  • I rented one last month and after using it for a week I ordered one and was amazed at the bird recognition AF. I have been mostly shooting Canon for birds for the last two years. I feel that in ...
  • I am a former M43 shooter (Panasonic G9) who tried a Canon R6 soon after it came out. I was blown away by the AF for birds. I shoot mostly birds with the occasional family pics and some travel. I ...
  • Replied in More Hummers
    Nice shots. I rented an OM-1 a couple of weeks ago and was impressed with it’s ability to focus on hummingbirds in flight. By far the best camera I have used for hummingbirds. I finally ordered ...
  • Perfect. Thanks!
  • The control ring is set in the camera menu to control aperture. As I said earlier this works for my other 5 RF lenses with no issues. Is there a setting somewhere else that I am missing?
  • Created question thread RF-S 18-150 Control Ring Isssue
    I bought an R7 that I have had since they came out around the first week of June. I got the kit because I thought it would ship quicker and hadn’t really used the 18-150 until tonight. I mostly ...
  • I have the R7 and the RF 100-500. I have some issues with the rolling shutter on the R7 but otherwise it is perfect for the 100-500mm. The lens is super sharp and for birds the 800mm equivalent is ...
  • Thanks for sharing your experience. In using the R7 and R6 the past couple of days since the OM-1 went back I have really been missing the OM-1. At least the compactness and the AF. I am seriously ...
  • I just got finished with using the OM-1 and R7 side by side for a week. I rented the OM-1 from Lensrentals.com. I used it with the PL 100-400mm lens. I am primarily a bird shooter (with some ...
  • I am using the exact same cards and have shot a ton of video in every format with no issues. As an experiment one night last week I just put the camera on the kitchen counter and recorded 4K Fine ...
  • As someone who owns both bodies I think if you do a lot of wildlife you will want to go with the R7. I love the R6 but it is a little overmatched for wildlife. The R7 is great but the rolling ...
  • Sorry I was out of the country for a few days and didn’t check this forum. With electronic shutter there is no blackout. There is a bit of stutter in mechanical shutter. I have mostly been ...
  • I have never charged my R6 with anything else but the charger from my M1 MacBook Air. I use a battery grip most of the time so it’s just easier to charge in the camera.
  • We went in Cabo a few months ago and I took my R6 with the RF 100-500. I also took another body with a short zoom and never even turned it on. The 100-500mm was perfect.
  • Compared to my R6 it seems noticeably better. I can go out for several hours of bird shooting and take 1500-2000 shots (all in bursts) and not be close to needing to change batteries. I frequently ...
  • Here is one at ISO 3200 that I took with the same lens and body combo as the OP yesterday. SOOC JPEG.
  • No blackout with electronic shutter. Some with the mechanical shutter but it’s not bad.
  • Replied in R7 SOC Jpegs
    For what it’s worth here are 3 SSOC JPEGs from my R7 with the RF 100-500mm. ISO 6400 ISO 6400 ISO 4000
  • Replied in RF 800 f11 ?
    I think it’s great for certain use cases like your Kingfishers and Bee Eaters. I don’t have one now. I bought an R6 well over a year ago in a package that included the f11 600mm. I wanted the ...
  • I have an R7 that I got a few days ago. I have shot 6-7000 images. I have an OM-1 coming July 13th (rental). I am a former M43 shooter (Panasonic G9) who bought a Canon R6 on impulse to check out ...
