1 Hour with the Canon EOS R System
Adorama asked me if I would like to test out Canon's new mirrorless EOS R System.
uhhh duh! Hells yeah.
I was able to do a quick 1 hr test shoot with the lovely Maria as my subject and create some last minute portrait and lifestyle images. Since the RAW images are not compatible with Adobe Lightroom yet, I had to use the JPG images and I was very satisfied with the results.
Because I really didn't have a lot of time to work with the camera to it's full potential, I just wanted to concentrate locating the right functions to begin shooting. I own a 5DM III and IV, so the learning curve didn't take much of my time. I was very happy with the ergonomic feel, the grip was extremely comfortable and button accessibilities were convenient. Two lenses were used during this shoot, RF 28-70mm f/2 and RF 50mm f/1.2 (series of images provided below from each lens). Both lenses are reasonably large compared to others but they never felt heavy while using them. The LCD screen and electronic viewfinder were extremely pleasing to my eye. Didn't have a huge problem with the autofocusing but definitely wish I had more time to play with the autofocusing options. Overall, for my type of photography work, it got the job done. This is not a full review and my intentions here is not to compare other camera systems. I simply wanted to see if this camera would work right for me and it did thus far. Thanks Adorama and Canon again.
