Insider: Canon EOS R7 Disassembly and Teardown

Canon EOS R7 - Parts Overview

In May 2022, Canon introduced the EOS R7, the first APS-C camera in the relatively young R system. The camera sensor has a resolution of 32.5 megapixels and is moving - the manufacturer promises 7-stage image stabilisation. On the data sheet, it is a very powerful, small camera with many functions and great ergonomics. But what does it look like under the hood and, above all, how suitable is it for infrared photography?

First experiences with the 630 nm IR camera

Hohes Venn-Belgien-IR-630

Author: Herbert Hecker

Ever since I saw some digital Colorkey IR shots (blue sky combined with white foliage and white lawn) a few years ago, I've been excited by the thought of trying it myself. And I haven't regretted it for a minute. I'm thrilled with the quality of the conversion including the 630 filter and the image possibilities that come with it. What I also appreciate about the camera conversion is that you can shoot handheld at ISO 100 without any problems.

Milky Way in Teide National Park

A post by David Behne

I recently had my Sony A7s modified with an astro filter at IRreCams. The first chance to test the converted camera came in summer on Tenerife. In the middle of the island lies the volcanic national park Teide. Although the island is not very big and some cities are located around the national park, the quality of the night sky there is incredibly good. Possibly this is due to the altitude of 2000 meters, where you can already escape the light pollution of the coastal cities a bit. The park is full of lava, rocks, cacti and plants. So it is not difficult to find an interesting foreground for landscape photography with night sky. One has almost too much choice.

Ep. 40: Infrared Lensflares in Backlight - InfraBlue

In Infrared Photography there are a few problems and image errors that are not known in "normal" photography. Lens flares in backlight situations are an example, which is why it is rather common not to have the sun directly in the picture. Nevertheless, it can sometimes be worthwhile to do it anyway and to include the resulting "image errors" directly in the composition of the image. The low sun was intentionally placed here as a counterweight to the tree on the right side of the image. The lens flares extend over the entire image and give the sun a much greater meaning in the image. Without the lens flares, it would probably be "only" the brightest point in the picture, but this way it influences the entire scenery even into the shadow areas.

By the way, the photo was taken on the island of Rügen, an infrared workshop will take place there in early July 2022 and there are still places available:
