Canon EOS R System cameras deliver next-generation technologies, but they also build on the heritage of Canon camera design, with intuitive menus and classic EOS camera ergonomics that have been refined over the past 35 years. They are modern cameras to suit modern ways of working and incorporate many innovations, such as the EOS R3's breakthrough Eye Control AF, which takes camera control to a new level, but are also reassuringly comfortable in the hand. They work the way you expect while making new features easily accessible and also giving you unprecedented scope to customise their controls and menus to suit your preferences, so you can get going in no time and shoot without breaking your creative flow.
"When designing new EOS cameras we had to consider that users have very much got used to how the system operates," explains John Maurice, European Product Marketing Manager at Canon Europe. "So the way you introduce change is through evolution. Some of the changes we've made have been subtle, but we're building on things that work."
Here we look at some of the ways that EOS R System cameras combine familiarity and innovation, with the overriding emphasis on ergonomics and usability, and how you can customise controls and menus to suit the way you want to work.
