If you had to summarize this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas in one word, it would probably be “4K.”

The NAB (Which stands for National Association of Broadcasters) Show is the world’s largest Electronic Media show, and deals largely in video. But, this year, at least one of the announcements had interesting implications for the still photography market. Read more…

Canon’s 7D Mark II Reportedly Delayed Due to Dual-Pixel Sensor Manufacturing Issues

Released back in September of 2009, the Canon 7D is long overdue for a much-anticipated refresh. The problem is, up until just recently various sources have published conflicting reports that seem to get us no closer to knowing what this camera will actually look like.

However, yesterday, Northlight Images reported some interesting news that seems to make sense and go along with some of the more plausible rumors about the impending camera. Read more…

sigmaCES_1

When Sigma announced their 50m f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens, they included some extremely dramatic statements. Not only did they say that they wanted to beat out Canon and Nikon, they intended to blow them out of the water, stating that they were aiming to make the lens as good, if not better, than the $4,000 Zeiss 55mm f/1.4 Otus Distagon T*.

Last month we shared a somewhat shady review of the lens, which came with plenty of skepticism, so today we’re sharing with you a review from a much more reputable source, SLR Gear. Read more…

A report on Canon Rumors is pointing out an issue with Canon’s flagship full-frame DSLR and its Cinema counterpart: the 1D X and 1D C.

Apparently NOT April Fools’ joke, the world’s fastest purchasable camera lens looks to have been posted — and now sold — on eBay earlier today. Supposedly in impeccable condition, with all caps and T-mount adapter included, the Canon 50mm f/0.75 went for a rather measly $500 in a quick “Buy It Now” purchase. Read more…

The Canon EOS 1 Smartphone, Powered by Android … and Sprinkled With Fairy Dust

eossmart1

From the looks of a recent rumor over on Canon Rumors, we might soon see a Canon branded smartphone. While there’s no information on what cell phone manufacturer they’re working with, it’s safe to say with Canon entering the market, this device may become the smartphone camera to beat.

What is that, you say? Look at the calendar? OhRead more…
