The Canon EOS R8 Camera offers a combination of high-performance full-frame capabilities and a lightweight, compact design. It features a 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor and an RF mount for access to a range of creative lenses. With powerful stills and video functionality, the EOS R8 enables users to capture stunning imagery for their creative projects. The RF24-50mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM standard zoom lens provides a super-compact wide-to-standard focal length range, perfect for wide-angle stills and video, with easy handling and portability. The kit includes the Canon Tripod Grip HG-100BTR for stabilizing the camera on various surfaces, a detachable Bluetooth-enabled remote for remote operation, and the Canon Stereo Microphone DM-E100 for high-quality audio recording, both indoors and outdoors with the included windscreen.

Compact and Functional

The EOS R8 camera is exceptionally small and light, weighing less than a pound (body only), and it offers a high-quality full-frame photographic experience. It also makes use of the RF lens mount and gives users access to a variety of high-performance creative lens alternatives. For travel, hiking, or regular photography, this provides photographers and multimedia makers with a practical and portable camera in a comfortable, ergonomic package.

High-Resolution Images

The 24.2-million-pixel CMOS image sensor and DIGIC X Image Processor, both created by Canon, enable the EOS R8 camera to quickly and accurately produce breathtaking, detailed photographs, even in dim lighting. Wide dynamic range for still images, reduced noise at high ISO levels, and a notable improvement in rolling shutter compared to earlier Canon cameras while shooting fast-moving scenes and quick panning are all made possible by the full-frame sensor.

In-Camera Blending

The EOS R8 camera's built-in image processing allows for in-camera compositings, such as Moving Subject HDR, Depth Compositing, Panoramic Shot, HDR Night Scene, and HDR Backlight Control, allowing you to create images that are difficult to achieve using traditional single-shot methods.

Fast and Accurate Autofocus and Precise Autofocus

When Whole Area AF is enabled, Dual Pixel CMOS AF II divides the image into up to 1,053 automatically-selected AF zones, covering an area up to about 100 x 100 percent of the image. As a result, the EOS R8 camera has excellent AF coverage and compositional freedom to precisely focus on a subject almost anywhere in the frame.

Precise Subject Detection and Tracking

Along with more common objects like humans, dogs, cats, and birds, as well as traditional objects like cars and motorbikes, horses, trains, and airplanes, they may all be identified using Deep Learning Technology, especially in a motorsports context. Auto mode, which automatically chooses the subject type without requiring the user to change the Subject Detection setting in the menu, is now available for more user convenience. The EOS R8 camera will keep up with the motion and keep the subject in focus.

Animal Tracking

Regardless of the size, posture, or facial orientation of the animal, quickly and precisely monitor the entire body, face, or eye of cats, dogs, birds, and now horses.

Numerous Features for Video Makers

The EOS R8 camera makes it simple to improve your video content with capabilities like 6K oversampled uncropped 4K movie recording at up to 60 fps, Full HD High-frame rate movie recording at up to 180 fps, and Dual Pixel CMOS AF tracking.

Head, Face, and Eye Sensing

When the Subject Detection menu has the People option selected, the EOS R8 camera may find and focus on a person's head, face, or eye. This makes it possible to capture films and still images with greater ease, subject acquisition speed, and accuracy, especially in challenging shooting conditions when many cameras find it challenging to identify a subject. The ability to detect the subject's left or right eye is now further controlled, and it can also be programmed to a Custom Button, making it simple to focus on the desired eye at any time.

UVC Live Broadcasting

The EOS R8 camera's UVC/UAC compatibility enables it to be utilized as a web camera to transmit live Full HD video without the need for extra computer software to programs like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, and related video conferencing software. When employing bright aperture lenses for video conferencing or live streaming footage, you will have flexibility in your exposure choices and great backdrop separation because of the full-frame image sensor.

Aspect Markers and Vertical Movie Mode

When watching movies on a smartphone, videos can be played in vertical composition owing to information about movie rotation that can be specified either during or after movie recording. When publishing the same file to numerous social media platforms, the Aspect Markers function provides visual markers for various aspect ratios that may be required. This display offers guidance on correct file composition for the many deliverables that can be produced during editing.

Movie Digital IS

With Movie Digital IS 5-axis image stabilization, handheld videos are produced with little equipment and are inherently stable. Using an RF lens with optical image stabilization reduces camera shake vibrations even more by coordinating Movie Digital IS.

Capture, Download, and Share with Wired and Wireless Communications

With its USB Type-C7 port, integrated Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth capabilities, the EOS R8 camera allows both wired and wireless connections to your smartphone, making it simple to upload and share videos and photographs to your preferred social network services.
