I was checking out an EOS R yesterday at a camera store and I didn't have a lot of time. I was wondering is the circle in the centre of the EVF always there or is there someway to turn it off. I found it very distracting.

I didn't notice until I got home and looked at the photos on my computer that it was set to a low res jpeg (6MB), but the pictures where crystal clear! Quite impressed!



And yes the I enjoy the sharpness and clarity of the EOS R as well …

I'm terrible for not being level, so I need the level and the grid lines. I do use the histogram and meter continuously. I use the Fn button next to the main wheel to change ISO right in the EVF without moving the camera from the target… its very fast this way.. Fn button... roll wheel… shoot… Aperture is under your thumb plus shutter under your index finger… what could be easier…

Thumb and index finger run the entire camera. Af point is moved on screen ( top right ) as bottom right would be a hand big enough to sit in  :p

So the main wheel in its static state rolls to adjust shutter and if you press the Fn button it then switches to adjusting the ISO? I was using the control ring on the adapter in the store to adjust the ISO and I found it a little awkward, but I could get used to it. I was also using the bottom right corner for AF point and it was a bit of reach!lol Next time I'm in the big city I'll have to give it another whirl. The quality of the images are addictive to say the least! I've been getting a lot of slightly soft images of my present bodies, not bad but just a smidge. I haven't been at this photography thing very long, just over a year, it was starting to make me question my shooting skills and I was trying to use a tripod more and more but I was getting the similar results. So these results where welcome to my state of mind!!

Yes exactly… The control ring is harder to use the bigger the lens I found. Using the R... I don't miss the roller coaster AF or the Dsl phase detect.

At least this is how I do it… I'm sure there are many ways to setup your R… every button and dial is programable to do your bidding..

I tend to shoot critters with fur..

People thought I was nuts thinking an R could get it done…  :p:oops:

I use the level and grid lines too, and when on a tripod, toggle them off for precise composition. Wish there was a 4X5 grid. I also use your method for ISO. Entire right side for AF point selection.

Aperture is always on the front dial and shutter speed on the rear. The direction is always set to go right to increase exposure. So to move the histogram to the right you turn the dials to the right. Makes perfect sense to me.

The control ring is for EC on the rare occasion I use Av or Tv. The MFn bar is disabled except for playback. Wish it didn't wake up the camera. * is for DoF preview.

Yes I'm not using the bar either..set to off at the moment.. When RF lens is mounted the ring is also EC.. I love that we can decide how things layout..

I bit the bullet and purchased an R today, from my previous post about a “pro” body I was mainly meaning that I didn’t want to buy the R and next month they realeased a mark II with a bunch of new features. This body is well built and I don’t see any flaws other than one card slot but knock on wood I’ve never had a card failure so I’m not too worried about that. My hopes are that they add the eye focus in servo mode and the ability to grab the eye further away than a few feet.
On a side note I purchased it from Best Buy where they matched Office Depot’s price of $2070 and they still gave me the lens adapter for free with the body.

Anyone using a Sigma Contemporary 150-600mm on the "R"?

I borrowed one from a friend to test it. I can’t find the photos in Lr mobile, but I only too a few to test it so nothing really worth posting.

How did it perform? Where you happy with the clarity?

It wasn’t bad, but I was handheld, so a lot of blurred photos. The ones that came out at 600mm were good.

Green = in focus while in single shot
Blue = in focus while in servo
Red = nothing is in focus

Thanks! It makes sense now.
