The mirrorless war has been raging for some time now, particularly since Canon and Nikon entered the frame. Not all were well received, one of which has just been called "the most underrated camera of 2019" by a prominent YouTuber.
The Canon EOS R got very mixed reviews upon release. The general consensus seemed to be underwhelmed, and I was firmly in that camp. Matti Haapoja has shot with a number of cameras, and like many of us, wasn't overly interested in the EOS R when it came out. However, he seems to have done a 180 on that.
Now, it's worth noting that Haapoja's work is primarily in video, but to that end, he believes that around 80% of the video he has shot since owning the EOS R, has been shot with it. He doesn't deny that the specs are not up to grade, but instead believes the strengths lie elsewhere, like colors and bitrate. A lot of the reasons Haapoja gives are generally personal preference and little hazy on the details.
I'm still not quite sold, how about you? Do you agree it's the most underrated camera of 2019?
