Canon 1DX Mark III Registration Details

But, why so late ?

In general the registration details of the camera become available to us before the formal announcement of products. But  to prevent Early leaks of camera models, (some) camera makers are now doing wireless registration bit late. Or, may be they are more synchronized with these wireless certification agency, so they are not disclosing product information early.

We will update you soon as we get any new information

Click here to buy Canon EOS Ra Camera at B&H Store

So, finally long rumored Canon EOS Ra camera announced today with a price tag of $2,499. As we have told you before the camera features same core specification as we have seen in the Canon EOS R camera. They have added two new features in the Canon EOS R camera

Major Difference between the Canon EOS R vs EOS Ra camera

  1. Modified the IR filter in front of the full-frame sensor
  2. EOS Ra also offers a 30x magnification option in the EVF and in Live View, a dramatic increase from the 10x magnification found in the standard EOS R

 

Aside from those two alterations, the EOS Ra is effectively identical to the EOS R, complete with the 30MP sensor, 3.69M-dot OLED EVF, dot-matrix LED panel and magnesium-alloy body.

Canon EOS Ra Major Specification

 

  • 30.3 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • Modified Filter for Enhanced Night Sky Recording
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF with 5,655 Manually Selectable AF Positions
  • RF Mount Compatible with RF Lenses and EF/EF-S Lenses* (with Optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS R)

CAPTURE THE BEAUTY OF THE NIGHT SKY WITH CANON’S FIRST FULL-FRAME MIRRORLESS CAMERA FOR ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY

Introducing the EOS Ra Camera with Specialized Filtration that Delivers Four Times Greater Hydrogen-alpha Wavelength (656.3 nm) Transmittance Compared to the EOS R

MELVILLE, N.Y., November 5, 2019 — In the words of poet Quintus Ennius, “No one regards what is before his or her feet; we all gaze at the stars.” Helping to gaze and capture the beauty of the stars and beyond, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the company’s first full-frame mirrorless camera for astrophotography, the EOS Ra. This new camera was built off the EOS R system combining new features, such as four times greater transmittance of hydrogen-alpha (Hα) light of 656.3 nm compared to the original EOS R. For astrophotographers and hobbyists who enjoy capturing the detailed splendor of the night sky, the new EOS Ra will be an ideal camera to shoot with.

“Since the introduction of the EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera system last fall, Canon has remained committed to launching a line of impressive and innovative EOS R models and a strong variety of RF lenses and accessories to meet the needs of every skill level of photographer,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As a group of photographers who are passionate about capturing what we can’t see with our naked eyes, the new EOS Ra is designed for astrophotographers looking to capture vivid imagery of the night sky.”

Targeting the needs of astrophotographers, the new EOS Ra full-frame mirrorless camera incorporates many advanced features of the EOS R, such as RF mount design, a 30.3MP CMOS sensor, high-precision electronic viewfinder, high-sensitivity, low-noise performance and 4K time-lapse shooting. Optional accessories include an AC adapter kit, which allows the camera to be powered through an AC wall outlet or a battery-powered inverter, a BG-E22 battery grip and three EF-EOS R mount adapters to accommodate the entire range of over seventy EF & EF-S lenses.

Other features include:

  • Enhanced transmission of Hα rays (656.3 nm wavelength) through an infrared cutoff filter, helping to capture high-precision images of the deep-red wavelengths emitted by nebulae in vivid color, without any special camera alterations.
  • A 30x maximum magnification, allowing users to make extremely precise manual focus adjustments*.
  • Support for all Canon RF, EF and EF-S lenses (with the use of an optional EF-EOS R mount adapter), including more than 70 lenses from the EF series as well as RF series lenses, which deliver superb image quality. The variety of lenses, such as the large-diameter f/1.2 lenses, ultra-wide-angle lenses, and super-telephoto EF lenses, among others, are all well suited to help photographers to choose the best match for their specific astrophotography purposes.

Availability and Pricing

The Canon EOS Ra full-frame mirrorless camera is scheduled to be available in mid-December 2019 for an estimated retail price of $2,499.00 for the body only**.

A bit more about Canon EOS Ra, and Major Specifications

Finally we have the major specs of the Canon EOS Ra camera. Let’s take a look at the major specs of the camera. It features almost same core specs as we have seen in Canon EOS R camera.

Canon EOS Ra Major Specification [Rumor]

  • 30.3MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
  • Infrared Sensitivity–Astrophotography
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 4K30, 24 Video
  • C-Log & 10-Bit HDMI Out
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • 3.69m-Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder
  • 3.15″ 2.1m-Dot Swivel Touchscreen LCD
  • Expanded ISO 50-102400
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, SD UHS-II Card Slot
  • Multi-Function Bar, Dual Pixel RAW

Modified infrared filter and a low-noise sensor with heightened hydrogen-alpha sensitivity. These modifications allow the camera to capture magnificent photographs of “red hydrogen emission” nebulae and other cosmic phenomena.

The major difference between the EOS R and EOS Ra is the modified IR cut filter. Canon has altered the filter to provide the Canon EOSRa with greater infrared light sensitivity and enabled it to achieve hydrogen-alpha light transparency. Hydrogen-alpha, also referred to as H-alpha or Hα, is a very specific red visible spectral line created by hydrogen, with a wavelength of 656.28nm. This red visible line in the spectrum occurs when hydrogen electrons fluctuate between the second and third-tiered orbits (or energy levels) of a hydrogen atom (according to the Balmer Series). When they move between these levels they absorb or release energy, and this emission and absorption of energy occurs at 656nm.

The IR cut filter modification of the Canon EOS Ra helps to allow as much light as possible to pass through this narrow bandwidth at the H-alpha frequency. The modification essentially allows you to photograph reddish, diffuse nebulae and other astronomical phenomena in a clearer, more brilliant manner—void of the IR attenuation associated with traditional hot mirrors and other IR-blocking technologies on most cameras. The need to photograph light at this wavelength is paramount because the color of light emitted from nebulae is strongest, and most pure at the hydrogen-alpha line. The color of this light is outside the parameters of the visible spectrum, and our eyes, or camera, cannot accurately render this light without filtration.

Canon EOS Ra Images Leaked, Announcement Soon

As we have said earlier also in our post the camera will have almost same core specification as we have seen in the Canon EOS R camera. Except a modified low-pass filter which will be more sensitive to infrared light.

World First FF Mirrorless Camera Dedicated for Astrophotography

We have no FF Mirrorless camera dedicated for Astrophotography. In Nikon we have the D850(A) FF DSLR dedicated for astro work. So. literally Canon will soon become world first and only camera maker to have FF Mirrorless camera for astrophotography. Sony A7R IV and A7R III mirrorless camera know as star eaters, Hope Sony and Nikon will also join the astro race soon with capable cameras.
