    Canon EOS 90D promotional video appears to have leaked

    HDD failure is inevitable, which is why I backup photos to the cloud (when I finish processing them) and optical media (once a month). Flash memory cells can be written to a limited number of times, then it fails. Good memory cards do wear leveling, but it only delays the inevitable. Then...

    Patent: Canon RF 50-80mm f/1.1, because crazy is good

    Well I can assure you that the stories you hear with this man if nothing else, has been watered down. It turns into a 645 lens, 1,200mm-3,000mm f/0.7, which he doesn't cart - gravity doesn't mess with Chuck Norris' photo equipment. This is how the Hubble telescope was put into orbit - it was...

    Is RED about to announce the first RF mount video camera?

    Happened to a friend of mine, who owned a store. A manufacturer asked to return a bunch of merchandise, as a court ruled it was infringing on another manufacturer's copyright and ordered a recall. My friend replied he's sorry, but he already sold it. I asked him if he wasn't afraid the lie would...

    Canon will reclaim their full-frame megapixel crown [CR1]

    I was hoping for more technical details.

    Canon will reclaim their full-frame megapixel crown [CR1]

    I rarely print larger than poster. Technically, how would 80MP lead to better IQ than my 5DmkIII's 22.3MP?

    Canon will reclaim their full-frame megapixel crown [CR1]

    Reminds me of a joke... A dude goes to a BMW dealership and orders a top model with all the options. After three weeks the car arrives, and the dude goes out to show off. He stops in a red light next to a Volkswagen Veetle upgraded to the teeth. He opens the window and asks the beetle driver -...

    Canon will reclaim their full-frame megapixel crown [CR1]

    Which MILC does not require an adapter to mount tilt-shift lenses?

    RED already reverse engineered the RF protocols? That was quick...

    Canon working on another f/2 zoom lens for the RF mount [CR1]

    Because everybody and their sister will be buying 100MP crop sensors, *and* will want to squeeze every last pixel out of it. Yeah, sure. 1. It shoots nearly 10fps, sufficient for a large enough number of photographers. 2. There are photographers shooting with a Hasselblad H6D-400c, which has...

    Canon EOS 90D Specification List [CR1]

    I agree there's a lack of RF lenses, but it seems Canon is going to resolve this one. My point the smaller number of EF-M lenses, by itself, does not lead to the conclusion there's a lack of them.

    Canon EOS 90D Specification List [CR1]

    It doesn't make sense to make an EF-S/M equivalent for every EF lens. E.g. The crop equivalent of EF 500mm f/4L IS USM would be, for all practical purpose, an EF 300mm f/4L IS USM, which Canon already makes.

    EOS R / RF 24-105mm f/4L First impression.

    Reviews gave me the impression it is better than the EF 24-105mm f/4L, but still in the "not great not terrible" category. Interesting to read someone thinks better of it. I dislike Canon's neck strap. Bought a replacement years ago, and keep it from upgrade to upgrade. I'm considering a...

    Canon announcements coming at the end of August [CR2]

    I kinda wonder why Canon hasn't upgraded it to EF-S 15-45mm f/2.8. It's the crop equivalent of 24-70mm, and there's an EF-M 15-45mm already.

    Industry News: Sony Introduces the High-resolution A7R IV with World’s First 61.0 MP Back-illuminated, Full-frame Image Sensor

    Augmented Reality MILCs? Wake me up when that happens. And, mind you, Canon already has a 120MP 9.4 fps APS-H sensor, just not in a MILC (yet?).

    Patent: Canon working on lens cap technology!

    I dislike the idea. One has to move four parts to open the lens, rather than one. If one of the hinges breaks, the customer has to leave the lens in a lab to be fixed, rather than buy a cheap plastic cap. It isn't a real lens hood replacement, because it doesn't cover the corners. Also, the...
