Patent: Canon Tilt-Shift Adaptor for All EF Lenses

Patent: Canon Tilt-Shift Adaptor for All EF Lenses

By Canon Rumors | August 25, 2015 | Canon Business General

Photography Bay has found a patent application that shows a tilt-shift adaptor that would work with all of Canon’s EF lenses.

From Photography Bay:

First off, the Canon Tilt-Shift Adapter has its own CPU inside and no optics. But it works hand-in-hand with the Canon EOS body and EF lenses to not only serve as a pass-through for communication but to also take on some processing burdens to make tilt-shift work on different cameras and lenses. Additionally, there are motorized drivers inside of the adapter that can drive the shift and tilt axes using controls on the camera (or the adapter itself). Read the full breakdown of the patent

This would be one highly sought after adaptor if it ever gets made and works like we’d want it to.

Canon Releases White Paper for Cinema EOS C300 Mark II

Canon Releases White Paper for Cinema EOS C300 Mark II

By Canon Rumors | August 22, 2015 | Cinema EOS News

The Canon EOS C300 Mark II is nearly release after being announced last April at NAB 2015. The biggest development in the C300 Mark II that DSLR users are hoping for, is the claimed 15 stops of dynamic range in the new camera. Currently Canon DSLRs are running at around 12 stops, which is a few stops below the competition from Sony/Nikon.

The original EOS C300 digital cine camcorder employed an innovative new 4K UHD Super 35mm CMOS image sensor developed by Canon. The readout system dissected that 4K sampling into four parallel HD components. The summation of the two green components reduced aliasing that, in turn, supported a higher Luma MTF. The new C300 Mark II preserves these basic strategies but within a totally new 4K CMOS image sensor design. The new camera is intended to significantly extend the overall image performance of HD beyond that of the C300 while further supporting the alternative 2K cinema format. A 15-stop dynamic range is provided by a new photodiode design that simultaneously lowers the noise floor while elevating the saturation level – offering excellent HDR functionality.

The Cinema EOS C300 Mark II white paper will give you all the technical information you could possibly want about the new camera.
