I don’t have the full scoop on the New Canon EOS R5 Mirrorless, but I do know this…
I want one!
I don’t even know all the specs yet, but between the features that Canon has announced, and the ones that reliable sources have leaked, I’m thinking it’s time for a new body! (Note: Don’t tell my wife. This is just between us. It’s a secret. Etc.).
Now, I don’t know what it costs (if Canon said how much they’re charging, I missed it), so there’s still a big question mark out there, but I’m hoping it’s priced right (so, basically not in the 1Dx III price range).
You had me at two card slots!
Not really (gotcha!). Seriously not a big deal to me whatsoever (I thought all the hand-wringing about the EOS R not having two slots was really overblown), so if it has two slots. great. I’ll probably leave one empty, and I don’t even know what type of cards it supports yet anyway). And the 8K video? I don’t shoot video, so it doesn’t help me one way or the other, but it seems a lot of people are really psyched about that.
What I do like is the very fast frames-per-second rate; the higher megapixels; the good possibility of a sensor with improved dynamic range, the IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization), and there are still more features yet to be announced. OK, I’m in. Ya know, in theory — still doesn’t know what it costs.
Shout to out San Diego and Phoenix
Great turnouts in both cities (thank you guys), with almost 550 photographers coming out for the two days. I met a ton of great folks; really had a lot of fun, had a great dinner with a buddy in San Diego’s Little Italy section, and got to see some more friends in Phoenix. Thanks to everybody that came out spend the day with me. Next stops: Houston then Los Angeles next month. I am having so much fun on this tour — I can’t wait!
Well, that’s it from here in the Delta Sky Club at Phoenix Airport’s Terminal #3. Got a red-eye home tonight at 11:25 am. Zzzzzzzz!
Have a happy Valentine’s Day (don’t forget your sweetie), and a great weekend. :)
