  • 07 October, 2021


The ground-breaking new EOS VR SYSTEM includes the world’s first lens for digital interchangeable lens cameras
enabling 180° VR shooting with one camera to a single sensor.

UK: Canon Europe has announced the latest innovation in the EOS VR System - a pioneering new virtual reality capture solution that leverages the superior capabilities of the RF mount.

Canon’s EOS VR System, which includes a new Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L Dual Fisheye lens, has been developed in response to demand for high quality 3D 180° VR content. With the adoption of VR technology on the rise across many sectors such as training, travel, sports, live events and documentaries, Canon’s new offering simplifies the whole process of stereoscopic 180° VR capture and post-production.

The EOS VR System’s ability to create an immersive experience brings viewers into the heart of the action by providing professional image quality and higher levels of realism.

The Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L Dual Fisheye lens is Canon’s first ever interchangeable VR lens, designed to simplify the set-up and capture of 180° VR video and stills with the EOS R5 - all whilst retaining the high optical performance of the EOS R System.

This makes 3D content creation more practical for existing VR content creators, professional production companies as well as professionals looking to break into the VR market with a more efficient system.

Along with the Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L Dual Fisheye lens, Canon’s EOS VR System also includes a newly developed Canon VR software application (EOS VR Utility) and plug-in (EOS VR Plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro) to streamline the 180° VR post-production process, enhancing content creators’ experience from input to output.
