Review: Canon EOS R3. Simply brilliant.

My, how it has evolved. In 1989 Canon released the venerable – some would say landmark – EOS 1, a 35mm single lens reflex camera. Then in 2001, everything changed and the 1 became the 1D, a digital version of the EOS 1, and it was still a benchmark.

In my particular field, motorsport, 1Ds were everywhere, and anyone who was a published rev head snapper would own at least one. Certainly with my Canon XL1 camcorder, I was the odd one out!

But now we have the Canon EOS R3. So, as a replacement – sort of – for the 1D, how does it shape up?


The first thing you notice is that despite a magnesium alloy frame and rubberized body, this camera is weighty. My test model came with a 50mm lens, and that combo weighed almost as much as my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro WITH a Smallrig cage AND an Aputure AL-M9 light attached!

Have no fear though, as the ergonomic wizards, realising this, put not one but two hand grips on the R3 so that no matter you are holding it horizontally or vertically, there is sufficient holding power.

Of course, the heart of any digital camera is its sensor (some argue and say it’s the glass baby, the glass, but that’s another story). The EOS R3 has a full frame CMOS sensor with 24.1 resolution. The image ratio is standard 3:2 35mm and naturally, all this is held together by the tried-and-true Canon DIGIC X processor.

As you’d expect from a camera of this stature and pedigree, image stabilisation is built into the body with, depending on the lens used, up to 8 stops of shake.

Moving right along, we now look at the autofocus options, and the word that springs to mind is “impressive”. The Canon engineers have really stepped up to the plate here as along with all the other “normal” AF functionality you’d expect, the R3 sports an updated version of a unique Canon piece of magic called “Eye Control AF Technology” which is a fancy pants way of saying that camera will focus where you are looking.

It was in the EOS 1D Mk3, but from a mate (Ross Gibb from Ross Gibb Photography) who has both an 1D Mk3 and on the R3 he says it is vastly improved.

The immediate scenario that springs to mind for me harks back again to my motorsport shooting. In that game, you learn the ability to have one eye on the viewfinder and the other looking out – along with the tell-tale sound of tortured tyres – for some mishap or other. With this new technology, theoretically, you can simply swing the camera toward the source of the sound and never have to refocus manually.

But in practice, Ross says in the field, it is not yet totally reliable – and besides it would make it all too easy!

You can use the 3.2” LCD touch screen for focus too. It’s a vari-angle screen meaning it swivels and lifts allowing viewing from many angles.

The rear of the body is amply populated by buttons and dials for the various control options, as is the top of the camera, and the ergonomics are superb. Even with my currently somewhat gammy right wrist, I could reach all controls easily without stress, and despite the weight of the R3, it actually doesn’t FEEL heavy in operation.

The Canon EOS R3 also doubles up as an impressive communications device. Built in is 802.11ac Wi-fi, Bluetooth 5, USB C, ethernet and even a GPS. Ross Gibb tells me that in a real situation, using the app (Android, iPhone or iPad) is all you need to get the images off the CFAST / SD cards (there are two slots).

You can shoot in either JPG, HEIF or RAW at up to 12 fps mechanical and 30 fps electronic, with ISO speeds from 100 to 102,400 and you have 24.1 megapixels to play with allowing up to 6000 x 4000 pixel images in RAW mode.

If you are into the video side, there is also HDMI and 3.5mm headphone and mic jacks. Shooting is possible in 6K at 60p, 4K at 120p and full HS at 120p.

Canon says battery life should be good for up to 800 shots which is certainly impressive in itself. In video mode, this would very much depend on the shooting mode used of course.

Image Quality

In a word, brilliant. Cannot fault it. That is all there is to say about that. And that’s why, if you are a pro, you’d buy this camera. Because make no bones, unless you are an amateur with a lazy $8.5K hanging around, that is who this camera is aimed at. The person that doesn’t look at the price per se, but at the whole package of image quality, reliability, functionality and ergonomics.


Whilst I was not there (sadly) I can think of no better test of a camera of this calibre than in its natural habitat; the conditions at the Bathurst 1000 last weekend were brutal, with rain, mud and everything else you can think off thrown at the photographers. And yet Ross Gibbs’ EOS R3 (he uses L series lenses with an adaptor) he says, performed without missing a beat.

That is testament in itself methinks.

Review: Canon EOS RP (with an MSM Star Tracker)

It seems like forever since I did a proper camera review, but here we are. In the past I have mainly concentrated on camcorders and video cameras and so-called “action cams” or looked more at the video capabilities of mirrorless and 4/3rds models, but over the “COVID Break” and due to popular request (and responses from surveys), I have decided to branch out and look at cameras such as the Canon RP we have here.

But rather than just as a still camera, in this case (and another camera I’ll be reviewing very soon), I am putting it through its paces in special circumstances; using it with a wide and fast lens to capture images of deep space.

The Camera

Let’s look at the physical aspects of the camera first.

The Canon EOS RP is a lightweight (440g body only), full frame mirrorless unit that shoots up to 26 megapixels. It supports 4K video and natively has a RF lens mount.

In my case, I requested and got and EF-EOSR mount adaptor in order to run the 16mm – 35mm f/2.8 lens I wanted for the star shoots.

On the rear is a swing out, rotating 3 inch monitor with 1.04 million dots, and this is supplemented by a 0.39 inch EVF with 2.36 million dots.

The RP sports a combination stabilisation system and the auto focussing has over 4500 possible positions. Wi-fi and Bluetooth are both supported.

The ergonomic layout is pretty much Canon standard with a rotary dial on the left along with the shutter release, lock, movie shoot button, main dial thumb wheel, mode wheel, and multi-function button. On the left is the on/off switch next to the hot shoe.

The rear of the body has a menu button at top left, and the right hand side an AF and AE lock button, a multi-purpose magnify/ reduce/ AF point button, info button and a navigation button / arrow combination. Beneath that are playback and delete buttons.

Access to the battery is via the bottom of the body of the Canon EOS RP and this also holds the single SD card slot.

On the left-hand side underneath rubberised flaps are a 3.5mm mic port, a remote terminal plus mini HDMI and USB ports.

