Renting a Canon 6R

I am thinking about renting a Canon 6R and was wondering about the adapter as I probably wouldn't be purchasing new lenses. Two adapters were listed, a mount adapter and a control ring adapter. What are the differences, and what would you get. I'm thinking the control ring but I don't know what the advantage is.

The control ring mimics the programable control ring on native mirrorless lenses. In the EVF, you can 'pop' the view to the details of a 10x zoom. You can program the control ring to do many things, change ISO or other / similar, or to pop that EVF zoom display with a twist of the ring. If you're going to use EF lenses, or even older manual focus lenses, the adapter with the ring may be more useful.

The new system Canon RF lenses have a programmable control ring on the lens. For RF system cameras they have produced 3 different types of adapters to enable you to use EF lenses. One is a simple adapter (which I use and works perfectly), one (As CHG_CANON explains) has the added control ring feature, the third has the control ring AND the facility to add filters in the adapter as opposed to at the front of the lens. My adapter was included in my EOS R purchase. Good luck with the R6 - It may be my next camera.....

Note if you have any non-Canon lenses they may not auto-focus, at least with the simplest adapter. If so, need to tell camera to operate without a lens and use manual focus, if you do not do this camera likely won't work at all, at least R would not for me.

I have mine programmed for exposure compensation.

For a short rental, just the mount adaptor. For when you purchase , the control ring adaptor for sure. You will have enough going on in your testing period you will not even get around to messing with the control ring.
