Besides the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS, What are the Other 3 Lenses Coming?

Besides the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS, What are the Other 3 Lenses Coming?

By Canon Rumors | July 20, 2017

That’s a great question and we are only getting very vague answers from people that know what’s coming. We’re told that the 3 lenses shown in the certification documents are going to be a “series”. The “series” of lenses has also been described to us as “high-end”. If we go by the certifications, the three Read more…

Behind the Scenes at Canon’s New Burbank Technology and Support Center

Behind the Scenes at Canon’s New Burbank Technology and Support Center

By Canon Rumors | July 24, 2017 | Cinema EOS News

Canon recently opened its new technology and support center in Burbank, California. Select media outlets were invited to take a peak and DPReview was one of them.

From DPReview:

According to Elliot Peck, Canon Imaging and Technologies’ Executive Vice President, the project to build this new center started about a year ago when Canon realized that it was effectively out of space at its old Hollywood location. Canon designed a completely new facility from the ground up and took the opportunity to move to Burbank, at the heart of the filmmaking industry.

Part of the service facility is the lens room, where technicians can test and verify lens performance after repair. The room might be better described as a very wide hallway, stretching about 65 ft. (20m) in length. The extra distance allows technicians to mount lenses up to 600mm on a master body to check for optical alignment and resolution, meaning that all but a couple very specialized Canon lenses can be tested here. Take the full tour at DPReview

I’ve visited Canon’s Hollywood support center and came away impressed, but this new facility looks even better.

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Dynamic Range Talk & Sample Images

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Dynamic Range Talk & Sample Images

By Canon Rumors | July 20, 2017 | Canon DSLR News

Full production Canon EOS 6D Mark II camera bodies have started hitting the desks of reviewers. With that, we are also seeing a lot of sample images and sensor talk.

DPReview has completed a dynamic range test and have found that the EOS 6D Mark II isn’t a step forward in this regard. Base ISO dynamic range is not as good as the EOS 6D in early tests, though the EOS 6D Mark II does squeak out slightly better dynamic range performance at higher ISO’s than it’s predecessor.

From DPReview:

….it seems the benefits that appeared in the sensors used in the EOS 80D and EOS 5D IV have not been applied to the latest EOS 6D II, and the new camera has less dynamic range than we’ve become used to. Graphs plotted by regular DPR collaborator Bill Claff illustrate this pretty clearly. In this article, we’re taking a look at what this might mean for your images. Read the full test

Obviously dynamic range isn’t everything and the sensor is more capable than that in the EOS 6D, but it is a bit disappointing there hasn’t been a bigger advancement from Canon in this regard.
