Canon's mirrorless EOS R System has been designed with the needs of videographers and filmmakers in mind right from the start. From the groundbreaking Canon EOS C70 and EOS R5 C Cinema EOS cameras to revolutionary RF lenses such as the Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE for 180° VR productions, the advanced RF lens mount at the heart of the design unlocks new opportunities for innovative video cameras and lenses.
"The high-speed communication between the lens and the camera is a big advantage," explains Canon Europe Senior Product Specialist Mike Burnhill. "One of the benefits is that we are able to use electronic focus breathing suppression to prevent the angle of view from changing as you focus.
"A normal cinema lens tends to be very large because it incorporates a mechanical mechanism to help overcome focus breathing. But the RF mount and the use of Nano USMs and floating focusing groups means that we can do that electronically, enabling a very compact lens design."
