Canon EOS R Review: Overview

Canon EOS R - Product Image - Front

The Canon EOS R was Launched in 2018. It is one of the Best Canon Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera.

The Canon EOS R is made up of Ground Up with Magnesium Alloy. And it comes with Dust-Proof and Moist-Proof to Withstand Messy Conditions.

There are Some Radical Changes in this Camera’s Ergonomic Design which I will discuss later in the post.

The Control Ring, Bar, etc., helps speed up your Workflow. It Feels Sturdy, Strong, and Compact.

Canon R kit has a lens adapter, which is a blessing for me. You can attach EF/EF-S Lenses to the Camera. 

The Adapter also has a Variable ND Filter inside. 

But, What’s Impressive is that you Get a Control Ring for this Filer in the Adapter. So, you can Apply or Remove the ND Filter in Real-Time. And the Filer sits at the Back of the Lenses.

That makes it easier to reach and play with the Filter.

Photo Quality Overview

Now, let us Talk about Image Quality and Performance. And as I said earlier, it Performs Excellently in all Conditions.

It comes with a 30.3 MP Full-Frame Sensor and the DIGIC 8 Image Processor. The Overall Image Quality is incredible. 

Because of its ISO Range up to 40000, it has a Wide Dynamic Range. 

The Autofocus System works Fast and Accurately. I had no problem using Autofocus in Either Video or Photo Mode. 

The Noise Reduction Ability of this Camera Allows you to Capture High ISO Photos Without any worry.

And Most Importantly, the Canon EOS R Comes with the ability to Take Photos with a Log Profile. You can get so much out of that. 

The Contrast and Exposure are Managed well by the Camera.

Also, Canon EOS R gives you the Ability of Raw Image Processing. That means I can do Quick Fixes to a Raw File within the Camera and share it on my Mobile.

Video Quality Overview

Now, let me tell you about its Video Quality in Short. 

With Canon EOS R, You can take a 4K Video at 30 FPS. Though, it has a 1.7X Crop on its 4K Video. And it might not be convenient for some people.

Besides that, the Video Quality of Canon R is fantastic.

Overall, Canon EOS R is fantastic for people looking for a great photo and video camera combination.

Canon EOS R Review: Photo Quality

In this section, I will talk about five major factors contributing to the photo quality of Canon EOS R in detail.

Sensor 

Canon EOS R Sensor
Sensor

Canon EOS R has a Full-Frame 30.3 Megapixels CMOS Sensor. The Camera offers a great combination of Colors and Clarity.

I have Tried this Sensor in Several Conditions, from Daylight to Mixed Disco Lights. And the Camera Performed Well in all conditions.

With a 14-Bit Color Depth, the Skin Tones also come out Excellent.

I had to say that the High-Resolution Sensor Played an essential role in capturing the best photos possible.

The Colors were close to the Original Colors that I could see Through my Eyes. That is why I love Canon’s Color Science.

But as much as I loved the colors, I also Loved its Low-Light Performance. The DIGIC 8 Image Processor can Pull the Shadows Very Well in Low-Light Conditions.

And in Mixed-Light, Canon EOS R Showed its Metering Ability. Although, you can get more out of your Pictures with Log or Raw Photos.

Also, the Dual Pixel Autofocus System on this CMOS Sensor Quickly Focuses on the Subject.

The Full-Frame CMOS Sensor with DIGIC 8 Image Processor produces High-Quality Images without Noise.

The Photos clicked from the Canon EOS R Sensor are Clear, Well Balanced, and of High Resolutions.

AutoFocus 

The Canon EOS R has 5655 Autofocus Points. And if you wonder how did they manage to achieve it?

Well, they Arranged about 87 Horizontal and 65 Vertical Points.

Anyways, Canon not only managed to put 5655 points, but they also managed to make it Fast and Accurate.

You will not be disappointed with the Autofocus Ability of Canon EOS R. Anybody who has used Canon EOS R will tell you about its Reliable Autofocus.

