side, the "Quick Menu" is accessible using my right hand, and that offers access to many useful settings.

Considering the right side of the camera, the top display is nice. It's easy to read and by pressing the backlight button – which you can also hold to enable the backlight for the display – you can cycle through information on the display. By default, you see basic shooting settings, but you can switch between that display or being able to see an array of additional camera settings, such as focus mode, metering mode, drive mode, Picture Style, image quality, video quality and more. When you power down the camera, you continue to see the shooting mode, but not basic shooting settings. It's nitpicky of me, but I'd like to be able to see shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings even when the camera is off. I've been told this display takes up very little battery power, so I don't think adding a little more information would greatly affect battery life.

The top of the camera lacks the dedicated settings control buttons of Canon's higher-end DSLR cameras. The top display is nice, although I think it is underutilized.

A bit further to the right is the mode dial, although calling it the mode dial is a bit disingenuous. It's more like a typical rear command dial except you also use it to change the shooting mode. To do this, you must press down on the "mode" button in the center of the top of the dial. I find difficult to press using my right index finger, which is a slight annoyance. And if you want to switch from a still shooting mode to a video shooting mode, you have to press the mode button and then press the "Info" button on the back before you can access the different video modes. You can press the dedicated record button on the top of the camera at any time, but you won't have the same level of control in that case.

It may seem like I've mostly been noting aspects of the camera's design and handling I don't particularly like, so I'd like to finish this section with a quick recap of my favorite aspects of the design. The front grip is great. It feels large without actually being massive. A lot of thought went into the design of the grip and it shows when using the camera. The EVF and rear display are sharp and vibrant, and the tilt/swivel mechanism for the display is top-notch. There's a lot to like about the EOS R's design, and overall it definitely feels like a Canon camera.

Image Sensor and Image Quality

Equipped with a similar 30-megapixel CMOS image sensor as the Canon 5D Mark IV, you can expect a lot of similarities between the EOS R and the 5D IV in terms of image quality. With the new DIGIC 8 image processor, though, Canon states that there should be improved imaging performance, but I haven't noticed any significant change.

The native ISO range is 100 to 40,000 and is expandable to 50-102,400. That's a lot of flexibility, and the 30-megapixel files offer a good amount of detail throughout a large portion of the ISO range. The EOS R performs well in low light and when shot in good light at or near base ISO, the files are very high-quality and flexible.

An aspect of Canon cameras that get a lot of praise, and rightfully so, is the way the cameras reproduce colors. The EOS R continues this trend by delivering pleasing colors and tones that are not overly-saturated by modern standards.

When using Canon's EOS M cameras – which are certainly not in the same league as the new EOS R – a common praise I've given to various models is that the Dual Pixel CMOS AF focusing system works well in a wide variety of situations. With the EOS R, Dual Pixel CMOS AF is even more impressive. The system covers approximately 88 percent of the horizontal area of the image sensor and 100 percent of the vertical area, although it can be a bit less than this if you are adapting a lens depending on which specific lens you are adapting. Nonetheless, with native lenses and some adapted lenses, this amount of coverage is superb, especially for a full-frame camera.

The strengths don't stop there, the EOS R and its up to 5,655 manually-selectable autofocus points have a native working range from -6 EV to 18 EV, which is very good. While in the real-world, my experience in low light might not have been quite that good, but the EOS R did do well in pre-sunrise shooting conditions. When I needed to manually focus, that worked well too, especially with focus peaking and being able to zoom in on a selected area to verify focus.

The touchscreen implementation for autofocus is another strong point with the EOS R. When shooting using the rear display, the touchscreen is quite responsive and it's easy to move the focus point around nearly the entire frame thanks to the extensive coverage area. When shooting through the electronic viewfinder, you can enable Touchpad AF, which is off by default, to allow you to use your thumb to move the focusing point around the frame while you're looking through the viewfinder. It works well and is very useful, especially considering that the camera doesn't have a dedicated AF joystick subselector. In case you're wondering, you can set the directional pad to directly control the autofocus point, at the cost of default shortcut functions, but it takes a very long time to move across the frame due to a combined slow movement speed and the bevy of points. A dedicated AF controller would be ideal, but the touchpad AF function does work well.

