Canon Singapore today (24 May 2022) announced the official launch of the much rumoured EOS R7 and EOS R10 mirrorless cameras. Both models come with APS-C imaging sensors, making them the first APS-C mirrorless shooters in Canon’s EOS R series.

Since they are EOS R cameras, the R7 and R10 both use the same DIGIC X image processor that populated the EOS R5, R6, and Canon’s high-end 1D X Mark III. What’s new are the APS-C sensors for both shooters, with the EOS R7 getting a 32.5MP sensor while the EOS R10 gets a 24.2MP sensor.

The new cameras also possess EOS R3’s EOS iTR AF X system, which offers a responsive and reliable autofocusing that relies on AI-powered subject detection.

The combination of compact camera bodies (R7 at 612g, R10 at 429g), fast autofocusing, and APS-C’s ‘zoomed in’ 1.6x natural crop (vs 35mm) makes the new EOS R cameras better suited for long-range photography. 

Both EOS R7 and R10 cameras are capable of 15fps mechanical burst shooting, and 30fps (EOS R7) and 23fps (EOS R10) in electronic shutter mode. These burst modes are faster than any other EOS R cameras by Canon, which is highly advantageous for avian or sports photographers who need to catch the right millisecond of action. Full-resolution RAW images can be done at 30fps on both cameras, and it even comes with 0.5 seconds pre-shooting for photographers who barely miss the golden moment.

EOS R7 offers 7K oversampling to give us 4K30FPS video recording in 4K UHD Fine mode. In 4K Standard Mode, users can get uncropped 4K60FPS footage. The EOS R7 is also the first EOS R shooter that support’s Canon’s Log 3 gamma for colour grading and HDR video production

EOS R10 also can do 4K30FPS but with 6K oversampling instead. But it’s still no slouch, since it supports 4K HDR PQ video recording like the EOS R7. 

Specific to the EOS R7 is sensor-shift type 5-axis in-body image stabilisation. Both cameras also pack Movie Digital IS, a type of digital 5-axis IS that even works with lenses that lack OIS built-in.

 

Two new lenses

Accompanying the new EOS R cameras are two lenses compatible with these shooters and the rest of the EOS R system. 

The RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM are both kit lenses and Canon markets them as starter lenses for new users to the EOS R cameras.

The RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM is a standard zoom lens with 29-72mm (full-frame equivalent), offering typical wide-angle to medium-telephoto range.

The RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM goes much further with its higher maximum zoom, giving us a telephoto shooter with 29-240mm (full-frame equivalent). 

Besides mounting these on the new APS-C EOS R cameras, these RF-S lenses can be mounted directly on full-frame EOS R cameras, which automatically triggers the 1.6x crop.

 

Pricing and availability

The Canon EOS R7 (body only) retails at S$2,049 in late-June 2022, while Canon EOS R10 (body only) goes at S$1,309 in late-July 2022.

The RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lenses are S$479 and S$779 respectively, with their street date starting in late-June 2022.

Buying the Canon EOS R7 with an RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens gives both body and lens at a special price of S$2,649 – it also comes in late-June 2022.
