Canon EOS R


Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS R, offers strong image quality and autofocus, but is held back by its ergonomics and video system.

Proven 30MP full-frame sensor. Vari-angle touch LCD. Big, sharp EVF. 8fps continuous capture. Big shooting buffer. Broad lens compatibility via adapter. Unique native lenses.

M-Fn bar tricky to use effectively. Uncomfortable rear dial. Omits focus joystick. No in-body stabilization system. Inconsistent metering. Single memory card slot. No PC sync socket. 4K video is heavily cropped.

Bottom Line: Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS R, offers strong image quality and autofocus, but is held back by its ergonomics and video system.

Canon EOS R review


Canon's EOS R, the company's first full-frame mirrorless camera, impresses us with its image quality and color rendition. But it also comes with quirky ergonomics, uninspiring video features and a number of other shortcomings. Read our full review to...

The EOS R is Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera, and with a proven sensor and great color output, it's capable of producing really great photographs. But then again, there are many full-frame cameras on the market today that are capable of...

Canon EOS R First Impressions Review


The Canon EOS R is the first full frame mirrorless camera to use the new RF mount. We're well underway putting it through our range of standard tests – take a look at how it compares to the competition and our thoughts on using it so far.

The EOS R is official and it's a big leap for Canon


But the company's long-anticipated full-frame model seems a small, expensive step for mirrorless.

Canon EOS R


What We Love. Brewed up with a blend of 5D Mark IV goodies and forged into a smaller package that costs only a few hundred dollars more than a 6D Mark II or Sony A7 III, the Canon EOS R produces excellent, high-resolution images and features some of...

Canon EOS R Review


The EOS R is Canon's highly-anticipated first full frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (MILC). Though it is first, it is far from Canon's first MILC (the EOS M series is a best-seller in some markets) and far from their first full frame...

Canon EOS R Review


Canon have finally rewarded their loyal fans by jumping on the full-frame mirrorless bandwagon with a radically new camera and, perhaps even more importantly, a completely new lens mount. The EOS R isn't the best full-frame camera on the market, but...

Canon EOS R Review


Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera brings to the table a compact and weather-sealed body, a high-res 30MP sensor, fast Dual-Pixel CMOS AF, and nice 4Kp30 video. There's a lot to like, such as:

Very good overall image quality; Good dynamic range & very good high ISO performance; Excellent Dual Pixel CMOS AF performance; Sharp native lenses; Great performance with adapted optics; Compact design; Fully articulating LCD.

Sensor performance lags behind competition; No In-Body Image Stabilization; Sluggish burst speed with C-AF; Mediocre battery life; No 4Kp60; 1.7x 4K crop; Ergonomics could be better.

Canon EOS R review


Canon have taken a seat at the full-frame mirrorless table

Great image quality ; Fully articulating screen ; Custom controls

Single SD card slot ; High price ; No in-body IS

A good first attempt, but it doesn’t blow us away - Canon will need to up its game for the next iteration of the R series