It is not a perfect system, however, as there are some weaknesses. The EOS R has good continuous autofocus performance in terms of accuracy, but the camera can't shoot with servo AF beyond 5 frames per second so it isn't an ideal camera for action and sports. Further, the face detect and eye detect autofocus features don't consistently work well and eye detect autofocus is limited to single shot AF mode (does not work with Servo AF).

The Dual Pixel CMOS AF system is very quick in many situations, though, and made few mistakes during my extended time with the camera. Perhaps the best thing I can say about the autofocus capabilities of the EOS R is that while shooting, I very rarely thought about the focusing system at all. It performed very well, allowing me to concentrate on simply shooting, knowing that the camera would take care of autofocus in a consistent and reliable way.


The Canon EOS R has a new DIGIC 8 image processor and delivers pretty good overall performance. However, the camera is not a speed demon. The EOS R can shoot at up to 8 frames per second with a RAW buffer of 47 shots. The catch is that these speeds are only available with locked autofocus. If you want continuous autofocus performance, the speed drops to 5 fps and drops further to 3 fps if shooting with Dual Pixel RAW enabled or with Tracking Priority.

In real-world testing, the speeds occasionally proved a bit limiting, but the camera's buffer clearing was quick and the camera overall felt quite snappy and responsive during use. It isn't going to replace a 1DX-style camera for sports or wildlife shooters, but the EOS R offers enough speed and performance for many different situations.

Shooting Experience

Flying somewhat under the radar is the EOS R's new Fv shooting mode. This "Flexible-priority AE" mode allows the user to adjust shutter speed, aperture and ISO to automatic or manual values on the fly. You may be wondering about the relative advantages of this mode, after all, it doesn't necessarily sound different at first. It's different from manual in that you can set some or all of the settings to automatic. It's different from aperture priority, even with some shutter speed controls applied through menus as you can do with certain cameras, because you can manually set a shutter speed at any given time. Ultimately, it is not significantly different, nor did I find myself wanting to use it very often. It is an additional and very flexible option that may fit into some users' workflows well.

In the Field

Without a long lens to use with the Canon EOS R, I mostly used it as a landscape camera. Ultimately, landscape photography is my favorite type of photography, and I was anxious to put the camera to work. There is a lot to like from a landscape photographer's point of view, but there are also some issues.

Starting with the positive aspects, the image quality from the EOS R is quite nice, and I have found that the RAW files are flexible enough for most needs. The dynamic range from the 30-megapixel Canon sensor is good, although not quite up to par with Nikon and Sony's latest full-frame cameras. With that said, the Canon is close, and the image quality overall is very good. I would prefer a camera without an anti-aliasing filter, however, as I appreciate the very fine details which get lost when a camera employs an AA filter.

Another nice aspect of the EOS R in the field is the touchscreen. It looks good, even in bright light, and the tilt/swivel mechanism is great, especially when working on a tripod. I frequently utilized the camera's rear display when composing shots and being able to tilt it was excellent. Further, the low-light autofocus generally worked quite well.

Without a mirror and with a greater emphasis on compact and lightweight design, the EOS R and accompanying 24-105mm f/4 kit lens – which is a great all-around lens, including for landscapes – were easy to carry and worked nicely on my small lightweight tripod. While I am not opposed to carrying heavy gear if it means capturing a better shot, it is nice to have something lightweight that works very well and offers great full-frame image quality.

No camera is perfect, not even for a singular type of photography, and the EOS R is no exception. There are a couple of big issues for me as a landscape photographer based in Maine. I frequently wear gloves while shooting and even with thin gloves, the small buttons of the EOS R are very hard to use. This means that not only is it hard to feel when I press a button, but finding a button, particularly in low light, is difficult as well. Further, the Touch Bar and touchscreen are nearly impossible to use with gloves, which is not an uncommon issue but still a frustration in the field.

As a landscape camera, the EOS R is a good option and could be a great option for those with existing full-frame Canon EF lenses. Plus, when you consider the upcoming EF adapter with a drop-in filter, you will be able to easily use filters with ultra-wide lenses, so that's another positive aspect to consider.

New RF Lens Mount and Lenses

The new RF lens mount has the same 54mm inner diameter but has reduced the flange distance from 44 millimeters to 20mm and increased the number of pin connections from 8 to 12. Optically, a shorter flange distance and shorter back focus distance has many advantages. The closer you can get the rear lens element to the image sensor, the more freedom you have when designing lenses and also you are able to reduce the size and weight of lenses while simultaneously maintaining or even improving image quality. Basically, Canon can produce smaller lenses that are better. The increase of pins from 8 to 12 is something of a future-proofing move, and it allows for more information to travel between the lens and the camera, which can provide improved performance with respect to changing aperture quickly and perhaps even better focus and image stabilization performance. As of now, the increased data throughput is not really being utilized.

