What’s up guys,today we’re talking about the canon 90d. This is a camera that I’m, very excited to talk about because it’s, the follow-up, so the oh, so popular Canon ad D, which was an absolute monster hit for Canon and this camera, has a new sensor.
A new video processing unit and much better autofocus, but does it hold up in today’s? Tough, tough video camera market? So let’s. Do deep dive see exactly this cameras for exactly what it does and if it’s right for you and if you guys are interested there’s, a link down below for the absolute best deal on this camera.
So first things. First, let’s. Talk about the specs, because the image quality really matters. This thing has a 32 megapixel sensor, which is actually 2 megapixels more than the 5d Mark 4, but resolution wise are in the same ballpark as the 5d Mark 4.
Although the 5d Mark 4 has a full-frame sensor, I know but frame rate wise for photos. It does 11 frames per second with a 28 raw buffer that’s, a very respectful, very good for fashion sports, photography, video wise.
It does 4k up to 30 in HD up to a hundred and 20. This is an absolute dream for a filmmaker and also this cameras designed for filmmakers more on that later, although I should mention this, camera does not have any cinema profiles no flat profile.
No cinema profile, no log profile, the colors you get just straight out of the camera, although Canon colors and just I Canon look, it’s very popular. So mostly, you guys won’t mind, but for cinematic work, where you are really pushing and pulling your colors and creating a look.
This camera no go, but that’s, not necessarily a bad thing. Canon is known for their color profiles. The booths are just the right shade of blue. The skins are just perfect, everybody looks attractive, the reds are nice and poppy.
The oranges are bright and huy like that’s. What people like about canons and if you’re, someone that’s, a content creator, a corporate, filmmaker, a wedding guy! Anything where you’re just pumping out stuff all the time and you don’t want to have to bother with color correction or just you don’t have time for it.
This camera is perfect because everything looks good on a camera and you can just tweak it a little bit just like adjust the colors here and there, and you’re good to go with so many colors like get ready to spend your week.
Getting those colors right, Sony makes great cameras, but the color science kind of socks. For that I think anybody that’s, pumping a content in a very fast rate. This camera is perfect and if you’re a vlogger or someone that just wants to make sure they look really good on video.
This camera might just be what you’re looking for, because the Canon colors are tweaked to make sure that skin specifically looks very flattering on camera and then generally I find people look more attractive with a Canon camera.
Then they do with a Nikon. Simply because the colors are better and the quality of the photos and videos out of this camera is just phenomenal. The 32 megapixel sensor gives you very sharp photos. You can really push and pull the colors with the raw codec, and the video itself is super sampled.
So the HD looks extra sharp extra crispy and it just it’s, a very, very appealing, HD the 4k. However, I found was a little bit soft and, to be honest, I’m, not that impressed with the 4k in this camera.
At this point, I’m, really looking for cameras that have 4k it’s 60, like my Fuji xt3, the for cane. This is serviceable. If you want it, if you’re a vlogger that wants to do 4k at 30, but to be honest, I think the for cam.
This is just forgettable. If you really want good 4k, I think the Canon 5d Mark 4 is a much better option and a quick thing that I just want to bring to your attention. I’ve. Seen a lot of reviews talk about how the audio and the autofocus do not work in 120 frames per second, and do not let that deter you from not getting this camera in 120 frames per second, you’re, an ultra slow motion.
You should be pulling your own focus like it’s. There’s too much happening if the camera was to pull focus where you would literally be like a very slow focus, pull and audio your. If you did listen to the audio slowdown 220, you’d, be like super slow.
The hundred 20 frames per second is perfect. In this camera it’s sharp its crispy. I’ve heard a lot of flack for this camera in 120 frames per second mode, but it’s very usable. Please do not let these other reviews tutorial from it.
It’s, a very, very good, slow motion. Camera. Also, the ISO on this camera and low-light is not the greatest. I’m, not even gonna. Look at you guys right now, because I’m embarrassed for Canon, but it tops out at like 3200, which is kind of ridiculous. This thing should be way better in low light and, if you do want to know more about this camera, specifically in terms of video, there’s. A video review for the Canon itd coming up and be sure to leave me like it kind of helps me figure out what you guys like.
Next, let’s. Talk about an autofocus. The autofocus in this camera is 12 out of 10. It’s, great canons, dual pixel autofocus is known for being industry-leading and it’s. Phenomenal everybody loves it and face tracking as a technology overall is great, but with this camera the way they implement, it is really good.
