    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    I thought it had ibis for a moment during the first shoot yesterday. As above, 300mm 2.8 tack sharp at 1/30th sec in low light, what the heck? I read somewhere the connection to lens stabilization is improved somehow and certainly seems to be the case.

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    I'm really impressed with the eye-tracking (v1.4 firmware). Easy to move between faces and eyes, and it's very sticky as they move around.

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    I have only canon EF glass. At today’s event i used the R with 300 2.8 for speakers on a dark stage then 16-35 f4 for group pics afterwards. Both worked very well. With the 300 I had usable shots down to 1/30th sec. the frame rate is quite slow so I’m not giving up on the 1DXii just yet...

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    Managed to pick up an R second-hand today from someone disappointed with the performance of an adapted sigma long lens. First impressions very good. The eye-tracking in particular.

    Canon lense advice

    To answer your initial question my experience is that the 18-135 is a great lens for anything well lit. In low light it will likely be disappointing so the usual next lens addressing that is to think about is the 50mm f1.8 which lets in lots of light and is very reasonably priced.

    Thanks Bob, lady on the wall is my favorite of the set too. Not posed, too good an image not to take.

    I have the 50R and 100 and for my shooting, typically low light, it's a big improvement.

    Battery powered location strobe recommendations?

    I’m still having good results with the older Godox AD600, very handy to have in the field

    Which photo please?

    Try asking a different way? In terms of proportions 16x20 is 4x5 maybe that’s what you’re looking for? As above I’m also curious to know what’s the message of the image?

    Family photoshoot indoors.. help please!

    As above, yes wrong equipment if you want to get a family group all in the frame in limited space. A couple of other thoughts - you may be tempted to shoot wide open, however be careful as the depth of field may mean some of the faces in the group will be out of focus. Second, and related is...
