Canon EOS R10: an attractive APS-C hybrid that looks like a small SLR camera

4

Canon opens its range of hybrid cameras with APS-C sensor and RF mounting, not with one body but two. In addition to an EOS R7 cut for action, the Japanese offer the EOS R10, more modest but quite interesting.

Therefore, to celebrate the arrival of the smallest APS-C sensors (1.6x full frame conversion ratio) on its RF mount for mirrorless cameras, Canon is launching two cases. The first, EOS R7, is aimed at an audience of enlightened amateurs looking for a fast camera for wildlife or sports photos. The other, also called the EOS R10, is more modest and accessible. Moreover, while hybrids usually contrast more radically with their SLR counterparts, which are often much lighter and smaller, this retains much of the aesthetics of the Tokyo company’s entry / mid-range SLRs.

A mini-reflex?

The EOS R10 thus looks like the EOS 250D from the front, with which it shares the same weight (approximately 430-450 g) and a comparable size. However, the EOS R10 is much more shallow and marks with its large RF bracket that, like the Z bracket on the Nikon Z50 or Z fc, impresses on such small devices. Under the frame, in the hole of the handle, there is also integrated a switch for focusing. It is covered by a button that allows you to switch between the functions of the configurable ring of RF lenses.

The EOS R10 also benefits from a joystick and a touch screen on a ball joint, which is always convenient. The connection is fairly standard with a micro-HDMI connector, a jack port for the microphone (but no headphone output) or even a USB-C port for charging. The definition of the viewfinder is a bit behind with 2.36 Mpts, which is a nice bit in 2022. The photographer can also only count on a single UHS-II SD card port. The device finally has a small retractable flash.

Almost a new sensor

Under the hood houses a 24.2 MP sensor, which, although not brand new, has been “new” developed. In all likelihood, it would be close to the EOS 850D reflex. Its sensitivity ranges from 100 to 32,000 ISO, and it is possible to extend it up to 51,200 ISO. However, it does not have mechanical stabilization, unlike the EOS R7. It will therefore be necessary to rely on a large aperture with fixed focal lengths or on stabilized zoom to limit camera shake.

Sacred achievement in outbursts

The EOS R10 stays pretty fast, more than most of its peers, with a burst reaching 15 fps in mechanical shutter and 23 fps in electronic shutter (buffer at around 120 frames), all with human tracking, animals (bodies, faces and eyes) and vehicles. It does not look like much, but can be interesting for anyone who wants to try their hand at sports or wildlife photography. As on the EOS R7, it is even possible to exceed this limit of 23 fps with the “raw burst” mode, which allows image capture (with tracking) for half a second before the trigger. We can then climb to 30 fps, only in raw and with a planing of 25% in the image.

4K 60p with cropped

For video, this Canon can record footage up to 4K UHD and 30 fps (oversampled from 6K) and without cropping. You can also get 4K at 60 fps, but with a 1.56x crop in the image. For slow motion at 120 fps it will be necessary to switch to 1080p. The recording time limit of 30 minutes is no longer valid, R10 can last up to 2 consecutive hours.

The Canon EOS R10 also offers a panoramic mode, which consists of a continuous recording of 5 fps with editing done directly by the body, a bit like smartphones offer.

Price and availability

The small Canon EOS R10 will be launched from the end of July 2022. Nude it will cost you 979 €. It will also be available in two sets: the first with RF-S 18-45mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM zoom for € 1099; the other with RF-S 18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM for € 1379. In any case, for a limited time and stock, and like the EOS R7, all R10s will come with an adapter ring for EF SLR lenses.

For € 1,000 naked, the EOS R10 comes in direct confrontation with sometimes less ambitious products, such as the Nikon Z50 and Z fc, or the Sony Alpha 6400 (A6400), or even offers similar features such as the Fujifilm X-S10, – which, however, stands out by its stabilized sensor.
