The EOS R isn’t short of features. Here we look at a few more things we haven’t yet touched upon
The battery life of the EOS R is rated at approximately 370 shots on a single charge. To extend this to over 700 shots you’ll need the Canon BG-E22 battery grip (£329), which has space for two LP-E6/LP-E6N batteries. It also supports a USB Type-C interface to charge the batteries in the grip without removing them. Dual Pixel Raw Used with Canon Digital Photo Professional (DPP) software, this allows users to fine-tune sharpness after the point of capture or tweak the bokeh for a pleasing result. Canon Log Canon Log enables the EOS R to produce similar movie footage to that shot by Cinema EOS cameras like the EOS C300 Mark II. The purpose of this tone curve is to produce video footage with extra-wide dynamic range and generous exposure latitude for easy colour grading in post. Battery compatibility The EOS R can be used with both LP-E6 and LP-E6N Li-ion batteries. Users should note that only the newer LP-E6N batteries can be charged in camera via USB Type-C. A charging icon shows on the top-plate LCD. Fv mode This new Flexible-priority AE mode is similar to Program AE mode. The difference is it allows you to take control of ISO, shutter speed, aperture and exposure compensation when required. The rear dial is used to toggle between these variables and the top dial adjusts the particular setting. Settings that are underlined indicate they’re controlled automatically by the camera.
