The Canon EOS R is Canon’s debut in the full-frame mirrorless arena. It’s got outstanding image quality that’s so good, you can essentially consider it a mini-5D4. It feels right at home performance-wise among fellow full-frame mirrorless systems like the Nikon Z7Sony a7R III, and Panasonic S1. What sets the Canon EOS R apart from the competition is the stunning ambient light custom white balance video color produced in-camera. Even at depths up to 70 feet, the Canon EOS R produces video color that requires little to no correction in post - a spectacular feat for any camera. However, these results don’t come without some compromise in the control set, operation, and execution.
