Canon EOS 70D Best Camera to Use to Shoot a Weasel on a Woodpecker

Apparently the Canon EOS 70D is the best camera to use if you want to capture a weasel riding the back of a woodpecker.

Amateur Photographer has done an interview with Martin about his incredible capture.

Martin explained that he used a Canon EOS 70D and 300mm f/2.8 lens and has been a photography enthusiast for the past 12 years. He captured the photo using the camera’s programme mode.

Canon USA Price Drops on EOS 5D Mark III & EOS 6D

Canon USA Price Drops on EOS 5D Mark III & EOS 6D

Feeling the pressure from authorized resellers has probably forced Canon USA to significantly lower MAP (minimum advertised price) prices on the EOS 5D Mark III & EOS 6D. Both of those cameras have dropped a lot in price probably due to currency fluctuations. Beyond the price drops, Canon has also switched the mail-in rebate to an instant rebate and added the EOS 7D Mark II to that. Are these reductions enough to get people away from grey market cameras out there? I’m not sure.

Some are speculating that it could be the EOS 80D, while others think it’ll be a new Rebel. I’ve gone back and forth as to what I think it is. For now, I’m going to wager it’s a new Rebel. As others have pointed out, the lack of a dedicated AF-ON button makes me think it’s not an 80D or 6D Mark II.
