What are the biggest advantages you have found in EOS R System cameras compared to full-frame DSLRs such as the EOS 5D Mark IV?
"The low-light performance of the EOS R5
, EOS R6
and EOS R
is phenomenal. They can see in the dark! That's thanks to the electronic viewfinder [EVF] and LCD screen, as well as low-light autofocus, which means you can keep shooting when the light has long gone.
"Also, the controls can be almost endlessly customised, which means you can shoot how you want, very quickly. The RF Lens Control Ring can be mapped to almost whatever you want, such as exposure compensation or ISO.
"Shooting with an EVF has been a revelation – you really get to appreciate 'What You See Is What You Get' when it comes to exposure and depth of field. There is certainly far less looking at the back of the camera to check focus and exposure. It makes shooting so much quicker, and you can stay really focused on your subject as nothing gets in the way.
"Because it's mirrorless, an EOS R System camera has a totally silent shutter mode, which will get you taking pictures in previously tricky situations.
"When you change the lens with the camera off, the EOS R5, EOS R6 and EOS R automatically close a shutter to protect the sensor. For shooting action where there is dust or snow, that's ideal."
