Clive’s favourite EOS R features
The touchscreen is very clever and really intuitive, and being able to touch the screen and take a picture is great. I could trust the camera to do that even though I was shooting in relatively low light, and for the most part, it nails the focus very well.
It’s small and neat, which makes it an advantage for location shoots. Despite its small form factor, it is really well made and robust. It’s got the waterproof capabilities of the EOS 5D Mark III, and although it’s a prosumer camera, it still feels like a pro camera.
With the EF- EOS adapter, we’re now seeing improvements in the existing EF lenses. For example, I saw an improvement using the EF 50mm f/1.2 with the EOS R.
For photographers who are shooting in dual pixel raw and using Canon’s DPP (Digital Photo Professional) workflow, the latest technology provides additional benefits for high dynamic range and sharpening. This camera is delivering nearly 200MB 16-bit TIFF files.
The battery life exceeds all expectations for me. I got a minimum of 1,000 frames from one battery charge – probably as many as 1,300 frames per battery.
