EOS R Support

When can you finally expect the support of the Canon EOS R?

Maybe someone from DxO can give any indication? Are we talking about weeks, months, half a year, a year?

I’m really looking forward to support for the EOS R. I understand it is a very different (and new) RAW format. So it might take some time for it to be well implemented. On the other hand, the .cr3 format has been on the market for quite some time now.

I think there was a response at one time they were not going to be supporting the new format. It was said to be not a full RAW image. I hope this is reconsidered as the reviews have all said in most situations they couldn’t see any ill effect on the results but could get a very significant reduction in file size. I for one would find most situations the reduced size advantage outweighs slight loss of image most of the time.

I suppose that remark was about the cRAW version of the .cr3 format. Where I indeed didn’t see much of a penalty using it. I fear the biggest problem might be in the really different file format.

This was posted on the Photo Mechanic forum when asked about support. A week later or so support was there though.
“The file formats are massively different. CR2 is roughly a TIFF file just like so many other RAW formats. CR3 is an ISOBMF file (ISO base media file format) which is more akin to a quicktime movie container.”

Great work! Here a test-shot EOS R, RF 24-105, ISO 32.000 :slight_smile:

Hello @AkkiMoto,

I’m glad you appreciate our support of Canon R :slight_smile:

We plan to release module for RF 35mm F1.8 in April so that won’t be too long.

Yes, it is great indeed, well actually much better than I even hoped for. There is one big problem though… Will want to redo everything I shot till now with the EOS R in photolab… This is going to cost me a lot of time. :joy:

Hi Marie,

If you need RAWs, I have some :slight_smile:

Hello @AkkiMoto,

We will add optics profiles for Canon RF 85mm F1.2 before the end of July :slight_smile:

Hello,

Release was planned for this Wednesday but it will be postponed of probably 1 week (it’s not related to the lens but to the general release we want to do).
Sorry for the delay

You have for EOS R an optical module for Samyang 14mm F2.8 IF ED UMC AE Aspherical.
Is this a lens with EF-Mount or is this the new Samyang MF 14/2.8 RF?
