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...
  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...
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...
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...
