    Gotcha! You are correct. 5DSR is a capable camera that can certainly be used for a lower res, bread and butter shooting. However my understanding is they the camera is optimised for a different type of work. In my view there’re are two type of cameras: generalist type of camera and a...

    I believe that Canon learnt their lesson with 5DS/R and market is better understood for them by now. A ultra high res rig is an appealing proposition to many beyond the PJ and run and gun crowd. I have no visibility into 5dS/R vs 5DIV sales data but would hazard a guess that market emphasis...

    With al With all due respect, your case is an exception. The majority of event shooters would resort to a lower resolution cameras. This is an opinion.

    Cue the head spinning, The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III to be 20.1mp? [CR1]

    I am pretty sure Canon is NOT abandoning JPEG. Please correct that. HEIF will be offered as an alternative along with JPEG and RAW. This has been mentioned is in the Canon’s recent DPR interview.

    Keith, what are your observations in relation to optimal shutter speed requirements for shooting stationary subjects with 90D? I shoot with two 5D IV bodies. I found that my sweet spot is around 1/FLx1.5. I do not shoot people slower than1/60 no matter what even at a UW angles. Thank you...

    Some features are essential and some features are nice to have. If you are on a paid assignment outdoors and continue shooting whatever weather conditions are, then you need a camera that’s is reasonably weather sealed. According to this highly reputable resource Canon R is not weather sealed...

    You comment is: why R is not considered a Pro body? Answer: you can cram as much cool Features as you like in a camera but if the camera is not weather resistant enough or not rugged enough, it won’t survive a commercial environment.

    Your use case is not a typical run and gun scenario. You cannot shoot people at 1/5 of a second. You run and gun with a pair of cameras typically. event shooters do not run and gun with high res rigs typically. There are exceptions.

    I don’t recall kicking off an argument with you. I said that 80Mb is an overkill for Run and Gun gigs. Your Canon 90D argument isn’t quite valid. What shutter speed range are we talking about again? Exactly. And if you need to print a file or two per annum large, then go ahead and break out...

    because it is not rugged enough to withstand a commercial use: CPS membership is only available to professionals who own eligible EOS 1D, EOS 5D, L-series lens and Cinema EOS products (view eligible products). there you have it.

    That would absolutely make sense provided files are around 50Mb each give or take. I hope this is correct as I am out of my depth with this already. Canon folks are smarter than us. I hope they get this camera right. I really do.

    40 or 30mp M-RAW option would be perfect, provided there is no an IQ loss associated with shooting in M-RAW.

    Because managing 100mb large files for Screen output and or printing 8” x 12” is Such a joy. 5dsr was a specialist camera at 50Mb. The new rumoured rig at 80Mb is clearly overkill for run and gun situations.

    What’s next from Canon?

    not many. for the reason I have stated above. 5DS/R is a specialist camera, same as the high res R. good for studio, landscapes, city scapes, fashion, products.. not great for events, PJ and any sort of run and gun photography.

    At rumored 80Mb+ sensor resolution, this body will require a helluvalot of image stabilisation and is DLA-ed already at F6.3. not sure 7-8FPS speed is a requirement for a tripod mounted camera and nor is a high ISO capabilities.

    EOS R metering all over the place

    yeah, AE-LOCK with the centre AF point and then re-compose.. spot metering mode. other options: take metering with the centre AF point over the subject's face or wedding dress if that was important, then switch to M mode and use ISO, T and F values. alternatively, continue shooting in the...
