Canon has announced the arrival of the EOS R8 and EOS R50 as new mirrorless cameras in India. Both serious amateurs and wedding industry experts will like using the new Canon EOS R8 mirrorless camera. It includes the Canon Log 3 and up to 40 frames per second continuous shooting capabilities of the EOS R6 Mark II with the portability of the EOS RP. The Canon EOS R50, on the other hand, is a portable, lightweight APS-C mirrorless camera designed for vloggers and content creators.

The weight of the Canon EOS R8 is approximately 461g (with battery pack and SD card). It is equipped with Movie Digital IS, which uses digital technology to stabilise images on five axes while recording videos and correct tilt. It has a 24.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor, allowing for the capture of 6K data across its entire width and the production of high-quality cropless oversampled 4K UHD footage at up to 60p. Additionally, the camera incorporates heat suppression features that let you record for an unlimited amount of time at 4K 30p and up to 30 minutes at 4K 60p. When shooting in Full HD at a resolution of 180p or above, the resulting video will be 30p with slowed-down action.

The Canon new full-frame camera includes two modes for capturing 10-bit 4:2:2 high dynamic range video HDR PQ and Canon Log 3. It is asserted that the HDR PQ offers incredible dynamic range and natural colour. Canon Log 3, on the other hand, provides the same level of information but it is not “baked-in,” giving it more flexibility for post-processing processes that are more involved and entail colour grading. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF II technology found in the EOS R6 Mark II is also present in the EOS R8.

The mirrorless camera R8 boasts an EOS iTR AF X system for quick and precise focusing that not only uses deep learning to identify and track people, animals, and moving objects but also “locks” onto other things based on their shape, colour, and brightness.

The AF is still functional in low-light situations because of the low-light restrictions of up to EV-6.5 for still photos and EV-42 for videos. This improves the camera’s usability in low light and works with the high native ISO speed ranges of up to ISO 102,400 (still photography) and ISO 25,600 (video photography).

Canon also introduced two new RF lenses, the RF24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and the RF-S55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM, in addition to the EOS R8. Both of these allow focus breathing correction and provide optical IS up to 4.5 stops equal.

  • Focus breathing correction is a feature of professional cinema cameras that lessens the angle of view’s discernible variations during focusing.
  • False colours and zebras: advanced visual aids for exposure adjustment and setting.
  • Aspect marker display: for easier framing of video to fit various social media dimensions.
  • UVC (USB Video Class)/UAC (USB Audio Class) support: Plug-and-play direct transmission of audio and Full HD video to a computer with just a USB connection; ideal for live streaming.
  • The Multi-function Shoe, a digital interface that permits a cordless digital setup with appropriate add-ons like external microphones, is another feature of this device.

Canon EOS R50

With so many clever features, Canon’s new entry-level APS-C mirrorless camera makes creating videos and other digital content simple and hassle-free. The 1-inch image sensor on the most recent smartphones is three times smaller than the APS-C format image sensor on the EOS R50. As a result, even in low light, photos and videos will be crisper, more detailed, and noise-free. Additionally, users may anticipate stunning, authentic-looking bokeh (shallow focus) effects. The EOS R50’s 24.2 megapixels can also produce excellent Uncrop 4K 30p video oversampled from 6K of data.

The EOS R50 is made for vloggers who want dedicated camera image quality without the typical learning curve associated with using one.

The Dual Pixel CMOS AF II technology, which uses its features to detect and track humans, animals (such as dogs, cats, and birds), and vehicles (such as motorcycles and racing cars), just became smarter. The Movie for Close-up Demo mode swiftly and automatically shifts focus on the subject that is nearest to the camera for close-up demonstrations. With the focus where you want it, you can flaunt your new device or internet shopping haul in one fluid take. When used in conjunction with an RF lens that has in-lens IS, the EOS R50 has two separate Movie IS (Image Stabiliser) levels (‘Enhanced’ and ‘On’) that digitally execute 5-axis camera shaking correction.

The “Movie IS: Enhanced” option by default optimises image stabilisation for handheld wide-angle photography while the monitor is in “selfie” mode by removing the undesired motion that accentuates itself at the borders of wide-angle shots.

You can simply transfer films and JPEG photographs from your camera to a smartphone using the simple-to-install Camera Connect smartphone software using either a wireless Wi-Fi or wired USB-C connection.

The RF-S18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and the RF-S55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM are two kit choices for the EOS R50, which is available in black and white.
