Canon EOS R3: Horrible News if This Happens

This would be a huge risk for the Canon EOS R3.

Canon has long been one of the few camera brands that produce their own sensors. Their latest creations have really pushed them back to the front of the pack. The EOS R5 and EOS R6 have proven Canon still makes great sensors. Canon fans are excited at the announcement that the Canon EOS R3 is coming. It’s going to be a first of its kind if they beat Nikon’s Z9 to market. A Full-Frame Mirrorless flagship of sorts. It will feature an integrated grip and mind-blowing specs. However, there’s a potential problem being theorized about this camera. It may not feature a Canon-made sensor. Read on below for more.

Hobbyist Birders Will Love It: Canon 600mm F11 IS STM Review

The Canon 600mm f11 IS STM is a super-telephoto that’s easy to use and wallet-friendly.

We recently reviewed the Canon 800mm f11, and now it’s time to take a look at its smaller brother, the Canon RF 600mm f11 IS STM.

Canon Patent For a Fast 15-45mm EOS-M Lens Shows Still Don’t ‘Get’ Mirrorless

A lot can be said for Canon’s [amazon_textlink asin=’B01LXTX4HC’ text=’EOS-M5′ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’8bfed5b7-cfba-11e7-8435-615de5638de6′], which is now just over a year old.