The primary takeaway is that Canon has been able to maintain performance with all adapted EF and EF-S lenses while also laying the groundwork for more creative, compact and improved native RF lenses. Existing types of lenses can be made lighter and smaller like in the case of the RF 24-105mm f/4 zoom. They will also be sharper as in the case of the RF 50mm f/1.2 portrait prime. Also, new lens designs are possible with the revised RF mount design, including the new RF 28-70mm f/2 zoom.

Canon RF 50mm f/1.2 L

The Canon RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM is a great example of how the new RF mount allows for existing types of lenses to be better than ever before. With the shorter flange distance, the rear element of the RF 50mm f/1.2 L can get closer to the image sensor than the EF 50mm f/1.2 L lens, which allows for better optical performance across the frame. In terms of sharpness, the difference between the EF 50mm f/1.2 and the RF 50mm f/1.2 is stark. Further, the RF 50mm f/1.2 L is quite light for a lens of its type, and it balances nicely on the EOS R. Plus, it has the new programmable Control Ring, which is awesome.

On the left, we can see the new RF 50mm f/1.2 L MTF charts versus the EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM on the right. The RF version has considerably better sharpness and consistency across the frame.

Canon RF 24-105mm f/4

The new RF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM fills a very similar role as the EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS lens. It offers a versatile focal length, a reasonably quick constant aperture and is an excellent kit lens. The RF 24-105mm f/4 L in particular is compact and lightweight, thanks to the new RF lens mount. It also includes a new smaller Nano USM focusing actuator. The difference in optical quality between the EF 24-105mm and the new RF 24-105mm is not as large as it is when comparing 50mm f/1.2 lenses, but to be able to offer similar – and probably slightly better – imaging performance in a smaller lens is certainly nice. The EOS R and RF 24-105mm f/4 L make an excellent pairing.

When paired with the EOS R, the RF 24-105mm f/4 lens combination is much smaller than the 5D Mark IV with the latest EF 24-105mm f/4 lens.

Who is the Canon EOS R best for?

It's important to note that the Canon EOS R is the first camera in a fledgling new system, so it's unreasonable to expect the camera to have a large variety of native lenses. With that said, for whom does the Canon EOS R make the most sense? People already invested in a full-frame Canon DSLR system.

With the three different EF to RF adapters available, including one with a Control Ring and another with a drop-in filter slot, the EOS R is clearly best for people with existing EF lenses. This lets you to compensate for what the current RF lens lineup is missing, including wide-angle and telephoto lenses. If you don't own Canon lenses already, you are jumping into a new system that has room to grow, but currently doesn't offer a lot of variety in terms of optics. It's similar to the situation with the new Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras, which are definitely aimed at existing Nikon shooters.

Having established that caveat, let's consider what the EOS R can do and what it's best at. It's great for traveling and doing landscape photography. The titling screen is excellent in general, but particularly good when working on a tripod. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF system and its excellent frame coverage works very well, and the camera with the new 24-105mm f/4 L kit lens is a pretty compact and lightweight full-frame setup. With the new RF 50mm f/1.2 L lens and the EOS R's good autofocus, the EOS R is also well-suited to portrait photography.

Areas where the EOS R comes up a bit short include sports and wildlife photography. There simply aren't the native lenses available yet, and the EOS R is not a super-fast or high-performing camera. AF is good, but the continuous shooting speeds are not up to the standards of something like a 5D Mark IV or 1DX Mark II. Canon has been quick to point out that the EOS R is not really aimed at professionals despite offering good image quality and the same weather sealing as the 5D IV. It may be a nice second camera for a pro, and it certainly can work well in certain professional scenarios, but it's more of an enthusiast camera.

