Comparing the Canon EOS R7 to the EOS R10

The simultaneously announced Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10 are the first APS-C imaging sensor format cameras in the Canon R-series. With identical era technology, they provide an interesting comparison.

Here are a pair of lists highlighting many of the differences between these models.

These are some of the R7 advantages:

  • Significantly higher resolution (32.5 MP vs. 24.2 MP, here is that comparison), with greater reach
  • 5-axis IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilization) provides approximately 7-stops of shake correction (increases with lens IS coordination) and auto image level
  • AF working range down to EV -5 vs. EV -4
  • Mechanical shutter to 1/8000 and electronic shutter to 1/16000 vs. 1/4000 for both
  • EVF magnification of 1.15x vs. 0.95x
  • Rear LCD with 1.62m dots vs. 1.04m
  • X-Sync of 1/250 vs. 1/200 with mechanical shutter and 1/320 vs. 1/250 with electronic 1st curtain
  • Continuous shooting up to 30 fps with electronic shutter for 224 JPG or 51 RAW images vs. 23 fps. for 70 JPG or 21 RAW images (fast memory cards can far exceed these specifications)
  • Rear control dial vs. top control dial
  • 4K 60 fps with 7k oversampling vs. 4K 30 fps with 6k oversampling
  • Movie position on the power switch
  • Canon Log 3
  • Movie record duration up to 6 hours vs. up to 2 hours
  • Water & dust resistance specified vs. not specified
  • Dual side-accessible memory card slots vs. single slot in battery door under camera
  • Larger LP-E6NH battery provides longer life (EVF: 500 vs. 290 shots, LCD: 770 vs. 450 shots) than LP-E17
  • Shutter Durability Rating specified at 200,000 vs. not specified
  • Dual Pixel RAW format

Here are the R10 advantages.

  • Considerably less expensive
  • Built-in flash
  • Smaller: 4.8 x 3.5 x 3.3" vs. 5.2 x 3.6 x 3.6" (122.5 x 87.8 x 83.4mm vs. 132.0 x 90.4 x 91.7mm)
  • Lighter: 15.1 vs. 21.6 oz (429 vs. 612g)

As seen in the product images, the controls for these cameras differ somewhat.

It is easy to justify the higher cost of the R7, but if those benefits are not important, the R10's advantages just might be.
