Still looking for a Christmas gift to yourself? Last month, I had a chance to try one of Canon’s first full frame mirrorless camera, EOS R.
It was an interchangeable lens camera with built in EVF; its DIGIC 8 processor which enables the camera to support its features such as in-camera Digital Lens Optimiser, and also enhances its Dual Sensing IS, and Combination IS provides up to 5 stop image stabilisation for 30.3 megapixel stills and 4K UHD videos.
What I like using Canon EOS R is the crispness of each photos that I took using RF 70-200mm f/4.0 lens. It’s lighter than other cameras that I’ve used. Still in awe on how a dim area in one of the concerts that I attended makes it vibrant when I took the shots in burst mode.
Also, if you’re on the go like me, this sleek camera’s ergonomically designed weather resistant magnesium alloy body which provides reliability. It’s also a dust, and drip resistant!
Here’s some of the photos that I took. Zoom in and mesmerize how every image are detailed in its crispness.
