Canon EOS R Review: A Photographer’s View

Luke Gardner - 3 years ago

And here it is! Part 1 of the PhotoBite hands-on review of Canon’s new full-frame mirrorless camera, the Canon EOS R. Produced from the photographer’s perspective, part 1 looks at the camera’s functions and we give our view on the camera’s strong points and where it could be improved.

The Canon EOS R has landed as the brand’s first serious full-frame mirrorless camera system and is the most exciting product to come from the Canon stable in recent memory. A product of Canon’s 2.2 billion investment in R&D each year, a whopping 8 per cent of the company’s annual turnover, the EOS R has been presented by Canon as an addition to the tried and tested cameras from the EOS range.

Offering users an impressive set of functions and features, including the world’s fastest auto-focus, [.5 seconds], touch + drag AF, silent shooting, 4K video, [the best from Cinema EOS], USB C Connection, [for direct charging] a range of mount adaptors, a £250K UK ad campaign, and a national promotional roadshow, it’s clearly a significant launch for the brand. Since our first hands-on film, showing the basic functions of the EOS R, we’ve picked up another to bring you this, our real world review for photographers.

Be sure to watch part 2 of this video, where our video expert, Josh Lewis, walks through the Canon EOS R from a film maker’s perspective.
