About the Canon R8

The Canon EOS R8 is a High-quality videos can be recorded in 4K 60p (6K oversampled) or Full HD 180p. The 10-bit Canon Log 3 format will greatly increase your post-processing flexibility. EOS iTR AF X and Dual Pixel CMOS AF II ensure pin-sharp focus for both photo and video.
Capture high-quality 24.2-megapixel images at up to 40 frames per second with highly accurate burst shooting.

  • Approx. 24.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor & approx. 461g
  • 4K 60p (6K oversampled) with Canon Log 3 & FHD 180p
  • Up to 40 fps & EOS iTR AF X

The Canon EOS R8 is a full-frame mirrorless camera that weighs only about 461g but packs a powerful punch with high performance. This is the ideal content creation tool for budding photographers and videographers who need something powerful yet portable and future-proof.

Through the 6K oversampling process that employs the debayer algorithm used in the CINEMA EOS System, the EOS R8 produces stunning 4K quality videos even at 60p. Enjoy improved video clarity and noise reduction over native 4K recordings.

Canon EOS R8 offers flexible 8-bit and YCbCr 4:2:2 10-bit options for casual content creators and professionals who need post-production colour adjustments.

Use HDR PQ to record HDR-compatible movies with high brightness, wide gradation, and wide colour gamut without colour grading or simply use a Picture Style preset to simplify your workflow further.

Canon Log 3 can permit richer colour expression, even in high-contrast scenes, if you prefer greater colour control in post-production.

The camera’s angle of view changes slightly during focus racking while recording video, causing an annoying ‘pulsing’ effect in the footage. The EOS R8 corrects this automatically when a compatible lens is used, ensuring a smooth and natural result consistently.

Autofocus speeds as fast as 0.03 seconds make it possible to focus in the blink of an eye. In addition to its high-precision AF/AE system, the EOS R8 can shoot at up to 40fps in electronic shutter mode and 6fps in electronic first curtain shutter mode with AF/AE tracking enabled.

The 40fps silent burst is useful in situations that require silence, such as live performances or wildlife photography.
Overall, the Canon EOS R8 is a versatile and powerful camera that offers a great combination of high-quality image and video capabilities, fast autofocus, and a compact and lightweight design. These features make it an ideal choice for use in the Liquid Eye C2080 water housing.
