Coming from our friends at Mirrorless Comparison, here is a neat Canon EOS R7 vs EOS R8 comparison review. The 10 main differences are:

  1. Sensor: The R7 offers higher resolution, but the larger sensor of the R8 delivers greater dynamic range and less noise at high ISO.
  2. Video: Sharpness and dynamic range are very similar, but the R8 provides better quality in 4K 50/60p due to oversampling, while the R7 employs line-skipping. The full-frame camera also exhibits less rolling shutter and noise at high ISO. On the other hand, the APS-C model excels in internal heat management.
  3. Stabilisation: The R8 lacks in-body stabilization, requiring reliance on lenses with optical stabilization. This gives the R7 and its IBIS mechanism an advantage in scenarios involving slow shutter speeds, or when walking during video sequences. Surprisingly, the R8 paired with an IS lens performs better when recording static shots.
  4. Shutter Mode: The R8 doesn’t feature a full mechanical shutter, utilizing only the EFCS (Electronic-First Curtain Shutter), which can introduce limitations under specific conditions and settings.
  5. Continuous Shooting Speed: With the electronic shutter, the R7 operates at up to 30fps, while the R8 achieves a faster 40fps. The full-frame camera exhibits less rolling shutter, a weak point in the R7. The buffer performance is more or less comparable.
  6. Autofocus: The R8 employs more advanced software, resulting in better detection of humans, animals, and vehicles. It also offers greater consistency in keeper rate and focus precision, especially in low-light conditions and when capturing birds in flight.
  7. Design: The R7 boasts a larger grip, an AF joystick, and additional buttons. The EVF and LCD screen remain the same.
  8. Battery Life: The R7 employs a larger battery and can last significantly longer, particularly in video mode.
  9. SD Cards: Only the R7 comes equipped with two card slots.
  10. Price and Lenses: The cost is relatively close in the U.S., but the R8 is pricier in Europe. Currently, there are only three native RF lenses designed for APS-C cameras. R7 users must rely on full-frame EOS R lenses or adapt Canon’s DSLR lenses. Support for third-party brands remains uncertain at the moment.

Canon EOS R6 vs EOS R8 Comparison Review, And 10 Differences

EOS R6 Vs EOS R8

Here is a Canon EOS R6 vs EOS R8 comparison review, and a highlight of the 10 main differences.

Canon EOS R6 at a glance:

  • 20MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC X Image Processor
  • 4K60p and FHD 120p 10-Bit Internal Video
  • Sensor-Shift 5-Axis Image Stabilization
  • 12 fps Mech. Shutter, 20 fps E. Shutter
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF II with 1053 Points
  • 0.5″ 3.69m-Dot OLED EVF
  • 3″ 1.62m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
  • Subject Tracking with Deep Learning
  • Dual SD UHS-II Memory Card Slots

Canon EOS R8 at a glance:

  • 24.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
  • 4K60p 10-Bit Internal Video, Canon Log 3
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder
  • 3.0″ 1.62m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF II
  • 40 fps Electronic Shutter
  • Movie Digital IS
  • Vertical Movie Mode
  • Microphone Input, Headphone Output
  • Multi-Function Shoe, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth

Coming from our friends at Mirrorless Comparison, here is a neat Canon EOS R6 vs EOS R8 review. The 10 main differences are:

  1. Image Quality: The dynamic range and high ISO performance are very similar between the two cameras. The primary distinctions lie in the R8’s additional 4MP and its skin tone rendering with in-camera JPGs.
  2. Movie Capabilities: Both cameras offer the same 10-bit internal recording quality (dynamic range, ISO), but the R8 has fewer overheating issues and doesn’t crop the sensor in 4K. (Although the 1.07x crop on the R6 is hardly a significant concern.)
  3. Image Stabilisation: The R6 features 5-axis in-body stabilization, which extends the usability of slow shutter speeds for still photos and produces steadier footage while walking. That said, pair the R8 with a quality IS lens, and you’ll get more out of it than you would initially think.
  4. Autofocus: The R8 boasts more advanced subject detection software and performs better in low light. Both cameras excel in bird photography.
  5. Shutter and Continous Shooting: the R8 is faster with the electronic shutter (40fps vs 20fps) but doesn’t have a full mechanical shutter, only the EFCS (Electronic-First Curtain Shutter).
  6. Extra Features: The R8 includes Dual Pixel RAW, Focus Stacking, Breathing Compensation, and a USB plug-and-play webcam function.
  7. Design: The R8 is lighter and more compact, whereas the larger R6 offers several advantages such as a bigger battery, additional buttons, a larger grip, and an improved viewfinder.
  8. Viewfinder and LCD: The R6 boasts a larger viewfinder with greater resolution, particularly convenient for those wearing glasses. Both cameras share the same touch-sensitive, vari-angle rear LCD.
  9. Cards and Battery: The R6 is equipped with two card slots and a larger battery, providing extended longevity for both stills and video.
  10. Price: The R6 carries a higher price tag when purchased new, though the discrepancy isn’t substantial in some regions. Considering second-hand prices, the R6 often becomes the more favorable choice.

Canon EOS R8 Review (exemplary entry-grade option, DPReview)

Canon Eos R8 Review

Here is a Canon EOS R8 review.

Canon EOS R 8 at a glance:

  • 24.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
  • 4K60p 10-Bit Internal Video, Canon Log 3
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder
  • 3.0″ 1.62m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF II
  • 40 fps Electronic Shutter
  • Movie Digital IS
  • Vertical Movie Mode
  • Microphone Input, Headphone Output
  • Multi-Function Shoe, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth

The folks at DPReview posted their full Canon EOS R8 review. They gave it a Silver Award and a rating of 87%. Form their conclusion:

While the EOS R8 is hardly the highest-performing camera we’ve seen from Canon lately, it is an exemplary entry-grade option. It gives camera buyers most of the performance of the higher end EOS R6 II, but in a simplified package, rendering it straightforward enough for those trying a modern full-frame camera for the first time. The small shape and light weight make it easy to handle, and convenient to pack for a trip with its kit lens in tow.

[…] The biggest problem that the Canon EOS R8 runs into time and time again is its weak battery life. Although from a features and image quality perspective the R8 is highly competitive, the battery life is worst-in-class. On paper and in our experience, this is the camera’s Achilles heel, with anything intensive destroying battery life. With competing cameras like the Sony a7C or Nikon Z5 you’ll get up to double the number of images on a single charge. In an age where we have DSLR-like battery life from high-performance mirrorless cameras, the EOS R8 feels like the bad kind of throwback. If you pick up an EOS R8, spend the money for a spare battery – or a USB-C PD battery pack.

The Canon EOS R1 Might Have A New Kind Of EVF

Nab 2023 Canon Eos R5 Mark Ii Canon Eos R8 CP+ 2024 Mark Ii Canon EOS Rf 24-50mm R6 Mark Ii Rf Mount Eos R6 Mark Ii Rf 300mm Rf 35mm Canon Eos R100 Rf 24mm F/1.8 Rf-s Canon Eos R7 Eos R100 Canon High Resolution Eos R R10 Eos C5 Canon Canon Eos R1 Eos R5c Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses Rumor

A new rumor surfaced, and it is about the Canon EOS R1. Nothing to write home about, though, and no reason to take it without a massive amount of salt.

Besides suggesting the EOS R1 will launch in 2024 (yes, now it is 2024), the source of the rumor suggests the Electronic View Finder of the EOS R1 might have these specifications:

  • 7.x million dots
  • 0.7 inch OLED
  • 60 – 240hz refresh rate
  • Variable refresh rate possible
  • 4000nit brightness
  • Blackout free

All good and nice, and maybe also some educated speculation. As I told many times before, rumor sites know nothing, they just speculate. The only ones who leak serious stuff are a handful of Japanese sites.

Forget rumors, enjoy life and snap pictures.
