Coming with a magnesium alloy frame, the EOS R model has a sensor of 30.3 megapixels with Dual Pixel RAW which you can also find inside the EOS 5D Mark IV that is also among the favorite full-frame DSLRs. This camera has a maximum speed of up to eight frames per second and an extended ISO range of 50-102,400.
On the front side, the EOS R is better than the 5D Mark IV. It is able to captures 4K at 30 fps and 720p/120 video. What is more, Canon also integrated in its C-Log gamma curve as well as 10-bit HDMI output if users want shoot with an extra recorder.
While the 5D model is already integrated with Dual Pixel Autofocus, the EOS R takes advantage of a whole new version with 5,655 focus points.
The Digic 8 image processor of Canon can deal with both the autofocus and image processing.
On the rear of the camera is an articulating LCD touchscreen of 3.15 inches. Meanwhile, an OLED display with 3.69 million dots powers the electronic viewfinder. Both of them are really effective.
What is more, the EOS R also comes with a new customizable Multi-Function Bar placed next to the EVF eyepiece. Pictures and videos captured will be saved to a single card slot. Last but not least, both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection are provided to transfer files or manage the camera from a distance using a smart phone application.
The Canon EOS R is a new device, which is the first item of its kind for Canon. At the first glance, users are not able to realize it. Together with the standard design approach, the EOS R also offers a more pronounced battery grip.
To put in a conclusion, the EOS R is an ideal option which is smaller than the body of other 5d cameras. However, the magnesium frame brings about a firmed feel and a reassuring weight. The battery grip is smaller than what you can find on the 5D Mark III. Nevertheless, it does not feel too small even your hands are big.
