Although Canon’s line of Vixia camcorders has been quite popular for some time now, not everyone wants to cart around a full-sized video camera – even a relatively small consumer model. For those folks, Canon has now introduced the Vixia mini compact personal camcorder. It still shoots 1080p HD video like its larger siblings, but also offers features such as multiple shooting modes and Wi-Fi connectivity. Read More

Canon EOS 70D features "dramatically improved" video-friendly focusing

By - July 4, 2013 10 Pictures
DSLRs can shoot amazing quality video. But their autofocus is primarily designed for shooting stills and can result in stuttering movie footage, which is why most filmmakers don't use it. However, Canon thinks this could change with the launch of the EOS 70D. The new AF system in the Wi-Fi-toting 20.2-megapixel DSLR is said to offer much faster focusing during Live View, to the point that it can shoot almost camcorder-rivaling video. Read More

Canon shrinks the DSLR with the EOS 100D

By - March 24, 2013 17 Pictures
Canon has revealed two new DSLRs – the EOS 100D and the EOS 700D (or Rebel SL1 and Rebel T5i depending on where you are in the world). Billed as the world’s smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR camera, the 100D still manages to pack in an 18 megapixel APS-C (22.3 x 14.9 mm) sensor and a touchscreen on the rear. The 700D is a more advanced, and traditionally-sized, entry-level model which can shoot at 5 fps, and has a wide 9-point all cross type AF system and touchscreen LCD. Read More

Magic Lantern team finally cracks the Canon EOS 7D

By - September 18, 2012 1 Picture
The EOS 7D is Canon's top-shelf crop-frame digital SLR - and since its release, it's been a favourite among SLR filmmakers. Like its big brother the 5D, the 7D can be wrangled into an outstanding piece of cinema equipment, but that's not really what it has been designed for – and the onboard software reflects that fact. Enter the firmware hackers at Magic Lantern, who have tacked on a bunch of extra functionality from focus peaking and focus stacking to zebra striping, expanded audio controls, time-lapse intervalometers and expanded exposure bracketing. For years, this functionality was available on more or less every Canon HDSLR except the 7D, due to the fact that it runs two DIGIC processors, not one. But yesterday, after what they've described as an "Aha! moment" the ML team announced they've figured out how to port the Magic Lantern software to the 7D. 7D owners, your new Magic Lantern firmware is on its way!
