This has nothing to do with Canon, but it's one of the more well done things I've seen about a photographer pushing the bounds of Art.

EOS-M / Re: Why do I keep my Eos M?

I suspect Canon has realized the fundamental fact of mirrorless...

It's nowhere without a genuinely usable EVF. Fuji accomplished that with their XT1 so it can be done. Aligning that with an acceptable form factor is the real challenge.

You do really good work!! Nice to see. Thanks.


It's hard for me to choose since I shoot about 65,000 portraits a year.   (Yes that much)  But the current one that people really like is this one.



you can see more of my work at http://trentchau.500px.com, there's a crap ton more portraits there.

You have to wonder what it means when technology being used by other photographic equipment manufacturers is a "rumor" for Canon.

So indicative of the horrible state of "journalism" in the photo equipment world.

This is a great story -- and what media organization is pursuing it? None.

I think we need to get Roger from Lens Rentals on the case!

You can be certain a company is in trouble when they stop posting cat pictures and videos.

I haven't seen Sony post a good cat picture in a long time now.

Flickr is a graveyard -- has been for some good time now.

I have no interest in the shovels they are using to dig the graves.

I'd be hard pressed to pay $350 for it.

I don't see it worth $550 for anything. Not in a Canon mount.

Fujirumors is saying today is announcement day for the Samyang 135mm f/2.0. Naturally, their interest is X-mount, but it appears it will be available for Canon & Nikon.
