DPReview posted their full review of the ultra-compact Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II. While they found a lot of good, some things did disappoint the reviewer.

From their conclusion (emphasis mine):

The PowerShot G9 X II is very appealing: it’s as small a traditionally styled camera with a 1″ sensor as you’ll find and its touch interface makes it easy to pick up and use. It has a broad feature set, generally responsive performance and shooting modes for both beginners and more advanced users.

[…] the G9 X II is let down by its lens, JPEG processing and battery life that requires buying at least one spare. If you’re set on a Canon, moving up to the PowerShot G7 X II is a smart idea, assuming that you have an extra $200 available. The Sony RX100 and RX100 II are also worth consideration, though we think that Canon offers a better user experienceRead the review…

It’s not all bad, the sensor produces “vivid, pleasing color” and there is “fast burst shooting with large buffer”. DPReview’s sample photos are here.

Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS Against the Competition (LensRentals)

Canon EF 85mm F/1.4L IS Against The Competition (LensRentals)

Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS at a glance:

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/22
  • One GMo Aspherical Element
  • Air Sphere and Fluorine Coatings
  • Ring-Type Ultrasonic Motor AF System
  • Optical Image Stabilization
  • Dust- and Water-Resistant Construction
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

LensRentals reviewed the new Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS. They appear pretty fond of it.

From the conclusion:

The Canon EF 85mm f1.2L II is the standard and is really middle of the road in this comparison. It’s a great lens with that dreamy bokeh but is the most expensive and is slow to focus. The Canon EF 85mm f1.4L IS performed amazingly with everything I threw at it. It’s sharper than the 1.2, faster, and has image stabilization but is still pretty expensive. The budget Sigma 85mm f1.4 Art lens is sharp and quick but is really heavy. My new choice to keep in my camera bag for a wedding is definitely going to be the new Canon EF 85mm f1.4L IS for the image stabilization alone. That adds a whole new layer to the focal length and is a great addition. Read the review…

Steve Huff posted his review of the new Canon EOS M100 (specifications, and price in your country), Canon’s latest and most entry-level mirrorless camera.

From his conclusion:

If you are starting out and want a small mirrorless, check it out.

If you want an upgrade from your phone, this will do it without killing your bank acct.

If you want a small “cute” camera that can fit in a bag, purse, or big pocket then the M100 should be on your list

If you want a great travel camera for video or photo without spending huge money on a serious camera with more features, the M100 should be looked at.

If you want to get into VLOGGING without spending a ton up from I would recommend the Canon M6 as it has a mic input but even the M100 can do for you in the beginning. The video AF is very quick and snappy. IQ is nice and color is typical Canon. Which is good.

So for beginners, those who want to upgrade from a phone, anyone getting into vlogging, those who travel and want small or anyone who just wants a fun point and shoot style IC camera. Read the review…

The EOS M100 is getting one enthusiastic review after the other. Seems Canon managed to do anything right with the EOS M100. More featured Canon EOS M100 reviews.  You can download the EOS M100 user manual, in case you want to learn more about Canon’s latest MILC.

Why photographer Armando Ferreira switched from Sony to Canon

Contrary to what most most Sony fan sites want you to believe, there are many photographers who switch from Sony to Canon, or who switch to Sony and deeply regret it.

Photographer Armando Ferreira explains why he made the switch from using Sony cameras like the Sony A7RII and also the Sony A7SII to the Canon 5D Mark IV.

Because Canon gear works as advised, maybe…?
