Canon EOS R Unboxing

I got my Canon EOS R with 24-105mm f/4L IS lens kit from Adorama today. The cameras were supposed to ship today, but Adorama sent the cameras a day early, so I got it today, the earliest anyone who wasn’t chosen to receive a pre-production model (journalists) could get it. I had pre-preordered this camera within minutes of it becoming available on September 12, 2018.

In an earlier post, I said I would be getting the Nikon Z6. I decided not to go through with this for two reasons: (1) I was several days late for the pre-order and would likely be waiting until the end of November or much longer to receive it; and (2) after seeing Canon release their own offering for mirrorless, I decided now was the time to switch to Canon (like most pros already have). Because both companies were coming out with new mounts, I thought I might as well switch now before I got invested in Nikon again.

Here are some photos I took of the unboxing. See my next post for my first photos taken with the Canon EOS R.

  1. Hey! Stumbled on your blog through the search “using canon eos r with linux”.
    Would you mind telling us how do you use your EOS R and its associated CR3 files under linux ?

    1. Hi,

      I wish I could help, but I use JPEG, not CR3. Your comment reminds me that at some point I should explain how to use a card reader with the Canon EOS R and Ubuntu. At the very least, it would be a useful reference for me if I need to set it up again.

      Good luck!
