APS-C models for the EOS R system

Canon introduces its first mirrorless APS-C cameras in the EOS R system: the EOS R7 and the EOS R10. The EOS R7 offers the autofocus speed of top-of-the-line models, while the EOS R10 is a powerful all-rounder. Also being introduced today are two new RF-S lenses: the RF-S 18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM and the RF-S 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM.

The new models adopt the intelligent autofocus technology of Canon's full-frame models. Thanks to Deep Learning and Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, dynamic subjects such as vehicles, animals and people are detected and tracked over 100% of the sensor area with head, face and eye detection.

The EOS R7 and EOS R10 offer autofocus in low-light environments down to -5 EV and 4 EV, respectively, and are ready to use with teleconverters up to f/22. They enable tracking of birds in flight or athletes in motion even under difficult conditions. Both cameras feature Touch & Drag AF, while the EOS R7 is the first in the EOS R system to offer a combination dial and AF Multi-Controller (joystick).

The R7 and R10 feature the fastest mechanical shutter of any APS-C EOS camera at 15 fps, as well as an electronic shutter at 30 and 23 fps, respectively . The EOS R7 offers a maximum mechanical shutter speed of 1/8,000 second and a maximum electronic shutter speed of 1/16,000 second. The cameras are equipped with the latest DIGIC X processor for high-speed image processing response. The additional RAW burst mode captures up to 30 RAW images per second. This series of images is saved as a single file from which frames can be extracted as needed during post-processing. When the PreRec function is activated, the camera also records 0.5 seconds before shooting starts.

8-stage IBIS

The EOS R7's in-camera IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilizer) is perfect for shooting on the move or freehand exposures lasting seconds. As with the EOS R6, R5 and R3, it offers the highest compensation currently available in image stabilization, with up to eight exposure levels.

For the first time on EOS cameras, the IS system is used to level the horizon when the Auto Level function is activated. A new Panorama mode is also available that uses the in-camera IS to compensate for camera shake during panning.

The newly developed 32.5- and 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensors in the EOS R7 and EOS R10 offer a wider range and deliver sharp images even at a distance - ideal for sports and wildlife photography where you want to get closer to the action. Dual Pixel RAW, as well as HEIF, Compact RAW, and HDR modes, open up new freedom in post-processing and allow for better reproduction of color tones. Digital Lens Optimizer automatically delivers the best in-camera JPEGs and corrects aberrations without sacrificing shooting performance.

Weighing just 612g and 429g (with battery and card), the EOS R7 and EOS R10 represent a powerful upgrade, while being more compact and lighter than a comparable DSLR lens combination. The handy EOS R7 is extremely rugged and weatherproof, making it suitable for shooting in tough conditions.

Content in 4K 

For the growing need to capture video as well as stills, the R7 and R10 can record video in 4K 60p or 4K 30p, created by oversampling the 7K and 6K sensor data, respectively, for the best possible image quality. These can be output in HDR PQ (YCbCr 4:2:2 10-bit) in-camera or via HDMI. The EOS R7 has an additional 4K 60p crop mode to extend the range even further - perfect for wildlife filming. The EOS R7 can record up to six hours and the EOS R10 up to two hours in 4K 60p. This opens up the possibility for recording long interviews and events. Both models support recording in HDR PQ (YCbCr 4:2:2 10-bit BT.2020) with a high dynamic range with minimal grading. For those who want to go a step further, the EOS R7 is the first APS-C EOS to support Canon Log 3 and Cinema Gamut, allowing for a more flexible editing process. Both cameras support movie shooting in portrait mode and technologies for optimal image stabilization. The EOS R7 can combine IBIS with optical as well as Movie Digital IS for unbeatable stabilization. The EOS R10 uses data from lenses with optical IS to maximize the effect of Movie Digital IS.


Intuitive design and enhanced connectivity let you customize production processes. The 2.36 million-dot electronic viewfinder offers an OVF simulation mode, making the transition from a DSLR to a mirrorless camera even easier. Customizable dials and a rotating and tilting LCD allow for seamless operation, while focus bracketing has been expanded to include in-camera composition.

The EOS R7 features a viewfinder with 1.15x magnification. With its built-in flash, the EOS R10 is an all-in-one tool for shooting in a variety of environments. With two UHS-II card slots, the EOS R7 also supports instant backup, separate storage of photos and videos, or recording different formats on each card.

For optimal use when storing and sorting, both cameras feature enhanced connectivity via WLAN with Bluetooth. Content can be transferred to its final destination via image.canon, and the camera can be controlled remotely via the Camera Connect app using either a compatible USB Type-C cable or wireless connection. A Clean HDMI output ensures optimal streaming, as well as streaming to YouTube via image.canon. RAW files can now also be uploaded directly to Canon's new Cloud Image Processing service at image.canon. There, image processing is performed using neural networks to further improve the image quality of RAW files.

The EOS R7 and EOS R10 feature the new Multi-Function Accessory Shoe - a first for EOS APS-C models - which provides power and communication for accessories.

New lenses

Canon is also launching two new RF-S kit lenses, the RF-S 18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM, which provide a lightweight and versatile option for the R7 and R10. They expand the RF lens series, which currently includes a total of 26 lenses ranging from 5.2mm to 1200mm.

The RF-S 18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM is a multi-purpose lens for everyday tasks. Thanks to its compact and retractable design, the 18-45mm weighs just 130g, while the RF-S 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM tips the scales at 310g.

With manual focus capability and a lead screw STM for smooth, quiet autofocus when shooting video, it's an essential lens for everyday photography and video capture. The RF-S 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM is a telephoto zoom lens that offers a maximum magnification of 0.59x in MF mode for macro shooting.

Working in conjunction with the EOS R7's In-Camera Image Stabilizer (IBIS) and the EOS R10's Movie Digital IS, these lenses feature Dynamic IS and In-Lens Optical Image Stabilization, which provides up to seven stops of compensation with the RF-S 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM and up to 6.5 stops with the RF-S 18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM. With the 7-blade iris diaphragm, sharp subjects are displayed against a softly drawn background.

With the introduction of APS-C format mirrorless cameras to the EOS R system, Canon is increasing its product selection in an important market segment. Because even though full-frame models are the measure of all things for many photographers, cameras with smaller sensors continue to have a high market share. Canon has dominated this segment for years with its EOS DSLRs and is now back in the mix with its EOS R system. Those who work a lot with telephoto lenses will appreciate the focal length extension factor of around 1.6x, and the sensor size doesn't really play such a decisive role in many other applications either. The new EOS R7 and R10 offer many of the features of their more expensive full-frame sisters and even outperform them in terms of IBIS, among other things. The EOS R10 will be on sale in July for 979 euros, while the EOS R7 is already expected in June at a price of 1,499 euros. The RF-S 18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM will be available for 349 euros, and the RF-S 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM will cost 549 euros.
