Along with the 85mm, 600mm, and 800mm primes and EOS R5 and R6 cameras, Canon has also announced a new zoom lens today. Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM is a super-telephoto zoom, and it’s the company’s longest-range zoom lens so far.

Canon is getting ready to announce the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 mirrorless cameras and a bunch of lenses in the next few hours, and you can watch the whole thing live, right here. It’s scheduled to begin at 14:00 CEST (1pm UK time, 8am Eastern, 5am Pacific) today, and should make a lot of people very happy. It should also help to clear up the confusion about those long-but-slow f/11 primes.
It’s always frustrating when a new system comes out for which there aren’t many native lenses yet. Sony’s early adopters know exactly what I’m talking about. But with the new wave of mirrorless cameras from Nikon, Canon and Panasonic, many more are now experiencing it. Those who take the leap are uncertain what path to take, or they hold onto their DSLRs not prepared to make the switch at all.
Well, good news, at least for the Canon shooters. Nokishita has leaked a list of six lenses and two teleconverters that they say are on Canon’s 2020 RF lens roadmap. They include some popular favourites from their EF lineup, as well as a couple that take things a little to the extreme.
Many of us are in self-isolation or quarantine right now, and it requires a lot of self-discipline. You may have extra time on your hand and you need to spend it at home. If you ask me, it’s not easy at all, especially if you live alone. Starting a DIY project will help you fulfill your time, divert your thoughts, and make something new for your photography. A perfect combo.
So, in this article I bring you some suggestions for DIY projects. I chose ten of them and focused on those that require mainly the stuff you already have. This way, you don’t have to leave home to get the parts and you can start building right now.
Well, there was bound to be a cheap “kit lens” coming along at some point for Canon’s RF mount. I don’t think anybody anticipated it having an aperture quite this slow, but here we are. Canon has now officially announced their new Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM lens for RF mount mirrorless cameras. But, for a lightweight kit lens with this kind of zoom range, it’s to be expected.
So far in this year’s DIYP gift guides, we’ve covered cameras, lenses, lights and bags. But whether you shoot stills or video, at some point you’ll likely need something to mount your camera to. So here are some of the new ones that have come out over the last year or so and the ones that we use the most.
Black Friday may be well and truly over, but there are still a lot of sales going on and we’re well into the Holiday Season now. Have you already got your loved one (or yourself) that perfect gift? If not, here are some options for you. This is the first of our 2019 gift guides, and we’re going to start with cameras. These are some of the new cameras that have come out over the last year as well as some of the steadfast favourites that we’ve used throughout the year.
It might be a little bit early to start thinking about stocking stuffers for the photographer in your life, or perhaps to even treat yourself. But while everybody’s in a buying mood, it’s worth thinking about doing now so you’re not driving around on Christmas Eve looking for somewhere open that still has something worth getting.
So, here are some of the low budget items that we use all the time for our photography, either for DIYP coverage or for our personal work. It is by no means an exhaustive list of the inexpensive products we use, but these have been the most valuable to us. So, get them for yourself while you’re in a buying mood, or start buying your photographer friends their little Christmas gifts now!
While the world is looking for bargains today, we thought we’d look at the opposite end of the spectrum, the most expensive gear we could find on the B&H website this Black Friday. Our plan was to produce a setup that, if you won the lottery, you might actually consider buying. Gear that should work well together, and costs a ludicrous amount of money.
Can we actually spend $1,000,000 on photography gear? On a kit that could actually serve a useful purpose? I mean, sure, we could spend $233K on just one lens and adapt it to a Sony, but where’s the fun in that? Ok, scratch that, it does sound kinda fun, but it’s not exactly practical, is it? And that’s what we’re trying to look at here.
