Canon EOS R8 Review

May 3, 2023 | Mark Goldstein | Rating star Rating star Rating star Rating star Half rating star


The new Canon EOS R8 is an entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera which currently sits above the EOS RP and below the EOS R6 Mark II in the now extensive Canon range.

It essentially combines the 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC X processor found in the EOS R6 Mark II with the smaller, lighter body and simpler user interface of the EOS RP.

The Canon R8 offers the same class-leading burst shooting rate of 40fps with the electronic shutter as the R6 II, making it Canon's joint-fastest full-frame mirrorless camera, surpassing even the 30fps mode offered by the range-topping EOS R3.

Note that this camera does not have a mechanical shutter, unlike the EOS R6 II step-up model.

It also offers Canon's renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF II focusing system complete with AI tracking which additionally recognises cars, motorbikes, aircraft and trains in addition to people, cats, dogs, horses and birds.

Other key features include 4K 60p unlimited video recording oversampled from 6K sensor data with no crop, 180fps high frame rate video recording, an expanded ISO range of 50-204,000, OVF simulation mode, wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and webcam and live streaming support.

The Canon EOS R8 body only is priced at £1,699 / €1,799 / $1,499 in the UK, Europe and US respectively. It is designed and made in Japan.

Ease of Use

Canon EOS R8

Measuring 132.5x86.1x70.0mm, the new EOS R8 is a fraction larger than the EOS RP, but it somehow manages to weigh 26g less at just 414g (461g with card and battery fitted).

This does mean that even a standard zoom lens like the RF 24-70mm F/2.8L IS USM feels a little front heavy on the EOS RP, especially when it's zoomed to 70mm as the lens barrel extends further.

Canon have sought to address this by offering the Extension Grip EG-E1 accessory, a nicely designed handgrip extension for the EOS R8 (and RP) which makes it more suitable for both people with larger hands and for using the camera with larger, heavier lenses.

Sadly, however, there is no battery grip available for the R8, unlike the R6 Mark II which has the the optional BG-R10 accessory to improve the handling and extend the already excellent battery life.

The R8 is much lighter and smaller than the EOS R6 Mark II, which weighs 588g body-only or 670g with both a battery and memory card fitted and measures 138.4x98.4x88.4 mm.

Despite the EOS R8's lightweight nature, though, the chassis is actually made of magnesium alloy, and it offers the same level of weatherproofing as the EOS RP.

There's a surprisingly chunky handgrip on the front which is generously sized given the overall dimensions of the camera, with the small but tactile shutter button set into the sloping front of the grip.

On the front of the camera, there's a porthole for the AF assist light, a lozenge shaped button for releasing the lens, and the 54mm diameter RF mount.

Canon EOS R8

Unlike some of the more expensive EOS R-series models, the sensor is not protected by a physical cover when the camera is turned off, instead being left rather more open to the elements.

At the heart of the EOS R8 is the same 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor found in the R6 II. We think that 24 megapixels is the sweet spot for this class of camera, especially given the blistering burst shooting speeds that the R8 offers.

The ISO range runs from 100-102,400, which can be further expanded up to ISO 204,800 and down to ISO 50.

The Canon R8 offers an incredible burst shooting rate of 40fps with the electronic shutter, maintained for 120 JPEG or 56 RAW images.

It can also shoot at 6fps with the electronic first curtain shutter maintained for 1000+ JPEG or RAW images

Both modes support full auto exposure (AE) and auto focus (AF) tracking rather than being locked to the first frame.

There's a tiny amount of viewfinder and LCD blackout between each frame when shooting at 40fps, but it's barely discernible to the naked eye.

Incredibly the R8 can record 1,000 or more compressed raw images when shooting at 6fps before its buffer becomes full. The buffer is much smaller when using the 40fps mode at 120 JPEGs, 100 Compressed Raws, or 56 Uncompressed RAWs.

Canon EOS R8

There's also a very handy Raw burst mode in which the camera can shoot at 30fps for 158 frames with 0.5 seconds of pre-capture built-in, which should help even more with capturing that decisive sporting or wildlife moment.

Canon have decided not to implement an in-camera image stabilisation system on the new EOS R8 model, which is one of the biggest differences between the R8 and the R6 Mark II, which does have IBIS.

We can forgive Canon somewhat for this on the EOS R8, given that it's significantly smaller in both size and price than the step-up model, but at the time of writing you'll need to stump up in excess of £$2K to get a Canon full-frame camera with IBIS.

Also understandable on a camera like the EOS R8 is Canon's decision to only implement one card slot, and for the standard to be SD UHS-II, rather than anything more technologically advanced like XQD cards.

More annoying is the fact that the card slot is shared with the battery compartment in the base of the camera, which means that you have to take the camera off a tripod or gimbal in order to access both the card and the battery.

This issues is further exacerbated on the Canon R8 because it uses the same LP-E17 battery as the EOS RP and M50 mirrorless cameras, rather than the larger LP-E6N battery used in most other EOS R-series cameras.

This provides a rather mediocre CIPA rated life of 220 shots when using the EVF or 370 shots when only using the LCD screen, although you can at least recharge the camera via its USB 2.0 port as well as using the supplied charger.

