    Hi guys,
    possible to get some info/test whether the eye tracking improved as well with the firmware upgrade on the eos R?
    Thanks

    I have good news and bad news. The video was great. Bad news is that you’re pointing the microphone at your chest. That’s a large diaphragm condenser, I think the rode nt 1a. The pick up pattern is perpendicular to the body unlike a broadcast mic such as the re20 or the sm7b. It’s an extremely common mistake.

    Great review.
    Despite what others say on here, I agree there's nothing in it for me between these 2 cameras – both are excellent, and I'd be equally happy with either.

    Personal circumstances are very dependent deciding what camera is more suitable – and I'm still not sure myself which one I'm going to go for:

    Sony – has no interval timer / timelapse, which is something I do often use
    Sony – no flip screen is a weakness and I'm not talking vlogging. I always use the flip screen with my kids for fun selfies, and for fun family photo's when on outdoor trips
    Sony – ergonomics are not great. Dated even. Usability is high on my important list and this is nearly a deal-breaker for me. I'm not a pro. I need something that feels comfortable for my beginner/intermediate needs
    Sony – doesn't seem 'friendly'. I can't put my finger on why – maybe the menu's, the looks, maybe the feeling of using old technology with the lower resolution EVF/LCD
    Sony – the 2 SD slots have no advantage for me at all. Not interested
    Sony – tried and tested, and clearly a quality all-round camera. Video looks excellent.

    Canon – x1.8 crop on 4k video. So what? I don't see this as an issue. Firstly, I'd just adjust my position to cater for the crop, as you would anyway. Secondly, 4k is just so unwieldy due to the size, thus the majority of my shooting would be in 1080p. Sure I'd do a few 4k, but in those few cases I'd not be bothered by the x1.8 crop
    Canon – rolling shutter is worse than Sony. Although looking at the video comparisons, it's not that bad. If I did a lot of video this would be a deal breaker, however I do say 80% photos, 20% video
    Canon – poorer dynamic range, I'm guessing due to the inferior sensor. I'm undecided how bothered I am about this.
    Canon – image stabilisation actually looks pretty good on the video comparisons.
    Canon – only a few lenses, however the lenses launched are all I need initially. I'd be keen to get the 70-200mm telephoto. Having access to all the EF/EF-S lenses in the meantime is comforting
    Canon – poorer low ISO, but I guess I can correct issues in Lightroom, and I don't really get to the very low ISO's
    Canon – "no joystick", although not having ever used one I'm not sure it's something I will miss. I do get how it would be useful
    Canon – I prefer the look & feel of it by a long way
    Canon – $190 for a USB charger?? What? If a USB-C charger doesn't natively work, then the camera cannot really claim to be USB chargeable, or even "USB compatible"!
    Canon – EOS RP version very attractive option

    There is no outright winner in these camera's. Both excellent. Its perhaps about deciding which deficiencies to accept and live with.

    I'm wondering whether the RP version is a better consideration being cheaper, lighter and seemingly having a very similar spec.

    Thanks for the heads up I'm currently using a Sony RX10 MKlll and was considering going for the a7 lll or the Canon EOS R. Think you've made my mind up to go for the Sony, I'm used to their menus as well thanks Tony appreciated, great impartial video.

    I have soooooooo many EF lenses…I’m stuck with Canon. I can see the many limitations that the Canon EOS R has. As a videographer who reallly wants to make the next step: Should I really expend money in a Canon 1DX Mark ii for example? Should I just switch to a more affordable Sony model and say good bye to Canon for good? I currently own an “outdated” Canon 70D.

    I got a different message from this video than what you probably intended. What I learned is that cameras have gotten so good these days that really we compare their capabilities in more extreme specific scenarios than in the most practical scenarios. Obviously some will say that these are their typical scenarios but for the vast majority of others these limitations between the two cameras is a wash. It gives me great hope that I can continue using a 3 year old camera body for several more years since nothing that major has happened in the technology that necessitates the upgrade. Now if they make a camera that has an ultra sharp zoom lense that goes from 24-150mm f1.8 constant and is smaller than a coke can we will be in a new era of photography. Obviously this can’t be achieved by physics with current camera technology, but I believe one day there will be a way to do this and it will be a good day.

    Does the Canon mirrorless still produce the 'Canon look'? Don't know how to describe it, its a creaminess that is in both the bokeh and the picture's subject/front? Canon pics just have a 'something', I am settling for 'creaminess' but that doesn't really describe it. I can almost always pick out Canon pics, I'm almost always right. Its interesting, bec I know Canon came out last recently in a couple of color tests against Sony, Fuji, and Nikon. But, in those tests, even the pics that in theory beat the Canon did not have this creaminess. In fact, a couple of the Sony pics were almost so sharp they looked fake or cartoon-y. At least on my monitor. If anyone knows what I am talking about with Canon pics and is using the EOS R, do your mirrorless pics still have the Canon creamy look?

    Tony did you notice that in the Quick Video comparison you did between the two cameras the Sony III took twice as long to focus on your face and then on the puppet face. You said the III's video quality is better than the new Canon but it did not look significantly so to me, and the focusing could be a factor in video and then especially so in the stills which is really more important in many situations. BTW I learned from one of your recent podcasts how you had to morph your career when your corporate tech job was phased out. I have to say you seemed to have really found a GREAT NICHE with the Youtube Channel and the work you and Chelsea are so great at!! WE are all so lucky to have you both to learn from!!

    How did Canon mess this camera up SO badly?! All they had to do was purchase a few Sonys to do research!

    After returning to photography after a 15 year break I was blessed to try out both these cameras before deciding. The reviews I Read and watched all favoured the Sony, but I came to the conclusion that like other electronics most reviews and comments focused on raw the technology not the art. In my opinion, the Sony was simply a joyless to use, confusing menus, shocking ergonomics and a really awful reputation for after sales service should anything go wrong. The better performance by the Sony at the margins was not enough to negate these issues as the Canon R provided vastly superior user experience in the field.
    I eventually went with the canon R. Was it the best technically? Probably not, but it’s ergonomics were superb, it’s wireless and Bluetooth made backups instantaneous, no need for another card, menus and ease of use were intuitive, the lens range was extensive ( even the couple of 15 y.o. Lenses I own worked) and I picked up a couple of second hand ones really cheap. Finally it was a joy to hold and use, like an old friend.

    I would venture to say that it will outsell the A7iii due to Canon’s reputation and ecosystems, and they know their market better than the bloggers on YouTube who often are ‘influencers’ who say what they are paid to say…and Sony are famous for this.
