Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x Technical Report Published

Canon EF 200-400mm

Image credit: Canon

The Canon Camera Museum published the technical report of the EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x extender lens (Amazon | Adorama | B&H). About the development aims Canon writes:

We revamped four lenses in our EF super-telephoto lens series — the 300mm and 400mm in August 2011 and the 500mm and 600mm in May 2012 — to satisfy professionals and high-end amateurs. This product was developed with the aim of going one step beyond these lenses.

This lens is a super-telephoto lens with a built-in extender that has been newly designed so that one lens can cover a wide variety of shooting conditions and scenes. The extender switch lever lets users quickly switch the focal length range between 200-400mm and 280-560mm in one operation.

The lens carries a combination of fluorite and UD lens elements to deliver the image quality demanded of the super-telephoto lens series while also covering a focal length range of 200mm to 560mm with just one lens.

This high-power zoom lens is further equipped with superb operability alongside image stabilization functionality, reliable water and dust protection, and excellent durability.

The design carries forward the super-telephoto lens series’ design concept and sensibility suitable for a flagship model while aiming for a high-grade feel and presence. The lens silhouette, which tapers from the front toward the mount, expresses the beauty of converging light. Each part has been expressly designed so that photographers can give their full attention to the shot.

Sony’s Upcoming Full-Frame NEX Camera is Set to Compete With the Canon EOS 6D Price

Sony’s RX1 dissected

Our friends at sonyalpharumors posted a rumor heard from a trusted source saying that Sony will challenge Canon (and Nikon) on the full-frame front thru the pricing of their upcoming NEX full-frame cameras. It appears that Sony will soon announce two mirrorless full-frame sensor cameras, one of them (the cheaper one) is set to compete with Canon’s EOS 6D price tag. That’s to say that the full-frame Sony NEX will have a price tag very similar to the EOS 6D (on sale for $1499.99 on eBay) and the Nikon D600. I think these are good news: more competition will possibly lower the price of the 6D even more. The full-frame NEX that’s going to challenge Canon and Nikon could have a design similar to the Sony RX1 (see pic above).

Canon UK Launches Canon Student Network for Aspiring Photographers

Canon UK press release:

Canon launches the Student Network to help students take their next step with imaging

United Kingdom, Republic Of Ireland, 23rd September 2013 – Canon today unveils a new program to help engage students in the world of photography. The Canon Student Network (CSN) is designed to help aspiring photographers studying photography or equivalent courses to take their next step with imaging and further develop their love of photography along with real world business advice.

The initial phase of the programme, which launches today, rolls out to 11 universities across the UK and Ireland and provides tailored experiences, opportunities and offers to help the students develop, as their course progresses.

The opportunities for students include experience events to find out what it is like to be a professional photographer such as “Shoot the Show” at London Fashion Week. There will also be events for those interested in most types of photography including sports, wildlife, portrait and wedding.

Education including tips, tricks and business advice from noted professional photographers via seminars around the country and online are also available along with unique offers. There is the opportunity to network with prospective companies and agencies to help establish contacts suitable for a working life in photography once they complete the course.

A headline photo competition, where the winner will have the opportunity to have their photo used as the main image within a major Canon campaign including print, outdoor and online advertising as well as in store, is a huge opportunity for any budding photographer.

The opportunities, benefits and training compliment and progress with the courses the students are studying. As the programme has been developed in partnership with the universities, it ensures the programme will be of benefit to the course work set and future employment prospects of the students.

Access is easy and free for eligible students. Those in first year simply need to be studying photography or equivalent course, within one of the initial 11 roll out universities and sign up to the free Project 1709 – Canon’s beta online imaging management system. Students in their second year will also be required to own a current Canon DSLR and lens. A course for students in their third year will be rolled out in the next academic year, there will be no extra requirement for students in order to join.

To sign up students need to register on http://www.canonstudentnetwork.co.uk/.
