Canon EOS 80D Hands-On Field Test (video)

EOS 80D

The usually not very Canon-friendly folks at The Camera Store TV posted an 18 minutes hands-on review about the new Canon Canon EOS 80D. Do not expect these guys to be enthusiastic on the EOS 80D. Never the less, a critical video review that’s worth to be watched.

You may also be interested to know that the EOS 80D features a newly designed sensor, with a pretty amazing noise performance and greatly improved RAW dynamic range.

A Beautiful Planet
Cinematographer James Neihouse, ASC will be presenting alongside Marsha Ivins, a former American astronaut and veteran of five space shuttle missions, about the making of the IMAX® movie A Beautiful Planet. The film, premiering in April, was largely shot aboard the International Space Station using Canon EOS C500 and EOS-1D C Cinema Cameras in 4K. Neihouse has worked on more than 30 IMAX® films including Space Station 3-D and Hubble 3-D. He has also trained more than 25 shuttle and space-station crews on the intricacies of large-format filmmaking.  Ivins consulted on A Beautiful Planet drawing on her many years of experience with filming in space during her tenure with NASA.

8K Technology 
Canon will be bringing its 8K Ride Experience to NAB as well. First introduced at the Canon Expo this past September in New York, The 8K Ride Experience projects video on large screens surrounding viewers to give them a unique sense of movement while sitting or standing still. By experiencing such high resolution imagery from all angles, the technology can simulate a physical journey often sparking a physical and emotional reaction. Additionally, Canon will be showcasing working prototype 8K cameras and lenses, with the stunning imagery shown on Canon 8K displays. Also on display will be a prototype 4K Projector capable of covering up to 100 percent of the DCI color space.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV – previously leaked specs get confirmed, and a price suggestion

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV – Previously Leaked Specs Get Confirmed, And A Price Suggestion

Everyone appears to be desperately trying to get his hands on some fresh Canon EOS 5D Mark IV rumors. Understandable, since the EOS 5D Mark IV will likely be the hottest camera of 2016.

Some of the specs previously leaked first here on Canon Watch got another rehash and found their way to the web. Latest murmurings has it that the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will feature 4K (as we wrote in July 2014), GPS and WiFi, and a touchscreen. All things you should already know if you follow CW. However, there is a new bit of information: the price. The EOS 5D Mark IV is suggested to go to market at $3,500, which is exactly the price tag the EOS 5D Mark III had at launch.

I think this specs are reliable. They also make sense from a pure common sense point of view. The rumored announcement date is still late Summer 2016, in time for Photokina 2016.

Stay tuned…
