Mirrorless Cameras

Canon EOS Ra

Capture the night sky with breath-taking clarity and record more detail than you ever thought possible. This is a camera with real power to see beyond the stars.

Capture the full beauty of the night sky

The EOS Ra features a new IR filter array in front of the sensor, which enables four times as much Hydrogen Alpha light to be transmitted, compared to the normal EOS R. This enables the camera to capture the distinct reddish colour of nebula.

Creativity with no boundaries

The EOS Ra is the perfect camera for capturing a variety of astro images. Explore the depths of the Universe and discover hidden colours in the night sky. Take a look at what you can capture with the compact and powerful, EOS Ra.

Canon aims to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions from its business activities by 2050

We will achieve this by delivering an average improvement of 3% per year in the lifecycle CO2 emissions improvement index per product. Which if sustained would mean roughly a 50% reduction from 2008 levels by the year 2030. We recognise this to be in line with the level of reduction called for by the Paris Agreement.

We will continue to undertake target reviews from a long-term perspective as a way of checking our contribution to the realisation of a low-carbon society.
