Package Overview: Canon's new mirrorless EOS R digital
camera has a 30.3 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS image sensor. Its new RF-mount is
54mm wide, much larger than the EF-mount found on Canon's EOS line of DSLRs. The
camera is compatible with the new RF lenses, and with the
EF-EOS R Mount Adapter (sold separately), you can use all of your EF and EF-S
lenses. This package includes the EOS R body only -- no lenses.
30.3 Megapixel CMOS Sensor:
The EOS R features a huge, full-frame sensor. The
30.3-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers images of up to 6720 x 4480 pixels. The
DIGIC 8 Image Processor enhances the speed of operations in the camera, allowing
you to shoot large still image files and 4K video.
Clear View LCD II Vari-angle Touch Screen Monitor: The EOS R
features a 3.15" Clear View LCD II TFT color monitor with approximately
2.1-million dots which allows you to view and shoot real-time images. The
monitor has a capacitive touch screen that allows you to make menu selections,
touch focus and touch shutter in Live View, and browse images using your
fingers. The LCD monitor offers 100% viewing coverage and 7 manual brightness
levels to choose from. In Live View, grid lines can be displayed in 9 sections
(3x3), 24 sections (6x4), or 9 sections (3x3) with diagonals, as well as a
dual-axis electronic level. The Live View function enables you to shoot your
subjects while viewing them on the LCD monitor.
0.5" OLED Electronic Viewfinder (EVF): The Canon EOS R uses a
eye-level viewfinder with 0.76x magnification for approximately 100%
vertical and horizontal coverage. The 0.5" OLED EVF has approximately
3.69-million dots. A -4 to +2 diopter lets you adjust the viewfinder's image to
Sensor Cleaning System: Canon's Integrated Cleaning system includes a
self-cleaning sensor unit that can remove dust on the image sensor. The Self
Cleaning Sensor can shake off dust automatically when the camera is powered on
or off. You can also activate the sensor clean function manually, if desired.
Recording Media: The EOS
R records still images and videos to SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards. Both UHS-I
and UHS-II cards are supported. For recording 4K movies, UHS-I Speed Class 3 or
higher, or UHS-II Video Speed Class 60 or higher should be used. For Full HD
movie recording, you should use UHS-I Speed Class 3 or higher, or SD Speed Class
10 or higher memory cards.
Image Recording Format:
The camera records still images in JPEG
and RAW (CR3, a Canon 14-bit RAW format). Simultaneous RAW + JPEG recording is also possible.
JPEG images can be set to Fine or Normal compression. The image's aspect ratio can be set to 3:2, 4:3, 16:9, or 1:1. JPEG images will
be saved with the set aspect ratio, while RAW images will always be saved in
3:2, with the aspect ratio information stored in the image. Movies are recorded in the MOV format,
in three frame rates, and three compression methods (All-I, IPB Standard, and
IPB-Light). Available image sizes include:
|Image Quality ||Aspect Ratio |
|3:2 ||1.6x Crop ||4:3 ||16:9 ||1:1 |
|6720 x 4480 ||4176 x 2784 ||5952 x 4480 ||6720 x 3776 ||4480 x 4480 |

Grab is done during playback.
Drive Modes: The Canon EOS
R offers the following Drive modes:
- Single Shooting: When
you press the shutter button completely, only one shot will be taken.
- High-speed Continuous Shooting:
While you press the shutter button completely, multiple shots will be taken
continuously. High-speed continuous shooting can record up to approximately
8 shots per second.
- Low-speed Continuous Shooting: While you hold down the shutter
button, you can shoot continuously at approximately 3 shots per second.
- Silent Shooting: Silent Shooting is quieter than normal
shooting. You can choose Silent Single shooting in Single Shooting and
Self-Timer drive mode.
- Self-Timer/Remote Control: The camera will record an
image 2 or 10 seconds after pressing the shutter button on the camera. Using
BR-E1 Wireless Remote Control, you can operate the camera from up to
approximately 16.4 feet.
5,655-Point Autofocus System:
The EOS R features a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system with 5,655 manually
selectable AF points. The lightning fast AF system delivers sharp focus in as
little as 0.05 seconds.
Focusing Modes: The camera lets you choose one of the
methods for focusing:
- One-Shot AF: suited for still
subjects, the camera focuses only once.
- Servo AF: for moving subjects when the focusing distance keeps
changing. The subject will be focused continuously while the shutter button
is pressed halfway.
- Manual Focusing
Shooting Modes: The EOS R's top-mounted Mode Dial
offers the following shooting modes:
Automatic (Scene Intelligent Auto): The camera analyses the
scene and sets the optimum settings automatically.
- Program AE:
The camera automatically sets
the shutter speed and aperture value to suit the scene's brightness.
- Shutter-Priority AE (Tv): In this mode, you set the shutter speed and the
camera automatically sets the aperture value to suit the brightness of
the subject. A slow shutter speed can create a blurred effect, while a
fast shutter speed can freeze action.
- Aperture-priority AE (Av): In this mode, you set the desired aperture
value and the camera sets the shutter speed automatically to suit the
subject brightness. A low aperture number can create a blurred
background (narrow depth of field), while a high aperture number can create
a sharp foreground and background (wide depth of field).
- Flexible-Priority AE (Fv): This mode lets you set the
shutter speed, aperture, and IOS speed manually or automatically, and
combine these settings with your choice of exposure compensation.
Exposure: In this mode, you set both the shutter speed and aperture
value as desired.
- Bulb: When Bulb is set, the shutter stays open as long as you
hold down the shutter button completely, and closes when you let go of the
shutter button. The Bulb Timer function lets you preset the bulb exposure's
exposure time. Bulb exposures are for night scenes, fireworks, the night
sky, and other subjects requiring long exposures.
Metering Modes: You can select from the following metering modes:
- Evaluative Metering: The camera's standard metering mode suited for most subjects even under
backlit conditions, after detecting the main subject's position, brightness,
background, front and back lighting conditions, etc, the camera sets the proper exposure.
- Partial Metering: Effective when the background is much brighter than the subject
due to backlighting, etc, uses approximately 6.1%
of the frame at the center.
- Spot Metering: For metering a specific part
of the subject, uses approximately 2.7%
of the frame at the center.
- Center-weighted Average
Metering: Metering is weighted at the center and then averaged for
the entire scene.
ISO Speed: The camera's ISO speed is set at the
- Still Images:
- Scene Intelligent Auto: Set automatically between ISO 100 and
- Fv / P / Tv / Av / Bulb: Set automatically or manually
between ISO 100 and ISO 40000 in 1/3- or 1-stop increments. Expandable

- Scene Intelligent Auto: Set automatically between ISO 100 and
ISO 12800 (100-25600 for Full HD/HD)
- P / Tv / Av: Automatically set between ISO 100 and ISO 12800
(100-25600 for Full HD/HD), expandable to H2 (ISO 102400).

Manually set between ISO 100-12800 (100-25600 Full HD/HD) (in 1/3- or
1-stop increments, expandable to H2 (ISO 102400)

is for nice skin
tones, making the image look softer. You can change the color tone to adjust
the skin tone.
- Landscape: For vivid blues and greens, very sharp and crisp images.
- Fine Detail: Suited for detailed outline and fine texture
description of the subject, and slightly vivid colors.
