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.

Two New Big White Lenses Coming Next Year [CR2]

Two New Big White Lenses Coming Next Year [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | July 19, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told that an internal presentation roadmap from Canon includes two “big white” lenses coming in 2018. The slide in question did not mention specific focal lengths, likely to help prevent what I’m typing right now.

One of the big white lenses could logically be the EF 600mm f/4 DO IS that Canon showed back at the 2015 Canon Expo.

The second of the two remains a mystery at this time. There has always been some rumblings about an updated EF 200mm f/2L IS and EF 800mm f/5.6L IS, but nothing has come to fruition.

2018 is a World Cup of football/soccer in Russia and the Olympic Winter Games in South Korea and Canon generally makes a professional gear splash for these events.

We also have Photokina to look forward to in September of 2018.

The previous release of “big whites” saw two releases in pairs. First the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II & EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II came, followed by the EF 500mm f/4L IS II & EF 600mm f/4L IS II a few months later.

Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.12 Adds Support for Canon EOS 6D Mark II & More

Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.12 Adds Support for Canon EOS 6D Mark II & More

By Canon Rumors | July 19, 2017 | Third Party Software

From Adobe:

The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom.

Today, we also released versions of Lr for iOS and Android that provide updated camera support. Check them out here.

A few clarifications for this release:
What happened to Lightroom CC 2015.11/6.11?

Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw releases are tightly coupled as both products share the Camera Raw imaging technology.  As a product team, we decided to skip Camera Raw version 9.11 and instead use 9.12 due to the unfortunate events that occurred on that day. In keeping our version naming consistent, Lightroom is releasing CC 2015.12 / 6.12.

Will performance enhancements that I requested via the survey here be in this release?

Lightroom CC 2015.12 / 6.12 does not include performance improvements based on your survey responses.  We appreciate your candid feedback on Lightroom performance, and are working on several projects to address your concerns.

Canon Cinema EOS C500 Mark II Talk [CR2]

Canon Cinema EOS C500 Mark II Talk [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | July 18, 2017 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

The Canon Cinema EOS C500 has probably been the biggest bust in the Cinema EOS lineup by most accounts. While it was the first 4K cinema EOS camera video specific camera, it was deemed overpriced when compared to the competition and and people were more interested in using the highly successful Cinema EOS C300 and its 4K follow-up the C300 Mark II.

We’re told that Canon is working on a follow-up to the C500 and that it will become the highest resolution video camera in the lineup. The Cinema EOS C700 has a 4.5K sensor, so we suspect it will match or slightly exceed that resolution. We’ve tried to find out if 6K is an option, but we were unable to.

Canon going to 6K with a Cinema EOS camera at this time doesn’t seem very Canon-esque, but maybe they’ll change the way they do things going forward.

The very large price drop on the C300 Mark II down to $9999 may be a clue that we’ll have a new camera priced around $15,000 in the coming months.

Canon has shown an 8K  Cinema EOS prototype, but I think it’s safe to say we’re more than a year away from seeing an 8K product from Canon.

The last three paragraphs are opinions of ours, and we hope we’re wrong and Canon pushes the boundaries a bit.
