London with the Canon EOS R

I took a long walk around Central London in the summer with the Canon EOS and tested the mic, took pictures and videos. I believe the EOS R is the Perfect Upgrade from the Canon 7D Mark II.

It is an enigma wrapped in a riddle.

Before buying the EOS R I went through the usual stages of comparing the specs with other Canon DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. There are reviews out there hailing the camera is the best thing since sliced bread. Other reviewers point out its flaws and claim that it could not even compare to Sony’s A7iii.

It is a give and take relationship with this camera. Meaning that you give £3,000 only for Canon to take away features that would make the camera complete. For one, it is a full-frame camera that turns into a crop sensor when shooting in 4k. It shoots in 60fps but only in 1080p. Why! Why would Canon do this to us?

You cannot always trust your first impressions.

With the EOS R do not judge the book by its cover or what is written in it. I was just as confused you probably are right now but let me explain. To my surprise, the picture quality from the EOS R is better than Sony’s A7iii. The colours are fuller on the EOS R, it gives you those unrivaled Canon colours. There is no other way to describe it than to say the pictures and videos captured on the Canon are just more beautiful.

In my humble opinion, the reason that we all buy a camera is to capture the most beautiful moving and still shots. The Canon EOS R does just that.
