If I was Canon, I would advertise it as "the first MILC in the world to have an infinite shutter life"Global electronic shutter? No need for mechanical shutter.
If global shutters are the way of the future, I'll definitely miss the sound a mechanical one makes. I'd probably not buy a camera with global shutter for that reason alone. The sound and very slight vibration of a mechanical shutter are so satisfying to me, and are probably placebos for making me want to shoot more and get better shots.Global electronic shutter? No need for mechanical shutter.
Always loved the eye focus control in my EOS 3 film bodies but doubt you will see it in R1 dody. Never have understood why no bodies since the EOS 3 have had this great feature, employable when wanted.How can focus better than R5 and R6? It will focus even before you push the button? If focus where you point your eye in the evf? Lol
I suspect Canon will pack new tech into the LP-E19 form factor, but I honestly would have no issues if Canon went back to the longer form factor of earlier 1D batteries:Second half of 2021 will probably be after the Tokyo Olympic games, then.
I imagine this thing will have a large battery to power everything.