As I said, pretty much standard fare.

By the way, for the star shooting, a remote terminal and controller is almost mandatory due to the long shutter times used.

The lens I am using is, as mentioned, a 15-35mm f/28 USM which required an EF to EOSR mount adaptor. Once this was installed and the lens attached to the camera, all that was needed was to attach it to the MSM mount setup on my Manfrotto tripod.

MSM Mount

I have had the MSM mount kit for a few weeks now and still coming to grips with the best way to set it up as there are a number of possibnilities. The major problem is we are in the Southern Hemisphere, and the mount has to be calibrated to a pole star to work properly ie: to follow the rotation of the Earth at the correct speed and inclination.

In the Northern Hemisphere they have the Pole Star, but here we don’t have such a thing. This is where the PhotoPills app comes in. This shows a “virtual” sky on your smartphone or tablet letting you align the camera to the south pole. This then allows the mount to track successfully and stop getting any star trails (unless that’s what you want of course).

The second part of the problem is that due to our location and the direction of the rotation of the Earth, the mount and camera can have a nasty habit of unscrewing themselves over time. Subsequently, whilst in the Northern Hemisphere taking long duration shots over a 10 or more hour period is not unheard of, I have no intention of trying that here and having a loan EOS RP end up on the ground (or my Canon 5DS for that matter!)

So I am waiting for a clear night when I can get a series of 1 minute shots – about 30 of them, maybe more – I can stack and then with the magic of the stacking software, Deep Sky Stacker to start with, hopefully get images similar to this.

The MSM mount itself is made up of a series of components as you can see. The main rotator has two points where it can be mounted. One on the large side (which I am using here) but it can also be tipped at 90 degrees.

This is sitting on a Wedge mount attached to the tripod letting you change the inclination of the camera when attached.

On top of the MSM rotator is a ball mount and the camera is attached to this.

On the rear is a bracket to mount a smartphone so you can use the PhotoPills app in situ to set the orientation to the south pole correctly. You also get in the MSM kit a green laser, but here that is pretty useless for the reasons mentioned. In the Northern Hemisphere you would use this to align to the Pole Star.


Due to the nature of the MSM Rotator and its accessories, there are a number of ways you can mount your gear. Some people use an optional Z mount as against the wedge, but after much chopping and changing over the weeks, this method seems to be the best for what I want.

The Canon EOS RP and 16-35mm lens sit perfectly and are well balanced for the task at hand. Now we wait for some clear night(s).

Thankfully here in the West (I am 200km south of Perth) we have mainly had these so I am hopeful over the next 24 – 36 hours we can put the Canon EOS RP to work.

Stay tuned!



Canon EOS R3 Update

Following Canon Inc.’s initial development announcement of the EOS R3 – its latest high-performance, high-speed professional mirrorless camera – more details have been revealed today confirming it marks a new era for sports, wildlife and news photographers.

Canon says it is committed to achieving the impossible, and claim this camera is no exception. Today, new specs they say, prove the EOS R3 takes object-tracking to another level – adding Auto Focus (AF) tracking for motorsports including racing cars and motorbikes. In addition to this, ideal for filmmakers, the EOS R3 can record oversampled 4K video.

Following the April development announcement, here’s some of the freshly revealed EOS R3 specs to be aware of:

Capture fast-moving subjects in pin-sharp focus, with ease

Professionals following moving objects around the frame will enjoy the EOS R3’s ability to keep them in pin-sharp focus – even when shooting RAW at 30fps – thanks to Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. Alongside the people and animal (including birds) AF tracking technology found in the EOS R5 and EOS R6, the EOS R3 is perfect for motorsports photographers – with its ability to track racing cars and motorbikes. And when light conditions get tough, the camera can focus in extreme darkness at light levels -7EV or lower[1].

Supporting Canon’s unique Eye Control AF technology, which enables professionals to select the AF point with only their eye, the EOS R3 is an extension of any photographers’ creativity – reacting quickly in the moment to capture the shot. In low light, the EOS R3 offers up to 8-stops of protection against camera shake[2] with Canon’s revolutionary combined Image Stabilizer (IS) technology. The camera’s sensor-shift IS works in tandem with the optical IS built into many RF Mount lenses, for a result that lets professionals shoot handheld in very dim light or while using long shutter speeds to intentionally blur movement. 

High-quality RAW at 30fps

At the heart of the EOS R3 lies a brand-new back illuminated stacked CMOS sensor, working together with Canon’s high-performance DIGIC X image processor. Today, Canon can confirm it will capture quality RAW files at a staggering 30fps with full AF/AE tracking. The breathtaking speed of the camera’s new sensor also transforms what can be done with an electronic shutter. Flash sync is now possible with the electronic shutter when used with external Speedlites, and rolling shutter distortion when shooting fast-moving subjects has been reduced.

Oversampled 4K and RAW recording abilities

In addition to its next-level still photography capabilities, the EOS R3 is suited to those looking to capture high-quality video. The camera will record oversampled 4K, or users can record RAW footage internally. Canon Log 3 is also available to provide professionals with greater dynamic range and colour grading possibilities. Crucially, the same object recognition available to stills photographers is also available to videographers, so filmmakers can track fast-moving objects around the frame, keeping them in sharp focus.

Built for professionals

Built to withstand the rigours of day-to-day professional use, the EOS R3 will have a tough, magnesium-alloy body featuring dust and weather resistance to the same level as Canon’s legendary EOS-1D X series – ensuring it can cope in toughest. Dual card slots allow image files to be written to SD or CFexpress memory cards. The camera is powered by a high-capacity LP-E19 battery – the same as the one found in Canon’s EOS-1D X Mark III cameras – enabling professionals to use and share batteries between cameras that they may already have in their kitbag. The camera will also offer a choice of controls with both multi controller and smart controller – for completely intuitive operation. Offering three customisable dials on the body, plus a Lens Control ring on each RF Mount lens, this allows shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and exposure compensation all to be easily adjusted while the camera is at the photographer’s eye. The EOS R3 is also equipped with a Vari-Angle screen letting professionals compose easily from creative perspectives.

