I’ve had the new Olympus 100-400mm f/5-6.3 (B&H | Amazon) for a few days now, and I finally was able to take it out and photograph some wildlife. I took the lens, paired with my E-M1X, to Blandford Nature Center, where I knew I’d see at least a few animals. While a lot of photographers […]

Canon RF 85mm f/1.2 vs Canon RF 85mm f/1.2 DS – Is it worth the extra cost?

Canon’s announcement of two RF 85mm f/1.2L lenses for their mirrorless camera system was quite surprising. One of them has that “DS” moniker, or “Defocus Smoothing” and the other does not. It was announced early last year, but what does it actually do? And how do the two lenses stand up side-by-side? The DS version of […]

Forget Video: A Review of the Canon EOS R5 for Stills Photographers


This post is by DL Cade from PetaPixel

Given all of the overheating controversy and the intense focus on the camera’s 8K and 4K video capabilities, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that the Canon EOS R5 is also a stills camera. But Gordon Laing at Cameralabs didn’t forget, and he’s reviewed this camera specifically for stills photographers.

The full review and all of the included samples were captured using a boxed, full-production unit of the Canon EOS R5, so no “pre-production” warnings here. It’s just a proper review of all the things that matter to stills photographers: resolution, noise, dynamic range, autofocus performance, IBIS with and without a

With all the talk of the Canon EOS R5’s overheating and shortcomings for filmmakers lately, it can be difficult to remember that this camera was primarily designed for shooting stills.

We have three important new announcements since the last roundup, two of them video-related. The mirrorless market for serious photographers has matured to the point where there are five distinct “niches”.

Shape Camera Bag Review

A good camera bag feels like a natural extension of your on-set workflow and a bad camera bag feels like it’s fighting you every step of the way and has a price tag that doesn’t match reality. I’m sure most of us have had experiences with both sides of that particular coin and when Shape announced their new relatively affordable camera bag my interest was immediately piqued. Could the Shape camera bag be the one camera bag to rule them all? Let’s find out.

Over the years neutral density filters have become a staple in my photography. Allowing me more control over my camera exposure.

During this last year I was able to review the Z CAM E2 and E2c flagship cameras – both sporting a micro four thirds sensor. And while I found the Z CAM E2 to be a very very capable camera, I was always curious to get my hands on the fullframe Z CAM E2-F6 camera. Up to 6k from a big fullframe sensor with ProRes internal recording options – wow! How will it fare in comparison to other full frame cameras that we recently reviewed? Read on …
