Both models use a Canon RF lens mount, the EOS R7 is aimed at the enthusiastic photographer market, similar to the Canon EOS 90D SLR, while the EOS R10 is a more affordable model with simpler features. Along with the cameras, the company also introduced two kit lenses – Canon RF-S 18-45 mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM and RF-S 18-150 mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM.
The EOS R7 is based on an updated 32.5 MP APS-C CMOS sensor (22.2×14.8 mm) with Dual Pixel autofocus and image offset stabilization (can compensate up to seven feet). Serial photography can be performed at speeds of up to 15 frames/sec when using a mechanical shutter or up to 30 frames/sec with an electronic. Video recording – up to 4K@60 fps, there is support for 10-bit video.
The autofocus system has been improved compared to previous models. It supports modes of object recognition, such as animals, people, or vehicles. The camera is equipped with an electronic viewfinder – OLED screen with a resolution of 1024×768 pixels. You can also take pictures and view footage on the 3-inch touchscreen display (900×600 pixels).
The EOS R7 uses the same battery as the EOS R5 and R6 – LP-E6NH. In power-saving mode, it will allow you to get up to 770 frames using the rear display, or up to 500 frames – using the viewfinder. The suggested retail price is $1,499 for the camera itself, without the lens, or $1,899 for the 18-15 mm kit lens.
EOS R10 is a more affordable mid-range model. It has a slightly smaller sensor 24 MP APS-C CMOS, also has Dual Pixel autofocus, but there is no image stabilization by shifting it. Serial photography with a mechanical shutter is the same – up to 15 frames/sec, with electronic slower up to 23 frames/sec. Also in the EOS R10 there is noticeably smaller buffer: if the EOS R7 can take up to 100 shots in RAW at 15 frames per second, the R10 – only 30. Features of video recording are full frame up to 4K@30 fps, 1.56x crop – up to 4K@60 fps.
The autofocus system in both models is identical, the electronic viewfinder in the EOS R10 is also the same in characteristics, but with a smaller magnification, so it will appear to the user smaller than in the EOS R7. The touch screen has the same diagonal – 3″, but the resolution is much lower – 720×480 pixels.
The battery in the EOS R10 is also simpler – LP-E17 (used, in particular, in budget amateur “mirror cameras”). It should be enough for 430 frames with the rear display in power saving mode. Another simplification compared to the older model: the EOS R10 lacks protection against dust and moisture, which the EOS R7 has. The suggested retail price for the camera is $979, $1099 for the 18-45mm lens, or $1,379 for the 18-150 mm lens. Both cameras are expected to go on sale by the end of 2022.
