Canon announces EOS R7 and EOS R10 APSC sensor cameras

Canon has announced the launch of its first APS-C sensor EOS R mirrorless cameras. The EOS R7 with its 32 MP sensor is ideal for general photography enthusiasts and people who want to create better quality photos and videos but don’t need demanding features like professionals.

The EOS R7 camera has very good autofocus and the subject detection mode is same as the autofocus in EOS R3. The R7 can shoot photos upto 15 fps in mechanical shutter mode. It should be noted that earlier getting 10fps in DSLR cameras was a big thing. The R7 has dual memory card slots. It also has in-body image stabilization. It is dust and moisture resistant as well as. So it will hold up well in inclement weather. It can also shoot 4K video at 60fps using the full width of the sensor. According to Canon this is the first camera in its lineup to offer 7 stops of coordinated image stabilization. We will have to see how good this is in practice.

The EOS R10 with its 24 MP sensor is aimed at the entry level content creators and can shoot at upto 15fps in mechanical shutter mode. Like the EOS R7, the EOS R10 also don’t have the 30 mins continuous shooting limit. Technically both these cameras can shoot 4K video at upto 30fps continuously for more than 30 minutes provided the card has memory and the temperature remains within acceptable limits.

For use with the EOS R7 and EOS R10, Canon has announced a series of budget lenses. Canon will release new RF-S lenses – a series of RF-mount lenses that are 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, these 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, but users will experience a field of view equivalent to 29-72mm lens coverage on a full-frame camera. The RF-S18-150mm lens is a longer-range standard zoom, equivalent to 29-240mm lens coverage on a full frame. While ideal for the new EOS R10 and EOS R7 APS-C sized sensor bodies, these lenses can be used for any R-series camera.
