I’ll keep this short. Finally, the Canon 5D IV is here. If it has the sort of 13.5 stops of dynamic range we’ve seen in the new generation of Canon sensors, it will be the camera many have been waiting for. It runs 30MP frames at up to 7 frames per second, which is 1fps […]
We all know that some lenses are ‘sharper’ than others. We all know that there is some variation in the performance of different examples of the same lens. We also know that some lenses are rumored to suffer from greater sample to sample variation than others i.e. some manufacturers have better quality control than others. […]
Canon EOS EF 16-35 f4 IS Mini Review When Canon released this lens, many people complained that they really wanted a replacement for the 16-35mm f2.8 L II. An f4 aperture was regarded as too conservative; however, now that it has been out for some time, the market seems to have recognized it for what […]
Canon EF 85mm f1.8 USM Review I recently bought this lens, because my 85mm f1.2 L II is locked away in inaccessible storage and I specifically needed a portrait lens. The fact that the Canon EF 85mm f1.8 is only 40% of the weight of its heavier L sibling means it is more readily taken along […]
I just thought I’d post a few shots taken on the beach the other day. They should give an idea of what some people like about the this lens (especially the first two).
Canon EF 35mm f2 IS Review Introduction This lens surprised quite a few people when it came along, as did the Canon EF 24mm f2.8 IS and the EF 28mm f2.8 IS. They are not super-fast, the release prices can only be described as overpriced and there are zooms with stabilization that cover the same […]
Banding that is sometimes visible in the output of Canon sensors can be an emotive topic. Some people say it is a show-stopper, while others claim it is only a problem if you ‘horribly and unrealistically abuse files’ created in a test environment. Neither is quite correct, but banding is most definitely real and can […]
For some time I have been looking at picking up a fast 50mm lens for my DSLR system, but have been held back by doubt as to whether I would stay in the Canon system. I have thought this over a lot and each time balked at the cost and drama associated with swapping to […]
The much-awaited high megapixel full-frame Canon has been ‘out’ in the form of a few pictures and specifications for about a week, but now I see there is a review by The Digital Picture.com: Canon EOS 5Ds Review. Well done to them for being so quick off the mark, but is it all good news?
Photo & Specs from Canonrumors For Canon EOS users, there are going to be some epic announcements in the coming week that will really shake up the DSLR market. Canon has lost a great many landscapers for two reasons, namely the lack of high resolution cameras and the relatively poor dynamic range (and high pattern […]