Once the Camera locks onto your Face or Eye, the Camera Rarely Loses Focus. The Autofocus is Similarly Fast and Accurate in Low-Light Conditions.

You can Change Autofocus in Live-View with its Touchscreen. You can Also Drag your Fingers Across, and the Camera Focus will Follow your Finger.

With the Autofocus in Still Photography, Canon EOS R Autofocus Works Excellently in the Video.

The Camera traces my Eyes and Face very well, even in Low Light Conditions. The Autofocus of Canon EOS R is Reliable.

Even in Burst Mode, I Didn’t Lose Focus on any of the images Taken. That is convincing for me to Continue using this Camera for Long Hours.

Image Stabilization 

Canon EOS R provides a Digital Image Stabilization System that only works in the Video. So, if you want Better Stabilization, I suggest you Buy Lenses with Stabilization.

Following that, Canon’s Digital Stabilization works Decently. Even with your Shaky Hands, the Camera Adopts Decently.

Although the Compensation is not Pro-Level, Casual Videographers will love it.

I walked while Talking into the Camera. And the Stabilization was pretty good.

And it got more impressive when you use a 4K video, and the Stabilization comes into play. You get Smooth 4K Video output with little to no jerks.

Shooting Speed 

So, if Canon EOS R does not have Built-In Stabilization, should you be using it for Sports Photography?

Let me tell you.

The Canon EOS R has a DIGIC 8 processor that can give you up to 8 FPS with 47 Raw Shots and 100 JPEG Shots.

And that means you can take it out for Dynamic Shooting. 

Here are a few things to focus on in Shooting Speed. 

The First is that when you Choose Autofocus in Continuous Mode, the FPS Drops to 5 FPS. It leads to Fewer Frames per second in choosing a Peak-of-the-Action Photo.

Second, The Viewfinder Blacks out after the Burst Mode Session.

Even though it Blacks out for a Few Milliseconds, you might find it Frustrating while Shooting for an Important Client.

Exposure 

Skyscrapers Building Harbor By Canon R6
Skyscrapers Building Harbor By Canon R6
EF70-200mm f/4L IS II USM
115.0mm · ƒ/8.0 · 2s · ISO 400

The Canon EOS R has an ISO Range from 100 to 40000 in Auto Mode and can be Extended up to 50 to 102,400. It provides a wide dynamic range.

So, if you Click Photos of Real Estate or Architecture, the Shadows will Come out nicely.

Also, the Camera Performs Very Well in Low-Light.

Thanks to its DIGIC 8 Image Processor, the Noise Reduction coupled with Dynamic Range gives you Detailed Low-Light Photos.

The Canon R offers you a Shutter Speed Range from 1/8000 to 30 seconds along with ISO.

And its Metering Range is from -3 to 20 EV. That is also a reason for its Excellent Low-Light Performance.

Also, the Canon R provides an ISO Range from 100 to 25,600 for Video Mode. And you can extend it up to 104,000.

I tested Canon EOS R with Exposed Images at About ISO 12800. And I could see the photos started to lose some details, but it was still usable.

Then I tested this Camera with over-exposed and under-exposed scenarios to see how much detail we recover.

And I could recover a useable photo up to 4 stops under-exposed photos. While I was only able to recover up to 3 stops of over-exposed images.

Those were the impressive results for a mirrorless camera at its price point.

Canon EOS R Review: Video Quality

You can check out the Video Quality Review of Canon EOS R Below.

4K Video 

Canon EOS R can Record Beautiful and Clear 4K Videos at 30 FPS. But it comes with a 1.7x crop. So, you have to use Wide Lenses for a Decent Shot. And those Lenses are Pretty Expensive.

But that does not limit the 4K Quality of Canon R. 

Overall, the video quality of Canon EOS R is awe-inspiring.

Full HD Video 

You can record Full HD 1080p Videos at up to 60 FPS. The Autofocus does an Excellent Job Tracking the Subject.

