    Interview: Talking with Canon about the EOS R system and its future

    "The number of pixels itself is the same as EOS 5D Mark IV, but the sensor itself is newly developed. The content has changed a lot, such as adoption of a new dual pixel CMOS AF and arrangement of microlenses according to EOS R system. " really? it's the same old tech, adjusting the angle of a...

    Canon officially announces the Canon EOS R system

    @miketcool " A few Sony A series cameras allow a full sensor readout where the processor either compresses info, or samples a few pixels instead of all of them. This leaves you with video that is noisy and not sharp. It’s not turned on by default and Sony sets a 1.5x crop factor for video. Even...

    Canon officially announces the Canon EOS R system

    Starting the new fast zoom at 28mm is a bit of a bummer, having 24mm is awfully nice. Maybe they will also come out with say an f/2.8 one that does 24mm-70mm? It does seem that the new mount distance does allow for some potentially superb performance at the edges or for ultra fast lenses.

    Canon officially announces the Canon EOS R system

    How updated is the sensor? are they finally to the modern age of a Sony sensor or is it still same old low DR Canon as always? Gotta finally be a truly modern sensor no??? At least the video has 10bit external (that is huge) although they still seem afraid to lead the pack. Why not jump ahead...

    Low Pass Filter?

    at this still modest density it's better to have a low pass filter, so it's good that it does

    Lots of Talk, Very Little Solid Information About Canon's Next Cameras

    Yeah, just about every piece of camera gear I purchased from 1986 until recently was Canon, but I finally got sick of their coasting on past laurels BS. I tried for years to warn people that Canon was just gonna deliver blah stuff and that they needing pushing, but got called a troll. When you...

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

    That might be a smart move. I purchased nothing but Canon (well than for a couple Tamron and one Rokinon lens) from 1986 until a few years ago, but they haven't gotten a dollar from me in a few years now.

    Magic Lantern Gets 4K Video Working on the EOS 5D Mark III

    doing it on your free time with no insider info turns 5+ years of ML time into like 3-4 months of Canon engineering time, if even

    Canon USA Announces Canon Log Feature Upgrade for the EOS 5D Mark IV

    Certainly helps, but should have been there to begin with and then $99.... when a two year old Sony will still produce better quality 4k and who knows what the next one does.... ah well, whatever it's been a few years since I have purchased a single item of any sort from Canon a shame

    Crop Factor Change for 4K on Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Included in Coming Update & More

    Re: HiCrop Factor Change for 4K on Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Included in Coming Update & More although 10bit option would sure be useful, the RAW video on 5D3 that is more like 11-12 bit is a HUGE step up from 8bit, 10bits really is a huge deal compared to 8bits gotta figure a Sony will be out with...

    Crop Factor Change for 4K on Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Included in Coming Update & More

    Re: HiCrop Factor Change for 4K on Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Included in Coming Update & More might actually become useful for video, Sony stuff has just produced so much nicer quality I personally couldn't even be bothered with the 5D4, now if they could just make a version without the special...

    Lensrentals.com Puts the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II Through Testing

    The 24-70 2.8 II does suffer from focal plane tilt problems and it's very hard to get a uniform copy across the board, probably would need to try at 8-12 copies. But it has insane micro-contrast, it's pretty much APO and reject LoCA amazingly well, it starts super sharp anywhere remotely near...

    Lensrentals.com Puts the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II Through Testing

    50mm is the weak spot of the 24-70 IS but I find I tend to shoot the least at 50mm which often seems boring on FF and I bet most people shoot 90% near the extremes of the ranges of zooms. I bet 95% of my shots with it were 24mm-35mm or 65-70mm. Of course your mileage may well vary.

    Lensrentals.com Puts the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II Through Testing

    I liked my 24-70 f/4 IS until I sold it for a 16-35 IS. I thought it was vastly better than any copy of the 24-105 IS I ever tried, none of which ever cut it for me at the wide end for landscape quality. I was also way pro 24-70 f/4 IS over the 24-105 f/4 IS. The former was a good deal faster in...
