Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10

Some very exciting new from Canon! Not one, but TWO new EOS R cameras and two brand new RF-S lenses. RF-S lens? That's right, the new Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10 are APS-C aka "crop sensor" mirrorless cameras for the EOS R system... and they're rather special!

Canon EOS R7

The EOS R7 is Canon's flagship APS-C EOS R mirrorless camera. It packs precision AF, state-of-the-art image stabilisation and incredible speed into a next-generation mirrorless EOS R series body. The result is a true hybrid camera: able to tell stories with still and moving images. With you on every step of your creative journey.

What's the difference between the Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10?

These hybrid mirrorless cameras share a lot of impressive specifications. However, as you'll have seen above, there are some key differences between the two.

Eos R7 vs EOS R10

Key differences between EOS R7 and EOS R10 cameras:

·         Better video features including C-Log

·         IBIS (in-body image stabilisation)

·         Bigger images - 32MP vs 24MP

·         More rugged design and pro-feel

·         Dual card slots

There are lots of other subtle spec differences between these two new EOS R Mirrorless cameras. The EOS R7 is designed as a successor to the EOS 7D series, whereas the R10 follows on from the EOS 70/80/90D line or DSLR cameras.


Should I buy the EOS R7 or the EOS R10?

The EOS R7 is positioned slightly higher up the line-up and would make a very capable second body for professionals already shooting with the EOS R6 or R5. It's also the perfect camera for enthusiasts with a particular interest in sports or wildlife photography.

A more rugged feel to the R7 and professional handling and button layout will make this an ideal camera for photographers who are used to high end and professional cameras. For existing DSLR users this is a great step up from an EOS 7D Mark II.

The EOS R10 is an excellent all-rounder, perfect for beginner photographers or existing Canon 1200D / 1300D or 750D / 850D DSLR users to step up to and expand their shooting options. But, thanks to the sheer number of features brought down from the existing EOS R range, it's not going to limit your creativity.

Vloggers looking for a capable stills camera and an easy-to-use video camera will love the R10. New photographers stepping up from their phone and looking for an affordable entry into the EOS R mirrorless system will be amazed at the capabilities of this camera.

For travel photographers, the EOS R10's very small size and low weight make it the ideal choice when combined with the new RF-S 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM lens.


What about EOS M?

Existing EOS M series photographers may be disappointed by the news of a new APS-C sensor camera from Canon, particularly as their lenses won't work on the RF mount and as yet there's no news of a lens adapter. However, the price point for the EOS R10 and the affordable and lightweight RF-S lenses means that photographers now have a way into the powerful EOS R system, which didn't exist previously.


Is the DSLR dead?

Does this mean the Canon DSLR is dead? We don't think so. The EF-RF lens adapter means that you can use your existing Canon EF lenses in place of RF lenses. We think Canon will continue to make entry level or beginner DSLR cameras below the £600 price point with this in mind. But, it's certainly looking like the mid range / enthusiast / crop-sensor professional cameras from Canon will only be available as mirrorless cameras going forward.

The good news for existing DSLR users with existing Canon EF lenses is that for initial orders for the EOS R7 and EOS R10 cameras, you'll get a free Canon Mount Adaptor EF-EOS R included in the box*.

*Initial stocks will include the adaptor free of charge. This is suspected to run until September 2022, but may change if initial orders far exceed demand. Whether you will receive a free lens adaptor will be made clear on the product page at the time of ordering.