Just small touches like if you have multiple phases in your shot, you can use the toggle on the back to switch between the phases. These subtle little things make it more user friendly because the technology is already there, but the way the user interacts with that technology is really well done in this camera and for anyone that is new to Canon cameras.
The autofocus in this camera is fast, reliable and never hunts, and for those of you who already know this go team Canon overall, the autofocus in this camera is great, like every other Canon camera. But I am a bit disappointed that I found the eyepiece was kind of hindering like when I first started shooting with this camera.
I use the eyepiece a lot cuz. You know that’s. What you do you get a DSLR for that feel, but I found the live view was just more reliable and I can see a lot of people being disappointed by that aspect and wishing that the eyepiece autofocus was a little bit better.
But for video users, that is a good thing, because having better autofocus through Live View actually means you get better autofocus for video, and this is primarily meant to be a video camera. Aha, so if you are someone that’s primarily using this for video, this autofocus is bang-on, and I think part of the reason that the autofocus for video is really good in this camera is because of this lens.
Most kit lenses are just serviceable like they are just meant to get you from point A to point B and a lot of times when you focus with them, especially in video. You can generally hear the lens clicking which gets picked up by your mic, and it’s kind of like choppy.
You can see it kind of going through its different stages, but this 18 to 135 kit lens. Oh, my god, it is so smooth like just turning this focus motor in like manual mode. Oh, my god, it is buttery smooth.
It is and, like I know something you guys will get mad at me as smooth a cinema glass. Man like this is a very, very smooth focus ring and when you have this lens going in, like full, auto focus mode, it is seamless.
It is a very, very smooth rack, very, very good. If you’re, a documentary filmmaker and you want to just have a lens that’s like a wide end to a telephoto lens and just kind of like. Let it go, and just like record record record without having to worry about your auto focus.
This is the lens, and this is camera like. I genuinely feel this is the perfect documentary camera, which leaves us really nice, the intent design so right off the bat. This thing is designed for video people.
It’s, got the little flip up screen. If you’re a vlogger, you can see yourself. If you’re a DP, you can put the subject to the side and just kind of like frame them up it’s got touch control, so you can just touch get autofocus.
But more importantly, one thing that I really appreciate it has an LCD panel at the top. I found that when I was shooting with this, I would just look down immediately see what my ISO shutter speed aperture was that in that made a world of difference, it is just so much quicker to just quickly read what your camera’s sitting At and just be able to shoot right away, then to be like okay hold on what’s.
My ISO, I’m, just like it’s less fiddling around and you’re way more efficient as a shooter with this designed and that’s. What the physical body of this actual camera! Oh, my god, it is such a dream to hold it’s like a nice beefy, robust DSLR feel it’s, got a nice deep grip like I think, a lot of the reason people will buy this camera is simply because it’s nice and robust and gives you that DSLR feel all the buttons are nice and clicky.
Talking about the experience of using this camera is such a dream. Plus it’s touchscreen in the back. It makes it way faster to use everything. The touchscreen is implemented in such a way that it’s, easy to navigate all the menus.
It’s almost faster than using the buttons. If you don’ t want that satisfying feeling, but the touchscreen is really easy to use. You can touch for autofocus quickly get through menus. It is such an easy camera to use.
Even if you don’t know, Canon cameras are not familiar with the image, but you just want an easy camera to use. This camera is an absolute must. It is an easy camera to use. I really think I can give my grandmother this camera and she’s from like the 30s and 40s like she did not grow up with computers.
She can figure this camera out. It’s, a very easy camera to use a big factor in buying a camera like this is durability. In this camera thankfully delivers it’s made of a denies aluminum. So it feels nice and light, but you can drop this a few times, though please don’t end into weather, so you can take this a jungle, humid conditions get a bit of water on it and you will be just fine and one thing That I appreciate it has a weather, sealed SD card slot right there.
A lot of people tend to put it down there and it’s very easy to for water to get in there. If you do end up dropping your camera in water, water will not get in there. Sand will not get in there, so your data is safe.
Now something that I want to touch upon really quickly is the i/o on this camera now something that they got right was that when the mic is plugged in and your screen is flipped out like maybe like this, if you’re vlogging or whatever That screen will never hit the headphone jack.
