Canon R7 and R10 coming later this year, brings APS-C to RF-Mount
The Canon R7 is expected to be the Canon 7D of this generation. Meanwhile, the Canon R10 will be the more affordable option, similar to the Canon Rebel DSLRs.
Canon has only featured full-frame sensors in its RF-mount line-up. But now, the company moves forward to a more budget friendly market without sacrificing performance.
Canon R7: the 7D successor
The Canon 7D is a legendary DSLR and the new Canon R7 is ready to take its throne. This new RF-mount camera is compact, lightweight and feature-packed.
It has a 32.5-megapixel APS-C sensor that features in-body stabilization. However, it is not backside illuminated nor stacked. It's a regular CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF II.
The Canon DIGIC X processor powers the sensor providing it a fast burst speed. While the 7D back then can shoot 8fps, this camera has a burst mode of up to 15 frames per second or 30 fps when using electronic shutter mode.
Like other premium cameras, the R7 has a dual UHS-II card slot. It also has a dust and moisture-resistant body which means you may use it in extreme conditions. Of course, with utmost care still.
Other features include the beefy LP-E6NH battery compatibility. It is the same as the Canon R5 and R6.
For videographers, the R7 is a delight as it shoots 4K 60fps in 10-bit. 1080p footages can go up to 120fps with no recording limit - a huge plus considering cameras today still has a video limit.
Canon EOS R10: the entry to RF-Mount
Canon has an existing entry level mirrorless camera lineup. But with the emergence of the Canon R10, a more viable and better option is now available.
The Canon R10 is a compact APS-C RF-mount camera that is perfect for beginners, semi-professionals or hobbyists looking for a new Canon camera.
The R10 has a 24.2-megapixel sensor that is common to entry-level mirrorless cameras. However, the DIGICX processor puts it up a notch as it allows for 15FPS shooting and 23FPS using the electronic shutter.
Moreover, the Canon R10 has a quick AF system and an video system that is more than enough for its intended market.
The R10 can also shoot up to 4K at 30fps and 1080p at 120fps.
One noticeable difference between the R7 and the R10 is the card slots. The R10 only has a single UHS-II card slot. It also uses the Canon LP-E17 instead of the LP-E6NH.
