Lenses / Canon EF 600 f/4L IS II Review
« on: July 31, 2012, 07:04:40 AM »
A great Canon EF 600 f/4L IS II field review
Arash Hazeghi has posted a review on his blog for the new EF 600 f/4L IS II super telephoto lens. It’s a terrific review with wonderful photographs, much better than the one we did ever so quickly. If you’re into bird photography, definitely check this review out.


….Especially given the fact that the EF 600mm f/4L IS II is the sharpest, fastest and lightest 600mm super-telephoto lens currently on the market that eclipses the competition. At the end of the day, value for money is a relative figure. For handhold photographers who desire to produce top notch flight images, the EF 600mm f/4L IS II can significantly increase field productivity making it the best option on the market for this group of photographers. After spending just two weeks with the lens, I can state with confidence that the EF 600mm f/4L IS II is the most impressive product from Canon I have used to date and I am not easy to impress, therefore, highly recommended!

Lenses / New Tilt-Shifts in 2013? [CR1]

New Tilt-Shift lenses in 2013?
The 45mm and 90mm tilt-shifts have been on the replacement cycle for a while now, probably since the day after the 17mm and latest 24mm tilt-shifts were announced a few years ago.

Apparently we’re going to see a new 45mm and 90mm tilt-shift announced in 2013. Both of the lenses will receive the “L” treatment and the updated movement mechanisms. I would like to see the lock knobs built a bit better, I found them to be unreliable in the rental world and they are quite an expensive repair.

Also coming in 2013?  A new “specialist lens”. I’m not completely sure what would be considered a specialist lens, although a new macro would probably fit the bill.

Dodge & Burn Photography Tees
It’s Friday, time to have a bit of fun after all the serious rumor stuff.

A few weeks ago a little start-up in New York City called Dodge & Burn contacted me to find out whether or not I wanted to check out their line of photography inspired T-Shirts. Being a guy that likes to wear clothes, I gave them an enthusiastic ”yes!” They gave me the option to choose any shirt I desired, I just had to go with the lust worthy “Fast Shooter” shirt showing the amazing Canon 7 and 50mm f/0.95.

My shirt showed up today, and while they didn’t improve my photography, it definitely made me look a lot better shooting.

You can check out Dodge & Burn and all their T-shirts at the links below, follow them on Twitter too!

A bit more information
The T-Shirts are made by American Apparel in the United States and also printed in the USA. One happy customer (thanks Brad) let us know they have held up excellent after months of use and washing.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Canon EOS-1D X vs Nikon D4
« on: July 26, 2012, 06:28:09 AM »
The titans square off
Matt and Jamieson of Jamieson Dean Photography decided it was time to put the Canon EOS-1D X and Nikon D4 and see which was the better camera for them.

The drama builder
Matt has been shooting Nikon for a decade and is actually considering switching systems to Canon. Will he stay, or will he go?

They put the cameras through a battery of tests including:

  • High ISO Raw image noise
  • Low-Light Auto Focus
  • Auto Focus Speed
  • Auto Focus Consistency
  • Highlight & Shadow Recovery
  • Screen Colour & White Balance

For Matt, the green screen of the Nikon D4 was a big deal to him and one of the main reasons he was thinking of jumping ship to Canon.

From Xerodigital

Needless to say, the greenish cast that the Nikon D4 exhibits is enough of an issue to put Matt into a big decision scenario; stay with Nikon or switch to Canon? Though there have been reports and claims of fixes and work-arounds to counter the green screen issue, we found that none have been effective in resolving it. Canon has an incredibly enticing system in the 1DX…is it enough to sway Matt away from his beloved Nikon system after over a decade of professional loyalty?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Canon EOS M & EF 800 f/5.6L IS

….. because you can
A friend of mine had a chance to play around with the new Canon EOS M. He did what I would have done the second I got my hands on the camera…. mount it to the lovely EF 800 f/5.6L IS.

Here’s what it looks like. I must say this looks like an extremely comfortable setup for general walk around birding.

