Canon Europe have announced the launch of the EOS R100, perfect for capturing special occasions and lasting memories. With a 24.1 megapixel, APS-C sensor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF packed into its compact and lightweight body, the EOS R100 offers stunning yet effortless image quality, perfect for shooting on the go. Accompanying the launch of the camera is the RF 28mm F2.8 STM, Canon’s smallest and lightest lens in the RF range, as well as the OC-E4A, a new off-camera shoe cord for Canon’s multi-function shoe.
The EOS R100 features a 24.1 megapixel APS-C sensor which is several times larger than that found in a top of the range smartphone, providing a noticeable step up in image and video quality. This not only delivers impeccable colour and incredible detail, but also gives users the ability to shoot in low light conditions and achieve beautiful, authentic bokeh where the background is smoothly softened, allowing the subject to stand out.
With the intelligent autofocus of the EOS R range, the EOS R100 has Dual Pixel CMOS AF with fast and accurate subject detection, tracking people’s eyes when using the viewfinder or the LCD screen, keeping up with the action and focusing on what really matters.
The EOS R100 has improved video performance compared to a smartphone or DSLR, offering 4K 25p video1, bringing the benefits of the EOS R System to this easy-to-use, entry-level camera. It is also capable of Full HD video recording at 60 fps and 120 fps at 720p resolution, ideal for smooth slow-motion videos, which is particularly useful when getting creative with holiday content. The reliable Dual Pixel CMOS AF also enables face detection and eye tracking when recording in Full HD.
he RF 28mm F2.8 STM is an extremely compact and lightweight full frame RF prime pancake lens. It has been carefully designed to be the perfect combination for cameras such as the recently launched EOS R8. It can easily fit into any kit bag or be used instead of a body cap, ideal for travel and street photographers on the move.
Its versatile 28mm focal length and fast F2.8 maximum aperture make it suitable for a variety of shooting scenarios. The fast aperture enables low light shooting and achieves a shallow depth of field for blurred backgrounds to make the subject stand out. The RF 28mm F2.8 STM includes a combined control and focus ring, enabling users to easily adjust settings and quickly switch to manual focus if required. What’s more, the STM motor also allows quiet autofocus and smooth transitions between subjects.
Canon’s combination of an EOS R body and RF lens enables a variety of correction options to be implemented to assist entry-level photographers and videographers, offering better image quality, and allowing for a smaller lens design. The effective placement of three high-precision plastic moulded aspheric elements achieves excellent rendering capability and compactness while also keeping the number of elements to a minimum.
As a super compact, lightweight and affordable option, the RF 28mm F2.8 STM broadens the choice of Canon’s advanced prime lenses for EOS R System users, which also includes:
• RF 16mm F2.8 STM
