Canon recently unveiled its latest camera in its mirrorless range, the EOS R series, officially in India. Called EOS R10, the new APS-C sensor camera is aimed at vloggers and content creators.
The digital imaging company also hosted an experiential event and workshops for aspiring vloggers and content creators, and discussed various aspects of vlogging and content creation, and how to better monetize their online businesses.
Speaking at the event, Manabu Yamazaki, President and Chief Executive Officer of Canon India, said: “At Canon, we are giving great impetus to the growth of photography and videography culture through our range of innovative products and our customer-centric market activations. We are extremely excited to unveil the latest EOS R10, the perfect companion for content creators and other initiatives that can help their careers grow.
He added, “With the EOS R10, we aim to meet the diverse needs of content creators while serving as an affordable entry point to Canon’s EOS R system’s mirrorless technology. Compact and powerful, the Canon EOS R10 is best suited for content creators to find their story and uniquely tell it through daily vlogs, reels and shots in any given environment.
The camera, despite its small form factor, comes with some very cool features that come in handy for quick content creation. The EOS R10 sports a 24.2MP APS-C sensor with a 1.6x crop factor. The sensor has a wide ISO speed range of 100-32,000, giving it excellent low-light performance with minimal noise and grain.
The EOS R10 inherits its focusing capabilities from the full-frame EOS R3 and features the Dual Pixel CMOS AF II autofocus system. Basically, the R10 has the ability to differentiate between elements in the frame and determine which subject to track. The EOS R10 can recognize people, vehicles and animals – such as cats, dogs and birds – following them as they move anywhere in the frame.
The EOS R10 also comes with a 3-inch vari-angle articulating touchscreen that lets you select focus point while shooting video just by touching the screen. Speaking of videos, the R10 is capable of shooting uncropped 4K UHD videos which are processed from rich 6K RGB data. Additionally, it can shoot 4K at up to 60 fps and 1080p at up to 120 fps, allowing users to create truly smooth cinematic shots.
The EOS R10 also comes with a ton of great features like In-Camera Panorama which stitches together up to 200 shots or photos to create one large composite panoramic image. It also comes with an in-camera focus bracketing function, which allows users to stitch up to 999 exposures with different focal points into 1 super sharp image. Features like these are especially useful when creators want to highlight a certain location or product.
The EOS R10 was priced at Rs 80,995 for the body only and Rs 1.17,995 for the body and the RF-S18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens combo.
