Summary

    Compact x Ultra-High Speed x High Image Quality 

    Compact Full Frame Hybrid Camera

    The EOS R8 is a full-frame mirrorless camera that weighs only about 461g (including battery and memory card, body only weights 414g) but packs a powerful punch with high performance photo and video features. This is the ideal content creation tool for budding photographers and videographers who need something powerful yet portable.


    24.2MP Full Frame CMOS Sensor

    EOS R8 is equipped with a high-speed 24.2MP Full Frame Canon CMOS and DIGIC X Image processor, realizing ultra-high speed image processing and high image quality. Users can enjoy a wide range of expressions using wide field of view and exaggerated perspective by utilizing the wide-angle lens lineup of RF and EF lenses (requires Mount Adapter EF-EOS R). The rich background blur (bokeh), uniquely produced by the large sensor size, can also attract users. The RF lens lineup includes a great number of fast lenses centered on single focal lenses. The emphasized background bokeh makes the subject stand out beautifully.

    Furthermore, noise is less likely to occur than with an APS-C size sensor with the same number of pixels, demonstrating full-frame sensor strength in shooting at high-sensitivity settings. The standard ISO range of EOS R8 is ISO 100 to 102400, it can be further expanded to ISO 204800, which allows users to capture clear images with fewer noise in extreme low light condition.


    40 FPS High Speed Shooting

    EOS R8 supports up to 40FPS1 high speed continuous shooting with Auto Focus / Auto Exposure Tracking when using electronic shutter2 , with providing up to 1/16000sec5. shutter speed. With electronic 1st curtain shutter, EOS R8 is capable to capture up to 6FPS6. This makes EOS R8 capable to capture unanticipated moments.

    RAW Burst Mode

    EOS R8 is also equipped with RAW burst mode7. RAW Burst mode provides non-cropped approx. 30FPS and AF-tracking burst shooting up to approx. 129 shots (UHS-I SD). Also, by turning on pre-shooting, shooting can start about 0.5 second before the shutter button is pressed, the camera can capture the decisive moments that are nearly invisible to human eyes.


    Creative Imaging Functions

    New [Moving Subjects] option in HDR Mode

    In addition to the conventional HDR PQ (Single shot) and HDR mode [Dynamic range] priority (3 shots composite), EOS R8 includes a new [Moving Subjects] option in HDR Mode .

    People, animals, and vehicles, which were difficult to shoot because the subject moved between frames while shooting three shots, can be captured while a wide range of gradations is expressed through a single shot, even in scenes with a wide dynamic range and a large difference in brightness.

    Normal Shooting

    HDR Mode: [Moving Subjects] shooting

    Panorama Shot

    EOS R8 incorporates the Panorama Shot in SCN mode, which allows taking up to 200 shots at a time and the camera will merge them to form a high-resolution and high-quality panorama shot.

    Focus Bracketing & Depth Composition

    By using the Focus Bracketing feature in the EOS R8, users can choose to shoot up to 999 shots to capture different focus points within a scene. These shots are then automatically stacked together through the “Depth Compositing” feature within the camera to achieve an image that is sharp across with a deep depth of field.


    Other Imaging Functions

    • High Frequency Anti-Flicker Shooting (50Hz to 8192 Hz) inherited from EOS R3 to accommodate LED lighting8
    • New 2x and 4x Digital Tele-converter to extend the reach without switching lens9
    • New Cloud RAW Processing10 for high quality JPEG/HEIF development utilizing image processing algorithm developed through deep learning

    Advanced subject recognition
    and tracking auto focus

    EOS R8 adopts the Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, providing up to 100% AF coverage area11 with 1,053 frame zones. EOS R8 also features EOS iTR AF X (intelligent Tracking and Recognition) inherited from EOS R3 with AF algorithm developed using Deep Learning technology for high performance Subject Recognition and AF tracking of people, animals3 and vehicles4.

    More advanced subject recognition and tracking auto focus

    Auto Subject Detection

    New Auto Subject Detection detects and selects people, animals or vehicles as subject automatically, User can take photos of people, animals, and vehicles without considering the camera settings.

    New Right Eye or Left Eye priority AF

    New Right Eye priority or Left Eye priority in Eye Detection AF, which is a helpful feature when shooting a person with a shallow depth of field using a large-aperture lens.

    Animal Detection3        

    In addition to dogs, cats and birds, animal detection3 now supports detection of horses (racing horses, zebra and ponies etc) even with rider.

    Vehicle Detection4

    Vehicle Detection4 is enhanced to cover train (high speed trains, conventional trains and steam locomotives) and airplane (jet planes and helicopters) in addition to motorsports (automobiles and motorcycles). With Spot detection setting, the driver cab of high speed train or cockpit of airplane can be detected.


    Tracking reliability increased by
    the expanded range of deep learning technology application

    Improved AF tracking performance even subject change posture or brightness change by applying deep learning technology to extract subject features during subject tracking, which applies to animals, vehicles and any other subjects selected by user

    Whole Area Tracking Servo AF

    EOS R8’s “Whole Area Tracking Servo AF” is possible from any one of the 8 “AF Area” modes, including 1-point AF or Flexible Zone AF, for flexible AF operability.

    “Whole Area Tracking Servo AF” can also be turned on or off during AF or continuous shooting (via customized button).

    Touch and Drag AF

    When shooting with EVF, AF Point position can be selected with [Touch and Drag AF] or detected subjects can be switched by tapping the LCD screen with [Tap to Select Subject to detect].

    High Specification EOS Movie features

    Non-cropped 4K UHD 50p/60p & Canon Log 3

    6K oversampling non-cropped 4K UHD 50p/60p

    EOS R8 supports high quality non-cropped 4K UHD 50p/60p movie (H:100%; V: 84.4%), which is oversampled from rich 6K RGB data for higher image quality with less moiré and minimal color distortion and noise.

    Continuous recording of non-cropped 4K UHD 50p/60p movie for 30mins or longer possible.

    Increased CMOS sensor readout speed reduces rolling shutter distortion of 4K 25p/30p movie by approximately 50% when comparing to EOS RP (4K 25p).

     

    Non-cropped FHD 150p/180p high frame rate movie

    EOS R8’s non-cropped FHD 150p/180p high frame rate movie supports 6x slow motion movie.

    Canon Log 3

    EOS R8 is compatible with Canon Log 3 which is widely used in CINEMA EOS SYSTEM. Canon Log 3 provides 13.3-stop dynamic range at ISO 800. Canon Log 3 is suitable for HDR recording materials because it can express gradation even in high-contrast scenes where blown highlights are less likely to occur than Canon Log. In addition, since EOS R8 supports Cinema Gamut, the movie materials shot with the camera can be utilized for various purposes. 

    Movie Digital IS

    EOS R8's Movie Digital IS performs 5-axis correction (pitch axis, yaw axis, roll axis, horizontal direction, vertical direction) to produce natural images with minimized camera shake. Moreover, when an RF/RF-S lens featuring Optical Image Stabilizer is attached to the camera, camera-shake blur can be reduced more effectively through coordinated control of Movie Digital IS and lens IS. Stable movie images can be recorded even with handheld shooting, which is a popular among creators when shooting vlogs.


    Focus Breathing correction 12

    With typical camera lenses, the change in focus point would result in a slightly change in angle of view due to the lens adjusting the focus distance. This is know as “Focus breathing”. In the past, the focus breathing can only be suppressed by using of high end cinema lenses, such as EF Cinema Lens.

    Focus Breathing Correction12 is now supported in EOS R8 to correct change in the field of view due to focusing based on the lens ‘s optical design value. This function enables high-quality movie recording with suppressed focus breathing.
