"I've always preached that the best landscape pictures come about because of visualisation and planning, going back for the right light and being persistent. All of that is still true, but there are opportunities that come along when you're out on a walk on a winter's day and you get the kind of light you could have never predicted. If you've got a small camera with you in your backpack that you have in there by default, that's a tremendous advantage."
He also appreciates mirrorless features such as the electronic viewfinder (EVF). "If you're doing a night shoot, you can't see anything through an optical eyepiece, whereas an EVF will show you exactly what you're going to get. That's a big advantage – and features accessed via the EVF, such as focus peaking, are also very useful."
For David, the biggest advantages of the Canon EOS R System are the fast and responsive autofocus, the exceptional high ISO performance and the in-lens Image Stabilization – features that are being taken to the next level in the next generation of the EOS R System, the Canon EOS R5. Together they make it so much easier to shoot in low light and have enabled him to work in a new way, creating images he couldn't have done previously.
