  • Some of our client editors who want images quickly for inclusion into online content (for example) require "not greater than" files sizes that can limit us to 8-12mpx. They do want to have to wait ...
  • So I've probably now got the same set up in R mirrorless as I use in EF DSLR. The 1dxIII can be replaced at end of economic life next year by the R3 and the R5 has replaced the 5Dsr. When the 6D ...

  • and two card slots!. agree -I  have used 6d and 6dII for similar school/sports team for about 6 years. The 6D will do 150K if looked after, but the 6D II need shutter work about 120k, although to ...

  • For me the 5dsr, finally ended a thirty three  year run with the Pentax 645 and 6x7 formats. To be fair the Pentax's star had been waning for about 10 years prior. Since the 5dsr, the D850 and ...
