The upcoming Canon EOS R1 flagship camera: everything you need to know

What we know about the upcoming Canon EOS R1 flagship camera (via Adorama):

Impressive Image Processing

The upcoming EOS R1 comes with a newly developed DIGIC accelerator paired with a DIGIC X processor. Additionally, it has an all-new CMOS sensor. What are these features?

DIGIC Accelerator and DIGIC X Processor

This is a recently created image processor by Canon, which is designed to work well with the DIGIC X processor. Primarily, it accelerates image data processing, making your camera’s overall performance infinitely smoother.

The DIGIC X processor is a retained feature from previous models, and Canon EOS R system enthusiasts know it for its high-speed image processing abilities. Combining the DIGIC accelerator and the DIGIC X processor is pure genius, and makes the EOS R1 camera capable of even larger volumes of data efficiently.

New CMOS Sensor

The EOS R1 camera introduces a whole new CMOS sensor — and boy, it’s a powerful one!

Because of the CMOS sensor, the EOS R1 camera is expected to have a better sensitivity to light, a.k.a better low-light performance. This could potentially point towards better and sharper photos.

Autofocus Capabilities

The integration of deep learning technology pours into the EOS R1’s better subject recognition and tracking, compared to other models.

Greater Flexibility and Reliability

The Canon EOS R1 will be flexible and reliable in every environment, even fast-paced ones. With the EOS R1, you can capture quick-moving subjects or shoot a pic to use in your news article without breaking a sweat.

“Action Priority” Function

One of the key features of the whole camera is the autofocus “Action Priority” function. With this important feature, the camera is able to analyze the actions of the subject right as they happen. For example, the camera can identify when a basketball player is about to shoot the ball. The “Action Priority” function adjusts the focus within a heartbeat, delivering a sharp and accurate image.

Image Quality That Exceeds Expectations

To set itself apart from the rest, the EOS R1 mirrorless camera further ensures breathtaking image quality through its advanced image noise reduction function. This function is made to minimize unwanted effects such as noise, present in digital images.
