The new Canon R7 and R10 cameras combine RF lenses with APS-C sensors

Canon’s RF-mount range of mirrorless cameras has traditionally focused on high-end models with full-frame image sensors, but the new R7 and R10 models offer smaller APS-C sensors and more affordable prices. The R10 starts at £900 (body only) when it goes on sale in the UK in July, while the more-featured R7 starts at £1,350 when it lands a little earlier in June.

Those prices are a far cry from the £4,300 Canon wants for its professional EOS R5. And while the R7 is priced above the £1,050 of the full-frame EOS RP mirrorless, the R7’s features – notably the higher resolution, faster burst rate and in-body stabilization – mean the R7 offers a better feature set than the cheaper RRP. US prices are yet to be confirmed, but these UK prices are $1,135 and $1,700 respectively.

The R7 is the hero of the pair, boasting a 32.5MP image sensor capable of shooting 4K video at up to 120fps, using the full sensor in Canon’s Log 3 mode for easier post-production will. It can capture full-resolution raw files at up to 15fps with the mechanical shutter or up to 30fps with the electronic shutter.

It also features in-body image stabilization, which when paired with a stabilized lens offers up to eight levels of stabilization. I’ve used Canon’s IBIS on their more professional EOS R5 mirrorless camera and it’s excellent, allowing long exposures of several seconds without using a tripod. For handheld video shooters, it’s a must-have.

The R10 lacks IBIS and Log 3 video capture, but its 24.2MP sensor can achieve raw image capture at up to 23fps. It will also do 4K video, but it uses a crop sensor, meaning tighter framing.

Both models use Canon’s RF mount for lenses, which gives them a much wider range of lenses out of the box than is available on Canon’s cheaper M-mount range of APS-C cameras like the EOS M50. However, RF lenses are extremely expensive, so you should consider this when looking for APS-C cameras to keep your equipment costs down.

However, Canon is releasing two RF mount lenses specifically designed for APS-C sensors, including an 18-45mm f4.5-6.3 and a 18-150mm f3.5-6.3, both image stabilized and available as a kit Lenses are offered with the cameras in different packages.

I have yet to get my hands on the R7 or R10, but their specs look solid given the lower prices. As the physical dimensions of the camera bodies are smaller than the EOS R5 – and much smaller than regular DSLRs like the 7D or 200D – they could be great options for avid travel photographers.
