Why the Canon EOS R7 APS-C Sensors Are So Exciting

Photography buffs are getting excited about the upcoming release of the new Canon EOS R7 mirrorless camera with APS-C sensors. The camera is rumored to be Canon’s first mirrorless RF-mount professional camera with an affordable price tag.

Canon Camera Style and Design

Experts say that the camera will closely resemble the EOS R6 and EOS R5 models design-wise and is essentially the long-awaited successor to the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.
The unique aspect of this camera is not that it is mirrorless; Canon makes other mirrorless products. But when you add the RF mount and APS-C sensors, things really get exciting. Hopefully, Canon will beef up the enclosure to make its exterior more rugged and capable of handling demanding environments, which would be a huge bonus.

Specifications of the Canon EOS R7

Although the official specs aren’t due out from Canon until May 24th, Canon Rumors has the early scoop on this exciting new Canon camera.
The confirmed leaked specs for the Canon EOS R7 include:
  • 32.5mp APS-C Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • 15-30 fps (mechanical/electronic
  • 2x UHS-II supported
  • 4K @ 60/50fps (NTSC/PAL)
  • 1080p @ 120/100fps (NTSC/PAL)
  • C-Log 3/HDR PQ
  • In-Body IS
In layman’s terms, this means that the camera will have a 32-megapixel BSI sensor and a DIGIC X processor. It can take pictures at a rate of 15-30 frames per second and can shoot 4K video at 60 fps and 1080 at 120 fps. Additionally, the Canon EOS R7 will include dual card slots, with one of them being a CFexpress slot. Canon’s goal was to produce an RF mount mirrorless camera that could compete with other pro models at an affordable price.
The really exciting part is that the addition of an APS-C sensor on the Canon EOS R7 will elevate this affordable mirrorless camera with lightning-fast speed making it a seriously competitive live-action camera. Some are even saying that it could be the perfect choice for photographing wildlife.
Mirrorless cameras are typically designed for and sold to consumers rather than professional photographers. However, Canon is hoping to change all that with the EOS R7. Enhancing the device with an RF mount and twin APS-C sensors takes it out of the consumer market and into the professional arena.

Canon Camera Warranty Considerations

Camera equipment is not cheap. Therefore, whenever you decide to buy high-tech equipment with a lot of complex components, you must consider the warranty and how you will be covered if something goes wrong.
Canon is known for making some of the top cameras on the market, but what about the Canon camera warranty? Canon’s standard warranty is a limited warranty stating that any of the EOS line of products will be “free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and service for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase.” If something is wrong with your camera, you will need to return it to the Canon manufacturing plant for repairs, which is not that convenient.
What if you accidentally drop your expensive camera and crack the lens or expose it to water? Some of the intricate parts could be damaged, which would not be covered under Canon’s warranty. Often manufacturers’ warranties lack the proper coverage. Where the Canon warranty lacks, Upsie picks up the slack.
