Canon EOS Cousins

Canon EOS R on the left and on the right is my Canon EOS 7D.

Made about 10-years apart, the EOS R is a 30-megapixel mirrorless digital camera and the EOS 7D is a traditional DSLR with 18-megapixels of resolution. Both are shown with Canon battery grips attached. Although it doesn’t look it in this image, the 7D is quite a bit larger than the EOS R both in size and weight – the 7D weighs about 1313 grams and the R comes in at 992 grams with one battery installed.

One of the reasons I use a battery grip is to make the body easier to handle especially with a large lens attached. I rarely worry about running out of power since I don’t shoot videos so the grips usually only have one battery installed to save a bit of weight.

The LCD screen on the EOS R is shown in its closed position. I’m finding that I don’t use the screen since the electronic viewfinder is so bright and clear. I’m using the R as if it were a traditional film SLR.

Whenever I have the chance to shoot with my ultra wide-angle lens I tend to go all the way and stay set at 16mm. It can be overused though and I’m often criticized for how often I use it. I guess I like to feel as though I can expand my vision with one and see things in a different way.

As always, a big thanks for stopping by and another big thank you for an outstanding 2021. The blog has grown to a point that I never imagined when I started it back in 2015. Here’s hoping we see a peaceful and joyous 2022. – Chris
