2020 wasn’t the best year for camera companies (or for anyone else for that matter). But still, some new gear was introduced and millions of cameras were produced after all. So, there are some numbers to compare, and Sony seems to be winning the numbers game. According to a recent report, it beat both Canon and Nikon when it comes to mirrorless cameras produced last year.
That Canon R5 has overheating issues is now a well-known fact. Still, the demand seems to be so high, that Canon is forced to delay the shipping of its new camera. Or is it really because of the high demand? According to the latest reports, the delays are expected precisely because of the overheating issues.
It turns out that a recent $6,700 price “leak” for the upcoming Canon EOS R5 was made in error. Canon Rumors reports that the Australian retailer who initially placed the AU$10,499 price tag on the EOS R5 listing on their website said they “don’t have a clue” what the EOS R5 will actually cost and have now removed it.
Instead, the retailer has adjusted its listing to an AU$200 deposit, which will simply hold your place in the waitlist and reserve your body as they come in after they are inevitably released.
2020 has just begun and it looks like it will be an exciting year when it comes to Canon cameras. According to the latest reports, Canon might introduce three new mirrorless cameras over the course of 2020. And what’s more, the first of them may come as soon as next month.
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.
The pursuit of ultimate optical clarity has been the goal of lens manufacturers for decades. When you look back on the lenses of old, they have vignetting, sharpness issues, weird bokeh, chromatic aberration and all kinds of “problems” (some people refer to this as “character” and is exactly the reason why they like those old lenses).
But Canon’s RF mount takes a step closer to that optical precision that they strive for. In this four-and-a-half-minute video, Canon explains why the RF mount is such a big deal, and what makes it so much better than the EF mount used in their DSLRs.
Canon EOS R was launched two months ago, and so far we’ve learned a lot about it and seen a couple of reviews. But there are still some features that you may not know about. And in this video, ZY Productions brings you five things that the Canon EOS R hides among its settings. Did you know about them?
