High Megapixel Camera Development Announcement Mentioned Again [CR1]

High Megapixel Camera Development Announcement Mentioned Again [CR1]

Another mention of a development announcement for a high megapixel pro body from Canon coming in 2014. There were no specifications given, or a date that this could happen.

CR’s Take
I’m still not convinced this isn’t a product of the previous posts on the topic being recycled, as well as Canon’s own mention of it. With all the hype surrounding the EOS 7D Mark II and the fact we won’t see the camera until November, I can’t see anything happening for a new DSLR before the EOS 7D Mark II comes to market.

Next Rebel Going EVF? [CR1]

Next Rebel Going EVF? [CR1]

The next Rebel, apparently coming in Q2 of 2015 will be the first Canon DSLR to use a electronic viewfinder. The camera will also feature the 70D’s 20mp sensor that uses split pixel technology and also feature DIGIC 6 like most of the new cameras. This combination of technologies would raise the bar considerably as far as image quality goes in the Rebel line.

No EOS-1D X Replacement in 2014 [CR2]

No EOS-1D X Replacement in 2014 [CR2]

There’s been some talk about an EOS-1D X replacement some time in 2014, and it has been discussed even more with the apparent price drop on the camera through grey market retailers.

I have it from a good source that the EOS-1D X won’t be replaced in 2014, but should see an update in 2015. This is a pretty safe bet, especially judging by the EOS 7D Mark II features. That brand new 65 point AF system should be making its way to the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS-1D X Mark II within the next 12-18 months.

Review: Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS by Dustin Abbott

Review: Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS by Dustin Abbott

The extensive reviews of the Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS continue to roll on. This time Dustin Abbot has posted his review of the Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS.

This is another review that is quite glowing about the Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS. It looks to be a good upgrade if you have an EF 17-40 f/4L and a great choice if you need a fill frame wide angle zoom don’t need the extra stop of light that the EF 16-35 f/2.8L II provides. I have yet to seriously shoot with the lens, but I hope to change that soon.

From Dustin’s Conclusion
“This lens is good…really, really good. It is so competent that you have to stretch to find criticisms. What is even more true is that this lens is going to serve hundreds of thousands of photographers around the world very, very well.”
