    An EF & RF mount hybrid mirrorless camera in the works [CR2]

    mmm , I thought maybe the adapter could have a build in mirror, but it looks kinda short to accommodate a mirror, unless its build into the body and only releases with the special adapter. The body would then be a mirrorless body with a hybrid viewfinder? Personally I think a R type body with...

    The first supertelephoto for the RF mount to be an RF 500mm f/4L IS [CR1]

    My primary goal is to keep CR an accurate place, and of course to keep Jack coming here for the humor. If you’re looking for friends, I hear you can find some on Facebook. I actually like Neuros precise and logical reasoning even though I can find him a bit 'prickly' at times...but generally I...

    Patent: Canon RF 17-35mm f/4-5.6

    'It would sure be ‘stupid Canon’ if the design teams for M and R didn’t talk to one another. but having worked for large, R&D based companies (in Pharma, not tech), I will say that that sort of communication failure wouldn’t surprise me. ' Perhaps also at the time Canon felt that there was no...

    Street Portraits in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho

    I have had the Eos R for a couple of months since its release and have done mostly commercial work with it and i couldn't wait to try it out for my personal work. In December I went to Lesotho for a week and stayed in a little village called Malealea...all these street portraits were made there...

    The Canon EOS M50 and Canon EOS R continued to sell well in December

    Nice shot of the Sagrada...I was there in 2003 just before the invasion of Irak? I think...my wife and I have always said that we would like to go back when its completed or nearly so...if I'm still alive by then of course.... If you like the M50 you will love the R...I have the M6 and tried to...

    Lexar announces the world’s first 1TB SD card

    I just got mself a 128 g card, takes about 4000 CRaw images on the R. this is my biggest card ever...I still also use a couple of 32 g cards. On a busy European holiday I filled one 32 G card per day...touch wood I've never had a card fail on me...but I can imagine two 1TB cards in a dual slot...

    Lower end EOS R body to omit the touch bar

    Yes agreed, life is a compromise! I've been lucky - or according to some, unlucky to have been mostly Canon my whole photography life....

    Lower end EOS R body to omit the touch bar

    I guess I fall into this category...I occasionally read with interest some other camera brand reviews...but the thing is that I've never felt that what I am getting out of my Canon is so bad that I just have to change, on the contrary I am generally impressed and have been more than satisfied...

    A1 print on the Eos R looks good!

    Agreed! I actually measured my comfortable closest viewing distance with this print and it was about 60cm ...but I'm old and wear multi focals. I do find that when my daughters show me something on their cell phones that I have to push the phone further away! Its not that I actually want to...

    Lower end EOS R body to omit the touch bar

    So presumably most Canon users that feel that these things where Canon is lacking is most critical for their photography would have changed over to Sony or Nikon by now? Unless of course I suppose that they are a bit like me akin to an ostrich with its head buried in the sand oblivious to how...

    Lower end EOS R body to omit the touch bar

    What does bother me though is the size of the body and grip. It is too small for my taste... For me the R has a much nicer grip than the 6D and 6D2. The R has a deeper grip because of the thinner body I presume, when put side by side the R is surprisingly almost the same size as the 6D2, just...

    Lower end EOS R body to omit the touch bar

    '...the Eos R is expensive compared to a 6DII' Personally I think the R is way more camera than the 6D2...the Af imo is much more accurate and works with all my lenses and some that would only work with the centre AF point on the 6D2 and here I'm talking about the Tamron 35m F1.8 and the 100mm...

    A1 print on the Eos R looks good!

    The image looks a lot more contrasty and saturated on the screen than the print, but nevertheless its quite nice to know that for my type of photography large prints are a no brainer ..of course we all have our standards but without really putting in a lot of effort I am pleasantly pleased by...

    A1 print on the Eos R looks good!

    I am busy processing my images from my December holiday in the mountain kingdom of Lesotho and I thought I would see how large I can print with my new R. Well I'm quite impressed with the A1 print of the image enclosed. There are no digital artifacts nor grain visible. I have often dreamed of...

    Lower end EOS R body to omit the touch bar

    'What can they possible do to make an even lower end EOS R? They released the pretty much best lenses of their entire lineup and only a mirrorless 6d to use them... and now they release an even worse mirrorless camera? It is REALY time for a professional EOS R, not another toy... what else are...

    Has anybody tried a TS-E on the RF mount yet?

    I also forgot to mention that now everything thats on the lcd screen of the R is of course also in the viewfinder. Viewfinder focussing on the 6D and 6D2 was much more problematic....mirror less is made for MF lenses!

    Has anybody tried a TS-E on the RF mount yet?

    Hi, I'm a newish R user. Before I had the 6D then got the 6D2 just before the R release- I reacted on the CR article where it was mentioned that we should not expect a FF mirror less soon, and of course within days it was announced! I have the 24TS mk2 that I use for architecture and...

    M6 carrying options / suggestions

    Im a very lucky man as my wife just bought me early xmas presents, a M6 and a billingham hadley digital! the hadley is quite a smart little bag and I can fit my EosM6, 50mmm f1.8, 80mm f1.8 and adapter, 18-55mm lens, EVF, spare batteries, tripod plate, table tripod, and small canon flash 90ex...

    M6 problem or is it me?

    Same problem here. Its the rear iso dial that moves easily. I moved my iso settings to the button near the shutter release. I use the old iso dial for drive settings. My thinking being that if I inadvertently move the motor drive settings it wont affect exposure etc. you will however be able...

    TDP: EOS 6D Mark II Image Quality and analysis

    ( I didnt say AF was a huge constraint, the difference in af is very small you just dont have the case selection but you can make your own and attach it to a custom mode. The actual spread is smaller but then the MKIII isnt exactly large either... you get maybe an extra 10% spread on the...
