He touches on one of the biggest issues a lot of the internet world seems to have with the camera, and that’s the nearly 1.7x crop when shooting 4K. However, when compared to the Super35 sensor of the Cinema EOS C200, the crop isn’t all that different.
Using a 24mm lens, the FOV of the two cameras are pretty close to one another.
- Canon Cinema EOS C200 w/24mm lens: 36mm
- Canon EOS R w/24mm lens: 41mm
Armando does stress this is only his opinion, and obviously, other shooters may feel differently.
He’s also quite impressed about how closely the footage between the Cinema EOS C200 and EOS R match up. He only seems to have to tweak saturation and contrast slightly to match the EOS R footage to the output from the C200.
