  • Totally agree, the r5 is a better wildlife camera due to the level or fine feather/ fur detail it can render. Also the r5’s af isn’t too far off the r3 either. If you don’t need 30 fps, there is ...
  • The thing with mirrorless is that if the focus is off you see it in the viewfinder, with a dslr that was not the case, you never knew if you had achieved critical focus until you reviewed the ...
  • Replied in R3 Pre-Orders
    An r1 with 50 or 60mpixels would be amazing, it’s what I’m waiting for too. The r3 body would be fine but with 2 cf express cards. a 36 mpixel high end r7 with a 1.6 crop would also be killer for ...
  • Does anyone really care what DXO think?
  • Replied in R3 Pre-Orders
    Thats great news, i had the same email from WEX this morning saying mine was in stock too but I declined to take it. Enjoy. For wildlife, the low resolution was bugging me after using the r5's ...
  • Replied in R3 Pre-Orders
    the 1dx3 is an awesome camera but has no advantage over the r3 so get rid of it before the value drops
  • Replied in R3 Pre-Orders
    That’s great news, congrats. Let’s hope the Uk isn’t far behind.
  • Replied in R3 Pre-Orders
    Yes that’s for the first pre-order deliveries. That’s what they told me anyway.
  • Replied in R3 Pre-Orders
    WEX are saying first deliveries end of December.
  • Are you sure yours in genuine?
  • I will look into it, thx
  • I use 2 r5’s for wedding s and love them the low light af is exceptionally good, better than any other current mirrorless camera ( I also have use of a Sony a1 and the canon r5 is better) iso ...
  • Mirrorless cameras are always in Live view, you just decide whether to look through the viewfinder or use the rear screen. You can get the camera to switch automatically depending on if your ...
  • Rock solid grips here on my 2 r5’s I find the button placement fine except the little joystick could have been in a better position, otherwise another great grip from Canon. if you look at some of ...
  • Rolling shutter has nothing to do with sensor resolution, it’s the scan rate of the sensor and the time it takes for the sensor to complete one cycle. look at it like a photocopier thick drags it’s ...
  • I have 3 bought at various times and they are all rock solid.
  • Replied in CF card in R5
    Mine is different to yours, what I did was take the sensor out and soldered the compact flash card directly to the back of it before putting it back in. I now use the usb cable to transfer data to ...
  • If your talking the latest Ef 600 mk3 then not a lot as that lens already has electronic focusing and was designed knowing that mirrorless cameras were coming. If your talking all previous versions ...
  • I don’t shoot lossless or lossy raw on any camera, the z9 hasn’t got a totally uncompressed raw mode. There is no free lunch.
  • Z9 doesn’t have eye controlled focus, in that you can’t look at the object you want the camera to focus on like you can with the r3. I never liked the 3D tracking on the d6 The z9 has a built in ...
