Canon EOS R Versus the 5D Mark IV: Which Is the Higher Selection for Videographers?


The brutal crop when capturing 4K is likely to be a decisive issue for lots of filmmakers when contemplating whether or not to purchase the EOS R, however for a lot of it’s a strong choice at a very good worth. How does it examine to its DSLR equal, the 5D Mark IV? This video goals to search out out.

Parker Walbeck and his crew of videographers give a complete comparability of the EOS and the 5D Mark IV, making a compelling listing of explanation why the R is arguably the higher choice, particularly when you’re a videographer. In fact, there are a selection of disadvantages, reminiscent of the only card slot, however whether or not that offsets different features such because the distinction in worth and the choice of lenses makes it a tough selection.

Whereas I hate citing this somewhat drained dialogue, in watching this video a yr after the discharge of the EOS R, it strikes me as much more of a thriller as to why Canon selected to not embrace twin slots. With Nikon making the identical compromise and having the Sony a7 III as the obvious competitor, it looks as if it could have been price the additional house and price. The 4K crop would really feel one flaw somewhat than a part of an inventory of probably decisive shortcomings.

Whichever you select, it is price noticing that now is a superb time to purchase, with seasonal reductions knocking $500 off the R, and $600 off the Mark IV. Ridiculous.
