    Canon Goes All In On EOS With C300 Digital Cinema System, New DSLR

    In this evening of dueling announcements (RED announced their compact high-res camera system tonight as well), Canon has shown that it’s serious in the area of digital cinema with its new Cinema EOS system. The first camera in the line is the C300, a compact camera that, contrary to expectations, doesn’t produce a 4K image. They’ve instead focused on maximizing the performance… Read More

  • Canon’s New Professional 1D X Goes Full Frame, Improves Video

    Canon’s New Professional 1D X Goes Full Frame, Improves Video

    Canon has just announced the next version of their flagship 1D series of professional DSLRs, the EOS-1D X. It’s faster and better in just about every way, and few of you will be lucky enough to use one, since it goes for just under seven grand. But for the people who have used the 1D Mk III and Mk IV for the last few years, it’s looking like a worthy upgrade. Read More

  • Canon To Bring Smooth Aperture Adjustment Rings To DSLRs?

    Canon To Bring Smooth Aperture Adjustment Rings To DSLRs?

    If you’ve been in photography for more than ten years, you probably remember the way things used to be on old film cameras. There was no electronic interconnect between the lens and the body, so lens-related functions (focus, zoom, aperture) were on the lens and body-related functions (ASA, shutter speed) were on the body. That changed as autofocus and auto-exposure, particularly on… Read More

  • Canon Gets In On The AirPrint Fun, Allows For iOS Printing On A Three Printers

    Canon Gets In On The AirPrint Fun, Allows For iOS Printing On A Three Printers

    AirPrint allows for iOS printing on a select number of HP printers. Well, that list just got a little more competitive thanks to a Canon. This marks the first non-HP option for AirPrint. Previously, users had the choose of HP laser printers or HP all-in-ones or, you know, HP photo printers. Now, the PIXMA MG8220, MG6220 or MG5320 all support wireless iOS printing, which makes the world a… Read More

  • Canon Updates Classic PowerShot Cameras, Announces The S100 & SX40 HS

    Canon Updates Classic PowerShot Cameras, Announces The S100 & SX40 HS

    Canon took the wire this morning to announce two new significant point & shoot cameras. The PowerShot S100 replaces the much-loved S95 while the PowerShot SX40 becomes the company’s latest mega zoom shooter. Both hit at respectable price points and bring impressive new features including the DiGiC 5 processor that promises better low capture, improved color accuracy and even less… Read More

  • Canon Unveils New Line Of PowerShot Digital Cameras

    Canon Unveils New Line Of PowerShot Digital Cameras

    Nothing goes better with back-to-school clothes than a nice little point-and-shoot. Thus, Canon’s timing couldn’t be any better. Today the new PowerShot digital cameras are making their debut, and from the looks of it, Canon has its bases covered. We have three new models: the PowerShot SX150 IS, PowerShot Elph 510 HS, and the PowerShot Elph 310 HS. Most impressive by a mile is… Read More

  • Canon Lens Shot Glasses, For Drinkin’ And Shootin’

    Canon Lens Shot Glasses, For Drinkin’ And Shootin’

    Lens-related ephemera seems to be a soft spot of mine. Canon thermoses, Canon mugs, Nikon Mugs, Nikon bracelets — the fun never stops. Or, alternatively, it never starts, if you’re a Pentax user. All you get is great cameras and an amazing lens selection. For the photographer who likes a tipple now and then, or just loves things that look like lenses, consider these twee 24-105mm… Read More

  • Head-To-Head Review: Canon T3i Vs. Nikon D5100

    Head-To-Head Review: Canon T3i Vs. Nikon D5100

    With HD video recording, great image quality, and a solid selection of lenses, the Nikon D5100 and Canon T3i are on the top of a lot of wish lists out there. For people already in the Canon or Nikon camp (full disclosure: I’m a Canon man), the choice is obvious if an upgrade is in their future, but for the less dogmatic and new recruits to the DSLR crowd, it’s not nearly as clear-cut.

