Photographer Paolo De Faveri On His Journey From Salesman to European Landscape Master

From Canon Pro Network:

De Faveri was born in Turin and now lives in the nearby village of Scalenghe, within a stone’s throw of some of Europe’s most breathtaking scenery. For many years he worked as a salesman for a technical publishing company, but in 2006 decided, like many amateurs, to build a website for his burgeoning hobby of landscape photography. He very soon started to receive interest from publishers. The company he worked for was sold in late 2007, and taking the offer of redundancy pay he threw himself into photography.

Canon Powershot G7 X DxOMarked, Scores Better Than Sony RX100 III


DxOMark felt the pulse of Canon’s  Powershot G7 X.

Canon’s new Powershot G7 X may score the same sensor as the Sony RX100 III, but the Powershot got a better DxOMark score (71 vs 67), and has more dynamic range. DxOMark writes:

With a DxOMark Sensor score 71 the G7 X ranks highly in our database rivaling classics such as the original full-frame Canon EOS 5D, the APS-C Nikon D300s and more modern designs such as the micro four thirds Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 and GM1 and outperforming the Nikon 1 series models with the same size sensor, such as the S1 at 56 points.

More coverage about the amazing little Powershot G7 X here.

The Canon Lens That’s Rumoured Since Years Said To Appear In November (EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II)

This one is real, the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS

Canon Rumors writes:

We’re told that demo versions of the upcoming replacement for the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS have hit select photographers hands for field use.

Gosh! This lens is spitted out from the rumor mills probably since 2004 (according to a reader) and for sure since 2008. Now again a suggestion of an imminent announcement surfaces. This time the murmurings say it will look similar to the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS, with a thin focus ring and a wider zoom ring close to the front element. And we should see it in November.

It’s the lens Canon will make out of sympathy, sooner or later ;-)
