A recently unearthed patent purports to show, in detail, exactly how Canon plans to improve on sensor-based in-body image stabilization for its upcoming full-frame mirrorless cameras and DSLRs.
The patent application was uncovered by the folks over at Canon News, and it’s detailed enough to believe that this is the unit we’ll be seeing in future Canon EOS R cameras, and possibly DSLRs. As CN explains, Canon is doing its best to make its IBIS unit as precise and powerful as possible:
They are looking to create high efficiency in the movement force, and to improve the linearity of
The Canon XA40 is a small and mighty UHD camcorder yielding canon’s color as a weapon against single-lens camera hate in an s35mm and full-frame world. A surprise was my prevailing feeling after taking this little mighty wonder with me to the family farm in Rolla, North Dakota.
Small Size – Easy Travel
Traveling with a child and camera equipment means one must make compromises. What is needed to ease traveling with a toddler wins over cameras and lenses, right? After my wife made the suggestion to take the Canon XA40, I scoffed. I knew the mild summer beauty
Rumors for an ultra-high resolution Canon full-frame mirrorless camera are heating up. What began months ago as whispers that the Canon 5DS and 5DS R would be replaced by a mirrorless equivalent has turned into a new report that claims to reveal the specs of a Canon prototype that’s currently being tested.
Canon Rumors received this spec list just 24 hours after Canon News unearthed a patent for an 83MP image sensor that might be at the heart of this camera, which they’re calling the EOS RS for now.
According to CR’s source, who claims to have a prototype of
One of Japan’s largest newspapers has published a report that contains two very interesting tidbits for Canon mirrorless shooters. First, they claim that Canon will release a 1D X-level EOS R in 2021; and second, the report revealed that Canon is working on some sort of ‘converter’ that can turn a mirrorless camera into a DSLR.
The report was published in Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, and it seems to confirm rumors that Canon is preparing a high-end EOS R camera that could compete with Sony’s a9 and might replace Canon’s own 1D X flagship. Previous rumors seemed to indicate that
Earlier today, Canon revealed their latest Cinema EOS camera: the full-frame EOS C500 Mark II. The camera may not be of much interest to photographers, but its 5.9K full-frame sensor with dual-pixel AF, user-swappable mounts, 5-axis electronic stabilization, and dual CFExpress slots might give us a glimpse at some of what’s possible in future EOS R cameras.
The C500 Mark II marks the first time Canon has put a full-frame sensor into the more “classic” Cinema EOS style body, packing the same 5.9K full-frame CMOS sensor from the C700 FF into a smaller, modular body that costs just
In comes the Canon EOS C500 Mark II and all of its Full-Frame 5.9K glory. The headline on this camera announcement is easy to understand, Full-Frame and 5.9K stand out as the two best options. What is less obvious is how right it appears Canon got the EOS C500 Mark II. Sometimes the sequel is better than the original, which is exactly how Canon is marketing the C500 Mark II.
Modular in design, competitively priced, user-changeable lens mounts, electronic image stabilization, and internal cinema RAW light it seems like Canon took all the best features in their already
Canon has announced the EOS C500 Mark II. The camera features the exact same sensor that is found in the EOS C700 FF as well as 5-axis sensor stabilization which is a first for any digital cinema camera. So what are the key selling points of the EOS C500 Mark II? Full Frame We have … Continued
Back in July, photographer Patrick Seguin took advantage of his CPS membership to test out one of the most beastly lenses Canon has released in recent memory: the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM. In the video above, he pits this lens against the tried and true EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM to see just how much better the new RF lens performs.
Canon hasn’t been bashful about sharing the advantages of the wider, shallower RF mount found on its new full-frame mirrorless EOS R and EOS RP. The shorter flange distance should allow them to design high-performance lenses
Portrait photographer Julia Trotti recently put together a useful comparison video for beginners where she captures portraits using a crop-sensor camera and her most-used prime lenses: a 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 135mm.
Plenty of people have done comparisons like this using full-frame cameras and, in fact, Trotti did that comparison first. But after publishing that video, the most common request in the comments was to do a follow-up on a crop-sensor body. Given how much more affordable and accessible APS-C cameras are, her audience wanted to see how the most common primes would be affected by the crop when
Canon introduced the new EOS 90D, a marriage between the EOS XD and EOS XXD lines, putting an end, apparently, to years of segmentation. Is this another nail in the DSLR’s coffin?
