Laowa 12-24mm f/5.6 C-Dreamer Lens Review (DPREview TV)

Laowa 12-24mm F/5.6

DPReview TV reviewed the Laowa 12-24mm f/5.6 C-Dreamer lens. Sample pictures taken with the lens are here.

The 12-24mm f/5.6 zoom is an ultra-wide zoom lens designed for mirrorless cameras. With an angle of view from 84° to 121°, the lens can be very useful for multiple scenarios. It also has a fixed f/5.6 maximum aperture throughout the whole zoom range which gives the photographer much greater control over the photo. The lens is relatively lightweight in its class. It is compressed to be around 3.3″/ 84mm long and weighs about 1.09lbs/ 497g. The lens is also compatible with 77mm filters (With the lens hood) and has a 15cm close-focusing distance. Easily creating interesting shots with good background separation. Like many of the Laowa lenses, this wide-angle lens also renders stunning 10-point sunstars.

Canon EOS R7 Hands-On Review (a unique proposition, DPReview)

Canon Eos R7 Hands-on

Here is on of the first serious Canon EOS R7 hands-on reviews.

At a glance:

  • 32.5MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF II
  • 4K60 10-Bit Video, HDR-PQ & C-Log 3
  • 30 fps E. Shutter, 15 fps Mech. Shutter
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED EVF
  • 1.6m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
  • Sensor-Shift 5-Axis Image Stabilization
  • Dual UHS-II Memory Card Slots
  • Multi-Function Shoe, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

DPReview posted their Canon EOS R7 hands-on review. From their conclusion:

The EOS R7 is a unique proposition. It’s easy to see The R7 as a successor to Canon’s 7D Mark II, especially given Canon’s R5 and R6 were, more or less, mirrorless successors to their 5D Mark IV and 6D Mark II predecessors, respectively. But that isn’t quite the case with the EOS R7, as we hit on in the previous slide.

Despite offering similar specifications to the 7D Mark II in many respects, its price, interface and accessory lineup at launch is more in line with Canon’s X0D series of cameras. As it stands, it’s a proper enthusiast camera with features and specifications that should satiate the needs of most any enthusiast, be it for stills, video or some combination of the two.

[…] the R7 is a respectable camera for both stills and video. The fact Canon is using the same Digic X processor found in its more capable full-frame RF cameras – and is using dual UHS-II card slots – suggests Canon wants to position this as a more capable APS-C system.
