Canon's EOS 5D Mk III finally breaks cover

By - March 2, 2012 19 Pictures
Canon has chosen to kick off its 25th EOS anniversary with a new enthusiast-level digital SLR. As expected, the company has decided against challenging Nikon's 36.6 megapixel D800 and has instead opted for a 22-megapixel full frame sensor for its EOS 5D Mark III digital SLR. The new camera shares many high performance features with Canon's much more expensive flagship professional model, the EOS 1D X, yet still manages a few tricks of its own. Read More

Canon's new PowerShot G1 X: The compact point-and-shoot camera with DSLR aspirations

By - February 22, 2012 9 Pictures
While most compact point-and-shoot cameras are aimed at the budget-conscious end of the market, Canon has higher aspirations for the new flagship of its PowerShot G-series. With a 1.5-inch, 14.3-megapixel High-Sensitivity Canon CMOS sensor that is just 20 percent smaller than the APS-C sensors used in Canon's EOS line of DSLRs and over six times bigger than those in previous G-series models, Canon says its new G1 X delivers the highest image quality available in a compact point-and-shoot.

Cameras are for christmas, lenses are for life - what high-quality optics bring to budget film-making

By - July 21, 2011 14 Pictures
Like all things digital, the technology in your beautiful new camera is heading towards obsolescence at an alarming rate. The same is true, though to a lesser extent, about that SLR lens with its own processors and motors for focus, aperture and stabilization. In the analog world of manual film lenses where a lifetime of use is guaranteed there has been a renaissance in the manufacture of high quality optics at all price points, driven in part by the advent of digital SLRs and cheaper camcorder options that are capable of delivering that "film look". But for serious moving picture shooting, still camera lenses just won’t cut it. Let’s explore why. Read More

Adapter lets you mount SLR lenses on iPhone

By - July 12, 2011 12 Pictures
There's little doubt that when it comes to snapping spur-of-the-moment photos, nothing quite matches the always-ready convenience of the smartphone. Apple's iPhone is second only in popularity to Nikon's D90 for overall image uploads to Flickr, and takes the top three spots in the Cameraphone category. There are now a whole host of apps available that can help add numerous clever effects to the photos taken with an iPhone's camera, and a growing number of hardware-based enhancements. If you find yourself yearning for a little more zoom than the Eye Scope offers, or the close-up goodness of the Fisheye and Macro/Wide Angle lens is just too small and fiddly for you, then perhaps what you need is an iPhone SLR Lens Mount.

Canon's new 200-400mm telephoto zoom: two lenses in one

By - February 7, 2011
Fiddling with lenses and focal length extenders to get the effects we want is an annoying necessity for photographers – but the latest announcement from Canon has the potential to make all the company's lenses at least twice as useful. The Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM EXTENDER 1.4x is the first lens Canon has made with a built-in focal length extender. At the flick of a switch, it goes from 200-400mm to 280-560mm while maintaining its presumably stellar L series optics through the whole zoom range. That's one less fiddly lens change for wildlife and sports photographers, and one heck of a great idea! Read More
