Canon and Nikon, two of the most well-known names in the photography industry, waited on the sidelines and watched as Sony emerged as the most competitive participant in the full-frame mirrorless sector. However, that changed in the late summer when both corporations introduced new systems to the market.

We’ve previously taken a look at the Nikon Z 7, which is an impressive first effort. Unfortunately, the Canon EOS R is not as well-polished and does not include as many features as its predecessor. Still, it does provide one significant benefit to Canon users: it is compatible with the SLR accessories and lenses already in your possession, and all that is required is a cheap adapter. Moreover, the EOS R does not threaten the Sony a7 III, the Editors’ Choice Canon waterproof camera for this category, even tho its higher resolution.

Canon’s entry- to mid-level mirrorless-SLRhave hasn’t had nearly the same mass-market success as its long-running EOS Rebel SLR line, even though the company’s EOS R system has garnered popularity with professionals and easts. This is something 30-megapixeliness intendsusesith the introduction of the EOS R10, an APS-C sensor camera that utilizes the same lens moans even as the full-frame EOS R line.

The autofocus system of the R10 is more intelligent than any Rebel SLR, and it uses a rapid burst rate to capture subjects that are moving quickly while maintaining a high level of detail. Additionally, to record video in 4K at a frame rate of 60 frames per second, making it suitable for use by vloggers and moviemakers. Although it does not entirely take our Editors’ Choice title away from the Fujifilm X-T30 II, the Canon EOS R10 is likely to be a better match for Canon producers who already have a lot of gear that is compatible with Canon cameras.

When Canon announced the PowerShot G7X in October of 2014, many folks were disappointed that it didn’t have a viewfinder. However, this deficiency was remedied with the introduction of the PowerShot G5X in November of this past year, which included a 2.36-million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF).

The viewfinder has a good performance overall, although there were instances when it was slow and had trouble keeping up with quick action. According to the data provided by CIPA, the battery life significantly increases from 210 to 215 shots when the fully articulating touchscreen display is used rather than distinguished by its extensive feature set,y result. However, there is a setting on the Canon waterproof camera called “Eco mode” that, when used in conjunction with the LCD, may dramatically increase the number of images taken before the battery dies.

Since it has been many years since Canon introduced its most current midrange APS-C SLR, the 80D, which was released in 2016, the announcement of the new EOS 90D is not shocking. It has several substantial recent technological advancements, such as a 32.5-megapixel sensor capable of recording in 4K, enhanced focusing in both the viewfinder and Live View, and some minor ergonomic enhancements.

The improvements aren’t substantial enough for us to consider the report for the EOS 7D Mark II, which is still on sale and has a more rugged build and better-feeling controls. Still, the 90D is an attractive camera for customers who are happy with the features and feel of the eight models. However, if you strongly prefer an optical viewfinder, the 90D is a solid choice that won’t disappoint you.