The Canon EOS R is great for:

  • Those with good full-frame Canon EF lenses
  • Photographers wanting a compact and lightweight Canon full-frame camera
  • Photographers who shoot travel, landscape and portrait images

The Canon EOS R is not the best choice for:

  • Sports and wildlife photographers due to the lack of speed and lack of native telephoto optics
  • Photographers who enjoy ample physical controls on their cameras
  • People needing full-frame 4K video recording

Canon EOS R Field Test Summary

A promising start to the next chapter in Canon cameras

What I like:

  • Compact and lightweight camera body
  • Excellent tilt/swivel touchscreen display
  • Very good electronic viewfinder
  • Fast Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus with a lot of frame coverage
  • Good image quality
  • Impressive native lenses

What I don't like:

  • Continuous shooting performance is not very impressive
  • Not a lot of native lens variety yet
  • The smaller size raises some usability concerns

There is a lot to like about the Canon EOS R. Even with some issues of usability due to its compact size, the camera is thoughtfully-designed and generally feels very nice to use. It has that "Canon" look and feel, but it may be a camera that is more likely to be added to a bag alongside another Canon camera and lenses, rather than attracting brand-new customers. I'm not a daily Canon shooter, but I get the appeal of their camera systems, especially after using the Canon EOS R. It produces nice images with a certain je ne sais quoi, and the lenses are top-notch.

The new lens mount has already produced the highly-interesting RF 28-70mm f/2 lens and a very sharp 50mm f/1.2 prime. I will be very interested to see what else Canon can do with the new engineering possibilities afforded by the RF lens mount. The Canon EOS R feels like a promising start to Canon's next chapter.

Canon EOS R Review -- Product Overview

by William Brawley
Preview posted: 09/05/2018

Player Three has entered the game. Yes folks, here it is, as Japanese camera giant Canon follows Nikon into the modern full-frame mirrorless fray, debuting the all-new Canon EOS R camera and RF lens mount. Also new are four RF lenses - two zooms and two primes - to kick off the new Canon R system.

(A quick side note: Yes, the Leica SL and M series are full-frame mirrorless cameras, but they are basically in a class all their own, especially when it comes down to pricing. And so we're not grouping them into this "mainstream" full-frame mirrorless arena dominated now by Sony, Nikon and Canon.)

The Canon EOS R features a new lens mount dubbed RF mount, which features a 54mm inner diameter and a flange-back distance of 20mm. That's the same throat diameter as EF mount, but it's some 24mm shorter in flange depth which should allow for better illumination in the corners and lenses with fewer elements. The Canon RF mount also features a new high-speed 12-pin electrical interface that provides faster and more in-depth communication between the camera and lens over existing Canon mount systems. Unlike the Sony A7 II/III and Nikon Z-series, the Canon EOS R does not offer in-body sensor-shift image stabilization, however electronic IS is available for video which can be combined with a lens' optical image stabilization.

Alongside the EOS R body, Canon has announced four new RF lenses, two of which are primes:

All four of these lenses have customizable control rings that let you assign features and quickly change settings without having to use the dials on the camera body.

To make full use of your existing EF, EF-S, TS-E and MP-E lenses (EF-M lenses are not supported, since they are designed for a shorter flange-back distance of 18mm), Canon has developed an EF-EOS R mount adapter; three of them, in fact. There's a basic one, plus two variants that have a control ring or support a drop-in filter between the body and lens. The Canon R has a 1.6x crop mode which produces 11.6-megapixel files and supports JPEG, RAW and C-RAW capture.


Much like the Sony Alpha and Nikon Z-series mirrorless cameras, the Canon R sports a streamlined, angular and an all-around significantly smaller body design than a traditional full-frame DSLR. Compared to a typical EOS DSLR, such as the 5D Mark IV, the EOS R is much more compact and lightweight, yet still provides a nice, large handgrip for a comfortable and secure hold. As expected, in pretty much all aspects, the Canon R is smaller and lighter than a full-frame EOS DSLR, even the 6D Mark II -- Canon's most compact and lightest full-frame DSLR model yet. The EOS R weights 660g (1.5 lbs) whereas the 6D Mark II tips the scales at 765g (1.7 lbs.), yet it still features magnesium alloy construction and weather resistance.

Design-wise, the Canon EOS R takes a more angular and "smooth" approach compared to the Sony A7 III or Nikon Z6, or even the Canon EOS M5, for example, when it comes to external buttons and dials. Looking at the front of the camera, there's very little in the way of protruding buttons and dials; everything's nicely recessed into the camera body itself, which creates a sleek, minimal appearance. From the top and back, however, the story is entirely different; there is, in fact, quite an array of physical controls, including dual command dials, a rear multi-directional control, AF-On button and a dedicated video record button.

