    Canon’s roadmap for 2019, included an EOS R camera that no one is expecting? [CR2]

    Niche R? Lets see. Whats niche now? The 50 mp high rez 5Ds/r. Couple that with 3K+ RF “studio” lenses that were released? Plus canon’s commercial and studio customers? I guess it would be a high rez 50mp R with ibs! Ibs takes care of the 5Dr/s c high rez cam shake issue. Eye focus good for...

    EOS R and 135 L issue?

    Had an F2 135 for years. First shot with my trusty crusty 24-70 f2.8 in the dark with the R. Felt like my lens got an upgrade with af off the sensor and focused in areas in the dark where my 5d3 couldn’t. Then shot with F135 and despite being an f2, had less of a hit ratio in same location.

    Using the canon R and the BG-E22 vertical grip VERTICALLY with touch-drag

    Thanks for the reply. one thing to look out for with the low price in some is that I believe canon sells the grip only WITHOUT the usb charger for the lesser price. FYI, the usb charger only charges the batteries serially, i.e. one ofter the other. Also the handle has to be in the off over...

    Using the canon R and the BG-E22 vertical grip VERTICALLY with touch-drag

    Hey gang, Just picked up the BG-E22 battery grip to mainly provide extra battery power for when you shoot with Wi-Fi transfer on. Secondly to help with the 70-200 balance and vertical shooting. Regarding touch drag, I had it mapped to the top right quadrant when I shot before the grip. Heres...

    EOS R @ HD 24fps 1/50 sec shutter HDMI out canon log Ninja 2

    Hey gang. Typed in all the buzz words relative to this. Have an old Ninja 2 I used to use on an 5D3 (ah..2014.. the memories). Just shot video for the first time on the eos R last night with just the internal video. I know the ninja V is being paired with the R for HDMO out b/c of the 4K...

    Is the RF 28-70 f2 trying to be too many things at once?

    All Good points. This is why I still keep the Miserable M-series bodies (M-5) because their size is amazing for the IQ you get.. the 11-22, the F2 22mm, real damn curious how the new 35mm is. I keep a Leica M 50mm f1.4 adapted to the Canon EF-M as my 50mm. Its such a small system that used all...

    canon st-e3 rt and speed light 600 basic flash compensation question

    Agreed, but if so it would "overexpose" and constantly change. I used the speed lights like "spotlights" on the singers. ETTL will always fight for the optimal exposure and blast the environment with light. I prefer pools of light that cascade to black, hence why I use Rogue Snoots on the speed...

    F2 135mm prime tapping out in AF in dark room?

    thx Mt Spokane I had swapped lenses without turning the camera off since I didn't want to break the wifi connection to my iPad. It was DLing images while I shot. Thats the only thing I can think of.

    F2 135mm prime tapping out in AF in dark room?

    Hey gang, I usually shoot the R (and previously the 5D3) at a local bar with musicians, iso 800-1600, f4 shutter 160 with a F2.8 24-70 MK2. Rarely have AF lock issues. Swapped it out with a faster F2 135 for a few shots, switching to F2 for DOF. Same location and subject as my f2.8 24-72. The...

    canon st-e3 rt and speed light 600 basic flash compensation question

    Hey gang, sorry for the basic noob-sounding question. Had a flash compensation brain fail so I figure let me hit up the group: I shoot new Canon R (Formally on 5d3) with the remote canon st-e3-rt controlling 5 canon 600 EX-RT mark1 speedlights. Camera is on manual, F4, 160 shutter, iso 800...
