Canon EOS R Review (for Filmmakers, YouTubers & Vloggers)

Canon EOS R Review (for Filmmakers, YouTubers & Vloggers)

In this video I review my experience testing the Canon EOS R for filming videos. I share my thoughts on the 4K crop, the quality of the 720p slow motion files, using this camera for vlogging, how to turn it into a mini cinema C200, and pontificate about the future of Canon’s mirrorless cameras.