The Eye and Face Tracking of the Canon R works decently.

With Some Lenses, you Might have Focusing Issues. But other than that, there is No Major Problem.

Although, Some People Might Feel bad about its inability to record 120 FPS in 1080p Resolution.

The Canon R does support 120 FPS at 720p Resolution.

And honestly, there is nothing to feel bad about it. Of course, there is so much more detail in 1080p. But a Casual YouTuber can make use of it.

Also, the Image Stabilization helped me a lot in this 720p Resolution Slow-Motion.

Although, the Performance of Canon EOS R Stabilization is Decent in all Video Formats.

Vlogging 

The overall Video Quality and Compact size make Canon EOS R a good choice for Vlogging. You can read more about them below.

Firstly, the Ergonomics. The Canon EOS R feels Compact and Sturdy in your Hands. With its Deep Grip, you will Feel Confident while Holding the Camera.

Every Button is Within reach of your First Finger and Thumb.

Although, I found that the Record Button is Offside.

But, after a few days, I got acquainted. And the button arrangement felt intuitive. The layout of the buttons makes it easy to learn all the Camera’s features.

Also, the Camera is easy to pack and carry due to its small size. It only weighs around 660 grams. That makes it easy to hand-held the Camera for long hours.

Now let us talk about its Daily Performance. First, its Autofocus works excellently in all conditions.

Once it locks on your face or eye, Canon EOS hardly Loses Focus. Canon EOS R can track the Subject Easily in Low-Light Conditions and Well-Crowded Places.

And I had no Issues while Recording a Vlog.

Plus, its Stabilization Performance while recording works decently. You must move a lot when you walk through a crowded area. But the Video always comes out sharp and clear.

And since this Camera comes with C-log, you get more control in post-production before uploading to any platform.

Apart from that, its audio quality is also Decent. But, the Camera has a hard time in windy conditions.

Overall, The Canon R is an excellent choice for vloggers who can give up 4K and slow-motion in 1080p.

Audio

Canon EOS R lets you Record audio with its In-Built Mic. And for Casual Videographers, the Audio Quality is Decent. 

But as Windy or Noisy gets, the Camera can not Reduce the Audio Noise around. In crowded places, I had to use an External Mic. But at home, it was not necessary to attach an external mic.

In Slow-Motion Videos, the Camera does not Record any Audio. And that is a good thing.

I don’t have to spend time in the Post-Production, replacing original audio with my music. Even Though an External Mic is unnecessary, I recommend you buy one.

Canon EOS R Review: Features

Now let us talk about features apart from the performance of the Camera. These are the features that affect your experience with the Camera daily.

Weight & Portability 

The Canon EOS R is made with Magnesium Alloy. So, the Camera only Weighs about 660 Grams.

Being a Mirrorless Camera, you get a Compact and Lightweight Body. You can pack your Camera in a Handbag quickly and easily.

Or hang around your Neck while climbing a Mountain for Some Excellent Composition. For Vloggers, it is Easier to Hand Held the Camera while recording videos.

You don’t want a lot of Muscles to handle Canon R with a Single Hand. And if you travel with this Camera, you can Carry its Battery Pack.

Canon R comes with a Resizeable Grip, and you will get more of the Standard Size and Weight of the Camera.

Overall, the Canon EOS R is a Lightweight, Compact, and Portable Camera.

Build Quality 

The Build Quality of Canon EOS R is Excellent. The Magnesium Alloy Body is Durable and Weather Sealed. Though, You should avoid getting into Heavy Rain.

Canon EOS R is the most reliable mirrorless camera among its rivals and peers.

Ergonomics & Comfort 

Canon Cameras are always ahead of their Rivals in Ergonomics and Comfort. First, its Resizable Grip helps you hold the Camera according to your Hand Size.

For Some People, the Camera Sight Feel Small, and for others, it might feel just right.

