Canon EOS R8 Full-Frame Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)

TIPA AWARD 2023 - BEST FULL FRAME ADVANCED CAMERA

Discover the power of the Canon EOS R8 in wedding, travel, podcasting and vlogging applications. This entry-level Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera typically replaces the EOS RP Camera. Featuring enhanced video capabilities, improved AF tracking and is programmed with a Dual-CMOS AFII focus system.  

Capture striking 24MP stills even in low-light conditions. The EOS R8's video functionality has been revised to offer 4K60 10-Bit video and the option to record in Clog for up to two hours. To increase your productivity, there is a dedicated video or still switch that you can use to instantly change from still to video for those hybrid creators out there.

  • 24.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC X Image Processor
  • 4K60p 10-Bit Video
  • AF Tracking now includes horses, aircraft and trains

The full-frame advantage

Enjoy wider dynamic range, reduced digital noise and crystal-clear detail – that’s the EOS R8’s full-frame advantage

Shoot shallower

Perfect for powerful portraits. With a larger sensor comes shallower depth of field and more dynamic range. Make your subject stand out against a smooth, out-of-focus background with beautiful bokeh. Capture more details in highlights and shadows.

Shoot wider

Transform the way you see the landscape, and get up close for immersive documentary images.

Full frame depth of field

Compare the EOS R8’s background blur with that of an APS-C camera. Pin-sharp subjects are emphasised better against smooth, out-of-focus backgrounds.

Full frame angle of view

See how a 15mm lens looks on the full-frame EOS R8, compared with an EOS camera with a smaller APS-C sensor. Any given focal length gives a 1.6x wider angle of view.

Find your inner filmmaker

By oversampling 6K sensor data, the EOS R8 produces high-quality 4K video footage at frame rates up to 60p. If you’re new to video, you’ll love how simple the camera makes it to get creative with different frame rates and resolutions. You’ll appreciate its advanced features as you become an accomplished filmmaker

Professional colour grading

Use the EOS R8’s low-contrast Canon Log 3 colour profile for more options while colour grading. This footage preserves detail in bright highlights and dark shadows, thanks to its wide, dynamic range.

The nuances of slow motion

Add feeling and emotion to movement, shooting at up to 180p in Full HD. When viewed at normal playback speeds, this shows subjects in sumptuous slow motion – revealing hidden details of their movement.

Professional video functions

False Colour.

Gauge the perfect exposure. Six coloured overlays show the distribution of luminance in a scene.

Focus Peaking

Master critical sharpness when focusing manually. In-focus areas are outlined with a distinctive (and customisable) colour.

Zebra

Striped overlays make it quick and simple to judge the correct exposure

Digital Zoom

Change your view, even when shooting video with prime lenses, with up to 10x digital zoom.

Big on features small on size

The EOS R8 is our lightest full-frame, mirrorless camera yet, weighing in at just 461g.

Enjoy the full-frame advantage everywhere you shoot, from decisive moments on the streets to remote landscapes and adventures.

Game-changing autofocus

Inside the EOS R8 is our renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF II focusing system. It recognises and tracks different subjects and is accurate even in very low light – down to -6.5EV.

Intelligent AF that knows what you’re shooting

The EOS R8 has been programmed using a state-of-the-art machine-learning algorithm that lets it track moving subjects as they move about the frame.

Amazing AF for both stills and video

No matter how you’re shooting, the EOS R8 tracks and follows moving subjects right to the edges of the frame. Even if the main subject is obscured for a moment, the camera anticipates its movement and reacquires focus as soon as it reappears.
