The new image processing system further improves AF and image quality

Canon has announced the development of the EOS R1, a full-frame mirrorless camera, set to debut as the flagship model for the EOS R SYSTEM equipped with an RF mount, with an anticipated release in 2024.

The EOS R1 is tailored for professionals, merging Canon's state-of-the-art technology with unmatched performance, durability, and reliability. It promises significant enhancements in both still image and video performance, catering to the demanding needs of professionals in fields such as sports, news reporting, and video production.

Equipped with the newly developed DIGIC Accelerator image processor alongside the existing DIGIC X processor and a new CMOS sensor, the EOS R1 boasts a revolutionary image processing system. This system allows for rapid data processing and introduces groundbreaking advancements in Auto Focus (AF) and other functions. 

Utilizing deep learning technology, Canon achieves high-speed and high-accuracy subject recognition. Enhanced subject tracking accuracy ensures continuous tracking even in dynamic scenarios, such as team sporting events with intersecting subjects.

The company remains committed to expanding the EOS R SYSTEM lineup, offering captivating cameras and RF lenses to meet the diverse needs of users and advance photography and video culture.
