Canon EOS R first thoughts. Is it worth buying? Are you disappointed? Mirrorless 4K Full Frame Digital Camera 2018 Photography Talk

After all the rumours and the long wait, Canon has finally released the first
Mirrorless Full-Frame Camera joining the party with Sony and now also Nikon

Canon EOS R Nikon Sony Mirrorless 4K Digital camera review 2018

however, here I will talk mainly about Canon, particularly because I am a Canon shooter. Therefore the question is……is it worth buying that camera?  Let me give you my thoughts about it. As you probably know I like to shoot landscapes, outdoor lifestyles and activities, such as seen in the video you see below.  In this video I’m on a hike where the problem is the haze, and as the clouds come and go, I thought I would take the opportunity to give you my thoughts about this new camera release.

Canon EOS R Mirrorless 4K Digital camera review 2018
This long-awaited camera, has been quite a talking point for quite some time now, such as “when are Canon going to come out with a mirrorless full-frame?” and I think people started to get impatient, especially when you don’t want to have to switch brands, such as Sony, who had already updated their models.   Once you have a set of lenses and accessories compatible to a certain brand it’s quite difficult to make a switch and you know of course, whether you are an amateur or a professional photograher it is always good to be up on the game with the latest model of camera to come out, but I feel that sometimes, these manufacturers take us for a bit of a ride, because when you spend the sort of money we need to spend, they give you something, but certainly don’t give you everything, so then you always have to come up with compromises. I am very practical and when I want to upgrade or change camera and equipment I look at what that new equipment is going give me that it doesn’t let me do now.

Digital Camera Mirrorless Sensor Size Full Frame Aps-C Micro 4-3 1inch sensors photography

Yes, they have finally put a full-frame sensor into a mirrorless body, but what would you expect?
Why would you get a mirrorless rather than a DSLR?
Maybe you don’t want to have the mirror flicking up, or you would expect the camera to be of a smaller compact body or faster shutter speed (only 7 frames per second that goes down only to 5 frames per second, if you don’t use servo focus)? Not great, if you know you can buy one of those Micro Four Thirds cameras that can go up to 15 frames per second.

The second big mistake or should I say lack of specs, is just the one SD card slot which for any photographer that has some responsibility whether it be a wedding or any sort of shoot, two card slots are of great importance.  Whether to back up your work or if you want to shoot in RAW or JPEG, video etc.

The third problem is the lack of in-body in-built sensor stabilisation.  I have a little camera, that I think, is one of the most underrated cameras out there, and it’s got five axes image stabilization with an aps-c sensor.
You really see good image quality when you are using aps-c and full frame sensor cameras.  If the light is good, then you could go down to micro four-thirds, to a 1-inch sensor or even a mobile phone sometimes produces good photos.  It’s then, depending on what you evaluate as being a good photo. I love the Micro Four Thirds cameras as they have a multitude of specifications that you might need, but unfortunately, they can lose image quality, particularly in certain light conditions, like the atmospheric day today, you start to see more noise in the image and lack of details in the clouds. This is where you can see the quality from the Aps-C sensor or the Full-frame.  Maybe it just requires a bit more post-processing, but if I can do less of that, the better. That’s why I like Canon, because I like the colours that come straight out of the camera, there’s very little post-processing to do and the files are beautiful and ready to go.

Another problem of this new camera, is that Canon has now decided after so many years, to change the lens mount, so you now need an adapter to be able to fit on the camera all the lenses that you’ve collected over the years.  Whether it is an EF lens or an EF-s lens, it is an extra piece of kit that you need to buy and to carry along with you.  Less is always more.

Canon EOS R Lens Mount Adapter Mirrorless Digital Camera 4K 2018 Photography Thoughts Review

Another thing they’ve given the illusion of is having a good 4k, but this 4k gets so cropped that you either have to use a big wide-angle lens to compensate that, but then that gets cropped anyway so.. what’s the point? A good thing about 4k is to be able to extract some good still images from each frame of your video footage, whilst retaining all of the details in your images.  Some issues with using 4k is that all the technology is not quite up to the game and so the files become really heavy.  If you try to upload a video on YouTube in 4k, it can take quite an age and everything slows down.

One good thing people have been asking for, is the fully-articulated screen in a full frame body camera, as this was only seen in the 70d and then the 80d.

If you want to move to a mirrorless camera, and spend half the money, then take a look at the Canon EOS M5.  It’s got a compact body (that’s one of the reasons why you want a mirrorless camera), it’s got a flippable screen and 5-axes in-body image stabilisation.  This means that I can shoot using lenses that are not stabilised, as the camera automatically stabilise them and if the lens is stabilised, then you get a double stabilisation effect. That means that you can really shoot at a much slower shutter speed and still get sharp images.
The EOS M5 has got a very good touch screen (the touch screen of Canon is second to none), it’s fantastic and really responsive. It’s got Wi-Fi connectivity and has everything that you need to shoot good photography with 24.5 megapixel images, RAW files and it costs less than half of the price of the new EOS R!
So let me let me hear in the comments below your thoughts, if you think this new camera EOS R from Canon is worth buying.  I personally don’t think so, but I want to hear your thoughts.
Until next time this is Fabo from Fabulous Outdoors ..see you next time!

Visiting Borghetto sul Mincio Verona Veneto Italy Guide Travel Blog #FabulousOutdoors

A travel guide to this beautiful location situated at the foot of Lake Garda in Italy.
Valeggio sul Mincio is a village in the Province of Verona in the Italian region Veneto, located about 120 kilometres (75 miles) west of Venice and about 25 kilometres (16 miles) southwest of Verona. It is crossed by the Mincio river.
The economy is mostly based on agriculture, with some craftwork and industrial production.

————————————————
History:
Archaeological excavations in the Mincio valley include a Bronze Age settlements, some tombs dating to the Iron Age and some findings associated with the Etruscan civilization. A large Celtic necropolis, found in 1984 still partly buried under the current town, would prove the presence of that people from the 4th century AC and the 1st century DC.

The creation of the villages of Valeggio and Borghetto dates to the Lombard rule in northern Italy. The monastery of Santa Maria was founded here, on the Mincio shore, was founded here in the 12th century; later it was a priory of the Knights Templar. The large medieval fortifications which characterize Valeggio (Scaliger castle, the Visconti Bridge and the Serraglio difensive line) were built between the 13th and the 14th centuries. In 1405 Valeggio became part of the Republic of Venice, and subsequently lost its strategic role, becoming an agricultural center and a silkworms trading market.

After the fall of the Republic of Venice in 1797, Valeggio was included in the Cisalpine Republic. Later it was part of the Italian Republic (1802-1805) and, after some decades under the Austrian rule, of the newly unified Kingdom of Italy.

The Mountain Wildlife of the Gran Paradiso National Park – #FabulousOutdoors

Wildlife Documentary filmed at the Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso – Grand Paradis National Park – Fabulous Outdoor Photography
Footage of the wild animals living in the mountains, including mountain goats, alpine ibex, marmots, deer..

Alpine Ibex at sunset in the Gran Paradiso National Pak - Fabulous Outdoors

In the month of May, when the seasons are transitioning and the snow is slowly melting away, the mountains come alive. Some of these animals have been sleeping for most of the winter, like the marmots, and start foraging for food. The alpine ibex and the mountain goats begin to moult, which is why you'll often see them scratching their fur with their horns or rubbing against trees or rocks.

Visiting the Gran Paradiso National Park is a great opportunity not only to go for a beautiful mountain hike, but also for the amazing encounters with this lovely wild creatures.
