  • You don't :).  Max rate is 20fps.  You'd need an R3 for 30fps, but you shouldn't shoot in a Gym with electronic shutter bc of flicker unless you want to tune the anti-flicker settings.  Best to ...
  • Don't forget that the Winter Olympics will open in February 2022 in Beijing.  If I recall, they released at least the 1D Mark IV around the Winter Olympics.  I remember gawking at the photos of ...
  • You may be right.  This has always been "common knowledge" around these lenses.  I'm not an electrical engineer.  USM motors do not use DC current like an STM stepper motor.  They work by ...
  • Yet the 1DX III had the same Digic X processor (only 1, not 2) as the R5 and R6 and certainly drives big whites faster.  The only thing left is higher voltage unless Canon intentionally crippled ...
  • I have a few, but I think my biggest gripe is how bad initial focus acquisition on severely defocused subjects is compared to the 1DX II.  If you have focus close, it will jump on a person or a ...
  • I am also a wildlife/bird photographer and will likely be buying an R3.  I do have an R5 and an R6.. will be keeping the R5 for the situations where I need to crop heavy.  The R5 is a fantastic ...
  • As far as Sony goes, keep in mind that their camera division came about when they bought Minolta.  Minolta's big lenses were white as well.  I'm sure there was a technical reason for Canon and ...
  • Replied in EOS R3 due?
    Sony doesn't have CPS, and that's why Canon still dominates this space.  As far as the other things go, I guess we'll see.  Since most every reviewer has commented that the R5 matches Sony A1 on ...
  • Replied in EOS R3 due?
    Well, they hit more than they miss.  If you watched the event on the 29th, it sure looked like it was geared toward a new sports camera, but at the end Canon ended the presentation early.  I ...
  • Replied in EOS R3 due?
    The answer to your question is... it depends.  Canon has always placed products between it's competitors, with the exception of the 1 series.  Is the R3 an A1 Killer?  Probably not.  It likely ...
  • Eye AF is great, but not magic.  The bird in this photo is too small in the frame.  You have a gray bird in a gray tree that takes up a tiny portion of the frame.  If the bird had filled up lets ...
  • Size wise you're correct... it's close.  But it's just not the same.  I have grips on my R5 and R6 and they're great for what they are but integrated grips are just better.  I miss them from my ...
  • That's exactly what I plan to do.  R6 will be going up for sale as soon as the official announcement is made.   R5 will become the backup to the R3 ... unless they do something stupid like make it ...

  • I agree.  Considering the price difference and better AF performance the R5 is the clear winner here.  I'm having enough trouble culling through 20fps.  With all that said, I can't wait to see ...
  • I have both.  The R6 is cleaner out of the camera than the R5.  There are some who say that if you downsample the R5 files it's about the same at high ISO, but that feels like more work.  Also, ...
  • When you are focusing your camera lens is wide open.  As soon as you activate the shutter the lens stops down to your intended aperture.  This is so maximum light is available to focus.  Use the ...
  • What I'd like to see is a grip that will use LP-E19 batteries from the 1DX III.  I miss those big batteries from my 1DX II.  Nikon does this and it is fantastic.  Might even give the big whites ...
  • Sure it is... you just have to really want it.  Just need a setup that allows you to block the wind (so long as it's not coming straight at you and it doesn't appear to be doing that in these ...
  • It seems that this is a problem with all animals of that type.  I had a hard time with eye AF on Elk.  It is clear that animals with this shape head (horses, deer, elk, etc...) haven't been added ...
