Canon has been drip-feeding us specs of the upcoming EOS R5 (opens in new tab) for a while now, teasing us with how great a video camera the new full-frame flagship is likely going to be. Compared to what we already know about the forthcoming shooter, the now almost-two-year-old EOS R (opens in new tab) feels quite lacklustre. 

Yet the EOS R is a pretty formidable camera, particularly if you're keen on stills rather than video. Featuring a full-frame 30.3MP sensor that delivers the same fantastic image quality you'll find on the EOS 5D Mark IV (opens in new tab), along with crisp 4K/30p video (albeit cropped), you won't be disappointed with the EOS R.

What makes it an even more tempting offer for Aussie photographers is the pretty decent 24% discount on the shooter you can currently get on eBay Australia. It's being offered by VideoPro on the auction site, where it's already listed at one of the lowest prices you'll see among retailers. Thankfully eBay always has a checkout code you can use to save a few extra dollary-doos and you've got the recipe for a great camera deal.

Until April 23, you can use the code PSIGNAL10 at checkout to snag 10% off items purchased from several Australian retailers, and VideoPro just happens to be one of them. The use of the code shaves off a total of AU$701 from Canon's own RRP of AU$2,849, bringing the price of the camera down to a more tempting AU$2,147.85, including postage.

Canon EOS R (body only) | AU$2,147.85 (opens in new tab) (RRP AU$2,849; save AU$701.15)

It's one of the lowest prices you can currently find on this mirrorless marvel in Australia from a major retailer selling via eBay. It's already listed on the auction site for a very tempting AU$2,370, but use the code PSIGNAL10 at checkout by April 23 and you'll be able to save over AU$700 on the camera, with the price shown here including postage. That's 24% off the Canon's own RRP and a great deal if you're after a really good full-frame mirrorless camera with a growing stable of native lenses.

In addition to looking after they day-to-day functioning of Digital Camera World in Australia, Sharmishta is the Managing Editor (APAC) for TechRadar as well, and helps produce two of Future's photography print magazines Down Under. Her passion for photography started when she was wandering the wilds of India studying monkeys (yes, life took a sharp turn somewhere along the way) and is entirely self-taught. That puts her in the unique position of understanding what a beginner or enthusiast is looking for in a camera or lens, and writes to help those like her on their path to developing their skills or finding the best gear. While she experiments with quite a few genres of photography, her main area of interest is nature photography – wildlife, landscapes and macro. She still prefers an optical viewfinder but is utterly fascinated with what mirrorless technology has been able to achieve. 


With an ear to the ground in the Asia-Pacific territory, she is constantly on top of camera news and breaking developments in the Australian region, in addition to sourcing local deals during big retail events like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday / Cyber Monday.
