Great video and info. I’m holding out for the Canon R5 but not just for its video capabilities as I shoot a lot of still shots and am wanting to move to mirrorless from a DSLR.
The Canon R5 looks pretty impressive and looking forward to seeing some reviews. Cheers
I would also add the Fuji XT4 to your list, although I appreciate you havent tried it as yet. I would say its the best mirrorless camera for video, with 4K 60, IBIS, 10 bit, H265 and those wonderful Fuji colours 🙂
Haven’t tried that camera but I agree it does look good.
Good info and well presented but what would you recommend as a good all rounder for shoting both video and stills?… I think that is what a lot of people are looking for
I’m not a stills expert but I know a lot of people in my Real estate course who do both stills and video use the Canon 80D and the Sony A7iii for both. Most of the cameras mentioned are more than capable of doing a good job of both video and stills as they are still primarily stills cameras first that can shoot video.
I posted a comment to one of your other videos regarding this subject. Sorry. Posting from my phone which I know better than to do. It was regarding this video and lens for real estate. Great stuff as always. Posted there as your awesome image.
I bought your RE Bootcamp video and it’s very helpful. I have been shooting RE still photography for about 7 years now and started shooting video with a GoPro Hero 5 on a Karma Grip. Depending on the conditions I got pretty decent results, and then upgraded the camera to a Hero 7 Black, which is much better. However, I really wanted to up my game, so I recently bought a DJI Ronin-S and a Canon EOS R, mainly for video. So far it’s been great. I am still learning the camera and video techniques, and just bought a GVM Slider. It’s easy to use and I am anxious to use it on my next video session. I’m really curious about your thoughts on the EOS R. I also have a 5DM IV, which is great for video, but a bit on the heavy side. My EOS R came with the RF 24-70 f/4.0 lens, which I thought was a little too slow and not wide enough, so I bought a Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 prime lens. It works great with the EF-RF adapter, is light, and fast enough to produce good low-light results. I’m still in the experimental stages and welcome your tips. And, I am using Pinnacle Studio 23 for editing. Seems good, but I have found that editing the video clips for color is much better in Photoshop (yes, Photoshop can edit video). Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
Hi James – The EOS R looks like a very nice camera to but I haven’t had a chance to get my hands on one yet. That camera with your 20mm prime should be great for interiors. Cheers
