Canon EOS R and Nikon Z are getting the first third-party lenses. Chinese company Kipon is releasing ELEGANT, a line-up of five prime lenses for both Nikon’s and Canon’s full-frame mirrorless cameras.
Canon got a lot of flak when the EOS R camera with no in-body image stabilisation. Well, it got flak for a lot of things, like the single card slot and ridiculously cropped 4K video mode, but the lack of IBIS was a big one, too.
Canon has said previously said that, essentially, they didn’t put IBIS in the EOS R because they didn’t feel that putting it in the body was the right way to go. Well, according to a post over on Canon Rumors, it seems that Canon might have actually listened to feedback and will be putting it into one of their new EOS R bodies sooner than we thought.
Although the Canon EOS R has received some criticism since its initial announcement, especially from the “Pro” users, Japan’s not listening. They’re going to buy it anyway. And they’re going go buy it to the tune of 22% full-frame mirrorless market share in only a month.
This instant boom in sales, combined with the Nikon Z7 release has seen Sony’s market share drop from 99.5% in July down to 67% as of October. BCN Retail has released their latest full-frame mirrorless sales report, including a breakdown of full-frame mirrorless sales between April and October 2018.
Photographers and gearheads like to see specs and big numbers. Huge ISO, big megapixels, fast frame rates, whatever the specs may be. Those specs can be justifiably important to certain photographers, though. If you regularly photograph things that have certain technical demands, there’s no way around it. But those specs don’t really mean a thing if the camera itself is difficult to use.
When Canon announced the EOS R, many were disappointed. And it wasn’t just the single card slot, either. It was that Nikon had just announced a pair of bodies, with one being a high 45MP resolution, while Canon was only launching one.
Now, though, it seems that those high resolution prayers may be getting answered. And according to Canon Watch, that may happen as soon as next year’s Photokina in May – if not sooner.
Low-light high-ISO performance has become the new megapixel war, particularly when it comes to video. And this year, there have been a lot of new cameras released trying to push those limits.
In this video, YouTuber and filmmaker, Max Yuryev puts five of them to the test. He compares the Sony A7III, Nikon Z7, Canon EOS R, Fuji X-T3 and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K to see which is the low-light king.
Canon EOS R was launched two months ago, and so far we’ve learned a lot about it and seen a couple of reviews. But there are still some features that you may not know about. And in this video, ZY Productions brings you five things that the Canon EOS R hides among its settings. Did you know about them?
The SD card market seems to be hotting up, and getting pretty competitive (and fast!). With Lexar seemingly back, ProGrade taking square aim at the high-end market, and SanDisk & Sony releasing new cards boasting big numbers like there’s no tomorrow, who really is the fastest these days?
The Canon EOS R was cause for some internal controversy here at Kolari Vision. After all, we’re in the middle of The Great Mirrorless Camera War. Tensions are bound to rise, turning brother against brother, camera tech against camera tech, and photographer against photographer. Despite this, I will do my best to describe the form factor and internal construction of the EOS R in a fair and unbiased manner.
The new Z and RF mounts on the Nikon Z6/7 and Canon EOS R have been a big deal for a lot of people contemplating making the switch. This is especially true for owners of F or EF mount Sigma Art, Contemporary and Sport Series lenses.
Sigma has now done some more testing and updated the compatibility lists for both cameras using the Nikon Z to F & Canon RF to EF lens mount adapters. There are also some notes when using specific older model lenses.