The EOS R8's EVF has a respectably high resolution of 2.36 million dots, 100% scene coverage and a magnification of 0.70x, perhaps unsurprisingly exactly the same as the EOS RP.

Canon EOS R8

One important difference between the newer and older models is the refresh rate of the viewfinder, which is 120fps on the R8 versus 60fps on the RP.

One key difference is that the new model now incorporates a special OVF simulation mode inherited from the R6 II, which uses HDR technology to simulate a more "real-world" view of the scene.

The R8's LCD screen is a 3-inch unit with 1.62 million dots, which is a noticeable improvement on the RP's rather derisory 1.04 million dot resolution, and it's also similarly vari-angle in nature which makes it a joy to use for both stills and video.

It can also be usefully folded flat against the back of the camera to protect it when in transit in a camera bag.

A proximity sensor is located directly beneath the viewfinder, which automatically switches between the EVF and LCD screen. When the LCD screen is swung outwards, the EVF is cleverly turned off automatically.

A tilting LCD screen always helps to encourage shooting from creative angles and it also helps make the EOS R8 ideally suited to movie-shooting.

As mentioned above, the LCD screen is touch-sensitive, allowing you to control everything from setting the AF point and firing the shutter, navigating the menu systems and browsing your images during playback. It's a very precise, responsive system that's a veritable joy to use.

Turning to the top of the camera, the EOS R8 is again almost completely identical to the EOS RP, with a couple of notable differences that are borrowed directly from the EOS R6 II.

Canon EOS R8

The R8 has a proper shooting mode dial rather than an LCD status panel as on some R-series models, which speeds up the operation of the camera especially if you switch between the different shooting modes a lot.

The Canon R8 offers two relatively new shooting modes - multiple exposure mode (JPEGs only) and in-camera focus bracketing which will be a big pull for many stills photographers.

The M-fn button provides quick access to some of the camera's key controls, including ISO, continuous shooting, AF, white balance and exposure compensation.

The front and rear command dials and small, red one-touch movie record button have also been carried over from the RP to the R8, as has Canon's latest multi-function hotshoe for Speedlites, microphones and other accessories.

The two main changes on top of the R8 are the amalgamation of the Off/On control with the Lock switch over on the right, which leaves room for the welcome addition of a Camera/Movie switch over on the left, making it even easier to switch the camera between these two key shooting modes.

As its name suggests, the Lock switch locks the two control dials on top of the camera and the rear control wheel so that you can't accidentally change the camera's key settings.

The Canon EOS R8 can record 4K video up to 60p in 10-bit, achieved through oversampling from 6K. Note that it doesn't offer 6K/60p ProRes Raw recording using the full width of the sensor, as on the R6 II, which is one of the key video differences between the two models.

1080p slow-motion recording is available with AF support, up to 180fps. There's an official 2-hour time limit on recordin,g compared with 6-hours on the R6 II, and Canon claim that rolling shutter has been significantly reduced.

Canon EOS R8

The EOS R8 also offers several key video features like focus breathing correction, a false colour exposure aid, a 3/5 second pre-recording function, Canon Log 3 profile, and a quick control screen just for video. Vertical video capture is also supported, which is ideal for reels and stories.

There's no AF joystick and/or an AEL button on rear of the Canon R8, which was one of our main criticisms of the EOS RP.

This makes it much harder to set the AF point than on rival cameras, as you have to use the 4-way navigation pad or touch and drag the AF point on the rear LCD instead, both of which are much less satisfying alternatives to a good joystick.

This is definitely something that power users will miss on the EOS R8 and another of the important differences between this model and the EOS R6 II.

You can at least use almost the whole screen when touch and dragging the AF point, or you can apportion a section of the screen, for example the bottom right, to allow you to change the AF point. This is particularly handy if you find that your nose or face is accidentally moving the AF point when you don’t want it to whilst using the viewfinder.

The R8 is the latest Canon camera to feature the next generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF II focusing system for both stills and video. Billed as the world’s fastest AF, the camera is capable of focusing in as little as 0.05 seconds.

It offers 4,897 manually selectable and 1,053 automatically selectable AF points with 100% frame coverage.

Impressively the EOS R8 can also focus in light levels as low as -6.5EV (when used with an F1.2 lens), which is a real boon to low-light shooting.

Canon EOS R8

Thanks to its Digic X processor, the EOS R8 benefits from exactly the same deep-learning based automatic face, eye and animal AF tracking modes as the R6 Mark II.

The AI tracking recognises horses, aircraft and trains as well as humans, dogs, cats and birds, making it one of the most versatile systems currently on the market.

Cleverly, if the camera is set to Face-only AF and the tracked subject exits the frame, it won't automatically then focus on the background, instead re-focusing on the face when it reenters the scene.

It also features a special auto-select mode for subjects, plus the same Flexible AF mode from the EOS R3, and eye tracking functions in all AF modes.

Note that neither the R8 and the R10 APS-C model that was announced alongside it actually have a mechanical shutter. This allows the camera body to be smaller, but may lead to less smooth bokeh when shooting at shutter speeds faster than 1/500th second.

