Canon EOS R Arrived

Capella our 19 year old cat is my first subject with the Canon EOS R

It was a snowstorm, Fed-X was 3 hours late with the delivery of the Canon EOS R and RF 24-105 F4 L IS USM but what fun I had when it arrived…

I was off to the races and opened up the box. I am a Canon Professional Service member and asked to borrow the new Canon EOS R Mirrorless camera to try out. When I took the camera and lens out of the box I knew this was the future of the DSLR…I glanced at the instructions and just started shooting intuitively.

It was a disaster at first and I had to compose myself and go back to the basics, where are the controls. The first thing I fell in love with was touch screen focusing. All I had to do was touch the screen where I wanted to focus and BAM!!!! it’s in focus. Then I tried manual and stumbled to find the aperture and shutter controls and BAM!!! that was easy…I have only had it about an hour and now I have to run and pick up the kids,,,so I will get back to my comments about a full frame mirrorless camera later so stay tuned…

I will be using the camera this weekend to shoot some images for the book on lighting and hopefully I will be shooting the cover this Monday …I have the perfect model and a great location..but in the world of photography until it happens it doesn’t exist…
