Alongside its EOS R7 camera, Canon has announced the R10, a midrange 24MP APS-C mirrorless camera for its RF mount.
At the heart of the EOS R10 is a new 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel AF. Like the R7, it can shoot still photos at up to 15 fps (23 fps with the e-shutter), or capture 4K/30p oversampled video using the full width of the sensor. There’s also a 4K/60p option taken from a 1.56x crop. It can capture 10-bit HDR PQ video, but doesn’t offer the C-Log 3 footage the EOS R7 does.
The autofocus system is effectively identical to that found on the R7, including a revamped system with algorithms derived from the EOS R3 full-frame mirrorless camera. It has dedicated modes for tracking animals, people and vehicles, and no longer has separate AF area and tracking modes. Now, the full array of AF area modes can be used for subject tracking. Also new are several scene modes, including a focus stacking mode, a panorama mode and a panning mode that intelligently selects a shutter speed to offer optimal blur while keeping the subject sharp.
Behind the eyepiece is the same 2.36M-dot OLED EVF found in the EOS R7, but the 3” fully-articulating display on the back of the camera is a 1.04M-dot panel. There’s a single UHS-II SD card slot onboard, compared to the two on the R7 and the list of ports includes USB-C, 3.5mm microphone jack, and micro HDMI port, but no headphone socket.
Likely due to its more compact form factor, the R10 uses Canon’s LP-E17 battery, which has been a standard in its Rebel DSLRs and recent M-series mirrorless cameras. Despite being significantly smaller than the LP-E6NH used by the R7, Canon says it’s CIPA-rated to capture up to 430 shots per charge, using the LCD in power saving mode (or as little as 210 shots per charge via the EVF in smoothness priority mode).
The EOS R10 will be available (body-only) at an MSRP of $979. Kit options are also available with the new 18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM or the 18–150mm F3.5–6.3 IS STM for $1099 and $1379, respectively.
Time To Level Up: Canon Announces EOS R7 and EOS R10, the First EOS R-Series Cameras with APS-C Imaging Sensors
New RF-S18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM Standard Zoom Lenses Also Announced
MELVILLE, NY, May 24, 2022 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today the launch of the new EOS R7 and EOS R10 camera bodies, Canon’s first EOS R-series models with smaller-size APS-C imaging sensor.
Ideal for hobbyists and general photography enthusiasts, the EOS R7 is the quintessential camera to take your photography to the next level. It is a powerful camera choice for those seeking an upgrade to their travel and vacation photos or to capture life-long family memories while opening a new world of creative and professional possibilities. The EOS R10 is perfect for content creators looking for a camera option to capture high-quality action videos and images of sports, wildlife, and motorsports.
As the market share leader for mirrorless cameras in the United States during Q1 of 20221, Canon looks to solidify their position with the addition of new offerings within the EOS R lineup. EOS R7 and EOS R10 provide enhanced video functions and accessories, such as the new multifunction shoe with EOS R7, while still maintaining a high-level ease of use. With a robust mirrorless system at their core, these cameras provide users with a powerful telephoto reach through both still image and video due to the 1.6x crop factor that comes with APS-C sensor cameras.
In addition to its compact size and ease of use, the EOS R7 and EOS R10 also feature:
- 32 million pixels (EOS R7) and 24 million pixels (EOS R10), APS-C size image sensor
- Autofocus (AF): subject detection inherited from EOS R3
- Up to 15 frames per second (FPS) mechanical shutter
- First Canon APS-C camera with up to 7.0 stops Coordinated Image Stabilization
- Dual memory card slots (EOS R7 only)
- Full width 4K video recording at 60p (EOS R7 only), 30p and 24p
- Record each clip over thirty (30) minutes2
- Up to 30FPS with electronic shutter (EOS R7 only)
- Dust and moisture resistant (EOS R7 only)
- In-body image stabilization (EOS R7 only)
Alongside the camera bodies, Canon will release new RF-S lenses – a series of RF-mount lenses that are optimized for the smaller APS-C sensor size of the new EOS R camera system. Marked as the RF-S18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM lenses, these will be the standard zoom lenses for the EOS R7 and EOS R10 cameras. The RF-S 18-45mm provides an 18-45mm focal length, but users will experience a field of view equivalent to 29-72mm lens coverage on a full-frame camera. The RF-S18-150mm lens is a longer-range standard zoom, equivalent to 29-240mm lens coverage on a full frame. While ideal for the new EOS R10 and EOS R7 APS-C sized sensor bodies, these lenses can be used for any R-series camera.