Advanced connectivity

As a camera intended for leading sports and news shooters – connectivity is vital. Offering a built in Wired LAN socket and 5GHz Wi-Fi[3] allowing communication with computer networks, laptops and mobile devices, professionals can share images quickly and easily. As previously announced, the EOS R3 is also compatible with the Canon Mobile File Transfer app. What’s more, the EOS R3 will feature a new accessory shoe which provides data communication and power for new accessories when attached to the camera.

EOS R3 key features announced as of today (2 June 2021) are:

  • New Canon-developed back illuminated stacked CMOS sensor
  • 30fps with AF/AE tracking
  • AF tracking of people, animals (including birds) and motorsports (racing motorbikes and racing cars)
  • Can record oversampled 4K, or RAW footage internally and Canon Log 3
  • Eye Control AF point selection
  • Capable of focus in light levels -7EV or lower[4].
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • EOS-1D series dust and water resistance

New Canon EOS R5 and R6 models announced

Canon has been extremely quiet of late with new releases.

I don’t recall physically seeing a new camcorder as such since the HF G40 (or if there has been we haven’t been privy to them, indded a quick check of the Canon Australia website shows  we haven’t  reviewed the XA35, XA30, XA50, XA55, XF705, HF G50, XC10 or XC15 in the current range … or the flagship C300 for that matter). SO now, we are attempting trying to redress this situation as we speak.

But I digress. There is a lot of technical bumph to wade through below, so I’ll keep it short initially.

Canon has just announced two new cameras / camcorders (as the distinction is now so blurred there is little point in separating them).

The EOS R5 and EOS R6 are a pair of new mirrorless models that utilise the RF mount. Here is the press release(s).

The pro-level EOS R5 delivers 45 megapixel stills at up to 20fpsvi and is the first full frame mirrorless ever to record 8K RAW up to 29.97fps internally and 4K to 120pvii.  Canon suggests the EOS R6 is perfect for enthusiasts and professionals moving to mirrorless and looking for greater capabilities, capturing 20.1 megapixel stills up to 20fpsviii, 4K video up to 60p and Full HD at up to 120p.

The EOS R5 and EOS R6ix are both supported by Canon Australia’s local 5-year warranty and are available for pre-order from todayx.

Next generation CMOS sensor technology combined with high performance RF lenses enable users to capture new levels of detail at the best possible speeds in the industry. EOS R5 and EOS R6 can shoot up to 20fpsxii xiii with the electronic shutter in near silence with full auto exposure (AE) and auto focus (AF) tracking. Users can be confident capturing action, both stills and video, in exceptional quality in any location without disturbing subjects. The mechanical and electronic first curtain shutter also delivers high-speed continuous shooting up to 12fpsxiv.

For the first time in the EOS series, EOS R5 and EOS R6 incorporate 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilizer. Designed to work collaboratively with the Optical IS system of RF lensesxv, the solution has been engineered so that RF lenses and the sensor work to correct pitch and yaw with the sensor correcting X-Y and roll movements. This intelligent stabilisation system corrects at up to an incredible 8-stops – the world’s best image stabilisationxvi – for new levels of creativity when shooting handheld at slow shutter speeds or filming without a tripod.

The wide diameter of the RF Mount ensures that light continues to reach the entire sensor all the way to the corners, even with the sensor movement introduced with In-Body Image Stabilizer. The 54mm diameter enables RF lenses to be designed with larger image circles facilitating greater movement of the body IS system, meaning some non-IS RF lenses such as the RF 85mm F1.2L USM or RF 28-70mm F2L USM can also achieve up to 8-stopsxvii of image stabilisation.

Users of EF lenses will experience enhanced IS performance as in-body IS works with IS enabled EF lenses to provide roll and X-Y correction. Even select non-IS EF lenses will benefit from the 5-axis correction provided by EOS R5 and EOS R6 in-body IS.

Keeping it sharp

DIGIC X processor technology at the core of EOS R5 and EOS R6 – the same technology in the coveted EOS-1D X Mark III – supports renowned next generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF II pushing speed and reliability to unmatched levels. Boasting the world’s fastest AF focusing speed among interchangeable lens digital mirrorless cameras, EOS R5 focuses in as little as 0.05 secondsxviii and can focus in light levels as low as -6EVxix. EOS R6 is the first EOS camera to offer a minimum EV for AF of – 6.5EVxx. The high precision AF is effective in even poorly lit or low contrast shooting conditions.

The iTR AF X AF system has been programmed using algorithms and face/eye detection mode ensures subjects are kept sharp even when moving unpredictably with a shallow depth of field. Even if a person turns away for a moment, their head and body continue to be tracked.

Advanced tracking enabled by algorithms recognises faces and eyes of humans, and now includes cats, dogs and birds in both still and movie modes. EOS R5 and EOS R6 maintain high-precision focus and tracking regardless of the subject’s size, posture, orientation or direction of the face helping users to confidently shoot even the most unpredictable subjects.

Intelligent connection

With built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, the EOS R5 (5Ghz Wi-Fi) and EOS R6 (2.4Ghz Wi-Fi)xxi can be easily connected to a smartphone and networks allowing high-speed file sharing and FTP/FTPS transfer.

This functionality also allows for the cameras to be remotely controlled using the Camera Connect and EOS Utility apps, tethered to a PC or Mac via Wi-Fi or high-speed USB 3.1 Gen 2. With content delivery just as important as image and video capture, the EOS R5 and EOS R6 support automatic transfer of image files from the device to the cloud platform to easily share and print images or integrate with Google Photos or Adobe Cloud workflowsxxii.

EOS R5: No compromise. Revolutionary imaging innovation.

2_Canon EOS R5_BK_FrontSlantLeft_RF-24-105mm_F4LISUSM

For the first time, Canon has given the iconic EOS 5-Series name to the EOS R Mirrorless system with the EOS R5. The EOS R5 is an unprecedented leap forward in mirrorless technology and offers the highest resolution EOS cameraxxiii ever. The DIGIC X processor, CMOS sensor and RF lenses combine to advance all aspects of image quality to achieve a resolution up to 45 megapixels. Achieving up to 100% AF coveragexxiv, capable of 5,940 user selectable AF points and featuring an ISO range of 100- 51,200, EOS R5 keeps subjects razor-sharp even in extreme low light conditions. Dual-card slots support a high-speed CFexpress and SD UHS II card, housed in a weather resistant magnesium body.

