I shot this quickie to show blackout free at 20fps on the X-T3 with electronic. It also can do this at 30fps with a crop into 16mpx. With mechanical shutter it’s max is 11fps and still blackout free. I wonder if Canon will fix/update a few things with a firmware update, if they released the R in 2015/6 I’d probably still be shooting Canon.

On page 149 of the user manual there is an option for Highs Speed Display. Fairly limited use and only available with RF lenses but it might be worth looking into for the blackout issue. I never noticed this when I had the camera.

Temperature was 12F. Camera worked fine but photographer's fingers didn't last 5 minutes:oops:

Beautiful shots.

So, has your hunt for warm camera gloves has started? I'm trying two options: thin gloves with a snug fit to operate the camera or big, bulky but loose fitting gloves that will fall off with the flick of a wrist.

The best option depends on the temperature you are accustomed to.

When was the last time canon did a firmware update to ADD features? People with a 70D are STILL waiting for a firmware update to fix the bounce flash problem that plagues nearly every 70D made, but to be fair its only been 5 1/2 years :)

They dont consider the non "no blackout" to be a problem.

I totally agree If they would have released the R then, maybe by now they would have one now that would have a little better speed and eye af that would be closer to sony. Just because they would have had more time to work on it. I too might have stayed with canon as well.

2013 as far as I know.
5D3:
1/ uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2 video output with time code over the HDMI port.
2/ AF at f8: cross-type autofocus when working with a maximum aperture of F8, as is possible in the EOS-1D X

Most significant 2012.
1DX:
1/ AF at f8
2/ Improvement of AF accuracy in low-light with AI Servo
3/ Expanded AF parameters
4/ Increased customisable options
5/ Improvement in exposure control

AF at f8 was available on previous bodies so that was more of a catch up.
The others were definitely worthwhile additions and the ability to have AF points light up in red was, according to Canon, a response to user feedback.

5D2 had a hardware update - lockable mode dial.

Are the naysayers and people that do not own, nor ever intend to purchase a particular camera, so prevalent in other threads dedicated to a particular model's owners? Threads that concern them none whatsoever?

What part of this thread title is so unclear to you?

Canon EOS R owners unite! Post photos and discuss.

I'm all for people asking questions of owners before they buy. I was one of those once in this thread also, but these posts go far beyond that. These are people complaining just for complaining's sake when they have no intention whatsoever to ever own this camera.

Go start your own thread and you can freely discuss why you hate what you've never owned and your YouTube video experiences there.

Amen. Why does this thread keep getting derailed? Sorry if I've contributed - I'll practice ignoring the trolls.

I'm all in on RF. Going to have to sell my 24-70 II because I just ordered the 28-70 f2. I could stomach the CPW price.

I'm sorry you had such a life-altering experience trying it. Not liking it. Returning it. And getting your money back. I can certainly appreciate the trauma of it all, and I guess it affects each of us differently.

One of the things Canon pitched at launch was that the firmware in the R Series would be different than all models that had preceded it. Specifically, they said that not only would there be bug fixes, but for the first time in Canon's history, new features would be a prominent part of FW updates going forward in the R series. Like you, I have a long lineage of history that says differently, but I Will take them at face value until they prove differently. I expect this family to be different, and Canon has vowed to use it as a turning point. I'm willing to give them the benefit of a doubt, until they have proven they lied. We haven't even seen the first one for the R yet, and while that frustrates many of us, I'm hoping there's a good reason for it and that it will be major and feature rich.
