Camera giant Canon has introduced its first full-frame, mirrorless camera to Thailand, the EOS R, along with four RF lenses and three RF mount adapters to allow flexibility in using EF lenses with the new EOS R.

A compact Speedlite external flash was also introduced.

Warin Tantipongpanich, vice president in Thailand, said: “Canon is committed to the development of new technologies for cameras and lenses to fulfil the needs of professional and amateur users throughout the ages. 

"The EOS R System can redefine photographic limits to convey the user’s creativity in conditions not possible before. We also keep in mind the notions of ‘fast, comfortable, high image quality' which are the basic concept of EOS.”

The EOS R is equipped with a 35mm, 30.3-megapixel CMOS image sensor and the 54mm-diameter RF mount to pair with the new RF series of lenses through 12-pin contact points for enhanced communication between the lens and camera. 

When using RF mount adapter, the EOS R is compatible with all existing EF and EF-S lenses.
