A video about the never ending dispute on what’s better among sensor size and format. Do you prefer full frame over APS-C and Micro 4/3?
In the video below Manny Ortiz lists five reasons that make him prefer full frame cameras over APS-C and Micro 4/3. Personally I’m a big fan of APS-C sensors and don’t see any full frame advantage for at least 90% of the pictures I take. I take pics mainly on travel and abroad and highly value every bit of weight I can avoid. For me APS-C, especially with Canon’s recent sensors, is the way to go. The needs of other photographers might be different, and if you shoot a lot in low light or at night then a full frame sensor is likely the better way to go.
In an unexpected and really nice move, a few weeks ago Canon released the free EOS Webcam Utility Beta software to help homeworkers and others who needed a webcam because of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Kudos Canon!
DPReview published a short review of the EOS Webcam Utility Beta. They write:
In the end, I have to applaud Canon for making the effort to create this software quickly enough to allow locked-down workers to take advantage of it. It’s free, it’s valuable, and it could really benefit a ton of people out there with minimal effort. It may not be the best solution for everyone, but for at-home workers that still need to keep up professional appearances, this is a fantastic option. We find ourselves hopeful that more videoconferencing software will be supported in the near future.
Is this the low(er) budget zoom lens for EOS R camera’s that we’ve been dreaming about – and how much will a surprisingly dark maximum aperture really bother you? Let me tell you now – this is one quirky little lens.