EOS Bodies / Another Spec List for the Entry Level Full Frame EOS
« on: July 25, 2012, 07:32:47 AM »
An “entry level” Full Frame Camera
[NL] has posted a spec list of the rumored “entry level” full frame camera that will be announced for Photokina. This camera would take the place currently held by the 5D Mark II. It’s fairly close to what we have posted previously.


  • Two different sensor specs received (thanks) for a ‘cheaper’ FF DSLR.
  • One suggests an 18MP sensor and the other 22MP

Other features:

  • Design closer to 7D than 5D3 (smaller and with flash)
  • 7D style AF system (19 pt) and VF LCD
  • 7D metering
  • Single Digic 5+
  • 3.9 fps
  • 3 inch LCD
  • 51200 max ISO
  • Below $2000 USD

EOS Bodies / Another Full Frame Camera? [CR1]
« on: July 25, 2012, 07:26:33 AM »
Over a POTN there is a thread talking about a “1D X Successor”, basically a “slower 1DX”. Judging by the rumored price of $4000 AUD, I wouldn’t think it’s an “EOS-1″ body, perhaps a large megapixel camera above the 5D Mark III.

I believe we’ll only see one new full frame camera in 2012, unless something gets announced at the end of 2012 for availability in 2013.

Pricewatch Deals / Canon EOS 5D Mark III Price Drop

From B&H
The slide down of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III pricing has begun. B&H Photo currently has the 5D Mark III body only listed at $3349 and the kit with the 24-105 f/4L IS at $4149. That’s a drop of $150 on both ways to buy the 5D3.

EOS Bodies / A New 100-400 & Coming Announcements [CR2]
« on: July 25, 2012, 06:58:07 AM »

More announcements coming

I’ve been told to expect two more announcements before Photokina begins in September. It’ll be a nice mix of DSLRs and lenses, as well as the usual PowerShot upgrades.


We expect 3 more DSLR announcements before the end of 2012, however only two of the three may come before Photokina. One of the cameras will be the full frame camera we’ve talked about before.


We still think a bunch of new lenses are coming down the pipeline from Canon. How many? By our count we hear at least 6 new lenses for the EF & EF-M mount before the end of  2012. Right now, we’re not sure how many before Photokina.

We were recently told that a new EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS was coming sooner than we originally thought.

All of this would leave us with a record year at Canon, with 6 new DSLRs and 13 new lenses.


We do not expect any other EOS M bodies before the end of 2012. I do expect a lens announcement or two to rekindle the hype around the system when it hits the streets in October. 


EOS Bodies / More Coverage of the Canon EOS M
« on: July 23, 2012, 11:28:35 AM »
Lots of information out there
Since you have to wait until October to actually buy one, at least you can kill some time reading about it.


Overall, the EOS M, with its slim form factor and large image sensor, would likely appeal to compact upgraders looking for dSLR-like quality minus the bulk as well as dSLR, users who have already invested in a stable of Canon glass.

From Digital Camera Info

The EOS M is a camera for the masses, a simple-to-use interchangeable lens camera that won’t intimidate, but doesn’t skimp on the components or build quality. Its similarity to the Canon T4i is going to make for some tough buying decisions for many people in the sub-$1000 camera market; for just $799.99 this October, you can likely get all of the T4i’s performance in a smaller package.

EOS Bodies / Canon EOS M Hands On Via Tech Radar
« on: July 23, 2012, 12:52:39 AM »

More Canon EOS M Coverage

The folks at Tech Radar have posted a video and article hands-on of the new Canon EOS M System. It doesn’t appear that Canon has allowed any journalist to save and examine images taken by the Canon EOS M.

Early Verdict from Tech Radar

On the whole the Canon EOS M impresses. It’s a nice, solid-feeling camera that offers plenty of control to the enthusiast, without daunting its more novice target market.

We think that Canon has made the right move by using an APS-C sized sensor, and inevitably this means creating a new lens mount if the camera is to reap the size benefits of being mirrorless.
