Canon EOS R8 Mirrorless Camera 24.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor 4k60p 10-Bit


A lightweight, travel-friendly, full-frame camera body, the Canon EOS R8 Mirrorless Camera offers powerful photo and video capabilities for both photographers and multimedia content creators.

Utilizing a newly developed sensor also found in the EOS R6 Mark II, the R8 features a 24.2MP CMOS sensor paired with a DIGIC X processor.

Together, this combination provides outstanding stills performance, impressive 4K 60p 10-bit video, and fast autofocus.

Give your creativity a full-frame upgrade. Better bokeh, wider angles of view and image quality that will blow you away – even in low light.

The full-frame advantage also extends to video for spectacular cinematic results.

Stills or video: keep subjects in sharp focus as they move around the frame

The full-frame advantage

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

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.

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

Full-frame cameras, like the EOS R8, are great for capturing atmospheric images in low-light conditions.

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.

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.

By oversampling 6K sensor data, the EOS R8 produces high-quality 4K video footage at frame rates up to 60p.1 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

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.

Add feeling and emotion to movement, shooting at up to 180p in Full HD.2 When viewed at normal playback speeds, this shows subjects in sumptuous slow motion – revealing hidden details of their movement.
