Canon USA: Canon Professional Services

By Richard | August 15, 2018 | Canon Business General

Canon USA has released a new video discussing the features and benefits of CPS (Canon Professional Services).  Unlike other programs, the only qualification needed is how much eligible Canon gear you have.  You don’t have to have professional credentials unlike both Sony and Nikon services, anyone can take advantage of CPS.

With three tiers of photography related memberships (Silver, Gold and Platinum), Canon CPS provides a high level of support for professionals.  CPS is one of the core strengths of the Canon ecosystem, yet is often understated.

Check out the various CPS levels of membership as well as further information on CPS here.


Canon’s Official Full Frame Mirrorless Announcement Will Come After Photokina [CR2]

Canon’s Official Full Frame Mirrorless Announcement Will Come After Photokina [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | August 15, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told that most of the mirrorless hype will belong to Nikon ahead of Photokina next month. A solid source is saying that no official announcement in regards to a full frame mirrorless camera from Canon will happen before Photokina next month.

While we couldn’t confirm an announcement date, we’re told that October 2018 continues to get mentioned as a possible month in which Canon will address mirrorless. Though that may not necessarily mean an announcement for a full frame mirrorless camera.

There is still the possibility of a development announcement for a full frame mirrorless camera.

Updated models registered for certification

Updated models registered for certification

Nokishita Camera has updated their list of registered Canon models for certification.  As with all registration discoveries, these may or may not be imminent releases.  The model of PC2357 would seem to indicate a mirrorless  (powershot camera) camera with a LP-E6/E6N battery.  Perhaps a beefier M5 in the horizon or a new full frame mirrorless?

Hidden gems of Japan: Tokyo and beyond with the Canon EOS M50

By Richard | August 14, 2018 | Canon Mirrorless & Medium Format

DPreview released a video today sponsored by Amazon and Canon from Alex T. Thomas and Kathryn Bingham two photographers residing in Tokyo.

They have been in Toyko for the last 4 years studying the language and exploring Japan.  On a recent trip from Tokyo they went to a small riverside town of Gujo Hachiman, they each brought an M50 to document the trip.

Watch the video for what they discovered.

It seems that the EOS-M50, widely panned when it first came out is certainly sounding better as time goes on.  Reviews and commentary are now coming in as it being one of the best entry level cameras you can buy right now.  It seems to be a common narrative with Canon where  initial reports are disappointing, and then it gets into people’s actual hands, and it’s well regarded.

I think the M50 is an interesting indicator of future EOS-M products from Canon and where they can take the line to.  It will be interesting to follow in the months, and perhaps year ahead.

OpticalLimits tests the Canon 70-200 F4L IS II

OpticalLimits tests the Canon 70-200 F4L IS II

By Richard | August 13, 2018 | Canon Lens News

OpticalLimits, formerly known as has completed their testing of the Canon 70-200 F4L IS II.

Their conclusion? I think they like it .. and give it their highly recommended seal of approval.

From their conclusions;

The king is dead and, yes, long live the new king. The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 USM L IS II is everything that the mk I was plus some. It is the perfect playmate for ultra-resolution Canon cameras. It is mostly tack sharp at mainstream settings with no real weakness across the focal length range. Lateral CAs are low and not really an issue. Image distortions can be visible specifically at the long end though and you can spot some moderate vignetting at f/4. If you use digital auto-correction that will be a lesser concern, of course. The quality of the bokeh is Okay for a zoom lens but it has its shortcomings.