  • Canon’s X Mark I Mouse Lite Is A Jack Of All Trades

    Canon’s X Mark I Mouse Lite Is A Jack Of All Trades

    All-in-one. That’s my golden word. If you want to sell me something, make sure it can do ten completely random never-would-have-expected-it-to tasks, and I’m in. Three-in-one is only slightly less enticing, but still worth a good inspection. Canon. today introduced its X Mark I Mouse Lite — a three-in-one calculator, keypad and laser mouse designed by the Canon camera team. Read More

  • Canon's T3 Gets A Tiny Bit More Colorful With Red, Brown, Grey Options

    In order to extend the news cycle a bit, companies tend to release variants of their gadgets on an extended schedule. Case in point: the T3 DSLR was announced back in February, and we are supposed to believe they just now achieved the level of technology required to paint them colors other than black! I kid, I kid. But only kind of. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Canon SD1300 IS Point And Shoot For $70 At Radio Shack

    This is a great deal for a solid point-and-shoot — the Powershot SD1300 IS was $200 a year ago when it came out, but if you’re near a Radio Shack, you can drop by and pick one up for only $70 — if they have one. I’d call ahead. With 12 megapixels, a 4x zoom, and a 2.7-inch screen, it’s not breaking any records, but you can trust it to take decent pictures (or make… Read More

  • Both Nikon And Canon's Image Authentication Systems Busted

    A Russian white-hat security firm, Elcomsoft, has found that Nikon’s system of determining whether an image from one of their cameras has been tampered with is vulnerable to circumvention. Are you on your way to court with photographic element? Read this. Read More

  • Technicolor Teams Up With Canon For New Digital Cinema Tools

    One of the main objections to video shot on DSLRs is that it’s instantly encoded using a lossy codec, and as a consequence much latitude in color correction is lost. Canon might be taking that particular bull by the horns, though, with this new collaboration with Technicolor. Read More

  • New Carl Zeiss Lenses Are So Nice, They Come In Their Own Briefcase

    Carl Zeiss just announced a bundle of prime lenses for both Canon and Nikon DSLRs. The bundle includes five prime lenses ranging from a 21mm f2.8 to a 85mm f1.4. All the lenses fit conveniently in a waterproof case, custom fitted for the lenses. These would be great for filmmakers and photographers or anyone with a spare $6000 lying around. Press Release after the break. Read More

  • Canon To Auction Off Some Shiny Colored T3s To Benefit Japan

    I wish every Canon could come in shiny colors like these T3s. But no, they are only limited editions, and tomorrow Canon will release them with matching camouflage¬†straps and protective wraps. The special editions are a part of Fashion Week, where Canon will be hosting some events, during which four of these cameras auctioned off to benefit Japan. Read More

  • Canon Ambiguous On Mirrorless Camera Plans

    Last year, we heard Canon was vaguely planning on getting into the M4/3 camera market. More recently Canon Europe’s head of consumer imaging, Rainer Fuehres, said that Canon has no need to enter the mirrorless compact system (CSC) segment. Read More

  • Transfer Super 8 To Digital… The Hard Way

    Three from James Miller on Vimeo. James Miller wanted to transfer this old Super 8 movie shot in 1979 to digital. Instead of, you know, using ready-made gear or services, he attached a mask to a Canon 5DMK2 and ran the film a frame at a time past the sensor, syncing the frames with the camera’s recording capabilities. The results are impressive, to be sure, but according to Miller the… Read More

  • Canon Throws Its Weight Behind Intel's Thunderbolt

    There are no products to announce or anything, but Canon has decided it’s going to saddle up with Thunderbolt, Intel’s new high-speed interface. It’s doubtful that it will be integrated into cameras being released this year, since like most companies it wasn’t included in pre-release development, but you can expect the next generation of DSLRs and maybe even… Read More

  • Canon Launches New Powershots, We Write Post About Them

    Have you ever wondered what it looks like when a camera company releases a barrel full of new cameras on the evening following the Super Bowl? You’re about to find out. Because Canon, AKA Sunday night ruiners #1, have done this thing. Because this is when we all shop for cameras — right after returning semi-comatose to our homes and passing out after a day of wings and lite… Read More
