Canon Inc. will begin selling full-frame mirrorless camera in late October. Its EOS R will be priced at 237,500 yen ($2,130),
Doing away with the mirror system in the EOS R reduces the distance between the lens and the image sensor – something that’s expected to potentially mitigate image blurring and increase stability. Mirrorless cameras are known to be better enabled to grab light and help photographers take pictures of fast-moving objects. Canon will be joining older players of this technology Sony Corp. and Nikon Corp. While this means that competition in the segment could potentially heat up, consumers/professional photographers would have more options beyond their smartphones.
