A recent report suggested that the rumored Canon EOS R7 could come with a maximum continuous shooting speed of 20fps, putting it on par with the current Canon EOS R5 and R6. At the time, however, the rumor was “unconfirmed”.
A new leak from the same trusted source via Canon Rumors now says that the upcoming APS-C format shooter will feature a burst rate of up to 30fps… and this number is supposedly “confirmed”. The leaker doesn’t reveal the source, of course, but if this turns out to be true, it will put the EOS R7 in line with pro-level cameras like the Canon EOS R3 and Sony A1!
Other “confirmed” specs include In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS) and we’ve already seen how well Canon has embraced that technology in its latest R-series bodies. Handheld shooting at 1-2 seconds, anyone?
If this happens, the EOS R7 will put some serious pro-level specs in the hands of hobbyists and enthusiasts at (probably) a great price.
Opinion: I’m really excited to get my hands on the EOS R7
Although the latest Canon Rumors leak claims that the EOS R7 will not have a CFexpress card slot, but instead will come with two SD slots with UHS-II speed support, which seems counterintuitive for a camera with high burst speeds, the El The rest of the leaked specs have me itching to get my hands on the next camera.
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II was my main camera for years until I went full frame with the EOS 6D Mark II. Since then, I’ve really been drooling over the EOS R5, but have been reluctant to buy it due to its high price.
However, if the EOS R7’s leaked specs of a 32.5MP APS-C sensor, up to 30fps burst, 4K/60p video, and IBIS turn out to be true, you might seriously consider getting the new RF-mount camera instead. a full frame. because I think the price would fit my budget. It’s true that it won’t be as affordable as, say, the EOS RP, but it will most likely be cheaper than the R5, maybe even the R6.
Even the resolution of the sensor is perfect for me. I was disappointed with the R6’s 20MP resolution and 45MP was overkill for my personal needs. A 32.5MP sensor is perfect for me – I tried the 32.5MP APS-C sensor in the EOS 90D and loved what it could do.
The claimed 30fps burst for the R7 has me excited to try my hand at more sports photography (I’ve recently developed a taste for it) and I’m eager to see where it takes me with my wildlife photography journey. All you need now is the same autofocus performance of higher-end R-series cameras, and I’ll admit I’m a bit worried about how well UHS-II speed cards will handle massive bursts.
As exciting as it is, these specs aren’t official yet, so don’t take them as gospel. Canon Rumors suggests that we can expect an announcement in June or July of this year, so we shouldn’t have to wait too long to find out if Canon has its next best seller.
