I just received my RF 24-70 in the mail, first image I took with it out of the box. Man this is a sharp lens...

We're colder than Manitoba, DP? Huh! There's a first time for everything!

We got it. -32 Celsius. With the wind it feels like -43.

I found this incredibly useful, even though I was pretty happy with the touchbar the way I have it set up. After a couple of tweaks from this video, it has really made me like the touchbar for a change.

You may already know all of this. I didn't. Worth watching, IMHO.


Good video. I set the bar up for ISO pretty much right away and since it was so sensitive I set up the lock button for it. I found the bar off/on settings finicky using the bar as described in the video. I may try a few things from that video.

Looks like this may be a good solution. I'll try a couple settings when I get home...Thanks!

So, probably a long shot question but, has anyone modified this thing for astrophotography? By this I mean removed the hot mirror for better red (h-alpha) sensitivity?

Google search has been unimpressive. I know the Ra exists, but I already have the R...

I found a place that would sell me an already modified R for nearly the same price as the Ra.

But so far I haven't been able to locate instructions to attempt it myself, or a service to have it done.

Since I live with auto IS and the configurations under the covers that control it (like shutter speed range, ISO range etc), I actually set up the touch bar for stills for IQ needs. RGB histogram on one end, Eye AF on the other and the slider moves me between full view, 5x and 10x so I can very quickly see the IQ of an image right before capture.

I love the touch bar and this makes it better. Those who do not get it are not worthy of this camera.. lmao

I haven't jumped into buying one yet as I have two young kids and I still think the camera is too expensive in the UK.

Amen to that my friend. I refuse to pay the extortionate UK price for this camera when its over 50% more than the US price. I hope to get the EOS R this summer but I'll be buying a grey import from somewhere like panamoz.com where the camera is £770 cheaper than official UK prices.

The eye AF is so solid on the 1.4.0+ firmware that I've almost become complacent and stopped checking to make sure it's grabbed the eye. So refreshing! This was captured at 200mm f2.8 and out of 13 variations/captures, ranging from tight headshots to full-length portraits, all of them were perfectly in focus.

So I know nothing of Astro, do you need a filter? Or do you need to remove something from the front of the existing sensor?
If you just need a filter,. you could use the drop in EF adpater...

Someone at LifePixel did an EOS R infrared conversion, they might be able to help you out.

Have to remove the hot mirror off the sensor, it requires almost a complete teardown. I'm almost wondering if I should just go for the Ra because one goof up and it's a brick.

In the meanwhile, I can use the standard R but stock it's not very sensitive to emission nebula. The whole idea is to remove the ir hot mirror from the sensor and place a drop in hydrogen alpha filter in front which will really cut light pollution.

I really kind of goofed with my camera purchases this past year lol but I didn't know the astro bug was going to bite again and didn't know the Ra was going to be possible. Also didn't realize how I don't seem to meld with the R (I've always felt as if the camera was better suited on a tripod and or studio).

If I were you I'd get the Ra. It also has 30x live view zoom (instead of the standard 10x) for focussing. I'm considering one eventually.

Seriously considering it. Was thinking about getting a used t5i and try to mod it myself but, while I think I'll be able to do so, not so sure about getting it back together without tape and rubber bands and in working order lol. :eek: Even more so with the stock R as I've been unable to find instructions.

At least the Ra has Canon's blessings... And my birthday is coming up ;-)a

Lucky you! Be sure and post some photos when you get it. I would like to get it myself but am also considering getting my old 100D modified or even the 6D. It makes the world (:lol:)) of difference. I think there are couple of places here in the UK that do the mods and are much cheaper than buying a new camera. Everything is a compromise between price, performance, filters, ease of use, etc. I need a tippy screen as much as anything!
