Canon EOS Ra Mirrorless Camera (Body Only)

Capture the intricacies of a starry night sky with the new EOS Ra camera — Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera dedicated to deep sky and night sky photography. Building on the success of the EOS R, the EOS Ra offers 30x magnification in both the viewfinder and in Live View shooting for more accurate focus and roughly 4x more transmission sensitivity of hydrogen-alpha (Hα) rays (656.3 nm) for more vivid, deep-red hues of nebulae, making it ideal for astrophotography enthusiasts. Sharing many of the same advanced features of the EOS R, including a 30.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, a high-precision electronic viewfinder (EVF) and Dual Pixel CMOS AF with 5,655 manually selectable AF positions, the EOS Ra is capable of capturing and pinpointing dim stars that are difficult to see with the naked eye. A Vari-angle LCD touchscreen allows for comfortable composition at any angle and easier framing when shooting vertically, especially when the camera is mounted to a telescope. Featuring 4K video recording at up to 30 fps, along with 4K time-lapse capabilities, the movement of stars across the night sky can be recorded in brilliant clarity and detail. With a trusted design that’s been specifically enhanced for astrophotography, the EOS Ra proves the age-old adage is true: the sky’s the limit!

Modified Filter for Enhanced Night Sky Recording

Positioned in front of the CMOS imaging sensor, The EOS Ra’s infrared-cutting filter is modified to permit approximately 4x as much transmission of hydrogen alpha rays at the 656nm wavelength, vs. standard EOS R cameras. This allows for a higher transmission of deep red infrared rays emitted by nebulae, without requiring any other specialized optics or accessories.

RF Mount Compatible with RF and EF/EF-S Lenses

The EOS Ra camera is designed to integrate smoothly into existing EOS systems. Engineered to work seamlessly with RF lenses, it maintains complete compatibility with EF and EF-S lenses by using one of three optional Mount Adapters. When using EF-S lenses, the EOS Ra even crops automatically to reflect the APS-C sized sensor the lenses are designed for.

30.3 MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 8 Image Processor

The EOS Ra is Canon’s first astro-dedicated mirrorless camera that features a Canon-developed and produced 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approx. 30.3 effective megapixels. It employs the DIGIC 8 Image Processor to enhance the speed of operations across the board. This means fast, efficient performance and phenomenal image quality for big prints, impressive 4K video and more.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF

The EOS Ra camera’s highly responsive Dual Pixel CMOS AF system features an incredible 5,655 manually selectable AF points and can deliver sharp focus within approximately 0.05 seconds. This means fast action can be captured and focus can be maintained with speed, accuracy and ease.

4K 30p, Full HD 60p, HD 120p

The EOS Ra camera offers advanced recording features such as 4K at 29.97 fps, Full HD at 59.94 fps and HD at 119.9 fps. Helpful functions include distortion correction during recording and Movie Digital IS. Additionally, video can be recorded during still photo shooting by simply pressing the Movie Shooting button. Beautiful time-lapse videos can also be created in 4K simply and easily with the dedicated Time-lapse Movie mode – ideal for capturing movement of the stars across the night sky.

3.69 Million-Dot EVF with Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD

The EOS Ra camera features a high-precision 0.5-inch OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) EVF with approx. 3.69 million dots and a 23mm eyepoint. Displaying a bright image and extensive shooting information that rotates with the camera, the viewfinder excels in bright conditions where viewing the camera’s LCD may prove difficult.

The EOS Ra camera features a 3.15-inch, 2.1 Megapixel Clear View LCD II Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD. An LCD panel on the top of the camera features a dot-matrix display that shows information on the camera’s status, recording mode and more.

Sophistication in a Lightweight, Compact Size

With a compact, lightweight and comfortable design, the EOS Ra camera reflects Canon’s decades of experience designing and manufacturing cameras. With an intelligent layout of buttons, dials and screens, the EOS Ra is intuitive for new users and feels familiar to EOS users, offering advanced features and nimble operation.

High Magnification Ratio of 30x in Live View

The EOS Ra camera gives you the choice of standard, full-frame viewing in 5x or 30x magnification – this is the first Canon EOS camera with 30x capability. This feature provides you with a tool for extremely precise focusing upon small stars and other astrophotography subjects.

Impressive Durability

Comfortable and solid in the hand, the EOS Ra camera features a rigid yet lightweight magnesium alloy chassis that enhances body durability while shielding the camera from electromagnetic radiation and heat. It also has a tempered front panel for internal rigidity.

Silent Shutter

The EOS Ra camera has a silent shutter feature that uses an inaudible electronic shutter instead of the camera’s focal-plane shutter.
