At the heart of the EOS R system lies the new mount communication system is one of the major features of EOS R system and the RF mount.
"By being able to place a lens with a large diameter close to the focal plane, the degree of
optical design is enhanced dramatically. The four lenses developed as the first stage of the RF
have realised these advantages."

Promises of the New Mount Communications Mount System
Expand the power of expressions in your photos with EOS R's enhanced stabilisation and operability.
"With near real-time high-speed, communication and communication command innovation, it is now
use the in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer and real-time display of shooting distance information on
lenses. I think these are straightforward messages to the user that the EOS R system expands the
possibilities of expression."

DUAL PIXEL CMOS AF
EXCELLENT MOVIE SHOOTING FUNCTIONALITY
Large-diameter, high-resolution RF lenses
All Canon RF lenses offer extremely high-quality
imaging performance throughout the entire image. Prime lenses can achieve a full
open aperture of f/1.2 while zoom lenses can provide a constant f/2 brightness
throughout its zoom range.
The EOS R system opens up new possibilities to capture images in high resolution, with
more subtle details and beautiful bokeh. All this allows you to express photographic
nuances that were not possible before.
Wider AF coverage; Approx. 88% vertically x 100% horizontally
The area covered by autofocus has been expanded
to allow you to use AF even when composing pictures in which subject is in a corner
of the frame.
DUAL PIXEL CMOS AF
The system was developed to allow you to take AF-based photos with even greater speed
simplicity than the EOS system. AF photos can be taken in a wider range of shooting
making use of the advantages of the Dual Pixel CMOS AF.
High-precision electronic viewfinder
Never miss another shot with the high-resolution
0.5-inch, 3.69 million-pixel OLED EVF. Everything you will need to compose the
perfect shot is available at a glance. Relevant data is displayed in the EVF so that
you can comfortably perform everything from shooting preparation, to shooting,
settings adjustment, and playback while looking through the viewfinder.
The system provides enhanced usability through continued innovation setting new
still fulfilling the demands of the generation.
4K frame grab
EXCELLENT MOVIE SHOOTING FUNCTIONS
The system offers users balanced functionality to support both still photos and movies.
includes advanced features video features for both video enthusiasts and professionals
in movie production.
DIGITAL PHOTO PROFESSIONAL EXPRESS (DPP)
DPP Express is a RAW image processing, viewing and editing application for iPad* devices. Now, you
can intuitively browse, edit and develop RAW** images on-the-go.
*Compatible with iPad models utilizing iOS 11 or later and equipped with at least 2GB of onboard RAM
– specifically, iPad Pro (all models), iPad (5th generation), iPad (6th generation), iPad mini 4 and
iPad Air 2.
**An unprocessed, or “raw,” file format containing image data exactly as it is captured on the
camera’s imaging sensor before such adjustments as colour correction are applied during conversion
to JPEG format.

ABILITY TO SHOOT IN LOW-LIGHT CONDITIONS. The bright EVF allows users to see the subject even in dimly lit conditions. AF functions effectively even in lighting conditions as low as EV-6 (when the aperture is set to f/1.2). The Dual Sensing IS is effective in correcting for camera-shake as cameras using 5-stop faster shutter speeds, allowing users to perform hand-held shooting in a wider range of conditions.
INCREASED IMAGE COMPOSITION FLEXIBILITY. Wide AF area allows users to keep subjects located near the edges of the picture in focus, even without the use of the focus lock. The small distance between AF points allows for the focal point to be set at almost any point within the frame, thus greatly increases the freedom of composition.
ADAPTABILITY TO DIVERSE SHOOTING STYLES. The system supports a wide range of photo shooting styles. For example, the EVF provides histogram and shooting data that can be monitored in real-time, making it easier to shoot in backlit conditions or to photograph bright subjects (such as a white wedding dress). The variable-angle LCD increases the flexibility of shooting styles.
RESPONSIVE SPEED & SATISFYING SHOOTING PERFORMANCE. The wide AF area and new AF tracking algorithm achieve wider and more-precise tracking of the subject's face than that of AF systems based on an optical viewfinder. A high sensitivity of ISO 40000 and capability of high-speed continuous shooting (approx. 5 fps) allows users to take shots in dimly lit indoor sporting venues.
SILENT SHOOTING CAPABILITY. A silent shutter mode is available for single-shot photos. Still images (8-megapixel quality still photos) can be extracted from 4K 30p movie footage. All this coupled with a lightweight, dust-resistant and moisture-resistant compact body makes the camera ideal for outdoor shooting in various weather conditions ensuring users will not miss out on the shot.
In addition to the conventional battery grip features, this accessory adds a battery charging
This accessory also gives you the option to hold the camera in a vertical orientation (portrait)
still photos, and comfortably controls the camera when shooting longer movie clips.
This illustrates EOS R's compatibility with all existing Canon products.
