It’s still a beginners camera. It’s supposed to be kept simple. What are you saving size wise over an 80d or 7d series? An inch or so!?Is it aimed at the absolute beginner end of the market, or the people who want the smallest size possible? I would have figured that beginners gravitated towards the T7i.
Coincidentally, HK was where I first saw an EOS R in the wild. Not in Disney though; it was on the promenade.I have nothing to complain about this body except the 9pt AF. It's properly spec'ed & sized aside from that. I saw more SL1/100Ds & SL2/200Ds in HK Disneyland this past weekend than Sony & Fuji mirrorless bodies combined...
i 4got 4fun.Yeah, it's him. He's trying real hard to cover it, but it's him. AVTVMFULLSTOPMIRAGE4FUNPROUTPROUT. The whole RF lens lineup (big and heavy), the fact that new DSLRs are being released, everybody not dropping everything and going mirrorless has him spinning in the wind right now. He don't know how to act.
I will reveal you a secret. There are many beginners who don't care about online reviews, or the shop seller. Especially those who comes from an visual arts background, and don't care at all about spec lists (unlike many from a tech background). Especially if they attend courses, they'll ask the teacher what camera they should buy within a given price bracket - and most good teacher won't ask them to overspend for features they're not going to use.it'll be because the online review site or the Best Buy tech guy told them about it.
Why should I take a photo at 8 megapixel when I can take it at 24? 4K is a video feature. Beginners not interested in video features wont' care at all what it is. You missed my emphasis on a photocamera. Sure, people looking for something just to record memories could be interested in video features as well. There's today a bigger chance they will be using their phones. On the other hand you have beginners that are truly interested in photography as a creative medium, not just in snapshots of their lives - and video is a totally different medium for them.Actually many beginners are interested in 4K,
I sold today my last EFS lens.Canon is still making EF and EF-S lenses, which they still need to SELL...
Why would beginners care about saving such a small amount of space? That space can absolutely matter when you're packing for overseas.It’s still a beginners camera. It’s supposed to be kept simple. What are you saving size wise over an 80d or 7d series? An inch or so!?
I’m not disagreeing with that. I’m saying it doesn’t need 27+ focus points... If I required more performance than this cameras focus system is able to provide then I’ll likely be using a more expensive, bigger, heavier lens and in that case, saving an inch wouldn’t be my priority.Why would beginners care about saving such a small amount of space?
