Canon released two new cameras, a lighter and cheaper full-frame entry-level new machine is here

On February 7, Canon launched two new bodies equipped with RF mounts, namely the full-frame EOS R8 and the APS-C format EOS R50.


The EOS R8 is a relatively entry-level model in the EOS R full-frame body system, and its positioning will be a little lower than that of the EOS R6 series. It is expected to be a low-cost entry-level full-frame camera built according to the trend of modern functions.

The EOS R8 follows the fuselage design of the EOS R series, and the bulge on the bow of the warship appears smoother. The right side of the warship head is the shutter button, record button, front and rear dials, and PASM mode counter, and the left side is the same as the newly launched R6 II for still and video shooting mode switching.

The camera switch is placed on the rear dial, and there are still three gears for switching and locking for users to choose.

In addition to Canon's rollover screen, the rear of the EOS R8 retains conventional buttons such as menu, AF ON, information button, playback button, delete button, and four-way navigation button. The four-way navigation key has no dial structure, and the middle key can call out the shortcut menu.

There are interfaces and card slots on both sides of the fuselage. EOS R8 comes with a single SD card slot supporting UHS-II. On the other side, there are micro HDMI interface and USB 3.2 Gen2 USB-C interface. USB-C can be directly connected to mobile phones and computers Data transmission, but also to connect the microphone and two 3.5mm interface for monitoring.

In addition to the 3.5mm interface, the EOS R8 is also equipped with a hot shoe that supports audio signal transmission, and can be connected to a hot shoe microphone such as DM-E1D to record sound.

EOS R8 single body weight is 414g, after installing the battery LP-E17 and memory card is 461g, a little lighter than the previous EOS RP with similar properties, it is currently the lightest body of the EOS R full-frame system.

In terms of image quality, the EOS R8 is equipped with a 24.2-megapixel full-frame sensor and a DIGIC X image processor. The photos support HDR and HDR PQ shooting modes. The HDR mode for moving subjects can be turned on in the camera to reduce the impact of objects caused by movement. resulting in HDR compositing effects.

The in-camera 180° panorama shooting mode previously launched on the EOS R7 is also added to the EOS R8 this time.

After the mode is turned on, the camera will take photos at a speed of 5fps. The user only needs to move in the desired direction, and a 180° panoramic photo will be automatically synthesized in the camera after completion.

EOS R8 also has an automatic depth-of-field synthesis function. The camera’s built-in depth-of-field synthesis function and focus bracketing function will be used together. Without external software processing, EOS R8 can directly create a deep depth-of-field photo. For It is a relatively simple function for users who need full-frame clarity when shooting products and landscapes.

In terms of focusing, the EOS R8 is equipped with the second-generation full-pixel dual-core focusing EOS iTR AF X intelligent recognition and tracking system.

The fuselage supports the recognition of various subjects such as people, animals, racing cars, and other means of transportation, and also supports automatic focus and tracking within the full-screen range. The efficiency of R8 autofocus.

There is no built-in mechanical shutter and anti-shake structure in the fuselage. The maximum continuous shooting speed supported by the electronic front curtain shutter mode is 6 frames per second, and the maximum speed can reach 40 frames per second under the full electronic shutter mode. Both modes are Autofocus and autoexposure tracking are supported.

Without the five-axis anti-shake structure of the fuselage, the EOS R8 supports the linkage between electronic anti-shake and lens anti-shake. Although the stability can be improved after the linkage, the electronic image stabilization still needs to be cropped, and there is a trade-off in the viewing angle.

In terms of video, the EOS R8 supports 4K 60fps video shooting under 6K oversampling, and 1080P 180fps slow-motion video without cropping.

The camera supports lens breathing compensation, Canon's C-Log3 and HDR PQ two shooting modes, which are convenient for users who need to adjust the color after shooting.

In terms of pricing, the price of the EOS R8 National Bank body is 10,499 yuan, and the price of the kit with the newly launched RF 24-50mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM is 11,999 yuan. The new set of RF 24-50mm F4.5-6.3 The stand-alone price of IS STM is 2299 yuan.


In addition to the EOS R8, Canon also launched the more entry-level APS-C frame body EOS R50 this time.

The positioning of the EOS R50 is similar to that of the previous EOS M50. They are all aimed at entry-level users who pursue simple shooting and hope that the imaging and shooting experience is better than that of mobile phones. Therefore, EOS R50 is closer to the direction of lightness and ease of use in terms of design and function.

The body design of the EOS R50 is also very compact, and boys with big palms can easily hold it with one hand. The fuselage is available in black and white. This is also the first EOS R series fuselage with other colors.

The body weighs 329g, which is about 188g lighter than the similarly positioned EOS M50. The weight difference between black and white is not as big as that of the EOS M50, and the 328g black body is only 1g less than the white body, which is almost negligible in the hand.

The button design is relatively simple, the upper side only retains the design of the single front dial, the handle part has a separate ISO button, shutter, recording button and PASM dial, and there are only two gear switches under the dial.

The back is still Canon’s traditional rollover touch screen. The buttons have a center button that integrates a four-way navigation key with a shortcut menu function and several regular buttons. The touch screen supports touch functions for dragging and sliding playback control. Canon officially stated that EOS R50 The touch interaction logic is closer to that of a mobile phone.

The right side of the fuselage has a 3.5mm microphone interface, and the hot shoe can be connected to the microphone of the Canon hot shoe. The machine is equipped with a USB-C interface. In addition to directly transmitting data with smart devices like the EOS R8, it can also be connected to a computer through a USB-C to C cable, turning the EOS R50 into a live camera.

In terms of configuration, the EOS R50 also uses a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor and DIGIC X digital image processor, with a more automated advanced A+ mode shooting and a creative bracketing mode that generates multiple automatic recommendation solutions in one shot.

EOS R50 is equipped with the second-generation full-pixel dual-core focusing and EOS iTR AF X intelligent tracking and recognition functions. It is also 100% full-screen focusing and supports tracking of people, motorcycles, racing cars and other objects. The camera supports artificial intelligence autofocus, and the focus mode can be automatically switched between single focus and servo autofocus modes.

The EOS R50 without a mechanical shutter supports 12 frames per second continuous shooting in the electronic front curtain mode, and the electronic shutter can increase to 15 frames per second.

For video, the EOS R50 supports 4K 30fps without cropping and 1080P 120fps without cropping. After the camera is connected to the computer through a USB-C to C cable and becomes a live camera, it supports short videos that will be used to display the product during the live broadcast. Close-up presentation mode.

The EOS R50 also does not have body anti-shake, but it can achieve a higher anti-shake gear through electronic anti-shake and lens collaborative anti-shake linkage, and also added the automatic level calibration function that appeared when the EOS R7 was launched.

In terms of pricing, the single body of the EOS R50 is priced at 4599 yuan, and the kit with the RF-S 18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM lens is priced at 5599 yuan. Canon also launched a RF-S 55-210mm F5-7.1 IS STM telephoto lens, priced at 2699 yuan.
