Could Third Party Lenses Make the Canon M Mount More Popular?

The Canon M Mount has been snickered at by just about everyone except those living in Asia. Cameras like the M100 and the M50 have made Canon’s first Mirrorless platform a raging success in Japan, but elsewhere it has not been well received. This is partly because Canon dropped the ball on M Mount lenses. Until the new M6 II was announced, things were super quiet on the M Mount front. Sigma, though, has just shaken things up by announcing that three of their popular APS-C lenses will be coming to the platform. The trio of lenses (the 16mm f1.4, the 30mm f1.4, and the 56mm f1.4) are available now at bargain based prices. Join us after the break for all the details....

Scopio Is Like Netflix for Stock Images, But We’re Not Entirely Sold on It

One company is Vi Vante and its new camera strap, the Vi Vante Classic Tread is a great example.

Did Any of You Know About This Mechanical Automatic Lens Cap?

If there is an accessory that’s harder to keep up with lens caps, then I’m not sure I want it. Lens caps are, of course, super important. They protect the front element of our expensive lenses from debris like dust, dirt, and sand, and they do a mighty fine job of protecting them from scratches when in storage. As great as they are, though, they can be a pain to keep up with and are easily lost. An image of a fully automatic screw-on lens cap recently appeared on the web though, and we wondered, just how many of you knew about it?

An 8-Core Surface Laptop 3 Could Be What Photographers Need

The cameras we use have become much more powerful in the last couple of years, and as a result of this, they create much larger RAW files than they use to. This is a good thing as it means that the images you capture are packed full of detail that would not be there otherwise. The downside to this is that you need much more powerful computers to process these images efficiently. Fortunately, computers are also becoming much more potent. Microsoft may be readying an AMD powered Surface Laptop 3 that will handle huge RAW files without breaking too much of a sweat. Join us after the break to find out more....

Could the Canon 1DX MK III Be Canon’s Last DSLR?

Why Haven’t the Megapixel Wars Ended, and Why Do We Care So Much?

Cameras have been coming out thick and fast over the last few years. Whenever a new body hits the market, it never fails that the standout feature that camera manufacturers like to highlight is the Megapixel count of the new sensor. Sony’s new A7R IV has a groundbreaking 61 Megapixel sensor. The Canon 90D and M6 Mk II have a 32 Megapixel sensor which is the largest ever made for APS-C. As we’ve all heard, a new high-end camera from Canon may well feature an 80+ Megapixel sensor when it hits the streets, but why are we focusing on only that? The one thing all of the announcements have in common is that they center around the Megapixel count. Why do we care so much about this one metric, when in all honesty, it’s not that important. Let’s talk about this after the break....