Professionals can capture stunning 8K 12-bit RAW video internally using the full width of the sensor for a truly cinematic result with continuous eye and face AF tracking for people and animals. The EOS R5 also sets new standards for videographers shooting in 4Kxxv. Capture 4K DCI (full frame) and 4K UHD at frame rates up to 120p (119.88fps) with 4:2:2 10-bit quality, enabling high resolution,

smooth slow-motion with full AF performance. Users seeking the very highest 4K quality can use the 4K HQ mode to reproduce incredible detail at frame rates up to 30pxxvi by internally oversampling 8K footage.

  • 8K RAW internal video recording up to 29.97fps (non-cropped)
  • 8K internal video recording up to 29.97fps (non-cropped) in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265) or 4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265)
  • 4K internal recording up to 119.88fps (non-cropped) in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log (H.265) or 4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ (H.265)
  • 4:2:2 10-bit in Canon Log or 4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ output via HDMI at 4K 59.94fps

User demand sees the return of the multi-controller to EOS R5 in addition to touch and drag AF using the 3.2inch vari-angle touch screen with 2.1 million dot resolution. With Dual Pixel RAW also supported, correction of the focus and contrast in the background and changing the lighting in portraits is possible after capture – enhancing creative possibilities. The 0.5inch electronic  viewfinder (EVF) refreshes at 120fps with 5.76 million dot resolution for a staggeringly realistic view of the world comparable to an optical viewfinder.

With one Super UD lens and six UD lenses, the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM effectively suppresses chromatic aberration and ghosting/flare across the entire zoom range for high-resolution, high- contrast image quality from maximum aperture. In addition, featuring 5-stop IS, or 6-stops when used with EOS R5 and EOS R6v, the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM achieves improved images for shooting handheld at long focal lengths or using slower shutter speeds.

Featuring Dual Nano USM AF motor technology, the telephoto zoom lens boasts accurate and high- speed autofocus quietly, ideal for capturing wildlife and uninterrupted filming. Furthermore, Canon’s innovative floating focusing system allows for improved close focusing down to 0.9m.

As standard with the RF lenses, the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM features a programmable Lens Control Ring on the barrel, allowing photographers to change settings without taking their eye off the viewfinder. The adjustable torque zoom ring enables the zoom action to be made tighter or looser to suit the photographer’s needs, making it a perfect companion for those on the move. Being a L-series lens, the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM also features Canon’s renowned weather sealing, enabling the lens to be used in most extreme conditions.

RF 600mm f/11 IS STM and RF 800mm f/11 IS STM – impressively lightweight super-telephoto lenses A great affordable and lightweight choice for enthusiast photographers, the RF 600mm f/11 IS STM and RF 800mm f/11 IS STM are new concept lenses offering super-telephoto focal lengths, allowing photographers to capture far away subjects in stunning detail. With a minimum focusing distance of metres (RF 600mm f/11 IS STM) and 6 metres (RF 800mm f/11 IS STM), enthusiasts can get close to subjects while maintaining great focus. The lenses capability to capture the action from afar with AF and IS capabilities is extended when used with the EXTENDER RF 1.4x and EXTENDER RF 2x. With such extenders, several impressive focal lengths can be achievedvi – the longest being 1600mm when the RF 800mm f/11 IS STM is used with the EXTENDER RF 2x.

Both lenses are equipped with an optical Image Stabilizervii and support Dual Pixel CMOS AF when paired with a Canon EOS R System mirrorless cameraviii. This combination of features allows these super-telephoto lenses to deliver pin-sharp images – even when shooting without a tripod or monopod – as motion blur caused by camera shake is drastically reduced.

Lightweightix and compact, the lenses are shining examples of the possibilities of Canon’s RF Mount. Using Diffractive Optics, combined with the RF Mount and a fixed f/11 aperture, both lenses highlight Canon’s excellence in optical technology innovation. Having been completely re-thought and redesigned, both lenses are significantly smaller and lighter compared to existing Canon EF super telephoto lenses. Equipped with a retractable barrel structure, the lenses easily extend in use and retract to be stored neatlyx. This makes both lenses ideal for travelling photographers who have minimal kitbag space.

Boasting STM technology, both lenses offer extremely quiet and perfectly smooth focusing – excellent for video recording, as the lens operation noise is kept at a minimum. Adding to its ease of use, the Lens Control Ring on both the RF 600mm f/11 IS STM and RF 800mm f/11 IS STM gives enthusiasts direct and speedy control over Tv/exposure compensation/ISO/AF operationxi settings. The lens’ fixed aperture also provides a perfectly circular bokeh and their large focal length enables photographers to blur the background sufficiently when photographing subjects in the distance – an excellent characteristic for animal portraits as subjects stand out more.

RF 85mm f/2 MACRO IS STM – picture perfect portraits

Designed for enthusiast portraiture photographers, the lightweightxii RF 85mm f/2 MACRO IS STM is ideal for capturing stunning shots with an attractive perspective and soft background. Coupling an f/2 aperture with full frame provides shallow depth of field for excellent results – even in low-light conditions.

Review: Canon EOS M6 Mk 2

It’s not often these days a Canon camera passes our door, but last week Canon sent me a new EOS M6 Mk 2.

Being mirrorless, the EOS M6 Mk 2 is halfway between a full on dSLR and a compact. It has its own range of EF-M lenses, but with the addition of an adaptor, can also take advantage of the massive choice of EF lenses available too.

The sensor is a monster; 32.5 megapixel APSC dual CMOS type that can shoot 30fps RAW in a high speed plus burst mode and 14fps RAW continuous with focus tracking.

When shooting video, it shoots 4K 30p either cropped or uncropped and full HD allows 120p for slo-mo. For stabilisation, the M6 Mk2 has both optical and electronic versions.

Wi-fi and Bluetooth are built in letting you control the M6 Mk2 via smartphone or tablet.