The two new cameras usher in the next generation of Canon APS-C sensor cameras and share many similar characteristics, as Canon says, featuring a 32.5 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, high-speed continuous shooting, Dual Pixel CMOS AF and uncropped 4K UHD video recording capability. One note here, though: none of the cameras shoots 4K at 24p, a clear indication that Canon keeps protecting – even here Canon? –
Canon Australia sprung a massive leak last night, when the product pages for the un-released Canon 90D and Canon EOS M6 Mark II both went online by accident. We’ve already shared the promo videos for both cameras that were posted there, but that wasn’t all—Canon leaked its own product brochures, too.
There’s very little mystery left about either of these two cameras, which are allegedly scheduled to be announced next week. We don’t know the exact release date, sales start date, or pricing yet, but we do know know that both feature 32.5MP APS-C CMOS sensors, Digic 8 processors,
In addition to the Canon 90D promo video we just shared, Canon Rumors has also gotten received a seemingly-official promo video for EOS M6 Mark II, showing what Canon has in store for this compact APS-C mirrorless camera.
According to the leaked video, the current Canon EOS M6 is getting a serious overhaul, with more resolution, higher speed, better controls, and higher-quality video all on the list.
The Canon EOS M6 Mark II maintains the M6’s compact size and lack of EVF, but packs a 32.5MP CMOS sensor, Digic 8 processor, up to 14fps continuous shooting with AF/AE, Dual
Canon Rumors has gotten ahold of the official promo video for the upcoming Canon 90D. The video was leaked just minutes ago, and it reveals all of the key specs and design elements for what may be Canon’s new flagship APS-C DSLR.
Previous rumors indicated that the EOS 90D would replace both the Canon 80D and the Canon 7D Mark II, making it Canon’s new APS-C flagship DSLR. While it doesn’t seem that the upcoming 90D will totally fill the shoes of Canon’s sports-focused 7D Mark II, it’s getting a speed boost and a major bump in resolution as
In the tweet that kicked off the controversy, Davidson mocked the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development for not being able to speak Spanish. “You can’t even speak Spanish and you were born and raised in Texas,” read her initial Tweet. “That speaks volumes.”
Castro responded, quoting Davidson’s tweet and asking her “What do you think it says?” which led to immediate backlash from
I was excited when Canon and Nikon finally stepped into the mirrorless game seriously more seriously, releasing their full-frame mirrorless cameras in 2018. Nikon launched their Z6 and Z7 with the new Z-Mount, while Canon released the EOS-R with a new RF-Mount.
Taking a closer look to the mount design, both companies adopt very similar approach, and I can’t help but notice the similarities and be reminded of what Four Thirds promised and delivered in 2003 when Olympus DSLR E-1 was launched: a more optimized telecentric lens design.
Since I am still in the video frenzy mode, I thought I’d
Canon has issued an official security advisory for its WiFi-connected DSLRs after a security company showed that they could remotely hack into and install ransomware on a Canon 80D. The findings, which were shared with Canon ahead of the public reveal, have left Canon scrambling to patch a serious security flaw.
The critical flaw in Canon’s Picture Transfer Protocol was reveled by Security Company Check Point Research during Hacking Conference DEF CON 2019. As you can see in the demo video above, the company was able to take full control of a Canon 80D using either a USB or WiFi
Like it or not, much of the conversation around image quality these days revolves around sensor size. When Sony announced the a7R IV, it boasted image quality that “rivaled medium format.” When people defend Micro Four Thirds, they show off their ultra-portable system and claim the images are “indistinguishable from full-frame.”
And then you have tweets like this:
Full-frame has all-but taken over as the professional ‘standard.’ But why? And does it even deserve that title?
I don’t think it does. I don’t think full-frame’s dominance is based on the fact that it sits in some
Blackmagic is shaking up the cinema camera industry once again with the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K. Sold alongside the 4K version, the BMPCC 6K features a larger Super 35mm 6K HDR image sensor and uses the Canon EF mount, opening up a huge number of stills and cinema lens options for BMPCC users.
The newly released Canon EF-mount cinema camera boasts a 6144 x 3456 Super 35mm HDR image sensor, which translates into just over 21MP of usable resolution. Paired with dual native ISO of up to 25,600, Blackmagic claims the BMPCC 6K and 4K can both deliver
