The Canon EOS R is a full-frame mirrorless camera with a fully-articulated screen that you can tilt and flip based on the image you're trying to capture. It's very well-built, and it takes pictures with amazing image quality. Also, its excellent photo autofocus system helps keep moving subjects in focus. It also has a decent video quality when you record in 4k and FHD, though it struggles a bit to capture clear footage in low-light settings.

The Canon EOS R comes in 'Black'. We tested the variant with the RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 is STM lens, and you can see the label for the model we tested here.
You can also purchase this camera with an RF 24-105mm F/4L IS USM lens, or without any lenses at all. However, we haven't tested the camera in any other configuration, so we can't confirm its performance.
If you come across another version, let us know in the discussions so we can update our review.
