Will The New Canon 35mm F1.2 Lens Be Innovative?

Lightweight and compact are two words that are seldom used to describe Canon L lenses. And as much as we wish, users have been anxiously awaiting the manufacturer to fulfill its hefty RF lens roadmap. Canon is reported to finally announce the long-awaited RF 35mm f1.2 L lens by the end of this year. While we are pretty sure you can expect to pay a premium, we can’t help but wonder if Canon will opt to innovate and break the mold. Or will they stick with the tried and true blueprint where photographers should bank on weightlifting before wedding season?

The Best Cameras for Multiple Exposures Without Photoshop

Multiple exposures aren’t as difficult as you’d think. I just believe technology has made us lazy as photographers; we try to do everything in Photoshop instead of within the camera. However, our cameras are very capable of doing all of these things themselves. So we’re running down a list of some of the best cameras to do multiple exposures with in-camera. You don’t need to spend more time in front of your computer; trust us.

We sincerely love receiving emails from our readers, especially when we’ve helped them and they’re curious to learn more. So that’s what happened recently with Bryan, who consented to me turning our email into a blog post. He’s owned the Canon 5D MK 4 for years, and after reading our Canon EOS R review update, he’s curious about making the move to mirrorless. But will it work for him?

Why Canon Photographers Are Going to Love Capture One 22

Our Capture One 22 review was updated recently. One of the biggest new features for Canon photographers is being able to wirelessly tether with their cameras. Previously, you needed to use EOS utility or some other method. But now, the Canon EOS R5, Canon EOS R, and others can connect to your WiFi network and they’ll be recognized by Capture One 22. It’s quite an awesome feature even if the delivery takes double the amount of time Capture One says it will wirelessly.

We’ve Updated Our Canon EOS R Review, and It’s a Beast Now

We’ve just updated our Canon EOS R review after a long time. You can see it here. No, Canon hasn’t given it any major new firmware updates for a little while. But instead, Capture One 22 has given the Canon EOS R a whole lot more usefulness. Indeed, it’s truly now one of the cameras no one should sleep on. What’s more, this is truly insane as it’s nearly the end of the life of the Canon EOS R. But in the end, it works almost as well as the Canon EOS R5 for portrait shooters. And if you like to tether, this is going to be a camera that’s very hard to beat.

Is the Canon EOS R Still a Good Camera? It’s a Pleasant Surprise!

It was Labor Day weekend of 2021. I, a small business owner and entrepreneur, couldn’t turn off the work mode: a fault many of us share. So for a little while, I took the Canon EOS R and Canon EOS R5 to the waterfront to do a bit of testing. A few questions rang in my head. Is the Canon EOS R5 really too heavy for a photo walk? Is the Canon EOS R even a good camera anymore? After all, the Canon EOS R is more or less a pivot from the Canon 5D Mk IV. It’s got the same sensor, far superior autofocus, the same build quality, but not all of the same ergonomic pleasantries. And when I bought mine years ago, I truly liked it.

Wishlist: Essential Features of the Canon EOS R Mk II

It’s been a few years since Canon announced the Canon EOS R. We admitted it wasn’t all that revolutionary when it launched. But it surely did some minor things to set it apart from the rest of the pack. And if anything, Canon’s lenses stole the show. It’s been a few years, and they’ve had a few cameras. The Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 aren’t exactly small. They’re specific cameras designed to be used for work. Many colleagues of mine and I cannot see ourselves always using them for fun or even some jobs. But when I picked up my Canon EOS R recently, I realized how wonderful the size is. And I hope that the Canon EOS R MK II fixes some annoying things.

Is It Better Than the Profoto B10? Elinchrom One Review

We’re streaming daily on Apple PodcastsGoogle PodcastsStitcherPocket Casts, and Spotify! You can also listen to it right here on The Phoblographer.

Elinchrom has been very quiet over the past few years. But today, the company is announcing its new Elinchrom One lights. They’ve been doing some reorganization, and that’s apparent with their new CEO. Simon Whittle is around 30 years old, and he’s worked with the company for many years. It’s nice to see a millennial at the head of a company, and that’s why I’ve got some new-found hope for Elinchrom. When you think of Elinchrom, you’re most likely thinking of the Ranger series of battery packs and lights. But, they’re doing something new, and these lights are totally different. Better yet, it’s not a rip-off of some Chinese-made product.

You’ll Be Tempted By This Awesome Canon EOS R Kit

For more stories like this, please subscribe to The Phoblographer.

The Canon EOS R is a camera I still use pretty often. Thumbing the D-Pad to choose an autofocus point isn’t all that awful. It’s lightweight, weather-sealed, and can focus just as well as the Canon EOS R5 in most situations. Where the Canon EOS R falls a bit behind is with autofocus situational profiles and animal eye AF detection. But if you’re shooting portraits, that won’t be a problem. The Canon EOS R has the same sensor as the Canon 5D Mk IV, which is still in use with lots of photojournalists. And with the 35mm f1.8 STM bundled, you’ll gain image stabilization but won’t have full weather sealing. Just remember that when you change lenses to turn the camera off. Check out the bundle over at Amazon.

These Deals Might Convince You to Buy a New Canon Camera

The Canon EOS R can come with the 35mm f1.8 IS STM for only $2,298.

Despite the Canon EOS R5 being such a great camera, there’s something to be said for the original Canon EOS R. It’s small, lightweight, and incredibly durable. But what’s even better is it can come bundled with a 35mm f1.8 IS USM for a good price. This is probably one of the best lenses for the camera. It boasts image stabilization but not weather sealing. Regardless, the lens is fantastic and that sensor is still very good. So we found a few deals from Canon you’ll want to pay attention to right now.
