    The Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II is finally on the way

    How long will last the G series? In the light of the contracting market described by Canon themselves, I wonder if there will still be an "enthusiast compact" segment in the near future...

    The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III seems to be getting closer

    Raw over wifi is painfully slow. If you need it, grab a micro sd reader and the USB OTG cable you need to plug it directly to your phone. It worked flawlessly for me while on a long trip without pc for backup. I saved everything on my android phone (1 copy on the phone SD card and 1 copy saved...

    Birding With An M6

    Thank for your reply Alan. I saw that the softness was an issue. I know what I can get from the M6 sensor when I crop from the 22mm at F/8. But I found some samples on the web where the 55-200 is sharper. Maybe I have a rather bad copy. On those cheaper lenses, copy to copy variations can be high.

    Birding With An M6

    I recently bought an M6+EVF+55-200 at a great price. Coming from an eos M1, the ergonomic improvement is dramatic. The 55-200 is my very first long lense, so I tried to shoot some birds of prey not far from home. As a total newbie, the results were… bad. Well, the 200mm was real short for the...

    Patent: Canon Image Sensor Stabilization

    Do we have enough feedback on how those IBIS behave with time? I mean, does a floating sensor whistand 10 years+ of normal use? It seems that the floating elements can be a weak point on some lenses. Am I right? I know it's totally old fashionned to think about long term usability, but it's how...

    Canon PowerShot SX70 HS officially announced

    if you add the "not-so-crazy" idea to see a Canon-built 1" sensor, the next G7X could be a great one! (DPAF+EOS UI)

    Breaking down the latest Canon gear to appear for certification

    the EF/EF-S ecosystem comes from a time where the market was very different. Canon made the choice to drop the in-brand compatibility between APSC and FF system, AKA "the upgrade path". I understand it can bother some. But you have to think about the main benefit : - the smaller mount allow for...

    Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 Coming for Photokina [CR2/CR3]

    22mm => 35mm equivalent field of view 32mm => 50mm equivalent field of view As primes both have their own use-cases.

    Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 Coming for Photokina [CR2/CR3]

    I agree a 50mm really pancake seem difficult, but Something more like the EF 40mm f/2.8 is maybe possible? As you pointed out, some designs are jumping from one mount to another. We didn't see little brothers for this 40mm yet. maybe a jump from FF to APSC is not that simple.
