Did you know you can convert a black & white photo to a color photo?
It’s not particularly difficult to convert photos. You need i) filters, ii) a tripod, iii) a steady subject, and iv) either film or a digital camera. The 15 minutes video below by Jacob Carlson explains everything.

And yet another Canon EOS R5 price rumor. Will this be the real one?
Latest rumor has it that the upcoming Canon EOS R5 will be priced below $4,000 for the body (i.e. without a lens). The source of this rumor seems rather confident that this information is reliable.
We expect Canon to announce the EOS R5 in June or July 2020.
Canon already partially disclosed specifications and features (1 | 2) of the EOS R5, and there is not much left to discover but the price. After the last specification reveal there are even some videos to watch. All R5 coverage is listed here.
Well, if this is real then Sony has some rather serious reasons to be scared. A feature-packed and game-changing camera like the EOS R5 priced below $4,000 will be a real menace to Canon’s competitors. Canon is clearly set to shake up the industry. It took them some years to jump on the mirrorless bandwagon and the EOS R was a cautious first attempt at it. Now they seem set to dominate the mirrorless camera market.
What do you think, is this what we are going to pay for the Canon EOS R5? I hope so since this will be my next cam.

Is the Golden Ratio nothing more than a construct of our imagination, something that we want to see?
Youtuber Joe Scott says:
The Golden Ratio is a mathematical construct that has been observed all throughout nature, architecture, and art. And some think it’s a universal constant, and divine. But… is it? Or are we only seeing what we want to see?
And he discusses the topic in the video below. I do not agree but your mileage might be different.
Update: the source of the rumor now suggests July 2020 for the announcement of the EOS R5.
Are Canon’s next generation mirrorless cameras going to be announced next month? Latest EOS R6 and EOS R5 announcement rumor suggest so.
However, it seems now the time might have been come and that the EOS R5 announcement will happen soon, along with the EOS R6 and a bunch of lenses. June 2020 appears to be the month when Canon will eventually fully announce their game-changing mirrorless camera, the Canon EOS R5.
Canon already partially disclosed specifications and features (1 | 2) of the EOS R5, and there is not much left to discover but the price. After the last specification reveal there are even some first hands video to watch. All R5 coverage is listed here.
And what about the price? We can only speculate so far. Sure, it won’t be inexpensive given the impressive set of features (8K video!). The EOS R5 is a game changer for the industry.
