Japanese camera maker Canon has launched its first full-frame mirrorless camera dubbed as the Canon EOS R in India. The 30.3MP camera comes with four new RF lenses, two super-telephoto EF lenses, and one prime EF-M lens.
The new Canon EOS R price in India starts at Rs 1,89,950. However, with the EOS R kit that includes RF24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens, the camera will cost Rs 2,78,945. Canon also unveiled four types of new RF mount adapters to complete the EOS R ecosystem.
Canon EOS R Camera Features
The Canon EOS R sports an electronic viewfinder and is powered by Digic 8 imaging processor. The new Canon EOS R camera comes with features like advanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF, High-density AF points, Multi-function slider bar, Flexible AE Mode and High-speed data communication RF mount.
The 54mm diameter RF lens mount with its short back-focus of 20mm and 12-pin contact points for better communication between the lens and body is the unique feature of Canon EOS R. The mount is a combination of optical, mechanical and electronic excellence that helps in full-frame lens designs, faster autofocus, and flow between the camera and lens.
The new full-frame mirrorless camera also has Eye Detection AF which can detect your eye’s pupil while making sure that your eyes are always in the focus and thus retaining the sharp image.
Commenting on the launch, Eddie Udagawa, Vice President, Consumer Imaging and Information Centre, Canon India, said,
“The new Canon EOS R system comes equipped with the revolutionary 54mm mount, the latest DIGIC 8 processor and focus speed of 0.05 seconds, making it all set to further evolve the photography culture in the country.”
