Canon EOS R10

24MP Dual Pixel APS-C CMOS sensor | 4K/30p video (60p with crop) | 15fps shooting (23fps with e-shutter)

What we like:

  • Capable stills and video camera
  • Simple, effective AF in stills
  • Relatively easy-to-use

What we don't:

  • Video autofocus is less effective than stills
  • Mediocre battery life
  • Few sensible RF lens choices
The Canon EOS R10 is a 24MP mid-level APS-C mirrorless camera for stills and video shooting.
The R10 has a relatively small body but finds room for two command dials. Most key settings can be accessed through the Q menu, making it easy to access the camera's core functions.
The EOS R10 is an approachable, capable option for stills and video
The R10 has a powerful AF tracking system with subject recognition that makes it especially good at focusing on people, animals and vehicles. We found it both easy to use and effective. 15fps shooting with the mechanical shutter is good, though the buffer is limited.
The R10 can shoot 4K video at up to 60p with a crop, or 30p using its full sensor width. The footage isn't the most detailed but, as in stills mode, there's the option to shoot footage for HDR TVs. Autofocus isn't as dependable as it is in stills mode.
Image quality from the R10 is very good, producing the typical attractive Canon JPEGs. Its Raw files offer a reasonable degree of processing flexibility and it can produce true high dynamic range stills if you have an HDR display to play them back on.
With the EOS R10 Canon has re-created the capability and usability of its popular Rebel series DSLRs in its newer RF mirrorless lens mount. You can adapt older DSLR lenses but there are currently few RF lenses that are a good match for the R10. A very strong option if the kit zoom is sufficient for you.