On the rear shoulder of the R8 are three classic Canon controls - the AF-On button for people who prefer back-button focusing, the Auto-exposure Lock button (denoted by a star) and the AF area selection button which makes it easier to switch the autofocus point when holding the camera to your eye.

Underneath the AF-On button are the Info Button and the shared Quick/Set button, which formerly opens the Quick Control screen and provides instant access to 10 key camera controls.

Canon EOS R8

Completing the rear of the EOS R8 are the self-explanatory Playback and Delete buttons located underneath the D-pad.

On the left hand-side of the camera are three rubber flaps housing five different connections. The Canon EOS R8 has a microphone port, headphone jack, remote control port, USB 3.2 Type-C port and a mini HDMI connection.

These are all the things that any enthusiast photographer or videographer would need from a connectivity point of view, other than a full-size HDMI port.

With built-in updated Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 2.4GHz support, the EOS R8 can be easily connected to a smartphone and networks allowing high-speed file sharing and FTP/FTPS transfer.

The R8 can also be remotely controlled using Canon's Camera Connect and EOS Utility apps and tethered to a PC or Mac via Wi-Fi or high-speed USB 3.2.

It also offers the ability to easily operate both as a webcam or for live streaming via UVC/UAC, simply by connecting the camera to a computer.

Image Quality

All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 24.2 megapixel Fine JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 8Mb.

The Canon EOS R8 produced still images of outstanding quality during the review period.

This camera produces noise-free JPEG images from ISO 50 all the way up to ISO 12800, with noise first appearing at ISO 25600. The faster settings of 51200 and 102400 display quite a lot of noise, but they're still fine to use for making smaller prints and web images. Even the fastest expanded setting of ISO 204800 can be used at a push.

The EOS R8 proved to be very capable in low-light, with the maximum shutter speed of 30 seconds and the Bulb mode allowing you to capture enough light in all situations.

The various different Picture Styles and Creative Effects are a real benefit, all of which can be previewed before you take the shot, as are the HDR settings, focus stacking and multiple exposure modes.

Support for the latest HEIF 10-bit file format is still a little thin on the ground, but should offer a degree of future-proofing if it's more widely adopted.


ISO sensitivity can be set between ISO 50 and ISO 204800 in full-stop increments. Here are some 100% crops which show the noise levels for each ISO setting, with JPEG on the left and RAW on the right.

The new Canon EOS R8 is a successful fusion of the smaller, lighter body and simplified control layout of the entry-level EOS RP with the sensor, processor and auto-focus system of the prosumer EOS R6 II.

It consequently offers a lot of the cutting-edge features of the latter, most notably the amazing auto-focusing system, lightning-quick 40fps burst shooting and 4K/60p video recording with no crop, all at a significantly lower price point that alone should help to make the EOS R8 a very popular camera.

Sure, there are a few downsides to following the design of the EOS RP almost to the letter, with the lack of IBIS, no AF joystick on the rear, a single shared memory card/battery compartment and very short battery life being particularly annoying for more experienced power users.

On the upside, the inclusion of the new Camera/Movie switch, higher-resolution LCD screen, 120fps EVF, direct webcam support and the latest multi-function hotshoe are all worthwhile handling upgrades when comparing the R8 with the now much older RP.

For many users the much smaller and lighter body of the EOS R8 will be a distinct advantage when comparing it to the R6 II, as will the aggressively smaller £1,699 / €1,799 / $1,499 price-tag.

In terms of similarly-priced rivals, Sony have the previous-generation but still very capable A7 III and Nikon offer the slightly cheaper Z5, both of which feature built-in IBIS, but we'd still pick the R8 ahead of them thanks in no large part to its AF system and burst shooting.

Overall, the new Canon R8 successfully fills the full-frame gap between the now aging RP and R models and the latest EOS R6 II, whilst being an attractively specced and priced alternative to Canon's higher-end APS-C models.

Review Roundup

Reviews of the Canon EOS R8 from around the web. »

The Canon EOS R8 kind of does it all. Whatever your photographic medium, this camera can shoot it. The R8 does not scrimp on the technology, using the same sensor and processor as the R6 Mark II, with the latest subject recognition and tracking, 24.2MP images, ISO all the way up to 102400, and that blistering 40 frames per second shooting speed. So what’s the catch? Well, ergonomic compromises have been made, with no joystick or thumb dial on the back of the camera, no IBIS, smaller LP-E17 batteries that won’t shoot as long, and only one awkwardly placed SD card slot.

At the end of 2022, Canon introduced the EOS R6 Mark II, which we found to be a superb all-rounder for serious enthusiast photographers, with a 24.2MP full-frame sensor and advanced subject-detection autofocus. Now, the firm has taken the same sensor, image processor and AF system and placed them inside a smaller and simpler entry-level body based on the current EOS RP.
Read the full review » »

The Canon EOS R8 essentially takes the sensor of the higher-end R6 II and packs it into a simpler, lighter body more akin to the entry-level RP. As such it’s perfectly positioned between those two models, delivering the photo, video and autofocus of the R6 II at a much more affordable price.
