  • Created discussion thread A7S III shutter sound/feel
    Hi all! Just wondering, for anyone who has the A7S III: how is the shutter noise/feel? Is it well dampened? I've been using the R5/R6 recently, both of which have insanely well dampened shutters. ...
  • The R5's 120FPS 4K mode plays back and comes out of the camera at 30FPS (4x slowmo). There is, in fact, no way to set it to anything else.
  • No experience with the EF 35 but I wanna +1 the RF 35. Not the fastest focusing lens in the world, but MAN is it a fun walkaround lens, especially with the close focus ability. I've taken some of ...
  • Question for anyone who has had hands on with the Z6ii -- how is the shutter sound? I'm a current R6 owner shooting sideways glances at the Z6ii + a 50 1.8 s, but one thing I never liked about the ...
  • If this comes in at a reasonable price (around $1,400, let's say), count me in! Very excited.
  • The difference as I experienced it was mostly to do with cropping and/or zooming way in. Both cameras are bitingly sharp. They both have that magical, "okay, that is *crisp*" quality to the ...
  • I owned an R5 for about a month before switching to an R6, which I've now also owned for about a month. In short, I think the R6 is an exceptional camera -- certainly the best value for money body ...
  • They are very thoughtfully designed cameras, and they do a lot of things right that are difficult to quantify and/or not often talked about in conventional camera reviews. Things like startup ...
  • Same experience here. I owned an R5 for a month before exchanging it for an R6. I did not know about the body differences until relatively recently, and was surprised to learn that the R6 ...
  • Hi Dmitrii, I no longer have my R5 (switched to the R6), but my RF 35 was basically glued to it, and while I did not always have perfect focus (and in fact had several shots where I thought, "hmm, ...
  • Normally I am not one to cry "faulty unit!" because I think lots of cameras have annoying quirks that reviewers/early buyers tend to minimize or gloss over, but this seems to me like a faulty ...
  • Give me a tough-as-nails R7 with the R5/6 AF and no compromise on ergos for between $1,500 and $2,000 and I'm in.
  • I totally respect everyone in here who has said they're disappointed, but as someone who spent a full month with an R5, now owns an R6, and came from high end Nikon SLR's... I'm just not "feeling" ...
  • It is wonderful. IQ is stunning across the board when you don't clip (and even sometimes when you do!) You just get almost no recovery as soon as you cross that threshold. For me, it would by no ...
  • It was by no means a dealbreaker for me on the R5, especially considering how incredible every other aspect of the IQ was. Just required some adjustments to how I shot! And while I have found the ...
  • I was shooting RAW, initially converting to DNGs but also went back and looked after the .CR3 update to the Adobe Creative Cloud. I don't know much about the sensor testing data but I shot Nikon ...
  • I used the R5 for about a month and realized that all the stuff I valued most about it -- the ergonomics, the autofocus, the IBIS, the general responsiveness -- was identical across models. The ...
  • I owned an R5 which I later exchanged for an R6. To me, both feel remarkably similar in the hands in terms of "build quality" (which is admittedly a pretty subjective characteristic when you're ...
  • I go to Canon's site and follow all the steps and get the following error message on a separate 404 page: "Referral Denied You don't have permission to access ...
  • I have owned both an R5 and an R6 and both (of my cameras, at least) exhibited this phenomenon in low light. FWIW, I have experienced this on basically every EVF I have ever used, from Fujis to ...
