Canon Japan published a customer advice about some batches of Canon EOS R10 cameras and EF 50mm f/1.2L lenses.

Canon found the following issue with Canon EOS R10 cameras:

A small part of this product makes a loud noise […] when the built-in strobe fires.

CANON EF 50mm f/1.2L

Some units of the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L lens might have this issue:

When shooting in a high temperature environment, the exposure may not be as intended, resulting in variations in the brightness of the images shot in the same scene, or an error “Err01” may occur.

How to find out if your lens is affected? Check the serial number. Canon states:

Some of the EF50mm F1.2L USM interchangeable lenses for single-lens reflex and mirrorless cameras produced in 2022.

Lenses with the 10-digit serial number printed on the lens body (see the figure on the right) whose four digits from the left are “1840”, “1940”, “2040”, “2140”, and “2240” are eligible.

CANON EOS R10 Review (likeable little camera, handles nicely)

Eos R10 Review

Here is a Canon EOS R10 review, Canon’s most entry-level, APS-C mirrorless camera with RF mount.

At a glance:

  • 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF II
  • 4K30 Video, 4K60 with Crop; HDR-PQ
  • 23 fps E. Shutter, 15 fps Mech. Shutter
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED EVF
  • 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
  • Multi-Function Shoe, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Amateur Photographer posted their full Canon EOS R10 review. From their conclusion:

After a decade of tinkering half-heartedly with the EOS M system, it seems Canon has now decided to take APS-C mirrorless more seriously. With the EOS R10, it’s produced a likeable little camera that ticks most of the boxes we’d expect for a £900 body. It handles nicely , in a fashion that existing Canon users will find very familiar, while delivering attractive images . Its autofocus system and continuous shooting speed are both in a different league to anything that Canon – or indeed anyone else – has previously offered in this price range.

Compared to the competition, the camera’s main flaws are its small viewfinder and lack of in-body stabilization . But the biggest problem is the lack of native APS-C format RF-S lenses , or indeed any roadmap for upcoming releases. in having a camera that allows you to change the lens, if you can’t buy a sensible set of lenses to use with it. Unfortunately, Canon doesn’t even offer an APS-C telephoto zoom to complement the kit zoom, let alone a wideangle zoom, or some compact bright primes. You can use full-frame RF lenses, but only a few look really well matched to the EOS R10 in terms of size and price; perhaps the Canon RF 50mm F1.8 STM, RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM, and the Canon RF 100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM.

Is The Canon EOS R10a Canon’s Next Mirrorless For Astrophotography (2023?)

Canon Eos Ra Astrophotography

Is Canon set to release a Canon EOS R10a camera for astrophotography? That’s suggested in a rumor we got.

The no longer available Canon EOS 60Da was the last astrophotography-dedicated camera with an APS-C sensor Canon released (in 2012). Then we got the little talked about Canon EOS Ra (released at the end of 2019 and also no longer available). It’s a mistery to me why the EOS Ra was so neglected by reviewers and users.

Is the next Canon camera for astrophotography on its way? Maybe it is. The rumor we are reporting comes from a known source but there is no clear indication of a release date and some things might have got lost in translation. We consider the rumor to have some likelihood to be reliable yet recommend you apply an appropriate amount of salt. The fact that the EOS Ra has already reached end of life might be a sign that the rumor is not just a fantasy.

As for the announcement, from the message we got we understand that it will not happen in 2022. Some indications in the message point to an announcement in Q1/Q2 2023. Time will tell.

Specifications-wise you might expect the same as in the EOS R10 with the exception of the removal of low pass filters on the imaging sensor and the usual tricks to get the right wavelengths for astronomy photography.

Stay tuned.
