Hands-on with the Canon EOS R: A Film Maker’s Review

Josh Lewis - 10 months ago

Following on from our hands-on photographer’s view of the Canon EOS R in part 1, as promised, here’s part 2 of the PhotoBite hands-on review of Canon’s new full-frame mirrorless camera system produced from the videographer’s perspective.

The Canon EOS R is the brand’s first serious full-frame mirrorless camera.  True to their name, Canon have shot into the full frame mirrorless market without holding much back. Taking many features from Canon 5D Mark IV, they have worked hard to show you can enjoy DSLR-like features in a mirrorless system.

Offering users an impressive set of functions and features, including Canon’s own Dual Autofocus, touch + drag AF, silent shooting, 4K video at a 1.7x crop, USB C Connection, [for direct charging] and a range of mount adaptors that allow users to link their EF lenses to Canon’s new RF system. 

Watch part 2 here, where our video expert, Josh Lewis, walks through the Canon EOS R from a film maker’s perspective.
