Canon has revealed the EOS R7 and EOS R10 cameras, suited for photography enthusiasts and content creators, coming to Australian retailers soon.

Off the back of the Canon EOS R5 C hybrid cinema camera announcement earlier this year, the latest reveal fills a more affordable, enthusiast-level need in the DSLR market. Both upcoming cameras use the APS-C image sensor alongside a mirrorless body and feature Canon’s next-gen RF lens mount.

For photographers, the EOS R10 has a 24.2-megapixel sensor and is capable of snapping 15 photos a second using the mechanical shutter, and up to 23 with the electronic shutter. A bit more powerful, the EOS R7 benefits from a boosted 32.5-megapixel sensor and can capture up to 30 frames-per-second using its electronic shutter.

Budding cinematographers will be able to shoot in 4K using either camera, although the EOS R10 is limited to 4K at 30 FPS, while the EOS R7 can capture 4K video at 60 FPS with the added benefit of in-body image stabilisation. Video editors will also benefit from further editing options because these cameras are the first outside of Canon’s Cinema EOS range to support Canon Log 3 and Cinema Gamut formatting and processing types.

Like the more high-end Canon EOS R5 C, both of the new EOS R series cameras employ Dual Pixel CMOS AF II technology. This helps to automatically track and focus on moving subjects, which is ideal for taking photos and videos of sports and wildlife. 

One of the main differences between the EOS R5 C and the recently announced R7 and R10 cameras is that the R5 C is a full frame body. Conversely, the R7 and R10’s APS-C crop sensor yields a slightly more zoomed-in result, among other differences – which can be handy for when photographers can’t get close to the action.

“Allowing a new audience of photography and videography enthusiasts to access the innovation that drives Canon’s more premium models, the EOS R7 is ideal for enthusiasts looking to upgrade their camera and push creative limits to make their images stand out,” Canon Australia senior manager of producing marketing, Brendan Maher said.

“With its compact size and weight, the EOS R10 is the perfect all-rounder for those considering buying a camera to capture memories on the go with family or while travelling.”

The Canon EOS R10 will be available at retailers in July for $1,499 and can be bundled with one of two new lenses: the RF-S 18-45mm for $1,649 or the RF-S 18-150mm lens for $2,049.

Alternatively, the EOS R7 will be out in late June for $2,349 and can be bundled with the RF-S 18-150mm lens for $2,899. Each lens will also release separately in July: $569 for the RF-S 18-45mm lens, and $899 for the RF-S 18-150mm.
