Canon EOS R: The Canon EOS R 1 month later.. Big Mistake?

RYN Photography has been using the EOS R for a month as his main camera and here are his thoughts on the EOS R and if he felt it was a big mistake getting the EOS R.  It's an older video that I missed at the time, but still relevant if you are considering an EOS R as I know there's still quite a few people (like me) wondering if the EOS R is the right camera for them.

  • Liked the EVF after getting used of it.  Especially for video recording.
  • The eye detection for the EVF a bit fussy when attached to a gimbal
  • Battery life has been good
  • No issues using EF lenses with it
  • Favorite feature / button is the m.fn button
  • Hasn't found the touchbar too useful
  • Flip screen has been fantastic
  • Ergonomics in general, felt better than the 5D Mark IV after a while
  • Left camera out in the rain, EVF fogged up but otherwise was fine
  • Has had occasional lockups (three times) in burst mode

Verdict:  If you have an EOS R and want to trade it for an 5D Mark IV, talk to him. He likes the R more than his 5D Mark IV.
