Clive’s favourite EOS R fea­tures

Amateur Photographer - - Advertisement Feature -

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.
