CANON EOS R8 WITH RF 24-50MM LENS KIT SUMMARY
Combining the most compact and lightweight full-frame Canon mirrorless camera with a newly developed zoom, the Canon EOS R8 with RF 24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens Kit is an effective kit for hybrid content creators. The ultra-wide to standard zoom is a versatile lens for all sorts of content and features Canon’s fast STM technology, along with optical image stabilisation to help keep photos sharp and videos smooth.
Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS II AF in the R8 complements the lens stepping motor, ensuring you can capture a broad range of subjects effectively, tracking them even as they move about the frame. In electronic shutter mode the R8 reaches blistering speeds of up to 40fps, while RAW mode pre-shoots and captures 30fps, helping you get the shot, no matter how fast the subject is moving.
Video can be recorded without a 30 minute clip limit, in beautiful oversampled 4K/60p and as fast as 180fps Full HD for slow motion playback. A new photo / video switch on the body, high refresh rate EVF and large 3-inch LCD confirms that this is an excellent camera and lens kit for hybrid creators joining Canon’s mirrorless system.
