Max Shutter speed
Canon R8 can shoot continuously at max speed of 6.0 fps
and has max shutter speed of 1/4000 sec
. R8 also has an electronic shutter which can shoot silently at max speed of 1/16000s
. One thing to keep in mind is that electronic shutter may cause rolling shutter / jello effects, and also banding issues under artificial light on your images.
Unfortunately R8 doesn't have a built-in flash but it has a flash shoe for mounting external flashes.
Canon R8 features both Contrast Detection and Phase Detection autofocus (AF) systems which ensures speed and accuracy of focusing in most situations. The AF system has 1053 points to choose from.
Canon R8 also features Face detection AF
where it intelligently detects the faces in the frame and locks the focus automatically. In addition to the face detect AF, R8 has a more sophisticated feature called Eye Tracking AF
which detects and locks focus to the selected eye of the person in the frame accurately and tracks as the subject moves. Eye tracking AF of Canon R8 is a perfect feature for shooting portraits and is especially useful when fast lenses are used and the depth of field is very narrow.
Macro shooters will love Canon R8's Focus Stacking feature. In this mode, R8 automatically composites multiple shots taken at different focal positions using focus bracketing to create a single image with maximum depth of field.
