Discussion and images from Canon's first enthusiast APS-C "R" body.

Being apparently the first POTN user to actually receive one, I'm putting my stake in the ground and starting the official thread. Woo-hoo!

Congrats - be poised to receive the tradition 'low light' shot requests, high ISO, Raw image downloads, and unreasonable testing procedures like its the only thing you should make time for lol. Enjoy and get out and shoot.

What bodies are you coming from?
My request lol is let me know how a previous body felt and how does the R7 compare.

And - how is the EVF?

Thanks!

I called my large local camera store to see if they are going to rent them they said no at first as they specialize in FF but then did say they rent the 90D and then called me back and said they will be getting one in on the 23rd (?) and to call then and that I am the only one who has asked about rental.

Thanks. Unfortunately I won't be able to really spend much quality time with it before the weekend, and by that time I'll be just one of many owners here, and not a particularly knowledgeable one at that. This is simply my accidental 15 minutes. :-)

I'm coming from a 7DII, although for the past year I've also been using a Sony a6400 with an adapter. This is my first R body and I'm not even familiar with the M6II, so there are a lot of unfamiliar modes I need to learn that I've never used like flexible priority and RAW burst mode.

Illustrating that point, and to your EVF question, when I was looking through it last night, the EVF seemed fine inside my house, but occasionally it would suddenly get dark and the frame rate dropped noticeably. Eventually I realized that was the automatic power saving kicking in when I didn't push any buttons for 10 seconds! I think there's a menu setting to change the time on that.

For the feel comparison, it's a lot lighter than the 7DII, that's for sure! The grip is a good size and I don't anticipate any difficulty holding it with the adapted Sigma 100-400|C. I usually don't use neck straps, but I like the Peak Design Clutch hand strap and I find that helps a lot. I never had a problem holding that lens on the Sony with it, and its grip is much less deep.

I am a little bit concerned about the rear dial/joystick combo only because I have long thumbs and it might be an awkward bend trying to get onto them. The reviewers I've seen have said they were able to quickly get used to that so I'm hopeful.

Hope that helps!

Yes thank-you. I find my 7D2 a little big - my 70D was a good fit, and I've held the R5 2 times and seems a very good fit.

I forgot that users want to see 'high ISO' shots, which I meant to say instead of low light lol.

I was using my 7DII today and for me it is the perfect size, all fingers on the grip, unlike my 90D where the pinky wiggles below the grip

If I post pics tonight, is POTN ready to recognize BOTH the R7 and RF-S 18-150 from the metadata?
?;-)a

Edit: I haven’t looked to see if they’re in the gear browser yet.

Fortunately the 90D can accomodate a battery grip for you...

Have you held the R5?

I use the battery grip on the 90D all the time, it makes a huge difference.

I have never held a R5 but went to Hunt's Photo in Providence RI yesterday to check out the EVF and grip on the R6, pinky below...
The EVF will take a bit of getting used to, with a burst seemed to be a series of quick photos

Oh come on, there’s always time to shoot something in and around the house. You mentioned a cat somewhere I think. Nothing better than a cat for your first images with a new camera. Except maybe a duck, but that old POTN tradition seems to have been forgotten. So shoot the cat. Or a coffee pot or a flower. Anything!

Please?
