This Canon EOS R Review Claims It Is A Very Good Video Camera

This Canon EOS R Review Claims It Is A Very Good Video Camera
More lenses coming for the Canon EOS R in 2019

The Canon EOS R got some bad press when it comes to video performance. Some people and sites helped a lot to this bad press.

The review posted by Imaging Resource’s Jaron Schneider does not follow the trend. On the contrary, He says the Canon EOS R is indeed a very good camera for video work. Jaron Schneider is a commercial filmmaker, so I guess he knows what he is saying.

In the conclusion he writes:

The EOS R is not the perfect camera for every situation, but it does have its place. Personally, I love it for my smaller jobs because it fits into a bag (several of them could fit in the same space a C300 would take up) and the quality of the footage is wonderful. Sure, it has problems but, when used specifically and with an understanding of its limitations, there is a lot to like about it. It’s cheaper than the 5D IV, which I actually liked using for video (you can read about that here), and as mentioned the EOS R better in every way than the 5D IV for video production.

[…] it’s not going to change the industry in any meaningful way. It’s just not that kind of a product. But it is a far, far cry from being a “bad” camera. The Canon EOS R is a very good camera with a lot of advantages that should not be overlooked. It’s not for everyone, and that’s OK. It works well for me and for those who shoot like I do.
