Truth in advertising. You never know what to expect when it comes to the depths that manufacturers will go to make their products look better than they actually are. From photoshopped images of products to retouched photos captured from smartphone cameras, you have to be careful that you aren’t duped by marketing geniuses. For the folks over at Chinese devices-OEM Huawei, it appears that the company got caught red handed trying to pass off a rather exquisite photo of a woman with her hair catching a few rays of sunlight. The caption for the photo (the Google+ posting has since been removed) read:... Read more...
Digital SLR cameras are finally starting to catch up with smartphones! Surprised by that statement? Well, we're not talking about picture quality—DSLR cameras still and might always take better photos than smartphones—but in terms of offering basic connectivity features even in entry-level models. Such is the case with Canon's new EOS Rebel T6, an entry-level DSLR with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC support. We take Wi-Fi and NFC support for granted when it comes to most mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones, but it's not difficult to find a DSLR that lacks one or both, especially in what's...

After developing a 120-megapixel CMOS sensor five years ago, Canon is just now getting around to commercializing it in a forthcoming digital SLR (pricing and availability still unknown). Wondering where Canon goes from there? Wonder no more, as Canon announced this week that it's developed a 250-megapixel CMOS sensor.That works out to a resolution of 19,580 x 12,600, if you can wrap your head around that. When installed in a prototype camera, the newly developed sensor was able to snap photos of the side of an airplane flying at a distance of 18 kilometers (around 11.18 miles) away, with the lettering...

I've been relatively happy with my Canon T6i (750D) and its 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, but as crazy as it sounds, what Canon is cooking up has nearly 100 more megapixels to offer. More specifically, Canon is developing a digital SLR camera with a resolution of approximately 120 effective megapixels, the company announced today. That's more than double the 50.6MP CMOS sensor used in its existing EOS 5DS.This isn't entirely new ground for Canon. Back in 2010, the company developed the world's first APS-H sized CMOS image sensor with 120 megapixels, which boasted a mind boggling 13,280 x 9,184 pixels... Read more...
Canon has a new camera that will be available just in time for the holidays, but at $30,000, the model is going to be on only a few wish lists. The ME20F-SH is capable of creating the equivalent of a 4,000,000 ISO setting, which means it can capture color video in extremely-low light settings. In fact, according to Canon, it can provide “high-quality video capture even where subjects might not be seen by the naked eye.”Canon is targeting the camera at users who want to get full-color HD video in low-light situations. Typical cameras that take operate in dark environments use infrared, which results... Read more...
Canon on Thursday announced the Powershot G3 X, the newest addition to the company's G series of premium compact digital cameras. The shooter is aimed at photographers who want features comparable to a DSLR but in a compact body that's both dust-resistant and water-resistant. It's also for photographers who need a relatively high level of zoom. Despite it's compact size, the Powershot G3 X comes with an f/2.8-5.6, 25x Optical Power Zoom lens that's equivalent to 24-600mm. That should let photographers get pretty close to the action, even when sitting in the nosebleeds seats at a sporting event.... Read more...
Canon U.S.A. announced a bunch of new camera models today, including a pair of EOS Rebel digital SLR shooters that are the first in the series to feature built-in Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities. The new EOS Rebel T6s and T6i DSLR cameras also sport a newly developed 24.2-megapixel CMOS imaging sensor, offering the highest resolution available on the EOS line.The new cameras are aimed at two different types of users. According to Canon, the T6s is suitable for photography enthusiasts and those already experienced with entry-level cameras who now want to tinker with more advanced features and functions,...

Organizing your collection of digital photos is often a chore, though it doesn't have to be. There are services intended to make photo management a lot easier, including a new one by Canon. It's called Irista and it's essentially a digital image storage center in the cloud to take the place of Dropbox, Google Drive, and other similar cloud-based services. Unlike those others, however, Irista is solely intended for photographs (JPEG and RAW) -- you can't store Word documents in Irista, for example. On the flip side, by focusing on photos, Canon is able to offer some compelling features, such as... Read more...
Our apologies in advance for telling you about something that you can waste your entire day on, but this is, frankly, just really cool. Microsoft created a huge 20-gigapixel image of Seattle around which you can scroll and zoom around, but the company also enlisted the help of the Seattle art community to set up dozens of art installations around the city that you can hunt for “Where’s Waldo” style. The Microsoft team used a Canon DSLR with a 400mm lens and a Gigapan robotic tripod head to shoot 2,368 22MP images that they then stitched together using the free Image Composite... Read more...
Canon Announced the Canon EOS 70D, promising that the DSLR will offer “instant and precise” focusing in both still images and video thanks to the Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus feature and phase-detection AF. Canon also says the camera can shoot video near the quality of a camcorder, in 1080p HD at 30 FPS. The EOS 70D features a 20.2 megapixel APS-C Canon CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5+ Image Processor and an ISO range of 100-12800, with the ability to snap sharp images even in low light. It can handle SD/SDHC/SDXC and Ultra High Speed cards. There’s also a stereo microphone with manual... Read more...
If you often find yourself shooting video in the dark, you'll be happy to know that Canon has developed a high-sensitivity 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor designed exclusively for video recording. According to Canon, the new sensor is able to capture Full HD video in exceptionally low-light environments. That's especially great news for budding astronomers, as Canon says the sensor can capture clear video of even faint stars. The CMOS sensor features pixels measuring 19 microns square in size. To put that into perspective, it's more than 7.5-times the surface area of the pixels on the CMOS sensor inside... Read more...
It's almost as if Nikon and Canon are working together in order to compete. Just days after Nikon's small, full-frame D600 DSLR was unveiling, Canon has pushed out a rival: the EOS 6D. Introduced today, it's the company's smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR, with 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, a DIGIC 5+ image processor and support for built-in wireless transmission and GPS. There's also an 11-point AF array as well as a 63-zone dual-layer iFCL metering sensor, combined with 1080p HD movie capture capabilities. As you'd expect, there's a wide ISO range from 100 to 25,600, 4.5fps continuous shooting,... Read more...
Canon announced two new SX-series PowerShot digital cameras that feature impressive zoom capabilities. The new PowerShot SX500 IS offers a 30x optical zoom while the PowerShot SX160 IS offers a 16x optical zoom. Both of these super-zoom cameras feature Canon's latest AF technology to make auto focusing even faster than with previous SX-series cameras. The PowerShot SX500 IS has a 24mm wide angle lens along with a 16 megapixel sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor. You'll find a 3-inch LCD on the back of this camera. The PowerShot SX160 IS offers an optical zoom range from 28mm wide to 448mm. This... Read more...
And just like that, the mirrorless camera sector just got a whole lot more interesting. While Olympus, Sony, Panasonic and even Nikon have thrown their hats in the ring, the Micro Four Thirds / compact camera world has been missing a major player for years: Canon. But that's changing tonight, as Canon unveils its EOS M Digital Camera. It took quite a long time for Canon to get a mirrorless competitor to the market, but the specifications make clear that the company isn't taking the challenge lightly. It has the specs of a Rebel T4i, but a size that's far smaller. There's an 18MP APS-C CMOS image... Read more...
