Chris and Jordan are out of the office this week, so we're taking a trip in the wayback machine to feature a classic episode of DPRTV: a review of the EOS R, Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera.

Canon EOS R

 

Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS R, offers strong image quality and autofocus, but is held back by its ergonomics and video system.

Proven 30MP full-frame sensor. Vari-angle touch LCD. Big, sharp EVF. 8fps continuous capture. Big shooting buffer. Broad lens compatibility via adapter. Unique native lenses.

M-Fn bar tricky to use effectively. Uncomfortable rear dial. Omits focus joystick. No in-body stabilization system. Inconsistent metering. Single memory card slot. No PC sync socket. 4K video is heavily cropped.

Bottom Line: Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS R, offers strong image quality and autofocus, but is held back by its ergonomics and video system.

Canon EOS R First Impressions Review

 

The Canon EOS R is the first full frame mirrorless camera to use the new RF mount. We're well underway putting it through our range of standard tests – take a look at how it compares to the competition and our thoughts on using it so far.

The EOS R is official and it's a big leap for Canon

 

But the company's long-anticipated full-frame model seems a small, expensive step for mirrorless.

What We Love. Brewed up with a blend of 5D Mark IV goodies and forged into a smaller package that costs only a few hundred dollars more than a 6D Mark II or Sony A7 III, the Canon EOS R produces excellent, high-resolution images and features some of...

Canon EOS R Review

 

In the Canon EOS R, we are looking at the future and I like what I see. In addition to being packed full of the latest technology and features, the EOS R comes with a new lens mount, the first new Canon full frame lens mount in over 30 years. The new...

Canon EOS R Review

 

Canon have finally rewarded their loyal fans by jumping on the full-frame mirrorless bandwagon with a radically new camera and, perhaps even more importantly, a completely new lens mount. The EOS R isn't the best full-frame camera on the market, but...

Canon EOS R Review

 

Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera brings to the table a compact and weather-sealed body, a high-res 30MP sensor, fast Dual-Pixel CMOS AF, and nice 4Kp30 video. There's a lot to like, such as:

Very good overall image quality; Good dynamic range & very good high ISO performance; Excellent Dual Pixel CMOS AF performance; Sharp native lenses; Great performance with adapted optics; Compact design; Fully articulating LCD.

Sensor performance lags behind competition; No In-Body Image Stabilization; Sluggish burst speed with C-AF; Mediocre battery life; No 4Kp60; 1.7x 4K crop; Ergonomics could be better.

Canon EOS R review

 

Two years after its launch, how does the Canon EOS R fare in contemporary terms?

Great control customization ; 5,655(!) focus positions ; Fully articulating screen ; M-Fn Bar

No in-body stabilization ; Cropped 4K video ; Single SD card slot ; M-Fn Bar

A capable but conservative full-frame mirrorless camera, it boasts crisp 30.3MP imaging and unlocks the door to Canon's spectacular RF-mount lenses. Even so, there are enough compromises – the cropped 4K, single memory card slot and lack of IBIS – that...
