Overview: How Canon Cameras Stand Apart

by Blogger on ‎03-19-2015 08:46 PM


Inside all of Canon’s cameras you’ll find a few things that set them apart, and there are a few features you’ll find as you move up the line that people look for. Let’s look at them together. 




Now that you have your camera and you’ve read through our first guide on what to do with it, we’re going to get down to brass tacks. Let’s go have some fun, shall we?


Being a great photographer isn’t about following a recipe; creativity can strike at any moment and if you’re ready, looking for the right shot, you’ll find it, capture it, and be able to share it with friends, family, and the greater part of the internet that’s using the social media channel of your choice. 


That said, there are a few rules that can help you take better pictures. Here we go.

Overview: A Selection of the Best Cameras of 2014

by Blogger on ‎11-26-2014 02:09 AM - last edited on ‎11-26-2014 04:27 PM by Blog Editor in Chief


It’s been an evolutionary year for digital cameras in 2014, and some of the most common questions I get are “which camera should I buy for myself?” and “what’s the best digital camera?”. I’ve got five categories coming at you, making your end-of-year 2014 choices that much easier.



There’s a movement afoot just about everywhere to make things more accessible to everyone. That’s a great thing in a lot of cases… but when it comes to artisan tools it’s not. Making things hyper-accessible can mean making them less powerful, and it takes a brave manufacturer to say “no, we want to make something incredible for a small group of people.” That manufacturer is Fujifilm, and that camera is the Fujifilm X-T1.



When I was a little boy I was so excited about the return of Haley’s Comet. Happening every 76 years, it was an event that simply couldn’t be missed, and experiencing it was life-changing; for a lot of photographers the two year wait for Photokina is the same–it’s one of the world’s most important digital imaging shows, and it took place this past week in Cologne, Germany. Here are some of the most amazing things to come out of it!



After spending two weeks with Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-RX100M3 it has become a go-to model for me to recommend to all of my friends and family who are tired of blurry, dark shots and under performing smartphones. It’s not the holy grail of cameras… but it’s pretty close. Read on to find out why.



Going hands on with the Canon PowerShot SX600 HS for the first time was an interesting experience for me; it’s been almost a decade and a half, and I’m still a little surprised by cameras that aren’t black or silver. The SX600 I pulled out of the box is white with silver accents, and it’s a compact, good looking little camera. The question everyone wants to know: how good is it?? Let’s take a look and find out!

In the digital age we live in today, it’s never been easier to capture and share moments through the photos we take. From shameless selfies to group shots—it’s almost a given that any social outing will end in a spree of photos. What better way to celebrate and cherish these special memories than by taking it past the digital screen and into the palm of your hands? The portable and lightweight SELPHY CP910 Wireless Photo Printer from Canon is the perfect companion that will do just that, and with its fun, creative, and easy-to-use functionalities, it’s no surprise that it’ll also be an instant hit with any tween girl!


Review: Sony Cybershot DSC-H300 35x Optical Zoom Digital Camera

You’re in a weird place: your smartphone takes snaps that can only be described as “alright” and your point and shoot isn’t really fitting the bill. You want something easy – easy to handle, easy to use. You’re not keen on a DSLR because they’re a little more complex than you want (and you don’t feel like carrying extra lenses with you) and you’re looking for solid value for your dollar. 


In short: you’re looking for something like the Sony Cybershot DSC-H300. Let’s take a look at it together.

The days of having to go to the drugstore to get your film processed and order prints are long behind us but even with the advance of digital cameras, a lot of people still don’t realize just how easy it can be to get high quality prints at home. Even if you already have a colour printer at home, it's well worth looking at photo printers. With these you can get superbly high quality photos printed that are suitable for framing or to put into albums. It’s the best of both worlds. No longer are your digital photos trapped in the computer, and you can conveniently get great looking prints any time you want.


First Look: Fujifilm's new X-T1 Digital Camera

Fujifilm has announced the latest entry in the popular X-series, the Fujifilm X-T1 digital camera. Fusing high performance optics with a compact system camera body, the X-T1 is focused on delivering a premium photography experience in a stylish body.


Fujifilm has been at this game for a while, and it’s paid off. It may seem niche, but having a camera that looks and feels like a traditional camera while giving you the performance of a cutting edge digital camera has struck a chord with a lot of photographers, myself included. There are some great new features about the X-T1, so let’s take a look.