As talked about earlier, the Canon EOS R only weighs 660 grams. It is lightweight and compact.

And with a deeper grip, it balances very well with heavy lenses. 

Canon R feels like a Premium Camera from the moment you take it in your hands. The Magnesium Alloy Chassis feels Strong yet Lightweight in your hands. All the buttons and dials and nicely placed.

Overall, Canon EOS R gives you a Premium Feel.

Menu System 

There is a lot to say about the Menu System of the Canon EOS R. Let me Start with the obvious, the Touch-Screen.

Canon R has a Touch-Screen. It allows you to Navigate Through the Menu System.

Of course, you can use Dials to Navigate Through the Menu. But, there is more than one thing to change in your Settings. And that is a Good Design.

Firstly, there is a Mode Button with the Dial to go into Photo and Video Settings.

Due to it, I can set different settings for photos and videos. And those settings won’t affect each other.

I can now have a Different Setting for Photos. And another preset for videos at the press of a button.

Second, there is a Control Ring on the lens. You can assign any one of the ISO, White Balance, Exposure, or Aperture to the Control Ring.

I love this feature so much. After assigning one of the Settings to the Control Ring, you can Change that Setting on the FlyFly.

Third, there is a Touch Bar. Only ISO is assigned to it at the time.

And Finally, there is a Lock Button. It Locks all the Input Buttons except the Record and Photo-Click Buttons.

All of these are to make your Workflow Faster. And Canon’s Menu System is Organized Excellently. It is Easier to learn all the Features in the Menu System.

Viewfinder 

Canon EOS R has an Electronic Viewfinder. The EVF is a 0.5-inch OLED Display with 100% Coverage and a 0.76x Magnification.

Even though the EVF has around 3.68 Million Dots, it is pretty standard. The EVF also comes with an Eye Sensor.

There is a way to pull all the Info from the Screen to the Viewfinder. All you have to do is press the Info Button.

And then, you can Adjust What Settings you want and what not. You can Adjust Fonts etc. This way, you get a lot of Information Right into the Viewfinder.

And you can change the settings on the FlyFly to see how it will affect your photo.

And if you press the Info Button Twice, you will get 5x Magnification with the Focus on your Macro Subjects.

You could press three times to have a 10x Magnification with the Focus.

And as we all know, this is the only Advantage of an Electronic Viewfinder over an Optical Viewfinder.

Screen 

Canon EOS R - Product Image - Articulating Screen

The Canon EOS R has a 3.2-inch Articulating Touch-Screen LCD. The Resolution of the Screen is Crisp and Clear.

That Helps us to Get Creative with our Camera Angles. Also, you can Tilt the Screen to Change the Angle if you can not see in Daylight.

And the Screen also Allows you to Navigate the Menu through Touch. You can also Tap to Focus on the Screen or Slide to Focus.

Although, if you are in Extreme Hot or Cold Places, you might have Problems with the Screen. The Canon R Screen goes black above 40 Degrees Celcius and Below 0 Degrees Celcius.

Also, it is difficult to see on the Screen with Low Brightness in Daylight.

Battery Life 

Canon EOS R has an 1865 mAh Capacity. It takes about 2 hours and 30 Minutes to charge after Complete Exhaustion.

And it can only shoot 350 Shots without Battery Power Saving and EVF. You could get around 450 -500 Photos in a Single Charge for Normal Shots.

Now, what do I mean by “normal” shots? If you turn off the Autofocus and you are not in burst mode. Then the Camera can take up to 450-500 photos.

The only problem with EOS R is its Battery.

If the Battery could have given about 700-900 Shots, the Camera Could have been one of the Top-Level Cameras.

And Honestly Speaking, I think this is a big drawback if you are Travelling. 

Connectivity

Regarding connectivity, the Canon EOS R gives you the Option to Connect your Phone via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Sadly, there is No GPS in this Camera. But, I have personally rarely used GPS in a camera.

And for that reason, it didn’t bother me much without the GPS.
