Images and price of Canon EOS Ra camera leaked
Canon appears to be progressing with the EOS Ra full-frame mirrorless digital camera, although there has still been no official information in regard to the launch date for the device yet. The camera appeared on the Adorama website for a while but has since been taken down – but not until a handy screenshot was taken that revealed the EOS Ra was available for pre-order at US$2,499.00 (body only).
The Canon EOS Ra has a unique selling point in that it has a modified infrared filter, with the official instruction leaflet for the camera boasting that it has “approximately four times the transmittance of hydrogen-alpha light (656 nm) as the EOS R”. It’s a professional-grade camera for those who like to take night shots or capture the stars at their twinkling best.
Along with being ideal for astrophotography, the Canon EOS Ra apparently features a 30.3 MP sensor, 5,655 manually selectable AF positions, and 30x magnification. There is a rumor that Canon will be announcing the EOS Ra properly soon, and it could even be available to interested buyers before the month is through.