There are a few unorthodox-looking controls on the EOS R. For starters, there isn't a standard PASM mode dial. Instead, the "MODE" selection is assigned to a button located inside the top/rear thumb control dial, and there's a separate lock button. With this, you simply press the mode button once and then rotate the dial to change shooting modes. Press it again, and the dial's function returns to a second control dial. Although a bit different than your standard "PASM" dial, it allows Canon to keep the controls smaller while still providing a locking mode dial that isn't prone to accidental changes if you bump the camera.

Speaking of the mode dial, there's a new “Fv” (Flexible-priority) shooting mode. It basically lets you switch rapidly between Tv, Av, exposure compensation and ISO using the top/rear dial, then make adjustments within each via the front/top dial. (Thing is, though, it seems like if you adjust Tv and Av separately, you’re basically in M mode; it doesn't auto-switch the discarded parameter back to auto when you leave it.)

Also, on the rear of the camera, there's a new touch bar-style "M-Fn Bar" control to the right of the EVF. You can swipe left or right to control or adjust various settings and simply tap to select/confirm. This button is customizable, too, allowing for quick control of a number of settings, such as ISO speed, white balance, movie shooting, AF and more.

Much like many of Canon's EOS DSLRs -- and a differentiating point compared to Sony's Alpha mirrorless cameras -- the EOS R sports a top-deck status display that shows shooting modes and exposure information. Unlike the current Sony Alpha and Nikon Z-series mirrorless cameras, the Canon R also offers a flip-out, fully articulating rear LCD screen instead of an up/down tilting display. The EOS R uses a 3.15-inch touchscreen TFT LCD that offers approximately 2.1-million dots of resolution and provides 100% field of view coverage.

The electronic viewfinder, meanwhile, has an 0.5-inch OLED display with 3.69 million dots. The EVF features 100% field of view coverage, 0.76x magnification, an eye point of approximately 23mm and an eye sensor.

Sensor and Image Quality

The new Canon R centers around a 30.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, which puts it on-par resolution-wise with the 5D Mark IV and above the 26MP 6D Mark II. When it comes to mirrorless competitors, namely the Sony A7 III and Nikon Z6, these two cameras sport 24MP sensors, so the EOS R bests both of these at least when it comes to pure megapixel count. Of course, as many are aware, pixel-power isn't the end-all and be-all of image quality, so the real test will come when we're able to compare output from all these cameras side by side in our test lab.

The image processor used inside the EOS R is the DIGIC 8, a first for a full-frame camera, though it has been used on the EOS M50 crop-sensor mirrorless camera. (The latest-generation DIGIC processor used for a full-frame EOS DSLR camera is the DIGIC 7, which powers the Canon EOS 6D Mark II as well as a whole slew of current APS-C cameras, from the M100 to the 77D.)

Regarding ISO performance, the EOS R has a native range of 100-40,000, which is similar to that of the 6D Mark II. The ISO range can be expanded down to ISO 50 or up two levels to 51,200 and 102,400.

In addition to standard RAW file capture, the EOS R offers Dual Pixel RAW functionality, a feature that debuted in the 5D Mark IV. With Dual Pixel RAW, you have the ability to make subtle micro-adjustments post-capture to focus, bokeh and ghosting properties. (To read more about what Dual Pixel RAW is and what you can do with it, check out our in-depth Dual Pixel RAW Insights page of our 5D Mark IV review!)

Autofocus and Performance

Similar to the recent Nikon Z-series introduction, the Canon R's autofocus system is going to be a critical feature if it has any hope to compete against the mirrorless juggernaut that is the Sony Alpha series, especially the A7 III and A7R III -- both of which have fantastic, high-performance autofocus systems. Given Canon's legacy with their DSLR cameras and vast EF lens lineup, the EOS R's ability to perform with adapted EF lenses is going to be a key aspect to this new camera system for advanced photographers, and real world shooting situations will soon begin to answer the question of how good AF will be from this new line.

As for the EOS R camera itself and its native RF lenses, Canon's already proven itself quite capable of top-notch mirrorless AF performance with its Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, so we expect great AF performance from the Canon R, for both stills and video. The EOS R’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system features a maximum of 5,655 manually selectable AF points and its focus area covers about 88% of the frame horizontally and 100% vertically when using RF lenses and select EF lenses. AF working range is said to be -6 to 18 EV at ISO 100, but that's with an f/1.2 lens.

