Photographer Michele Clentano on Capturing Photo Portraits by Recording 4K Video with the EOS-1D C – PetaPixel
Overall, this old lens delivers excellent image quality, and a good range of adjustments for a reasonable price. However, it would be nice if tilt and shift could be rotated independently, and if it could focus closer. If you can live with these shortcomings, it is still an excellent lens.
[…] I have way more fun shooting this lens at 8mm and have found that beyond traditional fisheye subjects, this lens has opened up a whole new world to me when it comes to shooting more abstractly — especially with architecture.
The IXUS 265HS / ELPH 340 HS is now the flagship model in Canon’s budget compact range. It’s the only one with a CMOS sensor, the only one to shoot full 1080p HD video, the only one with Wifi and it packs a very capable 12x stabilised optical zoom into a very compact and stylish body – always the trademark of the IXUS / ELPH range.
Its 10fps maximum frame-rate makes shooting with the EOS 5D III feel like slow motion. For me, personally, I still prefer the 5D III and the EOS-1D X because I like a full-frame sensor. However, though I absolutely hated shooting with the first 7D, I found the second iteration shockingly reliable, fast and sharp – overall it is a very good contender for the price.
The latest firmware update – Version 1.2.1 – for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR includes a host of important new features, including uncompressed HDMI output, and one of the first videographers to take advantage of this was underwater specialist Jacques de Vos. He has established a considerable reputation for shooting still images and video with a Canon EOS 7D whilst free-diving and has recently switched to the EOS 5D Mark III, with very favourable results. CPN video writer James Morris spoke to Jacques de Vos to discover his first thoughts about shooting uncompressed HDMI output with his EOS 5D Mark III underwater rig.
