If you are searching for a webcam upgrade to boost your Zoom or other video conferencing quality, you may already have it. Canon has released a free EOS Webcam Utility which allows many of its cameras to function as plug-and-play USB webcams on Windows computers. The idea of using a DSLR or mirrorless camera as a webcam is certainly nothing new. Many streamers already leverage these cameras using an HDMI capture card. These capture cards can be pricey – into the hundreds of dollars – and are currently in short supply. Still, they do provide the highest-quality option for cameras that can provide a “Clean HDMI-out” signal. Some cameras can provide HDMI out, but the signal... Read more...
Just as expected, Canon on Wednesday expanded its camera lineup with a couple of new models for amateur photographers, including the EOS 90D (DSLR) and EOS M6 Mark II (mirrorless). While different in construction, design, and function, both new cameras feature a next-generation 32.5-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. Canon EOS 90D Several other features are the same for each camera as well. For example, both are powered by a Digic 8 image processor and can record video at up to 4K at 30 fps (1080p at up to 120 fps). They each offer a dual-pixel CMOS AF in Live View with 5,481 manually selectable AF positions, they both have an electronic shutter (up to 1/16,000th), and they each offer built-in Wi-Fi...

It appears as though Canon is getting ready to launch a couple of new cameras. Canon Australia posted a pair of promotional videos to YouTube, one depicting an unreleased EOS 90D APS-C DSLR and the other showing an EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless APS-C camera, which also is not yet available, nor has it been officially unveiled. Apparently uploaded and made available to view in error, Canon Australia quickly realized its mistake and yanked the videos offline. However, like Las Vegas, what happens on the Internet stays on the Internet (only not in secret, because unlike Las Vegas, practically everyone is already on the Internet). The folks at Canon Rumors had the foresight to download and re-post the... Read more...
Canon is a big name in the photography world, making cameras that run the gamut from entry-level offerings up to high-end professional cameras. However, Canon has turned to crowdsourced funding site Indiegogo for its latest camera project that is aimed at bringing in new customers who also happen to be casual photographers. The camera Canon has on Indiegogo is called the IVY REC. It's a little camera that has a clip on the side and is meant to be clipped to a strap on just about anything you want to keep it close at hand. It promises to be the "ultimate go anywhere camera" with a clippable design that is lightweight, compact, and rugged. It has no screen to crack; Canon says that the clip area... Read more...
Canon on Wednesday unveiled a brand new camera, though it's not another digital SLR (DSLR). As previously rumored, Canon announced its EOS R, a full-frame mirrorless camera featuring a redesigned RF mount and a 30.3 megapixel CMOS sensor powered by the company's DIGIC 8 image processor. It can shoot at up to 8 frames per second. This is a prosumer camera that is relatively compact and lightweight. It measures 5.35 x 3.87 x 3.32 inches based on CIPA standards (5.35 x 3.87 x 2.67 inches from grip to monitor) with a body weight of 1.28 pounds, or 1.46 pounds including the battery and SD memory card. Here's how it compares (in size) to the EOS 5D Mark IV... Canon is really pushing the new RF mount... Read more...
It looks as though camera guru Canon is readying a full-frame mirrorless shooter for photographers who prefer to go that route as opposed to a digital SLR (DSLR). Called the EOS R, the upcoming mirrorless camera features a 30.3-megapixel full size CMOS sensor with dual pixel CMOS autofocus and a bunch of other goodies. Nothing is yet official, mind you, and all of the specs and photos are coming from a Japanese-language website that has leaked the details. We always caution to take these things with a grain of salt. That said, the information at least appears legitimate, and falls in line with other rumors that are out there. What's also interesting here is Canon's timing. Less than two weeks... Read more...
If you want to take better photos, the first thing you should do is put in the research, or even take a photography class, to learn things like the rule of thirds and the interaction between ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Once you have a firm grip on the basics, you'll be ready for a more capable camera than what is found on your smartphone or that discounted point-in-shoot in Kmart's sale bin. In the right hands, a digital SLR (DSLR) can take outstanding photos, and you can grab one at a hefty discount today. Over at Woot, the Amazon-owned flash sale site is offering Canon's EOS Rebel T6 DSLR with 18-55mm lens for $309.99. That is 44 percent off its $549 list price, and a good chunk below... Read more...
