Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera is finally here. Whether you're an amateur or a pro, the 30.3-megapixel EOS R can keep up with your demands. This agile camera excels in different shooting situations and in all kinds of lighting. If you need a fast, responsive camera that produces pro-quality high-resolution still images and 4K video — and is easy to take along anywhere — this little beauty is for you.
The included L-series 24-105mm f/4 IS USM lens is the perfect complement to the EOS R. Quick to focus and incredibly quiet, it's perfect for still photography and videos. Built-in image stabilization helps you capture blur-free photos and shake-free videos, and a constant f/4 maximum aperture keeps the look of your images consistent at different focal lengths.
If you're a loyal Canon shooter, you'll notice that the EOS R has a familiar look and feel. Only it's much slimmer than the camera bodies you're used to lugging around. The grip on this camera is substantial and it feels great in-hand. Forget about wrist fatigue after hours of shooting!
Canon has already released a handful of high-quality RF-mount lenses for the EOS R, but you don't have to wait for more options to max out this camera's imaging potential. You can use your existing EF and EF-S lenses with an optional mount adapter. The camera recognizes when you attach an EF-S lens and will crop your images accordingly.
The EOS R is equipped with a high-performance DIGIC 8 image processor for outstanding image quality and fast continuous shooting at up to eight frames per second. The ISO range of 100-40000 yields excellent results in available light. The camera's megapixel-packed full-frame sensor further enhances low-light performance, with reduced noise even at higher ISO settings.
The camera's Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus system enables fast, smooth autofocus performance. Movie focus is natural and precise, even when switching between subjects. With as many as 5,655 manually selectable AF points and high-speed focusing in as little as 0.05 seconds, you can maintain focus and capture fast action with speed, accuracy, and ease.
With a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and a large 3.15" touchscreen, the EOS R offers easy, intuitive shooting. The touchscreen rotates to help you compose shots from high or low angles, and it even turns to face you for the perfect self-portrait or group shot. Touch and Drag autofocus makes it easy to switch focus by dragging the AF frame on the LCD screen. And you can even do it while looking through the viewfinder.
If you're new to videography, the EOS R is easy to handle and fun to use. It shoots 4K video at up to 30 frames per second, and Full HD 60p movies that can be saved as MP4s for easy sharing. You can rely on continuous autofocus for easy shooting, and select autofocus points on the touchscreen while the camera is rolling.
Experienced videographers will appreciate some of the EOS R's more advanced recording features. The Canon Log gamma selection reduces heavy shadows and blown-out highlights, for movie images with approximately 12 stops of dynamic range at ISO 400. A 10-bit 4:2:2 HDMI output lets you record 4K footage to an external drive. There's a microphone input for capturing high-quality sound, and a headphone jack for monitoring audio recording.
The EOS R's Wi-Fi lets you upload and share photos and videos in moments. Canon's free Camera Connect app lets you manage your photos and videos on your phone or tablet. And you can use your device as a remote to trigger the shutter with just a quick touch.

Overview: This Canon EOS R kit includes the RF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM standard zoom lens. It covers a wide range of focal lengths from wide angle to mid telephoto. The lens maintains a constant f/4 maximum aperture throughout the full zoom range. It also features a built-in Image Stabilizer (IS), as well as a Nano USM.
Lens Construction: The lens is constructed of 18 lens elements in 14 groups. The lens has three Glass-molded (GMo) aspheric lens elements, and an Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) lens element.
Lens Coatings: The front and rear lens surfaces are coated with non-stick fluorine to help reduce smears and fingerprints. This helps prevents dust, water, oil, and other surface residue from sticking to the lens, and allows you to quickly and easily wipe the lens clean without the use of solvents. In addition, Air Sphere Coating (ASC) on the lens elements help to combat flare, ghosting, and reflections with reduced aberrations.
12-pin Communication: The Canon RF-series lenses feature a 12-pin communication system between the camera and the lens (compared to 8 pins for the EF-series). This 12-pin system is the fastest available for a Canon lens and camera combination, and provides faster AF, Image Stabilization, Digital Lens Optimizer, and more. In addition, the EOS R camera can display lens information directly to the viewfinder, making it easy to confirm the lens' focal length without looking away from your subject.
Control Ring: The RF-series lenses feature a control ring on the lens barrel, which can be assigned to functions that are commonly used on the camera. These functions include shutter speed and aperture settings, or exposure compensation. The ring has a clicking mechanism that acts as a confirmation that the settings are being changed.
Note: The clicking sound could possibly be picked up by the microphone while shooting movies. If you desire a silent control ring, the clicking mechanism can be removed by a Canon service provider (for a fee).
Image Stabilizer (IS): The built-in Image Stabilizer can be used in the AF (autofocus) or MF (manual focus) modes. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent effect of a shutter speed 5 stops faster. The 2-position switch located on the barrel of the lens allows you to turn the image stabilizer on and off.
Nano USM: The RF 24-105mm lens is equipped with Canon's Nano USM (Ultra-Sonic Motor). The Nano USM combines a conventional ring USM and STM (lead-screw type) AF, and features a small chip-shaped ultrasonic motor to give you high-speed, smooth, and precise autofocus and full-time manual focus. The Nano USM operates in near silence, making it ideal for video recording.
Focusing Ring: Regardless of whether the lens is set to manual or auto focus mode, the focusing ring always works. This means you can auto focus on a subject, but manually fine-tune the focus by turning the focusing ring.
Lens Hood: The included EW-83N lens hood can keep unwanted light out of the lens, and protect the lens from rain, snow, and dust. You can reverse-mount the lens hood on the lens for storage.
Optional Filters: The RF 24-105mm lens has a 77mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters.
Power Options: The EOS R operates on the supplied LP-E6N Lithium-Ion battery (7.2V, 1865 mAh, 14Wh). The battery can be charged in the supplied LC-E6N battery charger in approximately 150 minutes. The supplied battery performance specs are as follows:
23° C/73° F
|Approx. 370 shots||2 hrs 20 min|
|0° C/32° F||Approx. 350 shots||2 hrs 10 min|
Optional AC Power: With the optional DR-E6 DC coupler and the AC-E6N, you can connect the camera to a household power outlet and not worry about the battery becoming exhausted. The ACK-E6 AC adapter kit can also be used.
Optional BG-E20 Battery Grip: With the optional BG-E22 Battery Grip, you can power the camera with two LP-E6N batteries. The two LP-E6 battery packs in the BG-E22 will give you roughly double the number of still images or movie shooting time. When two batteries are installed in the magazine, power is supplied simultaneously from both batteries.
Auto Power Off: To save battery power, the camera turns off automatically after a period of non-operation. The Auto Power Off time can be set to 1 minute, 2 minutes, 4 minutes, 8 minutes, 15 minutes, or 30 minutes. You can also disable the Auto Power Off function.
Note: The Auto Power Off function will not activate in Auto Playback Mode.
Canon EOS Software: The EOS R does not include any software in the box. The following software can be used with the camera and is available for free download from the Canon website:
