Canon EOS R users complain of fragile top screen and lack of 60p with EF-S lenses!

BBC interview with Executive VP of Canon Europe. Go to 4 mins 08 seconds.

It’s been a rocky reception for the EOS R. Even the BBC have been giving Canon a hard time over the ‘too little, too late’ approach. Now it’s time for some of the most loyal Canon users to use the camera ‘in anger’… Literally.

They are finding out the hard way it has some major issues.

First look at the Fujifilm GFX 50S – could this photo behemoth get RAW video like Hasselblad H6D-100C?

If I told you Fujifilm had a full frame mirrorless camera system to compete with the Sony A7R III, a lot of people would sit up and notice. However the GFX 50S is a medium format camera, and these don’t really register on the same radar screen as others.

Fuji X Pro 2 review – a Leica killer. Also a surprisingly capable Super 35mm cinema machine?

Leica are really going to after pro video shooters with the SL.

Meanwhile RED are persuading medium format photographers to use a 6K Dragon or Weapon.

A gap in the space/time continuum captain?!

Step forward the next specialised tool to turn camera-chameleon: the Fuji X Pro2.

Fuji X Pro 2 video quality a huge step up – hands on with the final hardware, pre-production firmware

Download original files here (note: pre-production firmware).

I am really pleased to say the video quality of the X Pro 2 is seriously impressive. It’s not 4K but it’s enormously satisfying, sharp and detailed.

What’s great is that now we can finally shoot moving images with Fuji’s superb film-like colour science, without having to worry about image quality.

Canon 5D Mark IV “will be 1080p” with Canon LOG

I received an email from a NAB show visitor today who had spoken off the record to Canon and was told the company believes a 4K 5D Mark IV would completely overshadow the recently released C100 Mark II and so wouldn’t happen, but that Canon LOG would likely go into the camera to allow shot-matching with the XC10.

So to segment specs based on price, Canon is allegedly sticking to 1080p on future DSLRs. The exception is the 4K XC10 which isn’t a competitor to the C100 Mark II or C300 Mark II as it features a tiny 1″ sensor and fixed camcorder-style zoom lens by comparison.
