Two of his recent conceptual shoots caught our eye, and we asked him to convey the ideas behind the photos.

The New Canon EOS R6 Firmware Is Incredibly Impressive

The Canon EOS R6 won my respect with an impressive autofocus system that excels even with fast subjects and tricky lighting. But, that system just got an upgrade. Earlier this month, Canon released firmware 1.5 for the EOS R6, which adds vehicle detection, among other improvements. I downloaded the latest Canon R6 firmware to see how the new features hold up.

Great Price, Feeble Edges: Canon RF 16mm F2.8 STM Review

Ultra-wide angle lenses tend to be huge and expensive. But, Canon’s widest full-frame mirrorless prime is also one of the company’s most affordable lenses. Beat in price by only the $199 nifty fifty, the Canon RF 16mm f2.8 STM sits at just $299. At under six ounces, it barely adds weight to the front of the camera. And, it’s an ultra-wide-angle lens that doesn’t have an equivalent in the EF mount.

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.

4 Great Cameras with Image Stabilization for Your Shaky Hands

Combine them with the latest lens technology, and you’ll have something really wonderful to tote around with you.

What Is the Top Mirrorless Camera? I Shot with 5 Stunning Options

Buying a camera is a little like dating. Every camera has its annoyances — you just have to choose the one whose weird quirks are either endearing or ignorable. As the Reviews Editor at The Phoblographer, I test cameras for a living. Yet, when I decided I was done with my DSLR, I wasn’t quite sure in which direction I wanted to head next. To continue the dating analogy, I hadn’t had the this-is-the-one moment. I hadn’t yet fallen in love. I hadn’t found the top mirrorless camera for me.

Could the Canon EOS R5 and R6 Get a Big Autofocus Update?

Today, Canon announced that with the Canon EOS R3, all the autofocus modes are getting face/eye/body detection. This is similar, though not identical, to how it works with Sony, Panasonic, Leica, and Fujifilm cameras with autofocus. Canon is the only one left with Face and eye detection that doesn’t let you also select a point on the screen manually. And truly, it wouldn’t make a lot of sense for Canon to restrict this tech to just the Canon EOS R3. Instead, it would majorly drive sales of the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6.

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 the Canon RF 70-135mm F2 L Lens Still Coming? We Hope So!

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

Last year, we reported on the possibility of the Canon RF 70-135mm f2 L lens hitting the market. When we discussed it there was a lot of excitement. Canon has arguably been the innovation leader of lenses. And the Canon RF 70-135mm f2 L would sit alongside the Canon RF 28-70mm f2 L lens. Constant aperture f2 lenses are hard to come by, especially ones that are actually useful. The 28-70mm f2 launched with the Canon EOS R. And I didn’t think it was real at the time. But then I saw, used, and felt it. That’s why I think Canon may truly come out with the Canon RF 70-135mm f2 L.

Rulers of the Dark. The Best 3 Cameras with Great High ISO Output

There are lots of good cameras with solid high ISO performance, but these are our favorites.

First off, you should know that we’ve done the print tests. That’s right, we test cameras in a much different way when it comes to high ISO output. Looking at ISO 6400 on 5K Retina screen is much different than printing it. So for years now, we’ve done the standard thing for printing ISO 6400 at 17×22 inches. From there, we’ve found some of the best cameras for high ISO photography. Does your camera stack up to the competition? We dove into our Reviews Index to find three of our favorites.

Canon’s EOS R5S Needs to Be Something Very Special

We’re streaming daily on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Pocket Casts, and Spotify!

Canon used to be the king of high megapixel cameras. Team Canon wowed photographers the world over when they released both the Canon EOS 5DS and the 5DSR. These 50.4 Megapixel cameras were way ahead of their time. The amount of detail they could capture was unmatched. Still, Sony has since taken the Full-Frame crown when it comes to high megapixel sensors. The 61.2 Megapixel sensor in the Sony a7r IV is currently the pound-for-pound Full-Frame resolution king. However, this may change in the not too distant future. New reports of a high-resolution camera, the Canon EOS R5S, have surfaced. Find out all the juicy details about it, and see what we think it needs to feature to be successful after the break.

Opinion: The Canon 6D Mk III Should Be the Last DSLR They Make

The Canon 6D Mk III would satisfy the hobbyist photographers that the series was designed for.

Canon has proven that they’re capable of creating great mirrorless cameras. They’ve also said there will be no more EF lenses made unless there was a specific and high enough demand for them. But that obviously hasn’t stopped third party lens manufacturers. I also think the Canon DSLR deserves one last hurrah. This would be perfectly immortalized in the Canon 6D Mk III. And just think: Canon would basically take existing technologies that they’ve had for years and recycle them enough to not cannibalize their other products. If it ever came to be, the Canon 6D Mk III would possibly be a final hit for all DSLR lovers.
