The best full-frame camera out there right now

I have been doing research lately, because I want to purchase a new camera (maybe a couple of them, not sure yet), so I thought I'd put together my thoughts on full-frame cameras available these days. Before we get started, I need to make it clear from the get-go that there is no absolute best [...]

My favorite vantage point for photography

I was invited by the folks at Light, who are working on some pretty interesting camera technology, to write about my favorite vantage point. I explained to them, as I'm explaining to you now, that I don't have one. I get bored with shooting the same locations and I'm always on the lookout for new [...]

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens

Quite possibly the best lens Canon makes. Every time I've used it, I loved it. Rugged, reliable, gorgeous optics. This second version of the lens is even better than the first. Buy it here: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras

Canon EOS 6D DSLR

Full frame (35mm) and 20 megapixels of resolution. This one is paired with the excellent EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens, which I've owned for years and I love. It features a 20.2 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS sensor, a wide ISO range of 100–25600, expandable to L: 50, H1: 51200, and H2: 102400, and a DIGIC 5+ [...]

Camera preview: Canon EOS M

As I announced back in June of 2010, Canon has been at work on a mirrorless camera and they've finally launched it. It's called the EOS M. It uses a new EF-M lens mount and its specs are pretty much what we expect mirrorless DSLRs to have these days. It ships in four colors: black [...]

Is Canon at work on a mirrorless “DSLR”?

Given the popularity of, and interest in mirrorless "DSLRs" like the Sony NEX-5 or NEX-3, Olympus E-P2 or E-PL1, Panasonic GF1 or G2, and the Samsung NX-10, I believe Canon is at work on their version of the "micro-DSLR", and has been for at least a few months. (Why do I use quotes when I [...]

Camera preview: Canon PowerShot SD780 IS

I had the chance to look at the Canon PowerShot SD780 IS Digital Elph camera recently, and was impressed by the beauty of its design, its diminutive size, and its features. This camera is truly small. Being used to holding DSLRs, holding this camera in my hand was an unusual experience for me. It's so [...]

Camera preview: Canon EOS-1D Mark IV DSLR

The Canon EOS-1D Mark IV pro DSLR was officially announced by Canon today, October 20, 2009. The specs are really good and they show Canon's been hard at work on a solid response to Nikon's latest DSLRs. Many photographers were disappointed with Canon because of their 2008-2009 DSLR product releases, which didn't seem to keep [...]
