  • Evernote coming to Canon scanners

    The Evernote news just doesn’t stop, does it? Hot on the heels of Evernote integration with Lexmark printers and Fujitsu scanners comes word that Evernote will be integrating with the new P-150 scanners from Canon. Read More

  • Watch House? Like gadgets? Tonight's episode was the one shot on a 5D mk II


    I heard about this a little while back when they had just wrapped. The director was excited to have shot an episode (the season finale) on the 5D mk II and was answering questions about it, a bit inexpertly I think, no doubt to the chagrin of the DP who actually shot the episode. The episode is airing tonight at 8PM tonight on FOX — watch it with your friends and then say “oh… Read More

  • Review: Canon Rebel T2i DSLR camera


    Short version: An outstanding consumer DSLR and liberating video recorder, the T2i is a powerhouse media device in a small and relatively affordable package. What I think of as killer features, however, may not be viewed as such by the buying population at large. Read More

  • If you're going to scan, scan right with the CanoScan 9000F

    Let’s be honest: scanning has become a necessary evil. But as long as you’re doing what has to be done, you may as well do it right. I got decent results scanning 35mm film with an old bargain scanner, but if you’re planning on re-printing them (or re-printing prints, or what have you), you want the highest resolution possible. The 9000F will do up your film at a massive… Read More

  • Canon 5D mk III rumored to ship in 2011

    It looks like the popularity of Canon’s full-frame DSLR (and powerful, but flawed video camera) is enough to warrant another sequel. While some would say that cheaper, but equally capable cropped-sensor cameras like the 7D represent a better value, the 5D has its own charm and I’m sure Canon will be capitalizing on that — next year, if Vincent Laforet is to be believed.

  • Sweet Canon AE-1 hack makes this classic film SLR all-digital


    Greatest thing of all time? It’s at least in the running. Some very dedicated Canon lover (and DIYer) has put the guts from a modern Canon digital into the a hollowed-out AE-1, one of the wonderful old metal bodies from the early 80s. I learned to shoot on its elder sibling, the FTb, and I still love to just hold it my hands as a reminder of how things were once built. If only I could… Read More

  • JOBO announces updated two new photoGPS models

    Geotagging is pretty popular these days, but for the most part you have to buy an additional hardware. JOBO makes one such device, the photoGPS, that’s been around for a while. They just announced two new versions, photoGPS 2 and the photoGPS 4. The new models offer improved reception, battery life, and storage. All in all a worthy successor to their original product.

  • DPReview's Canon T2i review arrives


    I’ve been looking forward to this camera for quite a while, and although I’ll be reviewing it later, it won’t be quite to the level of DPReview’s 30-page monster. Flagship cameras like this one get the royal treatment from the big photo sites, and the T2i is nothing if not a flagship camera. Read More

  • The Canon 5D mk II 2.0.4 firmware fixes the mess left by 2.0.3

    The 5D mk II 2.0.3 firmware was supposed to be the end-all solution for the Canon super camera. But it wasn’t. It caused more issues not worth the enhanced movie mode it added. Canon of course of pulled the firmware from its site cause many 5D mk II owners to cry a little. Because, as everyone knows, Canon owners are notoriously emotional unlike the cool and collected Nikon crowd. But… Read More

  • Uh-ohs! Canon's 5D update pulled from e-shelves

    Well, looks like that Canon 5D mk II update that was released a couple days ago has itself a couple faults. Seems that if you set sound recording to manual while using a C* dial setting, then turn the camera off, it’ll render your camera unable to record audio at all. There are two solutions: don’t install the update until they fix it, or set sound recording to auto. We hope you… Read More

  • .canon: Canon wants to establish its own top-level domain

    Megalomania or genius marketing move? Canon seriously takes aim at becoming the world’s first company with its own generic top-level domain (gTLD), namely “.canon”. The new domain would join the likes of .com, .edu, .gov, .org, etc. (Wikipedia has the full list). The Japanese electronics giant announced [press release in English] its plan to acquire the rights for the domain… Read More

  • Canon 5D mk II update is live


    Yes indeed! The update, detailed here, is live live live! 24p, better audio bitrates, and a sandwich. Get your update on here. It’s actually been live for a while. But, you know, in case you were wondering. Read More

  • Control your Canon DSLR with a Nintendo DS

    After trying to find a way to remotely control their DSLRs, the clever hackers at HDRLabs couldn’t really find anything that would do what they wanted. So what did they do? Built a control of their own, using a Nintendo DS. HDRLabs went on to make the device available, for free. All you have to do is build one yourself. Read More

  • It's Spring rebate season for Canon

    If you’re thinking of putting down some bread for a new lens, be sure to avail yourself of the various rebates in effect. Not that you’ll save more than $50 on a purchase of like a grand, but hey, that’s a couple filters or a lens bag right there. That 85mm 1.2L II is calling out my name — too bad I’m shaking change out of my old pants for ramen money right now. Read More

  • Canon weather-sealed 70-200mm L… coffee thermos?

    This is definitely the greatest coffee thermos out there — or at the very least the best I’ve seen today. Apparently they were giving these out at the Olympics press center (or likely “centre” — those clowns), and Microsoftie Josh Weisberg was the only person there to think of putting it on the internet. A room full of photographers and no one took its picture? Read More

  • Nikon developing a Canon G11 rival?

    The Canon PowerShot G series have always been one of the best compact shooters available. See that pic above? I shot that back in 2003 with a G3. Beautiful, isn’t? That’s Camp Tapico in Northern Michigan, where I spent every summer of my teenage life. Anyway, word on the street is that Nikon wants some of the action that the G series has enjoyed all by itself for so long. Better… Read More

  • Canon 5D mk II gets 24p video, improved audio in imminent update

    Good news for those of you shooting video on your 5D mk IIs — this month will bring the highly-anticipated 2.0.3 update, which improves a number of aspects of this already-excellent camera. A 24p mode has been added, thank god, which I know a ton of people were looking forward to — and 30p has been changed to 29.97 in order to be NTSC-compatible. Audio sampling has been bumped… Read More

  • Rumors a-swirling: Canon to put out revised 1D, L lenses next week?

    Canon appears to have an actual sieve in charge of holding their secrets, since not a day goes by that I don’t hear about this or that new patent or camera just around the corner. Maybe it’s just their canny marketing division seeding leak sites, and if so, bravo. But to business: if you are a millionaire, this is probably a post for you, since everything involved is high-end. I… Read More

  • First video sample from the just-announced Canon Rebel T2i/550D

    The YouTube video looks good to us, but then again, it’s not like Canon would show off the new T2i with a bad sample video. Now, how about a full resolution 1080p video? Read More
