EOS R8 is Canon's Lightest Ever Full-frame Mirrorless Camera
The new EOS R8 is Canon's lightest full-frame mirrorless camera to date, weighing in at just 461g including a memory card and battery.
It looks a lot like the diminutive EOS RP whilst inheriting the sensor, processor and a lot of key features from the EOS R6 Mark II. These include 40fps burst shooting, 24.2 megapixels, 4K/60p video and Dual Pixel CMOS AF II.
The Canon R8 will be available in late April 2023 priced at £1699 / $1499 body only.
Make the leap
Step up to full-frame photography and video and realise your creative ambitions.
Give your creativity a full-frame upgrade with this lightweight mirrorless camera that delivers superb photos and video. Enjoy better bokeh, wider angles of view, and image quality that will blow you away, even in low light.
When you’re ready to take your next creative steps, reach for the full-frame EOS R8. Its large sensor gives superb image quality, beautiful bokeh, and lets lenses take a wider view. It’s a true hybrid – able to deliver outstanding 24.2 megapixel photos and oversampled 4K 60p video that will take your content creation to the next level. Our unique Dual Pixel CMOS AF II recognises and tracks subjects, whether you’re working in low light, shooting video or capturing action at up to 40fps.
See the difference with next-level image quality
A full-frame, 24.2 megapixel sensor combines detail, speed and low-light performance at up to ISO 102,400. Capture details in the brightest and darkest parts of a landscape, and create portraits with beautiful bokeh.
Get serious about video
Shoot documentaries and independent films that stand out from the crowd. 4K footage at up to 60p, oversampled from 6K, looks sensational. Pro-filmmaking tools, such as Clog3, make it easy to shoot and colour grade your best work.
Lightweight design, heavyweight features
Our lightest full frame camera yet. At just 461g, the EOS R8 is great for content creators and anyone shooting events on location. A dedicated switch lets you swap between photo and video modes, retaining settings in each one.
Intelligent focusing that’s simply smart
Our class-leading Dual Pixel CMOS AF II recognises subjects even near the edges of the frame, and tracks them even if they briefly vanish from view. Shoot portraits or interviews and the AF locks on to a subject’s eyes, face, head or body.
Connected to your workflow
Connect to smart devices, Wi-Fi networks and laptops to share photos and movies with followers and friends, thanks to built-in Wi-Fi and ‘always on’ Bluetooth 4.2. You can even control the camera remotely from your phone and use the EOS R8 as a high-quality webcam.
