New adorable face detected.
The discovery fills an important evolutionary gap between modern birds and the winged, dinosaur-like creatures that came before them.
“Maybe to some people it would be a small thing, but any kind of acknowledgement gives people power.”
Although the image did appear on the NASA website, it’s just an artist’s depiction.
We now have our first look at the Canon EOS R mirrorless camera and RF lenses that will be announced on Wednesday, September 5th. Photos and specifications have leaked onto the Web for the first time despite Canon’s ultra-high level of secrecy surrounding this product launch.
The Canon EOS R will reportedly contain a 30.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel AF. Features include large AF coverage (100% vertical and 88% horizontal), EV -6 low light autofocus, 4K video recording, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a mic jack, a headphone jack, a dustproof and drip-proof magnesium body, and the use of an LP-E6N battery.
On the back of the camera is an articulating screen.
And like the new Nikon Z cameras, the Canon EOS R will have an information display screen on the top.
Portability-wise, the camera will reportedly weigh 580g (1.28lbs) and measure 136x98m (5.35×3.86in) in width and height, respectively.
Here’s how the new Canon EOS R and a 24-105mm RF lens will compare in size to a Canon full-frame DSLR with a 24-105mm EF lens:
The new 12-pin RF mount is said to have an inner diameter of 54mm and a flange focal distance of 20mm. By comparison, the new Nikon Z series has an inner diameter of 55mm and a flange focal distance of 16mm.
Canon’s ecosystem of EF lenses will be compatible using one of three lens adapters: a standard EF-EOS R mount adapter, a control ring mount adapter, and a drop-in filter mount adapter.
Photos of the four first RF lenses have leaked as well. Here are the 35mm f/1.8 M IS, 50mm f/1.2L, 28-70mm f/2L, and 24-105mm f/4L.
There are still details and specs that have yet to be revealed regarding the camera, adapters, and lenses. Stay tuned.
