Canon EOS R Field Tested At An Indian Wedding

Canon EOS R Field Tested At An Indian Wedding
The Canon EOS R. High resolution model coming in 2019?

Cinema5D’s Johnnie Behiri made a somewhat different review of the Canon EOS R. He took it to an Indian Wedding and made a mini documentary. More field tested than this might be impossible.

Here is what he liked in the EOS R:

  • Good lowlight quality. Up to ISO 6400 with no issues. Above it, noticeable noise but still usable.
  • Focus peaking
  • Swivelled LCD screen
  • Shutter dust protector – Will automatically be engaged when the camera switches off
  • Touch and Drag AF (LCD), makes it easy to change focus between given points
  • Dual Pixel autofocus works well.
  • Dual Pixel Focus Guide for an easy manual focusing
  • High Data rate (Up to 480Mbps, All Intra recording)
  • Excellent battery life
  • No signs of overheating
  • Manual audio adjustment and monitoring
  • 4K,10Bit, 4:2:2 over HDMI to an external recording device
  • Canon Log included (2 variations)
  • World camera (24, 25, 30p in 4K)

And what he didn’t like so much:

  • Full Frame camera which unfortunately records 4K video in 1.7x cropped mode
  • Severe rolling shutter effect
  • No 4K DCI recording
  • No internal optical stabilisation system
  • Take in account that when using the strongest available digital stabilisation option, picture quality will suffer and will become softer
  • No Zebra
  • No “Joystick” for smooth and easy focus placement
  • Focus magnifying won’t work while recoding
  • 8Bit internal recording
  • High Frame Rate in 720p quality only (120fps)
  • No autofocus when shooting in High Frame Rate
  • 60p is restricted to Full HD only
  • The new programable slide touch pad needs to be activated first before operating. Then (in case of assigning it to sound levels) changes can be made by tapping only and not sliding
  • If you have small hands, holding the camera becomes uncomfortable after a while

Johnnie Behiri’s review comes with test charts and some sample photos.
