    Stock Notice: Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM in stock at Adorama

    Envy being a deadly sin, I guess I'm going to hell… The colors are probably very warm, there, I can't wait to test my camera under those conditions!

    EOS RP bricked

    That scares me a bit, indeed! This week-end, while attending a marathon (not as a runner, sadly), I missed shots because my RP was dead for a moment. I turned it off and on again without success, and it started working fine again a few seconds later. Still, I missed a beautiful couple wearing...

    Canon has released firmware version 1.3.0 for the EOS RP

    I went to the climate march yesterday and tested my improved RP. Oh! With tens of thousands of pairs of eyes to choose from, this baby was so happy, as was I with the face and eyes tracking.

    Canon’s New DP-V3120 4K Reference Display Delivers Unprecedented HDR Capabilities

    Yeah… But I heard that this monitor can't even film 4K without cropping: Canon is doomed, I'm switching to Sony!

    Lensbaby and the RP

    A friend has lent me his lensbaby for the summer, but my RP doesn't want to have anything to do with it: the shutter release doesn't do anything at all. My hypothesis is that the RP doesn't detect the presence of the lens and refuses to take a picture. I didn't find anything in the preferences...

    Canon officially announces the RF 85mm f/1.2L USM

    It seems reasonable (and even sometimes useful) to complain about the cost of things we need to pay for (electricity, food, public transit, etc.), but not so much for things we want but easily can do without, like a photoshoot or an amazing new lens… It would be totally irresponsible for me to...

    If you go R/RF?

    Of course, using the full aperture would not be mandatory in macro, but let's not forget that the EF 100mm f/2.8 is a great portrait lens. Wouldn't the RF 100mm f/1.2 also be?

    If you go R/RF?

    Does your 70-200 f/2.8 work flawlessly with your RP? There must be something wrong with mine, I can only use it in manual focus mode.

    GPS tagging with Camera Connect App - how to stop disconnecting?

    I haven't even been able to make it work in the first place… I really feel dumb!

    If you go R/RF?

    For now, the RP is very pleasant to shoot with, but when the RX comes out, I might very well upgrade. As for lenses, I've rapidly grown fond of the lens ring. Clever thing! The kit lens for the RP, the 24-105 f/4, would be perfect at f/2.8 or better, though. I'm new to 24-105, I enjoy the...

    Anything shot with the RP and L/RF glass:

    Here are two other photos. Again, what is wrong with my settings? Should there be so much noise in the background at 100 iso?
