Canon Unveils EOS R7 and R10 APS-C Mirrorless Cameras; Preorder at B&H Photo Video
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–B&H is excited to announce the Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10—the first R Series cameras to be equipped with APS-C sensors. Alongside these two cameras are two RF-S lenses: the RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM.
Canon EOS R7 Mirrorless Camera
The Canon EOS R7 is equipped with a newly developed 32.5MP APS-C sensor, including Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF tech, that can shoot at up to 30 fps with an electronic shutter. These features, combined with some modern additions, make this camera a great everyday and travel option as well as useful for sports and wildlife.
One feature found in Canon’s mirrorless systems is in-body image stabilization, which makes its return here with the ability to compensate for up to 7 stops with coordinated control IS using compatible lenses. Dual Pixel CMOS AF II is inherited from the flagship R3, benefitting from advanced subject detection for people, dogs, cats, birds, and vehicles.
Video is available at a maximum recording rate of 4K at 60 fps. It’ll do 4K at 30 fps while oversampling the full 7K image area, too. For slow motion recording there is Full HD at up to 120 fps. For those looking for more advanced recording, Canon has equipped the R7 with the Canon Log 3 profile and eliminated the 30-minute recording limit.
This body, while similar to the existing R5 and R6, has been slimmed down. They kept a decent grip, a dust- and moisture-resistant construction, and gave it a fully articulating 3.0” screen. The R7 does offer dual SD card slots for backup recording. A change has been made to the rear button layout. Canon has added a dial and joystick to the right of the EVF. Also, the hot shoe is the new multifunction shoe that supports many accessories.
The R7 is a great camera for those looking to expand their photographic capabilities, whether that means everyday shooting and travel or as a key option for wildlife and sports.
The EOS R10 is a smaller camera that is more optimized for content creators. It has a 24MP APS-C sensor along with Dual Pixel CMOS AF with much of the subject detection tech from the R3. It also offers 15 fps shooting with the mechanical shutter with a boost up to 23 fps with the electronic shutter. It is an impressive set of features for such a camera.
As for video, the R10 is capable of 4K recording at up to 30 fps and does not have a 30-minute recording limit. It does pare down some offerings from the R7 to reduce size and weight as well as make it more accessible for newcomers. It keeps the fully articulating LCD and has an EVF for various monitoring options. Unfortunately, the R10 does not have in-body image stabilization like the R7 and has a single SD card slot.
A Pair of RF-S Zoom Kit Lenses
Alongside these two new APS-C camera bodies is a pair of kit zooms to go along with them. For those looking for a small starter lens, the RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM will do the trick. It will retract when not in use to make it easier to fit into an everyday bag. Designed for APS-C sensors, it provides an equivalent focal length range of 29-72mm. These lenses can even be used on full-frame cameras set to crop mode. The STM AF motor is smooth, fast, and quiet that is optimized for both stills and video. Plus, the built-in Optical Image Stabilization system offers 4 stops of correction or 6 stops of Coordinated IS.
If you want a little more reach out of your kit lens that is where the RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM comes in. This has an equivalent range of 29-240mm to cover practically any everyday shooting situation. It is similar in feature set to the 18-45mm with both built-in IS and an STM AF system. The stabilization on this longer zoom will provide up to 4.5 stops of correction on its own or up to 6.5 stops in Coordinated IS.
Either of these lenses will make a great first pick for users looking to pick up either the R7 or R10.
