Didn't Canon say that although the R sensor had the same number of pixels as the EOS 5D Mark IV, it was indeed a new sensor?

Hi,

Just to say, Phase One cameras did do nice with a single card slot for many years. Do I think a dual cards are an advantage? Certainly so! But we did do without dual card slots for many years.

Best regards
Erik

Thanks for the article Kevin. As a long-time Canon user I am hoping they can come out with a high-res (50mp) mirrorless that has all your hits and misses turned to hits. Then they will have something I will consider. For the time being Sony A7RIII with Metabones for EF lenses and the two native E-Mount lenses (16-35mm G Series and 28-75mm Tamron) I own. The big allure of mirrorless is weight savings, but really for the SOny lenses that is not true. Canon EF to Sony E-Mount lenses are near the same in weight. A7RIII somewhat lighter than a Canon 5DSR. IMO, a Canon Mirrorless with EF Mount and all the technology hits gets my vote as something I would look for. In the meantime, I am happy with the Sony.

Kevin when you do further testing please also test 3rd party (Sigma etc) EF lenses with the adapter, especially autofocus. If the R can nail autofocus at 85mm/1.4 anywhere in the frame that will be a great thing for me.

Weight savings? Get low focal length primes at F4 or slower. The weight savings of mirrorless with fast and/or long lenses is a myth.

Tend to agree on the weight savings comment. Full frame anything = big and heavy. Especially if you want quality or fast glass. eg Sony GM.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks.

How would you rate the viewfinder compared to your Sony a7rIII?

Thank you.

1. Looking at the size of the camera, and especially the lenses, plus frame rate and 4K video, it seems that Canon is still paving a cow path, just a mirrorless cow path. Although some sites say that the larger size of the Nikon and Canon mirrorless mounts allow for physically larger future sensors.
Speaking of camera size, back in the film days my father preferred Nikon's larger size over the size of my Olympus OM cameras. So maybe Canon knows something I don't.

2. The lens adapters, especially the one with the filters, are a great idea. Hint to Metabones. But delivery in the spring leaves something to be desired. Too bad that idea can't be used at the back of native mount lenses.

3. I switched from Canon 7D to Sony A7RII because of IBIS. I also could use an adapter for my herd of EOS mount lenses. With a tilt/sift lens speed of auto focus doesn't matter. grin  But having focus peaking allows one to see the effect of tilt and shift.

Good video review Kevin, in fact no it wasn't just good, it was excellent..

The top takeaway feature of the 'R' to me is that the sensor automatically covers itself up when a lens is dismounted, this is a truly brilliant idea from Canon and will really take the reluctance and worry out of swapping lenses out in the field and hopefully all the other manufacturers will adopt this idea as quickly as possible, so Bravo Canon on that one..!

But as I use all manual setting all of the time, the rest of the bells and whistles, such as IBIS, focus tracking and video etc, etc, etc, does not interest me in the least, and on any camera Sony or otherwise - didn't Michael once advocate that camera manufactures should incorporate an advanced button on their cameras, so that once you press it, everything is then turned off and the camera drops straight into fully manual mode?

So for my type of landscape work, it all comes down to the quality of the sensor and the noise to signal ratio of the files, and from what I can ascertain so far about the 'R', is it ain't no Sony beater, in fact it is using old technology from around five years ago and that in today's camera sensor technology development cycle, is like a couple of generations ago.

I so wanted to want this camera, because I have been a Canon shooter for decades and I love 'em and how they work, but the files from the A7R2 are so sweet in comparison, that I could never dream of giving that up now. So unless they (Canon) come out with a sensor that is even sweeter and at least the same mpx as the Sony and Nikon, then I am sticking with my Sony sensor, even though the Sony Camera is a pain in the arse to use sometimes, because the files you can get out of it, are just so sweeeeeet.

I agree. It's not so much the weight savings as a potentially more compact tool. Although, if paired with the new lenses, maybe slightly shorter but the diameter of the lenses is still significant, even with the new optical designs. So, lenses with narrower maximum apertures are needed to keep the size/weight down, which is a possibility because of the ability to focus at very low light levels.

It's more interesting to look at the new (latest technology) lens designs, with new design parameters that produce a large exit pupil diameter.

