Gadgets Weekly: Canon EOS R7 camera series and more

Technology companies such as Ambrane, Canon, Syska, Sony, and pTron among others launched a new line of cameras, earphones, smartwatches, LED lights and more this week (May 22-27).

DH’s Gadgets Weekly edition lists the latest prominent personal technology products to keep you abreast of everything that’s happening in the world of consumer electronics.

Canon’s brand new mirrorless EOS R7 and R10 series cameras
The new EOS R7 boasts a high-performance 32.5MP sensor with In-Body Image Stabilization (In-Body IS), weather-sealing, and dual SD card slots. 
The 24.2MP EOS R10, which features a built-in flash and a smaller form factor, is designed for more standard everyday needs. 

Both come with a DIGIC X image processing engine, and are also the first Canon cameras to support the new autofocusing (AF) technology that debuted on the EOS R3. It is developed based on deep learning-based subject detection capabilities of the EOS iTR AF X system – to track subjects more tenaciously across the entire image area, regardless of the AF area mode. This promises to offer highly responsive and reliable autofocusing, even in dynamic scenes. 

Also, they are capable of capturing high-speed (up to 15 fps) continuous shooting in mechanical and electronic first-curtain shutter modes (with AF/AE tracking)—the fastest speed not just among all APS-C EOS cameras, but also in the EOS R series. This is nearly equivalent to the EOS-1D X Mark III, Canon’s flagship DSLR, which shoots up to approx. 16 fps with the optical viewfinder.

The EOS R7 is said to be the first APS-C EOS camera to feature the sensor-shift type 5-axis In-Body IS (Image Stabilizer) mechanism, which can achieve up to 8 stops’ equivalent image stabilisation during the video and still image shooting. Both the EOS R7 and EOS R10 feature Movie Digital IS, which conducts 5-axis image stabilisation for steadier videos even with a lens that has no Optical Image Stabilizer (Optical IS).

The EOS R7 can use 7K oversampling to record high-quality 4K UHD video at up to 30p in the new 4K UHD Fine mode. Uncropped 4K 60p recording is possible in 4K UHD Standard mode. It is also the first APS-C EOS photography camera to support the Canon Log 3 gamma, good for colour grading and HDR video production.

Whereas the EOS R10 is capable of high-quality 4K UHD Fine 30p video achieved by 6K oversampling. Both cameras are capable of 4K HDR PQ video recording.