They kept video people in mind, but I’ve. Seen a lot of people use this camera for live broadcast, and if you have the screen flipped out for live broadcast, it actually blocks the HDMI port. So if you are planning to use this for a live broadcast, please please please keep this in mind because I’ve seen people do Facebook lives of this, and you know Canon you mess that up.
You got that right, but you got that wrong. Almost Canon next thing I want to talk about is software in menus. Whenever I pick up the Canon camera, it feels like I’ve been there before it feels like. I’ve used it before and that’s, because all the Canon cameras have very similar menus.
Very similar software would like a few differences here and there. What I like about Canon menus is that they’re, not that cumbersome there’s, a few options under each tab, unlike the Sony menus where you need a PhD to figure that stuff out, but the Canon menus are very simple.
Very like to the point they don’t really have any weird fancy wording we’re, like what does that mean? I need to google that can menus are really simple, easy to use. You could literally give this your grandma and she will figure it out.
Also, I did not forget about my vlogging buddies. This is a great vlogging camera. Let me bring the screen back out. This is a great screen for looking at yourself. It’s. Nice and sharp a very bright screen, and overall, if you already have an 80 D, I probably wouldn’t upgrade because it just has some very basic quality of life upgrades.
But if you don’t have a camera for vlogging at all. Get this or if you have kind of like a rinky-dink setup – and this is great like it’s a little bit more than the ATD and the ATD had a bit of a price job, because you know it’s.
An older camera, but if you’re just starting out, this is like your first big boy, DSLR for vlogging. This is a great starting point, but if you’re, getting this camera just for the 4k don’t. The 4k is a little soft and it’s, not really that needed as a vlogging camera.
What really impresses me is the fact that the audio in this camera is much better than the ATD it’s juicy like you, can really hate yourself, while even with a crappy mic. I recommend this camera because it’s.
A good vlogging camera, great audio and great screen, just if you already have an EDD don’t, the ATD will do just fine. Last but not least, the battery this thing has the LP 6 battery, which is the classic, which is 18 hundred milliamps, which is just a little bit less than your iPhone.
So this thing will go and go all day, because the big thing with batteries is having them die right in the middle of a great shot right in the middle of the video. So this thing will go and go all day no problem.
This camera also has a battery grip available for it, but I don’t recommend buying it. It’s, a $500 battery grip that just lets. You add two extra batteries. Honestly, if you have a lot of money, go for a by helicopter.
Buy me one too, but I don’t. Think $ 500 is really worth it for a battery grip unless you really really need it like for a professional work. In that case, I totally get it, but it’s better to just buy off market Amazon batteries for like 15 to 20 bucks, a pop and just change them yourself, because these batteries do last quite a while and it’s very Unlikely that you’re gonna die right in the middle of a shot.
I really don’t think that battery grip is worth it. So, at the end of the day, who’s, this camera? Really for – and the answer is pretty simple content creators and hardcore enthusiasts. If you’re, a content creator that just wants a whip content out to your followers, a 32 megapixel sensor with beautiful colors, you can just take photos, do minimal touchy because everything looks so good right out of the box, just whip it out to Your followers, if you’re, a video guide, weddings, corporate documentary, something where you don’t want to do a lot of retouching.
You need an all-day battery and great audio. This camera is ideal. I do not recommend this camera to someone that’s, a cinematic filmmaker. I am one I do hardcore DP work. This camera simply does not have the color profiles to back you up and if you’re an enthusiast, you just love photography, for whatever reason you like to travel with your camera, this camera will not let you down there’s.
Really. Nothing about this camera that should deter you other than the price tag. The 30 megapixels. If you’re doing photos is pretty close to the 5d mark 4 video wise. It’s, pretty close to the 5d mark 4, except for, like a few design, diff says yeah.
If you’re an enthusiast, this is a great camera. Just if it’s kind of expensive. I’d, recommend looking to the m50 or the canon or the canon m6 mark. I want to make sure I get that name right, but overall great camera, there’s, really, no one that I don’t recommend this camera to accept cinematic filmmakers, hey guys thanks so much for checking out the review of the Canon 90 D, if you’re interested in this camera, there’s, a link down below for the best pricing on this camera, and if you did like this video, be sure to leave me a like and a subscribe, because it really Helps me figure out what kind of content you guys are vibing with what kind of content I should make more of.
