First Impressions: The Canon EOS R8 is the Best friend of anyone who wants to be a content creator!
The Canon EOS R8 can be exactly what you need if you’re a novice content maker.
Bobby Tonelli’s video of his impressions.
Canon is expanding its lower-end offering with cameras that are affordable for aspiring photographers and videographers. Our initial reaction after experimenting with the latest camera from the brand during a hands-on session is that the R8 is similar to the R6 Mark II in terms of features and specifications that one would look for in a camera. Simply put, the R8 is the younger sister of the R6 Mark II.
The R8 has a freshly created 24.2-megapixel CMOS picture sensor as well as a Digic X image processor. Due to the camera’s high native ISO speed ranges of up to ISO 102,400 (still shooting) and ISO 25,600, it also functions reasonably well in low light (video shooting).
With a weight of only 461 grams, the R8 is likewise marketed as the lightest full-frame camera available.
If you’re a beginning filmmaker or content creator, the camera is definitely worth checking out. For our hands-on session, we recorded a chef making lunch. The R8 is the perfect camera if you’re a content creator who has been using a phone and wants to step up the quality of your work.
The R8 also makes a wonderful secondary or B camera for experienced videographers looking for something small, inexpensive, simple to operate, and producing high-quality footage.
The Canon EOS R8 will go on sale by the end of April.