If you remember my review of the Fujifilm X-A7 a few weeks back, the biggest black mark in my book was for the lack of a viewfinder. Canon has circumvented this somewhat. Out of the box there is no viewfinder.

On the surface.

Keep opening the package though and tucked away in some bubble wrap is an electronic viewfinder that slots into the top hot shoe, that Canon says also doubles up for accessories such as a Speedlight or external mic. Of course if these are added, then the viewfinder becomes a moot point.

A pop-up flash is mounted next to the hotshoe by the way.

If you chose to use the 3” LCD panel, which in bright sunlight was not too bad I have to say (another one of my pets I admit); this one doesn’t twist and rotate but is top mounted on a Z-bracket letting it lift out and tilt up or down through a full 180 / 45 degrees making it suitable for “selfies” or as mentioned, vlogging.

A dedicated switch has been added to toggle between Auto and Manual Focus which is a nice touch. Under side panel covers are hiding USB-C and mini HDMI ports and audio in and headphone ports.

All other functions and switches are pretty as much as you’d expect as you can see from the photos.


I took the EOS M6 Mk 2 down to the beach on a windy overcast day for a quick test. Straight out of the box and in full auto mode, colours and textures were true, and all things considered as only the internal mic was used, the audio wasn’t too bad (although in the real world you’d add something like a Sennheiser MKE400).

The EOS M6 Mk2 was easy to use, controls were logical and the menu / touch screen system was up to Canon usual top standard.. The only thing I would like, and Canon is not on their Pat Malone in this area, is much better indication you are in recording mode.

The LCD in sunlight wasn’t that good you could easily see the tiny red dot and timecode.


If you are stepping up from a smartphone for photography and want a better than capable camera without going the full hog of dSLR but that will equally be happy as a top-shelf vlogging camcorder, or want a standby camera to supplement your EF lens based dSLR, then at $1699 you’d never call the EOS M6 Mk 2 inexpensive.

But it is damn good, and in my opinion, worth that money and all the functionality and connectivity you could want is there. My review model came with a 15mm – 45mm lens which covers a multitude of sins in photography and videography environments and as mentioned of course the Canon party trick is that huge range of Canon and 3rd party lenses available.

New Canon EOS 1D X Mark III (updated)

Canon Australia today launches the ultimate interchangeable lens camera, the EOS-1D X Mark III, offering professional photographers, videographers, and content creators limitless possibilities, at blistering speeds. Boasting dramatically improved AF tracking performance, image quality and communication capabilities, the camera represents the pinnacle of Canon’s EOS series. Enabling moments to be captured like never before, Canon’s new flagship camera enables incredible shooting speeds of up to 20fps with AF tracking, the ability to shoot in complete silence[i], and features improved high ISO performance. The EOS-1D X Mark III’s AF sensor sports 28 times the centre resolution of its predecessor to address professional photographers’ need for greater accuracy and focusing on subjects in a wider range of scenarios. What’s more, the camera offers impressive 5.5K 12-bit RAW video internal recording – the first non-cinema Canon EOS series camera to have such feature – allowing professionals to capture top-quality video as well as stills. To ensure uncompromised performance in harsh environments, the EOS-1D X Mark III comprises Canon’s EOS-1 Series trademark build-quality, reliability, and weather sealing features and will also be backed by Canon Australia’s 5-year manufacturer warranty[ii].  

The EOS-1D X Mark III has been developed using feedback from the worldwide community of EOS-1D X and EOS-1D X Mark II photographers. Canon’s rich heritage in optical excellence shines through in professionals’ feedback during testing, praising the EOS-1D X Mark III’s step-change in autofocus, dramatically improved image and video quality and speedy communication abilities – all features which allow professionals to achieve breath-taking images and deliver them to clients – faster than ever before.

Unrivalled autofocus to achieve ‘the shot’

Based around the Canon EF mount, with more AF lenses available than any other system, the EOS-1D X Mark III features a new AF system and sensor. This Canon-developed technology enables enhanced stability and tracking giving professionals a new level of flexibility and accuracy when photographing subjects in various conditions.

In the ever-competitive professional photography industry there is no room for images of blurry subjects. With a new AF sensor, the camera provides 28 times the centre resolution of its predecessor and three times the number of AF points[iii], delivering unrivalled precision and giving photographers even greater image choice of pin-sharp shots. Partnered with a dedicated DIGIC 8 processor, focusing on subjects in a wider range of lighting is made possible – conditions which would see lesser-quality AF systems fail to capture ‘the shot’ in focus. In addition to focusing accuracy in low light, the camera is ideal for photographing low contrast, patterns, fine detail and diagonal lines – all of which were previously difficult to capture.

Programmed via deep learning, the camera’s AF system can identify human subjects in a range of sporting situations, bringing them into focus – at high speeds – with newly-developed advanced subject tracking system. With this deep learning capability, the camera will lock on to a subject’s head or face – the primary place of focus for the human eye when looking at images – even in situations when the subject’s eyes are covered by the likes of helmets and goggles. A new Auto AF case setting has also been incorporated in the camera to tune the AF settings to match the subject, making setting up the AF system easier than ever before. This is ideal for professionals photographing subjects which occasionally maybe blocked.

Limitless creative opportunities

Thanks to its new Canon developed DIGIC X processor, 20.1 Megapixel sensor, mirror system and shutter, the EOS-1D X Mark III gives a competitive edge – achieving industry leading speeds of 16fps[iv].

Essential for world-class sporting events and animals in the wild, the optical viewfinder provides photographers better connection to the subject, with clear and bright lag-free viewing. In Live View mode the camera can shoot at 20fps with mechanical or electronic shutter with full AF, further extending creative opportunities.

To achieve such fast frame rates, Canon’s innovative technology reinvents the SLR mirror system. With Canon’s mechanical engineering superiority at the heart, the camera features almost zero mirror bounce – meaning its mirrors return to their positions as quickly and as precisely as possible, directing light to the camera’s AF sensor to take a reading faster than ever before.