Shutter speeds range from 1/8000 to 30 seconds, plus bulb. X-sync speed is 1/200 sec. The Canon R also features a silent shutter option when shooting in single-shot mode, and an upcoming firmware update will enable silent shutter in continuous shooting mode as well.

When it comes to burst shooting performance, the Canon EOS R is relatively quick, but not class-leading by any means, with only 5 frames per second continuous shooting with Servo AF (continuous AF). You can ramp-up the burst rate to 8fps if you don't need continuous autofocus. By comparison, the Nikon Z6 offers up to 12fps with full continuous AF functionality. However, the Z6 drops down to a similar 5.5fps rate if you want continuous AF and auto-exposure functionality. Further, the Sony A7 III offers a 10fps rate with full-time AE/AF.

When it comes to buffer capacity, the EOS R offer fairly respectable performance based on initial specs, besting the 6D Mark II's specs for example. With RAW shooting at the highest burst speed, the EOS R has a claimed buffer depth of 47 frames with a fast UHS-II card, while C-RAW (Canon's lossy compressed raw format) increases that to 78 frames. For JPEG, RAW+JPEG and C-RAW+JPEG shooting, the maximum buffer depths are 100, 39 and 56 frames respectively. As mentioned, the Canon R offers a Dual Pixel RAW mode (in both RAW and C-RAW) with an unlimited (card capacity) buffer depth, but that's likely because the camera slows down when shooting Dual Pixel RAW, similar to the 5D Mark IV. We don't yet know the burst rate when shooting Dual Pixel RAW.


For video shooters, the Canon EOS R offers a host of advanced features, including 4K UHD capture, but it doesn't go all-out with professional-level specs. Unlike the 5D Mark IV which captured 4K DCI (4096 x 2160) video using Motion JPEG, the EOS R offers 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 ) recording using H.264 but still only up to 30fps -- no 4Kp60 unfortunately, and there is still an approximately 1.7x crop factor (even higher with digital IS enabled) when shooting 4K video. 4K bitrate is rather decent, though, at 480Mbps. However, the EOS R does offer C-Log recording internally and externally to an HDMI recorder. Clean HDMI output is 10-bit 4:2:2 and uses the BT.2020 color matrix rather than BT.709.

Full HD recording is also, of course, supported and offered in frame rates up to 60p (59.94). For higher-speed shooting at up to 120fps (119.9fps) you'll have to drop down to 720p HD resolution. For all video resolutions and frame rates except 720p30, the EOS R offers a choice of compressions schemes: higher-quality ALL-I or space-saving IPB compression. Internal video recording format is limited to MPEG-4 AVC / H.264, while audio is recorded in Linear PCM for ALL-I or AAC for IPB.

A UHS-II V60 (Video Speed Class 60) SD card is required for ALL-I recording at 4K, while a UHS-I U3 card is sufficient for IPB or lower resolutions. The maximum sustained video recording time is limited to 29:59, after which point video recording will stop and must be restarted manually.

Connectivity, Storage and Power

When it comes to wireless functionality, the EOS R provides the standard array of modern features, including both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, though no NFC nor built-in GPS. Using a connected smartphone, you can transfer images as well as remotely control the camera using the Camera Connect app. Images can also be transferred wirelessly to a computer using the EOS Utility application.

Wired connections include a USB-C SuperSpeed USB 3.1 Gen 1 port, a Mini HDMI Type-C port and a remote release jack. The camera also provides 3.5mm stereo microphone and headphone jacks. Images and videos are stored on SD cards in a single slot, with support for SDHC, SDXC and UHS-II types.

The EOS R derives its power from an LP-E6N battery pack (LP-E6 battery packs are also supported, but in-camera charging via USB is not supported with the older battery). CIPA battery life is rated at 350 shots per charge with the EVF and 370 shots with the LCD, though a power saving mode can boost those figures to 430 and 450 shots respectively. There is also an Eco mode which further boosts battery life to between 540 and 560 shots per charge when using the LCD.

An optional BG-E22 battery grip doubles battery life with two LP-E6N battery packs installed. And with an AC adapter and DC coupler the EOS R can be continuously powered.

Pricing and Availability

The Canon EOS R is scheduled to be available in October 2018 for an estimated retail price of US$2,299 for the body only. It will also be sold as a body-and-lens kit with the new RF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens for US$3,399.
