Canon EOS R7 Hands-On Review

Check out this in-depth Canon EOS R7 hands-on review. DPReview posted their Canon EOS R7 hands-on review.

From their conclusion:

The EOS R7 is a unique proposition. It’s easy to see The R7 as a successor to Canon’s 7D Mark II, especially given Canon’s R5 and R6 were, more or less, mirrorless successors to their 5D Mark IV and 6D Mark II predecessors, respectively. But that isn’t quite the case with the EOS R7, as we hit on in the previous slide.

Despite offering similar specifications to the 7D Mark II in many respects, its price, interface and accessory lineup at launch is more in line with Canon’s X0D series of cameras. As it stands, it’s a proper enthusiast camera with features and specifications that should satiate the needs of most any enthusiast, be it for stills, video or some combination of the two.

[…] the R7 is a respectable camera for both stills and video. The fact Canon is using the same Digic X processor found in its more capable full-frame RF cameras – and is using dual UHS-II card slots – suggests Canon wants to position this as a more capable APS-C system.
