Initial Impressions of the Canon EOS R

This is not the newest Canon mirrorless body- it's the first full-frame body this company has released (the EOS RP is the newer model). I have researched both of these cameras to determine which is right for me. After a lot of consideration (I tend to do that), I made the decision that the R is worth the extra $1000 compared to the RP for the following reasons:

  • Longer battery life

  • Better 4K video (although still heavily cropped)

  • Better sensor (similar to the 5D4)

I will have more to say on this camera in due course, but I have produced a video of the unboxing and my initial thoughts on this camera, which can be seen here:

I am sure there will be a few bumps on this journey, and there will be stuff that I'm not entirely happy with, and I will be sure to put that in a future video.

I hope you enjoy this video, and remember, the perfect camera is the one that is right for you. Don't rely too heavily on the specs, but figure out for yourself what you want to have for your camera.

Happy shooting, and I'll see you soon.
