Canon EOS Ra, the astrophotography version of EOS R, has been officially announced. We first learned about it in September, when an instruction leaflet was published online. Then a few photos leaked, and now the modified version of the Canon R is finally out.
According to a recent report, Canon is about to introduce an astrophotography-specific full-frame mirrorless camera. It will be named EOS Ra, and we now have the first leaked images of the upcoming camera from Canon.
Astrophotography-specific versions of cameras aren’t all that uncommon for camera companies to announce. Nikon’s done it in the past with the D810a and a few others, and so has Canon with the EOS 20Da in 2005 and the EOS 60Da in 2010. Now, Canon is looking to update, with an Astrophotography version of the EOS R mirrorless camera, according to a leaked manual.
