Looks like Canon has some serious plans to jump into the mirrorless camera market. The company’s G1X camera announced last month has a sensor large enough to compete with existing mirrorless cameras, but lacks an interchangeable lens system. A new patent filed by the company, however, reveals a new 18-45mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens for an APS-C mirrorless camera. It was filed back in 2010, so it seems that the company has been working on a mirrorless camera for quite some time now.
Here’s the first episode of Shutterbugs, the new web series we mentioned a couple weeks ago that’s geared towards photo enthusiasts. Each episode is pretty short — this one is just 3.5 minutes long — and a new one will be released every Tuesday. You can also follow the show by subscribing to the channel through YouTube.
Shutterbugs is a new comedy web series geared towards photo geeks:
Set in Melbourne’s creative heart of Fitzroy, Shutterbugs centres on analogue photographer Chloe and her socialite best friend Samantha. Together they get into trouble as they trespass, steal and bend the truth during their various photography exploits. Trying to keep them under control is Isaac, an OCD portrait photographer who secretly harbours a crush on Chloe. Rounding out the crew are unhinged video blogger Bo and malicious time-lapse specialist Trent, who takes joy in tormenting the others. The show follows the gang as they undertake crazy and dangerous adventures, all in the name of taking a good photo.
The season kicks off on September 27th, and a new episode will be released every week on Tuesday. Finally there’s a show focused on photography humor (similar to what What The Duck did for web comics), but let’s just hope it’s well done.
