Canon EOS R7 targets action-oriented content creators

Canon today announced two new APS-C cameras: EOS R10 and EOS R7. While the EOS R10 targets hobbyists and enthusiasts, the Canon EOS R7 promises additional features for content creators. Specifically, Canon claims the EOS R7 is perfect for sports, wildlife and motorsports video and photography thanks to its speedy electronic shutter, 4K60p video recording and in-body image stabilization.

Let’s dig into what the EOS R7 has to offer.

Inside the Canon EOS R7

The Canon EOS R7 features a 32 million pixel APS-C size image sensor capable of capturing 4K video at up to 60 frames per second. It’s the first Canon APS-C camera to offer 7.0 stops of Coordinated Image Stabilization. Plus, unlike its companion the EOS R10, the EOS R7 offers in-body image stabilization. That makes the camera more appealing to the content creator on the move. Along with IBIS, the EOS R7 also offers subject detection autofocus inherited from the EOS R3.
