Earlier this year there were rumors that Canon was working on a full frame mirrorless camera. The camera was rumored for a launch at Photokina, but obviously that did not happen. Instead we got the Canon EOS M5 which honestly based on the specs and features and design, is a marked improvement over Canon’s previous mirrorless efforts.
About a week ago, leaked photos and specs revealed Canon’s next-gen mirrorless camera, the EOS M5. What got us particularly excited about the EOS M5 is that it seems to be quite a departure in terms of design compared to Canon’s previous EOS M cameras, and it looks like it is now official.
We’re not sure why but despite their decades of experience in the camera business, neither Nikon nor Canon have managed to release a mirrorless camera that could be considered a commercial success. In fact it would seem that Canon and Nikon have been ceding that market share to the likes of Sony, Fujifilm, and Olympus, just to name a few.
The last time we saw Canon release a mirrorless camera was back in 2015 with the Canon EOS M3. So now that we’re in 2016, does that mean we can expect a new mirrorless from Canon? According to the folks at Canon Rumors, the answer is yes, and that we will most likely be seeing it by the end of the year.
Canon’s EOS 5D lineup has always been preferred by photographers who require slightly more professional gear. There have been rumors that Canon has been working on a new EOS 5D model called the EOS 5D Mark IV, and now thanks to the folks at Japanese website Digicame-info, photos and specs have been leaked.
For professional photographers, shooting in RAW during an assignment is almost always the standard operating procedure. For those who aren’t professionals, the reason for shooting in RAW is that it doesn’t get processed by the camera’s image processing engine, meaning that the image captured isn’t compressed or filtered.
Compact cameras are great for when on holiday since they can easily slip into your pocket. This is versus larger mirrorless or DSLR cameras in which you might require a separate bag to keep the camera, its lenses, and other accessories. Now if you’re after a compact camera, Canon has recently taken the wraps off the PowerShot SX620 HS compact.
Are you looking for a macro lens that won’t break the bank? If you are, you might be interested to learn that Canon has recently unveiled their latest macro lens in the form of the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM. This is a lens that is priced at $300 which is relatively affordable, but given some of its features we reckon it might even be a value for money […]
If you’re in the market for a new camera, you might be interested to learn that Canon has recently announced a new Super 35mm Multi-Purpose Camera in the form of the ME200S-SH. As you can see in the video above, this camera is obviously not your average camera as it has clearly been designed with professionals in mind.
A report from last month suggested that we could be looking forward to new mirrorless cameras from Canon this year. In fact one of the rumors suggested that Canon could be following in Sony’s footsteps by releasing a full-frame mirrorless camera, and now thanks to Canon Rumors, additional details about Canon’s plans have been revealed.
When it comes to mirrorless cameras, it would seem that companies such as Sony, Olympus, and Fujifilm appear to be dominating. More “traditional” camera companies like Nikon and Canon have released mirrorless cameras in the past, but to date their efforts haven’t exactly been as successful compared to the likes of Sony.
While compact cameras have indeed come a long way from back in the day, what with companies like Sony introducing compact cameras with 1-inch sensors, it’s still a bit hard to compete against DSLRs which not only have larger sensors, but also the flexibility of being able to swap between different lenses.
Right now the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge probably have the best smartphone camera available in the market. Not only is the aperture pretty wide at f/1.7, which helps with low-light photography, but it also boasts an incredibly fast autofocusing system thanks to the use of a souped up version of phase detection where up to 4M pixels are used at any given time.
A couple of days ago, we reported on leaked specs and photos of the upcoming Canon EOS 80D.
