Canon EOS R6 Review – Buried Under The Competition?

Canon EOS R6 Review

Here is a Canon EOS R6 review. It’s true that the EOS R6 gets less attention than its more talked sibling, the EOS R5. But is it also buried under the competition?

That’s what the excellent review by YCImaging seems to suggest. For sure the EOS R6 flies a bit under the radar. I think it doesn’t get the attention it deserves. There are many features that the R6 shares with the EOS R5, a class leading autofocus system for instance, and the R6 has an imaging sensor derived not less than from the flagship EOS-1D X Mark III. Enough said, here comes the video review.

You can follow YCImaging on Instagram and Twitter.

Canon Silently Teases The Upcoming 8K Video Camera

8k Video

In a very quiet and untypical move, Canon released a teaser video for its upcoming 8K video camera.

Canon Japan released a new video with information about the 8K camera, which according to our sources is already undergoing field testing. The 12 minutes video features interviews with Japanese camera operators and filmmakers.

In the video the 8K camera is described to form factor very similar to the EOS C300, and is operated in the same way. To get the benefits of 8K recording you need also an “8K Conversion Box”. While the camera is shown in the video, unfortunately no specifications are revealed.

The Canon 65mm f/0.75 Was Made For X-RAY Machines, And This Guy Shot A Video With It

Canon 65mm F/0.75

I have to admit I never heard of the Canon 65mm f/0.75 lens, made for X-Ray machines. It’s a very rare lens, and one of the fastest ever built.

Mathieu Stern adapted the Canon 65mm f/0.75 to a Sony mirrorless camera, and shot a short video entirely at f/0.75. Wait for “The Witch” to start to see an f/0.75 lens used for video.

Below you can see a photo shot with the Canon 65mm lens.

Must be a challenge to properly focus with f/0.75. More images shot with the 65mm f/0.75 can be seen on his website and Instagram.

Canon also made a 50mm f/0.75 lens for X-Ray machines. If you are interested in more exotic lenses, have a look at Mathieu Stern’s online ‘Weird Lenses Museum‘.
