Administrators Andrew Reid Posted June 14, 2021 Administrators Share Posted June 14, 2021 So one can be snapping merrily away in Aperture priority mode for stills and then with a quick, easy, 6 turns of the mode dial through 5 different positions you are suddenly in video mode with completely different exposure settings. No aperture priority mode. No shutter speed priority mode. This of course means you need a variable ND filter to adjust exposure on the fly or if you lack one of those you have to play with the shutter speed manually with big notchy transitions and the sound of a wheel going CLLIIIIICK during a documentary shoot. Canon mirrorless cameras are now far beyond the fag end of the ancient technology they squeezed out of their arseholes for nearly a decade of disappointing DSLRs and 4K crops. So it can't be an engineering thing to remove aperture priority exposure from video mode on a £2500 4K/60p 10bit 422 full frame camera. In fact Canon seem to be pulling out all of the stops to establish their overpriced new lenses and want us to invest in those, enticed by the amazing specs of the cameras. The EOS R3 looks amazingly well spec'd albeit naturally at the uber expensive end of the market with a charmlessly Toyota-like blandness to it. The problem is that Canon keeps making it frustrating and expensive to enjoy their new lenses. Because they cannot resist a good slam of the CRIPPLE HAMMER.
