Product Overview

Canon EOS R is a high-end mirrorless camera in the Canon RF-mount system. Introduced by Canon in 2018 as the first model in Canon's full-frame mirrorless game, it comes with a 30 MP (6720 x 4480) sensor and a 3.69 million-dot EVF.
The camera has a usable battery life, though a second battery may be a good thing to keep in your camera bag. The Canon EOS R's 8.0 fps burst rate limits its use for certain types of photography, but it is hardly something that most photographers should worry about.
The Canon EOS R comes with a fully articulated touch display and 5655 autofocus points.

The new Multi-Function Bar on the back is a small, non-moving, touch-sensitive surface. It can be mapped to control things like ISO, white balance, focus features, display info, audio controls and more. The camera delivers beautiful photos, especially with that 50mm f/1.2 lens.

Pros
  • Fantastic autofocus
  • Beautiful image quality
  • Excellent face tracking
Cons
  • No in-body stabilization
  • Shoots 720p video at 30fps

Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
The Canon EOS R is a full-frame mirrorless camera that both impresses and disappoints. On the plus-side it delivers good-looking photos, has a promising new mount with two exotic lenses at launch, great video autofocus, and the best performance from adapted EF lenses. There’s no built-in stabilisation, only a single SD card slot, severely cropped 4k video, modest action shooting capabilities, and lacklustre face and eye-detection. If you’re not brand-loyal, then the Sony A7 III comfortably out-performs it in almost every regard.

Pros
  • Fully-articulated screen and C-log with 10-bit output
  • Excellent image quality
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • No built-in stabilisation
  • No live view or exposure control

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The EOS R is Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera. It's designed to tempt you away from the likes of Nikon's new Z6 and Sony's brilliant Alpha A7 III. It uses a full-frames 30.3MP sensor without an optical low-pass filter. Four new RF lenses are being launched alongside the camera.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • 3.69-million dot resolution
  • 4K video
Cons
  • 1.7x crop factor
  • No in-body image stabilization

Reviewers from digitalpicture have found the following***:
Canon EOS R comes with a new lens mount, the first new Canon full frame lens mount in over 30 years. New lens mount is optimized for the next generation of lenses while EF mount adapters provide easy integration into existing kits. Two significant differences between DSLRs and MILCs are the viewfinder and the conventional AF system.

Pros
  • Very fast and accurate EVF
  • Compact, lightweight design
  • Good battery life
  • Fast autofocus
Cons
  • Fingerprint sensor could be better
  • Not compatible with other Canon products

Reviewers from digitalpicture have found the following***:
The Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS R comes in three different versions. The base version is a no-frills device that simply allows you to use EF, EF-S, TS-E or MP-E lenses on RF-mount cameras. The Drop-In Filter Mount Adapter is the most expensive adapter option, but it can conveniently replace multiple filters.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • Easy to use
  • Customizable Control Ring feature
  • Works with all EF, TS-E and MP-E lenses
Cons
  • High price tag

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
The Canon EOS R uses a traditional-style camera battery. Canon rates the battery at 370 shots, as per the CIPA standard. At £1,029 it’s not cheap, but the RF lineup is burgeoning beautifully. The 24-105mm is a cracker of its type – fast to focus, extremely (extremely) sharp and nice to handle.

Pros
  • Fantastic autofocus
  • Fast to focus
  • Compatible with Canon’s full-frame mirrorless system
Cons
  • Not quite a pro camera