Next generation imaging standards

The EOS-1D X Mark III is Canon’s first camera to feature its next generation imaging sensor, supporting faster readout and lower noise. This addresses professionals’ request for a low-noise, high-performing DSLR. The camera’s 20.1 Megapixel Full Frame CMOS sensor also offers Canon’s widest ISO range yet. With the extended settings from ISO 50 to ISO 819,200, the EOS-1D X Mark III further provides professionals with the flexibility to capture clear photographs in various conditions.

Thanks to the increased noise handling abilities of the EOS-1D X Mark III’s sensor, professionals can alter the exposure of images in post-processing without noise affecting the dark areas of the images, providing even more usable dynamic range than previous models. The EOS-1D X Mark III is the first camera to the market to use a revolutionary new High Detail Low-Pass Filter, which samples the light point over a greater number of points to achieve sharper and higher resolution images while preventing moiré. It is also the first EOS model to support the HEIF (High Efficiency Image File Format). This next generation format, based on the HEVC codec, enables images with 10-bits of data to be saved in a file the equivalent size as a JPEG while suffering less compression artefacts. The camera also uses the next generation of memory cards, CFexpress, providing write speeds over three times that of that previous fastest CFast cards and making shooting bursts of over 1000 raw images possible.

Meeting the demand for high-quality video

Thanks to its new sensor and processor, the EOS-1D X Mark III is now Canon’s most advanced video product with interchangeable lenses outside of the Cinema EOS series, offering 4K Full Frame and supporting 12-bit RAW internal recording. The EOS-1D X Mark III is the first non-cinema Canon camera to feature RAW recording, providing an expansive range of colours and tones which can be extracted in post-production for superior image quality. In addition, video can also be recorded as 12-bit CRM file at 5.5K (5472×2886), allowing very detailed oversampled 4K footage that meets the demand for high-quality video.

The camera can also record using Canon Log Gamma, captured as a 10-bit HEVC/H.265 file, giving professionals multiple editing and unlimited creative possibilities. Addressing the need for speed, the EOS-1D X Mark III supports file recording in a MP4 container for fast transmission of files. What’s more, the EOS-1D X Mark III is also the first EOS-1 series camera to support Movie Digital IS which provides 5-axis stabilisation to cope with a wide range of movements. This is a feature seen in high-end Canon cinema cameras like the EOS C500 Mark II.

Using the EOS-1D X Mark III, Dual Pixel CMOS AF is supported in 4K and RAW mode[v]. When coupled with Movie Digital IS, professionals can have confidence their movie image footage will have pin-sharp focus and be steady whatever the condition or scenario; perfect for impromptu video opportunities.

Content delivery at competitive speeds

Keeping pace with shortening deadlines and addressing professionals’ needs for seamless and speedy content delivery, the EOS-1D X Mark III is the first EOS-1 series camera to feature built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The Wi-Fi can be used for FTP or connecting via EOS Utility as well as connecting to a smartphone. Its Bluetooth connectivity uses the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol, providing a constant connection to a compatible smart device while requiring minimal battery power. This is ideal for long shoot days. By opening Canon Camera Connect, the EOS-1D X Mark III automatically connects to compatible devices[vi], allowing image review, sharing, and remote Live View shooting with a single tap.

With inbuilt GPS, professionals can capture location data to images which is particularly useful for travelling sports photographers and exploring wildlife photographers. The camera transfers data faster than the speed of the EOS-1D X Mark II when using the built in ethernet, or the new optional wireless file transmitter – the WFT-E9. Coupled with simpler network set-up, it greatly enhances professionals’ workflows.

An extension of professionals’ creativity

Allowing seamless navigation with trusted ergonomics, existing EOS-1D series users will be comfortable handling the EOS-1D X Mark III. Its magnesium alloy body offers the durability expected from Canon’s EOS-1 cameras, capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions via phenomenal weather-sealing. The EOS-1D X Mark III also makes shooting in dark or dimly-lit conditions easier with light-up buttons; a feature added directly due to professional feedback. Several buttons on the camera illuminate when the display light button is pressed, making identifying the various buttons much easier and offering limitless shooting possibilities.

The camera also provides additional control for selecting AF points built into the AF-ON button, allowing photographers to change AF points on-the-fly for the best composition and further simplifying their toolkit. Professionals can also benefit from dramatically improved battery life – with the same LP-E19 – enabling them to shoot 2850 shots per charge and reducing the chance of missing ‘the shot’ when changing battery.

The EOS-1D X Mark III will be available from Canon’s online store and official Canon retailers from February  2020, with pricing set at dealer discretion. The EOS-1D X Mark III will be supported by Canon’s 5-year manufacturer warranty, with additional support provided to Canon Professional Services (CPS) members.

Having been a bit slow, Canon catches up.

Having been a bit slow to the full frame mirrorless market, Canon has decided it is time to join the party dominated pretty much so far by Panasonic and Sony.

Sure, like the EOS R (which we are reviewing as we speak), the new EOS RP announced today is not in the 4/3rds clique, but nonetheless, with Canon’s formidable reputation and marketing clout, the EOS R / RP combo will garner a whole new breed of fans who might otherwise been welded to the Canon EOS dSLR only brand.

Which is a LOT of snappers and videographers indeed, make no mistake.

And maybe on the way, through, pick up some new fans – which is what I guess they are hoping for. Time will tell.

So what does the EOS RP offer? SO far, we can only go by the press release, so here is what it says in condensed version. Note there is no pricing as yet.

As Canon’s smallest, lightest[ii] full frame digital interchangeable lens camera to date, the EOS RP provides the ultimate blend of practicality and ease of use with impressive image quality. The EOS RP also allows photographers and videographers to explore and utilise Canon’s full portfolio of EF and EF-S lenses.

Today, Canon also announces the development of six new RF lenses for release in 2019, including the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM – the perfect travel companion – practical in both size and performance. It is a versatile all-purpose lens for the advanced amateur photographer or videographer offering a range of focal lengths for capturing extraordinary shots.

“The latest addition to our revolutionary EOS R portfolio and aggressive lens development roadmap demonstrate Canon’s commitment to redefining photography and filmmaking,” says Brendan Maher, Product Manager, Consumer Imaging, Canon Australia.

“With a heritage of more than 140-million EF and RF lenses behind us, these new innovations mark an exciting new phase in Canon’s optical leadership.”

