Canon Announces EOS-1D X Mark II 4K DSLR

Canon EOS-1D X Mark II
After a long wait, Canon has finally announced a 4K DSLR addition to their EOS line. This comes about a month after Nikon announced 2 4K DSLRs at CES: the Nikon D5 and D5000. Fortunately for Canon fans, the 1D X Mark II appears to be better suited for 4K video than either Nikon.

Hi, I'm looking to invest in a wireless monitor that I can use with my Canon 5D (mark II) while operating a DJI Ronin-M. The goal is to have a monitor that someone can reference while using the Ronins remote control so another operator can focus on their surroundings and moving with the Ronin. Price isn't a huge issue but obviously I'd rather not spend a ton if I don't have to. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

BR Optics Solves Color Fringing in Canon’s New EF 35mm f/1.4 L II USM Lens

BR Optics reduces color fringing in Canon’s New EF 35mm f/1.4 L II USM Lens

A lens’s optical characteristics can’t be determined at face value — that’s why it’s important for a manufacturer to note these distinctions with as much clarity and pomp as possible. But why should anyone care that Canon’s new technology reduces color fringing in their EF 35mm f/1.4 L II USM lens? Because chromatic aberration is an undesirable type of distortion causing a lens to fail at focusing all colors at the same convergence point; the result being to manifest itself as “fringes” of color along those boundaries separating dark and bright parts of an image.

Canon Announces New EOS M3 Mirrorless Camera

Canon's EOS M3 Digital Camera is made for enthusiast photographers

A high-quality interchangeable-lens camera doesn’t have to be accompanied by a high price — not if Canon’s EOS M3 Digital Camera is the camera in question. The latest addition to the EOS family, the compact, mirrorless M3 boasts a high-resolution 24.2MP CMOS sensor, DIGIC 6 advanced image processor and a 49-point autofocus system for shooting stills and Full HD videos.

I'll just pre-empt this query by making you all aware that I know next to nothing about cameras!

I'm a film-making neophyte to say the least and am using my DSLR (a Canon 1100D) as a video camera. I know that this is a basic entry point model for first-time buyers of the Canon DSLR range, but I am interested in what the parameters of filming with this particular model are and whether I would be better off just buying a purpose built cam-corder?

Dear all,


Just joined the forum to ask for your advice since I'm a budding professional on video shootings.


I would like to buy a video camera for corporate video shootings and outdoor shootings (as of hobby). I definetely don't want a shoulder type camera.


Eventhough I loved the images of Canon 5D Mark 2, I read, it's not very fisible to buy that one for shooting videos since it gets warm quickly and screen isn't movable. And afterall, it's a photograph machine, not a video camera.

Hi, I'm looking for a camcorder to make short films, documentaries, music videos, concerts reviews, and some low light situations. My first choice was a Canon Vixia HF G30, but then I saw the promo video for the Sony AX100 and it was mind blowing. My question is: Should I get the Sony PXW-X70 instead? looks more professional to me!
