Superb image quality
30.3 MP Full-frame CMOS Sensor DIGIC 8 Image Processor
The EOS R camera has a standard ISO sensitivity range of 100–40000 for stills and 100–25600 for video (100–12800 for 4K video shooting). Combined with the EOS R camera’s remarkable low-light AF performance, still and video shooting is possible even in dark situations in a variety of places and occasions.

and Wide AF Area
The EOS R camera’s AF system features an incredible 5,655 manually selectable AF points**. Combined with a focus area that covers approx. 88% horizontal and 100% vertical*** when using RF lenses and select EF lenses, this AF system helps ensure swift and accurate focus no matter where your subject is located in the frame.
Selectable AF Points**
AF Area Coverage***
EV -6^ Low-light Autofocus
Amazing for nighttime photography or in very low light, the EOS R camera’s brilliant AF can operate in light as dim as a light rating of EV -6^ where other AF systems may fail or search. Phenomenal AF is achieved even when using lenses with high F numbers. This ultra-sensitive AF works in concert with the EOS R’s EVF to clearly capture subjects even when there’s limited light.
Touch and Drag AF
Touch and Drag AF makes it fast and easy to select a focus point without taking your eye away from the viewfinder. Using the Touchscreen LCD, it’s as simple as pointing to the desired area of focus. The chosen AF point is then displayed in the camera’s EVF for quick confirmation.
Variety of AF Modes
The EOS R camera features an expanded range of selectable AF modes to adapt to specific situations and subjects. For example, with Eye Detection AF, when the EOS R detects a human face, it automatically uses the subject’s eye as the autofocus point and maintains focus as the subject moves through the image frame.

Extender EF 2x III
f/8 and f/11 Compatible in All AF Areas
With the EOS R camera, autofocus will operate over nearly the entire image area even when used with compatible f/8 and f/11 lenses. This means the EOS R can easily achieve sharp AF using lenses with smaller apertures, and is even compatible with select EF extenders for uncompromised shooting at an expanded range of focal lengths.

PROFESSIONAL 4K VIDEO
4K 30p, Full HD 60p, HD 120p
Whether shooting videos to share with friends online or serving as a secondary camera on a large production, the EOS R camera offers advanced recording features such as 4K at 29.97 fps, Full HD at 59.94 fps and HD at 119.9 fps. Helpful functions include distortion correction during recording and Movie Digital IS. Additionally, video can be recorded during still photo shooting by simply pressing the Movie Shooting button.
4K IPB/ALL-I MP4 H.264
Built-in Canon Log gamma reduces heavy shadows and blown out highlights, delivering movie images with approximately 12 stops of dynamic range (at ISO 400) for excellent shadow and highlight detail. Ideal for post-production and multi-camera set-ups, Canon Log is an indispensable feature that makes the EOS R camera a serious moviemaking performer.
HDMI Output for 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 Video
Focus Peaking and Dual Pixel Focus Guide
For help when using manual focus, Focus Peaking helps establish the focus area quickly and clearly by indicating the area in focus with a coloured line. It’s usable with the Dual Pixel Focus Guide feature, which displays where the position of focus is relative to the subject and is especially helpful when recording movies.
The EOS R camera features a high-precision 0.5-inch OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) EVF with approx. 3.69 million dots and a 23mm eyepoint. Displaying a bright image and extensive shooting information that rotates with the camera, the viewfinder excels in bright conditions where viewing the camera’s LCD may prove difficult.
The EOS R camera’s electronic viewfinder has been created to provide a bright, sharp and colourful 100% view of the subject at hand. Equipped with an aspherical lens, the EVF shows a crisp and vivid image with minimal aberration or distortion, even when the eye moves off the center of the visual field.
The EOS R camera’s EVF has a bright, 23mm-high eyepoint design that creates a generous 30mm space between your nose and the rear of the viewfinder. This makes it easy to compose and view images in the viewfinder with or without glasses. A dioptric adjustment of -4 – +2 means it’s simple to change as needed to suit various users.
3.69 Million Dots
The EVF’s 0.5-inch OLED based display features approximately 3.69 million dots for an incredibly sharp and detailed image that makes it easy to check focus and view the extensive image data that’s displayed.
The EOS R camera has a flexible 3.15-inch Vari-angle LCD that makes it easy to compose and shoot from virtually any angle. Its touchscreen enables setting changes and more with just a tap.
Multi-function Bar with Customizable Functions
The EOS R camera’s newly designed multi-function bar provides a high level of functionality and customization options for fast, intuitive shooting. Positioned to sit right under the thumb, the touch bar allows the user to change settings, check manual focus, browse finished photos and more.
Dot-matrix LCD Panel
An LCD panel on the top of the EOS R camera features a dot-matrix display that gives real-time information on the camera’s status, recording mode and more. It can be inverted from black to white to suit viewing preferences or the ambient light source.
Flexible Priority Exposure Mode (Fv Mode)
With the EOS R camera’s all-new Flexible-priority AE mode (Fv), you can easily set features such as shutter speed, aperture and ISO to respond automatically or manually for greater convenience and flexibility.
USB Charge Compatible
The EOS R camera is compatible with the USB Power Adapter PD-E1† for in-camera charging via USB. Featuring an industry standard USB-C connector, the USB Power Adapter PD-E1† makes for easy charging without the necessity to remove the battery from the camera.
Especially helpful for wildlife photography, journalism and quiet situations, the EOS R camera has a silent shutter feature that uses an inaudible electronic shutter instead of the camera’s focal-plane shutter.
New Mobile RAW Workflow/Network
Canon’s Digital Photo Professional Express makes speedy processing of JPEGs and CR3 RAW files on a compatible handheld device a breeze. Working with Canon’s Camera Connect app^^^ to create a streamlined wireless workflow, DPP Express lets you adjust settings right on your mobile device, saving files to the cloud, a PC or your camera.
Canon’s Camera Connect^^^ app uses the EOS R camera’s built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® compatibility to connect a compatible mobile device. This allows a number of functions from easy image transfer to remote shooting, to adding GPS information to your photos and videos and more.
The EOS R camera can capture photos as Compact Raw, or C-RAW (.CR3) files, saving valuable time and storage space with ease. Smaller than RAW files, C-RAW files can be processed in camera, can render an L-sized JPEG, are compatible with the Digital Lens Optimizer and more.
Magnesium Alloy Body
Comfortable and solid in the hand, the EOS R camera features a rigid yet lightweight magnesium alloy chassis that enhances body durability while shielding the camera from electromagnetic radiation and heat. It also has a tempered front panel for internal rigidity.
The EOS R camera has a robust, electronically controlled focal-plane shutter that’s rated to approx. 200,000 cycles for consistent and reliable use. It shoots as fast as 1/8000 sec. at up to 8 fps, and up to 5 fps with Servo AF.
Shutter Closes if Powered Off without Lens
The EOS R camera has a mechanism to close the shutter when the camera is powered down and adjust settings accordingly to protect the shutter curtain.
Dust and Water-resistant
The EOS R camera is designed for use in a variety of weather conditions. Sealing materials are used in critical areas, while its precise design and construction help to minimize accidental penetration of dust and moisture in the rest of the camera body.
* Optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS R is required when using EF/EF-S lenses with the EOS R camera.
** Available AF points may decrease when shooting with AF cropping or in movie mode, or depending on camera settings or lens attached.
*** When shooting still photos. Actual coverage varies depending on the lens in use.