Enter the full-frame world of EOS R

The EOS RP is an affordable yet advanced camera in Canon’s full frame line-up. Offering next-generation full-frame optical performance with the potential to explore future RF lenses, such as the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM, the EOS RP features the innovative RF Mount with its high-speed 12-pin communication system, short back focus and wide 54-mm mount diameter.

Built from the ground up, the RF Mount provides lenses with new levels of optical performance, responsiveness and functionality. Photographers and videographers can also experience the full performance of their existing EF and EF-S lenses thanks to three EF-EOS R adapter options, with additional functionality when using the control ring or drop-in filter adapter.

Supporting creativity with silence, speed and quality

The EOS RP’s 26.2 Megapixel full frame CMOS sensor, coupled with Canon’s latest DIGIC 8 processor, offers a creative step-up with the optimal balance of detail, control over depth of field and incredible low-light shooting performance. Optimised for low-light conditions, the ISO 40,000 ­­– expandable to ISO 102,400 – works alongside the powerful Dual Pixel CMOS AF system to enable photographers to shoot in dark environments as low as -5 EV[iii] with confidence.

With an emphasis on achieving optimal clarity straight from the camera, DLO (Digital Lens Optimiser) correction is applied in-camera to RF lenses and up to five EF lenses when registered in the camera. For post-editing options, the EOS RP offers the latest generation CR3 14-bit RAW file format, alongside a compact RAW option to save approximately 40 per cent on the file size of standard RAW files. This increases the number of images that can be stored on a memory card while retaining the flexibility of shooting with RAW. For instant editing, images can be processed in-camera with Creative Assist offering a range of filters, effects and controls that make it simple to obtain the desired result for instant sharing.

EOS handling, no compromise

Portable and practical, the EOS RP is Canon’s lightest and most affordable full-frame digital interchangeable lens camera launched to date. In a body weighing just 485g[iv], it is great for travel when space and weight are at a premium. Engineered to shoot in a range of situations, the camera is built around a magnesium alloy chassis with high precision outer body parts, including sealing materials to provide dust and moisture resistance. Versatile in its usage, the EOS RP offers a powerful Dual Sensing IS system that reduces camera shake for handheld photography, and a silent shooting scene mode for unobtrusive performance.

A continuous shooting rate of up to 5 frames per second (fps), or 4 fps with Servo AF, combined with a UHS-II card slot, gives an unlimited[v] buffer when shooting JPEG or RAW files – enough for capturing action when travelling. The EOS RP’s familiar EOS handling is both easy, familiar and comfortable to use with the flexibility of customisable controls, scene modes and a graphical menu interface – great for adapting to different skill levels, when shooting either stills or video. The well-designed, EOS-style grip, high resolution 7.5-cm Vari-Angle touch screen and 0.39-type OLED electronic viewfinder inspires next-generation handling with full creative framing and tactile controls at your fingertips – from menu options to the point of focus.

The EOS RP is compatible with a range of EOS accessories including the Extension Grip EG-E1 – which also launches today – for added comfort, and the Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI with AI bounce (launched in February 2018).

Focus on every detail

The EOS RP takes a no-compromise approach to autofocus with Dual Pixel CMOS AF offering an AF speed as fast as 0.05 seconds[vi] and accuracy with up to 4779 selectable AF positions over a wide frame area of up to 88 per cent x 100 per cent. The EOS RP’s electronic viewfinder (EVF) – with 2.36 million dots and approximately 100 per cent coverage of the scene – allows great shots to be captured and previewed in challenging and diminished lighting. Touch and Drag AF is one of the four methods that makes it easy to control the focus area while framing using the viewfinder or simply touching the LCD screen.

For impactful portraits, Eye AF with continuous tracking focuses on the subject’s eye when in Face Detect mode, making it easy to achieve professional results and critical sharpness every time. Whether capturing moving subjects for stills or videos, the EOS RP can track the subject continuously to react to the action in the frame. For extended depth of field for macro shooting, focus bracketing allows for stunning depth of focus to be achieved ensuring ultimate sharpness. With a single press of the shutter, the mode continuously shoots with a range of automatically adjusted focal positions.

Digital Photo Professional for PC or Mac can then be used for depth composition, creating a final shot which is in focus over the desired depth of field. Spot AF provides precise focusing when taking macro shots. Other AF modes include Face AF, 1pt AF, Expanded AF and Zone AF – providing flexibility for a range of subjects.

Shoot, share and stay connected 

Thanks to smart Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity for shooting and sharing, the EOS RP allows users to control their camera from their smart device to shoot images or video remotely via Wi-Fi. This is advantageous to avoid distracting the subject or to get a creative edge, whether observing animals or achieving a remote or unique angles in-and-among sporting action. Once downloaded, the Canon Connect App gives full control over camera settings, a live view and even the option to wake-up the camera remotely over Bluetooth. When connected to compatible iOS or Android devices, the EOS RP can embed GPS coordinates into images allowing photographers to keep a record of their travel locations. For sharing while on the move, the EOS RP can automatically synchronise images to a smart device, as well as transfer RAW data to the Canon DPP Express app for mobile editing.

Make high-quality, 4K movies on the go  

The EOS RP delivers freedom and possibilities for videographers looking for a portable and easy-to-use camera. With its DIGIC 8 processor, the EOS RP can capture movies in up to 4K resolution at 25 fps and Full HD at 60 fps. With features including 4K time-lapse, interval timer, Movie Servo AF and HDR movies, users can capture fast action and slow-motion sequences as well as achieve an expanded dynamic range. Dual Pixel CMOS AF[vii] enables accurate focusing and face detection, while Movie Digital IS provides 5-axis movie stabilisation to counteract shake when footage is captured handheld. The microphone and headphone jacks help to capture and monitor audio in real time, while the Vari-Angle touch screen makes it comfortable to shoot at a variety of angles. The Video Snapshot function is a simple way to create a video summary of a travel adventure, combining 4, 6, or 8-second clips to give a digest of memorable events and scenes. An easy to manage codec enables a swift editing workflow and reduced file sizes for storage.

