EOS R8 Let's you Freeze the Action & Capture Rare and Fleeting Moments

Shoot decisive moments with high speed at up to 40 frames per second. The electronic shutter generates no shutter noise, making it useful when shooting wildlife, concerts and other situations where you want to stay quiet and unnoticed.

0.5 second pre-shooting with RAW Burst up to 30 frames
The EOS R8 allows you to shoot RAW bursts of up to 30 frames per second with 0.5 second pre-shooting, helping you capture the decisive moment in sharp focus even before you've pressed the button. Capture scenes from 3 or 5 seconds before recording in video.

Advanced Subject Tracking

The EOS R8 supports tracking for a wide range of subjects, including humans, animals (dog, cat, bird, horse) and vehicles (car, motorcycle, train, aeroplane). It automatically responds to dynamically changing scenes, and can track subjects over the entire frame. The high performance subject tracking gives you the freedom to focus on composition.

Incredible Low-light Performance

Take advantage of the EOS R8's high sensitivity performance with normal ISO of 102400 for stills and 25600 for movies. Capture high quality images with minimal noise in dark setting or at night.

Focus Bracketing

Create high definition images that are in focus from the front to the back of the picture such as macro subjects.

Panoramic Photo Mode

Fit more into your photo with panoramic mode. The panning direction can we set horizontally or vertically for high rise buildings.

New HDR Mode [Moving Subject]

Reproduce tone with a wide dynamic range even in situations with a large gap in brightness with moving subjects.

New Generation Multi-function Shoe

Enhance communication with the new generation multi-function shoe compatible with accessories such as the Speedlite EL-5 and Directional Stereo Microphone DM-E1D.
