  • If anyone hasn't seen it, the McCullin documentary that came out in 2012 is well worth seeking out.

    There was meant to be a movie adaptation of Lynsey Addario's autobiography but it seems despite...

  • Drone shots have started to appear in the competition in recent years, nearly always in the landscape/environment shots. Animals and drones usually aren't the best mix. That said, sometimes the...

  • In my experience, bricks and morter stores will let you investigate gear before buying it. And a lot of these stores aren't holding massive stocks where they can have a demo unit for every body ...
  • There was a long period at the start of coronavirus lockdown when demand for webcam vastly outstripped supply and people wanted anything that would work. Plus there's a real vogue at the moment for...

  • Replied in Cinema EOS C70
    Canon presumably hope that one day they can wind down EF product development and EF-M mount is the wrong niche to appeal to the typical cine camera buyer. Plus compared to EF, an RF mount means it ...
  • Are you sure about that? 1GbE tops out around 120MB/s after overheads. That's less than mechanical drives can hit (up to 200MB/s, at least for sequential access), and much less than SSDs (500MB/s ...
  • That's my current theory as to when pixel-shift will come along. Once they've done the R&D they could announce it via a firmware update to the R5 but then the narrative is about (almost) matching ...
  • Officially the camera won't run with the door open but it shouldn't be too difficult to jerryrig the mechanism that detects the door is open/
  • I don't think it's a protect the cinema line thing. I believe they still see stills cameras as primarily things for still photography and cinema cameras as things for video and you don't ...
  • Replied in R5 Photos
    Does it detect when the screen is rotated inwards and shut it off? If so, does that also trigger the EVF to come on even if you're not looking through it? I read somewhere that the interval timer ...
  • Who's talking about a 400/5.6? You could stick a x2 teleconvert on en Ef 400m f/5.6 for the same focal length & aperture (and that would be more flexible) but that wasn't the claim.  The claim was ...
  • They already sell a 600 f/4. It's large, heavy and expensive. The 800 f/5.6 even more so. The only reason these f/11 lenses are light, small and cheap is because they are f/11. There's no way to ...
  • He nails it when he says it's terrible marketing.  They over-promoted the 8K and HQ modes and put too many of their eggs in the baskets of video-centric reviewers.  A lot of the release-day ...
  • The main issue with taking stills from video is shutter speed. The rule of thumb for good looking video is that the shutter sheet should be twice the frame rate (known as the 180 degree shutter ...
  • I don't think this review has been shared here yet. https://www.davidnoton.com/despatches/3/Canon%20EOS-R5%20-%20The%20Field%20Trial
  • I disagree there. I think the R5 is the 5DIV successor; it's a bump up from 30MP not a decrease from 50MP of the 5Ds. There will also be a seperate R5s and will be circa 80MP (and will be the ...
  • I think the RP line is safe (although it may gain a number instead of RP mk II.). It was launched at $1300 and now sell at $999. The R6 is simply in a different price bracket, so the RP will ...
  • I would have said the R6 is the new R. It gives up a few MP, but otherwise better everywhere else and a similar initial price bracket. I can't see them doing a R II and having it compete on price ...
  • Increasing the ISO will help with exposure, but it doesn't help if the camera can't autofocus accurately and consistently in the given light level.  This video seems to confirm that the latest ...
  • I think this video does illuminate (pun intended) some of Canon's thinking behind their f/11 lenses.  A scene three stops brighter than the night-time lion is still going to be a fairly dark. So ...
