The EOS R System, Canon's groundbreaking mirrorless camera system, opens up new creative possibilities for photographers and filmmakers. At its heart is the innovative RF Mount, enabling a range of pioneering new RF lenses, including the acclaimed RF 28-70mm F2L USM zoom and innovative RF 600mm F11 IS STM and RF 800mm F11 IS STM prime lenses.
The EOS R, Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera, was revolutionary for photographers and filmmakers. This was joined by the Canon EOS RP, which puts the power of full-frame mirrorless into a small, lightweight body, ideal for amateur photographers who are ready to take their photography to the next level.
Newer additions to the Canon EOS R System range set new standards in full-frame mirrorless photography and filmmaking. The EOS R6 is a hybrid camera capable of capturing incredible images and 4K video in low light, while the EOS R5 combines 45MP high-resolution stills and future-proof 8K movie recording.
The flagship camera in the range, the Canon EOS R3, brought a host of innovations. These include a stacked, back-illuminated sensor that enables 30fps continuous shooting, an astonishing Eye Control AF system that sets or switches the AF point by detecting what you're looking at, and low-light AF sensitivity to -7.5EV.
As well as new cameras, the range of RF lenses continues to grow. These include the RF 5.2mm F2.8L Dual Fisheye, Canon's innovative dual lens for 180° VR capture, as well as the ultra-wide RF 14-35mm F4L IS USM zoom lens and the RF 100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM lens for macro photography. There are also new super telephoto lenses: the RF 400mm F2.8L IS USM and RF 600mm F4L IS USM.
