Entry-level EOS R will omit touch bar

Canon EOS R Touch bar update

Canon’s EOS R brought a first to cameras with the introduction of the touch bar: a user configurable slider (arrow) to adjust settings like ISO sensitivity and exposure compensation. The first iteration of the function bar didn’t work too well; it can be laggy and unresponsive and lacks precision – a far cry from a simple control dial, usability wise. In addition, some users were unhappy with the location of the bar.

Entry-level EOS R body

Of the two new EOS R bodies that we expect later this year, the entry level EOS R might omit the bar entirely. This is according to an information that was relayed by Canon Rumors today. The obvious explanation is simple cost-cutting but it might also be that Canon feels that beginners and amateurs won’t appreciate the bar as it is implemented right now.

The official announcement of the rumored EOS R Pro (40 -75 megapixel resolution, depending on who you ask) should come within the next 4-6 weeks while the entry-level body (20 – 24 megapixel) won’t hit shelves before summer. Pricing is still unknown; a sub $1.000 body would make the biggest splash and mean big trouble for Nikon and Sony.
