With the launch of Canon’s EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras, Canon’s position in bird photography has grown even more dramatically. On the other hand, Canon has also introduced several RF lenses in the past two years, RF70-200mm F2.8l IS USM, RF600mm F11 IS STM, RF800mm F11 IS STM, RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM. Many lenses are known as bird shots. Today, we bring along Canon RF series lenses and EOS R5 cameras to experience the fun of photographing birds.
Canon RF100-500mm lens is undoubtedly a bird shot artifact
There are many RF telephoto and telephoto lenses. The lens we carry today is RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM, which is undoubtedly a bird shooting artifact. Canon RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM lens is a professional lens, which is suitable for a variety of photography topics. In addition to the bird photography we experienced this time, it is also suitable for sports photography, landscape photography, wildlife photography, as well as shooting airplanes, the moon and so on.
In fact, many people will remember the EF 100-400mm F / 4.5-5.6l IS II USM lens used in Canon SLR cameras, while the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1l IS USM lens not only extends the telephoto to 500mm, but also reduces the weight by 0.44lbs. It is more portable to be outside, especially outside. In the storage state, the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM lens is small in size and can be carried in ordinary bags.
Rf100-500mm F4.5-7.1L USM is perfect for shooting birds. This lens can record the focal segment from 100mm to 500mm, so no matter the bird’s position is far or near, it can be shot through zoom lens, and users do not need to walk a long distance to complete the scene. Dual NANO USM ultrasonic motors can help users quickly complete the focusing operation, especially the 500mm remote focusing experience is also excellent. This is crucial for shooting birds, as many shots give users a very short period of time, and only a quick and accurate focus can capture the bird’s most beautiful moment.
This lens adopts the design of super UD (ultra-low dispersion) lens and UD (ultra-low dispersion) lens, coupled with the design of ASC coating film, which not only has obvious advantages in image quality and detail sharpness, but also can significantly reduce glare and ghost. The lens is stabilization and the body stabilization of Canon EOS R5 camera can compensate for up to 6 levels of effects. Even at the 500mm end, users can easily experience handheld shooting, making shooting more flexible.
For outdoor bird photography, it is often necessary to go deep into forest areas or more wild environments. Fortunately, Canon RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM lens and EOS R5 camera have excellent protective performance. This combination can easily cope with harsh environments even when shooting in rainforest, beach, desert and other environments.
Speaking of lenses, the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras are birds in their own right. Taking EOS R5 as an example, the full frame sensor design with 45 megapixels and the high-performance processor design of DIGIC X can make EOS R5 easily bring users a high resolution and high picture quality experience. The aforementioned excellent shake resistance, second generation full pixel dual-core focusing system, and full-size continuous shooting up to 20FPS are easy to deal with, and have become the palm of many bird photographers since their launch.
Another thing I have to mention is that Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras have become the core advantage of bird photography. That is the automatic focus technology of bird eye recognition, which is also Canon’s core advantage. When shooting birds with EOS R5 and EOS R6, the camera can automatically recognize the bird’s eyes and focus. What the user needs to do is to control the composition and then press the shutter. Is the experience of using EOS R5 and EOS R6 radically different than before?
What is the actual experience of the bird shooting artifact?
With the introduction of camera and lens, many users must be curious to know how this set of combination in bird photography, can bring what kind of picture feeling. Throughout the filming process, is also mentioned above, the Canon EOS R5 plus RF100-500 – mm F4.5-7.1 L IS the weight and volume of the unsharp mask is not large. Besides, it would not be a burden to be carried out for wild birds or in the outdoor photography. Even for a long time to walk, it can still be counted as the combination of lightweight (compared to traditional plus a telephoto lens SLR cameras experience).
During the shooting process, due to the excellent control performance of Canon EOS R5 and the excellent bird eye recognition autofocus of the second-generation full pixel dual-core focusing system, it can make the shooting easier for users and solve the problem of focusing or choosing the right focus. Combined with the full-size high-speed continuous shooting performance of up to 20FPS, and the combination of up to 6 levels of stabilization compensation, the shooting success rate can be greatly improved. Images that were easy to miss in the past can now be captured more easily.
For the framing part, Canon EOS R5 has a horizontal 180-degree, vertical 270 degree flip touch screen design, so that even if the camera needs to be raised above the head or pressed to the ground, the screen can be flipped with touch operation to complete the framing and adjustment, allowing users to have a more relaxed and elegant photography experience.
The picture quality part, because the camera and the lens themselves are professional products, so the overall picture quality performance is very good. The analytical power, the sharpness of the details, the overall color restoration and the RAW format’s tolerance are all very good, so you can easily produce a satisfactory image after shooting.
As for bird photography, in fact, early shooting has a greater impact on the whole process of photography, and this set of combination has excellent early capture ability. The high level of camera shooting, coupled with the icing on the cake in the later stage, finally presents an excellent picture sense.
Why are RF telephoto lenses and EOS R systems needed?
Bird photography is a difficult type of photography, but it is a very popular subject for many users. Due to the limitations of cameras and lenses, many users cannot personally experience the sense of accomplishment brought by bird photography. Only with Canon RF telephoto lens and Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras can users easily complete the shooting process of bird photography and experience the fun of shooting.
The overall quality of Canon’s EOS R system and RF telephoto lenses is above the standard and has a significant competitive advantage in terms of handling performance, performance configuration, and final picture quality, thus delivering a near-perfect experience for users. With this set of assistance, we can relieve users of many complicated operations in the focus shooting process when we take bird photography outdoors, which are all completed by the camera itself, so that users can have a more relaxed shooting experience and enjoy photography more.
We always say that photography is all about the idea and level of the photographer, but without the assistance of the camera and lens, many photographic subjects could not be completed. Not only bird photography, if users use EOS R camera system with RF series of telephoto lens, but also can easily complete sports events, landscape photography, high-end portrait photography, wildlife photography, aerial photography and other aspects of photography. With such a wide range of EOS R camera systems and RF lenses, and with such strong performance and quality, why shouldn’t users choose?
