Step Up to Full-Frame

The EOS R8 camera combines high-performance full-frame capabilities with a lightweight and compact design for creators ready to step up their content creation. With a 24.2 megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor, RF mount allowing access to various creative lenses, and powerful stills and video functionality, the EOS R8 camera helps you capture stunning imagery to empower your creative vision.

 


The Lightest Full-Frame Canon EOS Camera

Weighing less than a pound (body only), the EOS R8 camera is incredibly lightweight and compact while offering a high-quality full-frame imaging experience, utilizing the RF lens mount and providing access to a catalog of high-performance creative lens options. This offers photographers and content creators a convenient and portable camera in a comfortable, ergonomic package for travel, hiking, or everyday shooting.

 


High Image Quality Featuring a 24.2 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS Sensor

The EOS R8 camera captures stunning, detailed images with speed and accuracy, even in low light, due to the Canon-developed 24.2-million-pixel CMOS image sensor and DIGIC X Image Processor. The full-frame sensor allows for improved resolution at low ISO speeds and low noise at high ISO speeds, a wide dynamic range of still pictures, and significant improvement in rolling shutter compared to previous Canon cameras when shooting fast-moving subjects and quick panning.

 


In-Camera Compositing

With its built-in image processing, the EOS R8 camera provides in-camera compositing including Moving Subject HDR, Depth Compositing, Panoramic Shot, HDR Night Scene, and HDR Backlight control so you can capture creative imagery that is challenging with conventional single-shot techniques.

 


High-Speed, High-Precision Autofocus

Dual Pixel CMOS AF II is a highly responsive system that covers up to approximately 100% x 100% of the picture area, breaking the image into up to 1,053 automatically-selected AF zones during Whole Area AF. This enables outstanding AF coverage on the EOS R8 camera, and the compositional freedom to focus sharply on a subject nearly anywhere in the frame.


Accurate Subject Detection and Tracking

Developed using Deep Learning Technology, horses, trains, and airplanes are detectable, in addition to conventional subjects like people, animals including dogs, cats and birds, and vehicles — cars and motorcycles — especially in a motorsports environment. For more ease of use, Auto mode is now available, in which the camera automatically selects the type of subject without the need to switch the Subject Detection setting in the menu. The EOS R8 camera will continue to track the movement and continuously focus on the subject.


Animal Detection

Effectively track the whole body, face, or eye of cats, dogs, birds, and now horses, for speed and precision — regardless of the animal’s size, posture, or orientation of the face.

 


Head, Face, and Eye Detection

The EOS R8 camera can locate and focus upon a person’s head, face, or eye when the Subject Detection menu is set to People. This allows for more ease of use, fast acquisition of your subject, and improvements to accuracy when capturing videos or still images, even in difficult shooting situations where many cameras may struggle to detect a subject. Additional control is now available for detecting the subject’s left or right eye – which can be also programmed to a Custom Button making it easy to focus on the preferred eye in the moment.


Ample Features for Video Creators

With video recording features such as 6K oversampled uncropped 4K movie at up to 60 fps, Full-HD High-frame rate movie recording at up to 180 fps, and Dual Pixel CMOS AF tracking, the EOS R8 camera makes it easy to step up your video content.


Continuous Movie Recording That Exceeds 30 Minutes

The EOS R8 camera can continuously record 4K UHD or Full HD video for up to 2 hours at 29.97 fps, allowing you to set up your video and keep your project rolling without worrying about it stopping.


HDR PQ / Canon Log 3

Though the EOS R8 camera can record impressive video straight out of the camera, content creators looking to take the next step in their imaging journey have the choice of two powerful video recording options in HDR PQ or Canon Log 3 video recording. With HDR PQ recording a 10bit color file is recorded that does not require additional editing, this 10bit HDR file is compatible with HDR displays such as TVs, monitors, and smartphones which display your video with even more color accuracy and dynamic range than standard displays. For creators who like to edit their video files, Canon Log 3 is available, creating a 10bit log file that allows for powerful recovery of highlights and shadows as well as creative color grading capability.


UVC Livestreaming

UVC/UAC compatibility allows the EOS R8 camera to be used as a web camera to stream live video in Full HD, without additional computer software, to applications such as Zoom™, Microsoft Teams™, Skype™, and similar video conferencing software7. Thanks to the full-frame image sensor, you’ll be able to have versatility in your exposure, as well as strong background separation when using bright aperture lenses for video conferencing, or livestreaming content.


Vertical Movie Mode and Aspect Markers

Movie rotation information can be set during or after movie recording, allowing videos to be played in vertical composition when viewing on a smartphone. The Aspect Markers Function displays visual markers for different aspect ratios that may be desired for posting the same file to various social media sites. This display provides consideration for proper composition for the different deliverable files that can be created when editing.


Movie Digital IS

Record stable videos efficiently with minimum equipment, even when shooting handheld, with Movie Digital IS 5-axis image stabilization. Camera-shake vibrations are reduced even more through coordinated control of Movie Digital IS when using an RF lens featuring optical image stabilization.


Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD

Featuring a 3.0-inch, 1.62 million dot Clear View LCD II Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD, the EOS R8 camera makes it easy to compose and shoot from virtually any angle. With touch and drag functionality, you can intuitively and swiftly move the autofocus point on the touch-panel LCD.


Precise Electronic Viewfinder

The EOS R8 camera is equipped with a high-precision 0.39-inch OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) EVF with approx. 2.36 million dots and a 22mm eyepoint which displays a bright image and extensive shooting information. The EVF supports up to a 120 fps refresh rate and has been designed to provide a bright, sharp, and colorful 100% view of the subject at hand. There’s also an Optical Viewfinder (OVF) Simulation setting, which provides a higher dynamic range viewfinder image for outstanding viewing in harsh, contrasty lighting situations.


Shoot, Download, and Share with Wired and Wireless Communications

The EOS R8 camera supports both wired and wireless connections to your smartphone via its USB Type-C port, built-in Wi-Fi®, and Bluetooth® technology, making it easy to upload and share movies and photos to your favorite social network services.


Built-in Bluetooth® Capability

Bluetooth® pairing helps you connect the camera to compatible smart devices using the free Canon Camera Connect app. This low-energy wireless connection helps preserve battery life while providing remote control of the camera. It also sends continuously updated GPS location data from your phone, letting you geotag what you've captured so you know precisely where you captured the photo.


Built-in Wi-Fi Capability

Enable wireless functions, such as remote live view, file viewing, and transfer, by connecting to Wi-Fi quickly and seamlessly. Using the Canon Camera Connect app, you can also transfer files to your mobile device to browse and share on social media.


USB-C Connection

The EOS R8 camera can be connected to a computer or smartphone via USB-C. All Canon Camera Connect app features that can be used with Wi-Fi are now available when the camera and smartphone are connected via USB, using a compatible cable for your device.
