A Creative Shot mode on the Canon Powershot N can automatically create five 'artistic' ver...

Most point-and-shoot cameras have a fairly standard design. They're rectangular, have a lens positioned to one side on the front, a screen on the rear, and controls for things like shutter and zoom on the top. The Canon Powershot N is not your typical compact. It has an unusually square design, and key controls are situated on rings around the lens.  Read More

Hello, world! The Magic Lantern team has finally cracked the Canon EOS 7D. New firmware wi...

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!  Read More

Canon has unveiled the EOS 6D, its smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR

It's a good time to be in the market for a full-frame DLSR. Last week, the Sony A99 and Nikon D600 were announced, and now Canon has outed the EOS 6D, its smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR. Despite also boasting built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, the EOS 6D is described as an "affordable" camera and comes in somewhat cheaper than most previous full-frame shooters.  Read More

Canon C500 and C100 cameras

Canon found itself in a strange position when the Digital Cinema "revolution" became mainstream. Having been a manufacturer of video camcorders for years it was surprised to find everybody wanting to use its still cameras to make movies. After adding a video function for press photographers, film-makers fell in love with the look provided by a large sensor and 24-frames a second. Canon (eventually) responded with the entirely new EOS C300 digital cinema camera nine months ago. Only two complaints with the C300 – too expensive and not 4K. Canon has now addressed those two little problems.  Read More

The near-ubiquitousness of camera-equipped smartphones has seen many ditch their dedicated cameras in favor of the convenience of snapping shots on their phone. But although the quality of the camera in the iPhone has improved over the various iterations of that device, there are still many things a dedicated camera is better at. But you don't have to lug around a fancy DSLR to up your photography game … here are 10 compact cameras that offer something the iPhone can't.  Read More

Is the Canon EOS M the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera you have been waiting for?

With offerings from competitors including Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus, Samsung and Sony already on the market - some for a couple of years now - it was only a matter of time before Canon launched its first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. Now, after years of rumor and speculation it's finally here. The EOS M is a compact-sized camera with a large sensor which works with new EF-M mount lenses (or EF lenses with an adapter).  Read More

Canon's MR System headsets look bulky, though they do pack in a lot of technology

Canon has announced a new augmented reality tool geared toward speeding up the product design process and easing the transition between the conception and execution of a product idea by allowing virtual prototypes to replace physical ones. The Mixed Reality (MR) System will make use of full-scale, three-dimensional computer generated (CG) images that change in real time based on the movements of the user.  Read More

Canon has unveiled its new flagship Rebel DSLR camera, with sensor-based Hybrid AF, multi-...

At face value, all the headline-grabbing features of Canon's new EOS Rebel T4i DSLR Camera (EOS 650D in Europe) look identical to those of the T3i (EOS 600D) before it, but not everything is at it first appears. Canon says that the new flagship Rebel model is its most consumer-friendly DSLR to date, and is the first of the company's cameras to feature a sensor-based hybrid AF system that allows for continuous autofocus while recording video. It also benefits from the latest DIGIC 5 Image Processor that's six times faster than its predecessor, and a high resolution multi-touch display panel with touch focus and shutter operation.  Read More

Canon has just brought 4K video recording to the world of digital SLR cameras in the shape of the EOS 1D C. Developed to support the broadcast quality TV, motion picture high-resolution production industries, the new EOS family member is based on the core specs of the EOS 1D X (which has just been confirmed for a June 2012 release), with some features from last year's C300 cinema camera thrown in for good measure.  Read More
