Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless talk hots up

He says in the video the IS is better because the lens works with the body - combination IS. What does this mean technically speaking?

IS from the lens plus digital stab from the sensor (so there is a bit of crop).

Regarding Rolling Shutter. I advice against judging it by reports from people looking at the back of the camera display instead of actual footage.

The BMPC4K is a Global Shutter incapable of rolling shutter artifacts. But on the back LCD it has massive Jello when panning.

I'm getting one too. NDs are tough to pass up. The touch bar looks fantastic too. I like the ergos a lot and you can tell they put a lot of thought into the video side. Mind you I don't need 4k 60p. If I did I'd be waiting for Pana.

I think this camera is enough to hurt Sony, given the similar price point and giving the camera just enough pro video features. For a lot of people the C-Log and focus features will be enough to make them go with this over, say, a A7iii.

Sony is feeling the heat I bet.

If the A7siii has a 20mp + sensor so it can take good stills, it will get interesting. That camera wont be in the same price range though.

The digital IS on my 6D is decent but I never use it. Mainly because EF lenses IS, as well as Nikons VR can easily rival IBIS for hand held shooting imo.

On the 5Dmkiii I could handhold 200mm with IS and on the D750 I was at 120mm all the time. Nice and smooth.

For vintage glass or to get the floaty look is of course a different story. So I'm hoping for stabilized primes like the 35mm f2.

The C-Log and focus features are definitely interesting. Do you know how the manual focus guide works?

If this camera was less than 2 grand, I’d probably give it a go, but at $2300... I’m just not sure.

"The ND Slot EF Adapter is very interesting and will be particularly useful for us as video and time-lapse shooters. The ND slot has options for a variable ND filter or a polarizer. We tested the Variable ND Filter shooting a time-lapse and slowly turned the ND wheel while the sun went down in order to maintain a correct exposure. This is a lot easier than trying to adjust aperture, shutter speed or ISO between exposures on the camera itself. Using the variable ND for video is also a killer feature. It means you don’t need to swap variable ND filters between multiple EF lenses (or buy multiple ND’s for all lenses) as it all happens on the adapter itself. The ND Range is ND3–ND500 or the equivalent to 1.5–9 stops. This Is a massive range and will work great for video as it can go all the way down to 1.5 and equally good at 9 stops for shooting long exposures. The option to drop in a polarizer is also super handy. "

This is where they set themselves apart for me. You add autofucs with this and what more do you need. Iam just not clear if it is internal clog?

Answering myself - clog is internal.

Thanks, that adapter sounds amazing. Do we know the price of the adapter yet? It would be great if Canon made an RF-FD ND adapter. With the manual focus aids, FD lenses could be killer on this camera.
