See The Difference
The Canon EOS R8 is designed for hybrid shooters looking to expand their creative territory and bask in the benefits of full-frame. Thanks to its 24.2 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, the EOS R8 artfully combines incredible amounts of detail, with lightning-fast speeds and an industry-leading low-light performance up to ISO 102,400. This powerful combination not only captures the brightest and darkest parts of a landscape but also creates portraits with beautiful bokeh and a shallow depth of field.
Following on from the EOS R7, the EOS R8 benefits from the same industry-leading Dual Pixel CMOS AF II focusing system that is programmed using deep-learning AI. Thanks to this feature, the EOS R8 can recognise subjects near the edges of the frame and continues tracking them even if they briefly disappear from view. And, when it comes to shooting portraits or interviews, the AF can also lock on to a subject’s eyes, face, head or body.
Shoot for The Big Screen
Whether you’re working on a documentary piece or an up-and-coming independent film, the EOS R8 helps creators to stand out from the crowd. As a true hybrid shooter, the EOS R8 can capture sensational oversampled 4K footage up to 60p. Combined with pro-filmmaking tools like Clog3, EOS R8 footage easily slots into professional editing workflows for vloggers, colourists and filmmakers alike.

With built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2, users can even control the camera remotely from their smartphone or switch to a desktop setup and use the EOS R8 as a high-quality webcam - so you can get connected and stay connected.
