Canon EOS R Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Canon has finally joined the mirrorless full-frame party with the pro-friendly EOS R. But does it do enough to take the limelight from Nikon and Sony?

Great image quality ; Excellent EVF ; Full-frame images in an APS-C like shell

No in-body stabilisation ; Not the smallest full-frame CSC

A successful entry in the rapidly growing team of full-frame mirrorless cameras, if not the most complete in this class

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 review

 

Canon's EOS R, the company's first full-frame mirrorless camera, impresses us with its image quality and color rendition. But it also comes with quirky ergonomics, uninspiring video features and a number of other shortcomings. Read our full review to...

The EOS R is Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera, and with a proven sensor and great color output, it's capable of producing really great photographs. But then again, there are many full-frame cameras on the market today that are capable of...

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.

Canon EOS R

 

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: A new era for full-frame mirrorless

 

Canon's full-frame mirrorless camera comes with a new lens mount and a stack of features. Does it represent the future, or spell imminent failure?

Full-frame sensor and new lens line-up delivers superb quality potential ; Loads of customisation options ; Intuitive touch controls and M-Fn Bar has potential ; Finally a Canon mirrorless with impressive autofocus options ; Can focus in very low-light...

Lenses really aren't small ; Just one SD card slot ; It's rather pricey ; Learning curve for DSLR users: various settings hidden/require scrolling ; Autofocus could be more precise in some situations

This full-frame mirrorless camera is a major turning point for Canon, embodying both risk and reward in one very capable and commendable product.

Canon EOS R review

 

Canon have taken a seat at the full-frame mirrorless table

Great image quality ; Fully articulating screen ; Custom controls

Single SD card slot ; High price ; No in-body IS

A good first attempt, but it doesn’t blow us away - Canon will need to up its game for the next iteration of the R series

Canon EOS R review

 

We take Canon's latest full-frame powerhouse for a spin

Great handling ; Excellent AF performance ; Lovely touchscreen ; Top-plate LCD is very versatile ; Decent electronic viewfinder

No great size advantage over an EOS DSLR ; Value of M-Fn control debatable ; No AF joystick ; 4K video limitations ; Single SD card slot

The Canon EOS R is a very capable camera, and should satisfy many EOS DSLR owners looking for a solid mirrorless alternative. If we weren't bound by a system, however, it would be hard to pick the EOS R over its rivals, especially when you consider the...
