While I usually enjoy a good crush on the hydraulic press every now and then, this one felt particularly painful. In its latest video, the Hydraulic Press Channel decided to crush two vintage Canon and Nikon SLR cameras followed up with the complete decimation of a lens (which actually puts up a pretty good fight). It…
When you’re trying to convince photographers that an $11,000 camera lens is a worthy investment, sometimes you need more than a list of specs. So Canon created a short stop-motion video of its EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM lens disassembling itself and revealing all of its wonderfully complicated internal components.
This week’s season finale of Star Wars Rebels promises to pack an emotional punch for fans waiting to see Darth Vader and Ahsoka Tano duke it out, but on top of that, it may show that Disney’s Star Wars canon is accepting elements from a part of the old Expanded Universe many dearly miss: Knights of the Old Republic.
Canon’s very happy with all the people clamoring to buy their cameras for filmmaking despite not necessarily knowing what words like “rolling shutter” and “aperture” mean. Their latest DSLR is perhaps more explicitly geared towards filmmakers than any camera it’s made before.
You probably really want Canon’s new $6,000 flagship DSLR. But if you were on the fence, the beautiful noise it makes as its shutter flicks open at 16 frames per second—like a kind of soothing machine gun rat-a-tat-tat—might just convince you.
Hot on the heels of Nikon with its D5, Canon has announced its new flagship DSLR. Say hello to the 1D X MarkII, whose overkill will surely be embraced by professional photographers everywhere.
What makes a great small camera? For some, it must have comfortable controls. For others, it must actually fit comfortably in a pants pocket. So picky! Canon’s two new high-end compacts have two different beautiful exteriors that almost make me forget their few key shortcomings.
This isn’t art, though it may look like it. Instead, it’s a striking look at 17 years of progress in snapping digital photos in low light. How times have changed.
While it’s not close to the size of the old Expanded Universe, the new Star Wars universe is filling up fast. This lengthy infographic contains every movie, comic, book and video game out now or in the works that will be make up the new canon, helpfully listed in the order they occur.
Anyone who’s ever been frustrated at the task of shooting video in low light should be poised to freak out over Canon’s weird and amazing new camera. It’s a video camera that shoots full HD color footage in almost complete darkness.
Back in February, Canon teased the development of a new premium superzoom camera aimed at enthusiasts. They have finally taken the lid off completely with the announcement of the Powershot G3X. It looks neat, but may lack some important features of its competitors.
Massive continuities are a blessing and a curse for the epic franchises that dominate popular culture. There’s a rich lore to draw on, but how do you keep the complicated backstories understandable to newcomers? DC Comics and Star Wars have taken very different approaches, that illuminate the importance of the past in…
Canon’s new high res DSLR, the 5DS, shoots giant 50 megapixel images. That’s a crapload of resolution you probably don’t need. But it’s fun to look at anyways! We had the privilege of toying around with a pre-production beta sample of the camera. Here are the results.
With the Expanded Universe obliterated, the Star Wars canon is looking a little thin at the moment. Still not sure what goes where? Here's a new official infographic that shows you where the books, movies, and TV series all fall.
The photography trade show known as CP+ is about to take place in Japan. It's prior to this when many camera makers trot out their shiny new wares. And that they have! Here are the best of the lot so far:
I guess the megapixel war is back on! Canon just announced two new DSLRs, the 5DS and 5DS R, that pack 50 megapixels of resolution. That makes them the highest resolution full-frame DSLRs ever to grace our presence. But big giant humongous images don't come without a price.
When a franchise is around for four decades, it can get impossibly unwieldy to try and grasp its lore — and Star Wars canon is no exception. Here's a guide to the origins of Star Wars Canon, the rise and fall of one of the most prominent Expanded Universes in fiction, and where the saga stands with Disney today.
Canon just announced the Connect Station CS100. It's a set-top box that interfaces with your camera for viewing all your photos and videos right on your TV.