Cheers,
Bart

Yes, and despite lots of rebuttals on this, this argument gets repeated and repeated. But this does not make this any more true. The weight savings in the camera body is marginal for a full set of lenses and a camera body. The way to save weight is not only to use slower glass but also go down in sensor size with lenses designed for this format. Basically Fuji and m43 cameras.

What I find astonishing is the lack of inventions in terms of software in the cameras and interconnectivity with smart phones. When you look at a smart phone and what you can get of different apps and especially Lightroom Mobile it is demonstrated what an open platform for app developpers can provide. Then it is amazing to see that none of the camera manufacturers have adopted a software platform like that. Let's assume that Canon had decided to use Android as the OS in the camera and WiFi and Bluetooth the camera could connect seamlessly with the phone to provide internet connectivity. In this case Adobe could enhance Lightroom Mobile so that you could shoot with the LM camera and develop in camera or in the smart phone and send pictures straight from shooting session. It could also be possible to let LM preview the look of an image before it is shot using e.g. profiles and presets. The possibilities are endless. Other App developpers could develop their shooting app. This would just require a fast computing platform on the camera and access to all features of the camera for App developpers. Canon could and should (f course) provide their own app for shooting. Most likely such an app would be hugely surpassed by App developpers. What would the iPhone have been if it had stayed without the App Store?

I agree that the software side should get more attention. Today software is as vital as hardware. The image quality of the mobile phones is for a large part due to the quality of the software.
When i have a look at Nikon- the software and wireless connectivity is years behind.
Putting android in a camera might not be so easy to do. It is Googles software, not free and not open for drastic changes that are required to adapt it to camera's.

I don't think Android would require changes to itself to run in a camera. It already runs in tons of cameras called smartphones. The camera already runs on an OS, just not Android. Btw. there already is a software addon to some Canon cameras https://www.magiclantern.fm, but what I'm advocating is a much wider software architecture that allows apps in the camera that not only controls it but also adds the infrastructure to share, upload, edit etc. and with the help pf a mobil device as well. It would be a quantum leap from where we are today.

Hans, The connectivity of mobile devices to cameras is a major feature every camera manufacturer knows needs to be done.  I have spoken to Leica, Sony, Fuji, and Canon about this.  Canon claims the R camera has good connectivity to mobile devices but I did not get a chance to try it out.  Based on conversations I have had as well as suggestions I have made is that the connectivity is seamless.  Right now to connect to any device is a major challenge in most cases and the connectivity, for the most part, is rather fragile, meaning you can lose the connection without notice.  Wouldn't it be cool if communication with devices was two way and required no intervention by the user?  The camera could pull GPS data from the phone and send images to the phone.

I think the connectivity to devices will be the next big things.  With so much online sharing going on wouldn't it be nice to shoot a photo see it on the device and then go to Instagram or Facebook while you are still at the location?

As far as OS in a camera I doubt you will see that.  I can say that the Light16 has an Android OS and it is painful to use.

Kevin, Thanks for the article.  Very informative. The really big deal for me (as one who shot with the Canon 1Ds series for years) is the use of the older sensor technology, which you mentioned in your article.  What are they thinking? The Sony sensor......or equivalent, runs circles around the Canon sensor. I think they will eventually get their feature set going in the right direction but the sensor must go through a revolutionary update for me to ever consider them again.  I do use some Canon glass with my Sony A7r ll.

Why is that? Regarding IBIS, Canons says lens IS can be better and it is true if you understand lens dynamics as a function of focal length. Regarding back-plane illumination... that is a design approach mostly to improve light sensitivity, which is not an issue on this camera and neither is impinging light ray angle.

Technology for technology sake makes no sense. Never did, except in the gadget world, that is.

Putting android in a camera might not be so easy to do. It is Googles software, not free and not open for drastic changes that are required to adapt it to camera's.

Several sources mentioned that Sony a7 cameras were in fact using Android as an OS, at least to run the applications that can be installed on MK I and II models (see here (https://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/59226/does-the-sony-a7-run-android-or-if-not-is-there-another-way-to-write-applicati)). Since these applications are no longer available on newer models, this might have changed lately.

Android has an open source implementation (AOSP) which would be suitable for such projects, though it lacks some closed source bits found on Google Play services typically found on phones.

