    Why has Canon omitted 24p 4K recording in their new cameras such as the EOS M6 Mark II, EOS 90D and EOS RP?

    Isn't it obvious? Canon collects the tears of its users to make potions that give upper management immortality. I saw this on the internet so I know it is true.

    Canon EOS 90D promotional video appears to have leaked

    So better connectivity, more pixels, and tilty-flippy screen over the 7DMII, plus AF enhancements. It will be interesting to see how 7D series users react to it. (I'm at least three years from replacing any of my current cameras, so I am just going to sit back and watch the show.)

    Canon increased its global market share of still cameras in 2018

    Oh noes! Holga just introduced their digital cameras, AND THEY ARE MIRRORLESS! Can Sony survive?

    Patent: Canon to have three image stabilization systems working together

    So you can say, "Well yes, the entire city was destroyed by the magnitude 9 earthquake, but look how sharp my photos are!!!!!"

    Just some shots of our old friend Turdus migratorius having lunch. Mostly seeing how cropping the photo would turn out. . Canon 7DII, 70-300 DO.

    No crop on 4K coming in next APS-C DSLR [CR1]

    I think Canon would be better off retaining the 7D branding and announce the end of the X0D line. If they feel the need to fill the segment below that, create something like a "Rebel Pro." As has been discussed before, the 7D market is more likely to invest more in lenses and other goodies than...

    Just curious, an f/stop question

    Thanks for the answers everybody. For work I take a lot of sports photos in dismally dark high school gym while I take wildlife photos in full sun for fun. That's what made me think about this question. Well that and the price difference between f/2.8 and f/4 zooms. (I use the Tammy 150-600 for...

    Just curious, an f/stop question

    All other things being equal (build quality, low dispersion elements, etc.) are there any significant differences between fast (f/1.8-2.8) and slow (f/5.6 and slower) lenses when shooting with a f/11 or smaller aperture?

    Canon announces the Canon IVY CLIQ+ (Zoemini S) and Canon IVY CLIQ (Zoemini C) instant camera printers

    It's a gimmick, but that's not a bad thing. If youth is their target audience getting them used to the idea that they can use a camera that isn't a phone might make them more likely to pick up a better camera when they get older. Who knows, maybe even the idea that prints are fun may even come...

    Canon EOS RP Specifications & Images

    Picked up a 6DII on great Black Friday special to go with my 7DII, so that puts me out of considering another body until at least 2022. I expect by that time most of the R teething pains will be history and Sony will no longer bother to sell cameras but simply send sensors directly to DXO for...

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

    Yes, the next blah blah Canon will get horrible reviews ... blah blah ... ... then go on to outsell the competition two to one.

    Weird lens behavior

    I have a friend who has a 60D with a kit lens (18-135, I think) and she is having an odd problem. We both take photos of high school sports. In the last few days, her camera has exhibited an odd behavior. Through the viewfinder, the image jerks in random directions two or three times before...

    Better tutorials, are there any?

    Just added a 6D to my 7D (both M ii's) and followed some recommendations to look for tutorials on YouTube to figure out some of the different features on my new camera. Nearly every one assumed that this was my first camera ever. So are there videos out there that assume I know that Tv affects...
