Canon launches the first EOS R cameras with APS-C sensors

Canon has just announced the launch of two new models in its EOS R family of cameras, the new EOS R7 and EOS R10. These models differ from current models by introducing two new types of image sensors, brand new, but in APS-C format, rather than the usual full-frame (35mm) format used by other cameras in the EOS R range.

Inspired by the extraordinary (still) capabilities of the EOS 7D camera, the new EOS R7 has been developed with the needs of wildlife and sports photographers in mind, who demand exceptional ability to capture moving images, using an autofocus system. art.

The new EOS R7 sensor uses a maximum resolution of 32.5 million pixels and is capable of capturing up to 30 frames per second using the electronic shutter, or 15 frames per second using the mechanical shutter. This sensor also includes an Image Stabilization System (IBIS) for up to 8 steps.

As for the EOS R10, it uses a sensor, which is also completely new, with a resolution of 24.2 megapixels, the ability to shoot up to 23 fps with an electronic shutter or 15 fps with a mechanical shutter, and digital image stabilization (Movie Digital IS).

Both sensors integrate Dual Pixe CMOS AF II technology, which combined with deep learning technology can better track moving objects, such as vehicles, animals and people, with accurate detection of heads, faces and eyes. Both use Touch and Drag AF technology, with the EOS R7 debuting the new Multi Controller AF, which combines a selector wheel and controller.

In terms of video capture, both the EOS R7 and R10 are capable of 4K video recording at 60 frames per second, but the EOS R10 camera captures it by cropping the entire sensor area, which the EOS R7 does not. When used at 30fps, the EOS R10 uses 6K sampling, with the EOS R7 sampling 7K video, ensuring greater resolution and greater detail.

The EOS R7 is the first EOS camera with an APS-C sensor to be able to use Canon Log 3 and Cinema Gamut. Both can record videos longer than 30 minutes each, and over an hour of 4K video recording at 60 frames per second without overheating issues.

In terms of lenses, the new EOS R7 and R10 are the first to take advantage of the lenses of the new RF-S range, with the suffix “S” representing the need to use an APS-C sensor, without cropping, as is the case with the EF range of lenses and EF-S.

So far only two RF-S lenses have been unveiled, the RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and the RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM, the latter being the ideal choice for a more versatile use . Of course, you can use the remaining 26 RF lenses, available between 5.2mm and 1200mm.
