So if you were getting tired of the 4K parade that’s been so prevalent at the NAB show this week, here’s a post that’ll be worth looking into. Thursday was a big day for lens announcements, with three main entries into the competition.
Last week, it was revealed that the Canon 1D X and 1D C had some manufacturing issues involving autofocusing in subfreezing temperatures. Apparently now, Canon Rumors has been given documents from an internal source with information that may have just brought a darker side of the camera making giant.
Canon just announced a new industrial camera, called the M15P-CL, and it’s one of the Japan Company’s first attempts at targeting the manufacturing market. What makes this news noteworthy, however, isn’t even that. It’s the Nikon F lens mount Canon has built on the camera itself.
If you haven’t heard by now, this month might be a good time to grab a new lens for your gear. Two giants in DSLR manufacturing have rebates in place for select lenses until the end of this month.

Their latest announcement revels a great feature call ML ISO, as opposed to “Canon ISO”. (The develpment name is a boring four letters acronym: ADTG)
The method involves quite a bit of tech, which I dont full understand, but it involves changing the way the sensor is being amplified. Tests done by Canon Rumors member Marsu42 show improvment of 1/3 to 1/2 a stop of dynamic range depending on the used ISO. [Read more...]
Scott Torborg who is known for taking cameras apart recently showed how he took apart a Canon EOS-M to its most basic components and shared his process and findings. It is quite an interesting process and we learn a couple of interesting things.
I am not sure if anyone will want to follow this at home, but the instructions are certainly detailed enough for anyone willing to take the responsibility. [Read more...]
