I Pitted Canon’s ‘Affordable’ EOS RP Against My Beloved Sony A7 III

The £1,400 Canon RP is not the best camera made or even the slickest mirrorless camera. It will win no awards for dynamic range or colour rendition, and if you’ve got strong feelings about the number of megapixels available in post-production, it will leave you uninspired.

The Marvel Approach Won’t Work for Star Wars, According to Kathleen Kennedy

The similarities between Star Wars: The Force Awakens and A New Hope are as plentiful as they are obvious, because even though the newest trilogy introduces a whole slew of new characters, the story being told about bringing balance to the Force is the same. Respecting the original Star Wars films was always an important part of J.J.
