Sample filmed with Canon EOS R with 24-105mm f4 lens, testing Dual Pixel AF

Posted by Charbax – October 3, 2018

Sample video interview at the Canon Photokina 2018 booth filmed with the 24-105mm f4 on the Canon EOS R camera, since I filmed this in 4K30 it crops in by 1.8x. We also talk about the upcoming 28-70mm f2. This 24-105mm has in-lens stabilization which I thus am testing out in this video, the camera body has no IBIS though so the stabilization here is based on the lens only. EF-S lenses such as the 400euro 10-18mm for the 80D might be a good way to video-blog in 4K even with the 1.8x crop with the equivalence of an 18-32mm.
