The Canon EOS R5 is a fantastic camera if you care about are still images.
We’ve been using the Canon EOS R5 for stills photography primarily so far. It’s fantastic! And you can catch up on all our coverage so far. We’ve even used it for short video clips and have talked to a few video professionals about using it. So we decided to talk about it a bit on the latest episode of Pro Camera Reviews.
Using the Canon EOS R5 as a Journalist
The Canon EOS R5 is the closest thing we have to a mirrorless 5D series of cameras. The Canon 5D series has been popular with many photojournalists and now the mirrorless version is here. We’ve been using it a whole lot for photography–which is what it’s been designed for first and foremost. We’re going to discuss this camera and its use for photographic applications. Join us as we dive into what it’s like to use the Canon EOS R5.
In Our Next Episode
Does Fujifilm Need to Go Full Frame?: Pentax took forever to go full frame and instead just focused on medium format and APS-C. Fujifilm is doing the same. While more people buy Fujifilm GF cameras because they’re far more affordable, Medium format doesn’t have the tech that Full frame does. We’re going to discuss whether it’s needed or not.
Olympus E-M10 IV – First Impressions: Despite the impending sale of Olympus to the Japanese investment firm, JIP, Olympus has continued to push out new products to market. The lastest camera from them to be announced is an update to their entry-level EM10 series. The EM10 IV boasts some improvements over the Mark III which arrived back in 2017, but are there three years worth of improvements in this tiny OM-D body and is the price of $699.99 justified for the body alone? Find out as we share our first impressions.
Sigma 100-400mm f5-6.3 DG OS HSM First Impressions: For Sony E-mount wildlife and sports shooters, compact and affordable telephoto zoom lenses have been a rarity. Until recently, the only Full Frame options were the 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 G Master and the 200-600mm f5.6–6.3 G. At $2,499.99 and $1,999.99 respectively, they weren’t exactly affordable for most photographers either. The 200-600mm was quite large, making it less than ideal for photographers who prefer to maintain as small a footprint as possible when working on location. This all changed with the introduction of Sigma’s 100-400mm f5-6.3 DG DN OS. It’s more affordable with an MSRP of just under $1,000. At roughly the same size as most conventional 70-200mm zooms on the market, the Sigma 100-400mm is much easier to travel with as well. We’ve been testing the Sigma 100-400mm out in the wild for the last few days: join us as we discuss our first impressions with this lens.

They mostly pertain to cameras and lenses, but sometimes things get a bit more serious. This is partly because we still feel that we need to be educators and leaders in this space. Additionally, we also need to be responsible. Episodes are done on Zoom and are recorded. They’re then shared on YouTube. We recommend that you subscribe to us on Youtube to keep up.
