Why the High Res Canon EOS R Needs to Be the Stuff of Legends

Canon EOS R

If Canon wants to win back the trust of their faithful, the next Canon EOS R camera needs to be something special.

We all know Canon needs to produce something special when it comes to their next Mirrorless camera; they are falling so far behind the competition. The Canon EOS R was already outdated when it launched in October of 2018. The Canon EOS R was using a four-year-old sensor, it only had one card slot, and its video features were severely crippled. It’s a good camera, but not a great one. For Canon to get back to their glory days, they need to show the world what they are capable of. And if recent speculation about the specs of their Next EOS R camera is correct, they may have something special on their hands. Find out more about what might be in store for Canon fans after the break. Continue reading…

First Impressions: Canon EOS 90D (Yes, a New APS-C DSLR)

Despite its mirrorless efforts, Canon continues its commitment to DSLRs with the brand new 32.5 Megapixel Crop Sensor Canon EOS 90D.

Canon finally entered the Full Frame Mirrorless market with the EOS R and EOS RP. But the company has reaffirmed its commitment to the DSLR market with the announcement of the Canon EOS 90D. The Canon EOS 90D is the successor to the now three-year-old 80D. The 90D incorporates several notable advancements, including a higher resolution 32.5 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor (up from 24.2 Megapixel in the 80D) along with the company’s latest Digic 8 imaging processor. The Canon 90D also sports a Dual Pixel AF system featuring 45 cross-type AF points, and in Live View mode, it can detect human faces. It’s also capable of capturing up to 11 frames per second in continuous shooting mode using the electronic shutter (10 fps when using the mechanical shutter). Canon generously invited us down to Atlanta last week to spend some hands-on time with the 90D, head on after the jump for our first impressions.

Editor’s Note: Canon paid for this trip and all expenses associated with it. But our coverage is done with full transparency.

Are you the sort of person who thinks that digital photography is as unexciting as shaving? Then read on…

Review: Argus 50mm f3.5 Cintar Hacked for Canon EOS

One of the keys to developing your own photographic style is getting a look that nobody else has. Since cutting down my photography kit to three primes, I’ve thought about what else I could add to get a different look while mixing in my own knowledge of photography to the pot. Then one day, while looking at an old camera on my desk, I decided to hack the lens off of an old Argus C3. After hours of internet research, I found that nobody has created an adapter for the lens to Canon EOS mount. So I took it to a machinist and had the lens custom adapted to my 5D Mk II.
