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.
When I was first introduced to the Olympus PEN E-P1 in May of 2009, I saw an opportunity to work with an interchangeable lens camera that was high quality, affordable, and nimble. In June of 2009, I introduced my podcast audience to the camera. I’ve been working with mirrorless bodies ever since.
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.
With the release of Nikon’s new mirrorless camera and the impending release of Canon’s competitor, we are seeing the future of photography as we know it. However, in the response of some we are also seeing the demise of the community as a whole. Where passion and creativity once dominated the perceived agility of a camera, now spec sheets and internet comment sections threaten to destroy the art as we know it. People have started refusing the words of true artists and now mindlessly worship the words of talking heads that make edgy YouTube videos.
As a community and as a family, we can do better.
It seems like Canon is about to focus more on mirrorless cameras over the following year. Before we get to see the two new mirrorless cameras, the company might launch another iteration of the EOS M5. According to the rumors, the EOS M5 Mark II will feature some improvements over the previous model, such as 4K video.
It’s pretty much a given at this point that both Nikon and Canon will come crawling and fumbling into the world of mirrorless cameras. It’s simply become inevitable if they want to survive in a market that seems to be rapidly becoming Sony-centric. Many have switched over the past few years, and many more will do the same if Nikon and Canon don’t impress us with mirrorless tech. Soon.
The rumours of impending full-frame mirrorless cameras have been floating around for a little while for both manufacturers now. And while it may be a case of too little, too late, both will have to deliver something amazing. Both will also likely require brand new lenses. And spotted recently by the blog Hi-Low’s Note, a new Canon 16-28mm f/2.8 full-frame mirrorless lens patent offers some insight into what may be coming.