New: Canon EOS Mirrorless 4K Body and Lenses

We obviously haven’t seen one as yet, so for today’s major Canon announcement, all we have is the press release. I have been through it and removed the “PR speak” so you can get the guts of what this new EOS R system is all about.

As soon as we can get one, I’ll get our resident Canon expert, Stephen Turner, to put it through its paces and give his verdict.

Press Release (Edited)

Canon Australia has today launched the EOS R System. More than thirty years on from the era-defining EOS launch, the new EOS R System will enable image makers to rethink the way they see and capture the world. Featuring the all-new RF lens mount, the EOS R System has been engineered from the ground up to achieve a blend of optical, mechanical and electronic design – creating a system that is revolutionary.

The EOS R System launches with four lenses offering combinations of quality, speed and functionality that were previously impossible: the RF 28-70mm f/2L USM; RF 50mm f/1.2L USM; RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM; and RF 35mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM.

The new lenses use the RF mount, which enables a flange back distance of 20mm and a wide 54mm diameter. Moreover, the mount’s 12-pin connection enables enhanced communication and power transmission between the lens and camera body, further expanding lens design options to deliver higher image quality and enhanced usability.

All RF lenses will feature a customisable Control Ring to adjust aperture, shutter speed, ISO or exposure compensation, removing the need to break concentration by looking away from the subject. In addition, three newly-developed lens adapters (available separately) allow the EOS R System to inherit all existing system advantages, including full compatibility with existing EF (excluding EF Cinema) and EF-S lenses and accessories1.

Setting new standards of quality and speed, the RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is an extremely fast 50mm f/1.2 L-series prime lens offering extraordinary levels of detail, supreme sharpness, stunning shallow depth of field and remarkable low-light performance. TheRF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM is an L-series zoom lens and the first full frame Canon lens to feature Nano USM – ideal for filmmakers when smooth focusing is a must for natural-looking focus transitions, giving superb control and smooth tracking of the subject as it moves away or towards the camera. Slim and easy to handle,  the RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM also features a fixed f/4 aperture, while the fast, silent autofocus and 5-stops of image stabilisation make it perfect for movie making. Also announced is the RF 28-70mm f/2L USM, Canon’s first large-aperture full frame compatible standard zoom, offering f/2 brightness throughout the zoom range. This fast lens features a lens barrel with a shock-absorbing mechanism that achieves excellent impact resistance for toughness and durability. Lastly, the RF 35mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM is a super-fast 35mm f/1.8 macro lens ideal for street, travel and close-up photography, offering a naturally wide-angle perspective, close-up focusing and Hybrid IS.

70+ lenses at your fingertips

Three new EF-EFR lens mount adapters allow more than 70 EF and EF-S lenses1 to be used with the innovative EOS R System, adding new functionality to existing optics, while maintaining the excellent levels of performance and functionality previously seen with EOS DSLRs. The control ring mount adapter incorporates the control ring found on RF lenses to enable users to maintain their setup whether using RF or EF and EF-S mount lenses. The drop-in filter mount adapter offers the ability to use a range of drop-in filters (drop-in circular polarising filter or drop-in variable ND filter). Ideal for filmmakers and for use with lenses that are difficult to add filters to, the drop-in variable ND filter density filter controls exposure, while the circular polariser reduces reflections and enhances colour saturation. Additionally, a standard mount adapter simply enables lens attachment.

EOS R mirrorless camera – adding to the full frame family

Adding to the EOS full frame line-up, Canon has today unveiled the first camera body to carry the EOS R name and RF lens mount. The EOS R is very much a sum of its parts, offering a combination that redefines photo and video performance with image quality, state-of-the art connectivity, ergonomics and responsive handling. Canon’s first camera with the ability to focus in light conditions as low as EV-62, the EOS R continues to please with astounding autofocus speed (Canon’s fastest: 0.05 seconds) and totally silent shooting for use in any setting.

The EOS R brings together high-performance RF lenses, a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approximately 30.3 million effective pixels and the latest DIGIC 8 image processor, with almost every control on the EOS body customisable. As a first for Canon’s EOS camera series, the EOS R features a customisable multi-function bar, which can be personalised using a slide or touch motion for preferred settings such as ISO.

Familiar EOS ergonomics of comfortable hand grip and intuitive layout reassure professional and amateur users alike. Coupled with the weather-sealed robust magnesium alloy body, the setup and handling allow users to shoot for long periods with uninterrupted focus in the field. Designed for those on the move, always-on Bluetooth allows a smartphone to be paired with the EOS R and GPS data recorded in images. For additional creative capture, remote shooting via the Canon Camera Connect app offers freedom for flexible shooting.

Digital Lens Optimizer, which corrects factors such as lens aberrations, draws on the power of RF lenses to send correction data to the camera body, minimising impact on continuous shooting speed. In addition to Canon’s fastest autofocus, EOS R can capture moving subjects fast and accurately, with up to 8fps continuous shooting (fixed AF) and 5fps with AF tracking.

The EOS R has Touch and Drag AF, which enables intuitive selection of the impressive 5,655 available AF point positions. As Canon’s first camera to enable low-light autofocusing down to EV-6, the EOS R is optimised for low-light shooting thanks to the advanced Electronic Viewfinder (EVF), with 3.69 million dots, provides 100 percent coverage of the scene, making it possible to see subjects in accurate colour even in near-dark.

EOS R is a highly accomplished filmmaking tool delivering 4K video footage featuring full audio control, a vari-angle screen and manual focus peaking. Additionally, filmmakers can output in 10-bit over HDMI with Canon Log to capture footage in neutral contrast, with up to 12-stops of dynamic range at ISO 400. This allows post-production grading to extract every subtle nuance of colour and detail in shadows and highlights.

 EOS R accessories

In addition to the EF-EFR mount adapters, accessories for EOS R include a powerful and versatile battery grip. The battery grip, BG-E22, allows two high capacity lithium-ion LP-E6N batteries to be used and offers external battery charging via the PD-E1 USB Power Adapter, providing extended shooting and enhanced handling for the photographer, when used in the vertical position. For creative lighting options, the BG-E22 also features a PC terminal to allow a traditional wired studio flash to be used with EOS R.
