Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10, the EOS 7D Mark II and EOS 90D replacement?
Canon EOS R7 and EOS R10
As we predict – thanks to many trade rumors – Canon is about to announce the Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10, two mirrorless models with APS-C sensors.
But there’s more. Various sources say that these new models could be direct replacement for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II and Canon EOS 90D. That’s all according to news site CanonWatch, who think we could have an official announcement as soon as 24 May! The EOS R7 was thought to be a replacement for the Canon EOS 7D line, as Canon has been focusing on its EOS R line-up for some time, and a mirrorless version of the EOS 7D II could definitely attract dental photographers who want the reach of an APS-C sensor (and a more affordable body).
Will the new EOS R7 and EOS R10 be the right choice for dental photographers?
EOS R7: Specs
What do the rumors say? EOS R7’s technical specs include a 32.5-MP APS-C sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus, a 15-30fps continuous shooting speed, 4K video recording at 60/50fps (NTSC/PAL), 1080p recording at 120/100fps, and In-Body Image Stabilization.
We can be sure: such specs seem really enough for a dental photographer.
EOS R10: Is it happening at all?
We’re still not sure whether the EOS R10 is a real thing. None of these reports have been officially commented on by Canon itself.
But – if it is true – Canon Rumors has listed a few possible specs for the EOS R10, which if true, could make the EOS M camera line seem redundant. These include a 24.2MP sensor, 15-23fps (using the mechanical/electronic shutter), and 1x UHS-II SD card slot. These are more modest than the EOS R7, and suggest that the EOS R10 could be pitched as the entry-level RF Mount camera with an APS-C image sensor.
If CanonWatch has a good source, we only need to wait a few days and everything should be clear! Stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted.
