Mattias Burling posted a neat video where he reviews the Kipon Baveyes MF Focal Reducer on a Canon EOS R. With the Kipon Baveyes MF Focal Reducer reduces the crop factor from x1 to x0.7: the EOS R becomes a medium format camera. Watch the review to learn more. Some sample pictures can be seen on Mattias’ Instagram.
[…] there is much more to like about the camera than I list in this video. For example in camera video color, highlight roll off, audio, etc, etc. Another negative is that its a bit too feature rich, capable and easy to use for it to challenge […] creatively on the streets. For recreational shooting I prefer something more limiting.
And I know there will be 4K crusaders commenting on me liking HD. […] I started shooting 4K Raw video before most you even left 720p. So I know all about it. The fact is that I have use had the HD from the EOS-R projected together with FS7 4K on huge screen and no one notices any difference. Law of diminishing return and the right tool for the job.
