Should you switch from APS-C to full-frame? Or perhaps shoot large format? Does it matter? What will it change? Ah, so many questions. In this video, Jay P. Morgan and Kenneth Meryl have decided to test four sensor sizes side by side and give you the answers. They shot with a large format, a full-frame, an APS-C and a micro 4/3 camera. Here you can compare the images side-by-side and see for yourself how much of a difference there is.
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.
While many Canon shooters process their images on the desktop with something like Lightroom or Capture One, Canon’s Digital Photo Pro software doesn’t suck. A lot of Canon photographers still use it and recommend it to newer photographers who want to shoot raw without getting locked into a subscription or buying expensive software.
But as more photographers start to include tablets into their workflow, software needs to adapt. While Canon may sometimes take time to adapt, they’ve now released DPP Express; A version of Digital Photo Pro for the iPad and iPad Pro.
It looks like Panasonic isn’t the only company not giving up on their previous range of mirrorless cameras despite bringing a new one out. Despite the recent EOS R announcement, Canon Rumors reports that Canon is planning to release two new EOS M mirrorless cameras next year. And, no, I doubt any of them will be full frame.
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.
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…]
Here is something to get your Saturday night going. nokishita-camera.com, a site that is usually pretty reliable, just shared what they say are the full frame mirrorless Canon EOS R photos and specs:
In the past couple of years, we’ve heard of many photographers switching from DSLR to mirrorless. Some of them have gone the other way around, and yet some have changed from MFT to mirrorless. They all have their reasons for these decisions, but switching systems isn’t a trend that came with mirrorless cameras. The “godfather of sports photography” Don Morley changed systems a couple of times in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. In 1976, he ended up using Canon and he told the story about why he made the final switch.
Nobody can really deny Sony’s popularity amongst the enthusiast & hobbyist market. They’ve pretty much taken the world by storm amongst those who want smaller, lighter systems, without sacrificing features or quality to pursue their passion. And the Sony A7III set all kinds of new standards for the term “basic model”.
For many working professionals, though, who depend on their kit to keep a roof over their heads, they’ve stuck to what they know. That means Nikon and Canon DSLRs. But Sony seems to be winning them over with their latest round of fast, accurate mirrorless bodies.
