Equal Time for Chaol and more photography time with the Canon EOS R

So I got a complaint from my dog Chaol yesterday that I was spending to much time photographing Capella. In fact she stayed in bed all morning moping. I promised I would do a photo session with her after I made breakfast for kids, and their lunches and dropped them off at school, she agreed and we did a paw promise.

Taken with the Canon EOS R at 100 ISO using the 24-to 105 f4 lens. The aperture was 4 hand held at 1/4 of second. The Painting in the background is by the famous artist and friend John Moore. Chaol was not happy with the shot and told me that Capella’s photos was more regal. So we are planning another shot soon.

Considering I was hand holding at 1/4 and her face is still sharp is pretty good. The lens has an image stabilizer to prevent shaking but for some reason the new Canon EOSR does not have a body stablelizer like it’s competitors Nikon, Sony, Lumix etc..I imagine Canon will be coming out with another update of their Mirrorless camera by the end of the year, probably a professional version that will have the stablizer in the body. Even still pretty good for hand holding the camera.

The other thing I noticed the EOSR does not have is a duel slot for two SD Cards, like its competitors, which I imagine it will down the road. Thus far I really like the functionality of the is camera. I like the LCD Screen the pulls out and you can rotate it 360. This is all new to me and I am exciting about all the different perspective I will be able to shoot my subjects without contorting my body. What really impresses me is how I can focus on the screen and push down on the screen to take the photos.

I am shooting in the all the modes for control, because I am a controlling kind of person when it comes to photography, I am not sure about the rest of like. I did notice their A+ mode which is amazing with focus, ISO, color balance etc…and combine that with silent shooting and you can go completely stealth…Street photographers would love this function…
