On September 5th, Canon should present its first mirrorless full-frame camera. Already, thanks to Japanese sources, we can not only see how it will look, but we also know almost all the important characteristics of the new Canon EOS R.
Canon EOS R – the new full-frame system
In the wake of Nikon, another giant, Canon, is preparing to present its mirror. EOS R – this will be called a novelty based on a full-frame CMOS sensor with a resolution of 30.3 megapixels. In addition to the rich photo opportunities, EOS R will be able to record 4K videos with the advanced autofocus system Dual Pixel. The camera is equipped with a rotatable display in the spirit of 80D with touch controls, in addition, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will allow you to interact with smartphones and tablets.
The body of the novelty is made of magnesium alloy, most likely the camera will get protection from water and dust, and the net weight of the carcass will be 580 grams. At the top of the screen there is an additional auxiliary display, which displays information with the basic settings, and also if you believe the images, then the working section of the ISO will exceed 40,000 units.
RF – new bayonet with large diameter
Canon, like Nikon, decided to follow the path of increasing the diameter of the bayonet in its new system. Working range in the mirrorless Canon is slightly more – 20 mm, and the name of a new type of fasteners will be RF. This fact tells us that an advanced image stabilizer will be built into the camera. In addition, Canon will also introduce several new RF lenses.
First, 24-105mm f / 4L IS USM, the universal zoom with the focal lengths familiar to all lovers of Canon cameras. Secondly, more effectively and most likely more expensive RF 28-70mm f / 2L. Well, and thirdly, the two fixations RF 35mm f / 1.8 Macro IS STM and RF 50mm f / 1.2L USM. Buyers of new mirrorless Canon apparently will also be offered a special adapter from EF optics to RF, just like Nikon did.
Panasonic is also in the business
The glory and successful sales of full-frame mirrorless Sony do not give rest, not only Canon and Nikon, but also quite successful players in this market. Rumors say that at the end of September, Panasonic can present its full-frame system, the basis for which will be the Leica SL bayonet. And this is despite the fact that Panasonic produces popular GH5 and GH5s, which videographers are very fond of.
