Canon unveils new APS-C mirrorless cameras with EOS R7 and EOS R10

Canon’s first APS-C models in the EOS R mirrorless camera system are here with the EOS R7 (S$2,049, body only; available late June) and EOS R10 (S$1,309, body only; available late July).

The EOS R7 features a 32.5-megapixel (MP) APS-C CMOS image sensor with Dual Pixel autofocusing (AF) and five-axis sensor-shift in-body image stabilisation (IBIS). It also comes with weather sealing for water resistance and dual SD card slots.

On the other hand, the EOS R10 is the mid-range model with a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS image sensor but without IBIS. It has a built-in flash as well as a smaller and lighter form factor.

Both EOS R7 and R10 are powered by the DIGIC X image processor that allows them to inherit the AF technology of flagship EOS R3. In other words, it is able to track subjects easily across the entire image area.

In addition, both new cameras are capable of shooting up to 15 frames per second (fps) in mechanical shutter mode. In electronic shutter mode, the EOS R7 can go up to almost 30fps continuous shooting while the EOS R10’s continuous shooting speed reaches almost 23fps.

Not to mention, they both possess a RAW burst mode, which shoots full-resolution RAW images at up to 30 fps. This mode supports pre-shooting, which starts recording the scene up to half a second before the shutter is released. So, you will never miss the decisive moment.

At the same time, Canon launches two RF-S lenses that are optimised for APS-C EOS R cameras. They are the RF-S18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM (S$479; available late June) and the RF-S18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM (S$779, available late June).

With the APS-C image sensor’s 1.6x crop factor, the RF-S18-45mm lens will give a 29mm to 72mm focal length range in full-frame equivalent while the RF-S18-150mm covers a longer focal length range of 29mm to 240mm.

Besides the RF-S lenses, the EOS R7 and EOS R10 can also directly take RF lenses designed for full-frame cameras. Conversely, the RF-S lenses can also be mounted directly onto full-frame EOS R system cameras, but it will be automatically have a 1.6x crop.

Apart from the body-only option, the Canon EOS R7 is also available with the RF-S18-150mm as the only kit lens option at S$2,649 (available late June). The EOS R10 will be available in two kit lens options with the RF-S18-150mm at S$1,909 (available late July) and the RF-S18-45mm at S$1,469 (available late July).
