Canon EOS R8 Review


In the R8, Canon gives us high-end features and functionality in a compact, lightweight, low-priced camera.

Canon EOS R8 Review: Budget Full Frame Power With Compromises - SlashGear


The Canon EOS R8 takes parts from a couple of different cameras and makes a new product that's high in value, but only if you need this sort of power.

High Performance at a Low Price ; Fantastic Low Light Images ; Full Frame 4K60 Footage

Cheap Construction ; Lacking in Physical Controls ; Overheats at Highest Video Settings

Canon EOS R8 Review


The new Canon EOS R8 full-frame mirrorless camera integrates the image quality and autofocusing from the more expensive EOS R6 Mark II with the smaller, lighter and simpler body of the cheaper EOS RP. Is the resulting camera a resounding success or a...

Canon R8 Review


Last week, we headed down to charming Charleston, South Carolina, for a hands-on experience with Canon's latest cameras and lenses ahead of the official announcement. Joined by our peers in the press, we tested out the new APS-C Canon EOS R50, which my...

Whether shooting in dreary, dark overcast conditions surrounded by old, ivy-laden trees or walking around picturesque and historic Charleston, the Canon EOS R8 was a joy to use. The lightweight body and intuitive menus made it easy to pick up and...

Canon EOS R8 review


The Canon EOS R8 packs most of the up-market attractions of the EOS R6 Mark II into a smaller, lighter and less expensive package, with a few compromises along the way.

All in all, the R8 packs a quart into a pint pot and literally punches well above its weight. It gives you everything you need to capture pro-grade stills and video in a package that’s compact and lightweight enough to take along for the ride, wherever...

The Canon EOS R8 is a remarkably light and powerful full-frame camera – with some ergonomic compromises

Canon EOS R8 review: full-frame, simplified


Does this mashup of the EOS RP and EOS R6 Mark II hit the sweet spot?

Excellent tracking and autofocus ; Very affordable for a full-frame camera ; Lightweight and compact form factor

Low-resolution EVF and LCD screen ; No IBIS ; Small battery means shorter battery life

The Canon EOS R8 is one of the cheapest full-frame cameras on the market, and while it is missing some high-end features you won’t find a better full-frame camera for this price. Its design and handling are beginner-friendly, but if you’re more...

Hands on: Canon EOS R8 review – quality performance for a friendly price


Much of the EOS R6 II tech, in Canon's lightest full-frame mirrorless camera

Same 24MP sensor as EOS R6 II ; Canon's lightest full-frame mirrorless camera ; Excellent video features ; Decent price for a Canon

Modest battery life ; Basic control layout considering feature set ; No IBIS

In this day and age, new tech that costs less is always welcome, and what Canon has done with the EOS R8 is create a full-frame camera with serious power, in a low-cost simplified body. It is positioned and priced between the EOS R6 II and EOS RP and a...
