Bring it or leave it (your DSLR)? Canon commercials give advice

Canon posted four commercials about taking or not your camera with you (bring it or leave it). The video above shows wath happens if you take you Canon canera with you when your first child is born. The video below shows what happens when you do not bring your camera to your childs birth.

The next two videos tackle the same issue, this time with a trip to Australia in mind. First video is “Leave it”, the next is “Bring it”.

Photography Blog posted their review of the new Canon PowerShot G9 X, Canon’s latest super compact camera with an 1 inch sensor. The cute little PowerShot G9 X has the same well regarded 1 inch sensor as the Powershot G7 X. In the conclusion Photography Blog writes:

Once again Canon has produced a very appealing compact camera for those looking for something which is pocket friendly but retains many of the high quality features which something bigger and more advanced has.

The fact that the Canon PowerShot G9 X uses the same sensor as the highly praised G7 X is good news. A one-inch sensor in something so small and neat is not easily achieved however, and as such there is a compromise in the focal length of the lens. However, the 3x optical zoom gives you a little bit of flexibility, and is enough for landscapes, portraits and macro subjects. Read the review.

Canon EOS M3 review by K. Rockwell (best mirrorless picture quality)

Canon EOS M3 Review By K. Rockwell (best Mirrorless Picture Quality)

Ken Rockwell posted his thoughts and impression about the Canon EOS M3. You may agree or nor agree with Rockwell’s reviewing and writing style, but sentences like the one that follows have my full agreement:

The EOS M3 has the world’s best mirrorless picture quality because Canon has better color rendition than any other mirrorless brand. Canon’s real-world color rendition is far better to the critical artist than Fuji, Sony, or LEICA. Read the review.

There is nothing to say here: Canon is still the undisputed leader when it comes to color rendition. The EOS M3 is a terrific mirrorless camera. I love mine and it is always in my bag now. It’s also my new travel kit with the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM, EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM and EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lenses. If there is one point in Rockwell’s review I agree totally, it’s the advantage to travel with such a lightweight kit while still getting stellar image quality. Rockwell also posted a review about the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens.

Canon EOS M3 key features:

  • 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 6 Image Processor
  • 3.0″ 1,040k-Dot Touchscreen Tilting LCD
