Course Description

Marking a new chapter in the history of Canon’s EOS, the EOS R mirrorless system is built for imagemakers who demand high-performance capture, a full-frame sensor, and excellent ergonomics. The EOS R was launched in September 2018, and in a few short months, the EOS RP was released bringing the lightest and most compact full-frame Canon digital camera to the market. Then in the summer of 2020, the EOS R5 and EOS R6 were released bringing new technological breakthroughs for creatives. In addition to the new mirrorless cameras, Canon developed 19 native RF lenses which increase the diverse range of Canon’s lenses to over 100 offerings.

In this online workshop, Canon’s Senior Technical Specialist, Mason Higa, provides you the expert guidance to improve your skill set and knowledge with Canon’s new EOS R mirrorless system. We dive into what makes these mirrorless cameras so great for so many photographers and highlight the new advances in RF lens technology.

In four group sessions spread over two weeks, this tech-centric workshop covers a wide range of topics including a thorough review of all the basic user settings and menus for stills and video; customizing the camera to suit your personal needs; and getting creative with picture styles, multiple exposures, HDR mode, and focus bracketing.

Additionally, Mason covers camera 5-axis In Body Image Stabilizer (IBIS) and lens Image Stabilization (IS); choosing and using auto-focus lenses in different scenarios, RF mount technology; and using in-camera Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to connect to smartphones and tablets using the Canon Camera Connect app.

This workshop spans two weeks, so you have time to test out the concepts you learn in class and time to do your homework. Yes, there will be homework! But don’t worry, this homework is fun and designed to help fortify everything you learned during the workshop.

If you’re new to mirrorless technology, a lifelong seasoned pro or someone interested in picking up a camera again after a few years away, Mason welcomes everyone to this workshop.

Santa Fe Workshops always aims to produce a high-quality experience for our online attendees. That said, variables including regional and local internet provider speeds, traffic on Zoom's servers, and your own computing hardware can contribute to a less than ideal streaming event. While we do our best to minimize the impact of these variables, they are outside the control of Santa Fe Workshops.
