Canon Rebel SL1 (EOS 100D) Commercial Shows Skilled Toddlers Playing Football

Rebel SL1

A new commercial by Canon called “Little Big Shots” show incredibly skilled toddlers in a soccer game. The video isn’t real (obviously), it delivers the message that you can save big stuff in little things. That is: the Canon Rebel SL1 (EOS 100D in EU), the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR.

Canon Rumor: New EF 35mm f/1.4L Undergoing Testing?

Canon Rumor

A rumor about a possible replacement for the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L prime lens surfaced. There are neither specifications nor an announcement date (announcement shouldn’t be in short). Moreover, it is said that Canon may announce the lens when they announce a new full-frame DSLR (in 2014). Last year I I reported about a patent that most probably refers to the new 35mm.

The Canon EOS 6D recently got reviewed by The Phoblographer, the reviewer writes:

I actually did really like the 6D. I thought it handled well, had really quite good image quality and impressive low-light focusing abilities. There’s certainly more I liked about it than didn’t and I think it’s a worthy consideration for any Canon shooters looking to go full-frame.

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM
US: Adorama | B&H | DigitalRev
Germany: hifishop24

Another review that assesses how awesome the SIgma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens is. ephotozine reviewed Sigma’s latest addition to their “Art” line-up, and say:

This lens opens new possibilities for owners of APS-C format cameras for low light shooting and creative use of depth of field with a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture, normally reserved for prime focal length lenses. The image quality delivered, especially at shorter focal lengths is of the level normally reserved for prime lenses also.
