    Here's the manual for the EOS R!

    You'r not, A9 has stacked sensor and it can read entire sensor much faster. It reads entire sensor in 1/160s which is only slightly slower than it's mechanical shutter. Other A7x bodies including (A7III) can do it in 1/15s with uncompressed RAW and 1/30s with compressed RAW. Source Jim Kasson...

    EOS R first impressions - post your hands-on impressions here

    Unfortunately not, but there was a question about compatibility with 3rd party lenses. Officially Canon doesn't care, of course, but the Canon guy told us, that on another presentation someone tested 1.4/35 ART without any obvious troubles.

    EOS R first impressions - post your hands-on impressions here

    Hard to evaluate, the presentation was indoor with artificial lighting only and part of the room was dark, but the AF didn't hunt and I think that it was limited by speed of lens motors more than by body itself.

    EOS R first impressions - post your hands-on impressions here

    Yes, the touch strip function is user defined, on one camera there was slide ISO selection, on other AF mode. And "end points" of strip can be assigned as any other buttons. But the ISO "scrooling" was very slow with strip. Unfortunately I hadn't enough time to explore all the fine settings of...

    EOS R first impressions - post your hands-on impressions here

    Yesterday I attended a local Canon EOS R presentation. If you are interested, here are my first impressions, I won't repeat usual things covered elsewhere. I'm heavy manual focus lenses user (Zeiss ZE serie), so I focused on some niche details. For about 3 years I use first A7 as my travel...

    News Flash: Good news for some, bad news for others

    I have EOS M wiht EF adapter. It's just dumb tube with contacts transfer, its sturdy and lens are not wobbling on camera. The communication protocol is same for EOS and EOS M. I suppose, Canon will keep the communication protocol for "EOS R" mount too. Canon adapter is the shortest, because of...

    Soft files from the 1dx2?

    Maybe Canon uses on 1DXII sensor stronger anti aliasing (AA) filter than on 1DX. Then you need to use more sharpening to get similar results at 100%. Same happened to me, when I switched from 1DsII (weak AA) to 1DsIII (strong AA). At 100% 1DsIII looks "softer", but after more sharpening, details...

    Sigma 1.4/85 ART RAW samples for download

    Shot handheld on borrowed Canon 6D at Sigma booth. Only f1.4. BIIG (but I wouldn't mind on my 1D). Quiet focus and reasonably fast in comparison to my 1.2/85L, but not lightning fast like 2.8/100L Macro on my 1DIV. Unfortunately I have no experience with 6D AF, maybe on my 1DIV the focus...

    DXO claim 1DX2 new class leader

    If you dig deeper beyond the single number results, it's obvious, that sensors in both cameras (1DxII and D5) are balanced slightly differently. This my produce equal "Score", which BTW. I really don't give a s..... What's truly amazing, that the new camera maintains same DR at ISO 1600 as...
