Using a flash is what separates photographers from people who got a good camera deal on Black Friday. Flash photography can be hard. There’s light theory and mathematics at play. Use a flash incorrectly and the images you’re making are often uglier than if you’d never used a flash at all. Canon’s hoping its new…
Here are two different toy figures of minotaurs. Which one is correct? Wikipedia tells us that Ovid does not tell us anything at all about the configuration of the original Minotaur, beyond that he was part human and part bull. So any combination of bull parts and human parts should theoretically work.
Interchangeable lens shooters like the Sony A9 are evidence that mirrorless cameras can not only compete at the highest levels of photography, but they’re probably also the eventual successors to DSLRs. So you’d assume that a company like Canon would have made strong inroads into the mirrorless market by now, but with…
The $2000 Canon 6D Mark II is the first ever refresh to Canon’s cheapest full frame camera, the Canon 6D (now Canon 6D Mark I), and it might actually fix all the Mark I’s problems.
Halloa and well met, people on my post-apocalyptic mail route! Not gonna lie, this week’s group of questions forced me to think extra hard about canon vs. quality, why America doesn’t care about Judge Dredd, if Back to the Future’s Doc Brown is a time-traveling hypocrite, and more. Hopefully it’s worth it! (For you, I…
In 1992, my dad left his shoes on top of his car. He saw them an hour later on the feet of a guy walking down the road. Those shoes fared better than the $1,000 camera owned by this kid’s dad.
You’ve never truly known what kind of gunk lives beneath the keys of your keyboard until you’ve seen them melted off in hi-def macro photography.
Canon has completely failed at mirrorless cameras. Meanwhile, competitors like Olympus and Sony have both embraced and excelled at the format, which gives you DSLR quality images in a significantly smaller, and mirror-free body. Canon has languished. Last year it even dragged it’s feet on giving American audiences a…
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.
I’m in the midst of reviewing the new Sony A7r II camera. One of the most pleasant surprises so far? Just how fast autofocus can be with Canon lenses and a Metabones adapter. Watch my video above, and see what an amazing improvement this is from anything that came before.
