​Canon G7 X Review: Canon's Best Point-and-Shoot Camera in Years

Five years ago, I was broke, but I needed a great camera anyhow. The Canon S90 was the perfect fit for my needs and my credit card balance. And I wasn't the only one who thought so. The amazing S90 and successors made Canon a mint — at least until Sony's RX100 came along with higher quality images. With the G7 X,… » 10/22/14 12:15pm 10/22/14 12:15pm

Canon 7D Mark II: The Best DSLR For Sports and Wildlife, But That's All

When the Canon 7D came out in 2009, it soon became one of the most popular DSLRs ever. It was fast, rugged, with great video features, all for a whole lot cheaper than the more pro-oriented 5D Mark II. Five years later, the 7D Mark II makes its debut with plenty of powerful specs, yet it's not likely to be the same… » 10/20/14 2:00pm 10/20/14 2:00pm

Canon's Newest Ad Resembles the Life of a Real Director—Who Used Sony


For its new "See Impossible" campaign, Canon has a new video that portrays the inspirational story of a young sci-fi fan who becomes a big famous director by way of Canon camera.

Nikon Is Poised to Beat Canon at DSLR Video

Video quality in DSLRs has been fairly steady in its seven years or so on the scene. There have been minor jumps in cameras like the Canon 5D Mark III, but DSLRs have been largely eclipsed in image quality by mirrorless and new video-focused cinema cameras. Nikon, used to playing second-fiddle to Canon, is not going… » 10/01/14 3:35pm 10/01/14 3:35pm

​Canon G7 X: Canon Catches Up With a Tiny 1-Inch Sensor Point-and-Shoot

From about 2009-2012, Canon's S-series point-and-shoots were the best tiny little cameras you could buy. Then, Sony's RX100 line conquered it with similar functionality, but a much larger 1-inch image sensor that blew Canon's dinky 1/1.7-inch chips away. With the PowerShot G7 X, Canon strikes back. » 9/15/14 8:00am 9/15/14 8:00am

This Fake Lens Is Actually a Vacuum That Sucks Dust Out of Your DSLR

If there's one downside to a digital SLR that every photographer has to deal with—at least every photographer who doesn't just stick with their kit lens—it's dust getting inside the camera and on the sensor. Attempting to clean the inside of a DSLR often feels like performing delicate surgery, but this faux lens… » 8/07/14 12:21pm 8/07/14 12:21pm

Canon PowerShot N100 Has Two Cameras So You Can Take Frontback Photos

Last year's Canon PowerShot N was a weird little point-and-shoot camera with an odd design aimed at roping in the masses who have ditched tiny cameras for smartphones. It was neat, but not all the way there. With the new PowerShot N100, Canon has redesigned the camera so that it can do even more smartphone-like things. » 1/06/14 9:00am 1/06/14 9:00am
