A format known as APS-C is not one that I would utilize. My viewpoint changed as a result of the Canon EOS R7 camera performance

As someone who has spent their whole life taking an interest in wildlife, I have always found (wild) creatures to be fascinating, and capturing photos of them has been my favorite hobby in recent years. As a consequence of this, I did not think twice about seizing the opportunity when it presented itself to take the Canon EOS R7 on a whale-watching cruise in Sydney not too long ago. I went on the cruise with some friends.

I had the RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM and the RF 600mm f/11 IS STM lenses to go along with the camera when I boarded the cruise, and exactly as I had anticipated, the R7’s performance was amazing!

It is fairly incredible what Canon has been able to accomplish with its most current, low-cost enthusiast mirrorless camera; it is capable of doing everything that the company claims it is able to do, and it does all of those things extremely efficiently.

When I got back to my house and looked at the pictures, I realized that an APS-C camera was not the best option for me, at least not while I was attempting to take pictures of wild animals.

A proposition that I’d like to put up with Canon is the following: might the EOS R7 be manufactured in a full-frame configuration?

You know, something with a stacked sensor that is capable of shooting 32 megapixels, image stabilization, a high burst speed, a good buffer depth, and great performance in terms of focusing and subject tracking, right? That, without a shadow of a doubt, is going to be a scrumptious dessert.

Why do I need a full-frame mirrorless camera when I can get one with 32 megapixels?

You may make fun of me all you want for still using a DSLR, but the reality of the matter is that I haven’t found a viable full-frame choice just yet. For the time being, my go-to camera is the Canon EOS 6D Mark II. And taking into account the fact that I spend a good portion of my working day analyzing photography gear, I suppose you could say that’s saying something.

When Canon first announced the EOS R7, I couldn’t help but become excited about its newest camera. I was quite impressed by the product sheet for the camera, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one to see whether or not it would enable me to finally make the transition from a mirror-based to a mirrorless system. And because I’ve been a Canon user ever since I started doing photography seriously, I already have lenses that I can use if I acquire an adapter for them, so doing so made economical sense as well. Moreover, I’ve been able to utilize the lenses I already have.

Having said that, it had been quite some time since I’d used a camera with an APS-C format, and despite the fact that the EOS R7 itself cannot be faulted for its performance, I just couldn’t enjoy the final shots I obtained after putting them through the processing procedure that I normally use. This was despite the fact that the EOS R7 itself cannot be criticized for its performance.

To begin, when attempting to photograph something as specific as whale breaches, which is when the marine animals leap out of the water, it is preferable to be entirely zoomed out in order to have a larger field of vision. This is because it is difficult to predict where they will come up next, and having a larger field of vision will allow you to see more of the area.

Because the APS-C sensor made it possible for me to achieve a greater depth of field with the 100-400mm lens (roughly equivalent to 150-600mm in the situation I was in), I took the majority of my photographs with the lens set to the 100mm (equivalent) focal length. This was done so that I could get a wider range of focus. This suggests that I had to conduct a significant amount of cropping in order to zoom in on the breaching humpback calf in the image (which was, incidentally, putting on quite a show).

Because of this, the image quality that I was able to record was far worse than it had been before. In addition, a sensor that is not as big as a full-frame sensor is unable to capture the same level of information that is present in the areas of the image that are classified as highlights and shadows.

Even though the photographs I took of a whale breaching were of a quality that was suitable for sharing on Instagram, there is absolutely no chance that they are of a quality that is suitable for enlarging and printing, which is always one of my goals. Even though the photographs I took of a whale breaching were of a quality that was suitable for sharing on Instagram, there is absolutely no chance that they are of a quality that is suitable for

In addition to this, I miss the narrow depth of focus that I was used to having when working with a full-frame camera. I was able to obtain some amazing blurry backdrops when I was shooting with the EOS R5 and my older 6D Mark II, which helped to separate the subject from the backdrop more forcefully. Of course, the R7 was responsible for some of it, but the areas that mattered the most were the ones in which the camera’s smaller sensor led it to fall a little short.

Even though I haven’t had to use the EOS R7 to photograph animals in low-light settings, I would still be a little bit concerned about the performance of the sensor if I had to compare it to a larger imaging surface. Even though I haven’t had to use the EOS R7 to photograph animals in low-light settings.

The optimum level of equilibrium

There’s a good chance that the first thing that pops into your head is something along the lines of, “Why don’t I just get the EOS R5 or the R6?

I enjoy high-resolution sensors, but I really don’t need 45 megapixels, and I don’t see myself having a need to record 8K video in the near future. ” In addition, the R5 is rather costly, which is another reason why I don’t feel the need to get it at this time because I don’t feel like I need it.

On the other side, the sensor resolution of the EOS R6 mirrorless camera, which is just 20 megapixels, is not high enough to convince me to switch from the 26.2-megapixel 6D Mark II that I am now using to a mirrorless camera.

In spite of the fact that I am aware that a full-frame version will be more expensive, I am willing to wait for it and spend the additional money if it would give me with the speed and precision, and most importantly, the image quality that I am personally seeking. The cost of the R7 is acceptable in my opinion.

To make a long tale short, I would give anything to have a camera that has a good sensor resolution, focusing speed and tracking accuracy equivalent to that of the R7, and image stabilization. I would give anything. It would appear that 32 megapixels is the resolution sweet spot for me, and if it comes with a price tag that won’t make a major difference in my already diminishing money account, then that’s even better.
