Hacking the Canon Connect Station CS100

Hacking the Canon Connect Station CS100

By Canon Rumors | March 18, 2018 | Cinema Accessories

It looks like a group of folks is working hard to “hack” the Canon Connect Station CS100 for fun and to add some functionality to the unit.

You can read about the progress at the Hak5 forums as well as at GitHub.

I’ll admit I’m not sure what all of this means, but for the technically inclined, this might be a worthwhile read.

thanks Holger

Review: Canon EOS M50 by Cinema5D

By Canon Rumors | March 15, 2018 | Canon Reviews

Cinema5D has completed their hands on review of the Canon EOS M50, Canon’s latest mirrorless release. The review is mostly positive for the new mirrorless camera, although they do describe the 4K implementation as an “afterthought”, which isn’t what most people wanted from this camera.

From Cinema5D:

The Canon M50 is a nice, powerful and affordable little entry-level camera for people who want an interchangeable lens camera having to schlepp around a huge amount of kit. The video function is very good mainly because of the incredible Dual Pixel Autofocus in HD, whereas the 4K is clearly an afterthought and can’t really be used in practice much because of the crop and the lacking Dual-Pixel AF. The main purpose of this camera will be uncomplicated family shots or vlogging – both of which only if HD is enough. Read the full review

The Canon EOS M50 is scheduled to be released on March 26, 2018. You can preorder the EOS M50 here.
