EOS R100 – Canon Launches its Lightest Mirrorless Camera

Canon has introduced the EOS R100, the latest addition to its EOS R system camera lineup. This camera stands out as Canon’s smallest, lightest, and most affordable model in the EOS R series to date.

The EOS R100 is engineered to deliver superior image quality in a compact form factor. Equipped with an APS-C size CMOS image sensor, it delivers clear, sharp images with finely resolved details.

Weighing approximately 356g, roughly the same as a 330ml canned drink, it is highly portable and convenient for capturing spontaneous moments and treasured memories.

With Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, users can easily share their photos on social media via the Canon Camera Connect app on their smartphones.

Designed to enhance the shooting experience, the EOS R100 features a viewfinder and a comfortable grip.

The built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) provides excellent visibility even in bright sunlight, while the rubberized textured grip ensures a secure and stable hold on the camera for steady shots.

Capturing great shots is made easy with the EOS R100’s fast and accurate autofocus system. It incorporates Eye and Face Detection, enabling the camera to track subjects across a wide area of the frame.

This feature ensures sharp images of people and objects, even when they are moving or fidgeting. Additionally, when paired with a compatible lens, the camera offers image stabilization for sharper handheld photos, even in low-light conditions. A built-in flash is available for well-lit shots in darker scenes or backlight situations, with options for flash power control to unleash creative possibilities.

The EOS R100 is not limited to still photography. Users can explore video creation with innovative features such as Hybrid Auto mode, which transforms still photos and video snippets into a digest movie of the day’s activities.

The camera also includes a 4K Timelapse Video mode, automatically capturing shots at predetermined intervals and stitching them together into high-resolution videos. For more advanced video content creation, the EOS R100 supports 4K video shooting and slow-motion movies with 120p high frame rate recording.

With features like Eye Detection AF and Movie Digital IS function, users can keep their subjects in focus and achieve stable footage, even while walking.

To cater to users of various skill levels, the EOS R100 offers multiple ways to create images. In addition to traditional DSLR and mirrorless camera controls, the Creative Assist mode allows users to adjust settings using layman terms like “Background blur,” “Brightness,” and “Saturation.”

Scene modes and Scene Intelligent Auto are also available, allowing the camera to automatically select the optimal settings for different scenes. Furthermore, creative filters within the camera presets enable users to customize the look and style of their images, expressing their individuality.

The EOS R100 is directly compatible with over 30 RF and RF-S lenses from Canon’s ever-growing RF lens lineup. These lenses offer diverse perspectives, allowing photographers to go wider, get closer, reach further, or create captivating bokeh effects.

Additionally, the camera can be paired with over 80 EF lenses via the EF-EOS R Mount Adapter, further expanding its versatility.

The EOS R100 will be available at Canon authorized dealers starting from June 20, 2023, with a recommended retail price of EOS R100 (Body only) at SGD $729, or EOS R100 kit (With the RF-S18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM) at SGD $889.
