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.
They sure don’t waste any time over at Magic Lantern HQ. A1ex at ML sent over a couple of firmware files over to Andrew Reid at EOS HD to test out on his new Canon EOS R camera. While neither file currently adds any functionality to the EOS R, one of them does prove that Magic Lantern commands will be at least possible on Canon’s new mirrorless.
There have been a lot of complaints about the Canon EOS R mirrorless camera. It only has one card slot, it crops when shooting 4K video, and there’s no IBIS. “WTF Canon?” the collective Internet proclaimed. Well, Canon has now responded to at least one of those issues.
That issue is the lack of IBIS. Digital Camera World spoke to Canon UK’s product intelligence consultant, David Parry to find out the answer. And, essentially, having stabilisation in the body isn’t as good as having it in the lens.
The announcement of Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera got many photographers excited, while the others were disappointed. In his latest video, Tony Northrup tested the Canon EOS R compared to some of its biggest competitors: the Canon 5D Mk IV, Canon 6D Mk II, Sony a7 III, and Sony a7R III. Take a look at the video and see how Canon’s full-frame mirrorless stacks up against competition in terms of image quality.
August and September have been pretty exciting as far as gear announcements go. Nikon Z7 and Z6 are out, along with the lenses and adapter. Canon’s full-frame-mirrorless system has also been launched, and Fujifilm X-T3 is out, too. Many photographers are thinking whether to switch systems or gear brands, and it’s a kind of a big decision to make. In this video, Mark Denney discusses three very important things to consider before you make the final decision. Because, when you take everything into consideration – you may not need to buy the new gear after all.
Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand, fast! It’s only been public for five minutes and already some of the biggest Canon proponents are slating the new Canon EOS R mirrorless camera. “R is for Resign,” says EOSHD’s Andrew Reid. And I have to be honest, I see his point.
Well, that’s it, the two big die hard DSLR manufacturers have now both announced their new full frame mirrorless cameras. Nikon’s Z6 & Z7 have received a bit of a mixed reaction. Will Canon’s new EOS R see the same warm reception? Well, only time will tell, but for those who like to complain, it looks like Canon have left the door ajar.
The guys at Syrp managed to get their hands on the new camera for a couple of days, along with the full complement of new RF mount lenses. They also got hold of Canon’s new trio of EF mount adapters. Yes, there’s three of them.[Read More…]
After some rumors about Canon full-frame mirrorless and its announcement date, it’s now officially here: Canon EOS R is finally announced, along with four new RF-mount lenses. The full frame mirrorless camera features a new RF mount, so three EF to RF adapters will also be available. Now that we have the official info and specs, let’s see if Canon’s new camera will meet your expectations.
According to serial-leakers Nokishita, Canon’s new mirrorless camera will be announced at some point during the next four weeks. They’ve just posted a list for new product announcements coming in September that includes a new “EOS R” camera, along with four “RF” mount lenses, along with a few EF and EF-M lenses.
