Canon's first step in the mirrorless evolution, the Canon EOS R Body combines a redeveloped lens mount and updated full-frame image sensor to create a unique and sophisticated multimedia camera system. Revolving around the new RF lens mount, the EOS R body helps you make the most of a new series of lenses and optical technologies. digiDirect sells the Canon EOS R body on its own for a great online price, allowing all photographers to experience the sophistication.
The EOS R features a high-resolution 30.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor along with a DIGIC 8 image processor. This offers a wide sensitivity range up to a native ISO 40000, fast continuous shooting to 8 fps, and UHD 4K30 video recording. In addition to imaging, the sensor also facilitates an advanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, which uses 5655 selectable points for quickly and accurately acquiring focus. For those working in extremely dark conditions, the focusing system is also sensitive down to EV -6. The AF system is also perfectly matched to the UHD 4K video recording capabilities, which are also rounded out by Movie Digital IS to minimise camera shake, built-in Canon Log gamma for a greater dynamic range, and 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 output over HDMI for even greater colour control.
Beyond performance, this digital camera body has been designed to feature a high-resolution 3.69m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder for clear and bright eye-level viewing. The camera also features a rear 3.15" 2.1m-dot LCD touchscreen and has a swivel design to suit working from high and low angles. Also catering to your tactile needs is a customisable Multi-Function bar, for intuitively adjusting shooting settings. As your camera travels with you, Canon has ensured the magnesium alloy body is dust and moisture sealed to protect it in the toughest environments.
A large 30.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor is featured and provides the ideal balance between high-resolution output, low-light performance, and high-speed capabilities. When paired with the DIGIC 8 image processor, the Canon EOS R affords a native sensitivity range of ISO 100-40000, which can be expanded to ISO 50-102400 for use in a variety of lighting conditions. Quick continuous shooting to 8 fps is also supported when photographing moving subjects.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar way to camcorders in how they acquire focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of 5655 phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system acquires focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects. For videos, a Movie Servo AF mode offers a smooth and natural focus when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority.
With the benefit of a Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is now easier thanks to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognise subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery. Additionally, the focus system is sensitive down to EV -6 for working in truly low-light conditions and maintains accurate AF capabilities.
Designed for multimedia image-maker, this mirrorless digital camera supports UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution recording at up to 30 fps at 480 Mb/s, along with Full HD 1080p shooting at 60 fps and HD 720p at 120 fps for slow motion playback. When recording in-camera, 4K video has 4:2:2 sampling and 8-bit colour depth, a 4:2:2 10-bit clean output in ITU-R CT.2020 is possible when using an external recorder.
Integrated Canon Log enables users to capture flat images with an improved dynamic range of 800%, or 12 stops. This function makes it easier to match cameras in post-production as well as provides the most latitude and potential for colour grading. A View Assist function is available for monitoring, which emulates a graded look for more accurate viewing on the camera's LCD.
Audio can be recorded using the on-board stereo microphone or an optional external mic can also be used via the 3.5mm mic jack.
First introduced with the EOS 5D Mark IV, Dual Pixel RAW allows photographers to record all the information the sensor's unique pixel architecture can deliver, providing a way for fine adjustments to be made after the image is taken. These adjustments include focus fine tuning, which can help you slightly adjust the focus point to bring out extra details, shift bokeh around to improve the composition, and reduce the impact of ghosting on your photos. To get these great capabilities you will need to use Canon's Digital Photo Professional software.
