You’re probably heard about the World Press 2017 Photo Contest. The contest saw 80,408 images made by 5,034 photographers from 125 different countries.

And guess what? The Canon EOS 5D Mark III (click here) is the most used camera among those photojournalists who won a price. The data was broke down by Spanish site Photolari. They also broke down which camera brands where used most. 55.5% of the photographers used a Canon camera, 30.55% a Nikon, 8.3% a Fuji, the rest is Pentax and Leica. Sony is not among the bunch, no one cares to use it for professional assignments (just kidding).

The used cameras are shown below.

My guess is the Canon EOS 5D Mark III will remain a bestseller for long time, despite the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has been announced and is available. The EOS 5D Mark III is just a great DSLRs, and that’s not going to change soon.

Canon promotes CMOS sensor technology touting exciting prospects (Canon ME20F-SH)

Canon Promotes CMOS Sensor Technology Touting Exciting Prospects (Canon ME20F-SH)

Canon posted a rather theatrical (at least at the beginning) video to underline the low light features of the company’s CMOS sensors.

A moonbow is a natural phenomenon that can only be seen when the appropriate lunar brightness, angle of elevation and levels of moisture in the air align. They are so rare that in Hawaii it is said they bring happiness to those who see them. Recently, Canon succeeded in capturing video of a moonbow, which would prove difficult to see with the naked eye, using an ultra-high-sensitivity CMOS sensor. Additionally, using a 250 million pixel ultra-high-pixel-count CMOS sensor, Canon succeeded in capturing* video in which the lettering on the side of a plane flying approximately 18 km away could be clearly read. “Exciting Prospects for CMOS Sensors,” a video introducing these technologies, is now available to view on the Canon Video Square.

The video is here.

This is about the pioneering technology featured in the Canon ME20F-SH (images below), a commercially available multi-purpose camera that goes up to ISO 4M; it’s yours if you have $20,000 to spend.