Cheers,

Fabien

"So, letís not forget to put a lot of this technical stuff aside and go out and take some pictures.  Just about every camera out there is capable of making great images.  I have not had anyone but other photographers ask me what I shot an image with.  The camera is not going to make your photos better, only you can do that."

Wise words, we are not at war but technology has so much to offer that it is up to us to enjoy good photography!

I suspect all system is still based on Android but I highly doubt Sony allows third party to program anything to it, specailly after closing the App Store in version III. Even if it is based on Open Source software, it does not mean it is open to other people to tinker with it.

Two of the misses mentioned don't bother me at all. Others will disagree.

Dual card slots. The likelihood of cameras this small having two completely separate slots is pretty slim. So if one goes down, so does the other. As for two cards failing, that would be a benefit. But if the camera still uses SD cards, that is an issue. XQD cards are much more reliable. (Nikon UK saw one single card failure in all of last year.)

So it doesn't bother me.

Laptops losing SD card slots? Yeah, that would be an issue for me, but the thing is, you can't change them. And with ATECH coming out with amazing Thunderbolt 3 card readers, I'm not so bothered. They will be faster than built-in SD card slots. And they are replaceable without major surgery. So it's a non-issue for me.

Good list of plusses and minuses.

Weight savings? Get low focal length primes at F4 or slower. The weight savings of mirrorless with fast and/or long lenses is a myth.
The bottom line is this: whatever the exact measurement of the "weight savings" is for a FF MILC versus a FF DSLR, ...it's (almost always) far LESS than the difference compared to 1.) going with a smaller sensor overall, 2.) going with a smaller aperture, and sometimes even, 3.) going with lesser overall quality. (flimsy camera body, soft-cornered optics, etc.)

In short, if you truly need portability then you ought to consider giving up the FF sensor altogether, or adding an APS-C or M43 kit to your arsenal.

The Sony sensor......or equivalent, runs circles around the Canon sensor. I think they will eventually get their feature set going in the right direction but the sensor must go through a revolutionary update for me to ever consider them again.  I do use some Canon glass with my Sony A7r ll.
I think that the 5Dmk4 sensor is as big of a leap forward as Canon could have been expected to pull off, as one of their very first sensors with on-chip ADC, after the "dark ages" of literally a decade of base ISO dynamic range hitting a brick wall at around the ~12 EV mark.

It closed the gap enough that I can go back to recommending that people consider other merits of a system as a whole, when deciding on a camera, instead of strictly admonishing everyone to just pick between Nikon or Sony if they're a landscape photographer.

It's a shame that Canon didn't take the next step, and make a whole new, same-resolution ~30 MP sensor that had another EV of base ISO DR, and slightly more competitive high ISO image quality, but honestly, I think Canon is likely saying, "at least we didn't put the 6Dmk2 sensor in it!"

It has been their tactic for many generations now, (indeed, since the days of the 1Ds's) to reserve the best technology for their most flagship offerings. In other words, the camera that will truly compete with the Sony A7R3, and the Nikon D850/Z7, will likely cost $3500+...

To stick with Canon now is to accept this one down-side of being the #1 market share brand.

That's not to say folks shouldn't loudly proclaim the urgent need for Canon to do better at this ~$2300 price point, and do it soon. They needed an absolute show-stopper as their first FF MILC, and to "kill" the A7iii (and hopefully stop ship-jumping dead in its tracks, at this price range) ...would have required dual SD card slots, IBIS, and un-cropped 4K video. Had they done those three things, I think this 5D4 sensor plus the noticeably improved DPAF (though not in Servo mode, I suppose) would have been more than enough to do the trick.

I made similar comments in another thread, adding what for my main uses is the biggest weight saver of all: good IS, which these days seems to mean IBIS, or better yet, hybrid lens-body IS.

Thanks Jeremy, https://www.dpreview.com/news/3430444458/zeiss-announces-full-frame-compact-with-fixed-35mm-f2-lens/1 and I was positively surprised about this. I did not see a comment about an app store approach so that others could offer a similar shooting, editing and sharing experience, but that seems fairly obvious to come with this approach they have taken. Great to see a company thinking out of the box! I could be tempted to buy one of their cameras just to support their vision. So I guess we can conclude it is possible to get Android on a camera :)

The EOS R does not have an interval timer. I thought it had a built-in timelapse mode (where it creates a single video file) but I can't find that in the menu right now, so maybe I imagined it...
