This is quite the shocker if you ask me… Canon is now offering an upgrade on the Canon EOS C100 – adding their Dual Pixel Autofocus (AF) to their cinema camera allowing for some continuous autofocusing while shooting video. I don’t think I can recall any sensor upgrade options from Canon in the past! The […]

With so many new video camera announcements, can Elle and Joe at Digital Bolex cut through the noise? This post over at Digital Bolex gives a glimpse of what may make this new cam one-of-a-kind. These first few frame grabs and a short test with their first sensor-calibrated model (incidentally named “Derek”) look very impressive. […]

A few years ago Sony changed the game when they introduced the first mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera with an APS-C sized sensor. Today via B&H, Sony announces the A7 and A7r, the world’s first mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera with a full-frame sensor. From this B&H story on the new Sony a7 and a7R Sony has […]

We’ve warned you before, but this is serious enough that I feel a reminder is necessary – Lasers can DESTROY your camera’s sensor! We’ve got some new samples – including the destruction of a RED EPIC (and I talked to someone in chat who had his Canon EOS C300 sensor burned as well!). Our first […]

Canon has just added the Canon EOS 70D to the APS-C crop sensor line up. It looks to be very capable mid-range DSLR. They’ve added the WiFi that was introduced in the Canon EOS 6D, but did not include the GPS that was added to the 6D. The biggest feature they’re touting on this release […]

Ever since the day that the guys from RED showed me the RED for the first time, I thought that the modular camera body concept was brilliant. We still see bits and pieces of that across the camera industry, but it is yet to become really prevalent. Here’s a concept camera that was posted on […]

In an interesting turn, the DxO team looked at both the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Nikon D800 cameras – and many have seen the report on the Nikon D800 saying it was about the best sensor on the market… well, it turns out they’ve looked at the two cameras with excellent lenses and […]

On the “Canon5DMarkSeries” yahoo group, a member (Don Marcotte) has been very interested in finding out about the high ISO performance of the Canon EOS 6D – so he managed to visit his local store and they let him do some “dark” tests – by placing the body cap or lens cap on the camera […]

There have been a number of reports of abnormal amounts of sensor dust on Nikon D600s – and the dust (or is it oil?) is internal – as this timelapse below shows – but we’re also seeing reports that it doesn’t seem to happen after about 3000 shots. Weird huh? Read on to find out […]

Last year, we posted about how dangerous lasers can be (see post) for your HDSLR sensor and now, there are other examples popping up on youtube. So this is just a reminder of how dangerous they can be – just in case you didn’t know! It isn’t a problem taking video of a laser show […]

Canon has announced some new stuff today at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) – but no new HDSLRs or DLSRs. There are a few new Powershots – which you can read about over on canonrumors.com. The vast majority of this announcement is dealing with video cameras. Do we in the HDSLR world care? Well, maybe […]
