Canon EOS R With APS-C Rumor Surfaces Yet Again (now it’s 2021)

Canon Eos R With Aps-c

Some rumor are surprisingly smart when it comes to the perfect timing. The long running and now-and-then surfacing rumor about a Canon EOS R with APS-C sensor seems to belong to this category.

Just a few days after someone suggested Canon might kill the EOS M lineup, someone else suggests that Canon will release an EOS R model with crop sensor.

We always had a hard time to buy this rumor, independently of the source. The Canon EOS M lineup is well established, has a fond user base, and is a best seller with the EOS M50. So why the hell should Canon kill the EOS M lineup? And why should they come up with an EOS R camera with APS-C sensor? Wouldn’t even further fragment their offering?

However, the EOS R with with a crop sensor gets shifted fro year to year. It’s now rumored for 2021 but I bet in 8 or 10 months it will be rumored for 2022. I migth be wrong but I call the EOS-R-with-APS-C nothing but a fantasy (or bs, your mileage may vary). If someone has a compelling argument for such a camera, I’m listening.

Five Reasons To Prefer Full Frame Over APS-C and Micro 4/3

Micro 4/3

A video about the never ending dispute on what’s better among sensor size and format. Do you prefer full frame over APS-C and Micro 4/3?

In the video below Manny Ortiz lists five reasons that make him prefer full frame cameras over APS-C and Micro 4/3. Personally I’m a big fan of APS-C sensors and don’t see any full frame advantage for at least 90% of the pictures I take. I take pics mainly on travel and abroad and highly value every bit of weight I can avoid. For me APS-C, especially with Canon’s recent sensors, is the way to go. The needs of other photographers might be different, and if you shoot a lot in low light or at night then a full frame sensor is likely the better way to go.

Stay safe.

Does Sensor Size Matter And Can You Tell The Difference? (sensor size comparison)

Sensor Size

Does sensor size matter that much and can you even tell the difference?. A sensor size comparison from medium format to Micro 4/3 Sensors.

The people at The Slanted Lens wants to know and compares four sensor sizes:

We compare 4 sensor sizes to see how they compare in print image quality: Hasselblad X1D II 50C, Sony a7R IV, Sony a6600 and Panasonic GH5. See how much difference there is in the Medium, Full-frame, APS-C and Micro 4/3 Sensors.
