How to adjust Canon EOS R wildlife settings
Canon’s EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera is perfect for wildlife photography. The upgraded 30.3-megapixel APSC images sensor is paired with DIGIC 8, an image processor that’s fast and has a native ISO range between 100-40,0000. The silent shutter mode allows users to capture silent images with the EOS R. The camera comes with a built-in WIFI that allows you to remotely control it using the Canon Connect app. It also allows you to view the EVF feed from your smartphone or tablet.

Tips for wildlife photography using Canon EOS R
Step 1. Smaller body size for easy handling
Canon’s EOS R camera gives you a significant advantage in the field. The body is smaller, which could allow you to quickly access the controls. The Canon EOS R weighs half as much as the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. This can make a big difference in taking wild shots, where every moment is mysterious.
Step 2. The EVF (Electronic viewfinder) for changing settings
It’s great to be able to see the display and adjust settings while still keeping your eye on the subject when shooting in the wild. EOS R’s EVF allows photographers to see the image in the same way it was captured. This allows them to adjust the exposure and other settings.
Step 3. Articulated LCD screen for a long wait
It takes patience and practice to photograph wildlife. You might need to concentrate on a subject like a den or a nest to capture beautiful images for a long time. This type of situation can be managed without the need to constantly look at the viewfinder. The LCD can be used to precisely focus on the subject. This is especially important when using very long lenses that have a minimum depth of field.
Step 4. Randomly capture images with autofocus
If you need to capture images such as a lion walking or monkey jumping, the Canon EOS R is your best choice. You can capture every movement of the subject with sharp focus (in less than 0.05 seconds) and continuous 8-frame shooting. If you plan to shoot in burst mode make sure that the autofocus is set to One-shot AF.
Step 5. Focus on the eyes for the exact expression
Focusing on the subject’s eyes while taking a shot is a great way to get the best result. Canon EOS R cameras have 5,655 selectable focus points that allow you to focus on any area of the frame. Before you press the shutter button, ensure your eyes are properly aligned. The shutter button should be pressed lightly. After it has locked completely, press the button once more.
Step 6. Closer shots with a 30.3-megapixel APS-C image sensor
Canon EOS R includes a 30.3-megapixel APS–C image sensor that allows for cropping of images without quality loss. This camera can also be used with existing EF and EFS lenses thanks to the mount adapter.
You can also record 4k (UHD), 1080p(Full HD), and 720p/HD at 120 frames per sec. This will give you 10bit 4:2:2 HDMI output.
