Canon EOS R8 Achieves an Overall DxOMark Sensor Score of 93 Points

DxOMark completed their full in-depth review for 24.2MP sensor inside the Canon EOS R8 camera, and the Canon EOS R8 achieved an excellent overall DxOmark score of 93 points with a combination of 24.5 bits color depth, 14.7 EV dynamic range, and 3295 Low-Light ISO.

Conclusion from DxOMark:

The full-frame Canon EOS R8 is touted as an ideal travel camera, and its mix of affordable pricing, relatively compact dimensions and strong feature set make for a compelling argument. Initially, though, the adoption of a conventional front-side illuminated 24.2 MP CMOS sensor appears to be a weak link. However, it’s clear, from our tests, the Canon EOS R8 sensor is capable of producing extremely high image quality. Indeed in terms of color depth and dynamic range, it is on par with the leading BSI-type CMOS sensors. What’s more, that’s throughout the ISO sensitivity range not just at the ‘headline’ maximum or peak value measured at base. While it remains unclear exactly how Canon has achieved such a significant performance uplift with an FSI-type CMOS sensor, competition like this is always good to see.
