Canon today announced their latest consumer-oriented digital SLR camera – the EOS 650D.

I mentioned briefly in my last post that I had in my possession an old film camera. Although, I don’t consider it that old. It’s circa 1999-2002 which doesn’t seem at all long ago, but I suppose when you think about it it’s well over a decade. Turn of the century technology. Crikey. Continue reading
I was given an old Canon film camera last week and in the bag was an EF mount 75-300mm lens. Being a cheap zoom I wasn’t expecting much from it, but after a play around for an hour or so I really quite like it so I thought I’d give a little mini review. Continue reading

The platform has come a long way in the last few years and evolved into a mature platform for mobile computing.
But it’s by no means perfect. Continue reading
I managed to grab a couple of sample images from the Canon website from the new EOS 5D Mark III before it ground to a halt. There are more but haven’t been made available yet. Happy pixel peeping!
As many of my more attentive readers will already know, I’m a Canon shooter, and this Friday 2nd March we will almost certainly see the announcement of the new Canon 5D Mark III. Commenting on rumours and new gear releases is not something I want to make a habit of, but since this is the camera that will officially make my 5D a geriatric (heck, it’s already informally known as the 5D classic) it is worth a few thoughts… Continue reading
