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.

Canon 7D Mark II: The Best DSLR for Sports and Wildlife, but That’s All

When the Canon 7D came out in 2009, it soon became one of the most popular DSLRs ever. It was fast, rugged, with great video features, all for a whole lot cheaper than the more pro-orientated 5D Mark II. Five years later, the 7D Mark II makes its debut with plenty of powerful specs, yet it's not likely to be the same wide-reaching hit as the original. Read More >>

Rumour: Canon Is Testing a 75-Megapixel Pro DSLR

As camera rumours go, this one's pretty insane: Photography Bay is claiming that a reliable source has told it that Canon is testing "a pro-sized body like the 1D X", which packs a sensor with over 75 megapixels. Blimey. Read More >>

Canon 100D (SL1): The Shrunken-Down Beginner DSLR You’ve Been Waiting For

Last year's Canon 650D (T4i) was a really excellent camera. But for all its whiz-bang features like a capacitive touchscreen and continuous autofocus while shooting video, it just didn't feel special. A DLSR for beginners just doesn't make as much sense when there are smaller mirrorless cameras that can achieve similar results. So Canon shrunk the 650D down. Here's the mini version, Canon 100D (SL1). Read More >>
