    Well, this sucks... Camera and Lens snapped at the mount

    Which is why I use a hard shell DJI drone backpack, rather than a softer backpack or a camera bag now. Worked great on my trip to mountain bike in Bend/Sister/Lepine Oregon

    Home for the 6D Mark II Debate

    I used the 40D for 2 1/2 years, got a 2nd hand 7D and used that for 5 years now. The 6D Mk II has been in my possession for 1 1/2 years now, through some vacations etc. The good and the bad are mostly along the following lines: The new features like touch and articulated screens, FF, Blue...

    RF mount cinema camera is in the works, but it won’t arrive any time soon. [CR1]

    They'll delay it as long as possible, to avoid giving users a lower cost/more flexible video solution to keep pushing sales of 4K ones as long as possible

    Deal: Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II $7999 (Reg $9999) and Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II $9499 (Reg $11499)

    All are great lenses but Canons history is they put lenses on sale when they discontinue a model or replace it. Either way, I would wait if you are only so-so on getting one, as when they DO discontinue it, the price will drop more.

    Where can I find good FD mount L series lenses?

    The FD 200mm f/1.8 is rare as it came along just as Canon transitioned to EOS mount lenses.

    We’ve returned to the 26.2mp sensor in the EOS RP

    Sounds about right: Canon using a sensor 2 years old from the 6D Mk ii. Doubt the price though. Nor under $2k for a FF is their mantra.

    Review: Canon’s new super telephoto lens cases

    I bought a DJI hard case for MY Canon gear, which I took on a MTB round trip around Newberry Crater in Oregon. The biggest problem Canos and most other packs is they look like they have camera gear in them, making them a target to steal.

    Patent: Canon continues to work on focal length reducers

    Nice of Canon to think about us. Reducers have been around for the telescope people for nearly 50 YEARS now. For my 8" f/10 Maksutov Cassegrain, I have a choice of a 0.63X, 0.50X , 0.40X, 0.33x and a 0.25X. For my refractor, a 0.8X reducer/field flattener has been available 30 years. I guess...

    Patent: Canon speedbooster for EOS M

    I loved my 7D mk I But the mk II was a vast disappointmen, so I went to a 6D mkII Great balance with a 200mm f/1.8 on the front. Hand holdable

    Canon EF 200mm f/1.8L USM

    I bought this lens on the basis of using it at someones optical company open house. I took a photo of him, handheld, across a warehouse at 1/15 sec and could see individual hairs on his nose. Using a Canon 40D. I held out for over a year, but all I saw online were beat-up ones released by news...

    45-200mm f/2.8 prototype from 1959 on ebay for $40k

    Lots of companies did low production runs/prototypes for lenses. Canon has the 300mm 1.8

    What are Canon's sharpest lenses?

    I agree the 200mm 1.8 is amazingly sharp, even wide open

    Video Capabilities Will Be at the Heart of All Future Canon Prosumer Camera Bodies [CR2]

    Gee after getting left behind for years they noticed "Maybe people want a 4K + video" on a prosummer camera. They didnt think the 6D II was worthy of this?!?!?!?!?!?!??! This is the reason I bought mine USED, not new. And then watched as my decision looked good as they started dropping the...
