Japanese camera giant Canon has announced company’s first full-frame mirror-less camera and lens system, both namely EOS R. Canon launched the EOS R soon after its rival Nikon launched their own full-frame mirror-less cameras.
Looks like the two camera giants from Japan are sedately into high-end mirror-less cameras now. Both the companies didn’t look promising when it comes to the full-frame mirror-less cameras in the past and were passive in comparison to the likes of Sony and Fujifilm.
Previous leaks suggest that the EOS R camera carries a 30.3-megapixel full-frame sensor with the ISO range 100-40,000. The camera sensor is a dual-pixel autofocus one-sided with the company’s DIGIC 8 image processor system. Also, the camera has a fully enunciated touchscreen, an OLED electronic viewfinder as well as an information panel on top.
This EOS R system differentiates the camera from previous Canon camera models in many different ways, some of which include a dedicated control ring and dials used for zooming and manual focus and also helps in adjusting aperture from the camera lens. Also, the camera has a left-right control bar slider on the back which comes in handy.
The first EOS R lenses available are 24-105 mm f/4 L, 50 mm f/1.2 mm L, 28-70 mm f/2 L, 35 mm f/1.8 macro. Similarly, Canon is going to release three lens mount adapters as well for EOS SLR lenses, one of which will have EOS R control ring while the other can be used with drop-in filters.
The pre-orders of the camera will start on September 12. Regarding price, it will be available for $2,299 – body only and will cost $3,399 with a 24-105 mm lens but you will have to wait till late October.
