If You Value Your Photos, Here’s a Good Reason to Turn Off Your Camera’s Wifi

By now, most people who spend any time online know the importance of ensuring their software is up to date, using an antivirus app, and avoiding the darker corners of the internet to avoid getting infected by malware that locks your files until a ransom is paid. But don’t assume it’s just your computer being targeted; your fancy digital camera and all your precious photos could be at risk as well. Read More >>

Canon Stabs Tradition in the Back With Camera That Supports Vertical Video

Canon’s G7 X line has long been a favourite of photographers who wanted a travel-friendly camera that could still capture high-quality images. But with the rise of smartphones and the decline of point-and-shoots, Canon began pushing its compact cameras towards vloggers, who I’ve seen use cameras like the G7 X and Sony’s RX100 line as a backup or more portable alternative to a big mirrorless or DSLR cam. After all, when you’re attaching a camera to a gimbal or the end of a GorillaPod, every extra bit of lightness make a camera easier to handle. Read More >>

Canon Stuck a Smartphone Lens Into a Flash Drive For This Tiny Clip-on Camera

Now that the optics and sensors in smartphones produce images on par with what you’d get from an affordable point and shoot camera, Canon has decided to just go with the flow and build a tiny barebones shooter that looks about as small as a USB flash drive that it’s decided to bring to life via crowdfunding.

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. But the Canon RP is one of the cheapest full-frame mirrorless cameras available and just good enough to give you the glimpse of a photography future you might not have been able to afford up until now.

Canon’s EOS RP Is the More Affordable Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera We’ve Been Waiting For

When Canon announced its first full-frame mirrorless camera in the EOS R, there was a lot of excitement. But just making one camera was a bit of a head-scratcher when everyone else was releasing two at a time. Nikon released two versions of its mirrorless platform in the Z6 and Z7, and so did Panasonic with the Lumix S1 and S1R. On top of that, the EOS R doesn’t quite have the specs, resolution, or video chops to really satisfy pros, while its £2,300 (body only) price tag makes it a tough sell to newbs or amateurs looking to upgrade. But with the introduction of the new 26.2-MP EOS RP, Canon’s full-frame mirrorless master plan is starting to make a lot of sense. Read More >>

Canon EOS R Review: Beautiful Photos, But Mistakes Were Made

The Canon 6D was my first grown-up camera, back in 2013. I loved how Canon’s colours looked like the best version of reality, and how sharp its glass was, and the 6D was the most affordable way to get into full-frame photography. As the years went on, though, I came to believe the mirrorless cameras were the way of the future, and Canon was slow to adapt, so I jumped ship for Sony in 2015. I still missed that glass and those colours, though. Read More >>

Genius Photography Hacker Makes Adapter to Attach Giant Zoom Lenses to the Game Boy Camera

When it was released 20 years ago, it didn’t matter that the Game Boy Camera took terrible, low-res, black and white images. It was a digital camera kids could buy if they saved up enough pocket money, and the fun factor far outweighed the device’s technical limitations. Even today there’s still a rabid fanbase for it, including designer Bastiaan Ekeler, who managed to hack together a Canon EF lens mount adapter for the toy. Read More >>

Canon’s Next Flash Is Trying to Be Idiot-Proof

Using a flash is what separates photographers from people who got a good camera deal on Black Friday. Flash photography can be hard. There’s light theory and mathematics at play. Use a flash incorrectly and the images you’re making are often uglier than if you’d never used a flash at all. Canon’s hoping its new 470EX-AI flash unit changes that. Read More >>

Canon’s EOS M100 Is Another Apathetic Attempt at a Mirrorless Camera

Interchangeable lens shooters like the Sony A9 are evidence that mirrorless cameras can not only compete at the highest levels of photography, but they’re probably also the eventual successors to DSLRs. So you’d assume that a company like Canon would have made strong inroads into the mirrorless market by now, but with cameras like the new EOS M100, the company is still treating the mirrorless market as an afterthought, not the future.

Those plans have now come to fruition, with the company preparing for a test launch in March. Read More >>
