Law And Ethics In Street Photography Explained In 20 Minutes

Street Photography

If you’re into street photography most likely you have already faced some of the ethical aspects and hopefully did not incur in any legal issues that might come along with this peculiar form of photography.

It’s not just a matter of what you should take a picture of (or not picture, the ethical question) but also a matter of what you can picture (the legal aspects). In the video below Sean Tucker interviews Nick Dunmur, a member of the legal team at the AOP (Association of Photographers) to talk about the laws that regulate street photography and taking picture of people in public. The video also offers some interesting thoughts on how to put together your own moral code of conduct for your photography.

The Canon EOS R Mark II and EOS 5D Mark V Are On Canon’s Roadmap

Eos 5d Mark V

Wondered what’s going to happen with Canon’s full frame DSLR lineup? Well, Canon still wants to update the 5D series.

New rumor has it that both the Canon EOS 5D Mark V and the Canon EOS R Mark II showed up in an internal roadmap document.

We think it is out of doubt that Canon will replace the EOS 5D Mark IV, sooner or later, despite the success of the EOS R lineup. And it’s also to expect that Canon will announce a replacement for the EOS R, sooner or later. Canon is transitioning from DSLR and the EF mount to mirrorless and the RF mount, but it will not be a matter of a few years.

While the source of the rumor did not mention a timeframe, it’s safe to assume that both the EOS 5D Mark V and the EOS R Mark II will not be released that soon. Don’t expect it for the beginning of 2020. At least the EOS 5D Mark V might not be a 2020 affair but get released not earlier than 2021.

Stay tuned.
