Lomography has announced Petzval 55 mm f/1.7, a new lens that brings vintage and modern together. It was inspired by Joseph Petzval’s First Portrait Lens from 1840, and it’s compatible with modern Nikon Z, Sony E and Canon R full frame mirrorless cameras. It lets you control the aperture with the dual aperture system, which allows you to achieve all sorts of creative effects and control the bokeh to your liking.

Last month, Chinese company KIPON announced the first line of third-party lenses for Canon EOS R and Nikon Z cameras. ELEGANT, a line-up of five prime lenses for both Nikon and Canon, is now available for ordering in case you want to treat your full-frame mirrorless camera with a new lens.
One of the biggest grips about the original Canon EOS R and the EOS RP mirrorless cameras, along with only one card slot and the 4K crop, was the lack of in-body image stabilisation (IBIS). Canon’s word on the subject was basically that they didn’t feel their IBIS tech was at a point yet where it was worth implementing. They just weren’t happy with it.
Canon promised it was going to be coming at some point in the future to EOS R cameras, though, and now that future seems to be close if Canon Watch is correct. There have been rumours that IBIS is coming to the 1DX Mark III, but now it seems one may be coming to the next EOS R mirrorless camera, too.
This is the strangest thing I’ve heard in a long time, but according to Canon Rumors, Canon is working on an EF/RF hybrid mount mirrorless camera that doesn’t use any kind of lens adapters. They’ve marked the rumour as a “CR2”, indicating that the information has come from a known reliable source, but I just can’t imagine how this is even possible.
Even though Canon only makes two full-frame mirrorless bodies, they have been working on their EOS M APS-C mirrorless line up. And it seems to be paying off. According to the BCN ranking, which collections point of sale data at retailers throughout Japan, Canon is leading the way, at least for September.
This was one of the biggest complaints about the Canon EOS RP, and some of Canon’s other cameras, putting users off purchasing. That’s the lack of 24p (23.976fps) video. The EOS RP does actually shoot 24p, but only in 4K. It’s not there if you want to shoot 1080p. It’s not the only camera that lacks 24p for all video modes, either.
According to an email send to DPReview, though, Canon says they’re going to be introducing 24p mode via firmware updates for the EOS RP, along with various other newer EOS and Powershot cameras – including the G7X Mark III, EOS M6 Mark II and EOS 90D.
Two years after announcing the EOS M100, Canon is introducing its successor, the EOS M200. Canon hasn’t changed much in terms of design, but there are some other improvements you may find useful. First of all, the new M200 is capable of shooting 4K, and it has improved autofocus. Let’s dive in and see the remaining specs.
Astrophotography-specific versions of cameras aren’t all that uncommon for camera companies to announce. Nikon’s done it in the past with the D810a and a few others, and so has Canon with the EOS 20Da in 2005 and the EOS 60Da in 2010. Now, Canon is looking to update, with an Astrophotography version of the EOS R mirrorless camera, according to a leaked manual.
