Review: Canon EOS R7 APS-C Mirrorless Camera

Review done by Bobby Tonelli.

With so many options on the market, it’s important to weigh your considerations and needs before committing to a purchase. For imaging hobbyists and non-professionals, affordability is always an added plus, leaving the stage to the Canon EOS R7 APS-C Mirrorless Camera — a more wallet-friendly alternative that doesn’t compromise too much on performance.

The S$2,049 camera was launched alongside the R10 back in May this year, with a smaller form factor that lends increased portability for sports and wildlife photography. It sports a 32.5MP APS-C sensor and the Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, the same autofocus system seen on pricier models like the EOS R6, and is capable of shooting 4K video in 60 FPS. There’s also a new joystick sitting in the middle of the dial, and a video mode on the wheel that makes it easier to switch between photography and videography.

These specs and features, however, don’t count for much on paper, which is why we decided to take it out for a spin at the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay. After half a day of testing, the images turned out to be sharp with great rendering, image stabilisation, and zero chromatic aberration or distortion, making the EOS R7 a generally formidable camera that can also double up as a companion for vlogging.

Pitting it against the Fujifilm XH2-S does highlight some drawbacks, with the most prominent one being the lack of lens range. The specifics, as well as the images right out of the camera, may both be found in the review video below:

Knock yourselves out, fellow snappers.
