Canon India launches new camera along with ‘pancake’ lens

Canon India has launched its most compact, lightweight, and affordable camera — ‘EOS R100’, along with the RF28mm f/2.8 STM lens — the first-ever ‘pancake’ prime lens in the RF lens line-up.

The pancake lens is capable of providing exceptional image quality in a remarkably small and portable form, and the new lens is developed based on photographers’ inputs.

At less than 2.5cm long when retracted and weighing no more than a bar of soap at around 120g, the RF28mm f/2.8 STM is thin just like the word ‘pancake’ suggests, said the company.

Moreover, the new Canon EOS R100 comes with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection so that users can share pictures to social media easily through the Canon Camera Connect app via their smartphone.
