Canon has announced an entry-level apsc sensor-based camera system with the EOS R100. The R100 costs €719 including the 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 kit lens and will be available from June. The R100 is the most affordable camera in the brand’s RF platform.
R100 Bursts of images can be taken at 6.5fps in single-shot AF mode. In Servo AF mode, it stays at 3.5fps. The fact that the camera’s burst speed is still quite low because the R100 has an extension 1 back curtain mechanical shutter. The device has 143 autofocus areas that recognize faces and eyes. Furthermore, the R100 has an ISO value that ranges from 100 to 12800 and can be expanded to 25600. The shutter speed can be set from 30 to 1/4000 second. The OLED electronic viewfinder on the R100 is the same as on the EOS M50 Mark II. For video, the camera can shoot 4k cropped images at a frame rate of 24fps. The R100 can capture Full HD images at 60 frames per second.
It can be seen that Canon has cut costs to keep the price down in specifications. Canon has equipped the EOS R100 with a Digic 8 processor dating back to 2020. This chip was also in the EOS M50 Mark II two years ago. Moreover, the device has no built-in image stabilization and the R100 only supports UHS-I cards. Also, the screen on the back of the R100 is not foldable and is not a touch screen.
A microphone connection can be found off the camera, as well as a connection for the remote control. The R100 does not have a headphone jack. The R100 has USB-C and micro HDMI connectivity.
In addition to the R100, Canon is also introducing a new RF lens: the Canon RF 28mm f/2.8 STM, which is a slim lens with a minimum focusing distance of 0.23m and a maximum magnification of 0.17x.
With the R100, Canon is targeting people who are just getting started in photography and would previously have opted for an entry-level SLR camera or the EOS M. The Canon EOS R100 will be available from June including lens kit for €719. The price for the separate body is not yet known. The camera weighs 356 grams and measures 116 x 86 x 69mm.
