Some people (camera geeks like me) are often wanting to know what camera or lens a movie or scene was shot on… and come to find out the Indiewire folks also decided to collect that info for films shown at Sundance this year. The good folks at Indiewire posted this news item and we’ve collected [...]

An amazing video you have to watch! This is Tommy-T the Cheetah running at top speed and is filmed at 1200fps with a phantom camera speeding along side by the National Geographic team. There’s a behind-the-scenes video as well which really puts it all into perspective – oh, and there are at least 4 Canon [...]

A bit of a rant about blogging vs real journalists and getting the facts right. The example here is where it was reported that the Canon EOS-1D X is virtually the same body as the Canon EOS 1D C, except for a firmware difference allowing the Canon EOS 1D C to shoot 4k. Which by [...]

It has been widely reported (and we think incorrectly so) that the Canon EOS-1D X and the Canon EOS 1D C are physically the same camera and only separated by a difference in firmware – implying that Canon is charging about $7000 for the additional 4k in the firmware. We haven’t reported it as we [...]

The folks over at United By Photography have pointed out something rather cool that I’ve not seen before – manuals you can see on the LCD of the camera in question – produced by Canon themselves for the Canon EOS-1D X. How come I didn’t see this before… good idea! from United: Canon have produced [...]

With all the cameras recently announced (like the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Nikon D800) and many of them having the features you indicated you wanted in the last poll, we thought we’d ask the question again! If you don’t recall, back in Dec 2010, we asked you what features you wanted in [...]

It’s the year 1991. I’m a kid on a beach in St. Petersburg, Florida trying to capture another amazing sunset with my new awesome camera. This was the day I first learned about the inadequacies of digital photography. That picture I took . . . sucked. The sunset didn’t look nearly as magical as it [...]

Craig over at CanonRumors.com sent us this article – a hands on review of the Canon EOS-1D X by Ron Martinsen. A snip from Ron’s blog At Photo Plus Expo in New York last week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Canon Advisor of Technical Information Chuck Westfall and a reporter from Rangefinder [...]

Last week, we posted “Side by side: Nikon D4 Vs. Canon EOS 1D X – which should you buy?” and got some good feedback, but this week, we thought we’d use this as the poll question and made it simple, you can pick one or the other but nothing else. If you’re not happy with [...]
