In additional EOS R was introduced by Canon in September 2018. It belongs to the Mirrorless Cameras category.
Canon is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Canon.
The EOS R has a Full frame CMOS sensor with size of 36 x 24 mm² (1.41" x 0.94").

The 1-Euro coin has a diameter of 23.25mm.
The EOS R's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 31 megapixel. The resolution is far above average and will easily be sufficient for years to come. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed in A2 size or larger, even if unwanted parts of the photo have to be cropped.
The EOS R features a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning.
|Sensor area||35.80 x 23.90mm²|
(1.41" x 0.94")
|Resolution (physical)||31.70 megapixel|
|Resolution (effective)||31.30 megapixel|
|Pixel size||28.70 µm²|
|Mount||Canon R Mount|
The EOS R uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 3.68 megapixel, an excellent value for a viewfinder like this which makes the camera a joy to use.The magnifcation is c. 0.76x, an excellent value for an electronic viewfinder.
The EOS R's shutter speed varies from 1/8000s to 30s.
|Max. shutter speed||1/8000s|
|Min. shutter speed||30s|
The EOS R's sensitivity is from 100 ISO and 40000 ISO.
Also, Canon's sensitivity can be boosted to 102400. Therefore, ISO boosting will lead to growth noise.
|Min. sensitivity||100 ISO|
|Max. sensitivity||40000 ISO|
The EOS R supports all general exposure modes.
The Canon allows spot exposure for the difficult occasion.
|Auto Focus Properties|
The EOS R's auto focus processor uses 5955 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when panning the camera).
Manual focus is also possible with the Canon, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.
|Type||Phase Detection, Contrast Detection|
The EOS R doesn't feature a built-in flash. That is not unsusual in this camera category.
A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Canon's hotshoe.
The EOS R features a monitor with a diagonal of 80.00mm (3.1 in.) and a resolution of c. 2.10 megapixel. A resonable value that will make it easy to evaluate images directly in-camera.
The camera's display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.
The EOS R's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.
Display characteristics at a glance:
EOS R video supported the resolution with 3840 x 2160 pixel.
Also the camera is equipped with an external microphone.
Canon EOS R Video parameters:
|Max. resolution||3840 x 2160 pixel|
|...with frame rates||24 frames/second|
|Connectivity & Wireless Specs|
The EOS R has Wi-fi connection. You can transfer photos to a mobile or laptop using wi-fi.
For photo transferring users may use Bluetooth option.
Eventually, if the wifi connection is disabled the wired connection may be used.Connect the Canon to a monitor or TV set over HDMI.
USB 3.0 is already supported by the Canon. USB 3.0 greatly speeds up transferring images and videos to the computer.
The camera supports SD HC and SD XC cards.
Memory cards characteristics:
The Canon EOS R has a LP-E6N LiIon battery. The battery provides a shooting life of 370 shots. It`s enough for one day or more.
The battery can be charged over USB while in camera. Very useful, especially on vacation when most people bring a USB charger for their smartphone anyway.
The EOS R's battery battery parameters:
|Battery life||370 photos|
The Canon EOS R's size is 135.8 x 98.3 x 84.4mm³. (5.3" x 3.9" x 3.3"). That dimensions are without lens. The weight of camera is 5.3" x 3.9" x 3.3" grams (660 oz.) without lens weight.
