Canon EOS R | Just About Everyone Got It Wrong

I’ve read and watched most reviews of the Canon EOS R, and man, what an echo chamber. The online review game has gotten really lazy.

If you didn’t know any better, you would think the Canon EOS R is a complete failure and a disaster, especially when you compare it to a similarly priced Sony A7III.

I’ve been shooting with the EOS R for a few weeks now dissecting its performance and capabilities so that I can share with you all the pros and cons of this camera and how it compares to my beloved Sony A7rIII.

In the meantime, here is what just about every camera review got wrong!

Panasonic LX100 II Review & Sample Photos

The Panasonic LX100 II is a pocketable compact 17 megapixel micro four thirds camera with a 24-75mm f1.7 to f2.8 variable zoom lens. It shoots 4k video at 100Mbps and features a toggle aspect ratio switch to change the area used on the sensor. 

The LX100 II sensor is a 21 megapixel micro four thirds sensor, but the camera only utilizes a maximum crop of 17 megapixels at any time to allow for different aspect ratios for different situations.

Fujifilm X-T2 vs Fujifilm X-T3 | ISO and Dynamic Range

There has been a lot of discussion around the Fujifilm X-T2 vs the Fujifilm X-T3 regarding low light performance and dynamic range.

For my tests, I waited for Adobe Lightroom to support the X-T3 since that is what most people use. I did not want to use some funky software to put out bogus results for the sake of being first to the scene.

So here we are, tests from Adobe Camera Raw.

Fujifilm X-T3 Review & Sample Photos

For the last few years, APS-C digital photography has been battling the war of relevancy, trying to find its place in photography among enthusiast and professionals. Some people love APS-C, for others, it’s just not good enough.

In this Fujifilm X-T3 review, I’ll be going over a few things you don’t see most people or reviews talking about. I won’t dive to deep into the nitty-gritty of the specs, rather we’ll take an in depth look at what X-T3 is really all about; the user interface, how you can customize camera output and the experience of using it, with some beautiful specs sprinkled on top of course.

Fujifilm X-T100 | First Impressions

It’s been a rough month with a hurricane then a tropical storm, then a new baby, then my daughter having a crazy fever for five days, a heat wave and now I’m sick. Needless to say, I haven’t had too many chances to go out and actually shoot with the Fujifilm X-T100, but I have shot with it enough to have a very strong opinion about it.

Here are my thoughts.

Nikon D850 vs Sony A7rII – Sensor Comparison

You’ve probably seen a lot of comparisons between the Nikon D850 and the Sony A7rII or A7rIII these last few weeks, comparing sensor sharpness, dynamic range or low light performance. But they often make one critical mistake, they don’t use the same lens.

So to compare both cameras, I wanted to use the same lens. To do this, I employed an old and very sharp Helios 44-4 58mm lens that I have adapted to both cameras and shot using the exact same settings.

GoPro Hero6 vs Hero5 | A Huge Improvement!

When comparing the GoPro Hero5 to the Hero6, on the outside it doesn’t look like much has changed. Even looking at the specs, it doesn’t seem like there are any huge updates after this one year cycle. Higher frame rate and video stability at 4k are not that big of a deal to a lot of people, especially if you already have a Karma Grip.

However, when you get both cameras and put them side-by-side, you’ll immediately notice huge improvements with the Hero6! Huge! I’ll list just a few.

Canon 6D II Review | This Beauty Is A Beast!

The Canon 6D Mark II is the new “entry-level” full frame camera from Canon and it’s a beast! Shooting with the 6DII was the most fun I’ve had with a full frame camera in a long time. Partly because of its full frame sensor, partly because the camera has a lot of great features that you just don’t find in many full frame cameras, like the vari-angle touch screen.

Canon SL2 (EOS 200D) – First Impressions

I don’t do a lot of reviews on cameras I don’t own, but recently I had the Canon SL2 for a weekend and was so impressed by the way it shot and felt that I had to take it out for a day of shooting.

Here are my initial impressions. 

Fujifilm X100F – A Real World Review

The X100F is Fujifilm’s new masterpiece and the fourth addition to the famous x100 line of cameras. The X100F seems to have taken the biggest step forward of any of the X100 camera upgrades with a new 24MP sensor and new battery for improved life and performance. Not only that but the X100F is also a autofocusing beast.

It’s what I consider the most versatile fixed lens camera money can buy and a street photographers dream come true.
