    Canon's Crop-Sensor powerhouse

    I purchased the Canon EOS R7 to supplement my larger full frame Canon camera bodies, specifically the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R3. The R7 has a more compact form factor and is super light at 1.35 lbs with the battery. The crop sensor gives 1.6x more reach using my RF mount lenses when compared to the full-frame models. I appreciate that extra reach when shooting wildlife. With the 18-150mm IS STM kit lens, you have a nice walk-around combo that is both light and versatile. From wide angle to Zoom this kit lens is decent but of course will not match low light and optics of a “L” series lens. The camera comes with a LP-E6NH battery which is the same battery used in the Canon R5 and Canon R6. To date there is no Canon branded battery grip for this camera to add a second battery but you can shoot all day long with a single LP-E6NH and stay lightweight. I owned the Canon 7D Mark II and in comparison, the mirrorless EOS R7 is quite the update. The camera has 32.5 megapixels which surpasses the 17.3 megapixels that I would get with my EOS R5 in crop mode. This Digic X image processor produces fantastic images. Canon has made massive improvements to the autofocus. There are two features that make this camera a good buy for the price. The first feature is eye-tracking. You can toggle in the setting menu between people, animal and vehicle. You will see the focus box on the viewfinder or LCD lock in on nearest eye with a half press of the shutter. I like the menu layout of Canon and find it extremely intuitive. I setup the Mymenu option to have shortcuts to each of the settings that I am likely to change often like subject detection, eye detect, drive mode. Etc. I like that the LCD “Articulates” so you can flip it around to protect it or use it to shoot at views other than eye level. The second feature that makes this camera a buy is IBIS. The In Body Image Stabilizer allows you to shoot handheld in situations that would require a tripod in the past. The IBIS can work in tandem with RF lenses that have Image Stabilization built in as well. This camera will work with existing Canon RF lenses and RF-S lenses that are geared more towards this crop sensor. There are only a couple of RF-S lenses that the time of this review but I suspect that many more are in development. Also, if you are moving up from a Canon DSLR with the EF or EF-S mount, you can purchase a Canon mount adapter and use your existing lenses. The camera uses UHS-II SD cards which are convenient. The UHS-II SD will help when changing the drive mode from Single shoot to multi-shot. UHS-II will allow for more continuous shot before need to wait for the buffer to clear. Since the camera has dual card slots, you can pick from options to give you extra redundancy if a card should fail. I like to save my work with JPG file format since it is versatile to one card while sending RAW files which give you more details for editing in post. You can shoot up to 30 frames per second when using the electronic shutter and 15 when using the mechanical shutter. 15 frames per second mechanical even exceeds the speed of the EOS R3. The electronic shutter offers the ability to shoot silently which can be handy with certain wildlife. The can be helpful when shooting in public to draw less attention and to avoid camera noises at a live performance. The camera has nice video options as well. You can shoot video in 4K at 60 frames per second oversampled from 7K. At this price this is an excellent entry into the Canon mirrorless market and a great second body or “B-roll” body if you are more focused on video. This camera has the updated Canon multi-function hotshoe found on the Canon EOS R3. Canon sells new accessories such as the DM-E1D stereo mic that will get power directly from the new mount. Of course, the mount will support an external flash as well. The mode dial to the right of the viewfinder offers automode as well as Aperture Priority when you want to control “bokeh” or background blur and Shutter priority if you want to freeze time or prefer to show motion in your photos. It has options for BULB, Manual and custom as well. The EOS R7 has all of the connectivity options that you could need. USB-C, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. So does this camera match up to the EOS R5 or R7? It does not but offers many of the same features at a great price point. There are times when I will reach for the R7 for the extra reach over the full frame Canon counterparts. I find the smaller form factor and weight a nice alternative when traveling. I do prefer the button layout on the full frame camera but that is likely since I am more used to them and have developed muscle memory. The combination of the control wheel and joystick are usable. I recommend this camera and if making the choice between this and the R10, I would go with this model if possible, for IBIS. IBIS is a real game changer. This is a great primary camera or backup camera. I feel that it is a great gateway camera for a beginner or amateur photographer. This camera has a well-rounded feature set that will make it a go to for professional photographers in certain situation. When you make your purchase remember to register with Canon to get notification of future firmware updates. I also like to carry a second battery. The included camera strap is comfortable and on brand. I am pleased with my purchase. Canon has hit a home-run at this price point. This is the best crop sensor camera that I have owned. Thank you for taking the time to read my review.

    Ungodly Good Autofocus - Love the R7

    Bought this as a b-cam for Canon C70, live theater videography, where the most important feature is no recording limit. Hopefully the days of 30 minute recording limits are over. I've used it on two shoots so far - two act theater shows, and was able to record over two hours of theater with bars left on the battery and no overheating indicator at all. I've also used it recreationally to get action photos of our dogs at the local dog park and that is where this camera really shines. Ungodly autofocus; I mean I've never seen anything like this. I've barely lifted the camera to get shots of multiple dogs playing and the AF just instantly locks onto the dogs eyes, and sticks like glue. There is no camera I've ever used that even comes close. Canon has everyone beat when it comes to autofocus. Still in the early days of using this camera, but it's a keeper. The only downside is no available external battery grip. My other b-cams - two EOS-Rs - both have battery grips attached and they never come off. With the battery grips you just never need to think about battery life at all. Oh, I also was pleased to find that the DC power attachments for the EOS-R work with the USB-C on the R7 to give it an easy power backup. With those attached, the R7 battery indicator just greys out and you're set for AC power for as long as you need. Well done Canon.

    Canon R7 is a great camera

    The Canon R7 is a great camera for the money. It has a superb autofocus system and is user friendly. The 18-150mm lens is a good all purpose lens.
