Eos R Vs Nikon Z6

Below, a Canon EOS R vs Nikon Z6 comparison: The MAIN REASON I would choose the Canon EOS R over the Nikon Z 6 in 2019 by Manny Ortiz (EOS R vs Nikon Z6)


Above: This researcher created an algorithm that removes the water from underwater images by Scientific American:

Why do all the pictures you take underwater look blandly blue-green? The answer has to do with how light travels through water. Derya Akkaynak, an oceangoing engineer from the University of Haifa, has figured out a way to recover the colorful brilliance of the deep.

Review: Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L USM (One of the Best Zooms Around) – The Phoblographer:

Although the Canon RF 28-70mm f2 L USM is a massive lens, it’s also understandably so. The photographer who will spring for this lens really needs the extra stop of light and genuinely wants super high-quality images. That’s what you’re going to get with the Canon RF 28-70mm f2 L USM. Couple this with better autofocusing abilities that have come out recently and the exemplary build quality, and you’ve got an excellent lens–on paper.


Review: Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM – The Phoblographer:

The Canon RF 85mm f1.2 L USM produces truly beautiful bokeh, excellent sharpness, plenty of micro-contrast, and overall exceptional image quality. Its performance is quite snappy as well and it’s capable of focusing and tracking fast-moving subjects quickly and accurately. True to Canon’s heritage, this lens is built like a tank and features some of the best weather sealing we’ve seen