Canon has unveiled its latest mirrorless interchangeable lens camera called the EOS M50. Canon is very clear in calling this camera an entry-level unit, and the camera maker wants smartphone users to think of this as their step up from primary shooter. The EOS M50 will most certainly offer better image quality than any smartphone camera out there. M50 has the distinction of being the first EOS M-series camera able to record 24fps video at 4K resolution. Canon also fits the M50 with a Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which is a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor that captures images with less noise and higher definition in low-light situations. "Our core goal when developing new entry-level interchangeable lens... Read more...
Canon has announced a new digital camera that has a pair of firsts for the company's point-and-shoot camera line. The major feature of the new flagship G1 X Mark III PowerShot camera is that it has the largest imaging sensor ever crammed inside a Canon point-and-shoot camera: a 24.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor.The other big feature for the camera is that the G1 X Mark III is the first Canon point-and-shoot compact offering to use Dual Pixel CMOS AF (Auto Focus) technology. The massive image sensor promises to deliver "fantastic image quality in both stills and video." The sensor is paired with a wide-angle 24-72mm 3x zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilization. That lens has an f/2.8-5.6 aperture for... Read more...
  Just yesterday, we posted a story concerning printer security and how we should take it more seriously given IoT botnets that are swooping across the globe (namely Mirai), along with the sensitive data and documents these machines are custodians of. Today’s printers have relatively potent processors, complex operating systems and of course connect to the internet, to enable remote printing and firmware updates (among other things). Unsurprisingly, though the timing is impeccable, a hacker by the name of Stackoverflowin’ just made the case for increased security with it comes to printers. Stackoverflowin’ revealed to Bleeping Computer that he has gone on a tirade for the past 24 hours via... Read more...
Canon today is delivering a rather big update to its venerable EOS 5D professional full-frame DSLR. The original 12.8-megapixel EOS 5D was introduced in 2005, which was followed up by Mark II and Mark III updates in 2008 and 2012 respectively. Today signals the arrival of the EOS 5D Mark IV, which is just as impressive as you would expect give then four-year gap between releases. First and foremost, the 5D Mark IV has received significantly upgraded internals, going from the 2012-era 22.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor to an all-new 30.4-megapixel CMOS sensor (native ISO range of 100–32,000). The new sensor is backed by Canon’s DIGIC 6+ image processor, which allows the 5D Mark IV to shoot... Read more...
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: We managed to catch a beautiful sunrise with Deliciously Ella. The #HuaweiP9’s dual Leica cameras... 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 considered budget territory (for a DSLR). But those same amenities found in Canon's higher priced DSLRs... Read more...
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 on the plane distinguishable in the shots.It can also shoot video. The resulting resolution... Read more...
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 of resolution. However, Canon never shoved its record-setting CMOS sensor into a camera and sold... 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 in black and white video. The ME20F-SH, on the other hand, has a CMOS sensor with pixels measuring... 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. And if you're feeling shaky from all that caffeine, Canon says the improved Intelligent Image Stabilization... 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, whereas the T6i is intended for more casual photographers and/or first-time DSLR buyers.Canon T6iMore...

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 no individual file-size limitations. There are storage limits, however, starting with up to 10GB for... 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 Editor (ICE). Then, they went back over the course of a few weeks, shot each art installation with 400mm... 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 audio level adjustment that features an attenuator to prevent clipping, and Canon’s Stepping...

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 Canon's top-shelf EOS-1D X and other DSLR cameras. Both the pixels and readout circuitry employ... Read more...
