    EOS R Hot Pixel experience?

    So I got my EOS R recently and have completely fell in love with the feel and abilities of this camera. Unfortunately there were a cluster of hot pixels on the sensor that appear in the middle of the EVF. They were stuck red, in addition to a stuck white one in the bottom left. I tried the...

    EOS RP vs R vs M50 vs 1DX mk2

    Hi, new guy here. I got curious to see side by side the specs of these great cameras. The recent 3 mirrorless, and the king. To me it is amazing how the king stands up, after so much time. It gives me hope about the "lasting" of the gear. Here is the chart, in a dropbox PDF...

    AF to -6ev, but what about with an F4 lens Canon?

    I love the spec of Canon's new EOS-R focusing down to -6ev when using their new RF 50mm f1.2 lens. BUT i can't find any information on what it can achieve using a more normal F4 lens - such as the 'kit' 24-105 F4 it might be supplied with? Is it actually better than my rated -3ev EOS 6D camera...

    85mm: Which one to buy used now to hold value for resale when RF comes out?

    I'm a new EOS R owner and loving the camera so far. I'm finding myself craving an 85mm lens for it already and since I'm new to Canon, I don't have a lens portfolio to choose from. I have the Canon adapter so I can use EF lenses no problem, but I don't want to do so long-term knowing there's...

    Just got an email from B&H about my backorder status

    I preordered on September 21. The email just said: “The following is still out of stock.” Then it shows the EOS R kit and grip that I ordered. Is this email irrelevant? Or does it mean that I’m not going to get mine shipped during the first wave of shipments?

    Design of the EOS-R. An interview with product development manager

    I used Google translate which seemed OK: https://news.mynavi.jp/article/20180910-690162/ Some interesting points that I found: The number of pixels itself is the same as EOS 5D Mark IV, but the sensor itself is newly developed...It is raising ISO sensitivity more than EOS 5D Mark IV. Digic 8...
