Another Mention Of IBIS Coming To The Canon EOS M Lineup

Canon Eos M7 Rumor EOS M50 Full Frame Mirrorless

A new rumor surfaced confirming a precedent rumor: In Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS) might come to the Canon EOS M lineup.

IBIS on an upcoming EOS M camera was rumored previously but it’s good to hear it again, even if it is becoming a bit redundant. IBIS is rumored to come to the PowerShot lineup too.

We think it is very likely that Canon will feature IBIS on future EOS M cameras. The upcoming EOS M50 Mark II and EOS M5 Mark II are for sure good candidates for IBIS on the EOS M lineup. Both cameras might get announced in Fall 2020.

All Canon rumors are listed here.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS R5 Review – Animal Eye Autofocus Is “quite literally mind blowing”

Canon EOS R5 Review

Animal eye autofocus is a relatively new technology in the camera industry. Here is a Canon EOS R5 review that is definitely very fond of the R5’s implementation of animal eye AF.

Andrew Beck is a wildlife photographer for Wild Eye and he had the chance to field-test an early production unit of the Canon EOS R5. In his words (emphasis mine):

I’ve been fortunate to have spent some time behind the viewfinder of an early production unit of the Canon EOS R5 in South Africa’s Sabi Sabi private Game Reserve and I have been very impressed.

In this short clip I share some footage of the much anticipated and sought after Animal Eye Autofocus. The speed of acquisition and ability to actively and continuously track a subject through the entire frame is quite literally mind blowing.

The first clip where the camera identifies and locks on to the eye of a lion even though there is no light is a moment I’ll never forget. Bare in mind that that was with the Canon 100-400mm MKII @ F5.0 in very low light. Astonishing.

I’ll be unpacking more of the features and my first hand experience on the Canon EOS R5 in the coming weeks but one thing is for sure, its time to reimagine what your digital camera is capable off!

Here is Andrew Beck‘s short Canon EOS R5 review, see for yourself…:

Another Canon EOS R Camera Coming 2020, Cinema or APS-C?

Canon Eos R Cameras

A new rumor coming from a pretty reliable source suggests Canon is set to release another EOS R camera within 2020.

We think this could be either a Cinema camera with RF mount or an EOS R system camera with APS-C sensor. Both are rumored since a while. However, it seems we will know soon: the rumor suggests Canon might announce this camera at the end of August or beginning of September 2020. Just in time for IBC 2020.

What do you think, APS-C or Cinema?

EMBARK ON THE FULL-FRAME MIRRORLESS JOURNEY: NIKON UNVEILS THE Z 5, AN INNOVATIVE AND FEATURE-RICH MIRRORLESS FX-FORMAT CAMERA FOR EMERGING CREATORS

Nikon Expands the NIKKOR Z Lens Lineup with the Addition of the Extremely Compact and Versatile NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 as well as the new Z TELECONVERTER TC-2.0X and TC-1.4X; Nikon Also Announces Free Webcam Utility

Melville, NY –

Today, Nikon Inc. announced the Z 5, the new full-frame (FX-format) entry-point into its award-winning lineup of Z series mirrorless cameras. The Nikon Z 5 combines sophisticated features inherited from the Z 7 and Z 6 with the benefits of Nikon’s next generation Z mount at an unprecedented value. For those new to mirrorless or creators looking to push the limits of their craft with the power of full-frame, the compact Z 5 will exceed expectations. With an incredibly robust feature set, including in-camera vibration reduction (VR) image stabilization (IBIS) and the perfect balance of seamless automation and full manual control, creators can effortlessly share their artistic passions, travel adventures and so much more.

Nikon also unveiled the new NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3, the shortest, lightest and most affordable full-frame zoom lens in the NIKKOR Z lineup. Designed for on-the-go creators, the 24-50mm lens is the ideal companion for Z series users who want to capture it all – from vast landscapes and cityscapes, to street photography and striking portraits.

“The Nikon Z 5 offers the next generation of creators a gateway into the full-frame Z series lineup, opening the door to the limitless possibilities of mirrorless photo and video capture, while providing the means to share their creativity with others,” said Jay Vannatter, Executive Vice President, Nikon Inc. “With the addition of the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3, Nikon is introducing the smallest full-frame NIKKOR Z lens to date, providing an extremely lightweight, versatile option to help users pursue all creative endeavors, regardless of which Z series camera they use.”

Nikon Z 5: The Full-Frame Journey Starts Here

As the new entry point to Nikon’s full-frame mirrorless lineup, the Nikon Z 5 offers a lot of power and capabilities at an attractive price, empowering the next generation to begin their journey with the confidence to learn and grow as creators.

  • Incredible Image Quality: Featuring a powerful FX-format 24.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, the Z 5 is the gateway to the benefits of full-frame, helping creators to capture intensely detailed images, ultra-shallow depth of field and clean low-light shots with unrivaled consistency. From portraits that flatter, nighttime landscapes that astound and street shots that impress, the gorgeous tones, faithful colors, minimal noise, and revered Nikon color science all play a part to help users capture images that are true to their vision.
  • High Speed Performance and Processing: Engineered with the EXPEED 6, Nikon’s fastest image processor to date, the Z 5 is a dependable, high-performance tool designed for content creation. EXPEED 6 allows for a boost in processing power and energy efficiency while rendering subtle textures and small details with amazing results.
  • Stellar Low-Light Performance: With an ISO range up to 51,200 (expandable to 102,400), the camera effectively reduces noise, maintaining both high sensitivity and resolution to excel in low-light situations, making it ideal for shooting everything from low-light events to an all-nighter under the Milky Way.
  • Capture with Speed: With shutter speeds up to 1/8000, the Z 5 can capture fast-moving subjects with clarity including fast-action sports and wildlife. This higher maximum shutter speed enables photographers to better tame even the brightest mid-day light to unleash the potential of fast-aperture NIKKOR glass. When the moment strikes, the camera can also capture full resolution bursts at 4.5 fps with full AF/AE.
  • Silent and Smooth: The combination of the camera’s silent photography mode and In-Body 5-Axis VR stabilization provides quiet, stable shooting to document sensitive moments without distractions.
  • Vast Lens Selection: Whether shooting glamorous portraits from a studio on the sidewalk, long-distance wildlife, epic wide landscapes in the field or street photography, the growing lineup of NIKKOR Z lenses provides Z 5 users the versatility to capture incredible shots with sharpness across the frame and superior light gathering in any situation. For even more flexibility, the vast array of traditional F-mount NIKKOR lenses can be used via the Mount Adapter FTZ to enhance images with a unique focal length or beautiful bokeh, while gaining the benefits of in-body stabilization.
  • Dual UHS-II SD Card Slots: Equipped with two UHS-II card slots for overflow, backup or separating RAW and JPEG photos, the Z 5 enables photographers to shoot with extreme confidence when using widely available consumer SD cards.
